Undervolting My Laptop

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have an Asus Scar 2 GL504GS, with a gtx 1070 and an I7 8750H, im constantly having thermal issues so I decided to try undervolting, I am currently using intel extreme tuning utility and I have currently undervolted to -0.090 V on Core Voltage Offset and on Cache Voltage Offset, and it seems that im still having thermal issues after undervolting. Can anyone help me by giving me undervolt settings for my I7 8750H??

First of All 

What are your temps ? And before undervolting clean the laptop and dust it off.

Before undervolting I used to get mostly +90 degrees and often at 95 degrees celcius, now after undervolting im still getting 90-94 degrees celcius, and yes I have already cleaned my laptop and gotten rid of all the dust

If non of that worked 

Undervolt slightly and then stop when it becomes unstable 

There's no "best undervolt" as every silicon is different in terms of their capabilities.

so are you saying that I should continue undervolting more and more until I start to get a BSOD??

Basically until it starts being unstable 

As I said , no one can actually know an optimal set up because each cpu is different with it's capabilities.

Undervolting on its own won't reduce your temps, so it's normal.

 

Laptop CPUs are almost always significantly thermally constrained, so they will boost freq until they get to maximum set temp, then throttle down enough to keep the temp there when they do. 

Undervolt means less heat output but it'll still reach the same temp, just throttle down less.

 

So just an undervolt typically increases performance a bit but doesn't affect under load temps much. To get it to run cooler you also have to limit performance lower.
