    No I have a 1510 lol

    I am also undervolted around the same as you. I'm not 100% sure everything he did but you can contact him on discord I gave his tag in my last post. I know he used throttlestop and techpowerupgpu-z to check things. most of it was in the computers settings. Don't remember it all was a few weeks ago.

    You can set it up so throttlestop starts up everytime your computer starts and when you close/minimize the app it will still run in the background. I did this using a youtube video.

    @BrinNutz hey I just reinstalled Windows last night. This is the driver it automatically installed for me. Tested Deus Ex MD and you know what? No more clock speed drop! It stayed around 1800mhz all time!
    I haven't touched any driver settings or power management mode. The only thing that is I haven't installed CCC just yet.
    Oh, and if you notice, the driver installed by Windows only has 2 things in Programs and Features, as pointed out by my red arrow. I remember when you install from Nvidia it has like 4 or 5 things in there.

    So yeah... I'm pretty sure it's a driver problem. But I'm not sure if it could be CCC also? Can you please get this driver version from Nvidia and confirm for me? (remember to clean install to clear settings)

    http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/pa70hs-g-pa71hs-g-and-hp6-g-are-locked-to-1468mhz.812533/

    Must be driver limits.

    the locking happens when the power draw exceeds 120watt, while the temperature is higher than ~74C. if you find a way to lock the card at 120watt - this throttling disappears.

    strangely the vbios on these machines is rated at 125w, while the system bios is locked at 120!
