    Hey there,

    just wanted to let you know that disabling Thunderbolt 3 in the BIOS is a really bad idea!
    Even though it is just set to Disabled (enabled is default), there will no longer be any output to the display.
    When I tested doing a blind BIOS reset - i.e. pressing DEL -> F9 -> Left -> Enter - nothing happened.
    Plugging an external monitor into the HDMI port did not show any output either.

    The only way to revive my F5 was unplugging the CMOS battery and giving it some time...

    And just in case you want to fiddle around some more, SVET's VBIOS and EC Tuner is able to mod the EC firmware of our Tornado F5.

    This is especially nice if you want to mod the default fan curves.
    Just for reference, my current settings are as follows:

    Legend: color = Temp in C, color = FAN RPM %,
    color = Temp Threshold Hysteresis, color = Table type

    Terrible news. My MSI 16L3 seems to be dead. It was tuned on, I had a meeting, when I got back it was already turned off. 'I thought that it's sleep mode although I disabled it. When I tried to power it on, keyboard light flashed for around 0.2s, that's all. Power charger green light diode was gone, but cable was in. When I reconnected power charger cable, diode was on, but computer behaviour remained unchanged. I hear faint clicking when it turns off. When I removed CPU from the socket something interesting happend. Keyboard light remained on after turning it on without CPU. When I put CPU back into the socket, light flashed as before. I'm going to look for some 8-gen compatible MB to check if CPU is alive. If it's not, I will be scared to try any different CPU in that socket. If it will be alive, however, I'll try replacing it with some emergency 6 or 7 gen cpu.

    Do CMOS reset and see if it helps. It does look like motherboard-related issue but not processor.

    Somehow it's strange. What could be causing the breakdown ? Talon recently had a similar situation. It starts to seem to me that a new generation of processors is killing this motherboard...

    This isn't because of Thunderbolt 3 being disabled. It's related to the same bug which caused black screens on the GT73VR when switching from dGPU to iGPU to dGPU.

    Changing PEG root slot 0 (or whatever the first PEG Port is set to, I forgot) under System Agent/PEG options, from "Auto" to "Enabled" will stop this bug from happening.

    I tried CMOS reset, disconnecting almost every part, tried different pressures on screws on the socket. Nothing helped. Rest In Pepperoni, I suppose. Now I have to look for some replacement.. That might be the case that 8700K mod is somewhat dangerous. I still have to test if CPU is alive.

    Might had been motherboard since it's rare for processor to fail, but it's going to require some efforts to validate each component though.
