  • 2015 Macbook Pro 15 Inch overheating when DJing
    This app completely reversed my hatred of the 2015 MacBook Pro: Source: about 1 year ago
  • 4 Issues with my Macbook Pro 2015 . Get it repaired or just get a new one?
    I have the 15-inch 2015 MBPro. The fan noise was iNsAnE. I was able to fix it using Turbo Boost Switcher. A replacement battery can be purchased for less than $100. Installing it isn't super easy but it's totally doable with some patience and persistence. Good luck! Source: about 1 year ago
  • Summer is coming…
    I’ve got a yellow coloured MacBook Pro plastic case that reflects sun. I also turn off turbo power boost (if yours is an Intel model it may do this). Close everything else and run waveform drawing speed at medium or slow. Source: about 1 year ago

  • Need help switching from Windows to Mac
    Even if you find a way, don't bother. Macos knows when to kick in the GPU and when it should be put to rest. 12.0 added low power mode, and you can use Turbo Boost Switcher to make the fans quieter and battery consumption lower at the cost of CPU performance. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • I have a 2019 MacBook Pro ‘16
    Get a laptop stand for your laptop on your bed. You can also download Turbo Boost Switcher for your Intel based MacBook if you're just doing standard stuff to prevent the CPU from boosting on otherwise normal tasks (web browsing, music and video playback). Performance will of course be slightly lessened because of this but it will keep the processor from ramping up too much for that normal business. Source: almost 2 years ago

    If you're just using it for basic computing, disable turbo boost at least with Turbo Boost Switcher: Source: about 2 years ago
  • A Big Guide for Performance, Thermals, &
    First things first, download and install Turbo Boost Switcher, then turn off turbo boost from menu bar. If you get pro, you can disable the confounded admin prompt upon login and wake from sleep, however, pro does have very nice features, such as per-app activation, auto-mode for fan rpm triggers, cpu temp triggers, etc. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Nightmare: Starting Ableton makes computer fans go wild, please help!! (since 11)
    My 2019 MacBook had the same issues. Now I use Turbo Boost switcher: It keeps your machine cooler. The payed version has an option to disable turbo boost when opening a specific application. But you can try it out with the free version. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Desperate to play sims on Macbook pro but the fan goes wild
    If you have an Intel Macbook you could try Turbo Boost Switcher to keep it cooler although it will likely impact performance in a negative way if gaming. Source: over 2 years ago

  • Automatic CPU speed and power optimizer for Linux
    I’ve found that can turn of turbo boost on intel macs to be useful when on battery and compiling. Since 100% cpu usage will run at a much lower TDP and not kill my laptop battery as fast. - Source: Hacker News / almost 3 years ago
  • Are there other options to reduce battery drain? I’m using cpu friend but I still feel like it drains faster than windows in power saving mode.
    Check out Turbo Boost Switcher to disable Turbo Boost or even Volta to undervolt your CPU (not compatible with newest CPUs). Source: almost 3 years ago
  • For my use case, should I return my 2020 i5 for a M1?
    I recommend Turbo boost switcher to turn off hyper-threading when you don't need it = laptop run much cooler, and it saves your battery. (For example when I do light browsing / youtube etc. Fans are 80% off the time turned off). Source: almost 3 years ago
