Hi! I've got a problem where yellow "EDP other" keeps constantly appearing in RING limits section. How do i fix it? I'm using TS v9.4, my CPU is currently undervolted (-129.9 mV).
IDK about the performance issues, but im still sorta concerned about it. I've got an I7-6700HQ, i'm sending some screenshots of overall settings and FIVR here. Also, where do i turn showing limit reasons in the logs on?This is common. Is it reducing performance? Boxes in red indicate throttling is in progress. You only need to be concerned when you see a red box under the CORE column.
Post some screenshots so I can see what CPU you have and so I can see your settings. Turn on the log file option so you have a record of your CPU performance.
This happens automatically with the version of ThrottleStop that you are using.where do I turn showing limit reasons in the logs on?
I think 2-3 months ago, it should be clear and running good. I think there might be a problem with the radiator attachment units causing it to not fully touch the cpu cuz my laptop is hella old and some screw mounts got loose. I'll try to tinker with the settings as you've adviced and i will tell you a bit later if there is any difference. Thanks.When was the last time you opened up your laptop to clean it out? Have you ever replaced the thermal paste?
The cooling is not good at all. What thermal paste did you use? Here is what some thermal pastes do when used direct die on a laptop CPU.it should be clear and running good
Any stripped screws need to be fixed. Heatsinks cannot do their job if the mounting pressure is poor or non existent because of a stripped screw.some screw mounts got loose
pic addedUPD on the situation. My suspictions were true - some of the GPU heatsink screw mounts got off from the motherboard. IDK how and when it happened, but here we have it. Any ideas how to attach them back in? Also how can that cause CPU throttling cuz all the screws on the CPU heatsink are fine.

Any ideas how to attach them back in? Also idk how can that cause CPU throttling, all the screws on the CPU heatsink are fine and TS shows that gpu is always at 40-50° c
I have decided to glue it together using polyurethane-based glue (chose that because its sturdy, doesnt conduct electricity so there are less chances to get a short circuit and it can hold temperatures well without losing condition - manufactorer states a -40° C to +110° C range which fits well for me.) I'm currently drying it for 24 hours for the best grip. I will buy some new adhesive pads because the one i bought has ended, reassemble the pc and do some tests to see whether the problem is gone, if the pc would start without issues, of course.
