Zbook 15v5 G5 Xeon e2176m thermal throttling issues

HP Recommended
Zbook 15v G5
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello everyone and HP,

So i bought this workstation because I was supposed to have a base clock cpu of 2.7 and turbo of 4.4.

But alas, yeah, I was scammed by HP. Yes, scammed. THis workstation has severe, severe thermal issues that CANT BE RESOLVED BY ANY MEANS. 

Repasting, cleaning, undervolting, cooling pad, power plans, processor states, turbo boost....absolutely NOTHING works to prevent this product from reaching 96C under load, nothing.

So of course im thinking about selling it for scrap and never recommending this company again to ANYONE, but before I do that....I just wanted to try luck here , see if anyone had a fix for this seemingly unsolvable deal breaking issue. I cant work on my video edits nor music making because the **bleep** thing runs at 1.8-2.2 ghz the most because of all the throttling caused by the insane heat produced by the cpu and the awful heatsink paired with it.

Welcome to the club 😉

Zbook 17 G5, now that Plundervolt got fixed covered by tarp via disabling undervolting altogether, there's no way to achieve sustained high clocks. Also interrupt storms from poorly implemented firmware cause one core to go 100% randomly.

The capital sin is committed either by their lenience in releasing an unfinished product or by releasing it without a clue. 

Im gonna try liquid metal next week....i think it wont do a difference at all. 

**bleep**....this has been the worst technology purchase ive done in my life.
