    I agree. It's a beast of a machine isn't it?

    The portability factor is what takes the prize. For me to be able to take my 9700k and RTX 2080 to different countries and have the same gaming setup anywhere is priceless. The performance of the machine is not too shabby either. It faster than my office's 8700k + 2070 setup.

    I got this from HID, I received a new system after mine dead two months ago. It’s only been a week since I had this one. HID has asked me to return it to diagnose the issue lol. I told them I’m not going to return it until I can get reassured that I will receive a new system within a week. I’m in the Us btw.

    The weird part is that I typed my system number in dell and it said it was a Gsync panel shipped with the system , maybe since they aren’t using the LG or AUO panels Nvidia doesn’t recognize it.

    Ah, HID, why am I not even surprised...

    In any case, you should definitely ask for a gsync compatible panel because you've paid for it! You might not need it now with every title flying out of the gates but in the future, you might find the gsync panel to be quite handy when FPS starts dropping down.. looking at you Cyberpunk 2077..

    Keep us posted man and good luck.

    I had the exact same issue when I had mine a few weeks back, everything stuttered...got micro stutters in all my games... the background animations of AWCC was literally sluggish and slow.. I don't remember how I fixed it though, or its exact cause, because I was getting a lot of BSOD and ended up reinstalling the OS two or three times in one day.

    I think you should clean install Windows again first, install updated drivers (turn off the internet during this phase)
    follow Ultra Male driver install list to the "T" and update your Windows and restart whenever prompted. This is what fixed it for me.

    Any of you have luck with Silicon Lottery's CPU delid package with this laptop and the 9900k? I'm deciding going this route if it would really improve temps "significantly". Right now I can't run all cores at 4.7 with a -125 (lowest I can go) so I have to drop back to 4.5

    I'm wondering if the delid service would get me closer to 4.7?

    Try and re flash your bios. Remember use 1.5.0 or less.
