    Where exactly are those settings for EPP? I’ve been doing it through throttlestop.

    Also, I never considered whether power manager affects clock speed as well. I thought it was merely a fan management tool, which indirectly affects clock speed. But, I would think the optimized (or optimal?) setting would essentially be smart enough to turn into the ultra mode during an intensive task.

    Has anyone tested this in a benchmark?

    Since you are running Windows 1709

    Windows Control Panel>Power Options>change plan settings (for your selected power plan) >change advanced power settings

    Look in "processor power management" > "Processor energy performance preference policy" (dropdowns will be either 0-100% or 0-255)

    If they don't show up, you can reference this post to enable the dropdowns, which I clipped from the speedshift thread referenced above

    [EDITING]
    1. Make sure you are ADMIN in Windows PowerShell (or cmd)

    2. Rather than use the GUID Alias (SUB_PROCESSOR ), you might need to use the Subgroup GUID (54533251-82be-4824-96c1-47b60b740d00). For example, to just show "Processor energy performance preference policy", use the first line rather than the second line below:

    powercfg –attributes SUB_PROCESSOR 36687f9e-e3a5-4dbf-b1dc-15eb381c6863 -ATTRIB_HIDE

    powercfg –attributes 54533251-82be-4824-96c1-47b60b740d00 36687f9e-e3a5-4dbf-b1dc-15eb381c6863 -ATTRIB_HIDE

    You can print out your power configuration GUIDs to confirm if you like but I haven't seen that these have changed recently.

    3. Sometimes copying code from a browser adds some strange characters or spaces. Sometimes pasting the code into a notepad then into PowerShell (minding the spaces) can resolve that. [END EDITING]


    If you open the Dell Command I Power Manager, the four settings state that they will adjust fans and performance. I can't read what registers Dell is changing; I can hear changes in fan behaviour and Quiet is indeed Quieter.

    No idea.

    Ah, got it. I am running the new windows update, so that is why I don't see it (I think). Throttlestop seems to be doing a good job with it.

    Well if location or procedure has changed with new windows update, please post that on the SpeedShift thread.

    I'm very impressed with the CPU actually. CB loop score is nearly double that of the i7-7700HQ 9560 (1128 vs 680). CPU is pulling 60W consistently throughout the test.

    entering those commands gives me an invalid parameter error.

    1) Finally Eason's post was the hint. Switching in Bios to S3 Sleep brings back the old energy options.

    2) Temps: I repasted both the cpu and gpu with Grizzly liquid metal. I only tested with prime; all cores@2.700 MHZ, now 70-72°C, before repasting 90 -97°C.

    How long did you test prime for? I found that my initial temps were much lower but as the heatsink became saturated with heat the average was ~6C lower. Also mine stock wouldn't average near 90C due to power throttling.

    Not long, about 20 min.
    Next days I'm gonna post some pics. Dell did a really poor pastejob (as Apple too).

    Did you notice an increase in clock speed or did the test ran at 2.700 MHZ before and after the liquid metal repaste?
