Received my new X380 with i5-8350U I didn't have problems with heavy load but still find the fan noisy and cpu temp too high.
Tried to install Intel XTU but told me I'm trying to install it on an unsupported platform. It's possible? Anyone have tried to use it on the X380?
For me, just running ThrottleStop - no settings change, I don't even need to keep it running in the background - gets the CPU to actually throttle down from max (which is why the temps are always high and fan is always on).

...with "Extreme CPU performance" setting
Yep, in BIOS > Config > Power > Adaptative Thermal Performance > Extreme CPU performance
Item Specific Help:
Highest CPU performance. When enable this item, Scheme for AC and Scheme for battery will be disabled. The item will affect Fan sound, temperature and battery life.

I've tested the 1.20 Bios with the extreme CPU performance switch enabled, I would say the device performs the same as with Bios 1.18_T1. So that works out fine. I do not notify any serious impacts on battery life, of course the Fan spins up a little mit more often, since it needs to get rid of more heat. But that is like it is, due to the physical limitations.
I would like to deploy this Bios Version including the extreme CPU performace switch enabled in my environment. Deploying the Bios is no problem, I've already created a SCCM Job for this. However, I can't find the possibility to set the extreme CPU performance somehow, exept directly in the Bios. I know I can do some Bios settings over WMI, but I can't find this switch in the WMI library.

I'm asking about the possibility to include this setting in WMI, in a future BIOS version...
