Processor with Errors in overclocking (Questions with TPL)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I've runned just to check my temps some rounds with wPrime (1.55) and was wondering why my multiplikator isn't that high as I've choosen it.

My last run was follow: (with i7 920xm)

24x Multi


133.005 Standard BCLK

No Voltage Increase

(Read out with Throttlestop 3.00)

Were sitting at my U3 Cooler. Temps were maximal 90°C (on 1st and 2nd line), others at 85°C and last 2 were only 77°C.

Is that normal?

So here is the 1024 Score: 372,487 secs. At all tests my multiplikator is jumping down to 17 and goes maximal to 20-21!! (Never hitted the 24x)

What have I done wrong? (Idle temp is at only 45°C)

The temperature difference is quite big, you need to repaste. On mine the cores with the minimum and maximum temps usually have 2-3 C difference.

Yeah, what Stam says... repaste time :)

Also, 62W TPD is too low for 24x on all cores, you'll need about 78-82W for this, can't remember. You can easily test it with a 32m wPrime test: Set it to 8 threads, set all the TDP and multi in Throttlestop and start the test. Watch the multis and load in TS, when everything is set properly the multis will go up to the set level and the load will be at 100%. If the load isn't at 100% during the test, or the multi doesn't hit the max set value, your TDP setting is too low.

Download ThrottleStop 4.10 from my signature. There have been a few improvements since TS 3.00.

You need to significantly improve cooling before you can maximize the performance of your 920XM

Thanks for Infos, will repaste when gpu arrives.

Great advice from three great minds above. The tension on each of the four cpu screws may need to be adjusted wjile system is open ie attach lcd cables again and the basic wiring to be able to turn system on anfter repasting and slowly tighten the four screws down from 1-4 in order and start to slow down by screw 3 and four to see where the temps start to improve. Close system and give a final test again.

If you havent already you can use HWiNFO fan control to keep cpu colest possible from the start of the test or even better make a fan profile that kicks fans in at higher levels sooner than the stock EC fan control.

      Hello everyone,
      My new laptop Thunderobot Zero 11800H_RTX3060 have a locked bios. I tried CPU undervolt via ThrottleStop utility and Intel XTU utility, but they didn't work. I heard I need to unlock advanced settings in BIOS to unlock these utilities. So, I need help to unlock hidden advanced settings. Thanks!

      Hello everyone,
      I have a Lenovo Y50-70 touch, i7-4700, gtx 860m. I'm having some throttling issues with games on MINIMUM settings. Most games, load up screens and such are causing major stuttering. I'm running them windowed right now to monitor values on nvidia inspector and throttlestop. MSI afterburner isn't giving me much information. 
      I'm getting PL2, EDP and POWER errors on throttlestop. Active throttling.
      Here are some timestamps and data.

      If anyone has any ideas or advice, please don't hesitate to tell me.
      I'd like to avoid buying a new computer, but I've had this unit for about 5-6 years.
      When I first bought it, it did have to get serviced due to a motherboard failure. I did notice the lack of processing power though, it always felt kind of slow after that.

      I dont know if this is the right forum to post this,  (but i need 5 posts for downloading a  vbios)
      so my questions are these, thank you in advance for reading
      I have bought a laptop with a half melted 880M GPU Im assuming the person did not keep an eye on temps,
      so i went and replaced the card, it runs fine, (alright) but still, I remember modding my VBIOS for my 680 GTX back in the day, and it was fine, exceptionally faster, 
      and im looking for that 60 fps LOCK, like i got on my 680 after modding the vbios, 
      I did increase the voltage on the card to 1.212 I believe, from 1.114 ,
      anyway I considering modding the cooling system as well for this laptop, because it definitely lacks cooling 
      My plan is to put another laptop fan (where the HDD1 bay is in the Alienware 17) bcause I removed that hdd it was constantly at 57c which is bad
      even think it suffered some damage as speeds on it for specific games and tasks are pretty long, and it stays at 100% some times, which is weird, but it still works, so im using it.lol
      , but in the meantime, I turned the laptop upside down, plugged in the HDMI cable, and now im blasting a ROOM fan at it, which is definitely helping with temps
      before I would try to throttle the gpu speed at 77C, or 73C depending on the game or even saying screw it, I dont want throttling, and putting the throttle point to 83C,
      I use SPEEDFAN , and it helps keep the laptop relativly cool, except when the gpu is under full load,  putting my hand on it is ridiculously hot, so, with the fan on it, its not going above 70,
      and taking a LONG time to get up there, 
      i am playing metro last light at around 60C at 60+ fps, where as before my temps were shooting upto 80 and it would hit the throttle point, so  seeing as how this is a 120 HZ laptop, I rather not push it, since the card is not capable (and if it is, the cooling sure isnt)
      the plan is to put the fan inside the HDD1 bay, and POSSIBLY  daisey chain it to either A) the cpu fan header, or  B ) the gpu fan hjeader, 
      not sure which "rails" the power for these comes from, would it be able to handle another fan???
      it seems like a legit idea, seeing as how the rear of the heatsink has NO heat dissipation at all. which is the part that melted offcausing the old  card to die in the first place.
      basically the thermal pads look like they gunked the card and it was unfixable, I have a post to it on the Alienware Forum, which i could link later,
      is it a good idea, and will the VBIOS WORK with my 880M (DELL) from a clevo, (now in an alienware) im assuming they are compatible, as long as they are dell.
      also would I be able to get a Y adapter for the inside of a laptop fan, that would be AMAZING, i know they sell them for Desktops.

      I recently cleaned my laptop and changed thermal paste, so GPU has a lot of headroom for OC. At full load it's at 60c. And throttling only starts at 87c for both CPU and GPU.
      I searched everywhere, but it seems no one really modded this laptop's VBIOS.
      I found one person who does it, but he requires a donation for it. Since I don't have a lot of money I didn't even try to donate and see if it's enough.
      So maybe someone can help me out here? 
      The laptop is with i7-4720HQ downclocked to 3.0 Ghz instead of 3.6 Ghz due to temperatures at full load, 16 GB of DDR3 ram and a GTX 970M 3GB.
      Added link for original VBIOS file. 
      Direct download link from MSI.
      Driver version for the lazy -

      Hi guys,
      Apologies for posting on multiple forums. I cant seem to get ThrottleStop to work since reinstalling windows 10.
      Previously Throttlestop seemed to be the only way to get the Turbo Boost functioning and it was working well. I was running the m15x with an i7920XM and 7970m and all working great (after a minor BIOS blip with the 7970m). However, I hadn't used the laptop for about a year (built a new desktop) and wanted to get it ready to sell (hence the clean Windows install). I've now reinstalled windows and ThrottleStop but now the multiplier doesn't seem to change no matter what settings I tweak. It just stays at a multiplier of 9 which kind of defeats the point of having the i7 Extreme.
      Has anyone come across this? Maybe i'm just forgetting something (its been a while). Maybe I've installed it wrong?
      Set Multiplier ticked and set to 16T, Disable Turbo unticked, Power Saver unticked, TRL set to 26, 25, 20, 20.
      Please help!
