Intel mobile CPUs now have a really low base frequency and a high Turbo Boost freq, e.g. i5 2.4~4.1 GHz.

Turbo at 3.8+ makes it go all the way up to 100°C. Using 'Turbo Boost Switcher' to disable TB makes the freq too low at 2.4.

Is there any way to limit CPU freq at some intermediate value like 3.2?

As I understand the intel feature it's on or off. There is no in between setting. Also running at above the base frequency will cause the CPU temp to creep up slowly.
