Like the title says I?m finally getting a WIN 2 so what are the most important things I should do right out of the box?
Not interested in upgrading the SSD yet but might one day just looking for performance tweaks to get it running the best I could.
I know using XTU to undervolt but do I have to go into the bios to change the Wattage and how is that done?
Is there an easy guide to set up Windows and change it to English from Chinese?
Basically all I?m asking is there a step by step guide to first time set up?
Thanks guys and I guess better late than never.

you don't actually need to go into the bios for anything, though there are a couple options in there that may interest you, not sure what it's called but one is for the SSD that presumably makes it run cooler.

but for wattage, just do all that through intel XTU, install, restart, then use.

Windows 10 defaults to english.

Do a virus scan on it with like, bitdefender or something, there were some very rare cases of malware, but that was only early units and it was probably like, 1/1000.
as far as performance tweaks, that's all XTU related stuff.

there are some graphics settings you can play with, like turning off AA/AF and Vsync, but those options are generally pretty limits, there's no nvidia-inspecter like programs for intel that i can find for fine tuning graphics settings.

You need at least to disable DPTF in the bios

Was wondering what the Pros and Cons are between the Win1 and Win2. Hopefully will be able to get one with 256GB-512GB SSD, but besides that, any Pros/Cons between the Devices?

The Win 2 is about twice as powerful as the original Win for PC Games.
Wish I could add more but I don?t have either device yet but I ordered a Win 2.

OK, cool. Hopefully I can Order a Win2 on Monday/Tuesday, if everything goes the way I am hoping. Kind of having a confusing Weekend due to VA that I need to Confirm with them on.

Edit - Never mind. Highly likely, it is a VA Error :( . The wait continues
