    hello sorry my english translated by google. I only speak Spanish
    I am from Colombia.
    I read all the pages of this forum. really valuable for those of us who have a 51m R2 area.
    recently traveled to usa. buy an area 51m r2 with i7 10700, 16gb ram, rtx 2070 super, 144hz + g-sync + tobii for 1899 usd. good price I think ..
    I want to modify the ram memory for hyper x impact 3200mhz I think it runs at 2999mhz. it's a good computer overall good temperatures compared to my previous asus zephyrus. I'm happy with this computer even though I can't update (thanks dell) ... a 2070 super is enough for me. I mainly use it to run warzone, gta5, Red Dead Redemption 2 everything in ultra runs at 120fps + for this screen it's fine .
    I am an electronic engineer and I have specialized diagnostic tools. Today I want to share some images that I took with my thermal camera after 30 minutes running MW.
    i think dell has a design problem with this computer. a power adapter runs hotter. 230w 53c power adapter 330w 31c power adapter. why dell :mad:? I think the power adapter settings should be the same video password 0000

    Yep, @Normimb have seen the light. Dell and new firmware is an awful chapter. Avoid the new updates as plague or cholera.

    That's the 51m R1, the R2 didn't have the same BIOS issues.

    Hello mate, we appreciate your effort and we are looking forward to the result. I was unsure about doing it because Dell warn that once the BIOS is upgraded, you cannot downgrade the BIOS to earlier version due to downgrade restrictions. I've read posts from people who tried to downgrade and had problems.

    I've upgraded and downgraded a number of times without issue. Not even had to do a blind flash yet to downgrade can normally just run the old version over the top.
