    AW CC also didn‘t work. Do you have a No GSync card?

    Not sure how I would check that? It's an MSI card.

    So maybe that’s the fault?
    Because you have the same AW18 with the same unlocked Bios?

    Mine is a m18x r2 but the throttling issues occur in both cases.

    I feel for you, really, I have gone through so many "fixes" I was beginning to think i would never get to the bottom of it, i thought about going dual psu mod, i have must have repasted / reseated the gpu about a dozen times thinking I might have modded something incorrectly but in the end what worked was the sleep wake fix and raising the rear of the tablet up to optimize air intake...

    I am still pondering the dual psu mod as I am curious what effect it will have but I ain't spending 780 euros on a new one...

    Good luck bro, hope you get to the bottom of it.

    Did you manage to sort out the throttling issues?

    No, I sold the AW18 with a 980M.
