Hello,

I just setup my HS Hackintosh and so far all is running well without any stability hiccups or whatsoever.

Only issues that stresses my OCD is the fact that my 5.0 GHz overclock throttles way too fast in MacOS, whilst in Windows it's running the frequency very stable under load.

The 8700K doesn't even reach high temps in stress test (tried the yes command for all cores & threads) and the CPU throttles at about 4.26 GHz at 65C...

What's the reason for it? Some googling led me to Power Management but I'm not quite sure where to start and what's right for me so I can fix this issue
