    ** Question for 2070 Super users **

    Have any of you ran external to an ultrawide 1440p 34" screen (3440x1440)? My brother is buying an Alienware 34" 1440p monitor to use with his 10900K/2070 Super A51mR2 and I'm curious what his performance might be like. I personally have run my own 2070 Super machine with a standard 27" 16:9 1440p screen extensively and found it to be quite capable at that resolution, coming in almost neck and neck with my old desktop 1080 ti setup. I'm expecting the ultrawide 3440x1440 screen to perform almost the same as my experience with 2560x1440p screen but haven't tested ... thanks

    **4tb ssd nvme problem on Alienware Area 51m R2**

    I have Corsair MP400 4TB NVME PCIe M.2 SSD from my ASUS ROG G512LI STRIX G and works well with it..But when i put it on my Area 51m R2..it recognize by BIOS but cannot startup windows..I know the limitation storage from user guide..i hope there's a solution on it..cause my Samsung SSD 870 QVO SATA-3 4TB works well on 2.5-inchi hard drive even though the storage spec is up to 1 TB..

    3,700000 pixels vs 4.800000 pixels.

    Expect 20%-25% lower framerate in 3440x1440

    @Papusan can probably link in some older posts talking about what he uses for a notepad cooler and his ingenious method of filtering the fans before blowing dirt/dust into your Area 51m.

    I recently bought this one but returned it; I was going to mount it under my Cooler Master U3 to use as a backup to my main A51mR2 Gyriz cooler but decided it wouldn't be very effective unless I dremeled out a rectangle to allow proper air flow. This three fan kit is actually pretty good ... each fan producing about 85CFM and all together, at full speed, it puts out a crap ton of air. The U3's stock surface, though perforated, still doesn't allow even half of this kits air flow to pass through. So I returned it. But highly recommended if you take the time and effort to dremel out surface of the U3 to be one wide open rectangle: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08F33H9SB?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details

    Noticed lately that my games library in AWCC dropped quite a few games from its list. Particularly Steam games, has anyone else experienced this?

    (I know how much hate there is for this program and that its crap so spare me some of that.)

    looked at them but im going to go with these .they have a 130cpf each fan .
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01MZ6V...EC&colid=33V9CDBQ0ZTWE&psc=1&ref_=nav_signin&

    also got the U3 in basket as they have a damaged boxed verion for 25% less than none damaged box. im typing on the R2 right now . will instal a few games later . just trying to get used to the screen and keyboard . the laptop is not as heavy or as big as my MSI titan , in fact it dwarfs it , shocked really considering the R2 has a desktop CPU . the R2 also slips on my desk while typing or plugging in headphones but it is a very smooth carbon laminate finish desk . speakers are dreadful . not a patch on the MSI , really disapointed in the speakers . keyboard is a joy to use and so is the track pad as i hate the MSI track pad .. i use a mouse anyway . i have to say the txt and brightness of this 4k screen is brilliant .. somethink my MSI lacked . i wont be gaming much on this 4k screen only being 60hz none Gsync . but txt and brightness is amazing . key strokes are stunning .
