    [SOLVED] Power Limit Throttling on Intel i5-8250u ?

    Hi, I tried undervolting my laptop for the first time. Its an HP Envy 13 with an i5-8250U processor. I used throttlestop to undervolt CPU Cache, Core, and Intel GPU to -100mV offset voltage. I didn't go beyond -100mV since I got a blue screen when I changed it to -110mV. However, I wasn't...

    Question Throttlestop PL2 Limit on Core and Ring

    I recently installed ThrottleStop and it shows that I have a PL2 Limit on the Core and Ring sections, and I noticed that the cpu is stuck at the base 3.4ghz under heavy load. I don't think it's a temperature problem because when I'm playing it never reaches 60/65C I have a Lenovo ideacentre...

    [SOLVED] Throttlestop - Undervolting iGPU

    Hi all, I have an integrated graphics card that can be undervolted with Throttlestop. I currently have it at -40mv to save a little bit of power, I don't use it for games so it is only used for display. I don't want to undervolt it further in case it may cause rare BSOD. However, I've never...

    [SOLVED] My CPU is at max clock speed when idle, but goes below base clock speed when under a heavy load.

    My issue is that when my PC is under a heavy load, the clock speeds actually go below my base clock speed, and when I'm at idle it stays around it's maximum but fluctuates quite a bit. My initial thoughts are that this is because of thermal throttling, but my temperatures are the same as they...

    [SOLVED] Does undervolting really increase performance??

    I have a gaming laptop (acer aspire 7 with i5 9300h + gtx 1650) and I undervolted it around -140 mV...and I ran cinebench r15 (without undervolt temp - 88°c, multicore score - 815)(With undervolt temp - 71°c to 79°c, multicore score - 709) why this performance hit with undervolt????? N.B. - I...
  7. Question i7-8750h C0% Abnormally High

    I tried undervolting my CPU using throttlestop but I noticed that the C0% level is usually hovering over 10 which is very high, and there are no tasks taking up that much power besides system idle according to my task manager. On top of that, my clock speed is always much higher than the base...

    [SOLVED] Cannot undervolt i7-9750h after BIOS update [Dell G7 7590] [1.11.1->1.12.0]

    Before updating my bios to 1.12.0 from 1.11.1 I could change the voltage offset for both CPU and Cache , which was -0.125 Volts for both using Intel XTU and later ThrottleStop(8.71). But surprisingly after Update CPU seems to just ignore the offset and the settings in XTU are greyed out. I tried...
