Hi, is some way to undervoltage Intel i76820HQ in Intel XTU SW?
I have HP zbook G3 15 with this CPU and temperature on one core of CPU is in Prime 95 (but in game too, sometimes) 100 °C
Now I can control only Turbo boost issues and voltage is grey.
I check the compatibility list of these SW and it support i7-6820HK but not my CPU i7-6820HQ.
Thank you for your time guys!
PS: I repaste whole notebook, but with sh*** past... however Thermal Grizzl Kryonaut is on my way
XTU does not support your processor. Only X and K processors are supported.
And, you should not be attermpting to undervolt your laptop:
This is not true
I had a laptop with a core i7 HQ variant and i undervolted my cpu by 0.65 mv and i got around 10 degrees lower temps
The undervolting security issue will not affect the user since it requires physical access to the cpu.
There is no problem with cpu undervolting , you get better FPS in games and it avoid burning your laptop due to high temps. It prolong laptop life and its also quieter. I used that undervolted cpu for around 4 years every day , 0 Issues
As Al mentioned (albeit much too tersely), once the microcode update carried in the BIOS gets Intel's latest updates, support for undervolting will stop working. This is Intel's mitigation for the Plundervolt! issue (see here: Plundervolt! A new Intel Processor ‘undervolting’ Vulnerability). It was the only answer Intel was able to come up with. Good or bad, Intel's commitment to security requires that they proceed with mitigation, even if they don't like it.
