I have Mavericks set up with the latest kernel from Andy, this one:
 

SinetekBronzovkAnVoodoo v2.0.0:xnu-2422.1.72-AMD/BUILD/obj/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64

It installed correctly and boots correctly, but, it is extremely slow. I have almost 100% of my CPU being used constantly, as well as my RAM. Is there something I may have done wrong or is this a common error?

Taking a look at "About this Mac" it shows my CPU to be 800mhz only?

Well before, I was using Andy's System.kext along with the 2 VoodoooPstate kexts. Just out of pure gut feeling, I replaced Andy's System.kext with the original System.kext from the installer. Repaired my caches and rebooted, and bam, everything was working just fine. Still haven't properly tested graphics though, waiting for a game to download.

Dans I am not exactly sure what the exact name is. What is the output when you use -v? Does it hang or panic?
