How to Undervolt your Notebook GPU to Reduce it's Tempertaure !

As we have seen in most of my laptop reviews, undervolting the CPU really helps in bringing its temperature down.
The same can be done on your GPU using MSI Afterburner (https://www.msi.com/page/afterburner).
Here I reduce the temperature on my notebook GTX 1080 by 5 to 7 Deg C.
An easy solution that doesn’t require any repasting.

    What are the values of the graph?

  2. Eder on November 15, 2021 at 10:52 am

    Nice i got the Sager pn9877 and after repasting and and setting a good fan curve my gtx 1080 went from 90c to 55-58 max with 100% utilization and as a result it stays at 1911mhz as advertised it runs with 0.9 volts without much issues might bump it up 1 more notch for stability reasons 0.91 or somthing

    Can you tell me how to undervolt a nvidia mx230?

  4. SuperResistant on November 15, 2021 at 10:55 am

    I like to keep it around the minimum voltage, it’s quiet

  5. Michael on November 15, 2021 at 10:56 am

    Sorry how do I know what voltage amd frequency to undervolt at? Do I just pick a random voltage and run stress tests? If so, how do I do that?

    Hm, your video is clear however, I cannot seem to replicate the results. I have a Geforce 1070 – on an MSI GT72VR-6RE-Dominator-Pro-Tobii laptop. I am running the beta version of MSI afterburner 460 beta 9. I have made a curve which is almost exactly as yours, but the temperature I get with the default curve and the new one is identical – 90 degrees Celcius. I unlocked both options in settings (unlock voltage control and unlock voltage monitoring) – I would like to get somewhere between 7 and 10 degrees less. Can this be done and what am I doing wrong?

  7. Brandon Shand on November 15, 2021 at 10:59 am

    Okay I found the graph. Could you list the mV and Mhz values numerically so I have a clear picture of the proper settings. If you wouldn’t mind it would help alot. Im a beginner at gpu adjustments like this so that graph confuses me.

  8. Kin Bailey on November 15, 2021 at 10:59 am

    thats great but how do you DO it

  9. We st on November 15, 2021 at 10:59 am

    Sorry im a noob in tech, but at which point in the graph should i move the points up or down to undervolt my GPU?

  10. Hey Hey! on November 15, 2021 at 11:01 am

    i just locked my cpu clock to 2.8 ghz and it dsent go over 80 degerees on acer nitro 5
    And i dont see any performance loss

  11. Normimb on November 15, 2021 at 11:02 am

    Thank you. Worked for me. GTX1070 and 8750H. Temps of the GPU droped -8C and CPU -6C in a shared heatsink. Alienware 15R4.

  12. ax17 on November 15, 2021 at 11:02 am

    Nice video! About 20 minute’s setting, now my laptop run quiet stable and cool, thanks!

  13. DeM0_o on November 15, 2021 at 11:04 am

    I’m not able to move the individual dots. It’s struck

  14. Balkeet007 on November 15, 2021 at 11:05 am

    Thanks very useful video about uv the gpu. Had my y540 2060 maxing at 75c temperature with default voltage of 1.068 but after modifying the graph voltage is .750 and temperature at 68c. Thanks again. There is so much software can do to control temperature than repasting and cooling pad

  15. Emrah Suna on November 15, 2021 at 11:06 am

    What’s the software called on the top left hand corner. Capturing the FPS and Temps of CPU and GPU , is it FRAPS ?

  16. elmehdi swissa on November 15, 2021 at 11:07 am

    dude wtf thats not how we undervolt XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

  17. WaZee on November 15, 2021 at 11:08 am

    Can you help me ?

  18. alkhoiry on November 15, 2021 at 11:10 am

    Is undervolting gpu reduce performance too? (Read= lower fps)

  19. Pradeep Singh on November 15, 2021 at 11:10 am

    Ummm… I was trying the opposite to overclock my GPU. I got carried away tho, i simple took all the right half portion points straight to the top and I’m fucked up now.
    The system ain’t even starting, not even in safe boot. That’s fuckin crazy 😵

  20. Paul Vallance on November 15, 2021 at 11:13 am

    Nice channel – I like your cIarity and enthusiasm. For my sins I have an Alienware M15 with the GTX1660 ti card. In MSI Afterburner’s curve the (NVIdea spec) max frequency of1850 MHz is at 1v. Running Heaven I get a stable 1725 Mhz and the test repeatedly completes at 73 degrees C. If I undervolt by setting the 1850 Mhz point to 875mV and run same test again, the card runs at a stable but higher 1840 MHz and the temperature goes up to 75 degress C. I don’t seem to be able to reduce the temperature of the GPU at all, no matter what i put into the curves, even though HWinfo reports the expected reduction in the GPU core voltage. Confused.

  21. CORE FRAMES on November 15, 2021 at 11:13 am

    It looks like you just overvolted your GPU,if I am not wrong ..

  22. bigbenisdaman on November 15, 2021 at 11:14 am

    Can you do an updated on eof this? How to have to apply the uv at launch? My bios won’t let me tinker, have to do everything in IEU but it dont’ apply till i Launch it.

  23. WaZee on November 15, 2021 at 11:15 am

    I press CTRL+F and nothing happens

  24. TheSkepticSkwerl on November 15, 2021 at 11:18 am

    underclocking IS NOT undervolting. It has similar results high end, but no change low end.

