Hello czep0

 

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.

 

Regarding your specific inquiry, please allow us to look into it and we will be providing more details as soon as possible.

 

Also, it is worth mentioning that we recommend using the system with the default settings in the BIOS recommended by the computer manufacturer (OEM). Also, for Mobile processors, we recommend confirming with the laptop manufacturer regarding availability, possibility, and support for features or options to perform changes on their BIOS including altering clock frequencies or voltage.

 

Altering clock frequency and/or voltage may reduce system stability and useful life of the system and processor; cause the processor and other system components to fail; cause reductions in system performance; cause additional heat or other damage, and affect system data integrity. Intel has not tested, and does not warranty, the operation of the processor beyond its specifications.

 

Also, the Intel® Core™ i9-10980HK Processor and the Intel® Core™ i7-10750H Processor are only available as a Tray Processors, also known as Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) processor.

 

In general, tray processors are only sold to OEMs and not to end-users. For end-users, Intel doesn't provide direct warranty support and end-users should contact their OEM or reseller for warranty support.

 

Since altering clock frequencies and/or voltage may invalid warranty of the processor and/or the system where it is integrated, we highly recommend checking with your computer manufacturer before attempting any change regarding voltage and frequency. Also, they may advise regarding full system specifications and recommendations or tools to control and monitor CPU usage.

 

Best regards,

Hello czep0

 

We would like to update this thread and regarding your inquiries, we kindly recommend you to address these questions to your motherboard or computer manufacturer since we do not recommend overclocking/undervolting because of the details provided on my previous post and every individual system may have different capabilities, specifications and might be affected or limited by different factors, for instance: thermal design, system integration, power design, OEM limitations, etc.

 

Best regards,
