This guide applies to both the GA-EX58 and GA-X58A series of Gigabyte MBs.
Differences are noted in Audio (item 14) and Network (item 18).

I've made my Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5 functionally as close to a single processor MacPro4,1 as possible, and in some ways it's better than the Apple hardware that can't be over clocked, has only four memory slots instead of six, has only one analog line out instead of four, and lacks external SATA ports.
My 4 Ghz Geekbench score of 14124 is higher than that of the 2.26 GHz dual processor Apple hardware MacPro4,1.

Using a DSDT.aml can bring you closer to actual Apple hardware functionality;
- No CMOS reset after reboot without ElliottForceLegacyRTC.kext or similar (CMOS reset during wake as of 10.7.0, see item 24 below for a fix)
- Audio without additional kexts (ALC889A audio option A with 10.6.x)
- Sleep using native power management without SleepEnabler.kext
- Lower CPU temperatures using native power management without NullCPUPowerManagement.kext
- Turbo plus one clock ratio
- Shutdown without EvOreboot.kext or similar
- Enable the power button to sleep and wake the computer

Native power management will be seen in kernel.log during boot;
kernel[0]: AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementClient: ready
kernel[0]: AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement: Turbo Ratios 1112
kernel[0]: AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement: initialization complete

What `Turbo Ratios 1112' means is that one core will clock to turbo plus one, when the other three cores aren't being utilized.
For a 2.66 GHz i7 920 or Xeon W3520 the multiplier for turbo is 21, and this will give BCLK times 22.
Page three of Gigabyte's corei7_x58_bios_guide.pdf alludes to this functionality.

Note: There is a bug in 10.6.8 that shows incorrect turbo ratios, but it's fixed as of 10.7.0.

MSR Tools can be used to see the CPU speed fluctuations (32 bit).
Use it with caution, as there is a chance that it will lock up and cause a system hang if force quit.
The following example is with an i7 920 or Xeon W3520 CPU, BCLK frequency changed from 133 to 185, and CPU clock ratio set to the standard 20 with turbo enabled.
x20;
Max Frequency: 3.70 GHz
Actual Frequency: 3.70 GHz (100%)
x21;
Max Frequency: 3.70 GHz
Actual Frequency: 3.89 GHz (105%)
x22;
Max Frequency: 3.70 GHz
Actual Frequency: 4.07 GHz (110%)

The mark-i application can also be used (32 and 64 bit), see post 692;
http://www.insanelym...c=196771&st=691

Speed step;

This will reduce clock speed as low as a x12 multiplier under idle conditions.
Enabling native power management with DSDT modifications will bring lower CPU temperatures, and speed step will go even lower, but only if using the Dynamic Vcore (DVID) feature of the BIOS.
DVID was added in version F9m of the GA-EX58-UD5 BIOS, check the Gigabyte BIOS beta thread for when it was added in the other models.

10.6.0 and 10.6.1:
Use MP41SpeedStepFix.kext.

10.6.0 through 10.6.3:
Save a copy of /System/Library/Extensions/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext, add the PLimitDict and StepDataDict sections from /System/Library/Extensions/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin.kext/Contents/Resources/MacPro3_1.plist to the same location in MacPro4_1.plist, and change the two key values from MacPro3,1 to MacPro4,1.
Watch the OS update it's extensions cache and any helper partitions in system.log and restart.

10.6.3 with Mac Pro Audio Update 1.1, and 10.6.4 through current:
Apple has enabled speed step in an updated MacPro4_1.plist.

To confirm, use ioreg to look at IOService:/AppleACPIPlatformExpert/CPU0@0/AppleACPICPU/ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin.
You will see CPUPLimit with a value of 0x0, a different value if it's not activated, or not there at all if not enabled.

Idle temperature comparison:
Idle CPU temperatures at 4.3 GHz (turbo disabled) and 19 C ambient; 42-46 C
Idle CPU temperatures at 4.3 GHz (turbo disabled) with a speed step MacPro4_1.plist, and 19 C ambient; 42-46 C
Idle CPU temperatures at 4.3 GHz (turbo disabled) with a speed step MacPro4_1.plist, DVID, and 19 C ambient; 35-39 C

ECC memory;

If you have a Xeon CPU, you can use error correcting code (ECC) memory, just like the Apple hardware uses.
Gigabyte doesn't list this as supported, but it works fine.

