    What about it? If you limit processor performance manually of course it's going to do something like that.

    It doesn't change the fact that out of the box, under sufficient load, the CPU WILL hold turbo, unless there's some limiting factor like temperature, or power (BOTH of which can and will throttle a CPU below "base clocks"), or... the system is designed/set up to throttle artificially.

    You can look with Intel's own XTU program. Stress the chip, making sure it's not hitting a power or thermal wall. If you ever drop speeds it's going to say throttling, probably current limit throttling.

    The higher clockspeed goes the more a CPU will suck power. There's certainly a break point where speed overtakes efficiency, but... it really isn't any kind of big issue normally. Look at processors with a tiny boost table like a 7700K? Only 200MHz over "base" for all-core turbo.

    All good points, and perfectly valid for older CPUs. The i7 8750H which NomadFX is talking about has a base clock of 2.2 GHz and Turbo clock of 4.1 GHz. There's just no way such a huge boost, with the associated increase in power dissipation, can be sustained in a laptop scenario. In a desktop with ice water cooling, maybe, but in a laptop where the cooling solution can barely handle the base TDP, the temperature will spike under Turbo Boost, and the CPU will throttle when the temperature gets too high. It is not a bad thing - it has been designed that way. We just need to work with it.

    Awesome, at a first glance, both fixes seem to work on my working laptop (with the 8750H cpu). Much love!

    @anytimer thx again.

    @ALL naysayers: the pastejob is ok, everything is fine with my device, heatpads etc.
    ~50° idling with many programms running @ summer conditions. max cpu temp today 94° regarding the Fan Control Info Tab. The spikes are crazy (+30-40° suddenly for 1-2 secs.) but im getting used to them.

    Thanks for reporting...
    Yeah know those spikes very well, this 8th gen heats up soooooooo fast that its scary!

    1) I found that after u updated the app and keep Keyboard LED hiding at system tray, Control Station will restart and another new Keyboard LED instance will be created. Then u will have 2 Keyboard LED instances.
    2) Every time you boot the laptop, the keyboard LED light will become enabled again even you already set to disabled at Keyboard LED. Seems like the setting is not saved permanently.

    4.2ghz is the single core turbo, it should be able to handle that with ease. All core turbo is 3.9ghz.

    It notably doesn't have a turbo of 4.1ghz unless it's for like 2 cores or something.

    And if it throttles because of temps... it's still throttling.

    How's the finstack? Is it clean? They can get rather clogged with dust.

    In addition to what @optimisez mentioned, I found that when I clicked the Fan Control/Updater icon in the Control Station window, sometimes the Keyboard LED app got activated too. Not sure if it's related to the update process though.

    UPDATER
    Updater is a software package that allows you to update your CLEVO laptop in a easy way.

    It includes a series of workarounds, checks, modded drivers, install functions, etc, all made to prevent common install problems.

    We monitor dozens of websites and manufacturer driver repositories to check for the latest versions, we test them, and then we add them to our server. We use a fast server to allow you to download everything as fast as possible.

    We are very active in the forum and we will take action about any reported bug in record time!

    The software will auto update to the latest version with a single click

    We now support 38 different CLEVO models!

    Each license will work for the lifetime of your laptop.

    BIOS updates are available only for laptops from resellers who have made agreements with us, and the BIOS are linked by them, we do not provide any BIOS ourselves (unless you have an OBSIDIAN-PC laptop, if you do then the BIOS tab will show up and you can update BIOS and EC with a single click).

    [​IMG]

    Out of the box, the software can be themed, you can change icons, colors and title to match your brand.
    Resellers can offer the app to their clients or sell them as an optional software pack. We offer discounted prices for resellers (contact us).

    @John@OBSIDIAN-PC @Phoenix could you edit (or give editing permissions) to John to post updates, new links, progress, info etc in the very first post of this thread to make following it easier for people to know what's going on? Since this thread also has discussions regarding the software and that creates a lot of pages
