    Throttlestop is reporting wrong bus speed on Ice Lake, 65MHz instead of 100. Your CPU is running at 3.5 GHz when fully loaded.

    All options set to USER are not visible again. The only change I made was to clone the SSD to another one and replace it.The IMON changes I made are still persistent, but I can't access them anymore. I tried flashing back - no change, dumping current Bios has USER properly set everywhere. I have no idea what is going on, this is on Blade Stealth.

    EDIT: I don't know how, but apparently the variable 0x3DC somehow was set to 0x0. I've changed all the Suppress If: with it to 0xff00 and I'm good, got it all back.

    That's great info to have. I also cannot access my advanced features due to cloning the boot drive, and have to remove it each time to access. I'm going to have a look at 0x3dc and see if that fixes it for me too.

    EDIT: Unfortunately, my 0x3DC doesn't show anything relevant, what was the form which this corresponded for you? What does the rest of the section look like? Thanks!

    Pretty much all primary forms inside “Advanced” were suppressed with it. I just replaced them all in bulk (it was used 127 times) and this made options visible that still had “Default” as user access. But I had 0x3DC explicitly defined as variable suppressing all those options in original bios dump.

    Yeah, I finally decided screw it, I'll just go through and turn every check to FF00, so I made all "Suppress if:" and "Grayout if:" to FF00, and now I've got a completely open BIOS and it works with my cloned NVME which it didn't like before.

    So did you do like a regexp containing all possible names of the variables or did you change some select few?

    I couldn't find an easy way to find and replace using wildcards and only replace one portion. So I used 010 Editor which will search and highlight all locations matching the search terms. I did a wildcard search for what I wanted (0A 87 ? ? ? ? 00 00, 0A 87 ? ? ? ? 01 00, 0A 87 ? ? ? ? 02 00, 0A 87 ? ? ? ? 04 00, 19 82 ? ? ? ? 00 00, 19 82 ? ? ? ? 01 00, 19 82 ? ? ? ? 02 00, and 19 82 ? ? ? ? 04 00). Then went through and change all of the checks to FF 00. In all, it was a few hundred locations to change. Efficient, no. Quick, no. Annoying, yes. Functional, yes.

    Glad to hear someone else is running this on their RBS late 2019. Would love to trade some numbers and temperatures. Trying to find a happy medium. I can get through a Cinebench r20 at 3.5ghz all core, but any stress tests (especially when adding the GPU into the mix) temps get way too high. Re-pasted and stress tests still pushing it too high.

    Followed all steps in the first post, applied a modest -50mv undervolt to core/cache, and undervolted GTX 1650. I limited all core boost to 3.0ghz and tried stress tests but temps still get a little out of control.
