    Dell released bios update 1.9.0, with the possibility to adjust different thermal profiles using Dell Power Manager program!!!!!! It is working flawlessly.
    With the bios 1.8.0 I was using Hwinfo to control the fans and ThrottleStop to undervolt the cpu, but that was a partial fix to the G7 high cpu temperatures. With the new bios the cpu temps issue had been resolved, and I don't need to use those programs anymore.
    It was a long wait, but with this bios update my G7 is a notebook that I can recommend for anyone that wants a reasonably priced powerful machine.
    THANKS DELL for the bios update.
    One last detail. I replaced the sata ssd that came with the G7 with an nvme 1tb Adata Gammix S11 PRO, because I understand that a sata storage isn't up to the performance level of this notebook, becaming a bottleneck, preventing the system to reach it's full potential.

    An update about the 1.9.0 bios.
    My boot time is considerably faster now than it was with the 1.5.0, 1.6.0 and 1.8.0 bios used before.

    Another update about the 1.9.0 bios.
    With the new bios and using the ultraperformance profile for the Dell Power Manager, I was having zero problems in my everyday usage with the G7, with no signs of thermal throttling.
    However, when my cpu was stressed 100% with ThrottleStop Bench it consumes around 67w, and reaches 99 celsius, starting to throttling.
    So, I decided to use ThrottleStop again to undervolt the cpu at -.130v, and now at 100% load it consumes around 52w at 85 celsius.
    In conclusion, the G7 with bios 1.9.0, ultraperformance profile on Dell Power Manager and cpu undervolt via ThrottleStop became a well balanced system, with good performance and thermally under control, extracting the full potential of it's hardware.
