[REQUEST] ASUS FX504GM CPU Power Limit
#1
My laptops config is 8300H and 1060 3Gb model.

This laptop is known for the power throttling it does to the cpu when cpu + gpu are both loaded. As soon as PL2 hits the cpu goes down to 25w mode, and stays there for many minutes even after the gpu load has dissappeared which is very annoying for gaming and productivity. I suspect around 45-55 watts would be needed to sustain the max turbo boost of 4Ghz at all times, my cpu with -0.160mv undervolt draws 52w max in Cinebench R15. People also talk about bad temperatures on this machine. I personally haven't had any problems with the thermals on this laptop, swapped both gpu and cpu to liquid metal day 1 I got the machine. Also got rid (made a big, big hole) of the "Asus Anti-Dust Cooling Technology" which in reality means the fans aren't exposed to fresh air in any way and have to pull air through small vents miles away from the fans or through the keyboard. I have tried old bioses, Throttlestop (which works on the undervolt but can't fix the power limit issue) and modding a bios myself. Took a copy with AMIFlash, edited access/use of some folders inside with AMIBCP and flashed it again with AMIFlash with /GAN variable. The flash was successful but nothing changed in the bios, leading me here asking for help  Blush  Would it be possible to tinker the settings in bios for example like this; the cpu PL2 would be 50w and gpu power limit would be lower since the cpu is getting more juice? IF anyone has any knowledge to tackle this problem, I would very much like to know.

I have the previous version  (FX 503VM same gpu,and i5 7300hq cpu) . I did the same like you and I got the same negative result as yours.
However I have noted while modding with AMIBCP, there where 2 advanced tabs ,2 main tabs ,2 boot tabs .
The submenu of only one of the advanced,main and boot shows up in the bios.The sub menus under the other advanced tab doesnt shows up even if you change the acces/use through AMIBCP.So there has to be something done to show up those second set of all tabs(main,advanced,boot,save and exit) and submenus under bios.Hope someone would help us.

I am amazed that you dont reach your thermal throttle level .In my case (when both are loaded with high load)my gpu can go upto 85 watts whereas my cpu cant even reach 30 watts.
