Undervolting linux ubuntu 18.04 (XPS 9570 i9 32GB RAM)
View gist:9f9db7bc95396a48b240f5c3a42cf944
Very useful for the i9 XPS 9570 overheating on Linux. Since I use Linux for development, I don't use the nvidia that comes
with the note and also don't need turboboost enabled, even running dozens of docker containers. I was having problems with

Here are my temperatures before undevolting:

View Virtual box in Ubuntu (for that cases when you need a Winbox)
In Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, after the initial install with
sudo apt install virtualbox virtualbox-guest-additions-iso virtualbox-ext-pack
I also had to:
sudo usermod -a -G vboxusers $USER
Then I could enable USB 2/3 support in the machine settings.
