Power Limit Question

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Sorry for my english.

So I have a laptop Acer Aspire 5 with an i5-8265u and a GeForce MX250.

Under heavy load my cpu doesn't thermal throttling it is only power limited, it stays in the 78º degrees. I think it is locked at 15 watts but I see here in the HWiNFO64 that the max it got was 30 watts is there anyway that I can make it use always the 30watts till thermal throttle. And for the Gpu the same thing.

you might not be able to then without messing with vbios. not all laptops allow for voltage control, yours may be one of them.

How risky is it to mess with the vbois? And what are the ods of that working?
