Locking the Turbo speed

So I know this may sound dumb or is totally not possible maybe, but.................aside from disabling turbo boost entirely through throttlestop, I was wondering if there was a way to just limit it?

I have the I7-10875H and when turboing it goes all the way up to 4Ghzs during gaming and while that's nice the temps are a bit too high for my liking(85-90) and while disabling turbo boost entirely helps(temps barely go past 65) it kills the performance in some games and so I was wondering if I could leave turbo boost on but simply limit the speed it goes up to, to something like 3.5Ghzs since I have found that to be the sweet spot for most games I play.

Again I have a feeling it may not be possible after what searching I've done but I thought I'd ask. Sorry if this is all a dumb question that's been answered before and for for any types btw english isn't a native language.

Try playing with the Maximum processor state percentage in the power profile you are using.

Use Intel XTU to set the maximum multiplier you want

Oh thank you, it was grayed out in here for whatever reason but I managed to limit it in throttle stop after some fiddling I found the speed shift option and setting it up there locked it to a 3.5Ghs like I wanted, I appreciate the help, now, onwards to more fiddling with the CPU lol
