    Any word if Windows Hello is going to be magically enabled with this?

    Waiting for QHD so hopefully I won't be a beta tester on that system also.

    A Dell product manager just called me and said the following (He had the 7 heatpipe heatsink vs 8 heatpipe heatsink picture on hands) :

    Any order with a 9900k will get the upgraded Heatsink with 8 heatpipe. (Regardless of the GPU)
    Any 8700k-9700k will get the 7 heatpipe heatsink version. (Regardless of the GPU)

    He also told me : If you know anyone who ordered a 9900k CPU area-51M and received a 7 Heatpipe heatsink, tell them to contact customer support now so they can get their Heatsink fixed.

    Well I hope mine comes with the 8 pipe. I just got a shipping confirmation that I should have mine on Monday.

    Wow, if these forums are of any indication, there are going to be a ton of laptop swaps.

    Man ... i just don't know what to think of Dell anymore ....
    I've bought like 7-8 laptop from them, 3 super high end monitor and i've always had bad customer support but never to this level.

    We're talking about 3-5k Laptop and they can't even communicate right ... it's beyond stupidity.

    Still only 7 pipes if you look on top of the heatsink:D Not all look on the underside. And it seems people love my nice pict from Jan 12. Maybe put up a own thread for the Heatsink mess. Then post the link over to Azor/Umar/Alienware on Twitter/FB.

    Both pictured heatsinks would cost just about the same to produce in the quantities we are taking about for this product.

    Anyone who gets the "wrong" one should consider carefully if they want to go though a RMA or hellish heatsink swap for minimal if any change in temps.
