Alienware 17 r3 CPU throttling

Hey,

Having issues with my laptop Cpu throttling due to exceeding power limits, looking in HWinfo it seems that the power limit randomly drops  by ~0.5w a second down to 0.125w, causing the cpu to throttle to 0.8ghz for a while then start increasing by 0.5w back up to 45

I started using xtu after i noticed it happen the first few times and set the turbo power limits to unlimited, but the power limits just drop to 45 when the decreasing power limit starts.
