    I think you copy pasted the imgur link. You want to press "get shareable links" and copy the BBcode (forums), it includes the img prefix.

    I'm don't really have to time to use it, and by the time I will have time to use it, I might as well have standard rig with a big curved lovely monitor.

    Hello,

    so ive bought a refurbed area 51m with rtx 2080 and noticed that it only has a non gsync 60hz panel.. is it possible to use a 144hz gsync enabled monitor with this and which port do i use?

    also is it possible to swap the panel to a gsync one down the road?

    Yes on the monitor. I don't know about the panel swap because the panels on the a51m are much more solid and they don't seem to come apart easily. You would probably have to end up buying a whole other panel that has the features you want and replacing the whole thing.

    Good news the laptop is back, new unit, just opened to swap disks and check some stuff about work, quick things I notice is this one brought a sk hynix ssd and memory while my first unit is with all Toshiba, other thing is the panel have some bleeding compared to my first unit that was extremely subtle, so I guess this days gonna pass making a frankestein from the good parts.

    overall it feels good to run again everything fast in a laptop like this lol.

    what did you install/check first when you got your area 51m? I got a refurb one and want to check if i got a good unit.

    If you plan to change the panels keep in mind the new Mei Chei (unsure on spelling) will lose its G-Sync ability if you prefer the earlier BIOS revisions (1.5.0 / 1.3.2 etc.).

    Let us know how it goes and how the temps are etc. once you've applied the new paste.

    I done a complete re-install of Windows 10 and followed @Ultra Male guide http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/windows-10-clean-installation-guide.781178/.

    Then I installed ThrottleShop and messed about with overclocking and undervolting whilst gaming in between changes to see monitor stability.
