I have tried that with no use.The problem is not in the settings of bios but in the bios firmware itself. And it is not possible to downgrade to the previous version.

Many thanks,i will use it until the next update.

I also used Intel tool to under volt cpu. And it helps also to reduce fan speed and sound.

I realy fear that the next update would not fix this issue.
