    So I have a P775DM3 and I finally got around to delidding the processor to give me some headroom.
    Since I've purchased the unit I've noticed my 3dmark cpu scores were a bit low. Well I noticed today that when under stress the cpu will downclock itself to as low as 3600mhz across all cores. This is temperature agnostic. CPU can be at 60c and still do this. So I bumped the multiplier up to 4200mhz and same deal. Once all cores are under load be it synthetic or in a game the CPU downclocks to 3600mhz...

    Anyone know why this is the case and how to stop it from happening?

    Your power limits are possibly set too low. Use ThrottleStop and try setting all power limits to at least 300. These are the boxes I have highlighted in yellow.

    If you are trying to use the Clevo control panel to change speeds then that may also be causing an issue. I found it to be pretty rubbish and kept throttling my CPU down all the time so I removed it and put on an earlier Control panel (ending in 50) this stopped the throttling, but that control panel doesn't allow for any overclocking so you have to do it using 3rd party software or in the BIOS

    The CPU speed is dependant on the power setting chosen in CC, it would not be doing much unless it actually got involved on that side, so make sure you are set to performance in there and it should not interfere.

    Makes no difference what you set it to in the CC, it still messes it up with the latest Control panels. fans are all over the place as are the reported temps, install the older CC and the problems go away but you lose the overclocking software

    The older Dm1 models got trouble with Xtu installed. Now have Clevo integrated XTU services with Clevo CC for DM2/3. No wonder people experience problems. Guaranteed teething problems!! I would avoid the CCC for now(I don't use it at all). Wait until most users experience stability. And this can take time... Some haven't problem with CC and other swimming in problems. Yeah, Avoid use Clevo CC .73 and later versions!!

    Problem with not having some version of CCC installed is that if you put the machine to sleep then wake it up, you lose audio output from the main jack, which requires a reboot to get back. Maybe this isn't the case on newer Clevo machines, but that's what happens on my P770ZM.

    That's why I use the version ending .50. Still gives you the basic CC functionality but without the XTU. I've installed 5 P775DM3's and 1 P870DM2 so far and all have issues using the later CC

    I disable all sleep and hibernation functionality on everything I own, so I am thankful that I don't have to care about that being an issue that affects me. I simply turn computers off when I am done using them.

    I really don't have any use for the Clevo CC bloatware except to change keyboard backlight color. I wish Clevo would make a totally standalone LED control utility. I'm going to see if I can figure out is there is a way to treat it like a portable application just for the LED color controls. I don't really care if the rest of it doesn't work, since I find no value in the other features.

    Actually, my preference would be to have white as the default keyboard LED color. If that were the case, I'd never even entertain the idea of downloading Clevo CC because I would never have any desire to ever change the keyboard backlight color.

    +1. LMK if you figure out a solution. All that I use the CCC for is white KB and lid backlight off since the default blue/green is incredibly tacky.
