    Help undervolting i5 4200h Throttlestop

    For the 4th Gen 4200H, you might not be able to undervolt much more than what you are doing right now. If you decide to go beyond -110 mV, do lots of testing to make sure your undervolt is stable. Test the core and cache offset voltages individually. See how far you can go with each one...

    Help undervolting i5 4200h Throttlestop

    Under volting will help but you need more than just under volting to solve this problem. The design of your heatsink does not look good. When you are gaming and the Nvidia GPU is putting out heat, the combined heat causes both the CPU and GPU to run too hot. The heatsink and fan cannot keep...

    Help undervolting i5 4200h Throttlestop

    Your log file shows that your cooler is not OK. During this 1 minute, your CPU is constantly thermal throttling. Power consumption is only 13.5 Watts. The 4200H has a 47 Watt TDP rating. That means the heatsink should be able to handle 47 Watts of power consumption without the CPU...

    Help undervolting i5 4200h Throttlestop

    This Asus laptop has bad cooling. Your log file shows that when your CPU is running at 13 or 14 Watts of power consumption, your CPU is already overheating and reaching the thermal throttling temperature of 85°C. That is terrible. ThrottleStop cannot fix a broken or poorly designed heatsink...

    Help undervolting i5 4200h Throttlestop

    https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/75027/intel-core-i5-4200h-processor-3m-cache-up-to-3-40-ghz.html Intel set the thermal throttling temperature of the 4200H to 100°C. Asus is using a minus 15°C offset. That means your laptop will thermal throttle at 85°C instead of at the...

    Help undervolting i7 8750h Throttlestop

    Intel CPUs will automatically thermal throttle and slow down as much as necessary to protect the CPU from damage if any of the cores get too hot. No need to be too concerned as the CPU will look after itself. For maximum performance, it would definitely be a good idea to investigate further...

    Help undervolting i7 8750h Throttlestop

    This is typically a sign that your heatsink is not sitting square to the CPU cores. It might not have been tightened evenly when installed or else the thermal paste job is a mess.

    ThrottleStop not working

    Intel released a microcode update last December for many of their CPUs. After this update is installed, it will block under volting and it will block adjustment of the Turbo Ratio Limits. I have never seen a screenshot where the turbo values are all set to 0. Did you update your BIOS...

    ThrottleStop Setting method for this CPU pls !!!

    The Core i5-7300HQ is a laptop CPU. The multiplier is locked by Intel so there is no way that you can overclock it. You can use ThrottleStop to undervolt some laptop CPUs. To do that you need to go into the FIVR window and check the Unlock Adjustable Voltage option. Try setting the CPU core...

    Throttlestop PL 2 Yellow on Core

    I did not really think that setting the power limits to 256 was going to solve your problem but it was the only thing I could think of. Performance looks great overall as well as consistent so I would not lose too much sleep over this very minor glitch. If you are curious, run a TS log file...

    Throttlestop PL 2 Yellow on Core

    I do not think so. Some of the limit reason indicators within the CPU can be hyper sensitive. An 8750H that can run the full 39.00 multiplier during an entire Cinebench R20 test without any sort of throttling is excellent. Your log file confirms that the PL2 indicator is being triggered at...

    Throttlestop stops every hour or so without any messages.

    Everyone assumes that options that are greyed out in the Task Scheduler are not active but that is not true. The second option that is checked by default causes the problem that you are having.

    Throttlestop stops every hour or so without any messages.

    @tyfui - Are you using the Task Scheduler to start ThrottleStop? There are some options within the Task Scheduler that can cause the problems you are having. Follow the guide I wrote exactly. Do not gloss over the details highlighted in red...

    Laptop throttling at 55C

    Blowing the dust bunnies out of a laptop is always a good place to start. The log file shows lots of PL1 throttling even though power consumption is only at 4 Watts. I was wondering why this was happening but then I had a look at your settings in the TPL window. You have set the long and...

    Laptop throttling at 55C

    @rsslayer56 - Why not post some more screenshots so I can see how you have ThrottleStop set up? Have you enabled the FIVR - Disable and Lock Turbo Power Limits feature? That can help the performance of some low power U series CPUs. Download the RwDrv.zip file from Mega. Unzip that file, copy...

    i7-8550u better performance on battery

    I would suggest using the Windows High Performance power profile all of the time by using the powercfg /s SCHEME_MIN command. Now run ThrottleStop and check the Speed Shift EPP option on the main screen. Set EPP to 0 for maximum performance when plugged in. Set Speed Shift EPP to somewhere...

    ThrottleStop Constant "EDP Other" Issue

    EDP OTHER lighting up in red across all 3 domains usually refers to the PP0 Current Limit. Open the TPL window and try setting that sky high if it is not locked. 256 is a good number. Also try increasing all of the FIVR IccMax values sky high. I think they max out at 255.75. Many HP...

    Dell G5 5590 - Throttlestop undervolt not applying

    The latest Dell BIOS updates disable undervolting. Even going back to the previous BIOS will not get undervolting working. After going back, some user had success by going into the BIOS and selecting the reset option. Maybe that will work on your laptop. Sad times ahead for many laptop...

    CPU throttle 100% use ingame with 70°c

    How about more voltage and more speed? Instead of disabling turbo boost, you can go into the FIVR window and adjust the turbo ratio limits to whatever you like. Some games might like some turbo boost while other games are more GPU dependent so disabling turbo boost will barely be noticed...

    CPU throttle 100% use ingame with 70°c

    Errors during this test shows that your CPU is not getting enough voltage. -100 mV to -125 mV is a typical safe undervolt for the 8750H. It is a good idea to start at -80 mV and work your way towards -125 mV if testing shows you are stable. The Disable Turbo option on the main screen of...

    CPU throttle 100% use ingame with 70°c

    Have a look at the last ThrottleStop screenshot you posted. The FID column shows CPU multipliers all reporting at 40 where they should be. You seem to be making progress. Hopefully the log file shows the same. Edit- Try running a TS Bench 1024M 1 Thread test to make sure your undervolt is...

    CPU throttle 100% use ingame with 70°c

    The CPU clock speed is terrible. I had a look through the log file and it is clear that the CPU multiplier is being limited to 21. An 8750H should be able to use the 39 multiplier when gaming. The CPU is running at just over 50% of its rated speed. That is severe throttling and that is why...

    CPU throttle 100% use ingame with 70°c

    That does not indicate throttling. It just indicates that your CPU is being fully utilized. Some of the data reported in that on screen plug in is not 100% accurate. A log file will give a much better indication of what your CPU is really doing. The FIVR Disable and Lock Turbo Power Limits...

    CPU throttle 100% use ingame with 70°c

    How do you know you have throttle? Your CPU is mostly idle in the ThrottleStop screenshot you posted. Turn on the Log File option in ThrottleStop, go play a game for at least 15 minutes and then exit the game and exit ThrottleStop and then upload your log file somewhere so I can have a look at...

    The disabling of the Memory Mapped IO power limit register has been added to ThrottleStop. No need to mess around with RWEverything anymore. Just open up the FIVR window and check off the new option, Disable and Lock Turbo Power Limits. It works great.
