    Hello. My newly bought laptop was getting too hot, so I tried disabling the turbo to get it to run cooler which made the temps drop from 90-100 to 55-60 degrees celcius. However, by doing this, I get limited by my CPU when playing games and experience frame drops. So what I'm looking for is a...

    [SOLVED] 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...

    [SOLVED] Intel CPU Overclocking Vs Turbo Boost. Can You Modify the Turbo Boost for Higher Clock Speeds?

    Hello, I have a PC with an i7-6700K, which I can overclock to 4.7 GHz easily using my motherboard's game boost feature (MSI Z170A Gaming M7 ATX). Normally, the turbo boost speed for this CPU is 4.2 GHz, so the gain from an overclock is notorious. However, the overclock is constant, whereas the...
