    1.6.2

    After a reboot and adding the game to AWCC, it does not seem to happen for the moment, the GPU now maintain a solid 1700mhz. But maybe I didnt played long enough

    I recommend go down to 1.5.0 with a 200W vbios and when gaming set fan speed to full.

    Attached a PDF of the horrid state of the unit I got back from Dell...

    According to Dell the following were replaced:
    >Speakers, Heat-sink, Palm-rest and Mechanical HW $ Plastics

    I also recieved back detailed info on their findings regarding the SSD slot.
    They found the slot had an issue but did very little to resolve said issue. Stating I need to remove the standoff in its entirety.

    I was under the impression it was attached to the chassis/mobo! Haven't opened the unit yet because of the state it arrived in. Will probably do so once this is resolved.

    Oh my... found some old HyperX ddr4 in an old notebook and installed them in the Area 51m. It seems the older the ram the better the performance atm. I still hope Dell fixes this 2400 MHz problem... [​IMG][​IMG]

    It will not stay at high clocks by itself all the time. It'll upclock and downclock depending upon the load until you undervolt/oc it manually. That'll fix the clock and it'll stay there then. Try MSI Afterburner. Plus I'd switch back to bios 1.3.2/1.5.0 with 200W vbios.
