    So i installed fresh SSD nvme on the secondary slot and made it my primary bootable drive. however it is not visible in the bios? it still boots to it since i reformatted the original ssd.

    I am not sure how to make it visible in the bios since its only selection is the old SSD

    Any advice would be great. Thanks

    --Solved. Just fixed the EFI file of the new SSD. Now working

    Hey, I'm thermal throttling at 90C when running CS:GO, this isn't a very demanding game and the CPU utilisation is only at around 15%. Is this normal/is there anything I can do about this? Thanks

    Just install throttlestop and cap your cpu clock at 2.4 ghz. And undervolting at around 150mv.

    I have successfully unlocked all BIOS menus for the Aero 15X v8 BIOS (FB0A). Please check out the following link.

    I can now undervolt my CPU to -150mv in the OverClocking Performance Menu :)

    Holy crap! Looks like they finally added advanced BIOS options and settings. Anything in there look like it allows other RAM sticks, not just the 3 they have as "supported".

    And anything else stand out as useful?

    Actually it's a BIOS mod so you have to dump and patch it yourself. Under Chipset->System Agent (SA) Configuration->Memory Configuration there are tonnes of RAM related settings. No idea if that will allow you to use other types of RAM.

    There are lots of settings that are useful to me since I dual boot macOS and Windows.

    Any chance you could share the modified BIOS ROM so we can flash it?

    I wish it was that easy but you will have to unlock it then dump, patch and flash it yourself. I have provided a link with instructions here.

    I always find undervolting the cpu and gpu really helps the most with heat.
