Hello everybody ...
I upgraded my system from i5 2400 to i7 4770k so i'm posting here to share my results with the rest..
 
Bios ver F9
 
Bios settings to defaults

 

X.M.P = profile 1
Intel HD Graphics - Disabled (i dont use the igpu)
SATA mode AHCI (obviously)
C6-C7 states - disabled (if your PSU is certified for haswell C6-C7 states then don't disable this one)
VT-d = disabled (make sure this one is disabled)

 

Install:
 

- Used my macbook to make an installation flash drive with
Chameleon Bootloader and the latest fakesmc from Kozlek

 Booted with GraphicsEnabler=no  -v  -f  and installed.
 
- Rebooted and installed Chameleon + fakesmc with sensors +  Lan and audio drivers
 
AppleHDA can be patched using Toledas patch .
but it needs a little bit extra edits to disable the front panel detection bug...i will post how soon
 
- Used ssdtPRGen.app to make SSDT.aml for my cpu
 
- Booting my OS with only DropSSDT=yes ...no other flags needed.
- Speedstep is working 8-17-35-36-37-38-39 

 
- Patched DSDT from UEFI vF9 without any audio injection since i inject my audio with ssdt table.

  Attached File  dsdt F9.zip   15.28KB   27 downloads

 

- ssdt audio injection for realtek and external gpu. NOT IGPU

 Attached File  ssdt-1 audio.zip   391bytes   14 downloads

 

 
- Many Thanks to the whole hackintosh community....
Happy hacking

If you have a working SpeedStep you would be the first. I highly doubt it.

You are right..It's going down to 800Mhz and then to 3.7Ghz so it's turbo not speedstep...But still it's something

Use Clover bootloader

Enable C3, C4, C5, C6, C7 (for Speedstep to work)

Clover also has native UEFI (it uses your mobo uefi)

Clover also provide native DSDT patch on the fly

 

You can configure your own config.plist by using CloverConfigurator.app

 

Clover Configuratorhttp://www.osx86.net...r-configurator/
 

Clover EFI Bootloaderhttp://sourceforge.n.../cloverefiboot/

 

 

Major features of Clover instead Chameleon:

 

It uses native motherboard UEFI or it's own EFI for legacy BIOS motherboard.

It creates native System Reserved partition just like in real macs. (iCloud, iMessage, Find my Mac would work)

Bootcamp works natively.

DSDT Patching on the fly.

Speedstep on haswell systems has nothing to do with the bootloader..I'm sure clover is a great bootloader but it won't solver any speedstep problems

Everything depends by SMBIOS used into config.plist.

If you have a fully working smbios with haswell systems then you might wanna share it with the rest?

On my old platform speedstep is working natively, no more bios-uefi complication aka Legacy socket.

 

I suggest you to use a MacMini SMBIOS to get more pstates.

 

Personally I use MacPro 3,1 SMBIOS in config.plist

Like i said...Haswell systems don't get native speedstep yet..and clover can't change this...

On my Sandy Bridge system speedstep was working perfect with custom DSDT-SSDT and Chameleon..

Try to put in config.plist "DropOEMDSDT" then generate a dsdt patch using RevoGirl's Tool.

I already have patched my DSDT and generated SSDT..besides Clover can't auto patch my DSDT yet maybe it doesn't support Z87 boards yet...
