    I have read above, something about performance settings. Can someone help me and give me some explanations?

    I'm looking at undervolting my 9560 using Throttlestop. What would you recommend I use to test stability afterwards? I've seen people mention using Prime95 for several hours but I'm a little reluctant to do anything which is going to start cooking my CPU/GPU. Is there any balance to be had between doing a relatively short stress test without risking the laptop?

    The obvious question here (besides why you got 2 XPSes :D ), what do you think of each screens pros and cons.

    So here's the thing. There is nothing out there that will test your undervolt in a short amount of time. Prime95 needs time to run because if you're right on the edge of being stable it takes a while to find that out. You're not going to cook your CPU (unless your testing your laptop while it's sitting on a nice soft blanket), it'll throttle down with temp.

    Having said that I find that Prime95 28.10 will error out long before 27.9. This article lists their favorite stability tests:

    Marathon-Man:
    OCCT S
    Linpack (Max) (From Intel's website, not from OCCT or any other place or XTU.)
    P95 28.10 S

    Tough:
    P95 27.9
    IBT (Max)

    Medium:
    x264 16T
    ROG Realbench

    Easy:
    Stockfish (Chess, BMI2 version)
    XTU
    Aida64 (Full Suite)

    Walk in the Park:
    Cinebench
    Firestrike
    Booting into Windows

    Did anyone else get a LITE-ON 512 NVMe SSD with their 9560? (16MB/i7/512)
    Read speed seem on o.k. but write speeds look slower than competitive Samsung, etc. Did I get the short straw on the SSD lottery? Still time to return. Model CX2-8B512-Q11 NVMe LITEON. Never seen this SSD in this configuration previously.

    If you want to get an idea of what level of undervolt might work for the 9560, a few samples are posted in this thread and following:

    I love the AW 15 R3 minus the lightbleed. I had dell turn up to replace the screen - it was so much worse than my original screen, so i put the old one back on!

    Hi'

    I just received my 9560 and as some of you, I got the thnsn5512GPUK SSD.

    I also just see some people got LiteOn SSD.

    I couldn't really find any comparaison between thoses.

    So which one is the best to have ? And most importantly, is that normal that we got different SSD, and so different perfs for our computers ?

    Thanx
