Throttlestop Guide

Guide Overview


  • Throttlestop is a great program made for Windows.Usually this program is used for power-saving or lowing CPU temperature.This is a special guide and will teach you the opposite of what Throttlestop is made for.
  • Expect higher temperatures but also higher FPS,lower latency and more performance overall.
  • Follow this guide and you will destroy your old benchmark scores!

What will you achieve with this guide?

  • Higher temperatures
  • A boost in FPS
  • Lower latency
  • Higher benchmark scores
  • Higher power consumption

Who is this guide for?

  • Anyone with a locked BIOS
  • Laptop users,mostly

Quick Tips

Make sure:

  • your laptop is above the surface
  • your internal fans aren’t blowing the hot air back into the device
  • your dust filter doesn’t stop the air from coming in or out
  • your fans’ speed is high (Notebook Fan Control,TPFanControl may help)
  • your ambient temperature is low

About Throttlestop

  • ThrottleStop is a small application designed to monitor for and correct the three main types of CPU throttling that are being used on many laptop computers.
  •  ThrottleStop is an original program by Kevin Glynn, a.k.a. “UncleWebb”, which in simple terms is designed to counteract the three main types of CPU throttling (Thermal, Power Limit, and VRM) present in modern computers.
  • It started as a simple means to counteract some throttling mechanisms used in older laptops, check temperatures, and change CPU clock speeds. Initially much simpler and more limited than Intel’s Extreme Tuning Utility (XTU), ThrottleStop has grown in feature-set and stability over the years, and can be used for undervolting, “set-and-forget” temperature/clockspeed profiles, benchmarking, SST tweaking, and temperature monitoring.
  • ThrottleStop originally started out as a simple tool to reverse some of the throttling schemes used in a variety of laptops.


  • These tweaks will increase your temperature significantly

  • The left side of ThrottleStop contains a variety of options which can be used to bypass CPU throttling and on the right side is a Monitoring panel that shows you the current state of each thread on your CPU.
  • Some laptops are using clock modulation and multiplier reductions to lower the performance and power consumption of your computer. This is done deliberately to either allow your computer to run cooler or to allow your laptop to operate with a power adapter that is not sufficient to fully power your laptop and recharge its battery at the same time.


Clock Modulation -> 100%
100% means the CPU won’t throttle under 100% of its speed

 Set Multiplier -> Maximum value
 The value multiplied by 10 will be the CPU’s frequency

 Speed Shift – EPP -> 0
 This value controls the cpu performance. 0 for maximum performance,255 for minimum  performance.

 SpeedStep -> Disable
 This does the same thing as Speed Shift but is for older CPU generations

 C1E -> Disable
 This is a power saving feature.Not needed for gaming

 BD PROCHOT -> Disable
 This is the last emergency action done by the CPU,means it will shut down at 100C+.

throttlestop settings guide


 Start Minimized -> Enabled

Minimize on Close -> Enabled

Table Grid Lines -> Disabled

Nvidia GPU/AMD GPU -> Enabled


If your laptops has the PROCHOT to 95 or 96 put 2,this should raise the limit to 98 which won’t go to 100C so you won’t risk your laptop to be shut down if that’s the case.

AC Timer Res -> 0

Timer resolution,lowest value means maximum performance

undervolt performance


Non Turbo Ratio -> Maximum value

Turbo Ratio Limits -> Maximum values

CPU Core Offset Voltage

Before setting this research what values other people used for the same CPU as yours.

For example: Search “Undervolt i7 7500U” and put the same value as someone else did,test,and then go lower or higher

CPU Cache Offset Voltage

Do the same thing as above


ICCMax -> Maximum Value

This value increases the stability of the system. (change ICCMax only for CPU Core and CPU Cache).

System Agent -> between 0 and -20

By undervolting this you risk less stability when undervolting.

Intel GPU

This value too should be equal to System Agent Offset Voltage.

iGPU Unslice

This value too should be equal to System Agent Offset Voltage.

Disable and Lock Turbo Power Limits -> Check

This disables your CPU’s power limits (very useful).

Cache Ratio -> Maximum Values (min and max)

This doesn’t increase much performance but your CPU will overheat from this.

Not recommended.

Save voltages immediately -> Check

Don’t be afraid of BSODs,ThrottleStop won’t start with faulty values.

Uncheck every “Clamp” and every “Lock”

Put “99999999” to every box on the right.

PP0 Power Limit -> Uncheck


Speed Shift-> Maximum Value (999999,not 45 as you see in the picture)


Power Limit 3 -> Uncheck

Intel Power Balance -> Check 

 Put maximum value for CPU and minimum for GPU

change c states laptop


Request -> C1

Uncheck every other checkbox

  • Here you can check if your CPU has any limits on.

Keep Throttlestop always open in background.
