As expected the two security updates bumping our versions up to 17B1003 have no ill-effect on our setups. All on High Sierra should definitely do the updates asap.

I'm trying this now. It dips down to 0.8GHz for about a second when I unplug the AC adapter, then goes back to idling at 1.3GHz.


Mine seems to work fine, last night I was testing plugged and it worked great dipped down to 0.8 and hovered there pretty long. Then today I'm unplugged about my day and just checked with Intel Power Gadget and it's going down and hitting plenty of different speeds between 0.8GHz and 1.3GHz. 


You can use CPUFriend by PMheart instead of manually patching X86PlatformPlugin. 


Ohh this is cool, so it stays persistent through incremental upgrades. I am a stupid man and didn't back up the original, so I'll have to wait till next update to try it out, I'm an idiot. Oh I do have an original on my desktop rig, you think I could just copy it over from there? This file is the same in all installations right?

10.13.1 working good here, you'll have to update your permissions and rebuild kext cache to fix keyboard brightness. Update your lilu and plugins as well.


A cool discovery over by sbeanie at tmac site. He got our processors to idle at 800MHz instead of 1.3GHz. Don't believe we are allowed to link there but very easy to find in KNNSpeed's thread over there. Basic overview below.


Use piker alpha's vectors script, make sure you select the correct board/smbios you're using in my case 14,3.



Don't reboot and rebuild kextcache "sudo kextcache -i /", reboot and then enjoy lower idle speeds.


For me it worked just from doing the above but Rehabman's advice was to not use ssdtPRgen.sh as it's unnecessary and only SSDT-PluginType1.aml. This option can be enabled in your clover config.plist with clover configurator in the SSDT section.

Are brightness  KEYS working (without having to hold Fn) for 10.13.1?  I can't get them to work, could someone post working ssdt-brt6 code.



Rebuild kext cache and repair permissions, reboot. I had no issues.

Thanks RM, I may give that a go later, I just reinstalled the original one attached to this guide and now everything works again. Anything you can share from personally using that version instead?


For others if they are interested in benchmarks. CPU and OpenCL from Geekbench.

Archive has files I'm currently using, config needs smbios serial generated.

Essentially I'm using the same files as KNNSpeeds, minus some kexts and ssdt. I removed some kexts b/c of native support for our CPU/iGPU. Also I don't really need the fan and hwmonitor stuff so I removed those as well.
