ML10 v2 CPU Current Throttling

I have current throttling when running i7-4790k on default, stock settings. Is there a way to know what the current limit is or adjust BIOS to avoid throttling, assuming it is safe? I'm using Intel Extreme Tuning Utility to monitor the CPU's condition.

Greetings.

Temperature & Power requirements for the processors are set automatically & cannot be modified manually. There is a threshold set for these, when the threshold exceeds the server will automatically shut down to avoid any major damage.

Re: ML10 v2 CPU Current Throttling

Update: With a little searching online, I have updated my BIOS to performance settings for the processor and changed my overclocking settings in XTU to a much higher amperage limit at about 300A according to XTU. Generally I don't get current throttled now but under high load I now get thermal throttled at 90-100C which is using all 4 cores at around 100% at 4.2GHz Turbo. I think I'm mostly satisfied with the result as long as this won't fry my device. I'll ask for more support if I get stuck with something.

Thank you for the update.

About overclocking the CPU, please find the below note from Intel;

Altering clock frequency or voltage may damage or reduce the useful life of the processor and other system components, and may reduce system stability and performance. Product warranties may not apply if the processor is operated beyond its specifications.

Check with the manufacturers of system and components for additional details. For more information, visit: https://www.intel.in/content/www/in/en/gaming/overclocking-intel-processors.html.