Create a Memtest86+ boot CD and it will show the following with a Xeon CPU and ECC memory;
Chipset : NHM IMC (ECC : Detect / Correct) Scrub+

It will show the following with a Xeon or i7 CPU and non ECC memory;
Chipset : NHM IMC (ECC : Disabled)

Set the following in /System/Library/SystemProfiler/SPMemoryReporter.spreporter/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/Localizable.strings to correct the cosmetic misreporting of ECC as disabled in System Profiler:Hardware:Memory;
"dimm_type" = "Type";"DDR3"="DDR3 ECC";
"ecc_disabled" = "Enabled";

For confirmation that it's working, here's what you'll see in kernel.log if a cosmic ray flips a bit, or if you've over clocked your memory improperly;
Aug 13 18:23:06 mac05 kernel[0]: AppleTyMCEDriver ReadCorrectable : Detected 1 errors on channel 2 dimm 1 package 0
Aug 13 18:23:16 mac05 kernel[0]: AppleTyMCEDriver ReadCorrectable : Detected 1 errors on channel 1 dimm 0 package 0
Aug 13 18:23:19 mac05 kernel[0]: AppleTyMCEDriver ReadCorrectable : Detected 1 errors on channel 1 dimm 0 package 0

DSDT modifications;

The easiest way to create a DSDT.aml is to reboot without a DSDT.aml, using fakesmc.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext to not KP, ElliottForceLegacyRTC.kext to not reset the CMOS, and then use the DSDTSE application to extract the dsdt.dsl, edit it and compile it into dsdt.aml.
Another way is to reboot without a DSDT.aml, with the three kexts, and get an unmodified dsdt.dat by running getDSDT.sh.
Run `./iasl -d dsdt.dat', edit dsdt.dsl with vi or similar, then get dsdt.aml from running `./iasl -ta dsdt.dsl'.
Either way, copy dsdt.aml to the bootloader's Extra folder as DSDT.aml.
The compiler changes 0x00 to Zero, 0x01 to One, removes some comments, shortens some hex, etc., so you will see differences when comparing dsdt.dsl and it's dsdt.aml in DSDTSE.

Save the clean dsdt.dsl derived from each BIOS that you use.
If the clean dsdt.dsl derived from the new BIOS is the same, then no modification to your original modified dsdt.dsl is needed.
GA-EX58-UD5 BIOS F9e added support for CPUs with more than four cores, and F9m added DVID.
Both resulted in additional code in the dsdt.dsl derived from them.
Also keep in mind that a BIOS setting could change the derived dsdt.dsl.
However, I've only seen the sleep setting do this so far.
When you derive dsdt.dsl from a BIOS set to S1(POS) sleep you get;
Name (\_S1, Package (0x04)
and
Name (\SS3, Package (0x04)
and
...
When you derive dsdt.dsl from a BIOS set to S3(STR) sleep you get;
Name (\SS1, Package (0x04)
and
Name (\_S3, Package (0x04)
and
...

If you have a GA-EX58-UD5 with an i7 920 or Xeon W3520, i7 930 or Xeon W3530, i7 950 or Xeon W3550, or i7 975 or Xeon W3580, you can use BIOS F9m through F12 and the attached DSDT.aml files (do 6 and 7).
or
If you have a GA-EX58-UD5 and you are using at least C2RC5 trunk revision 192 you can use BIOS F9m through F13U and the attached standard PR scope DSDT.aml files (don't do 6, do 7 and 20).
or
Make your own if have a different GA-EX58 or GA-X58A MB.

