    In that case you will need to work on the actual hardware to correct the problem unless you are OK with lowering performance as a work-around band-aid solution. What you are experiencing is typical behavior for an X170 with no thermal mitigation steps taken.

    Turbo is still enabled. Just no overclocking. I got mine to run for benchmarking at 5.0 all core. I could run games that way, but it was in the mid to high 80s. It’ll take a little work to get it under control, but Mr. Fox is giving some of the best advise that’ll help you. ;)

    Where did you buy it?

    If you are not modding anything it should not affect your warranty. But, I'd start with using a superior thermal compound, like Phobya NanoGrease Extreme, if it has whatever the seller chose to use on it. Make sure all of the screws are snug (not super tight) and the most obvious things. If you are running full turbo in the 80's now then it sounds like your undervolt wasn't being applied correctly and that is already a major improvement.

    The PremaMod BIOS should already have an undervolt built-in and should run cooler without touching any settings, just using @Prema default settings. He has also removed the throttling crap that would occur with the stock BIOS, and that requires no special settings. So, touching nothing it will run cooler and faster than it did with the stock Clevo BIOS. One of the goals of developing it is having a BIOS that just works right and performs better even for the noobs that are never going to touch anything.

    You don't necessarily need to change anything in the settings, but the beauty is that you can now. You can set XMP or use custom memory settings now... but, couldn't with the stock BIOS.
