Re: Intel XTU doesnt start

What is your processor model number?

Note that XTU only supports X and K processors.

Re: Intel XTU doesnt start

Thank you for your reponse.

Please find below prcoessor details

I was thinking to under volt this so laptop runs on turbo 2.3GHz (for me its 2.4Ghz) however I wanna over clock CPU and under volt processor so temp remains stable.

 

As Intels XTU doesnt open up. I've tried throttle stop but it doesnt let me under volt my temp.

Re: Intel XTU doesnt start

You have a U processor.  XTU only supports X and K processors.

XTU does not support your processor.

You should uninstalled XTU, and reset your bios to defaults.

Re: Intel XTU doesnt start

You can stay on this thread.  Undervolting is not recommended either.

Re: Intel XTU doesnt start

Thank you for your prompt response and yes I went through the recommendation link.

 

If at all I was to undervolt what can be done for my current processor type and how...Your inputs would be helpful.

Re: Intel XTU doesnt start

Personally, with as old as your processor is, I would get a new laptop.

It is my opinion that you will not be helping yourself by trying to undervolt.  There are numerous thread on the forum about users creating problems by trying to undervolt laptops.

Those users who have not X and K processors that tout undervolting are fooling themselves.  The best approach is to find a good, well engineered, well designed laptop.  The issue here is they are not cheap.

Re: Intel XTU doesnt start

I understand its old but it gets the job done :). Just started the thread thinking it would help me start XTU which is not possible now and undervolting is not suggested as its risky and not too worth taking an effort.. Will check my options for undervolting as I would prefer to work my way out of this (even it means I'm fooling myself ). Thank you for your time ....
