    Was the xtu service running in task Manager? Usually XTU and TS don't play nice if run simultaneously.
    Use HWINFO sensors to see PL1 and PL2 Limits set to 92W. XTU produces garbage values if TS modifies anything.
    Open services.msc and check if Xtu service is running or not?

    Xtu was not running and is not running now.

    I could just uninstall XTU.

    if I set it in TS then i save and use turn on?

    Yes that should do it. If you don't press Turn ON TS won't work. In addition to that, uncheck speedstep and simply use Speedshift because it can ramp up/down the clocks in few nano seconds and faster than OS P states.

    High performance power plan will always have the clocks ramped up to max.

    In the new creators update you don't get a high performance power plan.

    I have unchecked speedstep. Do I need to check speedshift-EPP or check speed shift within the TPL menu?

    I have tried whatever I can to get Throttlestop to set my TDP however it simply wont.

    You can get the old profiles back but you have to disable "Modern Standby" via regedit.

    Or pick what you want of power options in Windows Mobility Center.

    Yeah, The M$ Morons try to force us all over on Balanced power plans now. Because this power plan fits very well for the new hardware "Snapdragon chipsets" [​IMG] + their own utter Trash!!

    Windoze X desktop Tablet OS is redesigned for coming weaker hardware!! Microsoft: days of battery times with Windows laptops still this year? More of same ****y sadness...
    Here - Here - Here - Here:no: @Phoenix :rolleyes: Want the new throttlemonster from Micro$haft? As it fits Win X like a hand in glove. Or this one?
