This Frequency Core Multiplier is constantly going up and down.
How can I lock this Frequency Core Multiplier to: 50 ???

The 10750H does not support this feature. Look in the FIVR window. It shows you the maximum multiplier based on how many cores are active. When 1 core is active, the 10750H might briefly be able to use the 50 multiplier but it is not possible to use the 50 multiplier when all 6 cores are active.

Your screenshot shows that your CPU is Power limit throttling at 65W. Your CPU will run at whatever speed is necessary so it does not exceed 65W.

A mobile H series CPU is not a K series desktop CPU. You will always be limited by Intel Turbo Boost, the turbo power limits and the CPU temperature. You have to balance all of these variables to achieve maximum performance. A mobile HK CPU might have been a better choice but they are still going to be severely limited in most laptops by the cooling system.

Sounds good. Thanks for the *65W Power Limit* tip. The cooling is excellent on the "MSI GS66 10SE-044US ( 144Hz \ i7-10750H \ RTX 2060 ( BestBuy Sale: $1099)"
So, I'm going to try and bump up the power to: 75W.

You were *right* about my last laptop. The CPU, BIOS, Memory or something, was crap. So, I took it back. This one undervolts to:
Offset Voltage: -145 mV at IccMax 200 A

Any idea how high I can take the *** IccMax *** before it burns up my laptop??? In Electronics School, we were always taught volts good, amps bad. So, I'm bringing it back down to stock:
*** IccMax 165 A *** for now.

I would set all of the IccMax sliders to their maximum, 255.75. I have never heard of a mobile Intel CPU blowing up because of this setting.

Watch Limit Reasons. At 65W or 75W, it is impossible for a 10750H to draw 200 amps. No need to worry about the IccMax setting. Set it sky high to avoid any throttling.

Many enthusiasts are happy with their MSI laptops. They are not as locked down compared to most of their competition. Do a Google search for the key combination used to access the hidden BIOS options.

AWESOME! I knew you would know the * right * answer.

Thanks a heap!

Not sure if you need this info but someone might.

Here is a video that explains the key combination to get into the MSI advanced BIOS.
Go to the 00:30 second mark for more info.

Yeah, I already knew that, but your right some else might be able to use this info:

Press the Del key when the MSI Shield comes up to get into the MSI Bios

Once inside the MSI Bios:

While holding down Right-Shift
While holding down Right-Ctrl
While holding down Left-Alt

Press F2


( Intel i7-10750 ) After setting IccMax to 255.75
I was able to achieve a stable undervolt of: 140.6 mV
I was also able to get: 151 mV, but it wasn't stable.

Are you setting the core and cache offset voltages equally? You do not have to do this. Most users with the 8750H and 9750H got their best results by setting the cache offset to -125 mV or -130 mV. A little less cache offset allowed them to undervolt the core much further. Use Cinebench R20 to test this. Software that uses the AVX instructions will show the biggest improvement.


Watch for better performance or better temps when using different voltages.

The 10750H supports Thermal Velocity Boost. This allows the CPU to run faster as long as it is under 70°C. If you clear the TVB option in the FIVR window, this might allow the CPU to continue using TVB boost even when it is over 70°C.

These 2020 MSI GS66 "Advanced BIOS" mods, *REALLY* worked for my i7-10750H. The author said they will work on any 2020, MSI GS66, Intel CPU, model.

This trick's the system into believing its running at a lower wattage, so it won't throttle. You can draw 100W of power and the CPU will only report about 35W.
VERIFIED AND TESTED (on my i7-10750H).

2020 MSI GS66 "Advanced BIOS" mods results:

The CinebenchR23 Score was !! 8807 pts !! The Intel i7-10750H (CPU Multi Core) out performed the: 12C/24T @ 2.7 GHz, Intel Xeon CPU E5-2697 v2

I used the above "Advanced BIOS Mods". (Highest performance and !! TEMPERATURES (97-99C) !!

!! *NO* Undervolt used !! (Highest performance and !! TEMPERATURES (97-99C) !!

!! To get this high, you *must* change the PROCHOT trigger point in (ThrottleStop (FIVR) or [Uncheck] BD PROCHOT !!

Set Speed Shift - EPP 0 SST (to zero)

All Cores Active 43 (You can set this to 50, but this is the highest a *all cores on*, "Multiplier-Locked" CPU can actual *use*)

( ThrottleStop v9.3 > ) [ Unchecked ] V-Max Stress (Not sure, but it didn't hurt any)
( ThrottleStop v9.3 > ) [ Unchecked ] Thermal Velocity Boost (TESTED AND VERIFIED)

*Performance will drop*, but this runs much cooler with a CPU Core+Cache -130 mV Undervolt.

