Hi Srinivas,

Thanks you for your quick reply.

No.

I am nowhere near any power limit at all.
I have meticulously configured and tested the thermal management of this computer.
I never ever hit a thermal limit and have TDP set such that the processor
temperature never exceeds about 75 degrees centigrade.

There should never be throttling involved in these experiments.
I can achieve throttling when compiling the kernel and with
torture test mode on the mprime test (other CPU stressors,
including my own, are not as good at generating heat as
mprime).

This system can run indefinitely at 99.9 watts processor package power.
Example (turbostat, steady state, CPU freq throttled to 4.04 GHz):

doug@s18:~$ sudo ~/turbostat --Summary --quiet --show Busy%,Bzy_MHz,PkgTmp,PkgWatt,GFXWatt,IRQ --interval 12
Busy% Bzy_MHz IRQ PkgTmp PkgWatt GFXWatt
100.21 4045 72231 66 99.93 0.00
100.21 4043 72239 65 99.92 0.00

No. The web page version of my original e-mail has
a link to the test computer hardware profile.

The motherboard is ASUS PRIME Z390-P.

Correct.

No, I am not going to.

I am not running thermald. Eventually I will, as a backup
in case of cooling failure, so as not to hit the processor limit
shutdown. I just haven't done it yet.
