    Hey guys I have the following issue: I have been playing Overwatch for a while. Everything works well and after re-pasting and undervolting, the GPU remains below <86 degrees celcius and the CPU below <75 degrees Celsius. Despite these low temperatures, after roughly ~ 30 minutes, the CPU starts to throttle to 1GHZ even though the temperatures do not warrant throttling at all.

    Does anyone have an idea on how to fix this?

    Cheers!

    So provide him a link where you can get a full featured 9550, with european country specific keyboard, including 2 years warrenty (for europe), including transport and customs. I think he will like it.

    Gagvan,

    What software are you using to undervolt? If it is XTU then I noticed a bug that caused the CPU to power throttle at ~80*C. Deleting XTU and using ThrottleStop solved that issue for me. You can not run XTU and ThrottleStop at the same time!

    You can search my post for more details.

    Alternatively, as GonZ0 noted, that could be the insides cooking and your laptop trying to save itself by throttling. . .

    What BIOS are you running ? I noticed worst temp management on 1.2.10 than 1.2

    I also have throttling in OV, i dont konw what to do tbh, i used to game DOTA and other games and never had this much throttling, lately is getting worse.

    my message never appeared. I was saying that hammering it with overwatch for that long has probably heated up other parts of the laptop causing it to throttle, it isn't just the CPU/GPU that will throttle it.
