    I wanted to talk about and confirm some things Ive read on the notebooks using the mx150.

    First, is the ~74 degree temp lock STILL in place on the ux430un and HP envy 13t? (not sure if the 720s has it)
    If so, has there been any sort of workarounds for this? Software or hardware wise? It seems to me that there should be some way for this to be changed or removed. Although I am admittedly pretty ignorant to pc this stuff, if people can hack into the nsa, I figure someone should be able to unlock a bios(?) setting.

    If its totally not possible to fix via software, where is the temp taken? Is it internal gpu/cpu thermometer? I found this thread, which seems to be someone fixing the exact issue in a different model, could we not replicate it?
    https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?64295-G551JW-GPU-throttle-at-74-degree-celsius

    Second, does "throttlestop" work at all to fix it?

    Second, if there really is no fix, would it be better the get the normal mx150 and try to compete with the temp lock, or buy a notebook with the under clocked mx150 (720s) and try to squeeze more out of it?

    We finally have an ultrabook that can game (somewhat), its so frustrating to be denied by something so simple. The person who fixes this would literally be famous, on the forums at least. Thanks

    ThrottleStop is a tool for Intel CPUs. It does not have any features to manipulate Nvidia GPUs. What you can do with ThrottleStop is use it to under volt your CPU Core and CPU Cache. This will help reduce the CPU core temperature which should provide a little more temperature headroom for your GPU. Nice looking laptop but a 74°C GPU temperature limit would be an instant deal breaker for me.

    You could try undervolting MX150 using MSI Afterburner's Ctrl+F voltage curve editor and save it as a profile.
    Follow @unclewebb advice to undervolt CPU too and uncheck BD PROCHOT which will reduce the triggering of Throttling alg based on tSkin temps using DPTF.

    Quick question do your HP Envy comes with HP coolsense? If so then thats the problem. It causes your laptop to throttle when it reaches temps around 70-80C when its on. You can disable or uninstall it and it should be fixed. Worst case scenario that its something in the BIOS set by HP causing it which i would suggest for you to return that laptop