Is it possible to use a DSDT.aml created from a dsdt.dsl from a different MB?
No, because there are significant differences in the unmodified dsdt.dsl file from each GA-EX58 model.
GA-X58A-UD7 rev 1.0 and GA-X58A-UD3R rev 1.0 differ only in the address base in `Device (PCI0.EXPL)'.
GA-X58A-UD3R rev 2.0 is significantly different from rev 1.0.
GA-X58A-UD5 rev 2.0 is significantly different from rev 1.0.
GA-X58A-UD3R rev 2.0 is significantly different from GA-X58A-UD5 rev 2.0.
I'm looking for an unmodified dsdt.dsl from the following boards (*);
GA-EX58-EXTREME (bulier - F12)
GA-EX58-UD5 (me)
GA-EX58-UD4P (MowgliBook - various)
GA-EX58-UD4 *
GA-EX58-DS4 *
GA-EX58-UD3R revision 1.7 *
GA-EX58-UD3R revision 1.6 (smc13)
GA-EX58-UD3R revision 1.0 (callumj09 - F9)
GA-EX58-UD3R-SLI *
GA-X58A-UD9 *
GA-X58A-UD7 revision 2.0 *
GA-X58A-UD7 revision 1.0 (semendemon - ?)
GA-X58A-UD5 revision 2.0 (newnekton1 - FA)
GA-X58A-UD5 revision 1.0 (gunnerfan - ?)
GA-X58A-UD3R revision 2.0 (howboutjoe - FA)
GA-X58A-UD3R revision 1.0 (Lyle M - F2c)

The code in the following code boxes may loose their formatting with copy and paste.
The attached DSDT archives have both dsdt.dsl and DSDT.aml files.
Open the dsdt.dsl (or do `./iasl -d DSDT.aml' to get dsdt.dsl), then copy and paste from that.

1A. To fix the Local0 compile error, add quotation marks to the `Scope (\_SI)' section.
The dsdt.dsl won't compile without this modification.

original:

Scope (\_SI)
{
Method (_MSG, 1, NotSerialized)
{
Store (Local0, Local0)
}

Method (_SST, 1, NotSerialized)
{
Store (Local0, Local0)
}
}

modified:

Scope (\_SI)
{
Method (_MSG, 1, NotSerialized)
{
Store ("Local0", Local0)
}

Method (_SST, 1, NotSerialized)
{
Store ("Local0", Local0)
}
}

1B. (added 20110901, thanks to aikidoka25 and JUN Ho) Newer iasl versions will have a compilation error with the `0xFFF00000, // Length' line, change it to `0xFEB00000, // Length'.

2. To fix the _WAK compile warning, add to the end of the `Method (\_WAK, 1, NotSerialized)' section.

original:

Notify (\_SB.PCI0.USB0, 0x00)
Notify (\_SB.PCI0.USB1, 0x00)
Notify (\_SB.PCI0.USB2, 0x00)
Notify (\_SB.PCI0.USB3, 0x00)
Notify (\_SB.PCI0.USB4, 0x00)
Notify (\_SB.PCI0.USB5, 0x00)
}

modified:

Notify (\_SB.PCI0.USB0, 0x00)
Notify (\_SB.PCI0.USB1, 0x00)
Notify (\_SB.PCI0.USB2, 0x00)
Notify (\_SB.PCI0.USB3, 0x00)
Notify (\_SB.PCI0.USB4, 0x00)
Notify (\_SB.PCI0.USB5, 0x00)
Return (Package (0x02)
{
Zero,
Zero
})
}

3. To solve the CMOS issue that resets the BIOS back to default, in `Device (RTC)' change the the two instances of 0x04 to 0x02.
RTC stands for Real Time Clock.
There's a good explanation of why the IO segment's length needs to be reduced at netkas's site.
The ACPI (Advanced Configuration & Power Interface) specifications are at http://www.acpi.info/.
I'd suggest looking at ACPIspec40.pdf, although Gigabyte seems to be 1.0 in DSDT;
* Revision 0x01 **** ACPI 1.0, no 64-bit math support
There's also some good information at http://www.acpica.org/documentation/.

