    Man your 8700k gets hot dude. Is yours not delidded? Mine runs at 5ghz with no undervolt and stays 80c or lower on performance fans. My best cinebench score is 1540+ on 5ghz though so likely i am hitting a power throttle situation. I am looking forward to what you can pull out of the 8700k in your system for comparison.

    Going to have to disagree. If one makes claims at being the top of the line, the best, the world's fastest, then all these excuses should have already been taken care of. And as for the super high temps. That is a well known Dell tactic. They always try to send to much voltage to the cpu for some unknown reason. Not sure where it states one needs 1.35V at stock.

    The problem is the heat sink is unified. not sure who thought that was a good idea when desktops are having a hard time keeping it contained on "stock" heat sinks. (Not talking about aftermarket ones)

    has anyone ordered one without 2.5 inch ssd? if yes, is the ssd-drive-caddy needed for upgrading with an ssd later shipped even though? just wondering as i would put in a 2tb ssd i still have and don't see any sense in ordering a sshd just for making sure the caddy is included.

    For me, both the caddy and screws were included.

    You hit the nail on its head (some works/talk even close with Dell). Hide it behind such statement as this *feel that this post was of poor quality* is just sad. This won't adress Dell's problems/help their customers.
    Thanks. +rep. Yeah, power shouldn't be an problem due the PL2 short limits. But 4.7GHz (stock) should provide about same score as the throttling 5.0GHz clock speed.
    Can you remember what Package power you reached with mentioned clock speed?
    1540+ is more like 4.6GHz. Have you tried lower clock speed (to stop hitting your power throttle situation) to provide same or better scores?

    Really looking forward to see what you do since I have the exact setup you have. I'd love this to run at 4.7-5 ghz cooler.

    Also grats on getting yours.
