Can you (based on experience) recommend a Windows 10 version that doesn't take much RAM and doesn't have much background processes which increase the temperature?

You probably need a new laptop if you are asking this question, all versions run on the same kernel, it’s simply people removing appx objects and disabling services. Please just buy a decent machine rather than hobbling along on hardware that is not suitable for the OS, if your laptop is overheating either the cooling is insufficient/needs repasting or the cpu is so old it’s being pegged at 100% continually

based and honest to god response, I can understand people on an extreme budget, but some people genuinely do need a reality check if they're considering this as a 100% serious long term option for work/school/whatever, rather than as a hobby or for shits n giggles

the laptop is not that old, it is a recent laptop

The strange thing that

When I do a pressure test from by aida64 software, it didn't get so hot

But, while these processes are running, it gets overheating for moments

Although it must be over the temperature while aida64 test is on

That is why I got doubts about that windows version, ltsc 2019

recent doesent necessary mean good, a basic list of specs would help as we could be talking about an atom based machine with 4gb ram and Emmc storage or a core i9 with NVMe and 32Gb ram, it’s all relative

it's either:

1). ProcHot (overheating processor signal) being triggered like you said

2). The all-core frequencies being so low, that the processor doesn't run hot enough compared to one or two cores running at an extremely high frequency with high voltages/power (and thus higher heat output compared to other cores

3). Very high PL2 short burst power limit (related to point 2), which will run for a specific period of time (20 seconds to 30 seconds, give or take)

This behavior is also related and linked to "turbo boost" and Intel's new "thermal velocity boost" introduced since 10th gen, since the processor will use a high amount of power for that amount of time (and give you high bursty level of performance), then go back to PL1 (long term power limit, usually lower than short term power) or even lower power draw & clock frequencies if temperatures reach "boiling point" (the cause of point 1), or the VRMs start throttling power to the CPU due to the max power being reached, high temps, or due to manufacturer defined firmware/software override settings

W 10 LTSC Enterprise.

no difference just long term servicing CSP

, you can turn off updates there. Also many things are ectomised compared to regular versions, therefore less resources used by system.

that is just retarded, why on earth turn off updates 🤦‍♂️ using a dodgy copy just increases the risk to the user and is stupid beyond belief, get the right hardware and run the OS as intended

Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC.



I h a t e it
Look at a previous post

Windows 10 LTSC 2019

I was trying to find the reason why the laptop is overheating and shutting down without high pressure, and with clean fans and new Arctica mx-4 thermal paste!

1- I opened some tabs in Google chrome

2- I opened HWMonitor to see the temperature

3- I opened task manager to see what uses much CPU

4- temperature was stable at 47°C

5- I left the laptop and was watching the temperature and usage

6- after minutes, the (Antimalware Service Executabable) used around 50% of the CPU and the temperature went to 99°C and was about to shut down!

7- that can also happen but because of (windows modules installer) or (NET. Runtime optimisation service)

What are these things? And what is going on? Why they did that and heating up?

Home will be less intensive. But I suggest tpfancontrol to better control your temps

It's the same core in all versions. Difference between Home/Pro is zero.

It's not Windows 10 but i recommend linux 😄

Home edition if it fullfill your requirements.

Have you tried applying new and better thermal paste on the processor? Also, make sure the fan is clear of dust.

Also, check out this vid. Making a slow computer fast will accomplish making it cooler too. The best is at 14:37
