    Question Disable Ryzen 3600X PBO for Undervolting?

    Hi, First, a question I had: The difference between Precision Boost (PB) and Precision Boost Overdrive (PBO) is when former boosts CPU clock to it's maximum based on die's temperature while the latter boosts CPUs maximum clock even further by "overdriving" it but now it's based on CPU voltage...
  2. Question I5-9300H overheating (Undervolting does not help)

    Greetings! When I was gaming yesterday (GTA 5 + Spotify apps were open), I wanted to adjust the screen angle, and at that moment I felt the laptop was quite warm.

    [SOLVED] Should I undervolt my RX 570 for better Thermal/Fan noise peformance?

    Hi, So I have a Gigabyte RX 570 4GB, and often when playing the Witcher 3 it will reach 85-89*c @100% utilisation and thermal throttle from 1244 mhz Core (which is stock) to around 1150 or below, and it is noticeable in the framerate as it will dip below 60fps. It is also quite noisy. I bought...

    Question My laptop is behaving in a very weird manner after I undervolted the CPU

    So I recently bought the 2019 G7 model with RTX 2060. Despite putting in more powerful hardware than the 2018 model, those geniuses at Dell made the chassis smaller; so the heat output is massive. So, I decided to undervolted my CPU to reduce temps, which worked wonders. I used the Intel Extreme...
