I have been struggling for a while to solve the CPU Power Management and finally found the solution. This MOBO requires some patches that I was using in Clover and finally found how to “translate” those patches to Opencore. Followed the guide in Dortania. I am currently running High Sierra since my GPU is Nvidia.

I have also discovered that enabling TRIM makes the booting slower so I disabled it.

Be aware of shortening the lifespan of your SSD because of disabled TRIM.

What if the SSD being used has it's own garbage collection and trim routines in firmware?

It may still make a difference. I have a MX500 without TRIM enabled for one year and its lifespan was reduced 2 times faster.

You know there had to be someone trying not enabling that...
I still have not enable TRIM back. My SSD is Kingston SSDNOW 300 Series V, I've read that since it has “Sandforce” feature it does not require TRIM.

You could still not enable. Just wanted to say that Micron also claims there is TRIM for MX500, but the lifespan is still shortened by macOS with TRIM disabled.
