    Congrats on your new system and welcome to the team! Try to repaste and repad and with a slight undervolt, you should have a great system. Keep us posted. Cheers

    Hi guys and gals,

    I just got my Alienware Area-51M with i7-9700k/RTX 2080 from XoticPC last Thursday. I tried overclocking and undervolting my CPU but I can't seems to get 5ghz/-130mV all cores without thermal throttling. Is there any advice on how to do this properly?
    Or maybe the laptop doesn't have enough heatsink to properly cool the system?

    Got it from Dell USA. thanks for the advice, will ask for both motherboard and graphic card replacement first and see what happen. They said I am the first one calling in for this issue...

    That depends upon whether your motherboard and the screen support Gsync or not.

    GPU, motherboard doesn’t effect gsync.

    By motherboard I meant DGFF board, not the laptop motherboard.

    Just received the Killer 1650 and installed it in my Alienware. The speeds are superb, better than the Killer 1550 and so is the range.
