Dell XPS 15 9500 Thermal Throttle

Hello Ya'll,


Does someone if the XPS 15 9500 will thermal throttle as bad as the XPS 15 9560?

I know the heat reduction cannot be solved anymore with undervolting on the 9500.

Kind regards,

I have the same problem with my XPS 15 9560, while playing games, until I set the Thermal Management Profile to "Cool" in the Dell Power Manager.

In the Nvidia Control Panel --> Manage 3d Settings --> Program Settings, I have set the "Power Management Mode" to "Prefer Maximum Performance" for the .exe for every game. After applying this, I rebooted my XPS and now all my games are running smootly enough.


Try this out and maybe this will work for you also!

Good luck!



It stil thermal throttles quick badly. Ive been running GTA & COD Modern Warfare and it thermal throttles all the time. THe BIOS Disabled throttlestop so there is no way to undervolt
