Hey,

I'm having the same issue with my i7-10700. The maximum processor frequency has not budged past .8 GHz, with the highest temp of 29C. Is there a way to turn off this throttling or did you find a solution for yours?

I did find a solution, in the Msi Dragon Center app you have to turn off "Game Mode"

Thanks for replying. I've actually found that turning the turbo boost and short turbo boost power max wattage down alleviates the problem. While the throttling may still occur, it seems more normal staying around 4.5Ghz. I set both values to 64 watts because that's one lower than the max wattage.
