    "Max Processor State" removed from Processor Power Management


    Hi,
    My computer has issues with overclocking and overheating and I had found that the most reliable fix was to lower the max processor state to something more manageable (100% to 80%, etc). However, the option to do this in "power plan" settings has been removed somehow, perhaps in a recent update. In addition, a fix I found online meant to add the option back doesn't work for me (there is a forum post here with this same fix and another option, which also didn't work): Add/Remove "Max Processor State" (Laptop Overheating Fix) - YouTube
    I'm assuming there is a recent update that changed this, but even on the video I linked people say the fix worked more recently, so perhaps that's not the case. Is there another way to get "max processor state" setting back? Alternatively, is there a different way that I can change the same or a similar setting? This is very frustrating especially since the setting was there for me and now disappeared seemingly for no reason
    Thanks.

    :)

  2. processor power management optimization

    ive been playing around with the processor power management options for quite a while already since i noticed that my old notebook's cpu (i7-720qm) struggles with running on full power (mainly due to heat i assume).

    i already managed to optimize performance quite noticeably, but some of the settings are not fully clear to me resp. their default settings are quite confusing, even contradicting to their descriptions.

    so if there is somebody familiar with processor power management - ie. idle and performance states and their respective settings, some explanations and recommendations would be highly appreciated.

    my main aim is to make the cpu run on as few cores/threads possible, clocked as high as possible, before unparking additional cores/threads. ie. to be highly responsive for just a few tasks rather than manage multiple tasks simultaneously, and not getting
    throttled because too many threads get unparked although just a few - but clocked high - would manage it better. mainly because most of my tasks much more require few but high clocked threads than more parallel processing.

    here are the settings i have set currently:

    processor performance increase threshold - 30%

    processor performance core parking min cores - 13%

    processor performance decrease threshold - 20%

    processor performance core parking concurrency threshold - 95%

    processor energy performance preference policy - 20%

    allow throttle states - off

    processor performance decrease policy - ideal

    processor performance core parking parked performance state - no preference

    processor performance boost policy - 100%

    processor performance increase policy ideal - aggressive

    processor idle demote threshold - 30%

    processor performance core parking distribution threshold - 90%

    processor duty cycling - disabled

    processor idle disable enable - idle

    processor performance core parking decrease threshold - 60%

    processor performance core parking decrease policy - ideal

    processor idle promote threshold - 50%

    minimum processor state - 50%

    processor performance autonomous mode - enabled

    processor performance core parking overutilization threshold - 80%

    system cooling policy - active

    processor performance core parking core override - disabled

    maximum processor state - 100%

    processor performance boost mode - aggressive

    processor performance core parking increase policy - ideal

    processor performance core parking increase threshold - 80%

    processor performance core parking utility distribution - disabled

    processor performance core parking max cores - 100%

    what confuses me a bit are the default settings in power saver & high performance profiles of

    processor idle demote threshold - ps: 20% / hp: 40%

    processor idle promote threshold - ps: 40% / hp: 60%

    judging from their descriptions, i would actually suggest them being exactly opposite?!

    any suggestions on these two options resp. how to optimize the power settings better to achieve what i explained above - as few cores/threads unparked as possible, clocked as high as possible, before unparking more, without capping
    min/max states or preventing threads from parking/unparking completely?

    thanks

    Processor Power Management isn't there

    Hello! I have a laptop and i find that the fan is constantly on, and the sound is unbearably loud. I checked various YouTube tutorials and some suggested reducing the CPU's power consumption percentage in the processor power management area (after clicking
    advanced power settings). When I click advanced power settings, there is no section titled processor power management. is there a way to reduce the CPU's power consumption percentage, and why cant I find the processor power management section?

    Thanks in advance "Max Processor State" removed from Processor Power Management :)

    Processor Power Managment

    Honestly, I have seen more systems bricked by users changing settings on their processor, modern processors ans associated software are very good at managing the processor without user intervention.

    When your system is idle your processor will barely be ticking over and when you are performing processor intensive tasks like video rendering, your processor will boost to 120% of its max rated power

    Have a read about
    SpeedStep
    and
    TurboBoost
