    Question Acer Nitro 7 CPU Throttling Issue when loading CPU

    I own a Acer Nitro 7 AN715-51 model gaming laptop (Intel i5-9300H). Recently I noticed that while running games or any other benchmarks my cpu clock speed drops from the usual 3.9 Ghz to 2.0 GHz or even lower and stays there. As soon as the application or game is closed or minimized the clock...

    Question Lenovo laptop underperforming

    Hello, my 6 month old laptop started underperforming recently. Most likely its bc of thermal throttling but i'm not sure. I've done a furmark bench just when i bought it. The performance was stable and around 70 fps. Now my gpu after it heats up to around 76 celsius and then dramaticaly drops...

    Question Brand new PC CPU Current/EDP Throttling - Gigabyte Z490M - i7-10700k

    Hi everyone, I have just bought a new rig and trying to push the limits a little bit further and try to learn how overclocking works generally. I used to use easy apps in the old times to " guarenteed OC " for my former PC. Since i do not have any experience, i'm scared of playing around with...

    Question Mobo is throttling my i7 2600k from 3.4ghz to 1.6ghz after hitting 70c

    MB: Intel DH67BL CPU: i7 2600k So a little bit of context, my stock cooler reached 90c at full load, but still continued to run at 3.4ghz. I wanted to reduce temperatures, so I bought a Cooler Master Hyper T20. My 100% load now is only as hot at 75c, but for some reason now, my MOBO decided to...

    Question Laptop GPU clock oscillating between idle and load speeds when gaming

    My GPU seems to have a load clock frequency of ~1500 MHz, but when I run games, I see the number plummet to around 400 MHz, and sometimes it drops to below 200 MHz. Naturally this results in some terrible FPS and general unplayablilty in my games on my laptop. Before anyone offers any advice, I...

    Question can I make my CPU run at regular speeds while having max processor state capped?

    When I have my max processor state capped, the speeds my system is able to run are capped too. 95% cap only lets me run at 2.09GHz, 99% cap only lets me run at 2.19GHz while my CPU is capable of turbo boosting to 4GHz. When I uncap it, I have power limit throttling issues and a lot of CPU...

    Question ThreadRipper 3960 runs too hot (65C-85C) when idle

    Dear All, I bought my new ThreadRipper 3960X rig a few days ago and I realised that, despite having a decently sized AIO water cooler (Corsair H150i with a 360mm radiator), the CPU runs a little too hot for what it does...or, rather, doesn't do. My idle temperature anything between is 65C to...

    Question CPU TEMP QUESTION

    Hello! I started noticing some stuttering in a new game I was playing so figured it might just be the game that was causing the stutters, but soon realised all my games were pretty much doing it apart from the more demanding of games, so I looked into my temps and my CPU is fairly high I...

    So I've been experimenting with a multiplier overclock on my CPU, the idea was to squeeze some extra performance out for VR until next gen hits and an upgrade is necessary. I managed to disable all the bios stuff that was blocking me (like powernow etc), enabled custom p states and HPC, put it...

    Question Fresh off of a Factory Restart: GPU Clock Speed dropping, Lowering FPS and performance

    Just did a factory reset on my laptop, and all of a sudden I started getting massive frame drops in all my games after ~30 seconds of play on average. I ran multiple diagnostics and have come to the conclusion that my GPU is throttling at very low temperatures: around about in the 64-65 C range...
