    I have a problem that Control Center 2.0 keeps chaning my Power Limit 1 and 2. Sometimes when I start the laptop, I have 35W on Power Limit 1 and 4095W on Power Limit 2. Then when I restart again and it changes to 95W Power Limit 1 and 773W on Power Limit 2. I keep setting it to 110W and 150W but it keeps changing.

    Is this normal?

    If you have XTU installed it might be overwriting. Otherwise, uninstall and delete any leftover folders before reinstalling.

    I did have XTU installed but I have uninstalled it but as you say, there is some leftover files from XTU which I cant delete (it is currently in use by some software)

    Is there any link for a standalone Control Center 2.0 installation file?

    Okay, I found the latest software on clevos site and downloaded version 1.0.78. When I uninstalled my current Control Center, verison 1.0.64, the XTU folder disappeared so I thought that everything was good, However, when I installed Control Center 2.0 1.0.78 version, the Intel XTU folder CAME BACK!

    CCC uses an XTU service, so that's normal. However, when you have both CCC and XTU standalone installed, they conflict with each other. Did the PL1/PL2 stop changing?

    It seems to remember my previous settings. The PL1/PL2 keeps living its own life and when I now installed 1.0.78, I saw that my settings were back to before I uninstalled it.

    Everytime I restart the laptop, the PL1 goes to 95W and PL2 goes to 4098. If I press "Default", PL1 goes to 120W and PL2 goes to 160W but changes to 95/4098 after I restart again.
