I'm running an Ivy Bridge-E based setup that I just purchased, this is my 3rd Hackintosh build. Specs are as follows:
Motherboard: ASUS P97X9, latest BIOS
CPU: Intel i7 4930K (not overclocked)
48GB DDR3-1333 RAM
Graphics: eVGA 770 GTX SC
I can get fully booted in several different ways. I changed out the mach_kernel to the Ivy Bridge-E patched one on an existing Hackintosh 10.9.1 installation. Boots fine. I can boot off of a 10.9.1 installation USB drive, using the flags "-v npci=0x2000 GraphicsEnabler=No cpus=1". Boots fine. I've even gone so far as to use the RampageDev DMG for my motherboard and install the recommended KEXTs, DSDT, etc. Boots fine.
However, the problem is that no matter which of those methods I use, once I'm booted, I'm greeted by incredibly sluggish UI performance. Here's a short video showing what I mean:
Basically anywhere there are animations, they run at around 1/4 FPS. Notice that the windows without opening animations open right up. I also haven't noticed any issues with processing time when I do things (e.g. I can copy files between hard drives at normal speed). It's just that the animated effects of window openings, dialog box popups, progress bars, moving windows around, etc. run incredibly slowly/jerky.
I tried removing the nVidia kexts, same thing happens. Tried booting into safe mode, same thing happens. Tried swapping in a Radeon 6870 and had the exact same issue
I had this exact same graphics card working fine on my previous non-Ivy Bridge-E build. Really the only thing I've changed in this new build is the CPU, motherboard, and added more RAM. I'm really at a loss here. Hopefully there's just a simple thing I'm overlooking? Could this really be Ivy Bridge-E related?
Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer, even if it's just to say "this is definitely a graphics card issue" or "this looks like something to do with the CPU" so I can concentrate my efforts in the right place.
