    Good. Let it all out. Some tech devices just don't deserve to live. I've done the same in the past.

    Strange problem, the HDMI port isn't working on my unit. I tested the cables and output (projector and 4k tv) and everything is working no problem. Yet I can't get anything to output from the A51m.

    I guess I'll try reinstalling the graphics drivers (intel+nvidia).

    Also, while using other laptops for the first time in a couple weeks I realized how much I appreciate the A51m keyboard and build quality. Top notch.

    edit: While every other device works with this cable, the Area-51m isn't playing nice with it. My other cable that goes into the attic works fine with the A51m.

    Extension cable that isn't working (but works with other devices): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MQYPJ2F/
    Cable that is working: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003XM73P2

    Anyone know why this could be?

    Your second link is a power cord.

    I suspect a different HDMI X.XX compatibility. They are supposed to be backward compatible, but that isn't always true

    In my model it seems different, it may be a different version of motherboard, I received my area51m on 03/13

    Can anyone here tell me what the stock 2400MHz RAM timings are on the Area 51m (9900k+2080)?

    Can the memory be overclocked in the BIOS or replaced with faster SODIMMs?
