Hey, guys. The title says - almost - it all.

I just can't undervolt my CPU anymore. I tried to download it again, I also tried to use Intel's XTU program, but none of them worked so far.

Could anybody answer me why?

did you update your BIOS? If yes..... well there was an intel security patch, that disabled undervolting, and the only way to fix it is to downgrade your BIOS

Yes, I did upgrade my bios. I'm gonna try to do the downgrade... By the way, do you know why they've done this?
