    Nope, no problem for me, have you tried a different browser? Maybe it spikes when the clip is prebuffering

    I know this problem. It is caused by NBFC in my case.
    It is always happening when i set NBFC to turn on fan to minimul level (12,5%) and the original asus fan curve is pointing to 0%.
    It is looks like that EC is set by NBFC to turn on fans but then BIOS (or something else) just resets it to default. This loop is endless ufortunatelly.
    Oh by the way it is always happening when you force to turn on fan (NBFC) under 40 or 45C (i don't remember).

    The BIOS is looking for specific CPU ID's, and unless AMD allowed for this early on preallocating an ID range in the BIOS's already installed - it would take a BIOS update to recognize it...even though the name is very close 1600AE vs 1600AF

    This article indicates BIOS updates with new AGESA's make significant improvement in performance, so Asus should really come out with a BIOS update with the latest AGESA version anyway:

    The Ryzen 5 1600 AF is technically a downclocked 2600 as they use the same manufacturing process. A great budget CPU for sure, but unless BIOS support is specifically added for it, I'm afraid you'll be out of luck.

    then it is time to sell this out , i ve already got me an acer predator 500 but seems to me that both asus and acer have no interest to support these models, i wonder if clevo would allow support though ;). it was a pain to find this when released in europe but as it seems it wasnt worth my time due to no support....

    No laptop manufacturer has any interest in supporting their products with bios updates. Imagine launching a few dozens of products yearly, there isn't enough man power to R&D all of them unless a particular model is very popular. I imagine Clevo has even less interest in this since they create templates not actual laptop's

    For all those that have On/Off fans... Download Notebook FanControl and select the GL702ZC profile. If set on auto it will adjust the fans perfectly. However, because of some unknown reason, when the laptop is idle with a temperature around 40 degrees, the fans will keep turning on and off, depending whether it crosses a certain temperature (41 or something deg Celsius). If that is troubling you, use Notebook fan control to manually put the fans on 25% (12.5% does not do the trick). Since something on my mobo broke down, which led to my GPU fan connector not working, my GPU fan is connected in series with my CPU fan (so whichever rotational speed the CPU fan has got, the GPU fan will copy it, with a slight drop in voltage since it's in series -> eg. it won't spin at 25% but 23% or so... since the speed is determined by the voltage supplied). That piece of software is perfect. Beats the ROG Gaming center by light years.

    at this point it's down to enthusiasts to mod the BIOS, but until something with significant gains is released at 65wTDP then i'm not sure those able to do will spend their time on it. For a minute the 3700 looked like a contender, but it was never released, only featured in some prebuilts afaik

    Has anyone 'grasped the nettle' and tried the newest Adrenalin 2020 update, 20.2.2? We've all been stuck at 19.8.1 since August. My eyes/brains no longer work without Freesync. Please, please send AMD Issue Reporting Forms. They don't even list it as a 'Known Issues'. I've sent a half dozen. To no avail.
