My laptop use ryzen 5 3500h cpu, and i want to limit the cpu to reduce temp because its reach 80-88c and sometimes 90c when gaming.
I look at the power options you able to limit the cpu state maximum and minimum.
Let's say i want to limit my cpu usage to 80% only. What percentage should i put in maximum and minimum state ?

Keep minimum to those 5% and set maximum to whatever gives you satisfactory performance without heating too much.
Do you know you can have multiple Power saving plans and you can instantly switch to any of them ?

just closely monitor what service is using how much of your computer's resources and then take actions, manage that. Task manager is your friend, my mate

Yes, that should work, just check if performance and temperatures are satisfactory. If youhave to change something, change only maximums.
The temperature lower drastically from 80c to 60c after i set to 80% because its only use 1,7ghz and also games run little bit stutter.
Is there a way to limit the ghz instead the cpu state, so i can limit it to 3ghz only because in full load my cpu reach 3,7ghz ?

Might be able to do it in BIOS if it supports the feature but CPU state also limits the frequency
