    If one orders the 9900K he gets a different heatsink than the 9700K or are they all the same? You know how with Clevo P870DM3 you had the vapor chamber heatsink if you ordered an SLI setup?

    7pipe heatsinks + side vents are the same for 2070 / 2080 models, while the 8700 / 2060 does not get side vents

    edit
    : 9700k 2070/80 buyers do get same HS as 9900k 2070/80 buyers, (8700 2070/80 buyers should get it too)

    Your 9900k 2080 purchase will get the top parts (& the HS isn't a vapour chamber design)

    In section for fan sizes, it is either a mix of 19mm & 21.5mm, or, perhaps 8700 / 2060 gets smaller 19 while better configs get 21.5. Someone can check the fan part#'s, see who makes it, see if they're different etc

    Just FYI, the Alienware subreddit is not run by anyone affiliated with Alienware/Dell, just normal people who own these products.

    When you spend 3 hours trying to figure out why your 9900k is blue screening but your 8700k is working just fine and then it hits you! "you have throttle stop undervolting setup in task scheduler"... I feel pretty dumb right about now :(

    I agree with you guys. Even though I ordered one for work, I'm really salty about the poor port selection. My 2011 m17x R3 has a great selection (even HDMI In!) including the very important SD card slot.

    This is the kind of cost-cutting that just makes Dell look stupid in the eyes of their target demographic for this product.

    No need cancel or anyhting, just send email to the complaint/service department. Sales and the servie is tottaly diffrent groupes!

    I know since I tried buy from them etc and they just keep telling me they only help and make repays and customer service. So send mail to them tell them what happened and tell them to remove his name from your order and tell them you want some % off.

    THe sales guy did for 100% sure do something iligal according to their own Dells policies.

    Vapor chamber yeah right. He keeps lying to win over customers. Shady advertising.

    I bet his engineers are not skilled enough to integrate pipes with a vaporchamber for higher heat transfer than their current heatsinks.

    Is it fairly easy to set up an UV on start up with Throttlestop?

    Previously, I used Intel XTU on my 17 R5, but I had to set and reapply the UV each time i powered on/off, and sometimes it wouldn't even apply.

    Would you mind linking me to a guide on how to set up throttlestop with an UV to apply each time I start up my machine?
