    Was: INTEL SOFTWARE GUARD EXTENSION endabled in the bios? if yes then maybe it's related to this thread: http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...locked-out-due-latest-win-update-bios.831450/
    also read: https://www.pcworld.com/article/348...s-fix-that-disables-cpu-voltage-settings.html
    @Papusan would know for sure if intel: INTEL-SA-00307, INTEL-SA-00289 and INTEL-SA-00317 that comes with this bios 1.10 are the reason for this.

    Thanks a lot! Appreciate the advice. What about the RTX 2080 firmware? And finally, is there a way to fix the bug in Command Center that doesn't let you adjust GFX power/ thermal limits?

    Cheers :)

    Pretty sure they added the limit on purpose. I don't think you'll see an official "fix" There are ways around it..

    180W VBIOS vs 200W VBIOS, not much improvement there so I'd stay on the 180W VBIOS 1.5.0 to generate less heat (remember the heatsink is unified.)

    As for your 2nd question:

    I have been on 1.32 for awhile. I see you have come around to my way of thinking.

    @Spartan@HIDevolution might be able to chime in on this. I believe this is a write up on how to fix that issue
