Your undervolt is not working at all. It is being ignored by the CPU because the BIOS you are using has enabled a new Intel feature called Undervolt Protection. If you cannot find an option to disable Undervolt Protection in the BIOS then consider installing a previous BIOS version if you can find one.
Edit - Just had a closer look. When Undervolt Protection is enabled, you might be able to undervolt in the BIOS but you cannot use ThrottleStop to undervolt. The only way to tell if this is working properly is to run a consistent benchmark like Cinebench and watch your CPU temperature. Do a test with zero undervolt for a baseline, reboot, set an undervolt and do another test to see if there is an improvement in temperatures or performance.
It is best to undervolt in the BIOS as long as it works correctly.
There is no need to check the Speed Shift box in the TPL window or the Speed Shift EPP box on the main screen. Windows 11 can manage the EPP setting so I would recommend leaving these ThrottleStop boxes clear.
You should be able to lower the MSR power limits. Not sure what will work best for you. Find a value that gives you the right balance between maximum performance and reasonable temperatures.
IccMax looks correct now.
