Is Power limit throttling safe for my computer?

My unit is lenovo s740 15IRH. Is turbo boost power max @25W not stable? It seemed to stabilize my CPU Temp @75degrees on an average while playing Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare or Warzone. This seems to be the solution to my Laptop's Thermal Throttling wit

hi sir @AndrewG_Intel​ 

 

I just want to know if this is safe for my device. The method with the XTU I did with my laptop stabilized the processor temperature and graphics card temperature.

I am really happy with the performance of my laptop even without the boost. I just want to know if this Current limit throttling and Power Limit throttling is safe for my computer.

 

Thank you

Hello RGatb

 

Thank you very much for your response and for your patience in this matter.

 

Regarding your inquiry, it is worth mentioning that any change in performance settings impacts temperatures and stability and we do not have details on hardware implementation, only the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), in this case Lenovo™ can assist with this specific inquiry for this system.

 

Having said that, we kindly recommend you to address this inquiry directly to Lenovo support for more accurate assistance.

 

Note:

Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility (Intel® XTU) is supported on valid processors intended to be used on platforms to enable novice and experienced enthusiasts to overclock, monitor, and stress a system.

Intel® XTU may or may not work on unsupported processors. We recommend checking the section "This download is valid for the product(s) listed below" on the Intel® XTU download webpage.

 

Best regards,
