Hey,

 

Im bought a i7 13700 without K and have question about the Power Settings in BIOS. Im set mine in my BIOS to PL1 125 Watts and PL2 to 219 Watts, that's correct Settings? So generally in runs with 125 Watts, in Short Times when the Boost is active for 96 Seconds its up to 219 Watts. This Settings are correct? Normally my BIOS have no Limit in PL1 and PL2 so it runs very hot with much Power.

Hello, @flipstA  

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.  

 

I am sorry to hear what is happening with your processor, I will gladly assist you here. 

 

The PL1 is correct since it must not exceed the processor base power, which is 125 Watts, you can verify this in the processor's datasheet, page 71 and 83. 

 

However, we don't have a recommended PL2 as it may have different values based on the different motherboard (Power supply and VRM) thermal solution, if the customer has a higher PL2 it may result in a Current/EDP Limit warning and VRM thermal warning and cause system is unstable like overheating, etc.  

 

We would like to suggest you to adjust the PL2 to a proper value which you can have the most stable system and CPU performance.
