    Yes, connect the 4 red wires shown in the left image to the 4 wires marked positive in the image to the right. Connect the 4 black wires from the image on the left to the 4 wires marked negative in the image to the right. The color coding Clevo selected for the 1080 power connector shown in the image to the right makes no sense at all and could be misleading based on color coding. They did not need multi-colored wires, only red and black like the older wiring, and having a black wire carry power is pretty retarded. The older 4-pin connectors made perfect sense since red was positive and black was negative (as expected). They do not need to be connected in any special order as long as you connect postive to positive and negative to negative.

    Thats about 150w more than I could hope for....though I could probably cool it with a little creativity.

    Bumped up my 2133Mhz ram to 2800MHz and with some changed timings.

    2110cb in CBR-15 with stock 9900K is quite ok for an 4 years old notebook vs. todays new and shiny.

    Edit. One more with Stock clocks:)

    As a comparison, then look at the Cinebench R15 scores from 9900K in the Alienware Area-51m

    Please tell me that's with the stock 150w vbios? I was expecting the rtx 2080 to mop the floor with the gtx 1080 sli
