    I remember reading something about a firmware update for the NP9873 / p870dm3 and now I can't find mention of it anymore. Before I buy the external hard drive that plugs in via USB-C I'm wondering if I need this firmware update?

    The Prema Bios. I didn’t know if the thunderbolt stuff was separate.

    You should be fine. I was using a Apple Thunderbolt Display with my P870DM3 without any firmware updates, just Prema BIOS.

    Just make sure to go to the BIOS there's an option (DDI something?) change it from DDI 1 to mDP > DDI 1 to TB

    I was hearing rumors that the 3k screen with the horizontal line issue was corrected with a new revision of screens can anyone confirm this? Opinions vary so I wanted to ask some individuals that I trust.

    Have a sample of newer revision similar to alienware panel but need bios mod to function or you're stuck driverless/safemode.

    Wanted to get this notebook as soon as it came out but I waited for the kinks to get worked out by PREMA, Mr Fox and others. These notebooks are the last of a dying breed with the move of most OEMs to BGA. I am estatic i was able to get one as these notebooks as they will go down as classics to me. 2 1080s in SLI is the ultimate in power right now in a notebook. Looking at the specs and thoughts on the new updated ones coming out with 6 and 8 core CPUs I am curious to see how they will be cooled in this chassis. My wish was for me to get one of those but with the questionable cooling i opted to get the DM3 instead. I look forward to interacting with everyone and seeing you guys thoughts, fixes and updates to this notebook.

    Hello, with Prema Bios, it should be a straight upgrade to KBL. Pop it in.

    Hello all!

    I'm wondering if a P870DM3 with a single 1080 requires using both psus w/converter or will it accept just 1 w/o the converter?

    I picked up a barebones and might add a 2nd 1080 down the line.

    I think you can do it, but you will be near the 330w limit and definitely no overclocking cpu or gpu. Maybe someone else can verify.
