    Hi there! I installed in run cinebench 15 x64 and run 3 loop with 20 repetitions of the multi CPU reindering:

    You will find the folders with the files log files of cinebench and throttlestop under the folowing link: https://1drv.ms/f/s!An6sVWggT749irpKxT-_5y7kYdjUvg

    Room temperature was 23,5°C:

    1.) First loop (-89,8 mV on core cache and gpu) with multiple small tray apps runing and with direct sun shining on the back of the SFB2. Consequently the performance drops from 556p in irst run to 488 points in last run. Temps averaged around 70°C, Multi average ~23.

    2.) Second loop (-94.7 mV on core cache and gpu) with most tray apps closed and no direct sun light on the back of the SFB2.
    The performance dropped less: 547p in first run to 506p in last run with jumps back to 517. Temps ~ 73°C, Multi average ~24.

    Before the third run I did some more finetuning:
    I lowered the Voltage once more and
    upped the turbo time limit and
    adjusted Intel Power Balance to CPU 25 and GPU 5.
    This gave me an amazing result:

    3.) Thrid run (-99.6 mV on core cache and gpu) with most tray apps closed and no direct sun light on the back of the SFB2.
    The SFB2 perfirmed almost consistent throughout all 20 runs (max 550 min 533) and averaged at 543p. Temps ~73°C, Multi average ~25.

    Conclusion: Thx to your question I found out how to optimize the performance of my machine!

    Best regards

    Can you provide a screenshot of your Throttlestop settings for the successful run?

    A little setback... -99.6 mV seemed to be to optimistic. I experienced a bluescreen with this settings in a certain situation. So I reverted to -94.7 mV.

    I can upload the screenshots later on.

    Best regards

    Do you have coil whine? If yes, how bad is it?

    After readjusting the Voltage, I did a fourth run (added it to the folder under the downloadlink above) and found out that those few milivolts more did no harm:

    Room termperature 21°C / average score over 20 runs 554 (mas 558, min 554) / average temp: 74°C max temp: 86°C

    Best regards

    @wynand32: You will find the screenshots under the downloadlink above

    @ThePerfectStorm: Yes I have a coil whine, if th SFB2 is plugged in and energy settings at "best performance", yet it does not annoy me all that much. Perhaps I am not that sensitive in this regard. I have no problem with the so callef "filco ping" on certain keyboards as well. I think the problem is that those sounds gets louder, the more you pay attention. Saying this I damitt, that I really hate it if something in my car rattles/clatters ^^
