Hi,

I'm looking to underclock a i7 8750h to reduce the temp. I use only for office and some vps, so I test with 2.2ghz and works well. But I don't known how many voltage should be set for this, because. I have read that underclock is risky due to the fact that I would be using less voltage than the motherboard is prepared.



any suggestion?

thanks and sorry by my bad english.
 
Hi
I have a asus gaming laptop that has the i7-8750h.
If you underclock it performance is less and the voltages stay unless you change it also.
I just undervolted mine with intel xtu.
The temp came down but not performance.
It is undervolted by -0.150 and runs great with less temp.

I'd suggest replacing the included thermal compound with a quality substitute like Arctic MX-4 or Arctic Silver 5 instead of undervolting it. Turning off Intel Turbo Boost may help.
