How can i control max CPU clock speed?

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 15-EC0005NT
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to control my CPU's max clock speed..

I don't want it to max on 3.6 GHZ when i'm rendering because it's getting 90-95 degrees + fan speed becomes too high + i can't do any other thing on the computer


Thanks in advance

Ryzen 5 3550H

@pavilion15user The only way to tweak how the processor works, is by following the below steps, there are no other ways recommended or supported by HP of getting it done:

If you have selected maximum battery life while your computer is unplugged, the processor power runs at a slower speed than as if it were plugged in. To control the processor adjustment through Power Options in the Control Panel, follow the steps below.

  1. Click Start, enter power in the search field and then select Power Options from the list.

    Alternately, right-click the power icon in the system tray beside the clock and select Power Options.

  2. After the Power Options window appears, there are three plans from which you can choose:

    • HP Recommended

      Provides a balance between power conservation and performance.

    • Power saver

      Use Power saver mode when a wall outlet for DC power is unavailable.

    • High performance

      Use High performance mode for the best processor responsiveness while plugged into a wall outlet (AC power).

To customize any of these power plans, click Change plan settings.
