CPU I7 10750H Throttling on low temperatures.

Hello,

I am having problems with my I7 10750H processor. I currently am using a MSI GS75, which is a laptop. Normally this CPU model can go up to 100 degrees celcius, however it has been throttling lately in the low 70's. If anyone could help me, it would be much appreciated. 

Thank you!

Are you running only on battery?

Oh, and here is a picture I took, might help (even if I know XTU only supports K CPUs).

Ah, the plot thickens.  All bets are off if you are using XTU on an unsupported processor.

Well, no other software gives this much information about my processor as XTU does, so I just happen to use it.

Let's not unnecessarily rathole this discussion. Using XTU has absolutely nothing to do with the problem.
Seeing throttling at lower temperature levels is an indication that the processor is being throttled for another reason.
This could be occuring because an external entity on the motherboard is asserting PROCHOT signal to request processor throttling. For example (but not only possibility), the VRM could be signaling that the VR circuitry is overheating.
This could also occur because of an internal issue. For example (again not only possibility), it could be occurring because too much voltage is being requested by the processor.
To determine which is occurring, try using an app like ThrottleStop.
Hope this helps,

Hello and thank you for your answer. I have been using multiple monitoring softwares such as: Dragon Center, XTU, ThrottleStop, and afterburner, because some happen just to stop working sometimes (I don't know why haha). Yesterday, in Throttlestop, I disabled BD PROCHOT, Speedstep and C1E and I have seen a very minor improvment, but it still throttles. Oh and, I have applied a -1.25w undervoltage because this 10th gen CPU happens to become very hot, very quickly under moderate load, I don't know if this helps.

Last thing I will add, is that when the CPU throttles, I see on Throttlestop's interface BD PRO, written in red.

Hello and thank you for your answer. The computer seems to have fixed itself, however I hope that nothing will happen in the future, because I've got to say, playing every game with 3 FPS is far from enjoyable :).
