    Intel extreme setting sometimes drops to default?

    Lots of data in the log files but it covers a wide range of activity over two days. When running various programs you did some sleep - resume cycles, some power plan changes and probably 101 other changes. Without being there, it is difficult to pinpoint anything. The second log file does show...

    Intel extreme setting sometimes drops to default?

    Good idea. XTU is very inconsistent. When you compare what XTU shows you to what the CPU power registers are actually set to, there are times when the two are not the same at all. The BIOS in my laptop locks the power limit register but you would never know this. XTU shows changes being applied...

    Intel extreme setting sometimes drops to default?

    Have you uninstalled Intel XTU yet? Have you done any testing to see if there is a difference between first booting up compared to after a sleep - resume cycle? How are you concluding that your CPU is in 15W mode or 25W mode? Did you press the OK button in the ThrottleStop TPL window? The INI...

    Intel extreme setting sometimes drops to default?

    Some laptops lock the turbo power limits. They might lock them before you first boot up. After you do a sleep resume cycle, then they become unlocked. The opposite can also happen where the turbo power limits are initially left unlocked but doing a sleep resume cycle locks them. Intel XTU also...

    Intel extreme setting sometimes drops to default?

    When you exit the FIVR window are you pressing the OK button or are you clicking on the X close gadget in the top right corner? The close gadget in Windows means do not save any changes. The INI file should show entries like this. FIVRVoltage00=0xFAE00024 UnlockVoltage00=1 When you are in...

    Post some screenshots of how you have ThrottleStop setup. Have you checked the FIVR - Disable and Lock Turbo Power Limits box? Upload the ThrottleStop.INI config file so I can have a look. Just because your CPU is not running the way you want it to run does not mean that ThrottleStop is not...

    Intel extreme setting sometimes drops to default?

    XTU always has issues with restoring settings, especially after resuming from sleep or hibernate mode. Try using ThrottleStop again. Did you unzip ThrottleStop into its own folder? It cannot create a configuration file if you run the program from a zipped folder. Did you move the ThrottleStop...

    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 8750H turbo speed

    The 8750H adjusts its maximum speed based on how many cores are active. 1 or 2 Cores Active - 4.10 GHz 3 or 4 Cores Active - 4.00 GHz 5 or 6 Cores Active - 3.90 GHz These speeds will only be reached if the CPU is not thermal throttling or throttling because it has reached one of the turbo...

    Intel Extreme Tuning & OEM's

    The Xeon W3680 / W3690 are almost identical to the Core i7-980X Extreme and the Core i7-990X Extreme. They all have an unlocked multiplier which allows for easy overclocking. Intel might have set a different default multiplier and shipped them in different boxes but they are all built on the...

    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    The OEM heatsink in the T3500 is actually pretty good. The problem is that the only air blowing through it is from the case fans but this can easily be fixed. There is lots of room so you can strap a case fan to the side of the heatsink and get some proper airflow going through it. Big...

    Possible Intel i3-6100 CPU eBay scam?

    The i3-6100 is obsolete. It was a good little processor, especially if you had a motherboard that you could do some BCLK overclocking. Unfortunately this was a bit of a hack so you lost the AVX instructions and there were a few other issues when BCLK overlclocking Skylake on most boards. The...

    How to auto disable C1E w/ script?

    USMC2Hard4U - Most popular monitoring apps do not give you any indication if C1E is enabled or not. Great to hear that you found 2 apps that tell it like it is and that your problem is solved. ThrottleStop should be showing the same multiplier across all threads whether idle or fully loaded...

    How to auto disable C1E w/ script?

    C1E is controlled by a single bit in the CPU. You cannot access registers in the CPU with a simple script. Have you tried using ThrottleStop? It was written by the same guy that wrote RealTemp. (me) The ThrottleStop Guide The latest version should correctly support your Broadwell Xeon and...
