    Try this man!

    I don’t have anything set in the fusion tab at all in AWCC. Yes, AWCC changes to the cooling auto-profile for my games when I launch them.

    Have you checked with Thaiphoon Burner that your RAM doesn't have write protection on the JEDEC first? I quickly ran into a wall with this.

    If it's not, try disabling all CAS latencies that are tied to lower speeds. This should (I think) disable all the lower JEDEC speeds, until you only have 2666MHz or higher (which, if everything said here so far is correct, is the reason the laptop is defaulting to 2400MHz).
    Let me know if you get any progress with this, if not, I'll try to take a better look at it tomorrow. Video below on how to disable certain CAS latencies

    That’s up from 76? Seems reasonable. Seems odd it took them this long to release XMP this long too. Probably gonna see the same limitations on a R2 if that’s coming in March.

    This only further solidifies my first and last purchase of an AW system. Hopefully I can wring out another 5 years minimum like the P870DM-G.

    Has anyone else noticed that since AWCC updated, almost every .exe you run it makes the fans run at Performance/Full Speed? Its good for games but for Wallpaper Engine and other apps it's annoying.

    If this actually is accurate, it's good news indeed. Here's to hoping! :)

    sorry but there should not be any temp limit except for TjMax. If i want to run my silicon back to back against it's TjMax, i should be able to. Especially when people pay big bucks..

    seems like AW still has ALOT to learn. Especially when you call your laptop "desktop-replacement" which is not. Not with all the cancer firmware/PCH/ME embedded within the system.

    I have not noticed that here, but I had a typically ( for Dell ) hard time updating took two complete uninstall and deleting of the AWCC folder and reboots before I had it working again.

    I might uninstall and reinstall it and see how that goes. Its not like I can set profiles for apps other than the games it detects itself, unless I am missing something.

    You can add manually, HOWEVER I have found it does not work with any games that use launchers such as Epic, RockStar, Uplay etc.

    Which is a lot of the games I’m playing now.

    If anyone has figured out how to get it working with these types of games let me know, I wouldn’t mind trying it out.

    I could not get any games to launch from it.
