    Hey, glad you got it fixed. Yeah, freezing while in the BIOS is a big tip-off. No drivers, OS, etc. running; so it points to a CMOS/BIOS/hardware issue(s). Hope you didn't have to wait too long.

    Quick note on the freezing issue: For me, and others as well, it's related to Win10 ver. 2004 and MS Edge. I'm running Win10 ver. 1909 and freezing is completely gone.

    I still think 90+c is too high for sustained use. Too much heat is degrading for electronics. That said, the Ryzen 7 4800H is rated up to 105c! Yikes!

    I agree with your assessment. I did 3 fresh installs of Windows 2004 ver with same results (freezing and ridiculous boot times). So I downloaded the 1909 and all issues vanished. So yeah, 2004 is...

    Yeah, I have the same hope that MS will resolve ver 2004's issues--they likely will.

    TUF A17 FA706IU - RAM Timings

    I've upgraded RAM to 32GB DDR4-3200MHz CL18 1.2V. The original sticks ran at 3200MHz CL22, so these new sticks should be a bit faster. But the timings are the same as original, CL22.
