    8750H is a locked CPU. That is why you can't do anything with it in AWCC.

    As said above, you are going to have to use XTU or TS. If you have the 8750HK then you should be able to uv, OC.

    I use
    AWCC for fan/RGB
    Xtu and Afterburner

    And there is absolutely no problem using the 3 together
    Also there is a power management tab in AWCC and you can control whatever you want there thats causing issue

    Honestly in the first year. I'm probably just going to use AWCC to undervolt the cpu a bit to keep temps nice and cool. I am quite a noob when it comes to PCs. Maybe down the line I will mess with Afterburner and other programs for further tweeks. but out of the box performance is more than adequate for the included 144hz 1080p screen. But I will use Afterburner to check temps and fps, also might switch to OC2 and performance fans for more demanding games this year. Next year I'll tweak a bit (9700k/2080)

    You can use Command Center just fine without Overclock Controls. They install separate.

    The trick is tu uninstall Overclock Controls. Install your replacement app, then reinstall OC and disable it. This is so you can still use fan profiles if you wish

    On a random side note. You had mentioned somewhere that creative ready drivers are not good for gaming or something along those lines.

    There's been this same debate with Quadro drivers forever and the general result is...they perform almost identical (Quadro Performance Drivers vs Game Ready vs Creator Ready)



    I'm going to be using creator ready for now. However when new games come out I'm 99% certain Game Ready Drivers will come out awhile faster than Creator Ready.

    Hope this helps others too.

    This is exactly what I do.

    That did not work when I tried it originally. For some reason my Throttlestop settings would not take until I removed OC features completely. Installing them after had no conflict though.

    The problem with the AWCC power management tab is it lists my 3 profiles, Balanced, power saver, and high performance but how do you actually make that plan active? there is no radio button to select.