Note: CMOS reset during wake as of 10.7.0, see item 24 below for a fix.

original:

Device (RTC)
{
Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0B00"))
Name (ATT0, ResourceTemplate ()
{
IO (Decode16,
0x0070, // Range Minimum
0x0070, // Range Maximum
0x00, // Alignment
0x04, // Length
)
IRQNoFlags ()
{8}
})
Name (ATT1, ResourceTemplate ()
{
IO (Decode16,
0x0070, // Range Minimum
0x0070, // Range Maximum
0x00, // Alignment
0x04, // Length
)
})

modified:

Device (RTC)
{
Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0B00"))
Name (ATT0, ResourceTemplate ()
{
IO (Decode16,
0x0070, // Range Minimum
0x0070, // Range Maximum
0x00, // Alignment
0x02, // Length
)
IRQNoFlags ()
{8}
})
Name (ATT1, ResourceTemplate ()
{
IO (Decode16,
0x0070, // Range Minimum
0x0070, // Range Maximum
0x00, // Alignment
0x02, // Length
)
})

4. To allow layout-id, etc. insertion modifications to DSDT, add the following before the `Method (\_WAK, 1, NotSerialized)' section.
 

Method (DTGP, 5, NotSerialized)
{
If (LEqual (Arg0, Buffer (0x10)
{
/* 0000 */ 0xC6, 0xB7, 0xB5, 0xA0, 0x18, 0x13, 0x1C, 0x44,
/* 0008 */ 0xB0, 0xC9, 0xFE, 0x69, 0x5E, 0xAF, 0x94, 0x9B
}))
{
If (LEqual (Arg1, One))
{
If (LEqual (Arg2, Zero))
{
Store (Buffer (One)
{
0x03
}, Arg4)
Return (One)
}

If (LEqual (Arg2, One))
{
Return (One)
}
}
}

Store (Buffer (One)
{
0x00
}, Arg4)
Return (Zero)
}

5. The BIOS has capability for up to 16 threads, but only 8 and 12 thread CPUs have been released to date.
For CPU0 through CPU7 for the 8 thread CPUs, or CPU0 through CPUB for the 12 thread i7 980 or Xeon W3680, make changes to pass the CStates to OS X.
This is only needed when clocked over a certain point (148x20 or 2.96 GHz for a i7 920 or Xeon W3520 CPU), as the OS doesn't see the CStates available to it, even with all energy saving options enabled in the BIOS's Advanced CPU Features section.
If you convert the hexadecimal you will find that the PStates represent the default clock of your CPU, but it won't down clock your CPU if over clocked, and is what the BIOS makes available to the OS at default or over clock.

If you have a different CPU your specific PStates can be obtained from running getSSDT5.sh to get SSDT-0.dsl, or from using DSDTSE.
Do this after rebooting at default clock with fakesmc.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext to not KP, ElliottForceLegacyRTC.kext to not reset the CMOS, EIST, C1E and C3/C6/C7 States enabled, and no DSDT.aml.

Why do you need to add specific PStates for your CPU when it's the CStates that drop out above a certain point?
It's because when DropSSDT=yes (item 6) is used, you are telling the bootloader to drop both CStates and PStates and instead read them from the DSDT, and if you had only added CStates to the DSDT there would be no PStates.

To confirm, use ioreg to look at IOService:/AppleACPIPlatformExpert/CPU0@0/AppleACPICPU/ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin.
You will see the CState's CSTinfo and the PState's PerformanceStateArray.

Note: CSTInfo has been renamed to AICPMVers as of 10.6.8.

Note:
Don't add this section if you are using at least C2RC5 trunk revision 192, as it will make CStates available to the OS (don't do 6, do 7 and 21).

6. To make the CPU changes work correctly, add the following to com.apple.Boot.plist (don't add if you're using at least C2RC5 trunk revision 192);

<key>DropSSDT</key>
<string>yes</string>

7. Identify your machine as MacPro4,1 in smbios.plist (not needed if you're using at least C2RC5 trunk revision 313).

<key>SMproductname</key>
<string>MacPro4,1</string>

8A. Use OrangeIconFix.kext to fix the orange drives seen in the Finder (not needed as of 10.7.0).

8B. To make the drives show correctly as Intel ICH10 AHCI in System Profiler's Serial-ATA section, add the following to the `Device (IDE1)' section (put above `Device (PRIM)').

Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)
{
Store (Package (0x02)
{
"device-id",
Buffer (0x04)

}
}, Local0)
DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))
Return (Local0)
}

9. Modify the `Device (PX40)' section so that AppleLPC.kext loads.
This is needed for native power management, and for the `Start up automatically after a power failure' option to appear in Energy Saver.
This must be checked or sleep will shut the computer down instead, unless 17 is also done.

