My next thought was to try Intel's XTU. I got around to that today, but it would not install at all. Next is throttle stop, but

This is a cool hack however I don't think I'm brave enough to hack the BIOS either.
Can't you change this stuff in the gaming center software? Isn't ASUS working on a fix for this throttling issue?

The OP way is better, but if you dont want to tinker with BIOS you can do like I did. Here is my short guide:
"First you have to unistall Gaming Center. That is a Cancer for this Laptop. A clean windows 10 install is reccomended.
Then you just have to fallow this steps:
Skylake CPUs are only supported from ThrottleStop 8.2 forward. Just Download the latest from here:
Settings I recomend:
Unlock adjustable Voltage
First slider - all to the left until Default shows
Second Slider - Undervolt (try -100mV)
- CPU Chache
Exactly the same as CPU CORE
Check the "Save Options to INI when ThrottleStop exits"
Speed Shift Tecnology enable
Enable Speed Shift when TS Starts
After this just try higher or lower Undervolting settings. If something goes wrong just reduce the amount. Most Skylake CPU can go -150mV and more. But it depends if the are in OC or not and on the CPU itself.
Check everything with HWInfo64 and see how the voltages on the CPU change.
Use MAX Performance on the Power settings.
On the FIVR menu you can play with the multipliers on the left side. You can OC or not on demand. Just find whatever you are confortable with. For now I'm with 3.8Ghz, since the temps are fine.
I just made a shortcut to the ThrottleStop in the desktop. There is a way to make it start auto, but I havent been able to. Not really a problem."
