    I'm very happy with my laptop, no bleeding, no dead pixels, I don see a problem carrying the 2 psu, the format is very robust and looks slick with the edges design around the body, I don't think is huge, looks smaller when you see it compared to other 17'' laptops around, the screen is amazing and for me fullhd its enough for this size.

    I got the black version and I do really love it, because its a matte color not completely black, more dark grey and it something that it matches my preferences.

    something I'm really surprise is the keyboard, it just feels right to write in it, I'm quite surprise, the touchpad had that little gap that we talked before in previous post, but its not huge bummer so I can live with that and its very responsive touchpad.

    I opened inside and I was surprise they included the bay and stuff for the ssd, so in case I buy a new ssd I can use it there, that was cool.

    I'm attaching my link to my benchmark in 3dmark, please if someone can take a look if you don't mind, this is the first time doing this benchmarks so any help will be appreciate, OC was set up using Alienware CC to 5ghz / 1.12 / -100 fans in performance mode and it does get hot over 90, so I guess will need a repaste later on.

    https://www.3dmark.com/3dm/34535752

    also cinebench

    thank you a lot guys to everyone here because I'm learning a lot about how to use this machine properly.

    Did you by any chance run the same test with the Dell CPU before you swapped it out?

    go to C:\Programs\MSI Afterburner\Profiles ** (wherever it is installed)
    open the relevant GPU file, for example VEN_10DE&DEV_1BE0&SUBSYS_08771028&REV_A1&BUS_1&DEV_0&FN_0.cfg
    add this
    [Settings]
    VDDC_Generic_Detection=1

    I had 8GB/1TB model so they couldn't do it for me lol

    Has a 120W TDP no increase

    Looks like I have a new score to beat. Also more proof I need to repaste mine. 5Ghz instant 100C for me lol

    Is this stock voltage or undervolt?
