    Thank you my brother. I ordered it fully expecting this. This is not an off-the shelf Best Buy model. It's a custom order that I've specced out to the max and I don't mind waiting. It's not like I am without a laptop. Still enjoying my Area-51m until that arrives.

    Speaking of ordering, small change I've done last night. In addition to ordering the de-lidding service from HIDevolution. I thought heck, I'm already spending all that much so I told them to order a Silicon Lottery 10900K for me. Every drop in temps is going to help here and I'd rather have this from the get-go. Silicon Lottery is out of stock of binned 10900K but they are expecting to have some by next week so they will have the CPU by the time my Area-51m R2 arrives to swap them.

    Speaking of Silicon Lottery CPUs, I've had great luck with them back when I had a 6700K CPU on my Clevo P870DM, it wouldn't even reach 4GHz on all cores without overheating but when I swapped it with a silicon lottery 6700K, it did 4,.6 GHz 24/7 without even needing to undervolt it.

    With the most recent update I lost the thermal slider action. I just copied in your Profiles.zip and that fixed it, no uninstalling and such. (since it seemed to uninstall it before)

    Try restarting and see if it still works, its happened to me that it works for 1 boot cycle and upon restart locks again.

    Rebooted and still there. Did you mark them read only? I had to get my AWCC from msft store btw. not sure if that changes things but the temp slider was the last missing part.

    I thought this wasn't working anymore since I lost the 87*C option on the update. Followed the instructions again but this time selected NO when admin popped up for the control center service after the reboot (I think it was trying to over-write the Profiles.zip) Now 87*C is there again.
