    Hi Fernando/UncleWebb

    That would be great if we could PM and discuss this and help to setup throttleshop, I am new to the forum so unsure how to PM you, can you PM please or tell me how.

    As requested by other members and to help you, please find attached pictures of my current settings (including screenshot of Limit Reasons)

    The only game I play Football Manager 2017, will benefit from best single core performance, if that information is useful.

    In addition, the ideal would be to find the optimum point, to give me best single core sustained performance, with the coolest temperature & Heat

    Many thanks, I really do appreciate the help

    One observation. When Speed Shift is enabled, the Set Multiplier function on the main screen does not do anything as far as I know. Same with the Power Saver function on the main screen. Both are obsolete when Speed Shift is enabled.

    On another note, I just read this on the TechPowerUp forum.

    Are you all ready for the end of ThrottleStop? Microsoft might be in a bad mood again. They might be pulling the plug on this wonderful program.

    Edit - It is Windows Insider Preview Build 18342.8 which no longer supports ThrottleStop. If you need your ThrottleStop fix, do not download this version. Hopefully Microsoft gets all soft before the final release of Version 1903 and allows the WinRing0 driver to continue.

    This is totally F***ed up. My ThrottleStop is still functioning because I didn't join the Windows Insider program. I just hope that this STUPID restriction will never make it to an official build update. I liked Windows and Android because it gave it's users the freedom of deep modification and personalization but as it seems they're taking that away from us. I can already imagine myself in my 70s telling my grandchildren how great it was when we actually had the ownership and control of the devices that we paid for. To be honest I kinda could see this coming when I switched from Windows 7 to 8.
    Anyways, I don't know what this means for ThrottleStop and it's future, but I hope someone comes up with a workaround.

    The next official version will be called Windows 10 Version 1903, April 2019 Update. That is only a month away. The 1903 version number stands for the 3rd month of 2019 which is March 2019 which is right NOW! What Microsoft just shipped out on the Insider Preview slow ring is likely very close to what they plan to ship for the April 2019 Update. At this stage, new features are not added. They just work night and day trying to get as many of the bugs out as possible.

    If enough people send feedback to Microsoft, maybe they will change their mind. Realistically, the number of people that need to use a program that uses the 10 year old WinRing0 driver is insignificant to Microsoft. They have wanted to nuke the WinRing0 driver for a long time. At some point it will happen. Maybe it already has.

    It means one thing. Game over. ThrottleStop would be dead. It would free up a lot of time in my life but there would be a lot of unhappy laptop owners. Intel recently blocked Intel XTU from running on the low power ULV processors so things are not looking good.

    And in 2012 I remember reading these same words and thinking: oh sh*t this is going to be ugly..

    7 years later (almost).. Well we'll see what comes ahead.. Hope they don't block Wingring0

    We can still run an older version of XTU, right?
    Sometime ago I tested the latest version and it gave me "unsupported hardware" when I tried to install, but an older version worked just fine.

    Best way to test stability is with Sisoftsandra, go to there website e download free trial version.
    run CPU Benchtest, then pray your system dont shutdown.

    Iwas thinking my i5 8300h was great runing prime95 undervolt - 0.220mv, but i was wrong.
    after trying sisoftsandra CPU bench, system shutdown.
    After that i found that my cpu is stable as -0.120mv .
