I have a i7-9700k and an Aorus Z390 Ultra with the latest bios update. I have all the bios settings set to default, and when I try to run intel Performance Maximizer it states bios is not compatible. Any workarounds would be appreciated. Thank you.
That is ok. I found it.
Are you running Windows 10 version 1809 or 1903?
From the release notes:

•Refer to any additional recommendations/limitations in the Known Issues(section 4 table 4
I am running Windows 10 version 1903. My bios by default is in UEFI mode and I left the rest default because that was the recommendation from forums that I have been reading. I could not find the rest of the bios options recommendations listed in my bios settings. I know basic computing, but I have never overclocked so that is why I am uncomfortable in the bios and why the tool sounds interesting to me.
