    Just found a nasty bug on every bios for Cooffeelake (and upper cpu) for this laptop.

    If AVX offset is not set or set to "-0, -1 or -2", the IA AC/DC settings (that normalize vcore spikes almost as LLC) will be ignored and defaulted to 5/5 instead of right (actual) setting choosed.

    So for a correct functionality of VR IA AC/DC avx offset must be set "-3" atleast

    edit: wrong number

    You, you to the rescue again!!

    My update, I just received the magnifying tool, will attempt to cover those pads with Kapton tape then start the BIOS flashing process and set AVX to -3....want to boot the lappy first without issues.

    There is confirmation that 9th gen cannon lake cpus will be unofficially supported on this bios, cpu ids have been included in the bios too thanks to @aaronne and @dsanke for letting me know. @dsanke may update the bios just incase any fixes are needed but this is good news for all of us!

    anyone tried this bios on MSI MS-16L13- MB Z270 Chipset. Would be greate to know if it will go without all this SPI programmer which is tricky. Another thing - anyone could share what other bugs are caused by this BIOS?

    So far it is-

    NO G-SYNC