The following is seen from running `OSX86 Tools Utility:View PCI Device/Vendor ID' on GA-EX58-UD5.
00:1f.0 ISA bridge [0601]: Intel Corporation 82801JIR (ICH10R) LPC Interface Controller [8086:3a16]

The device-id should be one that's in /System/Library/Extensions/AppleLPC.kext/Contents/Info.plist (<string>pci8086,3a18</string>).

}

12. Change HID to CID in the `Device (PWRB)' section to enable the power button to sleep and wake the computer.
In BIOS set `ACPI Suspend Type' to `S3(STR)', this is the lower power suspend to RAM state.
Also set `Soft-Off by PWR-BTTN' to `Delay 4 Sec.', so less than four seconds will sleep (S3) or wake, and more than four seconds will shut down (S5).
`Allow power button to put the computer to sleep' must also be checked in Energy Saver.

13. Modify fakesmc.kext/Contents/Info.plist in two places with MacPro4,1 specific information (1.30f3 and smc-napa changed to 1.39f5 and smc-thurley).

15. Having the driver for Temperature Monitor installed prevents idle sleep.
Setting `Avoid accessing drive sensors if user inactive:' in Temperature Monitor:Preferences:General:Disk Saver to a value greater than the `Computer sleep' value in Energy Saver doesn't change the behavior.
Thanks to kdawg for noting that iStat can be used instead, and that it doesn't prevent idle sleep if `Monitor S.M.A.R.T drive temps' is unchecked in the sensor section.
Various DVD drives prevent idle sleep, the solution may be to either uncheck `Put the hard disk(s) to sleep when possible' in Energy Saver, or to leave a DVD in the drive.
Another solution is to add the PenntNeu-script RIP.app in Accounts:<user>:Login Items.
To make this work I had to change main.scpt, although this has worked for others unmodified.

19. Network IOBuiltin options.

Some applications need en0 to be recognized as IOBuiltin=Yes, and there are at least four ways to fix this.

A. Add the following in org.chameleon.Boot.plist.

<key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
<string>yes</string>

or

D. Add an ethernet EFI string that contains the built-in key with a value of 1 to com.apple.Boot.plist, see ~pcwiz's topic at http://www.insanelym...owtopic=114349.
However, you will need to run `gfxutil -f pex4' instead of `gfxutil -f ethernet' in Terminal to determine DevicePath.

20. (added 20100426) Video options.

A. Video is most simply enabled in org.chameleon.Boot.plist.

21. (added 20100726) Add the following to org.chameleon.Boot.plist (was com.apple.Boot.plist) if you're using at least C2RC5 trunk revision 192;

<key>GenerateCStates</key>
<string>yes</string>

22. (added 20100830) 10.6.4 through current will severely decrease NVIDIA GPU performance by causing it's three clocks to always run at level 0 low power mode.

Edit the AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext/Contents/Info.plist's MacPro4,1 section and change Vendor10deDevice05e2 to Vendor10deDevice05e3.
The 05e3 part is for a GTX 285, see nvclock0.8b5_7-darwin/src/backend/info.c (link below) for others.
This is to allow the GPU to have power management; level 2 high power when stressed, and down clocking to level 0 when not stressed (~10C lower).
The GPU clock will be at level 0 after sleep and wake, but the shader and memory clocks will temporarily be stuck at level 2.
However, if load is applied and then reduced, shader and memory will return to level 0.

The following solutions cause the three clocks to always run at level 2;
Use MacPro3,1 in smbios.plist.
or
Delete AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext.
or
Use the AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext from 10.6.3.

