    Thank you for your feedback and testing. Appreciate it. Since you have a laptop which works as it was designed to work as, just leave that setting at default then.
    MSI users need to set IA AC DC to 1 to stop the horrid overvolting (mainly because MSI also combines this with internal, impossible to disable Loadline Calibration (LLC). The amount of LLC seems to be equal to a "medium" level used on a desktop board, but without a digital multimeter or knowing where the vcore read points are, impossible to know for sure. No schematics are available....

    I do not understand you.
    can you GET into the Bios after the automatic boot loops finish?
    Or is the laptop crashing and rebooting before you load windows?

    Tell me--CAN you enter the Bios?
    Make this clear, please.

    if you CAN enter the Bios, then set it to UEFI. That's how these laptops are supposed to be used at, NOT LEGACY. Period.
    If you can NOT enter the Bios, RMA it.

    And thank you for the settings advice, learned a lot from it. It's interesting how the same BIOS settings have different results on Clevo vs. MSI. On my Clevo, IA AC/DC Loadline 1 definitely hurts more than it helps. When I change them back to 0, I'm Prime stable at lower VID, with no more 'EDP Other" throttling when running non-AVX Small FFTs:

    I also figured out my TS Bench errors. The newest version of TS Bench is more power hungry and runs at lower VID, plus my NVRAM was corrupted after tweaking BIOS settings too many times. After a CMOS reset and bumping up from 1.175V to 1.2V, no more errors. :vbthumbsup:

    PS: Sorry for the OT, MSI owners. I thought my BIOS settings exploration might be applicable to you guys/gals as well, but turns out our laptops are quite different. :vbbiggrin:

    Nah MSI owners need to see this.
    Clevo makes a non cancer laptop with Prema Bios, which performs exactly like a "Mini ITX" desktop would perform.

    MSI makes cancer. MSI owners NEED to see this.

    If only the P870TM1 had a mechanical keyboard and 120hz 3ms screen, it would be an automatic choice for a lot more people. Hoping Clevo somehow sees this post.

    Did you or did you not hold down the power button DOWN PRESSED DOWN for 60 seconds?

    If you did, RMA the laptop. Either it's broken or the RAM is broken.

    You should install HWinfo64 and it will show you the exact part number of the RAM installed in your laptop. https://www.hwinfo.com/files/hwi_584.exe
