    additional information:

    HT off
    6c: with one of my special FEM software (multicore support) I get about 25% faster calculation results when I deactivate HT Hyper Threading in bios.

    with new paste
    1c: with one of my special FEM software (single core support ) now I get continuous > 4.4 Ghz for 5h (XTU -100mV without multiplier changes)

    I wanted to go with a precision 7540, but now
    my 9570 can stay with me longer

    Hi,

    I own the Dell XPS 15 9570, i7 8750H 32 GB Ram, 1TB Nvme SSD, GTX 1050Ti-MaxQ. I am still fairly new to this stuff, but I noticed that my performance is not as it used to be. The first time I bought it, it crushed games. I don't game much, I mainly play League of Legends and CS:GO. However, I did notice that my fps were dropping every now and then and I started to get annoyed. I've been reading from a lot of forums recently, and I see that people have been suggesting undervolting. I have downloaded throttlestop, msi afterburner and kombustor. Initially, I just followed people's number so I undervolted at -125mV on my core and cache, I tried some other things like undervolting my iGPU. I'm a bit of a perfectionist, but a noob at undervolting. It frustrates me that my laptop is not performing to its maximum potential. Many people suggest different things, some even suggest overclocking teh dGPU which honestly confuses me. I also noticed from a lot of reading that there is a stupid cap on the dGPU's temperature at 74c. I tried to undervolt my dGPU on the MSI afterburner, a flat curve around the base clock. However, after all of this, I still don't know if my undervolt is stable. I am seeing better temperatures, but I would like to ask for help from you guys since this forum seems to have XPS 15 owners still discussing how to mazimize performance in 2020.

    TL;DR

    I need help with my throttlestop settings and undervolting my dGPU. I want to know how to test for stability, what my speedshift settings should be and what to set my Turbo Boost Power Limit settings.

    Some have suggested undervolting CPU which I have done, some overclocking dGPU, some capping the power that goes to the CPU. So, I would like to know what is the best I can do to improve the performance of my laptop and stop it from throttling.

    I intend to only adjust settings of my internals and I'm not interested in using thermal pads, or thermal paste, given I don't play very intensive games (League of Legends, CS:GO). I'm also not big on disabling turbo, because I feel like I've been scammed.

    Thanks for your time!

    Hi, I'm very late to the party but I guess I finally found the courage and insight to mod my XPS 15 9570. I've been reading through the forum but for some reason I'm slightly confused. I want to try out the iunlock Mk5 mod done by @custom90gt. But I'm slightly confused while reading for some reason, did @custom90gt cut the stock copper liner and levelled them out as iunlock did in xps 15 9560 or was it just the aluminum heastinks and the thermal pads connecting to the backplate of the case? I would appreciate anyone who could answer this in 2020. I'm bored because of Covid-19 and I thought I'd give it a shot as I have finally gained the courage to open up my laptop.

    For the last (and best according to my testing) revision I did NOT run the copper sink, I just did the five pictured VRM heatsinks and used thermal pad to connect them to the bottom panel. It's the easiest of all of the revisions.

    Here is my poor instructions:
    "only the VRM near the first ambient sensor padded (5 total) and their heatsinks sinked to the bottom of the case. Ram with thermal pad to bottom cover and PCH with heatsinks and thermalpad between the sinks and bottom cover."

    You can see on the first page which 5 vrms had heatsinks.

    Ah, I see. Thank you so much. I will work on it once I get the heatsinks delivered. Also, @custom90gt did you use electric tape for the PCH, I'm assuming to ensure a better seal?

    Another question. I've seen many people say that connecting thermal pad to the backplate can make heat build up more and make things worse and some are doing this thermal pad bridge instead to their heatsink. Any thoughts? Thank you for your time.
