I have fakesmc ver 901 installed, and can use hwmonitor to get all the info I want. kextstat reports 901 as loaded, so maybe the one in the BIOS is only used to boot. FakeSMC is up to about ver 944 now.

Common..., the one you have intalled will override the BIOS one, you can read the bdmesg and dmesg...

Anyone getting any strange graphics issues? If I remote desktop connect to another mac (Since 828M) I'm getting some odd stuttering/graphics distortion.  Using 2 monitors (HDMI, DVI) with integrated graphics only.

 

Running OS X 10.8.5, 828M BIOS, only installed the Audio Kext from tony installer.  Intel Virtualization enabled in BIOS, set to integrated graphics only with 512MB (reporting 768MB in settings), and set to Profile2 in memory settings.  i7-3770K with 4X Crucial Ballistix Tactical Low Profile 8GB Single DDR3-1600.

 

I could switch to a GeForce 560 Ti but wasn't sure if that would be better or worse.  Here is an example when I just scrolled up in the thread: http://cl.ly/image/3x0O1Y330Y2b

 

Here is results of my DarwinDump: http://geesu.net/d/DarwinDump.htm

 

Thx!

I have a question for you:

"Do you know what DVMT 5.0 Total Graphic Memory Size for IGPU" is?

No?

Then why are you changing it to 512?

Did you missed when I told BugsB to NOT mess with BIOS settings?

Why you think I asked him that? Because he did exactely what you are doing now and got video corruption then complain..

 

Why nobody listen me no idea...

BTW the .htm dump is useless for me, yeah I know I said that before...

Sorry @ King i didn't realize that, I'll change the size back to 32MB.  A lot has been said in this thread so it's hard to follow at times.

 

Also, can I start a wiki? Or can we throw a wiki up on an existing OS x 86 site for this board?  That way we can have everything in one place?

 

(What is useful from darwin dump?)

Agree with wiki is needed..

 

The golden rule with BIOS is : DO NOT TOUCH* and be happy :)

 

*unless is a must

This looks very cool.  I like the FireWire and Thunderbolt both in one board.  Agree with the comment re: Target Disk mode.  

 

If this is a reliable, easy to setup OSX rig, I could see it tipping the scales in those situations when buying Apple hardware usually makes more sense (e.g. MacMini for a non computer-savvy family member, etc.)  

 

Like the idea of not skimping on components and having a little more control over the supply chain.  

Best of luck to the devs!

Cool just re-flashed the BIOS but now what is interesting is I can't use my GeForce 560 AND my integrated graphics.  I tried about every combination of "Enabled/Auto/Disabled" for integrated, as well as init display.  Eventually just disabled the integrated to go with the GeForce 560 (but would like both if possible that way I can plug in 3 monitors).  What's strange is this used to work, I believe revision 816M.


FYI started a wiki page here: http://wiki.osx86pro...p/Z77MX-QUO-AOS

 

Feel free to update and let me know if I've put any wrong information.

7870 and Cinema Display no longer work with 828. Chose every combination but I just get a dark blank screen.

Reverted to 816 but have to deal with the blank white screen in the mavericks installer/recovery partition.

Actually just had a Kernel Panic after using my GeForce 560 Ti, should I be changing any settings? Or purchasing a different card?    Full KP: http://pastebin.com/WyTSbZMj

Should I give the official NVIDIA drivers a try? http://www.nvidia.co...f02-driver.html

There is no official nVidia driver for Mavericks!

Your graphic card used to work b/c it had support, now is clear that it does not have or is poor.

 

I always advice people to not hurry and upgrade to latest OS.

OS X from my experience is not stable until it reach at least x.x.2 version..

 

If I would be an nVidia user I wont upgrade to Mavericks until nVidia will release official drivers, if you read adobe/nvidia forums you will see why...

I'm on 10.8.5 with my GeForce 560, my apologies.  I have 2 of the motherboards, my GeForce 670 Mavericks system works great.

Yeah I didn't looked at full panic report, was based on your sig, didn't know you have board(s) collection there...

Then try nVidia drivers, what are you waiting for?

I am now, but the drivers don't support GeForce 560. At least OS X isn't an option when you go to download drivers for the 560.  Everything seems ok so far when I selected the NVIDIA drivers.

 

Still quite strange I can't use PCI-x and integrated graphics, I used to use both, I might roll back the BIOS revision and see how that goes.

Running the GeForce drivers now on System 2 (see sig), machine just locks up then restarts after about 10 minutes.  Latest exception: http://pastebin.com/TyvmjPEX

BSD process name corresponding to current thread: kernel_task

Any ideas? Latest darwin dump: http://geesu.net/d/DarwinDump.htm

 

Wondering if I should just buy a 670 or if the 560 will ever work.

HDAEnabler with this board?

You cannot be serious...

 

As I said the htm is useless for me b/c it does not print the bdmesg, I know I can get it from ioreg but I don't plan to lose time doing it every time...

As for the 560 Ti, I have no idea, from my pov it should work, maybe is better to not use injector and let the web drivers do the thing if they do on this model, dunno, is something it needs to be tested.

Is fine, I am not upset on Geesu, he want to learn...

On others is another story, there my liver can't do much is insensitive, but my brain is close to explode...
