I think the "XCMP only" method (SSDT-PluginType1.aml) can be recommended for any build with Haswell or later CPU.
Also, it works also for versions prior to macOS.
Thank you for the answer. I'll work on that at some point today. :)

So far so good. Have been experimenting with this method for a few hours. So far PM is working excellent. On another note I'm a little confused to what the "ssdt_lpcb-9series.zip" is used for..

OK, so, did I do this correctly? The Intel Power Gadget is showing different numbers now than before - closer to reality...

0 files are before, 1 files are after...0_PM_IPG.png 1_PM_IPG.png

IPG is not labeled.
No idea, Post #1/Problem Reporting; attach all requested files
Apologies - the IPG with 5.32W is before the change.

I will upload files tomorrow when I am back in front of the Hack.

Required for AppleLPC.kext to load on 9 series motherboards. Attach IOReg.

AppleLPC.kext is loading
Another method is installed, perhaps, FakeID patch.
I noticed it was loading via kextstat. The only extras ive had added is a custom DSDT from Maldon. Other than that its a pretty vanilla install. So if AppleLPC isnt loading we use the ssdt.lpcb "for the 9 series"..
Again. PM seems to be working great. Much appreciated for this! Thank you

Files attached. I could not find a method to save out the All Messages from Console - Console->File doesn't contain a save option... If you would let me know a different way of getting what you are looking for, I'll be happy to post it.

I do not have an ACPI\DSDT folder.

Also, the IGPU is no longer in use, I'm using an nVidia 1070 now.

Bitdefender identifies DCPI Manager as containing viruses btw, so am not sure I should run that just yet...

0 prefixed files are pre-method, 1 prefixed files are post.
