    Brother @cope123abc had gone with one of those waterblocks for his p870. Might be an interesting read.

    Hi guys !
    I'm back, finally received my laptop and ready to do some tests on it.
    I already started a stress test with XTU at stock settings and it's power throttling pretty much instantly. Temps are looking really good, but there's a power throttle that just appear right after I click the stress test button, do you know why and how I can change that ?
    It seems like PCSpecialist already made some sort of custom profile on XTU, and it seems like I have to mess with the Turbo Boost function, but I'm not sure about this.

    Here is a screenshot of my current stock settings.
    I'm starting at around 4.5 Ghz and quickly going down to 3.2 because of the power throttle. Keep in mind that it happens almost immediatly after I click the stress test button, which is odd to me.

    Would love your insight on this guys !
    Thanks a lot :)

    Power Limit getting triggered, raise your PL1 to something like 200000 and PL2 to 250000.

    Could you tell me exactly which parameter it refers to on the screenshot ?
    I'm pretty new to this so I don't want to **** this up.
    Most importantly, is it safe to do so ?

    Thanks !

    What cpu is this? Higher power limit will allow it to boost to a higher frequency either until it spends the power budget or throttles due to VR/Thermals. You can expect higher temperatures.

    It's an i9-9900K.
    I'm trying to find the right balance between temps and performance, but didn't expect the PL there.
    Should I raise both PLs little by little or just push it all the way up (to the values you recommended) ? Can you confirm this is a safe operation ? My warranty is on the line here haha, sorry if I worry too much, just wanna make sure.

    Your PL is set to 100W/165W. You can set it to 150W/200W and see how the temperatures react.
    I'd also recommend you increase your undervolt, it's at -50mV currently. You should be able to push this further and test stability.

    Continue undervolting by -10mV until you run into instability with the benchmark. Keeping final undervolt at 10mV above the point when it got unstable.

    Also, make sure you are using fn+1, max fans while benchmarking/stress testing.

    not gonna lie. I learned the FN+1 feature literally last night. I love it. I thought my laptop was just messed up or something as I couldn’t get fan boost to work previously. I was pressing FN+F1 all this time like a doofis. I really don’t need any fan control software now. FN+1 is all I need.

    It's simple and it works.
