    This makes sense what you say, I'm inclined to think it's for the reasons you listed rather than to safeguard against any future degredation - that would also fit in better with my experience with undervolts & overclocks remaining stable for multiple years (ie no degredation).

    I just love how @unclewebb keeps making ThrottleStop better and better. Too bad we can't say the same thing about what Micro$loth does with Windows.

    :vbthumbsup: for the special Fox Tornado version of ThrottleStop. That should look good in the next TS video you do.

    I enjoyed the recent Windows 10 clean up project you posted. Highly recommended.

    Yes, it will look amazing. I'm going to have to do another one pretty soon and that will make it all the nicer.

    @Mr. Fox & @unclewebb : Did TS become open-source or is it photo-shopped?
    Mr. Fox have you tried tweaking No. of threads to 12/16/24 to get a bump in scores OR 100% stress test tool for CPU OC.

    No and no. @Mr. Fox has been a long time supporter of ThrottleStop and I have always appreciated his helpful videos so I decided to create a special version of ThrottleStop for him. Anyone with over 17,000 rep points on NBR deserves some recognition. He has also helped guide TS development, making sure it doesn't become a big, bloated mess like some programs and operating systems have become.

    It's always a pleasure supporting you and a product as awesome as ThrottleStop. There are a few heroes in my overclocking world, and you're one of the few, bro. You're in good company with @Prema, @Mumak, @svl7 and @Johnksss@iBUYPOWER on my list of Rock Stars.

    Hey guys i have a question please.
    i've been having my laptop stable with undervolt -110 or -115.. everything ok.. then i started lately to play with my gpu overclocked ( +170-200 mhz on the core) and i've been experiencing randomly some system crash but not graphic driver crashing.. but rather my system rebooting like when it happened when i had undervolt pushed too hard.. now the question is.. do i have to reduce my undervolt when i'm overclocking my GPU even if it has nothing to do with the cpu? like if the cpu needs more power when i overclock my gpu? or could it be possible that the system reboot while gaming is just related to my card being overclocked too much? in that case i would expect a driver video crash.. rather than a reboot? right?
    thank you!

    Maybe your CPU gets hotter when gaming due to the GPU being stressed too - thereby perhaps creating a unstable undervolt due to increased temperatures. Or maybe the increased overall power usage of the notebook somehow decreases the 'cleanliness' of the power going to the CPU - thereby creating an unstable undervolt. You could always try reducing your undervolt when gaming to see if it still crashes - if it doesn't then you've got your answer.
