    Really easy. It's in the Control Panel > System

    Bottom of System screen will have "Windows Activation" and the product key

    Funny you mention that as that was one of the reasons I returned my m15 for the m17. The 400 Nit brightness makes a big difference when being outside. If I wanted to just chill on my porch and watch something the m15 just wasn't bright enough. I haven't used a TN panel since my Alienware 17X r2. And the viewable angles are alot better that I wasn't sure it wasn't IPS at first glance. Colors are a bit washed out, but when I'm gaming I couldn't careless. ;)

    Have you tried disabling the Stream support feature in the Killer network app?

    To find out your Windows 10 Product key that's injected in your computer's motherboard:


    Download the latest portable version of RWEverything and launch it as admin


    Click on ACCESS > ACPI Tables


    Then go to the MSDM Tab:



    [​IMG]


    Now you can use that key to install Windows but do note that if the key is embedded in your computer's motherboard BIOS, then chances are that when you start the Windows installation, it won't even ask you for a key since it will grab the key that's embedded in your computer's motherboard and install the appropriate edition.


    So what if your computer's embedded key is Windows Home Edition but you want to install Pro or any other edition from the get go without having to do an upgrade? Then check this thread:

    I measured the Alienware 51m panel at about 337 nits at center and 298 on the sides. Not bad at all, but don’t understand why they don’t go much higher and allow users to adjust.

    Good to know. When I run the benchmark on FH4 my stutter count is crazy high. When I actually play it doesn't seem as noticeable, so I can live with it.

    I have not tried that, didn't think it would have anything to do with the Killer app since I'm playing solo campaign. I was going to try to disable Tobii and the Windows overlay to see if either of those help.
