I just built I new PC and wanted to make sure everything is running properly so I benchmarked it using userbenchmark and every time I run the benchmark, it says that my CPU has throttled to around 95%. I made sure that my power setting are set to 100% and nothing is running in the background whenever I run the benchmark. I attached the links below that show the benchmark and the temps during that benchmark.

Benchmark:

HW Monitor During Benchmark:

Part List:

CPU: i7-12700KF
CPU Cooler: NZXT X73
Motherboard: MSI Tomahawk Z690 DDR5
RAM: 32 GB DDR5
GPU: RTX 3080
PSU: Corsair 850RM

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. :)

All ub has done is ensured you keep going back to it. Nothing is throttling and temps are good.

All you need to determine is temps and if it don't reach 90c and speeds don't decrease then you're good. Continue without ub.

I think the actual reason for the 'cpu throttled by Windows' is because UBM 'doesn't know what the heck E-cores are' and wasn't/hasn't been updated to do so. Windows knows the difference.
It sees the E-cores as vastly lower clocks than the P-cores and flips out. Disabling the E-cores should stop the message from appearing.

Nothing is throttling as posted above.
