Undervolting Acer nitro 5, did I do right?(AN515-54-79EL )

Tinkerer

Model Name: AN515-54-79EL 
Part Number: NH.Q5BED.072
Spec
9gpu:1660 ti 6gb
cpu:i7-9750h
system: Windows 10 Home

I wanted to undervolt my cpu because the temp was very high. So I downloaded the Throttlestop, but am not very sure if I have done it correctly.

I tested first with different volt and run the ts bench with size 64M, 256M and 1024M to see if there are any errors (I did not know what the differences are between them and i can not find it either, so i just ran all three of them.). After doing few tests, i found that -135.7 mV would not cause any error. Btw, i have -135.7 mV on CPU core, CPU cache and IntelGPU and the rest is still 0V. After that I did a stresstest on prime95 on both samll and large FFTs for 10 min each, and it did not cause any reboot either. So, am I done or is there still any thing that i should do?

    did you have any problem until now with the CPU until now because I want to undervolt my CPU and GPU as well and then do stress test on prime95 to make sure that it is working my laptop is acer nitro 5 
    processor: amd ryzen 5 2500u with radeon vega mobile gfx
    graphics card : radeon rx560x series

    Nitro 5's are designed to run hot. AMD Ryzen and Intell CPU's and GPU's up to 97 deg c and failsafes in the laptop wil cut in if the processor gets too hot. If you are not experiencing any problems why are you throttling back?

    Please click "YES" to "Did this answer the question" if my answer helped solve your problem. 

    Thank you and have a blessed day  B)
