Hi guys, I have a very good hackintosh in a G5 case with original look. I'm using Clover for UEFI booting and everything except one thing is good.
I'm using MacPro 3,1 as SMBIOS. I know my video card is old, but it could perform a bit better and stay a bit cooler. I read people say that they have the same card (Vapor-x) running around 36 degrees, which is a lot cooler than mine.
My problem is that in Mavericks it runs with 57-58 degrees Celsius on idle. In Yosemite it's 54 degrees with 26 ambient temperature. In terms of performance I see no problems. The only difference which I know of in Clover is SMBIOS. In Mavericks I use MacPro 3,1 and in Yosemite iMac
13,2 12,2. In both my card is correctly recognized with some settings in Clover. (Later I will post a screenshot).
The only thing I didn't touch on either system is AGPM kext. I would like to try to tweak that, but I still don't understand how it works and what are the values I need to put.
So my question is if someone is using this card with Clover and has a better performance in terms of temperature, please share some info what needs to be done to get the best of this card.
