    Great stuff! Good job. Despite what a few may say about not delidding the 9900K, it is absolutely a must to gain all temp drops one can... the ONLY situation where one would not bother delidding and where the stock indium solder would benefit is in XOC situations, but other than that, the stock solder job is hideous proven by the extreme core temp differentials.

    All of my 9900K's are or will be delidded except a few to save for XOC in the future.

    Looking forward to your updates. :)

    M15 did not have an issue with failing GPU power circuitry (or whatver was the reason few 51m owners already had to repair their units for), so there's less reason for M15 owners to discuss their units ;-)

    So to fix the black screen issue I've been having, I am attempting to rollback my vbios from the 200w update back to the 190w vbios version. Someone here was kind enough to post a link to their current 190w bios, so I downloaded it. I've been trying to flash it using nvflash, but it keeps telling me

    Adapter: Graphics Device (10DE,1ED0,1028,08C4) H:--:NRM S:00,B:01,D:00,F:00

    EEPROM ID (EF,6014) : WBond W25Q80EW 1.65-1.95V 8192Kx1S, page
    WARNING: Firmware image PCI Subsystem ID (10DE.0000)
    does not match adapter PCI Subsystem ID (1028.08C4).
    NOTE: Exception caught.
    Nothing changed!

    ERROR: PCI subsystem ID mismatch

    Does anyone here know anything about this kind of stuff, or what I'm doing wrong? All I can find online is that people typically override the mismatch when it occurs... but I am kind of paranoid of doing that.

    Edit* Obviously the only way I can do this is to disable the nvidia drivers and use the onboard intel one, otherwise the screen would cut off. Would it be trying to match against the intel gpu as a result?

    1h Anthem, ultra settings, 4.7GHz, fans on medium. I gained a few °. I was past 90°C average without delid.

    There is a guide somewhere for this but you might be flashing the wrong adapter, should be adapter 0 and 1, one of them is the 2080. Maybe someone can link the flash guide for nvflash here

    Man you guys are helpful here. I'd be at a loss if it weren't for the ideas, etc, I've gotten from this forum. I've found some guides, but most outdated by almost a decade. I wonder how I can figure out which gpu is 0 and which is 1?

    Looks good :)

    made a similar test but played division2 over 1h. 4,7ghz, profile silent

    ist impressive what this Notebook is able to do with silent fans… we still talk about desktop components in a notebook...

    Well, after doing a little more research, it would seem that it is finding the nvidia card, not the intel one.
