Quick Start

Undervolt

Undervolting your processor can gain significant power savings

Reducing the operating voltage of the processor can lower thermal output and improve sustained performance

WARNING: Undervolting can reduce system stability - if you experience system stability issues reduce or disable your undervolt

Turbo Boost

Control whether the processor can operate above its base frequency

Preventing the processor from operating above its base frequency can save power - this can impact performance in heavy tasks

Power Limit

Set a powerlimit for your processor to operate under

The powerlimit will scale the processors frequency during tasks to stay under the set boundry

Decreasing the powerlimit can impact performance but improve battery life and thermals
