Hi chris38528,

nice to hear. I'm also interested in the m17, but I'm a bit afraid of the temperature. It would be nice if you share your experiences with us.

Thanks and congratulation to the Order. I hope you have much fun with the new Alienware. The new Area 51m seems to be great with Tempretature, in a German Forum some people become it this Week. I hope the m17 is similarly cool.

Congrats, I also ordered one the day before yesterday with almost the same config: i9 8950HK, RTX2080MQ, FHD 60Hz Display, 8Gigs of RAM, 128GB SSD + 1TB SSHD, Intel WLAN.

RAM, SSD and WLAN will be replaced by aftermarket parts: 2x16Gigs of HyperX 2666MHz, Sandisk Ultra 3D 512GB NVMe SSD (Windows, Apps, Virtualization) and 2TB Kingston 1920GB SUV500 2,5" SSD (Games), Killer WLAN 1550.

I'm also concerned about high temperature, but plan to do a repaste with Thermal Grizzly Liquid Metal as soon as the new machine arrives. Since I've repasted a few machines in the past, it shouldn't be that difficult.

m17: i9-8950HK, RTX2080MX, 17" Full-HD, 32GB HyperX RAM, 512GB Sandisk NVMe SSD, 2TB Kingston SSD, 1550Killer WLAN

Hey Chris,

did you receive your laptop? How are your impressions so far?

Mine has shipped, but UPS didn't pick it up yet (since monday!).

Hey everyone and sorry for the late update.

I received my Alienware M17 this past Monday. When I opened the box I notice that the keyboard layout was UK instead of US. Long story short I call support and they came to my home with a technician to swap the keyboard out with a US layout yesterday. 

For the temperatures, I have mix thoughts. With Alienware Command Center I can preset the thermal settings. But like Metro Exodus it got high. I am still learning the pre settings for the thermal settings. 

The video card is freaking awesome with no issues. 

I enjoy having my Alienware M17.

Hi chris38528,

thanks for the reply. Can you tell us about the Temperature and the Frequency? I test my Laptops with Prime95(v. 26.6) for CPU and Furmark for GPU. The best is to run Prime95 alone about 30 Minutes and look how high goes the Temperature and the Frequency. It would be nice if you can tell us the result.