==================================================================

I have also managed to undervolt to:

CPU Core: -1000.0 vM !! MAXED !! (A small decrease in performance, but a 6C-9C drop in temperature)
CPU Cache: -130.6 vM (Rock stable)

[FIVR] button
Under Miscellaneous:
( ThrottleStop v9.3 > ) [ Unchecked ] V-Max Stress
( ThrottleStop v9.3 > ) [ Unchecked ] Thermal Velocity Boost

==================================================================

CPU Core: -1000.0 vM
A CPU core undervolt request of -1000 mV is mostly ignored. If your cache is at -130 mV then usually the maximum core is 100 mV more than that so -230 mV for the core. If you use -500 mV or -1000 mV, the majority of that is ignored and the CPU will use -230 mV instead.

If the full -1000 mV was being used, your computer would instantly crash. It needs some voltage. You cannot undervolt all of the voltage away.

[ Unchecked ] Thermal Velocity Boost (Definitely helped)
Good to know. I like free MHz.

Yeah, I thought it might be something like that... 8 (

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!! WARNING !! Do *NOT* [Uncheck] BD PROCHOT !!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's *NOT* worth it. The increase in performance is *negligible*, and your system will probably just lock up or reboot.

It depends on the computer. The difference in performance can be over 300% on some computers. Some computers are unusable when BD PRCOCHOT is checked. Just because something does not work on your computer does not mean everyone should not use it.

For hardware safety reasons, I do not believe "BD PROCHOT" should be *UNCHECKED*, but I do use the ThrottleStop [Options], "Lock PROCHOT Offset and PROCHOT Offset" function to raise the limit higher (98C)(CPU+Cache -130 undervolt). This is *much* safer for the hardware. And, thank you *very much* for adding it. 8 )

I tested this today:
============
CPU Core -230mV \ CPU Cache -130 mV \ CinebenchR23 8704 pts
CPU Core -1000mV \ CPU Cache -130 mV \ CinebenchR23 8704 pts

Exactly the same (⌣̩̩́_⌣̩̩̀)

!!! MSI !!! I NEED MORE *FREE* MHz !!! ლ(ಠ_ಠლ) !!! I'M POOR !!! PLEASE !!!

BD PROCHOT and PROCHOT (processor hot) are two different things. If BD PROCHOT is not checked, your computer will still thermal throttle and slow down if the CPU gets too hot. Most people confuse these two things. Most people think that if you disable BD PROCHOT that the CPU might get too hot and it will burn up because it will not thermal throttle anymore. This is not true at all. This is not what BD PROCHOT does.

Your laptop probably does not use BD PROCHOT. Do you ever see BD PROCHOT lighting up red in Limit Reasons? If your computer does not use BD PROCHOT then it will make zero difference whether this box is checked or not checked in ThrottleStop.

Sounds like your CPU is running great.

Hmmm... Probably *not*. As you said, it seems to have *no* effect.

Yes, it is. 8 )))

My best score so far was 8807 pts, but I can't remember how I got there...

For a "BestBuy $1099 US" laptop, this laptop is !! INCREDIBLE !! \(`0´)/ !!

144 Hz Anti-Glare 315 nits screen (Nice, but I wish it was at least 400 nits)

*Per-Key* RGB keyboard (The color of *each key* can be separately changed to either red, blue, green, white, yellow, etc... (I will never buy another computer without this feature again. It is seriously underrated)

All Black Metal Case (Lite, hard and very dark )

i7-10750H (4.2 GHz)(6 Cores) (I like the "Single-Core Performance" and 6 Cores, but I hate the amount of power this CPU draws. That will be my *next* laptop project)

16GB Ram (I will upgrade it later to 32GB for a Ram-Disk)

Nvidia RTX 2060 (80W)(Max-P) (I wish it were a 115W Super !!! WATTS IS KING !!!)

WD 512GB M.2 (with room for a second M.2)

99.9 WHr battery (!! HUGE !!) (This was the reason, I initially bought this laptop)

180W Charger (I wish it were a 230W)


Extras:
====

A unlocked OC Bios (i7-10750 does not allow for CPU Multipler or Voltage (I think ???) All of the Intel CPU's should be OC capable, because there "Price to Performance\Per-Watt" is disgusting!

ThunderBolt3 65W-100W C-Charger Port (Left-Side Only) TESTED and VERIFIED)

Windows 10 Hello Support (Face Recognition)


!!! AND IT LOOKS INCREDIBLE !!!


ahhh... sorry... i was gone for a while, but i'm back now... ( ・_・;)


I noticed that after a couple of weeks the fans started to sound smoother and less high pitched. So, I've been running them hard and long on Cooler Boost.
The volume isn't the problem, it's the high pitched sound they make. V e r y i r r i t a t i n g a n d a n n o y i n g . . .

The reviewers have been *far to kind* on these speakers. Totally unusable. There loud, but they sound like total 100% crap. No amount of tuning or software is going to fix this audio problem.
If I were the MSI CEO, I would fire all of my Audio Engineers, and hire the Acer or Apple Audio Engineers. *Except*, I am 100% certain, MSI does *NOT* have any Audio Engineers!
That's why there audio sounds like 100% crap! Electronic and Audio Engineers are *NOT* the same! Audio Engineers are trained in different types of physics, etc...
They are specialized, very expensive and hard to find.


i know... i know... i'm back again... ( ・_・;)
