Hello,
I recently installed Catalina on my pc. My i5-8600k was @5Ghz in windows, and everything was fine (fixed mode). While in macOS, my clock speed ranges from 1 to 3 Ghz. Any ideas?

First make sure your you running Native CPU Power Management (Plugin Type 1)


In most situations it will automatically pick up any overclock bit if not then run this script :-


Which will patch your X86PlatformPlugin.kext with additional high and low frequencies ... be sure to select the matching SMBIOS your using from the list.

Cheers
Jay
