    I will be stressing my unit for everyday on-the-go use and respond to this thread if anything goes wrong. So far, it is handling my traveling abuse quite well. I will probably detail my usage for a period of 2-3 weeks and hope it does well. Now that custom fan profiles work properly with new BIOS update, I will get to working on my ideal fan curve for GPU since it seems all over the place.

    Also, do let me know if there is an option for single PSU that can fully power this unit. That is the current major downfall for the traveling part...

    Is there any metric that you can point to that says there is a 50% ratio of working/dead machines?

    Lol at meeee - I did just that when I bought my NSX. Within a month I replaced the tyres AND brakes for aftermarket ones. The discs were cross slotted & drilled, but you could still abuse them just the same.... I stepped on the brakes at 150+mph, and surely set them pads on fire....what fun.

    That's the latest nVIDIA Driver from Dell. I will not install the regular nVIDIA Drivers on my machine, not planning to fry it. Dell drivers ONLY if you want your machine to last.