  25. mini on November 15, 2021 at 11:18 am

    How do I do this with XTU? I undervolted my CPU using xtu and I’m more comfortable with it

  26. Doflamingo sama on November 15, 2021 at 11:19 am

    If I press ctrl+f do nothing why ?

  27. Brandon Shand on November 15, 2021 at 11:19 am

    I tried this awhile ago now that I think of it. I believe i even watched this vid. I CANT seem to make sense of that graph however or what exactly your doing or supposed to do. Also how to reset everything bzcl to defualt if neccessary. Also I never got a respose to my follow up ? On the Omen X rev. Vid..

  28. Tai Le on November 15, 2021 at 11:21 am

    I have Dell Precision 5520 using card Quadro M1200. Programs IETU, Thottlestop, MSI afterburners not support undervolt this card. Do you know how to undervolte it? Thank you!

  29. Xuan Sheng Tie on November 15, 2021 at 11:23 am

    Hi Steven, may I know why the curve resets to default after pressing apply? Looking everywhere online and no one seems to have addressed this. I have a Quadro P2000 (pascal) for my dell precision 7530 if anything.

  30. mandar kadwekar on November 15, 2021 at 11:23 am

    How to exactly adjust the curve is there any reference where the points on graph should be?

  31. EladansClan on November 15, 2021 at 11:23 am

    Can anyone tell me his or her experiences with the zephyrus M???

  32. Hatty xD1 Youtuber on November 15, 2021 at 11:24 am

    Thanks, that helped a lot

  33. Venoze on November 15, 2021 at 11:25 am

    90 C ?!?!?! how does it survive ^^

  34. username on November 15, 2021 at 11:27 am

    so how is the gpu temperature when the laptop is idle?

  35. waleed afandi on November 15, 2021 at 11:27 am

    Will this work on a laptop gtx 1060 Max Q?

  36. Brandon Shand on November 15, 2021 at 11:28 am

    Okay last thing, I cant seem to bring up that graph it only lets me raise or lower the core clock and mem. Clock via the last 2 sliders b4 fan speeds. Can I use that to undervolt and if so how much do you reccomended undervolting each by?

  37. richespice on November 15, 2021 at 11:34 am

    doesn’t work on a 980m

  38. Pear Tree on November 15, 2021 at 11:35 am

    Great and useful video. Some very helpful comments as well. Thanks!!!

  39. Teddy Smith on November 15, 2021 at 11:35 am

    MY GTX 1060 laptop undervolted gpu reaches 1900mhz ,is that normal?

  40. NoVa_E on November 15, 2021 at 11:37 am

    Is every gtx 1060 6gb MHz and MV value the Same so i can over take your settings? Because i have a gp73 8re and want to undervolt it little bit. ATM its Not needed. Temps are most of the time AT 70 degrees but to hold this i would Like to undervolt my gpu without Performance loss.

  41. Mr. Whis on November 15, 2021 at 11:38 am

    Why is it when i play a game my temp goes to 163 but as soon as a exit it goes back to 32

  42. D-ray on November 15, 2021 at 11:39 am

    Ctrl + F doesn’t open anything… they told me is a Incompatibility problem or something like that. Help me please!

  43. TheSpikeyCantaloupe on November 15, 2021 at 11:39 am

    Undervolted i7-6700hq -.145, turbo boost off, gtx 1060 non max q underclocked to 1650 and undervolted to .8 max temperatures for both cpu and gpu are 65 Celsius. This is in a gs63vr stealth pro and the fans a silent 🙂

  44. Soso Ac on November 15, 2021 at 11:40 am

    Hello
    My laptop is an hp pavilion gaming 15-cx0031nf
    if someone have the value for an gtx 1060 max q because my gpu is really hot about 95 degrees celcius .
    I’m sorry @OWNordisown but I’m very bad in english i can’t understand what you say in your video
    Thanks a lot .

  45. Mahmoud Gaming | محمود للالعاب on November 15, 2021 at 11:40 am

    I press CTRL + F but nothing shows up , any help??

  46. Brandon Shand on November 15, 2021 at 11:40 am

    The graph you use to compare the undervolt to stock settings has a different curve than the one you made the adjustments on. Does the curve on the left side have to look the same as the final graphthe or do you simply need to set 1 point to 875 and 1900mhz & apply?
    Im totally new to gpu undervolting or overclocking so this program is new to me and I don’t know all its ins and outs so I dont know how this graph works. You only showed yourself adjusting the single point so I need to make sure the changes I saw in the graph used for comparison dont mean anything or vice versa and howcome it didnt look thay way when set it at the beggining of the vid before the benchmark comparison.

    I may have overexplained a bit. My apologies but your vids are great and you seem knowledgeable so I hope you get back to both my comments at your soonest convenience for some peace of mind and finally learn how to use this graph and undervolt my GPU

  47. Theo Ross on November 15, 2021 at 11:42 am

    This really helped clear up some confusion I had with undervolting and the voltage graph. Thank you!

  48. Mark Bayne on November 15, 2021 at 11:44 am

    I have a rtx 2080 max q and the specs online say it has a turbo clock of 1290 MHz, but whenever I run tests it can hit Upto 1900mhz, if I was to undervolt it what MHz should I be looking to hit, is it overworking at 1900 or is it actually able to work at that sort of level?

  49. itzlibo on November 15, 2021 at 11:47 am

    I tried yesterday on my laptop and msi afterburner didn’t save my curve. How to save it ?

  50. Biswajeet Sahoo on November 15, 2021 at 11:49 am

    How to keep the custom curve active even after reboot???
