    Maybe with a future bios version that brings also 2666 MHz ram support with it. It might only take a couple of years for Dell to sort it out

    My next try will be the conventional AX200 then.

    After that my 51m will be tortured badly:
    Repadding, Rockit 9th gen copper heat sink after ihs removal and conductonaut on cpu die, copper ihs inside and outside and 2080. Sealing with kapton tape, red nail polish (it has to be red) and a soft gelid thermal pad wall.
    ... And then of course the wait for the inevitable blow up.

    If it does not blow up by then I will shunt mod the 2 Panasonic shunt resistors on the 2080 board like I did last time with my desktop Titan Rtx and wait for the inevitable blow

    Dell **** support is refusing to replace the unit stating they will replace the scratched/damaged components and use "white glove treatment." They also called the issues "additional issues."

    They never did anything to fix the ssd issue stating they tested ssd's in the system in the repair center and that it worked fine. They sent me config images and told me the ssd's i was using may not be compatible with the system. (eg. they blamed the customer--me--for the issues) I don't know what to do anymore. I scheduled for upper management to call me within the next 24 hrs. Hopefully upper management understands customer support is to resolve and support customers, not blame them for manufacturing defects and damages caused by poor repair service.

    When I pay for prem. support for 3 years, they should ALWAYS use white glove treatment.

    Don't get stressed brother, Dell always does this. It depends on your luck I think. Be patient and keep demanding politely and they'll replace your unit. Also, keep bothering Twitter support, I've found that this is the best way to get what you want these days. The trick is to be patient and not give in.
