    You're 100% sure that your undervolt works without touching Cache settings?

    As far as I know CPU core and CPU cache goes together as recommended.
    Have a bit more reading here if it helps: https://www.ultrabookreview.com/31385-the-throttlestop-guide/

    Well, if i undervolt too much the system becomes unstable (i mean if undervolt only cpu, without touching cache), so that means it's working, correct?

    I can do some tests later with cache as well, but whenever i touch cache system becomes even more unstable so i would have to use smaller values.

    But thanks for the idea, i will do some testing

    I have not had much feedback from users with 10th Gen processors. Intel might have changed something so the core and cache offset voltages are totally independent now. Intel CPUs used to be like that. My 4th Gen Haswell has independent voltages. No need to adjust Haswell core and cache voltages in sync.

    That is the best way to prove it. If you can adjust only the core or only the cache voltage and the CPU becomes unstable, the core and cache voltages must be working independently.

    You could use less undervolt and instead put equal settings for Cpu and Cashe. Go stepwise up with undervolt. Thanks for testing.

    I just tried downloading and running the program, then I got this error message:
    "The code execution cannot proceed because mfc120u.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem."

    I don't see that particular .dll file in the zip file. Am I missing something?

    @GooPuddles - Scroll to the top of this page, enter mfc120u.dll into the Search... box at the top right, check the option, Search this thread only and then click on the orange Search button.

    It only took me a few seconds to find a relevant post by @Kers
    http://forum.notebookreview.com/threads/the-throttlestop-guide.531329/page-969#post-10856200

    Edit - I entered mfc120u.dll and ThrottleStop into Google. It was even quicker finding the info this way. Maybe this is a test to see if you should be using this program or not. :p

    I probably shouldn't! I just bought a laptop and read that this is a program to make sure the new laptop's thermals are okay. I'm certainly not going to overclock.

    @unclewebb I tested new uCode for Skylake D6 and TS 8.72 and performance seems to have improved for highly threaded tasks. I'm just seeing 0.3ms hit in TS bench as opposed to D4 uCode which had 0.8ms difference compared to CC uCode.
    And good news is, undervolt is working w/o any issues. But, I think 125mV undervolt is the max now.
