    Anyone updated their bios and ec firmware?
    Currently still on stock firmware using the 2080 version. Thinking of updating them.

    How does it run? Is it stable or does it have any impact on games?

    If you have the 8SG and still on the stock bios, you will want to upgrade your bios and firmware. Just follow the instructions completely including clearing the EC using the button on the MB accessed via the bottom of your laptop using a paper clip. You will see a performance boost from the stock bios since the stock bios was not allowing the CPU to stay in boost as long as later bios revisions. I have both the latest bios and firmware and it runs stable and fine as just as fast as some of the earlier bios revisions if not slightly more performance.

    Please note; I have not done any other upgrades including faster ram, repasted, etc. The only thing I use is throttlestop to undervolt the CPU/cache. So if you have added faster ram or anything, I can not be sure how the new bios and firmware will affect that.

    A very detailed explanations, thank you

    I have the 9SG version, so is it best to update my firmware?
    I've done the repasting using TG Kryonout, getting good temps while playing Witcher 3, RDR2 and other games that are quite heavy (all maxed out) never gotten the GPU past 75°C and CPU maxed out at 85°C with this notebook and I'm happy with it.

    But for the dragon center latest update have disabled my notebook's "Battery Master Control" Settings where you could set the battery charge level to 60% maxed. That's why I'm thinking of updating my bios and ec firmware (but scared that it will have a negative impact on my gaming experience).

    I had my battery "stuck" at 80% when I wanted to lower and raise it when needed but couldn't because the dragon center battery options no longer worked. I believe this is the thing I found that worked for me, let me know if it doesn't work for you and I can double check if this was the exact service I enabled as I am not at my MSI machine now and can't double check it:

    The issue was that the Micro Star SCM service was disabled, which prevented the battery calibration, and presumably other Dragon features, from working. To fix this issue, simply go to your Microsoft services (type in services in search bar), then set Micro Star SCM to manual, then click apply to keep the change. Remember to start the service or else it will not work.

    It appears that windows update periodically disable MSI services, so this issue may pop up from time to time. The solution should be the same.

    Did you use any kind of utility to cap the battery charge level at 80%?

    Just the dragon center app, which is working again after enabling that service. I lowered it to the lowest setting now since I rarely use it on battery.

    Can we use dragon center and thermal stop at the same time. I thought there was a problem if you use them together.
