NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade throttlestop -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade throttlestop -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

Since a lot of energy is required to keep modern hardware running at full potential, managing resources can save up a lot of power. Designed especially for laptop users, ThrottleStop is an easy to use program that can adjust the performance of your Intel CPU according to the programs you use.

Normally, manufacturers integrate throttling schemes into their products, but if you want to overclock your CPU, this might be the tool for you. However, exceeding the power capabilities of your adapter can result in damaging your PC, so you have to make sure you know what you are doing.

ThrottleStop automatically detects your CPU type and speed. The software monitors four CPU performance profiles: optimized performance, gaming, Internet navigation and battery support. The profiles are customizable and you can switch between them by clicking on the corresponding number.

For each throttling type, you can adjust several options. 'Clock Modulation' and its variant, 'Chipset Clock Modulation' allow you to slow down your CPU or make it run at 100% of its designed capability.

Also, you can set the multiplier value for your processor. For example, reducing this value results in a CPU lower speed; this can reduce power usage when the laptop is running on battery. Furthermore, if your processor is Core 2 based, you are able to adjust its VID or voltage values.

With ThrottleStop, you can disable the turbo boost feature of your CPU, as well as protect your computer from overheating using the 'BD PROCHOT' option.

You can change various other parameters, such as the turbo ratio limits for each core and the package power limits. The current state of each CPU thread is displayed in the monitoring panel, so you are able to view the CPU performance parameters anytime you want. Furthermore, the program can create a throttling log file and save it for later reference.

All in all, battery monitoring and customizable performance profiles are features that make ThrottleStop a handy application for laptop CPU throttling and overclocking. Only use it if you have a strong documentation, because sloppy handling can literally fry your CPU.
