If you are getting 11500 that should be about right. I'm at 3.87 and I'm getting just over 11000. I could not believe it.. my Windows Vista performance score (running in VMware Fusion 3.0) went from 2.9 to 4.9. Thats crazy fast for a VM!
To answer your question about using the kexts.. You should back ALL of your kexts up and then put these into /Extensions/Extra but be warned.. if for whatever reason it fails to boot, you will need to be able to boot from another osx drive (I have it installed on an old laptop drive too) so that you can get back into osx to fix the issue. You need to run Kext Utility after putting the attached kext's into the /E/E folder.
Again.. if you are getting 11500 and everything is working.. I'd follow "If it aint broke dont fix it" motto.
Ive just recently installed osx after a few headaches, with the help of many of the guys on this forum. I used the tweak41 guide to install.
Im running 10.6 and everything seems fine. 920 i7 2.67 geekbench 7400 (32bit)
I have just backed up the install drive ready to try and update. Tweak41 had an update guide but i guess the files used are for the SE board, and it was a little confusing.
I am using a usb stick with boot files on them to start up. (as with tweak41 guide)
1- I should download the above files from Leozino and within the osx install take the kexts in the zip file and place them in extensions/extra . run kext utility (i presume the dsdt file is for bios version 801). According to tweak41 guide i should do this just before restarting when the 10.6.2 update asks to restart?
2- Should i update anything on the USB boot stick. For example copy the above files and recreate the bootstick?
Does it matter whether i upgrade on my original drive(on sata1) or on the backup external usb drive?
Thanks for the help.
