Came here to confirm something.

Now I am using a new CPU i5 9600KF (without IGPU) and the best SMbios for power management is iMac Pro 1.1.
It has native P steps from 0.8 to 4.6, working perfectly.

We should be using plugin type 1 yes? But not enable using clover configurator?

I already have that ticked but actually I was more unsure about this 'Plugin Type' checkbox below the SSDT section, you can either leave it blank (which is 0?) or set to 1. Should coffee lake users set it to 1?
I leave it blank.

Ok, seems most people do. I read this from another thread, was essentially the same question and Rehabman's response:

config.plist/ACPI/SSDT/Generate/PluginType (true/false): Determines whether the "plugin-type" property is injected or not. config.plist/ACPI/SSDT/PluginType (integer): Determines the value for "plugin-type" property when it is injected. The only valid value is 0 or 1. And the only setting that makes sense is 1, as there is no point in injecting "plugin-type"=0 (might as well not inject it).
