Hi, I was having the feeling that TT wasnt working so I started to dig a bit. And I found out a thread mentioning that after a current BIOS update the option is locked. I tried Intel XTU also and the program doesnt loading. Are all these correct? Do I have to downgrade my bios to have temps lowered by under voltaging? Is there hope that a future patch of TT will be able to overide the lockdown?
My laptop is an Alienware M15 r2 / i7 9750H
