Is it possible to raise the 'Power Limit Throttling' on this CPU/PC? Thoughts / Details / Ideas? ||| AS TYPING, STATS DROPPED TO 0.40 GHZ CORE CLOCK!

=====AS TYPING THIS, ALL STATS COMPLETELY DROPPED. HELP?!? http://prntscr.com/nsid7q (Yes its plugged in)=====

 

Under a sustained CPU test load, and even just on normal use, the CPU power limit throttling kicks in. I have it set to just 1.300V, at what it can pull 30 Amps (System Agent IccMax) ; yet it only draws just under 14 Amps and 1.200v flat at the most.

I'm sure it would be able to pull a lot more power, but it refuses to. For those who are going to ask: Yes, I have it plugged in. (at-least when I want to use that overclocking for games)

 

I guess im asking how to raise the core's overclocking / turbo Boost to something like 3.5GHz. It appears that thermal throttling is NOT the issue, and I have ways to cool it down when at high loads/tempature.

 

I have tried looking around in the BIOS, but nothing of interest came up. In fact, its probably one of the simplest BIOS's ive seen. Even my school's computers have a better BIOS. This has absolutely nothing related to the CPU on it; other than listing the model.

 

For those who are interested, the other settings that I use is a under-volting to increase battery life.

Your processor cannot be overclocked. Only K and X processors can be.

Turbo boost will kick in as needed.

 

Put the voltage back to normal - no under-volting.

What you need to do is to contact acer for support and THEIR BIOS. Acer is responsible for supporting your laptop.

Issue is, I had it on default settings when it dropped to .40 GHz. But thanks for that tip, ill see if Acer can help me. Probably not though.

 

--- .40 GHz problem was fixed with a simple restart. Was just some weird random occurrence.
