  1. W3670 is a good CPU. They do not cost much money. The Xeon W3680 has an unlocked multiplier. It has the same specifications as the Core i7-980X Extreme but the Xeon is less expensive. They are very easy to overclock. You just need to increase the voltage. They are very reliable. All of these CPUs consume the same amount of power when they are running at the same speed. The TDP rating is not important. The turbo power limits on the W3680 are unlocked. You can use ThrottleStop and you can set the power limits to whatever number you like. You can change a W36
  2. sorry for interfering, but i recently saw your comment about throttlestop setting, but can i ask you how to know how good is my cooling for how much Watts


  3. My Asus BIOS has them in the AI Tweaker section. The Long and Short Duration Package Power Limits. These are also known as PL1 and PL2.
  4. Most cfg lock tutorials are for Dell laptops. Most Asus owners need to find and install an older bios which Asus hides from their website.
  5. What BIOS did you go back to? I think 308 was the last one that allowed CPU voltage control. Do some Google searching. Someone with your laptop model has had the same problem. To use Speed Shift, you have to first enable this in the TPL window. It should show SST in green on the main screen when Speed Shift is enabled.
  6. Intel designed the Core i5-10400 to reduce its speed slightly when all 6 cores are active. https://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i5/Intel-Core i5 i5-10400.html When 1 core is active it can run at up to 4300 MHz and when all 6 cores are active, the maximum speed is 4000 MHz. Task Manager MHz reporting is not 100% accurate but it is close enough. Your CPU is running at its full rated speed. No signs of any thermal or power limit throttling. That depends on the CPU. You can run Intel CPUs at their full rated speed all of the time as long as they are not therm
  7. XTU does not report this type of throttling correctly. Try using ThrottleStop. https://www.techpowerup.com/download/techpowerup-throttlestop/ Click on the Limits button and open up the Limit Reasons window. When your CPU is stuck at 800 MHz, does Limit Reasons show BD PROCHOT in red? This is the most likely reason for throttling. You can clear the BD PROCHOT box on the main screen of ThrottleStop. Your CPU will immediately start running at its full rated speed. Get rid of XTU. Your CPU is not hot so it is definitely not thermal throttling.
  8. Does the FIVR window in ThrottleStop 9.3 show that CPU voltage control is Locked or Not Available? What CPU model do you have? Intel completely disabled CPU voltage control on the 11th Gen U and G7 series. The new 11th Gen H series allows undervolting but only if the BIOS has unlocked this feature. Many MSI laptops have an option in their advanced BIOS to unlock voltage control. Most other laptops do not.
  9. @Garethb Run Sensors only. Look for VCore voltage.
  10. The line method is intended for desktop CPUs that use an integrated heat spreader. For a mobile CPU, try spreading it. The paste has to cover the entire CPU.
  11. @Garethb If your CPU and memory were actually at 4V, they would already be dead. Can you boot up into Windows? What does HWiNFO report?
  12. Most gaming laptops with Intel CPUs are designed to run for hours at 90C. Servers shoved in broom closets also run hot 24/7. 75C is a normal operating temperature. You can slow your CPU down if you want to but your CPU will never know the difference.
  13. Who told you that a QDE8 is a 4770S? This ES has nothing in common with that CPU. Max turbo is only 3.0 GHz. https://www.cpu-world.com/sspec/QD/QDE8.html
  14. Reducing the CPU bottleneck allows the GPU to work harder. Intel CPUs are designed to work reliably up to 100C. No need to worry too much about the CPU temperature unless it is thernal throttling and reducing performance. At reduced voltage, your gaming temps should be OK.
  15. Cinebench R20 is not a very demanding test. You might be limited to -75 mV to be game stable.
