Re: Yoga 730 CPU clock speed stuck at around 0.800 GHz when gaming, help!

Hello,

 

I recently used throttlestop to disable my turbo boost, and it has completely fixed the problem. I then undervolted the CPU and GPU to help with temperature problems (as it would run around 85-87 degrees during gameplay), I still had problems with the high temperatures after, so purchased a cooling pad. This virtually did nothing and my CPU temperatures are still around 82 degrees. I am worried this is a bit hot as I am planning on having this laptop for atleast 3ish years. I was wondering if you knew of any way to cool it down further. Also, any idea if undervolting my laptop/ disabling power boost using throttlestop will void my warranty?


I was told recently to try removing the battery and playing only on ac power.  This bypasses the charging function and sometimes lowers board temps.  I haven't tried it yet but you could give a shot too if you like.  I noticed that my unit runs hot when on AC power but not when on battery power.  Maybe removing the act of charging will help lower temperatures.  It's worth a shot.

Maybe DM'ing @lenovosupport on Twitter will help get this resolved. I sent them a message about this, and linked to this thread and got the following reply

 

We will forward it to the concerned team, so they can look into it and provide a BIOS update soon. Mac_Lenovo

 

I'm a little sceptical they will actually do this, but maybe if enough people do, they will

Copy pasted from my reply to a similar thread:

 

Just wanted to pass a link along:

 

https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Yoga-730-15Ikb-gtx-1050-gaming-FIX/td-p/4275245

 

I was having some pretty bad throttling issues, but then followed the CPU related steps in the link above. The framerate gains have been huge. Apparently the laptop will throttle CPU power way down on a sustained load, which is why performance tanks after a short while. The CPU steps above remove that throttle and allow it to perform reasonably well for sustained periods of time.

 

I haven't tried the GPU steps yet...

How did you undervolt the GPU? I can't seem to enable the options in MSI Afterburner.
