    Thanks for the tip regarding core and cache undervolt! I had no idea. I thought that one of the benefits of ThrottleStop vs XTU was that you could de-couple the 2 voltages.

    BTW my machine is a 9360 with a Kaby Lake CPU, hence why I posted in this thread ;)

    Hi @pressing - I tried to look this up but could not find any info on this. I did, however, find a couple of users stating they were fine running CPU Core at -0.125v and CPU cache at -0.100v (for example). And at one point Uncle Webb seemed to indicate that was fine.
    Perhaps what you mentioned is no longer an issue with 7th gen and 8th gen CPUs?

    Here are some places to look but there is more in that thread. One problem is that very little Intel documentation exists so you this is trial and error you need to run

    Finally put my order in for 9360 after seeing & hearing about 9370 and deciding not to go with it since I can get 8th gen. Intel with last year's model as well! The only question I have beforehand is that does Dell have some kind of an automatic battery cycle management builtin? I mean I'm used to having to limit max. battery charge at 80% because I'm working with it plugged-in most of the time, but e.g. newer ThinkPads handle usage like this automatically without the need to manually intervene in any way.

    Yes it's in the bios. i have my 9360 set to "Primarily on AC". By default it's set to "Adaptive". You can also set it to "Custom" and type in your own values.
