Didn't make any difference.

It's ok, eventually it'll get going and now I have speedstep it's running really cool, so I'm not worried now :)

Do you use the plugins inside FakeSMC.kext ?



Stated by oSxFr33k #1136:

Apparently there is a bug only in LPCSensors.kext with  "W_PUMP headerĂ©  that shuts off water pump completely.

To get my X299 rig to work I had to delete the plugins from fakesmc.

I'd love them back! I feel the need to keep tabs on this cpu as it can pull 300 watts at full load.


Is there any way I can help you guys with data to get it going?


This might be the first clue - a pic from a kernel panic before I deleted the plugins.



Thanks :)

You could use a more recent FakeSMC.kext  ( 6.25.1426)  !


Yours is 6.16.1394  !  ^_^

HWSensors 6.25.1426

Off-Topic, but maybe someone can help me.


My new build with the GA-Z170X is working fine now so I decided to sell my old build after a clean Installl of Sierra. But I am having an issue with clover: the SSD won't show up in the Clover menu


The old Build GA-X58A-UDR-3 Rev. 2 with an i950 and 12 GB RAM. The SSD is a Crucial M300 (which the new built picks up just fine)

The Sierra Install worked fine after disabling USB 3 in BIOS and adding some bootflags but the Disk just won't show up in Clover after restart. I tried 2 Disks now and I never had this problem before. . EFI Boot is enabled, AHCI is enabled. The Bootstick was created with u-n-i-beast set to boot in Legacy Mode. A DSDT File for my bios is present in the ACPI > patched folder. System Definition is set to 14,2.


Does someone has a clue/tip/hint on how to resolve this?


Thank you very much.


Well  I suggest that your solution is in a letter: U


The SSD from your old Build GA-X58A-UDR-3 commes from a EFI.boot config and your Z170 has a config as UEFI.boot

CUDA question?

Hello! Did not know until reading your posts ^ above today, that there were existed such CUDA drivers! There is some good benefit to it then? ... is it for rendering tasks in Premiere / Photoshop / other professional apps? Or does this help something else in os x?



Gaming 3 updated:


Anyhow I have fixed up all my Gaming 3 Clover configs today. Its available upon request (just PM me here). Updated for 12.6 today. I didnt do all this loads of DSDT patching to the max (like you guys for the Gaming 5). So mine has always been broken sleep function, it doesnt matter to me. Everything else seems fine. Many thanks for all help / knowledge coming back here. Just to update the CLOVER again for latest.


BTW whatever happened to Gaming 4 guys? Did we skip one? Hehehe. :thumbsup_anim:



Testing Metal:


And something for future: I find a list of perhaps 'metal' games?




We can try that list to to see which ones are the best for benchmarking metal (if they can at all). So to proper 'decent' testing for latest nvidia web drivers (will be hoping).


Actually I already posted on other forum thread about metal games list --> http://www.insanelym...2017/?p=2467028


But maybe it should get its own thread (not to be lost in massive thread). :poke:

If you want to test for Cuda /Metal /OpenCl   capacity try this little benchmark utility:
