    Asus or any other manufacture can "fix" this issue. It is up to intel to do what they can to come up with the solution but tbh that may not happen until the next generation processors as the problem lies between the processor not getting enough power to complete computation tasks thus opening it to exploitation and data collection.
    Thing is , majority of the users just downgrade BIOS , so what's the point of "blocking" undervolt if in fact we can still undervolt by downgrading?

    Makes the life of everyone just a little harder , at least they should give us the option to enable or disable it.

    And as you said , I doubt Intel is going to do something , at least not anytime soon.

    Dear all,
    Thank you so much for your feedback.
    All of them have been reported and taken into consideration.

I should be able to disable overclocking and modify other settings that would extend the life of my laptop by lowering the overall heat generated.
    I am seeing similar temps on my G732LWS as well , even in games I wouldn't have called "overtaxing" , to the point I am being to wonder about this "liquid metal " TIM and if it's all it's cracked up to be , so any help will be useful .

    My G732LWS doesn't have the Overclocking Tab in the Bios that was/is reported to be there in the 310 Bios either , the Bios on an MSI laptop I had , allowed and advance Bios option which was much more useful , so I'm not sure why Asus can't do something similar?

    We are following this on our BIOS setting.
    Thank you.
    May I know where Intel has stated that undervolting is allowed only upto -80 mV in the BIOS? Currently Asus laptops allow only up to -80 mV through the BIOS, so kindly forward our request to the technical team, to remove the -80 mV limit, so that we can undervolt more than -80 mV, which will help reduce the temperatures a lot, improve performance and improve the fan noise. Hope to hear something positive from you in this regard. Thanks.

    Have you tried to reduce the boost clock and boost duration in intel extreme tuning utility?

    Exclamation

    Obviously Asus are still applying bad pastes or LM. Or simply the application method sucks. Mine was also constant thermal throttling (G731GW - 9750h/RTX2070) from new and after RMA with mobo replacement 2 weeks after purchase. Then I repasted it myself and using ThrottleStop for only lowering voltages and increasing TPL limits it never hits throttling of any type - neither thermal nor power throttling. The Limit reasons box remains always black, no matter tasting with CB20, playing high demanding games or working with resource hungry CAD/CAD. Asus must finally understand - it's the quality of the pastes/LM (TIM) that matters and its application method. It's a shame it's happening even with LM. Lesson not learned. It's not costing a fortune (even on large scale) but is the cheapest way to not get so many complaints and paying for hundreds of RMAs. If a dollar or two more per laptop is eating your profit, I'm speechless. You're making very good machines, the heatsink is capable of taking away all the heat (unlike many other pricey brands) and the thing that stumbles you is something so insignificant in price...
    For the ones able to downgrade to older BIOS - what are you still waiting for?! For the others- keep up the pressure. Other manufacturers like Dell and HP are providing options for undervolting, besides the Plundervolt fix.

    I haven't bought the laptop yet, due to the unavailability of stock in my region.

    Sorry guys, I've been offline for a while.

    My laptopt is a Scar III G531GV and the temperatures have gone from 82ºC to 95ºC in any game, even in not very demanding like the LOL.

    The only thing we can do is ask / require Asus to release the BIOS, as other manufacturers have done, in order to make a small Undervolt, since we know that our laptops accept it.
