    Throttlestop Question - Options Disabled in 1 Laptop


    I have two Dell laptops...a Dell XPS 13 9350 with i7-6600U and a new Dell XPS 15 9500 with i7-10875H. I wanted to use Throttlestop to undervolt and improve both temps and battery life. I thought I had it working on the 9350 but noticed that even though I could change the values, when I hit apply, nothing changed in the table in the top right (FIVR table). All voltage options are grayed out on the 9500. I read this might have to do with Intel protecting against exploits but wanted to make sure it wasn't just a BIOS setting I'm missing that I need to enable/disable to allow Throttlestop to access voltages and make changes. Thoughts?

    Is your Chipset driver up-to-date ?

    Make Sure: You have to apply the CPU Core and CPU Cache voltage offsets equally.

    Yep...tried that...it looks like Dell has implemented BIOS controls that prevent undervolting.
