    @sri369 That normal score. I asked a friend of mine which has i7-7700HQ undervolted -100 mV to run cinebench. His result is 734.
    @Red-Sand Yes my notebook is Helios 300 with i7-8750H CPU.
    Attached is a screenshot after a night of idling. Maintained 40 deg steady. I think before installing the park control I was idling at about 33-34. Will try the next few night between balanced and Bitsum power plan.
    Your CPU is at full speed! I don't think your CPUs are parked at all. What is the min processor state? Make sure it is set to 0. Do not use high performance power plan. Recommended is a custom power plan with CPU min kept at 0.

    Create or update your power plan with CPU performance settings as mentioned by me or RedSand and you should see lowered temps.

    I never use high performance power plan. Normally I use balanced, but after setting park control (exact same settings as Red-Sand) Now I use Bitsum high performance. Min processor state is 0 and all other settings are same as yours. And while Throttlestop shows 3.4 on all cores, park control shows 10 out of 12 parked.
    BTW after changing Processor energy performance preference tp 25 the freq is no longer cap at 3.4. But still the temperatures are higher than without park control on balanced power plan.
    yesterday I tested light gaming. For comparison with park control (Bitsum high performance) temperatures was 5-7 degrees higher than without on balanced.

    On every plan I have min processor state is 0 and max is 100

    Here is the proof. 1st part of the diagram is with Park Control and Bitsum High Performance Power Plan, second part is Ballanced power plan.
    Other settings remain unchainged. Throttlestop Max turbo boost in FIVR 41/41/40/40/39/39, undervolted -135mV on core and cache. Predator Sence fans on auto.
    The temperature difference is about 4-5 degrees.

    First of all Throttlestop basically modifies the registries that Park control does. Took my a while to figure that out, so disabling speed shift epp on throttlestop allows park control to take effect.

    Second a CPU is parked when utilization is 0% (FID on the chart in throttlestop) the clock speeds shown in throttlestop does not mean your CPU is running at those speeds, it means your CPU is ready to run at those clock speeds. FID shows actual usage.

    Something is wrong somewhere in your settings. Core Parking effects are best noticed under idle/low loads cos that's when most cores are parked.

    Isnt C0% the utilization? I think if C0% is 0 means that the core is parked. I might have FID 41.00 but most cores are parked (as the park control shows) and the C0% in throttlestop is 0.
    I dont know if I am doing somthing wrong but the temperatures with park control are higher... dont know why.

    Check under windows task manager with all CPUs being displayed, or under Park Control app. You can see which CPUs are up and which are parked.

    In device manager - the parked cores shows 0 utilization.
    In throttlestop - the parked cores are at 0 C0% ( The FID of the parked cores continues to change up and down )
    In park control - shows 2 out of 12 or 4 out of 12...
    It looks that they are really parked.
    It doesn't matter. I tried many times with different settings and I get higher temperatures every single time with Park Control, compared to Ballanced power plan without Park Control. I quit trying anymore. 
    I have pretty good temperatures without Park Control, so I don't really need it.
    Thank you anyway for trying to help :)

    When I enter the command to import the power plan, it just says that "This file doesn't exists".
    Maybe we have to point the CMD prompt to the file's directory.
    You should update the readme file.

    UPDATE:
    You need the cd command, pointing at your power plan directory and "..." when entering the power plan name in the CMD for it to work properly.

    UPDATE 2:
