Hi everyone,

I'm new to the hackintosh scene and this was my first attempt to install OS X.

I've successfully installed ML 10.8.3 on my computer couple of days ago, here's the spec;

Mobo: ASRock Z68 Extreme4
CPU : Intel Core i5 2500K 3.3GHz
GFX : N570GTX Twin Frozr III Power Edition/OC

I'm using Macmini5,1 SMBios and everything runs smoothly from what I can tell, however console spits out the following:

[AGPM Controller] unknownPlatform
kernel[0]: GFX0: Not usable

But I can see GPU changing it's state on HW monitor.
When it's idle it shows

and when on load

Did some benchmarking,

Cinebench

Heaven

Temperatures when idle between 30-37 Celsius and when loaded like when doing Heaven benchmark it's between 61-65 Celsius.

is it working properly? is this the full potential of it? I'm worried that I might burn my card with no PM.

I've tried to fix AGPM by using Macpro5,1 smbios and editing the agpm.kext, AGPM work but with that GPU does not change states at all and benchmarks reports awful fps, in heaven I've gotten like 17fps max. Also tried inserting macmini section but that didn't work either.

I've also installed the latest Nvidia's own drivers. Not sure if it's working or not as it defaults the OSX driver upon boot.

I've been searching and searching for the last couple of days, trying the suggestions I can find on all over the web but nothing works. I'm so confused as to what to do, what to edit or what's the correct values are for my card. What's the next step? Do I ignore the AGPM controller issue? or is there a fix without taking a performance hit?

Thanks in advance.

I've managed to switch the drivers from default to web, I've tested it with GuildWars 2 and good FPS there, I think I'll be set once the AGPM properly working as well.

Have you added your deviceid to the agpm.kext?
