    Question regarding PL1 and PL2 readings

    So did a little more testing. Setting the PL1 and PL2 limits in Intel XTU does indeed change both PL1 and PL2 Power Limit numbers in HWINFO. Changing TPL in throttlestop does effect cpu package power readings but does not change PL1 and PL2 power limit readings. I noticed that whatever wattage I...

The fans used to spin on idle and now have higher system temps during idle and load and the bottom of...
