XTU changed my Bios
« on: 10-November-17, 20:01:52 »

hi everyone. i don´t know anyting about overclocking but i tried to do it by myself. i readed that XTU could overclock my cpu so i downloaded it. and my cpu started to throttle. i didn't know that my cpu had intel speedstep and that all. but my problem was when i tried something. the last version on XTU changed my TURBO BOOST SHORT POWER MAX to 200w as default. i didn't know that but it was throttling very bad my cpu at the point of 1.1 ghz and lower. so i tried to rise it to 250w. bad idea it was rising my power consumption and cuting the AC power. then i put it down to some default settings that i found. now. can someone tell me how to get my original stock clocks or overclock it a bit

I suggest you could choose Dragon Center or Dragon Gaming Center of MSI software to overclock your laptop since it could avoid unknown issues. Try to find which one fits your model.

Dragon Center: Please open Dragon Center and go to “System Tuner” > “Shift” > click on “Sport ”.

Dragon Gaming Center:Please open Dragon Gaming Center and go to “System Monitor” > “Shift Mode” > click on “Sport Mode” to raise the performance

First I suggest you bring up the "active values". You can do this by clicking the little blue key in the right corner under help. Then you can see what is currently applied to your system - it can be different from the proposed values.  If it is still different from default ones, you can simply go to XTU - profiles - default - show values - then hit apply and reboot. That should do the trick.
Previous laptops: Asus K55VJ (i5-3210m, gt635m, 12GB ddr3 RAM, Samsung EVO 850 500GB)
                          MSI GT72VR 6RE (i7-6820HK, gtx1070), MSI GT75 8RG (i7-8750H, gtx 1080)
Current desktops:  i7-8700k, evga 1080ti ftw3, Asus Z370 prime-a, 2x8GB Corsair RAM @3000MHz, Fractal Design Define r6 TG white, Noctua NH-D15
                          i7-7740x, msi x299 raider, msi gtx 1060 armor 6GB, 2x8GB RAM, NZXT h440

Hey everyone,

I've been having the same kind of issue with XTU.
When it works well it's quite easy, safe and even scriptable if you want to apply specific values for something at boot but sometimes your PC just crashes because you're tinkering too much or are pushing it too hard for a few percent more.

I have a Z87-G45 gaming motherboard with a Core i5 4690K running at 4.7GHz (watercooled) and leave everything in the BIOS at it's default value. There is also an OC Genie button in that that sets your default values a tad higher but still within safe borders. This OC Genie and XTU combination worked more or less fine but a few weeks ago I added another 8 GB of RAM and then things started to get really screwed up since the older 8 GB can run at 1600 MHZ @ 1.35 volts but it's timings are 8-8-8-24 and the new 8 GB can also run at that speed but @ 1.5 volts and has 9-9-9-24 as timings so those 2 together are a pain in the ass to get set up correctly but in the end it works at 1600 MHZ @ 1.5 volts and 9-9-9-24 timings, all set with XTU.

And I'm still one of those people that uses Windows 7 but the last 2 versions of XTU won't install, you get a hard crash when it installs it's own device drivers. Intel knows but does not care.
But all this crashing somehow leaves XTU confused about it's default values, it even has different speeds for each core! And since you can't replace or change the default values you're screwed...:lol_anim:
