Hello all,
Anyone knows if it's reliable to use "plugin-type"=1 to enable power management via native CPU SSDTs on Haswell systems? Or it's better to stuck with SSDT.aml generated by ssdtPRGen.sh script?

Evidence suggests you need both "plugin-type"=1 inject and APSS, ACST, etc.

I see... that means I still have to use the SSDT generated by the script.

I landed on this thread when trying to diagnose "vanilla" PowerManagement for my old Xeon E5450 on a Gigabyte GA-G31M-S2L (Socket 771->775 conversion). Setting PluginType=1 in Clover r4439 config.plist enabled SpeedStep. Prior to enabling PluginType=1, I had installed NullCPUPowerManagement.kext. Now that PluginType=1 is set, I no longer need NullCPUPM.kext.

I don't understand why, but for others who land here, PluginType=1 may solve power management issues on your legacy systems.
