Ok caveats. Proceed at your own risk. I have used this hack for years on my i5 ultrabook and never had an issue. However, if you try it and your Surface Pro 3 breaks, not my fault. You've been warned. It's called Throttlestop (http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/2288/throttlestop-6-00/mirrors) and basically what it does is stop your cpu from throttling. This can come in handy during gaming, etc. However, given the heat issue with the i5 and above, you might want to keep a close eye on that. Anything above 80C is getting toasty. I am running this right now on my i3 and haven't gotten above 62C just doing Office and web browsing. My CPU is remaining pretty much pegged at or near 1.5 ghz all the time. Of course this will eat battery. I only enable it when I'm on AC. It does not start automatically so you must either start it when you want to use it or set up a rule to have it launch are startup. IMHO, I think it is better to launch manually only when you need the extra gas. ** Again, I've used this for years and never had a problem. Your computer may explode. Use at your own risk. And yes, my Surface Pro 3 does seem noticeably faster using this. Have had it on for 2 hours now and still haven't gone above 63C or even had the fan turn on for that matter - all the while remaining pegged at close to 1.5 ghz constantly.
