Thermal Limit setting in Armoury Crate

There's this setting in ROG 5 Ultimate's Armoury Crate that I can't really comprehend. It's the "Thermal Limit"

So there's "Low", "Medium" and "High".

Does "Low" means there's a low limitation to the thermal accumulation, which allow the device to heat up. Or does "Low" means it has a low threshold, which prevent the thermal to accumulate?

What I noticed is, if I set it to low, there will be a lower system performance according to the radar chart, and vice versa.

But regardless of what option I have choosen, my phone can heat up like a hand warmer.

Hence, I'm wondering.

Thanks in advance!

    That's to set your limit before your phone throttling

    For example if you set it low it will throttle at 45c but if you set it high it won't throttle at 45c


  • The point of Thermal limit is to control how warm the device is allowed to get before the system starts to throttle performance.

  • Oh, okay. Thanks alot for the information.
