Thank you IgorGIV for helping me out here.That program is design to control the internal fans on laptops(i can do that from my bios,and there is no option for fan curve),i don't think it will do me any good.So....this is where you need to navigate in the registry(i'll post screenshot as well):

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4d36e968-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}

expend it and you'll see two folders there(0000 and 0001).One of them is the Intel one(see which one is and click on it),on the right scroll down until you see those two entries: PowerDpstAggressivenessLevel  and  PowerGpsAggressivenessLevel and tell me what they are set on in your system.That's it,at least for now.Thaks again man.Or.....you can right click on that folder "EXPORT" the whole file and upload it somewhere so i can investigate it better(this is not necessary,purely optional if you want to do it).

dani_tx,

I don't have such strings at all. Here is screeen-shot from my job PC (i7-4790 + GTX660).

For dani tx

Other PC (i5-7500): 

PowerDpstAggressivenessLevel - 0 

PowerGpsAggressivenessLevel - 1

If you never ask, then you will never learn

Thanks IgorGIV for the info.On your job pc no one ever bothered installing the Intel drivers,that's why.The folder from the screenshot are the Nvidia drivers only.The info from your home pc and the one that seggybop gave me are matching so i guess this is the right way in order to bypass some of the power savings.
