    ROG strix GL12cx OC and chassis fan management


    I'm new to the PC world but I've spent the last few weeks researching and I just cannot find any information on my issues.

    I currently have a pre-build ROG strix GL12-cx with some additional components:
    - 9th gen i7 9700k
    - RTX 2080 8gb
    - Vengeance rgb Pro running @ 2933MHz
    - 2 Corsair LL120 fans (1 on cpu radiator and 1 on front of case)
    - mobo is a custom one only available for this pre-build, I believe it uses a Z-390 chipset though

    I have updated BIOS, software and firmware for the cpu, OS, and gpu.

    I am trying to use the Armoury Crate setting "Turbo" but every time the system boots I get a notification " Armoury Crate You can't modify CPU's frequency because BIOS setting "Overclocking Lock" has been enabled. I have gone into BIOS > Advanced > and there's no information for this "Overclocking Lock" setting anywhere.

    Additionally I have downloaded ASUS GPU TweakII hoping that would enable some tab in BIOS but I am only able to run the application and make any changes there. If I do select a pre-set profile in Tweak and run a stress test with MSI kombustor, it seems to work. I see a differentiation in a couple statistics like voltage, mem freq, and more.

    I'm still learning about overclocking so I don't want to create a custom profile but rather utilize one of the pre-set in the Armoury Crate while I do more research. But, I am unable to enable those pre-sets within Armoury Crate.

    I would also like to know if there is an application that I can manage the Chassis fan speed? I'd like to get more air flow and I found ASUS Xpert Fan 4 but the I'm not sure if it's compatible with my system.

    Sorry for long winded post and thank you for any help. Please let me know if you need any further specs or information.
