I have been trying to Undervolted my Zephyrus S with little to no success, Can anyone who has successfully done undervolting with the same laptop model or similar share their settings?

Thank you

CPU in this laptop has an increased TDP from 45W to 70W so the UV attempt fails. I managed to lower the voltage by 45mV.

What are your Cinebench R20 scores?

On my previous laptops: Zephyrus GX531i MSI GS65, I was able to lower the voltage by 120mV - 150mV. Both featured the 8750H CPU. On GX701 with 8750H the voltage is lowered by 45mV. In Cinebench R20 I have 2845 points with Armory Crate in Turbo Mode.

are you sure your undervolt is working properly?

Wait how does your unit have 8750, mine has 9750h

Hi,

- 45mV is a pretty bad result so why should I not be sure :) Increased TDP - CPU needs higher voltage. I don't think you will lower the tension on your GX701 much yet. As I wrote above - when I had MSI GS65 I lowered the voltage by 150mV. Most importantly, the temperatures are low. The maximum I achieved was 89 C on the CPU and 78 C on the GPU during a few hours of maximum load. At an room temperature of 22 C. For example games: RDR2, Battlefield V. This is a good result for this laptop. Of course, after replacing the thermal paste.

Regards

Thank you, it makes sense now. Also would undervolting the GPU reduce the thermals on this laptop? Like you mentioned above, I am not able to undervolt it past 45-46 on CPU cache using throttlestop. The laptop gives me the BSOD, and despite my best efforts I haven't been able to keep the thermals under control, will instantly become a toaster 5 minutes into the game.

Hi i have 309 bios with gx701gx, the new bios lock some feature.

But throttlestop help with temps

I done undervolting -70
70 power limit
90 max power limit

And i make a custom fan dissipation system on top of keyboard.

Now temps under CPU BURN AND BENCHMARK CPU at the same time ARE:

75 cpu
50 gpu

Bye!

hi, i just got this laptop, gx701lws
with the latest bios, is that possible to undervolt at all? it is 10875H i believe.. the 8 cores cpu. sorry for my lack of knowledge just need some insight how to undervolt a little as to keep lower temp too...

i tried throttlestop and it seems unable or locked
can i unlock it ?

cheers

The latest bios block the voltage regulation of the CPUs on ALL ROG family notebooks models.
@blacbeast
Voltage variation options are unlocked for NVIDIA RTX cards. But in RTX 2060 you won't be able to lower the voltage because this card already works with very low voltage. The lowering of the voltage on the RTX 2080 is also impossible as it is the Max-Q version. The best candidate for Undervolting is the RTX2070 with a TDP 115W

thanks for your kind reply, my set up is the 2080s max q and so no way i would be performing undervolting? too bad they lock the cpu as well, as today when i was playing death stranding, it gets thermal throttling on regular basis as well as power limit throttling which im not sure what it is? any advice for any solution?

The solution is very simple. Replace thermal paste for CPU and GPU. Disassembly instruction:

But don't do like this guy. Just put new paste on the CPU and GPU. Gelid GC extreme or Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut. Leave the brand paste and thermopads as it was!

well my gx501vik automaticly update to bios 313 and now i basically have a brick i can no longer undervolt and because of this when playing on my 34" screen the temp rise in the 94degrees and i get studder and yes i did a repaste allready before with a -.125 undervolt i would never touch 90 degrees so i am verry piss off , first it was the battery swelling and now that , this is my last intel and asus laptop (i know asus does not give a **** about my complaint but i had to write it somewhere )
i try to downgrade to the bios 311 witch it work but everytime i restart it automaticly reinstall the 313 bios and if i go turn off the automatic update in registry well my bleutooth device are missing driver and cannot update tem ..........
sorry for my desapointment have a nice day everyone

I had the same problem. When you disable third-party driver installation, the BIOS will not be automatically updated.

Below link:

Or second solution: Flash older version BIOS 311 and reinstall (format) Windows. Then the BIOS update to the newer version will not be found and automatically installed. Both methods work on my GX701

the first option did not work as it keep reupdating, but the second option did work install the 311 bios and fresh window install
Thank for your help .
