    If you take the plunge let me know if it works. That'd probably be my next upgrade.

    Speak to your reseller there could be a motherboard issue.

    I've messaged XMG to see if I can get a confirmation beforehand so I dont just waste my money.

    40Pin (0.5mm PITCH ,special)

    That's the connector. Sounds a little suspect but you could compare to others they have.

    I've had the same problem, man. Been trying to solve it for a week. Just reset the BIOS to its optimal defaults and you're good. C states are enabled by default on all laptops even though the choice for that option may not be listed in BIOS.

    C states being locked is causing the CPU to lock itself at 40x max multiplier and wastes a ton of battery as well.

    PS. The C State disable/enable option doesn't become available upon resetting the BIOS to default, it just gets enabled.



    BIOS (and all the other drivers) can be found here https://www.clevo.com.tw/clevo_down.asp?lang=en for all the Clevo laptops.



    There is no way this laptop could run 4k 120 fps on any game post 2009. If I was you, I'd go for 1440p 120hz monitor/TV. I've got a 65" 120hz Samsung Q70R and I'm running post 2015 games on 1080p ultra and I get 120 fps most of the time. Some less demanding ones I run on 1440p 120hz, but I rarely even get close to the 120 fps mark.

    Even 70 fps would look better, the desktop too.

    Had to reinstall Windows since it kept refusing to boot unfortunately so I had to redownload over 1TB of games :|
    The good news is that I think it fixed my C-states and my battery life is much better now:

    Yeah the processor being on full juice even idle would kill your battery life.
