Hello everyone. I'd like to know if anybody has reduced the power requirements, notably the TDP of the i9 9900KS by disabling the iGPU in the BIOS.

I will be using my existing RX-580 for the GPU and using an existing iMac Pro 1 system definition. It is working well in my current Z370 build with all that FCPX/Compressor handoff stuff working in Mojave 10.14.6.

Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. I whiffed on the i9 9900KF, so a binned 4.9 GHz i9 9900KS is on its way.
