Hi there, I'm having an issue with my cpu where it never goes below turbo boost frequency (3.1 Ghz) in idle and I'm not sure what's causing it. I've updated the bios, used throttlestop to enable speedshift @64 and so far I haven't been successful. Only thing that worked was setting the non turbo ratio to 0 in throttlestop, but then it's stuck at base clock and it never goes below 2.5 Ghz either (in idle).

My laptop: Legion y520 15IKBM with an I5 7300hq.
Here's a screenshot of my throttlestop settings (FIVR is at default settings)

I'm not sure if it's related but i always experience stuttering in games where I have stable, higher than 60fps performance (CSGO, Forza horizon 4, metro exodus).
I'd be grateful for some opinions, thank you!

or go on advance power settings and going to the processor power management and changing the settings on those taps
Minimum and maximum values while plugged in are set to 5% and 100% respectively. I don't want to go below 100% as this will impact on my gaming performance.
