    You don't create it! It's there the moment you install OC Controls! you just have to set it as read-only

    1) Install Command Center

    2) Install OC Controls but when asked to reboot, don't reboot just yet

    3) Navigate to the following folder:
    C:\Program Files\Alienware\Alienware Command Center\OCControlService

    4) Right click on the file named Profiles.zip then click on Properties

    5) At the bottom of the Properties page, check the box which says "Read-only", hit Apply, then Ok

    6) Now you can reboot

    Like all of you, I'm also bummed out with the r2 news... I bought my r1 in February this year with max gpu and cpu. In terms of performance difference, how much of a difference will there be between the r1 and r2? Is it going to be that much to lose sleep over? BTW... I would not be surprised if they make a compatible version of this new gpu available to the r1. It would be crazy if they they just give the middle finger to the ppl that went ahead and bought the r1 with upgrades in mind

    For gaming it will be minimal. The real upgrade will be when the 3xxx series comes out.

    And what makes you think that Dell will release GPU upgrades for the R2?
    They already aren't doing so and its just a pretty minor difference in the GPUs..
    When the 3xxx comes out they will just sell the new, improved and WORLDS MOST UPGRADABLE LAPTOP the A51m R3...

    Dell does not care about your feelings says the angel on my shoulder.. only about your wallet reasures the angel me. If Dell won't care about you, vote with your wallet says the angel. i feel better :) i think you should too. A company is created to make profit, not do charity (else it would be an charity organization). Just give them an F back by informing everyone how bad they are and they should not buy an Dell. There are not much brands left. but i would rather buy an cheap bga medion laptop than invest in any of the American/Taiwanese brands (looking at you Gigabyte)

    I was so close to getting the top an Area 51, thank God i didnt. This is just another example of Intel making you purchase new motherboards to match to there over priced CPU. Going to stick with building a new desktop based on AMD Ryzen. At least ill havd an upgrade path

    vote with your wallet is indeed easy, problem is i don't see 1 alternative that i would buy. That said, i'm still enjoying my 51m everyday and it's the best laptop i ever had. I do have a first batch with gsync and 1.5.0 and will stay on that till the end.
