  1. Hi @Tabs, I am facing an issue. Whenever I am restarting the system. The settings of XTU are getting defaulted (reverted) and no Undervolt is applied. How do I fix it? Thanks
  2. Will update this post in sometime now. I need to re-check something.
  3. Hi, Thanks for the reply @Tabs. I have attached the screenshot: After Doing -.110 Undervolt, No Max Fan Speed (Auto), No Undercloacking (No Speed Lock, All Default) After Doing -.120 Undervolt, No Max Fan Speed (Auto), No Undercloacking (No Speed Lock, All Default) Do you think if the temp. are good? One thing to mention again that the temp. goes to 90s only if all the cores are not active. What kind I do in that case to make it stop reaching 90s?
  4. It's late over here right now. I will check tomorrow with ThrottleStop and let you know the same. Do you come daily on forum? Thanks.
  5. Do you have a laptop or PC?
  6. Actually, I have Acer Predator 15. Acer has a highly active forum for themselves (my intention is not promotion). There people are very much into Undervolting and all this things because of the high temp. Now, there is one person who is famously known for his skills with Acer Predator Laptops. He made a video with ThrottleStop. I followed his videos and with the throttlestop I was actually able to limit the turbo boosts. How can I do it with the XTU? Since, you know if ThrottleStop can? Somewhere XTU also can?
  7. Okay. I checked. It's coming as grayed. Why is that so? How can I do it?
  8. Thanks again for the solid answer. You have such an awesome information. If you don't mind. As you might know already, I am new in all these things. Could you tell me.. Where in the XTU I should do the needful so that I can limit the Turbo Boosts? Thanks.
  9. Thanks for the solid answer, This is one of the best explanations I have ever had. I have 2-3 things more to ask. How can I limit my processor to go with 3400 (3.4 Ghz max for any number of cores and regardless of how many cores are active)? Because right now, It can go to 3.8 (3800) and I want it to limit a bit to 3.4 for all so that it doesn't go as high as 90s temp. The reason for doing so is because the lesser your temp. is the more your CPU's life is. I hope you might agree with it.
  10. Even if I run on the full volt (without any undervolting) or in other words default. My CPU Core Speed max. is 3400 only (3.4 Ghz) it doesn't go to 3.8 Ghz in that case as well.
  11. ls that also possible that the games aren't using all the cores at once and in the meanwhile some background process is causing up the laptop to go as high as 93 Deg. C? If that's possible? How can I monitor it and rectify it? Because I don't know what's causing it to happen. So if my laptop usage for one of the core is 3.8 Ghz (Full Turbo), My Temp. for that core goes to 85-95 deg. C
  12. I'm AC Power Connected, Charged Plugged in. 100% Full Performance in Battery Selection.
  13. Oh Okay. Actually such things never happened with me on PC. It's my first time experience with such processor. Okay, I get that. But my overheating issue comes when I play games (Rainbow Six Siege and PUBG). Why is that so? Right now, I am stress testing but temp. is max. going to 85. But when I play game? It goes as high as 95. That's disastrous.
  14. Hi. I'm sorry to say but my knowledge is very limited when it comes to Laptop Processors. What do you mean by Locked Processor? Well, I have undervolted it by -0.110 only but it's not reaching the max. speeds which is 3.8 Ghz (which is mentioned on Intel Website).
  15. Hello, I am having Intel i7 7700 HQ with GTX 1060 6GB in my Laptop purchased 1 week back. Official Intel 7700HQ Page: https://ark.intel.com/products/97185/Intel-Core-i7-7700HQ-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_80-GHz Now, I am trying to deal with the overheating issues. I am doing undervolting but whenever I am trying to do the Stress Testing. It is not taking full 3.8 Ghz Speed. It only takes 3.4 Ghz speed. I have only undervolted and rest of the settings are default (not changed). Why is that happening? Reason for posting in this section: I am not facing issues specifically with the Laptop or it's pre-sale. I am facing a component related doubt. Thanks.
