    If it blows it blows , I like that , that’s my way of life

    Yes I went with all the highest spec so they can make money also while making my system perfect .... loll

    Ram is Kingston 16gb 2666mhz and my m2 is evo plus 970 1tb x 2 plus 4Tb evo 860

    I just remembered they even gave me solid discounts after I had placed the order and money had been charged, I now had opportunity to increase some SSD so as not to get any refund

    Yup, that's it. We probably got our laptops from the same lot that contained around 5-6 lunar light machines. :)

    Get the 4TB one from Amazon. Much better value.

    Warrany of any Dell system lies with the service tag.

    Anyone able to get the latest Nvidia driver to install? Mine got an error, forcing me to uninstall and reinstall a previous version, don't want to try that again if its an issue for others as well.

    I installed the latest driver through GeForce experience with no issues yesterday.

    I'm running the latest drivers. Installed today. Do a complete uninstall, disable windows updates for hardware devices and perform a clean install after reboot. It should fix the issue.

    Well, it’s very sad to say that we won’t be upgrading our upgradable CPUs in the 51m R1. Better start saving and get ready to sell your current 51m now with this additional confirmation of a new socket and chipset lol. And it looks like these are launching next month !! Much sooner than I thought.

    Thanks, that’s how I’ve been updating in the past, this is the first time I’ve had an issue. I usually do custom install and check the box for clean install, do you do the same?

    Thanks, I’ll try that if I get the same error when trying to update through GeForce Experience
