    ROG G703GI 8750h Throttlestop undervolt offsets wont apply

    It looks like Asus has started to lock voltage adjustment in some of their recent laptops. This is done by the bios so without a modified bios, there is no way around this limitation. My only suggestion is next time, shop elsewhere. The Overpowered laptops available at WalMart allow full...

    ThrottleStop (Error creating service: The specified service already exists)

    Are you using Windows Defender? If Windows 10 -1809 or Windows Defender does not like the RwDrv.sys file / driver, you will not be able to use the Disable and Lock Turbo Power Limits feature. I did not write that driver so I have no way to fix the part of ThrottleStop that depends on that...

    Throttle Stop Problem WinRing0.dll

    That is an Insider Preview Build. Microsoft releases these things and then sits back and sees how many people complain. If no one complains, WinRing0 support will be gone. If lots of people complain, maybe they will allow software that depends on the WinRing0 library to continue. Thanks for...

    Throttle Stop Problem WinRing0.dll

    Then I guess it is game over. You will have to switch to Intel XTU if it supports your CPU. I have heard that XTU support for the ULV processors has recently ended. :( What is your exact Windows 10 Build and Version number so others will know what to avoid if they need ThrottleStop?

    Throttle Stop Problem WinRing0.dll

    Have you tried starting OpenHardwareMonitor first before starting ThrottleStop? If Windows 10 is preventing the WinRing0 driver from loading, there is nothing that can be done about that. This driver has not been updated in a decade. ThrottleStop and any programs that depend on this driver...

    Throttle-Stop's "Turn On" button ?

    In the early days of development, some users were scared to give ThrottleStop a try so it was a way to get the timid to try ThrottleStop. The Turn On button only controls 3 things. Clock Modulation, Chipset Clock Modulation and Set Multiplier. On many recent CPUs, you do not need to use any...

    Motherboard showing different cpu temp than cpu monitoring software

    I would check it with CPU-Z. You can also use the built in benchmark to put a load on your CPU.

    Motherboard showing different cpu temp than cpu monitoring software

    How much voltage is your CPU set to? Auto overclocking tools tend to use too much voltage.

    Motherboard showing different cpu temp than cpu monitoring software

    The CPU is usually in the C0 state and is not using any of the low power C States when you are sitting in the bios. When you boot up into Windows, the CPU will have access to at least the low power C1 state. This will significantly drop power consumption and core temperatures when idle...

    Throttlestop overclocking Desktop PCs

    The W3680 is definitely unlocked, multiplier and TDP / TDC. This allows you to run full speed while fully loaded without any throttling. https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/throttlestop-overclocking-desktop-pcs.235975/post-3799652 I paid about $80 U.S. this time last year and now they...

    Low CPU speed when playing games

    There is a single register in the CPU that contains the two turbo boost, long and short, settings and this same register also contains the turbo time limit value. There is a single lock bit and for any Intel CPU that I have tested, when the lock is set, all of these values are locked and cannot...

    Low CPU speed when playing games

    It is possible that a bios or Windows update has locked the power limit register at 15 Watts. Did you accidentally click on the Lock option in ThrottleStop? I would need to see some data from your computer before this problem was first detected. If you are not sure what might have happened...

    Low CPU speed when playing games

    In the Turbo Boost Power Limits section, the Lock box is checked. That means your turbo power limits are locked and cannot be changed. Your CPU is throttling because this power limit is set to 15 Watts. Many laptops lock the power limit register so software like ThrottleStop or Intel XTU...

    Low CPU speed when playing games

    The Core i5-5200U is a 15 Watt CPU. https://ark.intel.com/products/85212/Intel-Core-i5-5200U-Processor-3M-Cache-up-to-2-70-GHz- Have a look at the ThrottleStop screenshot you posted. Your core temps appear to be OK. Lots of temperature headroom while the CPU is loaded. ThrottleStop is...

    Throttlestop stops every hour or so without any messages.

    The only other time I have heard of a problem like this was because of how the Task Scheduler was setup. On all of my computers, ThrottleStop runs for days and weeks at a time without ever shutting down. When you open up the Task Manager, can you see ThrottleStop.exe still running or is it...
