Reduce Thermal Throttle and reduce stress on the battery

Install Intel XTU, Disable Turbo Boost Short Power Max Enable, Turbo Boost Power Max 39W, Turbo Boost Power Time Window 4 Sec, change Ratio Multiplier to 30x(cinebench R15 CPU 953, considering my old 6 core/12 thread Xeon x5675 scored 951 at  4.3 GHz at much higher TDP)
