    Lower temp and lower power consumption is never a bad idea on a fully locked down chips. The CPU can run it's rated max Turbo Boost without throttle <if power consumption don't reach 45W limit>. Undervolt = lower heat - lower power consumption.

    ok cool. I have done something and now it's stuck at 3.2Ghz no matter what.

    How do I reset ALL values?

    Exit ThrottleStop and delete ThrottleStop.ini file in TS FOLDER and then reboot. Take notice of what settings used <if> needed (sceenshoot). This will force ThrottleStop to create a new configuration file when it starts and it will read the current state of your CPU for its default values.

    ThrottleStop don't alter bios settings. Post pict of current TS settings. And WinCrap X is a trash OS. Newer the worse!!
