What should I set my power limits to? y540

2020-02-05, 23:36 PM

I have a stable undervolt of 

-145.5 - Core
-145.5 - Cache

BD PROCHOT enabled
SpeedStep enabled
PROCHOT 94c enabled

I have seen conflicting advice on power limit settings that I am hoping to clear up.

What is the best power limit to set the latptop to? I get high temps from gaming.

Yakuza Kiwami 2 while i often see temps of 85c it does go up to 90c very frequently and see spikes to 94c (Where PROCHOT 94c is enabled) GPU sticks to around 79-80c.

Bottom of the laptop gets hot enough to where it could probably burn skin if contact was applied long enough.

Thank you for any help!

Hi dontdropthesoap,

 

Thanks for reaching out.

 

There is no set standard for undervolting since you would have to find your preferred ground on this.

 

I was able to find a similar article which could help you decide where to start.

 

 

Hope this helps,

Jack_Lenovo1

That thread doesn't discuss power limits.
