Intel XTU cannot maintain my settings and reverts to unlimited - very scary!

Although Intel XTU had retained my custom tuning Profile, my Monitoring setup, and my Ratio/Voltage Tuning Mode as Per Core; both Turbo Boost Short Power Max, and Turbo Boost Power Max defaulted to Unlimited with Turbo Boost Time Window maxed at 8 seconds!!!   This  has happened before but I just happened to check Intel XTU and corrected the Core Active Settings.   Intel XTU is only suitable for a constantly monitored hard core gaming computer.   

 

Intel Extreme Tuning Utility, is Unreliable for a home desktop computer  I will try the same tuning using the UEFI-BIOS.

Hello kodo_nosaki,  

  


Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.   

  


In order to better assist you, please provide the following:  


  


1. Run the Intel® System Support Utility (Intel® SSU) to gather more details about the system.  


· Download the Intel® SSU and save the application on your computer:   https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/Intel-System-Support-Utility-for-Windows-


· Open the application, check the "Everything" checkbox, and click "Scan" to see the system and device information. The Intel® SSU defaults to the "Summary View" on the output screen following the scan. Click the menu where it says "Summary" to change to "Detailed View".  


· To save your scan, click Next and click Save.  


  

2. Have you tried to reinstall the Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel® XTU)?
