Hi All,

I am a new member , I am not sure if posts about AMD based hackintosh are allowed in this forum and if not than I apologize and request the Mod to remove this post.


My Config :

AMD Phenom 960T
8 GB DDR3
HD 6750 & HD 5450 (5450 works perfectly but not the 6750)
Gigabyte 880GM-USB 3.1
SL 10.6.8

My problem is the ALC889 on board sound card , If I use Azalia it works but a lot crackle , so I installed VoodooHDA 2.7.4 everything shows up in the system preferences Like line-out green but no sound , than I tried VoodooHDA 2.7.3 sound works but sometimes crackles so I changed the settings in Audio midi to the lowest value with 2 channel 16 bit still at times it crackles. I have tried ###### 3.1 and 4.6 but they don't work.

I also have a Creative sound blaster 5.1 VX in the PCI slot is there a way I could use it.

I apologize again if mentions of AMD hackintosh is not allowed.

Voodoohda Driver


Thank you for the link I downloaded 2.7.4 from there made changes to the info.plist but sound was still crackling when not moving the mouse, so found someone asked to disable C1E and try , well I did that and now the sound is perfect and hope it remains that, I will try with C1E Enabled and try and post later.

Somehow I feel that the VoodooHDA is giving much deeper bass, of course not to forget my Altec speakers which are awesome. But When I played under Windows / Itunes the bass was not coming so nice and rich or maybe its just my hearing.
