    You cannot match color simply by setting the temperature of the display. You need to talk to others in the organization about calibrating your display to match their displays and printers. That calibration process will require use of a colorimeter to measure your display's output and create a custom ICC profile. The calibration software should allow the organization's color expert(s) to select their preferred temperature, brightness, contrast, etc.

    Here's a reasonable introduction to color calibration: https://www.color-management-guide.com/monitor-calibration.html

    The sound popping issue is one of my biggest issues right now. Will installing the Microsoft drivers reduce the overall volume/bass boost that these speakers have? I know it's not purely software enhancements as the speakers tend to get a lot quieter/less full when the laptop goes into battery saving, meaning to me that they're being delivered additional power to drive them in those states, but I'm not sure if those features are reliant on the Realtek drivers being installed.

    I should probably just try it and see. Thank you!

    I completely agree. The fan noise is ridiculous under medium to high loads. People in the office asking “what’s up with your laptop”. I think Dell dropped the ball and feel underwhelmed with many aspects of my new 7530.

    The extra volume isn't just through the RealTek drivers; you'll need the Waves MaxxAudio app from the Microsoft Store.

    Any update on your fan noise and display? I recently received my 7530 and I’m completely underwhelmed in many aspects, keyboard, fan noise, display, 80’s look and feel.

    1. If there's something wrong with your keyboard, you'll need to get Dell to swap it.

    2. Check your Dell Power Manager profile—oddly enough, the 'Optimised' profile is best for fan noise. If not, check your temperatures. If not, you'll need to talk to Dell again.

    3. What's wrong with your display? If it's a dust or bleeding issue, then once again, Dell Support is there.

    4. As for '80s look-and-feel, can't help you with that, sorry—that's highly subjective. Dell did have renders and images of the laptop on its site.

    There's no other way than to redirect most of your woes to Dell Support, because that's precisely what this machine is for—its warranty.

    Thanks for the reply. Hopefully my woes will dissipate with time. However, just in response,

    1. Keyboard, cheap plastic feel, touch pad and buttons, nub and black finish are meh.

    2. I’ll try the optimised profile and possible BIOS update in hopes to reduce the F-22 jet engine sound.

    3. I was expecting more from this lacklustre 4K display. Quality with matte finish screen ...meh

    4. Agreed, the look-and-feel are subjective. However, Dell’s design team could have been more forward thinking, especially for a premium product.

    I’m sure my thoughts will change in time.

    Thanks

    Yeah - looks like the Microsoft drivers aren't compatible with Waves. I'm fairly certain Waves is actually the culprit for the issues, but it does enhance the audio experience.

    If only they could release a fix... I won't hold my breath though.

    It will be useful to understand whether the underlying problem is due to too much heat or inadequate (or poorly designed) fans or poor thermal pasting (or a combination). Run HWiNFO, select Sensors and allow access to the Dell EC. You can then monitor the temperatures at various points in the system and the fan speeds and hence get an understanding of the fan rules. I wouldn't be surprised if the thermal pasting used during production is inferior to that used during development.

    Hi all,

    I'm contemplating the 7530 as a replacement for my MSI GS63VR 6RF (i7-6700HQ, GTX1060), which is dying for the 2nd time within its 2-year warranty.

    I'm an electronic musician and audiovisual artist. Occasional gamer. My plan is to use the 7530 with an external GPU box via TB3. I don't need a fast GPU all the time and it 'd be economical to me if I can use my desktop's GPU with my laptop when I need to. Then I need to render realtime OpenGL 3D graphics on multiple HD projector outputs.

    I need a reasonably powerful CPU, though not the top i7 or i9's. Looking at the i5-8400H as the 6-cores are getting too expensive for me. No dGPU, only Intel HD. That´s supposed to be most compatible with eGPU´s. 15" FHD display, no touch.

    I don't think anyone here has such config. Still curious about the thermal performance. I'd be disappointed if it couldn't sustain high load with this lesser CPU and no dGPU in it. Anyone able to comment?

    I also want my laptop to be quiet under light/no load. My MSI turns off fans completely. Can I expect this from the 7530?

    Much thanks, Dieter
