    This isn't that new to be honest I discovered it on my Z490 a couple weeks ago when I tried updating my BIOS. Nonetheless I have had negative results with this feature because I could only put it on "water cooler"(while having a Noctua air cooled tower) if you wanted to increase to a certain CPU voltage AND even had higher temps than my previous BIOS with the exact same values.

    Maybe a stupid question but if you are out of those limit (below or upper) what happen?
    exemple: if you have a passive radiator with 300w hd or with a negative temp WC, can you still easy OC your CPU?
    at least do you still have the hand on the manual setup?

    Is this a jab at the bad Intel stock coolers?

    AMD has programmable TDP does Intel have the same function?

    Having two lightning models is dumb and a plain old moneygrab is you ask me, it's been a pet peeve of mine for a while, i'm sure they'll step-up their game though as reviewers /hardcore tech folks are getting real clever nowadays.

    Its just a new menu to set options that already existed for years. If you find that horrible... A bit of extra UI that you don't have to use hurts noone.

    If they want to do something actually useful, they could start by fixing their buggy mess of a program 'Dragon Center'. I already have a custom cpu fan curve option in the bios, this is not needed at all.

    Right but it rather silly to put another menu on a menu.
