    but it helps alot :p but sure, if ou have luck with your OEM CPU then you dont need an SL binned chip. I, usualy have no luck with my CPUs and buy pretestet -> i have done a few tests with my OEM Dell 9900k and my binned delidded 9900k -> pic attached

    Pretested delidded stock

    DELL OEM 9900k stock

    DELL OEM 9900K max UV (not gamestable)

    9900K_Dell_stock_UV_CB.JPG

    So my DELL 9900k with max UV (that was not stable ingame, just CB stable) can barley reach my pretested 9900k stock in terms of Temps and voltage. And the pretested is running -125mv now gamestable. So its at minimum 0.1v! better at the same clocks. But maybe my DELL CPU is just a very bad sample.


    my wife regularly makes jokes about me sitting outside with my laptops benching them XD


    I would instantly buy one... do you think its possible to design and produce one with teamwork? :vbconfused:

    thanks, 330w+180w ;) thats why hwinfo is reporting 510w

    I was mad enough to buy a portable 4K monitor to pair up with Area 51m

    Because now the discussion and comparisons have moved to the general category of "laptop", we should then define the term better. We should consider the size of the machine to determine a weighted ratio of performance vs size. Of course Dell could make a 2" thick laptop with plenty of cooling, but as we have clearly seen with AW17 and the A51m, they are striving to reduce size (even to the detriment of the panels).

    To summarise: I believe there should be a weighted score, eg something like [ performance / size ] to show you what is possible given a certain size. Size being whatever the user considers most important, thickness, width, weight, whatever.

    Indeed. (About the CPU that is..)

    Has any Area 51M hit 30K yet? I don't see it in the search on 3DMark...

    The focus for me is reaching the 30K Club (Fire Strike GPU score), I'm determined and confident to achieve it, for the sake of benching. That's my mission and I'll deal with the CPU after.

    Just simply talking about benching motivates me, therefore, thanks for theses conversations. It's really refreshing...

    Haha yea I totally understand. For me some of my best runs completed but were invalid... But I kept on truckin' along...

    What make model is the external monitor you got? How is the picture quality compared with the FHD on the Area-51m?
