    Windows 10 - Maximum Processor State isn't working


    It was fine before when I'm still using Windows 7.
    Now it doesn't matter how much I limit my CPU max state, it always at 100% under load.
    Funny thing is, when I raise the minimum CPU state to higher than 5%, it works without issue.

    Perhaps this can help in some way :


    OS : Windows 10 Enterprise x64
    CPU : i7-4790 [Non Overclock]

    I usually keep it under 80% max state, I tried lowering to 10% max state, still the same.
    I'm on standard cooler which is the only thing keeping me going. [To avoid overheating]
    Can't afford a better cooler yet. [Might not needed if anyone can solve this issue !]

    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Thank You.

    You can achieve the same results a bit differently.

    In the BIOS you can adjust the Target CPU Turbo-Mode Speed, on the AI Tweaker tab.
    You can also play around with the Q-Fan controls on the Monitor tab, also in the BIOS.

    I've found the fix !
    Now everything is back to the way it should be.
    80% Max state is working absolutely fine now. [2850 Mhz for 55'c]

    When I double-check whatever other softwares that might be controlling the CPU.
    It turns out, to my surprise, I had Xbox Game Mode turned on then I immediately disable it.
    I don't even know why it's there from the first place but I do remember this issue come after a WinUpdate.

    Gladly, I didn't touch anything around the BIOS just yet.
    I'm sure OS installation process will never have anything to do with BIOS, right ?

    Anyway, thanks a lot for the help !
    Might share this solution to anyone with the same problem in the future ?

    No, but those BIOS settings, may help you with your temperatures if you are ever interested in doing that.

    Good job though, with the original problem.

    Hi,
    HWmonitor is a poor utility to use and usually inaccurate
    Hwinfo64 is better for lots of info but coretemp is best for just monitoring temperatures it uses little to no resources to function
    Free Download HWiNFO Sofware | Installer & Portable for Windows, DOS

    Download Core Temp - MajorGeeks

    If you're having heating issues first thing would be to blowout the fans....

    Thank you @ThrashZone,
