How to Enable PowerCut on 4th and 5th Generation Core i CPUs.
------------------------------------------------------------- with laptop plugged in and running on AC power, press the FIVR button to open
the Turbo FIVR Control window.
- change the VCCIN CPU input voltage from Default to a fixed value. (~1.75 V)
- check PowerCut and agree with the warning message.
- with CPU idle and power consumption low, push Apply. PowerCut should now be r
eported as Enabled.
- if PowerCut is Enabled, power consumption reporting will no longer be accurate
on some CPUs.
- this can help eliminate throttling based on power consumption. (PL1 & PL2)

If you have any trouble with the system tray icons not appearing, go to this web
site:
How to Clean the Notification Area Icon Cache in Windows 7 & Windows 8
http://www.digitalcitizen.life/how-clean-notification-area-icon-cache
Download and run the included program:
Notification_Area_Cleaner.zip
This deletes the Windows Icon Cache history from the Windows registry and forces
Windows to rebuild it.
The included .bat file from the above site has been fully tested and is safe to
use.
Your feedback is always appreciated.
