hp pavilion gaming 15 pl1 power throttle

HP Recommended
Pavilion Gaming-15 dk0052tx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi I have hp pavilion gaming 15 -dk0052tx it has i7 9750h here the pl1 limit is 45 watt and it is locked in bios

there is no fan control from hp side i was able to control the fan speed using notebookfan control software and during stress test pl2 limit is around 68-70 watt with 87 C at max fan speed but my concern is after pl2 limit is over the processor pl1 set in 45 watt why

I mean if it's able to cool himself why the pl1 is set to 45 watt and we can't change the setting neither with intel xtu nor with throttlestop rebember 87 C in 68 watt so there is no thermal issue and is this due to bad design on the back side on fan intake dust collect in there so easily? is that a reason why you doesn't give us any fan control software (don't say omen command center/hp command center gives us the option they both doesn't work neither in fan control nor in power limit change)


the laptop is stable enough and it has headroom perform more so what was the reason of this 

I know you never let  the user's change their own device bios setting but atleast in your specs sheet you can.Many sites say your pl1 limits in configurable from 45 watt to 55 watt and 200 watt is enough for power delivery.


Plz Hp you make a nice product but what it's meaning if we can't use it's full caliber.

plz do something.
