    I have to admit.. I really really reeaallyy REALLY specialist on how to search... :rolleyes: it is the reason why my laptop is begging to me to stop :D
    I will always squeeze more performance.. squeeze hard.. soo hard that my laptop will tell me [Leave me alone you control freak!!] :p

    Just give me some time.. I will show or give a hint to Intel how CPU will look like to be optimized from all way around ;) :cool:
    Watch my name... https://hwbot.org/hardware/processor/core_i7_6700hq/ :cool::D
    Right now I'm leading on RAM in general , CPU Freq. and Reference Frequency...and more will come:cool:

    I'm not showing off (you might say that) but... I'm just trying to say that if you really know what you are doing.. you will always find someway to surpass the hard limit ... always! :)

    This laptop is with me for 2 years (closing to 3 years) now and I still find something new every other day.. Intel CPUs are really full of secrets.. you just need patience & to know how to solve the puzzle ;)


    by the way....

    I love this.. is that a feature was on TS long time ago? or you just added this feature recently? anyway.. I love it :)

    It remembers numbers the last time you used ICCMAX. If you want to get back to default.. just double click and if you want to go to what you choosed before.. also just double click on the sliders :)
    Thanks @unclewebb ! :)

    First check your Windows Power Settings (The hidden ones) and second.. check your drivers :)

    I'll play around with the overclocking a bit more tonight.

    Thanks for the pastebin suggestion, here's a link: https://pastebin.com/ktnp8yZt

    The 100C was during the max heat prime95 test, so not shocked there. Temps were relatively reasonable during the Skyrim run (6:29:30 onward). I'm actually pretty surprised at how good the thermal management is in this thing, which makes the throttling even more ridiculous. I have done a repaste, so that could be part of it.

    Yes i restart the HWINFO after i set the Turbo Boost Limits. I just tried the TS Bench now, with both 20W / 25W and 40W but my PKG Power is nearly always around 24W. Looks like its locked. Later i will try to change it with XTU

    You are not the only one. My GS73VR after a clean Windows 10 install can only get Package C state C2. Core C state can always reach C7 though. After installing Intel AHCI driver, it reaches package C3. I think we should start a thread in MSI forum to see if anyone can get MSI laptop into package C6. Feels like something wrong with BIOS.

    Just enabled my GS73VR Speedshift in BIOS. Now Windows 10 can control EPP value using the power mode slider. Is there any reason to use TS to control EPP besides manually setting it ?

    Well @unclewebb, looks like the overclock is no dice...still doesn't break the 4GHz barrier. =/

    I don't know if this happens on every laptop. But in my case, changing power plan by using slider not only controls speedshift value, but also package power and multipliers. I'd rather let throttlestop control those settings.

    Not sure but I thought EPP value affects package power and multipliers? Just did a quick TS Bench with 3 modes when charging and 4 modes using battery. The CPU reaches the max boost and package power in all except better battery and battery saver.

    @unclewebb I just checked the (i5-8250U) Turbo Boost Power Max and the Turbo Boost Short Power Max settings with XTU and if i set it from the default 25/44W to for example 20/40W the HWINFO64 can read it correctly. It's looks like the ThrottleStop can't change it from the default
