    Haha I like your style. Altho I'm not making F U money yet, soon I will be and i guess having 3-4k gaming systems laying around unused is perfectly acceptable? Lol

    Lol .... naa just trying to console myself, we have expensive hobbies , best way is just to get what u want and not look back cos there will always be a question of , is it worth it ??

    Like I have a MacBook Pro 15 mid 2012 , all maxed to 1Tb, wanted to get a new laptop after all these years , couldn’t bring myself to pay $5k for harddrive on a new MacBook Pro cos sadly that’s what am buying , an expensive hard drive on bigggg iPad screen .

    So as I was browsing for PC rumors , I stumbled upon 51M , the rest is history , I still have my R3 Alien 17inch bought in 2012 with Blu-ray and 3D Vision googles and HDMI OUT with all the ports to make NASA grin with envy , we just have expensive hobbies , we cry and keep buying them

    I noticed a problem today when my PC was overclocked. Ever since I upgraded to Bios version 1.5.0, it seems that my Wifi card doesn't like the OC and crashes on me with a "6062 - LSO was triggered" message in Windows 10 system events log. I noticed that this only happens when my CPU is overclocked to 5 GHz across all cores. It did *not* happen when I was on Bios version 1.3.2 (the previous version). Anyone else facing the same issues with new Bios? I have moved my clocks to stock and the error stopped giving me BSOD every 10 minutes!

    Haven't had this issue yet. That's strange though.

    The answer, sadly, is no—no, even though I placed my order like two days before the change, they have no way of having my in-progress build updated with their new standard wireless card without me cancelling and re-placing my order. But they kindly offered to let me buy the new card and replace it myself once I receive the laptop.

    By the way, I replaced my faded palm rest today. Dell sent me a brand new one which was easy to replace as I was doing the final tear down and replacement of thermal pads as the ones that I applied 2 weeks ago had caught plenty of dust because of getting opened up several times.

    Here's the brand new one after putting everything back together!

    As expected. Dell support goes around the porridge and has absolutely no desire to comment on the Burned Down Area models. Most likely been muzzled from those at the top.

    @SacraficeMyGoat

    You were absolutely right regarding the warranty where I was questioning why there is no mention for spare parts only "On Site Service"

    I got a reply from Dell Dubai:

    The replacement shipped !!!! And the fact that it shows as fedex ground tells me it’s coming from somewhere in the US. I wasn’t aware we built these here.

    Update: fedex shows delivery by Tuesday. So they got me a replacement in about 11 days. Awesome!
