    Let's compare bad QC to people dying in horrific accidents instead. Perfectly reasonable and level headed.

    Awesome and good job on your score, I did see that a while back.

    Now onto going after the 30771 graphics. It's impressive that we're dealing laptops here eh? Pretty neat.

    Well in my case I kept the CPU at 50x while other scores above mine were running 52x and 53x so I had to compensate to make up for that using my GPU. This is because I haven't got around to tuning the CPU yet as I was just after the GPU yesterday. As for your system, every silicon is different so it's really trial and error to see where you're unit is the happiest. There is no universal set value with this stuff and it's all about putting in the time to get familiar with your vehicle.

    Congrats on your new laptop!

    Perhaps...but if @QUICKSORT 's MB went south, and it was tied-in with the MBs in this recall, then it stands to reason that there are others, already installed...already in shipped units...ready to BURN!

    Btw...I heard Dell has a new theme song...though my information is unconfirmed, of course:



    Go to 3:20 for when the A51M does its thing!

    I am pretty interested to see if some thermal pad replacement and reapplication can push the system further. My 2080 seems to not be able to go over 29k yet will clock +150 core and +450 mem. You are right about the 8700k/8086k in this system. It's perfect.

    Oh wow I just noticed that you're running an 8700K in the unit. Nice! I'm tempted to put in the 8086K maybe today... hmm.. The 9900K is nice and all, but in this system far from the most ideal due to it being a red amber cole no matter what you do to it. The 9900K could be ran at lower frequencies and it'll be just fine thermal wise, but pushing it to the limits that we all want to ...it ain't going to happen without being in the red. It's not the laptops fault as it has a pretty good cooling system, strong fans etc... but I'm all for the 8700K in this beast as being the most practical and balanced IMO.

    Keep at it .. you can do it. :)

    This unit maxed out around there. I focus more on the clocks.
