    PEG is only available in the unlocked BIOS, instructions to flash are somewhere in the forum

    PEG is available to ALL rangers regardless of bios.

    The available methods to get to peg changes with an unlocked bios is all.

    PEG is when its dGPU only, so yes. It should auto enable with the 120HZ screen afaik

    Upgrade completed, now I have one final question:
    - the heatsink I bought (5 pipes the one some use here) came with some thermal paste already on it can I use that or should I apply my own? (temps look good right now)

    If Temps are good then nothing to worry about. Some people have preference and there's nothing wrong with that either.

    I have tried different games (the witcher, dmc5, sea of thieves) and they don't go above 70C so it's fine, thanks both of you for bearing with me and helping me get all of this working it feels like having a new pc
