If your forcing the CPU frequency to 99% with power plan it won't drop down into the lower power states.

Better to use the Windows balanced power plan and reset it to defaults to remove any changes you made. In BIOS P1 and P2 can be left alone and P0 Should be set to your maximum which I think you said was 4ghz.

Make sure your CPU settings in AI tweaker are set to auto so that they don't interfere with p-states. It's fine to use voltage offsets though.

99% max frequency locks the max frequency to whatever your p1 state is, I was just doing 99% max to test whether the p1 state I set in the bios was working. Editing p1/p2 in zenstates still works with downvolting but as soon as I set p0 to my overclock of [email protected] downvolting stops working but down clocking does.

Either way I'm not worried downvolting only saves about an extra 1w at idle because most of the time during idle cores are in a sleep state and it doesn't matter much what their awake voltage is set to.
