    @unclewebb Thank you very much for your help.

    I see your point regarding disabling BD_PROCHOT, and i would just leave at that, but unfortunately that only solves half the problem because sometimes the laptop keeps on beeping (like right now...). Disabling BD_PROCHOT fixes the throttling but it can't do anything about the stupid beeps...

    I believe it has something to do with the fans but I can't check it right now.

    Any way, I've followed your suggestions and disabled BD_PROCHOT and enabled SpeedShift (why the hell do vendors disable this by default?). Haven't touched the Clamp option because I don't fully understand what it does, but i'm sure it is answered somewhere on this thread so i'll keep looking.

    I've enabled logs and captured an instance of the issue occurring: https://pastebin.com/5CuT9M9q

    Not sure if something can be conclude by it, I see the processor getting throttled (when the multiplier goes to 4) but not much else. By the way, this was triggered by opening a browser with 10 tabs or so opened, so even though the cpu goes to 100% and the power to 13W-14W it's really not much load. When the multipliers goes back up it's me disabling BD_PROCHOT on Throttle Stop.

    Guess i'll have to open it up and check the fans. If I can't figure it out i'll have to send it back to China which I was trying to avoid.

    Anyway, thanks for your help (and for Throttle Stop).

    Hi unclewebb,
    I have been using throttlestop form earlier versions and this is my favorite software. It is working great with my Lenovo y50 that likes to throttle. I have a problem with the new version of the throttlestop 8.4.8.0.
    Previous versions I can set my cpu to 3.2 ghz but with the obsidian my cpu returns to its stock values and throttle to 2.6ghz. I have tried disabling/enabling BD Prochot anc cant fix the problem cpu temperatures are fine.
    The previous versions works just fine. What am I doing wrong? Please help.

    Did you check limit reasons?
    Did you try checking the overclock box in fivr?

    In newer builds Windows Creators Fall Update, power throttling will be present, then we can never know for certain if a app is throttled by high temps or the OS itself. This happens on battery, I assume and not on AC.

    If you have a recent version I can pay to have it not expring, i'm the first to jump in. ;)

    Is there a easy way for the most recent version to auto-start on windows 10? I thought I read about it from the obsidian guy somewhere, but I cant seem to find a direct option for that on windows 10. Its just a minor detail, I can always just start the program myself, but if there an easy way I'm all ears.

    Probably because your CPU is hitting power limit of 15W, you could undervolt it. Again which is the cpu model?
