BTW how did you notice that Ivy Bridge and GPU power management don't reflect as much as possible your components with an (assumed) "MacPro3,1" configuration?

I would suppose that 10.9.4 includes downward compatible "family" device drivers for the Intel CPU & Chipset + NVIDIA GPU that should ensure ideal power management.

 

MacPro3,1 did not come  a i5 processor

MacPro3,1 did not come with a Nvidia GTX (some model did come with Quatro or GT8600)

MacPro3,1 did not have USB 3

MacPro3,1 did not have Thunderbolt

 

iMac13,2 has all the above but not FireWire that MacPro3,1 had.

I remember reading a post from TheKing (I will not  dispute TheKing's wisdom) that MacPro3,1 was chosen for SnowLeopard compatibility OOTB with H3A BIOS, and that it might not be the best choice for Lion and up


 


i tried, but from that cd i cannot install the lan driver, don't know why, it says that the intel® adapter is not present. I'm on windows 8.1 64 bit. Also tried to download the last driver from intel website, same problem

 

UPDATE: i finally installed the driver from cd, still no option for magic packet under advanced t

 

 

 

 

I am getting confused here ..... are we actually talking about a Z77MX-AOS-QUO board or  Asus Sabertooth board in your signature ?

 

Have you tried with another OS ?

My suggestion : Try with Mavericks or Mountain Lion (beta software is beta software) with custom BIOS, it should work straight away. 

 

If it still does not work, I would have to conclude that the LAN port is defective

I did the above, shows as iMac in about this Mac, everything hardware is working

 

But when I signed into iMessage... it disabled my AppleID, I had to call Apple to re-activate...

 

Any idea on what I missed ?

OK, I see that I have to learn much more about Macs.

I was of the mind that the "MacPro3,1" platform is kind of a basis because almost anything could be added to it thanks to expansion cards. But in fact USB 3 is part of the Intel chipset and Thunderbolt is somehow linked to the chipset, too - no chance to add it by inserting an expansion card. At least it is possible to add the current NVIDIA generation. It seems that the Wiki needs an update. They're still recommending the outdated  "MacPro3,1" platform ?!

I will give "iMac13,2" a try once I will set up my build (still undergoing case / PSU modding).

Yeah my Apple TV's are 3rd gens, and it works on my MBP, just not the hack. If I remember correctly I think it worked fine until like 10.9.2. King mentioned something about it being an OS X issue I think. Anybody know how to get it working?
