    I was always under the impression that SpeedShift is a good thing since it allows the CPU to enter the Turbo State/Frequency faster with no lag. So why does MSI disable SpeedShift by default in their BIOS?

    This was both on my previous MSI GT73VR Titan Pro and my current MSI GT75 Titan 8RG?

    Probably because MSI prefer re-use/hate making changes how their bios should work. See.. Old habits.

    But why so upset? Why not run Max speed 24/7/365.

    Because I don't need to be running @ 4.4+ GHz when watching TooTube [​IMG]

    I know you still hate it but best to run Throttlestop 8.70 then.
    You can enable speed shift in throttlestop and set the exact CPU multiplier range speedshift will use (From 8 to highest turbo ratio; note that the CPU multiplier setting in FIVR window will not exceed the speed shift maximum multiplier ratio!), then set SST (Green) values from 0 (full speed all the time) to 255 (maximum power savings...800 mhz CPU clock unless running at >medium load). 128 is default and balanced.

    Another thing:
    You can set minimum and maximum speedshift ratio to the exact same value in Throttlestop, to lock the CPU to an exact multiplier. like 8,8=800 mhz at all times.

    You paid $600 for that unlocked i9 BGA CIGAR - lUvxz.gif Or better say you could have saved $600[​IMG]
    You could even put up one profile with crippled clock speed bruh:biggrin:And one for fun:vbthumbsup:And still have two you could play with.

    Was your issue with throttlestop the task scheduler or disappearing icon bug?
    Pretty sure the icon bug is fixed now.

    I do not trust a programmer who cannot get a simple freakin' button to have a task added so it would startup automatically upon startup neither do I trust a programmer who is so involved and dedicated in developing an awesome app which it is, but cannot get an icon to properly show in the taskbar. It was a hit or miss. Not getting that thing near my system in any way, shape, or form. BIOS overclocking FTW.

    I have always had the icon where I want it:) And I put 51x in bios and put what I want in TS. You can have both, bruh.
