When I received my new Dell laptop some weeks ago, I started by deleting all partitions including system, recovery and all that other partitions created by Dell.Then I reinstalled a new Windows OS.
Of course, I do not benefit from the Dell guarantees and assistance, but thus I avoid juggling the Dell system and all their software and services, not knowing which one can be safely uninstalled or needs to be untouched.
I do this for years with all the PC I had before.
Asus, Lenovo, etc, have also their specific hardware system and software as well as Windows has his favorite tools and apps like Xbox and many more.
A processor is built to work at its maximum (allowed) capacity without problems if the physical and mechanical conditions are respected.
To compensate for the lack of automatic protection features installed by default by Dell, the BIOS thermal management should be set to ultra-performance, so the processor cooling fan speed provides maximum ventilation.
Furthermore, an effective external cooling pad should be used if possible.
And of course, in order to reduce background noise and to further protect the equipment, it is necessary to open and dust the computer regularly: dust can not be seen, but it exists and is the enemy to neutralise, especially when playing outdoors.
My previous computer (Lenovo Thinkpad i5-3320M year 2012) has supported the daily, intensive and prolonged load of Gig Performer without any problem for more than 2 years. I think my Dell will handle this treatment without a problem.
