If you want the Speed Shift Min and Max values to be sent to the CPU then you have to check the Speed Shift box in the TPL window. Other than that, your settings look OK.

I would bump Power Limit 4 and IccMax for the core and cache up to at least 100. If these settings are not causing any throttling then you can leave them as is. Run a log file and check the far right column for any throttling flags.

There is a forum available for ThrottleStop specific questions.

Wow Unclewebb? I have read most of your threads and messages before making my settings. It's a pleasure to meet you. Thank you very much for your reply. I will look into the forum you mentioned.

I set the IccMax values to 140 for Core and Cache. Then I set Power Limit 4 to 140. It never occurred to me to keep the log data because actually I didn't have many problems with the Limits screen and it worked as I wanted in games. It only glows red in one case. I can't make much sense of this. When exiting the game, EDP OTHER Red is lit continuously. about 10 seconds. Then it fixes. No EDP OTHER while in game. It only happens when exiting games. During this process, the processor frequency drops a lot and is fixed at 2.8 Ghz during EDP OTHER. I would be glad if you can find a solution for this as well. I'm very curious as to why. I have attached pictures of the latest situation.

By the way, I use Google Translate. My English is not very good. Sorry.

Not sure why this happens after exiting a game.

The only thing you can try is set both the core and cache IccMax to the maximum value, 255.75. That tells the CPU to ignore this setting.

Try setting "Power Limit 4" to 0 or try setting Power Limit 4 to the maximum value which is 1023.

Show me a screenshot of ThrottleStop with Limit Reasons open when this throttling is happening or show me a log file. Your settings look OK. At least you are not throttling in game.
