    @DaMafiaGamer Thank you so much for the guide and to all those involved in helping make this happen. I am debating if I want to mess with mine since it pretty much is perfect right now, but this is almost too tempting not to. :)

    My system had the Prema ME firmware update and according to @Talon, there was no issue with the Coffee Lake upgrade.

    I mean do not update ME after BIOS flash. The FPT Operation including ME update , it will update ME to my provided version.
    ME FW newer than April 2017 will block old PCH run Coffee Lake CPU and new PCH like Z370 or H310C run old Sky Lake and Kaby Lake CPU.

    @dsanke do you think you will work on a BIOS for this model if the 9800K's work when they come out with similar hacks?

    I'm hoping to have time to create and post some benchmarks next week, but here's something to note. This upgrade will cause G-Sync to stop functioning on the built-in display if your laptop was otherwise so equipped.