Temperatures and clock speeds can be seen with nvclock, and for lower temperatures it's recommended to set fanspeed mode to auto with `nvclock -F auto -f', which needs to be set again after sleep and wake;
http://www.projectos...?showtopic=1246

Thanks to jhrfc for automating this so it will start in auto at boot, and switch back to auto after sleep (post 119);

Over clocking;

These are my settings for a 2.66 GHz Xeon W3520 with 6x2GB 1333 MHz memory.
Up to 3.7 GHz all voltages can be left at auto.
`About This Mac' only shows up to 4.3 GHz.
Edit /System/Library/CoreServices/loginwindow.app/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/AboutThisMac.strings if you want it to show over that;
//"ABOUT_BOX_SINGLE_PROCESSOR_FIELD_FORMAT" = "%@";
"ABOUT_BOX_SINGLE_PROCESSOR_FIELD_FORMAT" = "4.4 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon";

At 4 GHz maximum Geekbench score is 14124 with memory x8 at maximum stable speed of 1600 MHz:

There's a Gigabyte bug that can cause a network port to cease functioning.
Shut the machine down, turn off the power supply, press and hold the CMOS button until the light goes out.
Start the machine, press the tab key at the logo screen, then the delete key at the post screen, then in the main menu press the F12 key to select your saved BIOS settings.

Here's how to tell if a kext is both 32 bit (i386) and 64 bit (x86_64);
[mac05:~] me% file RealtekR1000SL/Contents/MacOS/RealtekR1000SL

Configuration with 10.9.x;

Placed FakeSMC.kext in /System/Library/Extensions/.

Placed modified RealtekR1000SL.kext in /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/ (item 19B).

Placed LegacyHDA.kext in /System/Library/Extensions/ (item 14D from post 511, HDEF layout-id 12 in DSDT, black jack audio out).

Patched /System/Library/Extensions/AppleRTC.kext (item 24).

Modified AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext/Contents/Info.plist (item 22).

To disable the automatic wake-for-network-access every two hours, I changed in /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder.plist from this;

<key>ProgramArguments</key>

<key>ProgramArguments</key>
<array>
<string>/usr/sbin/mDNSResponder</string>
<string>-launchd</string>
<string>-DisableSleepProxyClient</string>
</array>

...then caused mDNSResponder to reread the file;
# killall -HUP mDNSResponder

Warning: Using demong1's modified MacPro4_1.plist, then applying an Apple Software Update like Bonjour Update 2010-001 can break things so that you have no mouse or keyboard control at the login GUI.
I traced the problem to the use of tabs instead of spaces, this can be seen with running `cat -vet MacPro4_1.plist' in Terminal.
In kernel.log, the `Kext com.apple.driver.ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin failed to load' error was seen with Root set for the OSBundleRequired in the Info.plist for ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin.kext and IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext, and `virtual bool IOHIDEventSystemUserClient::initWithTask(task*, void*, UInt32): Client task not privileged to open IOHIDSystem for mapping memory' was seen with Safe-Boot (default) set for OSBundleRequired.

Request;
I neglected to backup my original Gigabyte GV-N285UD-1GH/F1 (nvclock: 62.00.50.00.01, ioreg: pci1458,34c9) BIOS before I flashed with one from EVGA for some tests.
If anyone with this card has some time, would you dump your BIOS with nvflash so that I can restore to my original BIOS?
Thanks in advance.

New sound assertion message seen in 10.6.2's kernel.log;
kernel[0]: Sound assertion "0 == pciVendorProductID" failed in "/SourceCache/AppleHDA/AppleHDA-179.1.4/AppleHDAController/AppleHDAController.cpp" at line 2682 goto Exit

Fix by removing the BuiltInHDA key section from ALC889a.kext/Contents/Info.plist.

Thanks to tmongkol for this fix.

Oh, hey! 'bout time they 'approved' this topic! :D

Look at all this info! Great resource. Good stuff, d00d!
This ought to be stickied or, at least, kept on top.

Now, I haven't gone through all of this, so bear with my noobie question: How much of this is GA-58 specific and how much is board agnostic? Some I can see as specific to our board, like audio, as it requires proper kext and layout ID and pin configs (pin configs not listed - pulled from kext, I assume?).

As for adding it to a script. Yeah. Right now, I got too many irons in the fire. A bit at a time...

Keep up the good work!

regards,
MAJ

Thanks guys for the kind words.

The DSDT derived from a Gigabyte X58 chipset BIOS is significantly different from an ASUS X58 one for example.
I assume there are also some differences within the Gigabyte X58 range itself (UD3, UD4, UD5, Extreme and UD7).

