    What language/region is this?
    Also is it setup for RAID mode?

    Hi Ultra Male, is that AWCC applicable to any new AW machine (ex. can i install it on my m15?) or is it a dedicated one for the m51?

    Thanks

    I was looking at compatible processors earlier today. I believe that the i9-9900T is LGA1151 and I believe it is compatible with the Intel Chipset that is in this laptop. (Verify these things for yourself.) But the benefit here: A little less top-end performance (4.5 Ghz Max, but you might be able to overclock it) but it is a 35W TDP processor... that is a LOT less thermal!

    That would be 10-20% performance loss (or less if you are able to overclock) for almost 1/3 of the heat being generated. (That performance is being compared to a i7-9700 here: https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i9-9900T-vs-Intel-Core-i7-9700/m821464vsm816180 )

    Just wanted to share something I thought was interesting.

    So I've been doing some testing and my 9700k runs pretty hot - like 90 + degrees in battlefield 1. When I test it with intelburntest the temps vary significantly and jump within 1 second from 65/70 to 90 then thermal throttle. This is at 4.9 ghz and -0.130v UV. Seems stable at the that voltage but I think these temps are abnormal. Maybe they goobered the thermal paste? Or possible faulty hardware?

    Definitely seems high, my 9700K with stock paste from the factory runs 5Ghz -90mv and I have never seen my peak temp go above 83C in any game. Most games it stays in the 70s. Gears 5 which keeps my CPU pegged at about 70 to 85 percent load for hours is also no problem and temps stay below 83C. This is with the balanced fan setting.

    So guys. I bought the huge 780w eurocom psu for my 51m and it works great. But i wonder did they ever correct the issue with the undersized adapter? Even at max pull in game I'm under 300w on the 51m. Hopefully they've fixed it so the system at least uses all available power plugged into it. Or is it still acting the same regardless of which single psu is plugged in?
