    I was able to overclock the new Eurocom Sky X92E and @Swick1981 P870DM3 to 4.7GHz remotely using Team Viewer without XTU installed. ThrottleStop worked fine on both machines as well, but the Clevo OC utility does not appear to commit settings to the BIOS permanently. It has to be re-applied after reboot. Until the Clevo OC Ulility settings are applied, ThrottleStop settings do not work. Once the Clevo OC Utility unlocks overclocking, then ThrottleStop does what it is supposed to.

    I wonder if one could permanently flip on all of the OC mailboxes and registers using UEFI commands to write values? If so, those values should stick unless or until NVRAM is reset. That should allow ThrottleStop alone to do all of the overclocking.

    This is my exact hypothesis that happened today.

    I have seen it on this lounge, and it made sense since its pretty obvious, 25ms doesnt render 120hz, it should be way less.

    Was there an option to get a high response display from rebrands? I'm guessing the 4k display is slightly better at 60hz? I would be upgrading or replacing if so.

    Thanks for the reply, well anyone coming from a 12ms< display avoid this model, my P150sm 85hz screen overclock is 100x times better. opt for the 4k display or gsync model. i consider this a ripoff as 25ms doesnt work with 120hz, i cant see the difference between 80 and 120hz at that rate.
    Last purchase...
    Hope it saves the day for someone.

    Can the 4k panel for DM3 be overclock? Let say 75 hz or 100 hz.

    There are certainly some practical differences, although specific to my case, it's more of a brand transition issue. I've had Clevos in the past, in fact, I also currently have a P370SM, but still remain, for a lack of a better word, shackled to the Alienware brand. That link I now aim to break, and to do such, I'll probably have to sell all the Alienware laptops even though I was originally planning on keeping the Alienware 18.
