will this work with Kalyway? Sometimes I feel insecure after patching as I might get kernel panics, but for those who use Kalyway 10.5.2, please report

Earlier I posted that it works, but yes it only works for showing the stock speed, nothing about over clocking or under.

It's still better than showing x.x ghz unknown proccessor though.

Does not show correctly for me. About this mac shows wrong CPU, but terminal command shows correct CPU but wrong speed, it is overclocked.

Intel® Pentium® Dual CPU E2160 @ 1.80GHz

CPU is overclocked to 3.4Ghz.

Sorry if I am in the wrong thread, but I was wondering how I can edit the Model Name and Model Identifier at Hardware Overview. It now says Model Name: Mac and Model Identifier: P35C-DS3R (my MOBO)
I would like to have it Mac Pro as I have my system in an original G5 case... Thanks

i like this. worked out great on my vostro 1500 w/ c2d t8100.
ironically, i had just installed leo4all v3 on it (great release btw. only thing i had to do afterwards was nvinstaller41, and this), and the default "about this mac" showed 1.2ghz for the cpu. installed this, and it's back to showing 2.1 as it's supposed to!

I will say that again. I got that this program recognizes your cpu (what MacOsX on PC has troubles to do), but what I don't understand is the consequences : does it only recognize it or does it makes your all MacOsX recognizes it so that it may apply the appropriate changes by itself ?

check this out : Starting at the reply 11, aqua-mac gave me the way to do it ; http://aquamac.probo...?...=469&page=1

Starting from the reply 11, I am explaining here what I did to change "About this Mac" and the "System Profiler":http://forum.insanel...showtopic=93600

Now you have : Model Name: Mac and Model Identifier: P35C-DS3R

What do you want to keep and what do you want to change into Mac Pro ?

You can do it in Terminal too :

hey, this will read down name& speed from its microde and nothing more. in my case when i open the about this mac it shows the stock frequency but if i open hardware profiler it reports the real-overclocked speed- as you can see in on the picture below.
so what that program does is read the data and shows it about this mac window, nothing more:)
sorry for missunderstanding Gilou:)

So no one knows if I get a Q6600 will it work right away on About This Mac or will I have to use this program?
