    stock ram is 2933 and no way would I flash and loose UV.

    How does it fix XMP? Does it now show up in the BIOS as an option?
    Have you confirmed this?
  3. Darkhan1970

    Darkhan1970 New Member

    yes confirmed it is now an option in bios.

    Will it be too much to ask under what option one may find it in the BIOS? I can't seem to find it.

    Advanced tab/ Overclocking performance menu/Memory

    Since you didn't update the BIOS, how did you come about this info?

    Darkhan1970 New Member

    I said I would not, I know this info because I did update. However even without UV after repaste I run a firestrike score of 20308 and max temp of 91, with UV I was at 88-89? So if you do update bios or it may be forced on you in a windows update down the road then for sure repaste as the system is cake to redo.

    I've yet to find that option in the BIOS. Am I doing something wrong?

    you will not have that option without updating to Bios 1.03

    Would you mind sharing a screenshot of the BIOS with the Overclocking option?
    I am trying to help a friend who did update.

    @4K2HD It might be worth mentioning to you because i think you're a bit mislead about what XMP is for.

    XMP is only available in your bios after the 1.3 update if you have compatible ram installed. It isn't an option for the stock ram as that ram does not come with an XMP profile on the chip. You would need to replace your ram with a compatible ram kit that includes and XMP profile, then the setting will show up.

    Yes, I understand that I need compatible RAM, not the stock. I am reading in other forums that even after the BIOS update the XMP option under Advanced doesn't show up even with the compatible RAM with XMP profiles. So may I ask since its working for you, to share a screenshot of the XMP option in the BIOS for us who cant find it yet, and perhaps even tell us what RAM are you using since it does appear to be compatible. Thanks

    I've ordered the Pro 17 4k 120mhz and it should arrive very soon. I have been using a Sager/Clevo for the past several years and I'm not up-to-date on hardware now. I get that the following items are probably overkill, but I'd appreciate your respective thoughts.

    First, I'd like to make sure I'm selecting a ram upgrade that will be compatible and whose speed isn't wasted. Maybe I'm just missing something, but I cant find literature on what ram is compatible and what clock the max frequency is. I am considering Crucial Ballistix SODIMM 64GB (32GBx2) DDR4 3200 MT/s which has a 16 CL. Can anyone comment on whether 3200 is viable here? Can anyone comment on the compatibility and/or limitations of this ram with this computer? Can anyone recommend anything better for this use case?

    Second, I am considering installing a second M.2 Drive (and, perhaps, using it as the boot drive). The drive I am considering is the Sabrent 2TB Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 Internal SSD. I am concerned as to whether this drive will operate well in the closed case environment. I'm also not perfectly certain that this motherboard/computer is gen 4 capable. Does anyone have any thoughts on this drive for this use case? Does anyone know if this motherboard/computer has gen 4 M.2 ability? Can anyone recommend anything better for this use case?

    Thanks everyone!

    It's an awesome computer you will love it!

    Although it is a 2080 Super Max Q, I've been able to get up to 120w power limit performance out of the graphics card, so it performs more like a non Max Q version.

    For the RAM I would advise to just upgrade with the compatible 2933Mhz because BIOS 1.0 doesn't currently support XMP even with compatible RAM, but it does support undevolting. They released BIOS 1.03 that apparently does support XMP profiles but it removes undervolt. Meaning you are forced to decide between either undervolt or the extra 300Mhz you get with 3200Mhz. Performance wise, with the undervolt of about -120v you get a significant boost for CPU so I wouldn't update the BIOS yet and stay with undervolt with 2933Mhz at either 32gb or 64gb RAM.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    I've installed two Samsung 970 Evo Pluses, It seems the case already has thermal pads which attach to both NVME drives. I was able to install thin copper thermal heatspreaders on the drives as well and reattach the case with no problems. Drive temps have never seemed to be an issue once I've done this.

    Does anyone have persistent or random audio static / crackling coming from the left speaker when playing audio? I have returned the 2020 version for a new one because it had the issue, but now the new laptop also has the issue. I'm beginning to think it's a driver issue?
