    Hello Nabeel, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Check to see if you may have Intel Power Management or some other 3rd party utility installed that may be overriding your Windows power plan settings.

    Sorry for sounding like a noob but wouldn't choosing a power plan like high performance in Power Options fix all this? Or is there something I don't know?

    Hello Chris, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    No worries. See my signature about asking questions.

    These two settings are to be able to set the min/max processor state to what you may want them to be other than the default defined by the active power plan.
