MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE SETTINGS
UPDATED 30th of July
Read this thread:
Read as much as you can. You can find there very useful information.
You should read what every button/value does.
For reference,I'm on i7 9750H.Great cpu,can be undervolted a lot but runs very hot.I use liquid metal,Opolar cooler and stand cooler.
No name-6 fans-3000rpm cooler pad
Make sure of these:
your laptop is above the surface;
your fans inside the laptop aren't sending back the hot air (if it does ,isolate them);
your dust filter doesn't stop air from coming out or in (take it out if it does);
your laptop's holes are big enough and air is flowing continously;
your laptop's fans' speed is high (try software like Notebook Fan Control,TPFanControl,etc);
your ambient temperature is low in the summer;
This can cause overheating,make sure you have a proper cooling!
This is not a normal Throttlestop guide,this is a maximum performance guide!
This can cause overheating so make sure you have proper cooling!
Clock Modulation->100%Useful for old CPUs,100% means they won't throttle under 100% of their speed.
Set Multiplier->Maximum valueUsed by older CPUs,the value multiplied by 10 will be the CPU's frequency.
Speed Shift - EPP->0This value controls the cpu performance. 0 for maximum performance,255 for minimum performance.
SpeedStep-DisableThis does the same thing as Speed Shift but is for older CPUs.
C1E-DisableThis is a power saving feature.
BD PROCHOT-DisableThis is the last emergency action done by the CPU,means it will shut down at 100C+.
Some of these can be set by your own preferences but this is what I recommend.
Minimize on Close-Enabled
Table Grid Lines-Disabled
Nvidia GPU/AMD GPU-Enabled
PROCHOT OffsetIf your laptops has the PROCHOT to 95 or 96 put 2,this should raise the limit to 98 which won't go to extreme 100C so you won't risk your laptop to be shut down if that's the case.
AC Timer Res-0Timer resolution,lowest should be best for performance.
Turbo Ratio Limits-set every value to maximum
CPU Core Offset VoltageBefore setting this please research what values other people used for the same CPU as you got.For example: Search "Undervolt i7 7500U" and put the same value as someone else did,test,and then go lower or higher according to your results.
CPU Cache Offset VoltageDo the same as the Core Voltage.
ICCMax-set to maximumThis value increases the stability of the system. (change ICCMax for CPU Core and CPU Cache).
System Agent- between 0 to -20By undervolting this you risk to have much less stability when undervolting.
Intel GPUTThis value too should be equal to System Agent Offset Voltage.
iGPU UnsliceTThis value too should be equal to System Agent Offset Voltage.
Disable and Lock Turbo Power Limits-CheckThis disables your CPU's power limits (very useful).
Cache Ratio-set to maximum (min and max)This doesn't increase much performance but your CPU will overheat from this.Not recommended.
Save voltages immediately-checkDon't be afraid of BSODs,ThrottleStop won't start with faulty values.
Put "99999999" to every box on the right.
PP0 Power Limit-uncheck
Speed Shift-maximum value (put 99999)Somehow this "Speed Shift" is reversed than the one from the main page,bigger value is better,lower is slower.
Power Limit 3-uncheck
Intel Power Balance-Check and put maximum Value for CPU/minimum for GPU OOnly if you're using the dedicate GPU and not the iGPU.
Keep ThrottleStop always open in background.
Task Scheduler guide
1.Open Task Scheduler->Task Scheduler Library->Create Basic Task.
2.Put the name you want.
3.Check "When I log on.
4.Choose "Start a program".
5. Browse and choose your Throttlestop.exe.
5.Check "Open the Properties dialog for this task when I click Finish".
6.Check "Run only when user is logged on" and "Run with highest privileges".
Go to "Conditions" tab.
7.Uncheck "Stop if the computer switches to battery power" and "Start the task only if the computer is on AC power".
Go to "Settings" tab.
8.Uncheck "Stop the task if it runs longer than:" and "If the running task does not end when requested,force it to stop".
8.1.Check "Run task as soon as possible after a scheduled start is missed".
Alternative to Task Scheduler
Using Throttlestop as service

CINEBENCH R20 Results
Works best with Revision Power Plan:
Google Drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/18Y8ZvzIBMEQcCYhom7yHoMq6-HwYTZ6A/view?usp=sharing
Open cmd in the same directory as the power plan and write "powercfg -import %cd%\RevisionPowerPlanV2.8.pow " ,press Enter,go to power options and change to "Revision Extreme Performance".
