    Good catch. I didn't recognize the question that was asked.

    @Mr. Fox Thank you very much for the reply. There is a post from you in 2015 saying the AW18 needs a tweak to the tCKmin value to. Does that still apply to the AW18 (I'm have A13 bios).

    "It will run 2133, but you need to use Thaiphoon Burner and tweak the tCKmin value to bump the RAM clocks up to 1068.38MHz and then it will run at 2133. User mw86 at Tech|Inferno was able to manage 2400MHz from his Kingston Impact memory using this technique. By default, 1866 is the max."

    Hi bro. I don't know about the BIOS or what the RAM does now. I got rid of the AW18 in 2015. I was able to run 2400 using the same tweak that mw86 did. That also worked in the AW18 and Clevo P570WM. Sorry I cannot be more helpful, but I've forgotten a lot. 2015 was a long time ago and something could be different with A13.

    Much appreciate it. We die-hards miss you. I will check mw86's posts.

    Congrats on your new gear. It's very impressive and much less hassle to manage, I'm sure!
