    So u/XMG_gg replied, saying that they have no information about this, and their previous statements are still accurate. XMG will try to get into contact with Origin PC to see what they are doing with it.

    From a TDP standpoint the chips are equal so I would hope something would be done.

    I wonder what your connections at Sager have to say regarding Ryzen 5000 in the NP7958F1?

    Hmmm... exciting it is! But... have there any official release of stable BIOS from Clevo yet?

    So I've been encountering the same keyboard issue as several other people had been a while back. It also seems to affect the fan control, power button, and Control Center. Both times I've had it happen so far have been during highly GPU intensive games. The custom fan control software I installed, from Obsidian PC, reports that a "critical service has stopped responding" and presents an option to restart it, but that does nothing. This has only occurred after I upgraded my BIOS to the latest XMG BIOS and EC. I wonder if it's some sort of problem with this EC, as I didn't experience it before the update. Any ideas, or links to a different BIOS version I can load to see if that helps?

    So the hesitation is due to the lack of 65W chips with only the 5600x and if a 65W mode would be supported and getting that in there. Probably AMD not being very communicative.

    So a little bit of updates on the Zen 3 possibility and the keyboard/fan issues: first of all, Origin PC has taken down the Zen 3 configuration options. I wonder what would happen if you had ordered it in the time it was still available? And second, with the keyboard/fan issues, it seems not to happen unless the CPU is being overclocked or undervolted, at least from my limited testing. I don't know if it never happens, but it at least hasn't happened since I've stopped undervolting. Also, this is done on a 3950x, so it might be different for other configurations.
