increasing "processor current limit" in XTU, works wrong!

Hi

i have a toshiba z30-a and it has Core i5-4300U.

i want to overclock it by XTU. i found that EDP throttling turns on when i want to overclock it. so i increased "processor current limit"

at first, it worked well. the default number is 19 A, so i increased it to 25, and it was good and i got +5 fps in my video game

but after 25 A, if i increase it more, it works wrong! for example if i set it to 30 A, the fps will be the same number as 19 A!!

what is the problem? and how can i solve it?

Your processor is not supported by XTU. You have a "U" processor. Only X and K processors are supported by XTU.

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

 

And, you should uninstall XTU before you do damage to your device.

do you mean even if i increase it to 25 A, it would cause problems?

XTU is not for your processor. Your processor cannot be overclocked. Any readings/data you see are unreliable.

Uninstall XTU
