    Is it a recent update that the m15 order page shows a 4K OLED option? I'm looking again as I've put my 17" 51m order on hold pending the burning graphics card issue. An OLED display would strongly tempt me to this model. I loved the OLED on the AW13....

    Yeah is the OLED panel the HDR400 certified one? I remember Dell said there will be an update of panel choices later this year.

    Hello, since Bios 1.5.2 the fans wont stand still in Idle. Is this only happens to my m15?

    Greetings folks. Sorry I took an extra day to post this. But I ran three runs on firestrike to get an idea of the thermals on the laptop. Power Mode is set to Best Performance and Thermal was set to Performance in the Alienware Command Center. No other changes. And the specs are in my Sig. But short version is this is the RTX 2060 with 8750h model.
    First picture is with the laptop flat on my dining room table ((wood for anyone that cares)), the second is the laptop elevated with a laptop stand, and the last is the laptop stand with the fan on full blast. I was happy to see that the temps never went over 88. But the temps are all over the place on the cores. So it will need rebalanced at some point. I'll run some games later today and report back with that later. So far I'm impressed since I got this for $1600 on sale at Amazon. :D
