    Hey i have a p775tm1 8700k on the way. And learned recently has limited bios without prema, not sure if has option to change cpu multiplier.and voltage. Will i have ability if needed to underclock within sager bios or windows app?

    Yes you can undervolt/underclock it on the stock firmware if you wish.

    I believe the stock Clevo BIOS although severely limited, does now offer the option to undervolt and control the CPU clock speeds.

    Additionally, you can also achieve this by using XTU.

    Try and let us know if you need more help.

    Thats good to hear. Clock and voltage control is what i need most. If those are on stock bios Curious what is missing vs prema bios?
    Thanks

    a whole lot my friend. Those menus are just basic, if you ever see the Prema BIOS. you will be shocked with how much control/options/customization you have. Even some desktop PC motherboards don't have all the options that are in the Prema BIOS

    Benefits of Prema BIOS:

    • Restores user ability to overclock or underclock the CPU
    • Restores user control over CPU power settings (voltage, watts, amps) for optimal performance and/or thermal efficiency
    • Restores ability to control non-turbo CPU core ratio
    • Restores ability to control CPU c-states and p-states
    • Restores ability to control BCLK (northbridge) and FCLK (System Agent) frequency
    • Restores ability to enable Intel Speed Shift Technology functionality
    • Restores ability to disable Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX) functionality which is intended for software developers who want to use that feature and causes erratic system behavior
    • Restores ability to control RSR, Watchdog Timer, ASPM, ACPI sleep and hibernation functionality
    • Restores ability to control RAM timings, clock speeds and enables the utilization of XMP profiles
    • Restores ability to control selection of Legacy, UEFI and CSM to install whatever operating system is desired
    • Restores ability to control CPU-based DEP, AES (encryption) and Virtualization
    • Restores ability to control GPU scaling, PCIe speed and power management features
    • Restores control over Thunderbolt and USB 3.1 configuration
    • Restores control over SATA port configuration and Intel LPM. Having the ability to disable drive ports allows exclusive control over what drive receives the BCD/boot sector, system and recovery partitions during Windows Setup and eliminates the need to physically remove non-OS drives when installing a new OS.

    Thats some nice tweakabilty there, but from.what u guys said "Restores user ability to overclock or underclock the CPU" think u should have this ability in stock bios
    Though perhaps not as.efficiently :)

    Thanks

    Yes, the stock BIOS now has that built in to set the sign negative for voltage.

    There are some other bits and pieces like ram speed and most of the timings are in the stock bios too.
