Your profile indicates you don't have HD4000. KernelPm=true is already selected in the plist you mention.

The fan behavior is driven from the ACPI patches you use, BIOS settings, and the CPU temperature.
Doesn't i7-3520M have HD 4000? I will edit it to AMD but what should I use for base plist? Is "config_HD4000_1600x900.plist" 7-series? Also is there any Intel GPU specific in the plist other than in Graphics section?

http://ark.intel.com/products/64893/Intel-Core-i7-3520M-Processor-4M-Cache-up-to-3_60-GHz

So when using -xcpm I can leave KernelPm=true, ACPI DropOem=false and C/Pstates=false. Does using DSDT/SSDT later change anything?

Also why do I have to use -xcpm with i7-3520M and QM77, shouldn't it work without it?

Yes, of course. But that doesn't mean the OEM enables it. Your profile indicates you have only AMD Radeon HD 7570M, yet you seem to be using HD4000. I assume your profile/Graphics is wrong.

So when using -xcpm I can leave KernelPm=true,
KernelPm=true required when using XCPM on any computer that has locked MSR 0xE2.

ACPI DropOem=false and C/Pstates=false. Does using DSDT/SSDT later change anything?

Real Macs don't use it with Ivy CPUs.

I was just editing my post when you replied, didn't first understood you meant the AMD GPU but yeah I know Intel is not in use just wondering what plist to use, see my edited previous post.

So -xcpm is required also with Ivy CPU on mackintosh and i'm not an exception?

Now I'm really not sure on your hardware configuration...

Post output of 'lspci -nn' in Linux Terminal.

Apple does not use -xcpm with Ivy CPUs.

Some, if you get the "p-state stepper error"/panic.
