    Did you read post #5 ? https://imgur.com/a/hCMyS this is some pictures of my bios to prove I have no c state settings or anything really that I can do with my processor at all.

    Thank you for this @unclewebb. I've been very curious about this as well for my 7700HQ (XPS 15). During normal tasks all four clocks do hit 38x occasionally, but when running benches it locks at 34x and sometimes hitting 35x. Also, at idle the clocks on all four multipliers do dance around 38x.

    Would you be able to please confirm and/or correct the following settings that I currently have? I too am trying to get my multipliers to lock or stay at 38x as much as possible.

    ---

    TS Main Menu:

    Clock Modulation 100% -> Checked
    Set Multiplier -> 38T Checked
    Speed Shift - EPP -> Set to 0 and has SST to the right.
    BD PROCHOT -> Blank
    SpeedStep -> Checked

    FIVR:

    Turbo Ratio Limits are all set to 38x

    TPL: (This is where it starts to get fuzzy, as I'm not sure if changing these values even does anything since it's a locked chip.)

    Package Power Limits:

    Set all to Max?
    Clamp -> Checked?
    Lock -> Checked?

    Primary Plane Power Limits:
    Set all to Max?
    PP0 Current Limit -> Lock?
    PP0 Power Limit -> Checked?
    Lock -> Checked?
    Clamp -> Checked?
    PP0 Turbo Time Limit -> Max?

    Miscellaneous:
    Speed Shift -> Checked?
    Min. Value -> Tried setting it to 0, but defaults back to 1.
    Max. Value -> Keep at 255 or set to 38?
    Enable Speed Shift when TS starts -> Checked? Optional eh?
    Disable and Lock PL3 -> Check?
    TDP Level Control -> Check?
    Lock -> Check? (To the right keep value at 0?)
    Intel Power Balance (0..31) -> Check?
    Intel CPU -> Keep at 0?
    Intel GPU -> Keep at 0?

    C8 Menu:

    C3 Interrupt Response Limit:
    C3 / Valid -> Checked / Time Limit is 0 / Time Unit is at 2.
    C6 / Valid -> Checked / Time Limit is 118 / Time Unit is at 2.
    C7 / Valid -> Checked / Time Limit is 148 / Time Unit is at 2.

    C State Demotion:
    C3 Auto Demotion -> Checked
    C3 Undemotion -> Checked
    C1 Auto Demotion -> Checked
    C1 Undemotion -< Checked

    ----

    Thanks for everything.

    Uncheck Clamp( in primary power limits and package power), Intel Power balance and TDP control as well. @iunlock I'm not sure of C3 IRL limit, because my values are:
    C3 / Valid -> Checked / Time Limit is 78 / Time Unit is at 2.
    C6 / Valid -> Checked / Time Limit is 118 / Time Unit is at 2.
    C7 / Valid -> Checked / Time Limit is 148 / Time Unit is at 2.
    Maybe @unclewebb can help to debunk C state values.

    I need assistance with my own. I have a HP Omen with the i7-6700HQ as well. Here is some screens of my settings.

    When I do a TS Bench with 8 threads it's stuck at 3.1Ghz

    However when I do a single thread test I get 3.4Ghz.

    I really need some help setting this up correctly. Thanks.

    Load on 4 cores or 8 threads = 3.1GHz . No point in put all 4 cores to 35 on a fully locked down 6700hq.

    Don't undervolt iGPU.
    Your CPU is running as per specs. Even mine is same. Check out the link given by papusan.

    I have reset them to this:

    Are you saying that I cannot achieve more than 3.1Ghz using more than 1 thread?

    So there's no reason to use ThrottleStop at all then? I mean there's no benefit I'm getting from it at all?