Setting `"PinConfigurations", Buffer (Zero) {}' in DSDT allows the PinConfigurations to be picked up from the ConfigData of LayoutID 12 in ALC889a.kext/Contents/Info.plist.

The result can be seen with the IORegistryExplorer GUI, or by running ioreg;
IOService:/AppleACPIPlatformExpert/PCI0@0/AppleACPIPCI/HDEF@1B

d00d, you shouldn't include p-states (method _PSS) in your tutorial, they are CPU dependant, not MB!! See here http://www.insanelym...howtopic=181631

This is what I wrote;
The PStates represent a CPU running at 2.66 GHz...

If you have a different speed CPU, you could get your specific PStates from ab___73's getSSDT5.sh or similar;

I read it, but most of the noobs simply do copy/paste and that could potentially fry their cpu. You should comment out pss from scope _pr.

This tutorial isn't really targeted for that audience, and they would most likely be using a 2.66 GHz i7 920 CPU anyways.

With 10.6.2 the following kernel.log message is seen if the CPU section of the DSDT is passing PStates that are different from what you would get from running ab___73's getSSDT5.sh (2.66 GHz i7 920 or Xeon W3520 CPU example);

Hey d00d,

thanks for the great tutorial!

I already did most of your changes to my DSDT too, in order to try CPU Power Management get going.
But I always have the same problem, that my iTunes plays very slowly and stutters when I don't do anything else.
The second I move my mouse it stops and plays fine, it seems that the CPU throttles down that much, that iTunes
can't play properly.

I saw that you changed CID to fix "stutter problems", but that doesn't help either.

I tried overclocking it to BCLK 185 like you did, but that doesn't fix the stuttering either.
BCLK 133 and 160 show the same effect.
I'm on 32bit and use the same kexts like you do, except I run a Disabler.kext that stops AppleUpstreamClient.kext from loading (nVidia mouse lag fix).

EDIT: fakeSMC 2.5 (with your plist addition) is the same too :(

Thanks,
hanzoh

Remove the IRQ from the TMR Device same like you did it with PIC device!

Wow, that worked!
I found that in another post, too.
Somebody removed the IRQ in PID/RTC/TMR to fix it.
Now that I removed it in both RTC and TMR, the stutter is gone.

So what is up with THe KiNG's SpeedStep fix? Is it really normal Mac Pro 4,1 behavior not to underclock the CPU when it isn't used? In Windows the i7 runs @ 1.6GHz when nothing is going on...

I get 43 on idle @ 2.67GHz.

Thanks, the attached DSDT has the IRQs removed from both PIC and TMR, but I had neglected to mention that the IRQ must also be removed from TMR to fix audio stuttering.

Removing the IRQ from RTC prevents sleep from functioning, and isn't needed to fix the audio stuttering problem.

Update:
I removed the IRQ from RTC and it didn't cause sleep problems in 10.6.2, but it did in 10.6.1.

Apple doesn't advertise any speed step down clocking, so it appears to be normal.
Perhaps someone with an Apple hardware MacPro4,1 could run MSR Tools to prove this out.

The errors may be fixed in a future Chameleon release, here's what Kabyl wrote in post 66 of chameleon-20-rc3-with-snow-leopard-and-large-disk-support;
About the “Sound assertion” message:
That’s because we didn’t implement 64bit EFI System Table, and EFI Runtime Services, I have done some work on it but didn’t get around to adding it yet.

You could get that by using MP41SpeedStepFix.kext in 10.6.0 and 10.6.1, but in 10.6.2 you would just identify your machine as MacPro3,1 in smbios.plist instead.

Hey, wondering if I can get a bit of help.

I seem to be getting kernel panics after following the appropriate DSDT steps for my board (EX58-UD3r) and they're all working correctly, and as shown in the image below AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext is loaded. Although I think because of my current overclock it's causing it to panic. I have 191 BCLK with turbo boost (21x multi) enabled in the BIOS.

Here's what happens:

And here's what it's giving me on startup:

Posted Image

I'm guessing the solution is to bring my BCLK back down to 180 and disable turbo boost? I really not sure. Could you possible explain why OS X ups the multi to 22x?

As always, all help appreciated,

Thanks!
