    I have got the 5 17.3" 5800H RTX3060 144hz screen and the Samsung PM991A in August for 1100 euro. Strangely with more performing CPU i got the 230W power brick.
    In my case the fans can go to zero. But i am always in performance mode (red light button) which seems counterintuitive. I am not sure i have hybrid activated into Vantage. I can check if you want.
    I did not tested the wifi much since i use cable.
    So far everything good, no crash even when pushing Blender and trying its alphas and betas and resorting to page file with heavy scenes that fill the RAM. If my work start to be heavy i'll replace the 16Gb with 32Gb.
    I have put the Nvidia Studio drivers and not the Game drivers since i don't do gaming that pushes hardware. I also bought W10 Pro not the Home.

    I think in my opinion the good you should have put the full power RTX3060.
    Btw how did you measured how much watts was it using?

    I heard that if I reinstall win 10 it will delete all powerplan so it makes quiet/balance/performance mode won't work. Is that true?

      I don't think so. I've put 1 fresh Win10 on this and then installed the wifi drivers and Vantage manually, and then Vantage took care of all the other updates
