Use at your own risk

This patch does the same thing that Throttlestop does, and all other power limits are still in place (Battery, Thermal, etc...)

Can you modify anything else with this, like core voltage offsets? Windows 11 now blocks access to the registers needed for Throttlestop to work when VBS is enabled, so I was thinking if there were other ways to set it earlier in the boot process. Also be nice for Linux and macOS as well. If it's not possible, there might be other ways (PowerMonkey looks interesting for example).

As long as you know the address and values, you can use this trick (in theory) to modify anything.
I got the address for this power lock from the techpowerup forum and just mapped it to 2 acpi variables. Making this work @boot is easy, just define a dummy device and set the values at _INI, but the complicated part is if the values change after wake. That's where I had to replace other methods and inject the new code.
If the OC rename patches work with windows/linux, then these should also work. (I don't chainload other OS's from OC so I haven't tested it)
I also know you can load extra ssdt's in windows boot, but never tried it.
Windows 11 lasted about a month in my system, but I've since rolled back to 10. I found I lost more than I gained with the "upgrade"

Power monkey looks very interesting...

I'll definitely take a look, see if I can find it with RWEverything. It certainly does change after S3 sleep, but I already hook sleep/wake anyways to fix other things up. I'll definitely try it and see if that works, thanks

A friend gave me an Apple Thunderbolt display and I tested it and it works!
I switched the Thunderbolt mode to legacy in Bios and I'm getting video hotplug support.
All other extra devices from the display work (USB/Ethernet/Firewire800/Speaker/Camera) if plugged on boot.

That is insane. It should not work as Titan Ridge is not supposed to work with TH1 devices. Maybe this machine has Alpine Ridge afterall?

AFAIK it is Alpine Ridge. (I even injected Alpine Ridge info in SSDT)

Never mind it is Titan Ridge
