    Haha nice one, I'm still on 1.3.2 and staying there for now. I did see windows update trying to download the new bios but just put it ahead for a month. I'll do the same next month ^^

    yeah I had to downgrade to 1.3.2 then disable BIOS Capsule updates and I also downgraded my BIOS back to the 200W version.

    I'm currently running the latest BIOS (1.6.2?), and have my throttle point back at 87C. I can modify the throttle temperature with AWCC.

    Seen this? Hope Dell won’t go as far as this mess. Bro @Mr. Fox couldn’t handle this anymore! Probably the worst screw up in notebook history http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/780m-sli-throttle-m18xr2.829574/#post-1092981

    As you can see... The other brands models didn’t run into same mess.

    Obviously I'm not sure of the cost of a panel that does not exist yet, but for reference the current FHD 144hz G-Sync panel (entire lid assembly etc) costs $396.
    As of now it there not appear to be a 17.3" UHD panel currently in production that has a higher refresh rate than 60Hz.
    I'm also not entirely sure if there is even a 60Hz with the narrow bezel form factor. (haven't cross referenced the dimensions yet).

    Maybe a new one? Area-51m, wont turn on
    You mean Dell have lowered the prices now as there is some time since they released this model? I mean I have seen some said the entire lid assembly etc costs a lot more than $396.
