Understand then COOL the intel i7H CPU Tech guide #2 ⮜iDATUS⮞
Razor or any make of laptop tech support guide by iDATUS, and this is episode 2 of understanding, Intel i7 CPUs for any laptop, that’s 8th, 9th and 10th generation.
This is about the power boost timer.
A power boost is anything above the working CPU wattage of 45 watts to enable power boost?
You need software from the manufacturers, such as Razer synapse.
This timer was news to me, I thought power boost stayed on until a thermal event occurred.
Now don’t confuse turbo frequency with turbo power.
When the frequency goes up it requires more wattage, anything above 45W is put on a timer.
I’m going to show you how to test this boost timer using throttleStop.
First of all, set all your cores to 39 and we’re going to not change any of the cpu voltages.
Leave them all as factory defaults, and this is to get our initial benchmark.
All those things just popped up on the screen you can read them while we’re actually running the test which takes two minutes.
Next test just makes sure you clear everything, leave it all at 39 again, but this is time we’re going to use these offset voltages and they should be pretty good for anybody.
For the eagle-eyed amongst you, notice that we didn’t get the initial limit reasons pop up.
We actually only get to PL1 and EDP other and that’s all you want to see in there.
As you can see, it’s a lot better just by changing the voltage.
Here are the results for the benchmark just done.
What you want to do after this is you want to carry on repeating process but set all the cores to 38, 37, 36 etc and get to the stage where you’re happy that the boost time lasts as long as you require it.
Let compare just leaving all the cores to 39 and do nothing other than change the voltage.
We got 14 seconds faster to complete the benchmark, we’re 13 watts less power usage and actually boosted for 13 seconds longer and it went down to 45 watts. This is because we did not hit a high temperature plus it continued 400 megahertz faster.
Now what to take from my tech guide?
If your application is bursty, then use Turbo Power.
If your application is full on power-hungry like a game or something then steadied lower frequency would be better well.
In episode 3, I’m going to show you other monitoring tools and another CPU bench market.
Until we get the monitoring and benchmark tool set up correctly, you can’t move on with our controlling of the i7 CPU and making our apps run better cooler and more efficient.
Thanks again for watching subscribe, thumbs up, questions.

Razer Personal Mouse Mat ◄iDATUS►
Right today, I’m going to show you Razer custom, mouse, mat and custom means you can have your own name on it.
Yes, your own name, logo, idea, handle, whatever you can have it on it.
No lets get it out of the box.
I do like these Razer boxes and colourings.
It’s really cool.
So as you can see, it’s a black mat and as well as your own name, you also get Team Razer bit like the logo spinning I showed you before.
They don’t do lowercase it’s all capitals.
Upto 15 letters.
It’s rubber on the back, its stitched all round the outside, print goes all the way through.
The material like some kind of stitching.
You can only get your text in white, but that’s fine.
Okay, that’s what the mat looks like.
What do you think?
Hmm I liked it, I bought it.
Bye for now.

Convert BIOS MBR to UEFI GPT with MBR2GPT ⮜iDATUS⮞
Quick little video on how to convert a hard drive which was created either with hyper-v generation, 1 or imported from say, an old machine, or something which has got a Master Boot Record, which is kind of like the old bio settings.
And we want to convert it to a UEFI BIOS compatible with GPT formatting.
It’s all built into Windows, and I’ve got a virtual machine here and I’ll just show you what the hard drive looks like before and after.
That’s what it looks like on the old bias format and we will convert that to a UEFI.
Several ways of starting it up in safe mode but found this was to be the easiest.
So on your login page, you must now hold down the shift key and select restart whilst carry on holding the shift key.
We want to go into troubleshoot, advanced, command prompt.
Asks for a username and account to login.
Type MBR2GPT /convert
If you were doing this on a physical machine, you would have to restart the machine, go into the BIOS and then change the boot mode to UFI.
You need to do this in the virtual machine as well, which is what I’m a going to show you now.
Exit and turn off the machine.
Edit the machines .vmx config file, open with notepad.
Find the line that says
firmware = “bios” and change it to
firmware = “efi”
It says ir s so II.
If you don’t change it then it comes up with a rather nasty error.
Look out for my next video, which shows you how to convert machines to newer versions of VMware Player.
As you see, this version here is 11, and I want to convert it to 15.
