-Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 4GB

-8GB RAM

Re: Lowest voltage needed on Legion y520

I think that you can not do something like that with such processor .. there is no tool for that for the HQ CPU .. that's what I know
I think it has to be a K model ..
let's wait for an expert to reply with a detailed answer
I have the Y520 but with i7 7700HQ and I couldn't find any app that can even just monitor the CPU temperature ..

Hi, we have the same specs and I just wanna share that I use ThrottleStop for CPU undervolting while MSI Afterburner for GPU.

I´ve undervolt my y520 7300HQ with XTU to "-120" and it works great. It goes no over 2Ghz. Also you can go to energyoptions und set the prozessor to 98-99% so the Turbo-Boost goes off! The best thing is that you ylean you guy. open it and clean the dust. Take a look from behind into the y520 and take a look that the dust is out.
