Hello dear people,

I am facing an issue and would like to receive help

I would like to undervolt my Intel CPU using Intel XTU, but whenever I open the program I get this notification :

I have done the following things prior to posting this question :
1. completely uninstalled the app and re-installed.
2. disabled Core isolation (memory integrity)
3. updated my bios to latest from manufacture website
4. updated all drivers (except Nvidia driver)
5. made sure that there are no conflicting programs that affect voltage of CPU
6. Turned OFF Hyper-v AND Virtual machine platform.
7. Collected system info + logs (everything) which I included in the attachments

PC specs :
Motherboard : Msi Z690 Tomohwak DDR4
CPU : Intel 12700k (STOCK configuration, no overclock)
Ram : 16GB
OS : Windows 11 64bit


Best regards.

Hello,

I would like to thank you for taking time to try and solve this, but I already did find the solution

I had to disable virtualization in BIOS in order to have XTU work.

But, I have a small question, does the values set by XTU still be applied when the application (XTU) not running in tray ? When I restart pc it does not start with windows, so values still apply or do I have to have the app running all times ?

Hello, @SaltyxTomato  

 

Thank you for your time. 

 

Could you please confirm if Undervolt protection is enabled in BIOS? If you need assistance checking on this, contact your System Manufacturer


Regarding your inquiry, you can create a profile to save your settings: How to Create, Save, and Load Profiles in the Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel® XTU)
