#2062690 Haswell-E mach_kernel patch (5960X, 5830K and 5820K)

Posted by maleorderbride on 21 September 2014 - 12:55 AM

Full power management is unlikely to happen without Apple.Since most core functions seem to work pretty easily, there is not really much more progress needed other than Clover.  All one really needs is Rampage's SSDT when he releases, a few kexts (all available already if you search this forum for the requisite chipset drivers), and chameleon on a USB.

If you have problems with the installer mickg, then do the install on a different build and only plug it in to the X99 when it is all set up.

#1980812 Patched AppleUSBXHCI from OS 10.8.2

Posted by maleorderbride on 01 January 2014 - 06:53 PM

i try with and without GenericUSBXHCI, and i have the same problem about speed step and turbo, look:Screen Shot 2013-12-31 at 22.49.36.png very very sloooowww!!Are you injecting CPU plugin-type 1 in an SSDT or your DSDT?  That can cause a stuck multiplier of x8.0.

#1943341 New OS X compatible motherboard -> QUO

Posted by maleorderbride on 04 September 2013 - 04:36 PM

My apology.  I got carried way and overstated things, but the core issue is still (supposedly) this motherboard with exactly 2x PCI-e x16 and 2x PCI-e x1.  With a full-sized video card installed that drops you down to 1x PCI-e x16 and 1x PCI-e x1. Even with two fully working TB1 ports, this specific motherboard that sparked this conversation, would be less able to function as an high-end professional workstation (not just audio) than something like an ASUS P9X79 WS (Full size video card+ 5x PCI-e x16).  This Quo motherboard maxes out at 32GBs of RAM.  A P9X79 WS can have more RAM than OS X can address.  That (edit: I mean Genzai) thinks that the most important thing holding this specific motherboard back from being an audio workstation is a lack of hot-swappable TB is a severe misunderstanding of hardware.  That is the main point I tried to address.  I do not think that TB has no utility, or needs to die.  But I do place it belo...

#1943169 New OS X compatible motherboard -> QUO

Posted by maleorderbride on 03 September 2013 - 06:19 PM

For our applications Thunderbolt has become essential in that it saves time (money in labor) for the transfer of some content and for our large scale apps there aren't enough slots for I/O without an expansion chassis which in and of itself can be a nightmare.   Once the content is on the network it's not an issue but for getting content on and off the network and having flexibility in device interface it's an excellent tool.  I'd agree that large scale apps aren't using 37xx series processors but in my experience upgrading systems yearly isn't usually done so having a computer that is a a year or two out in technology is fairly common in large scale production.  In fact it's the standard.    We're judged on the quality of the work product, not how new the technology might be. This is one of the misconceptions that I had in mind.  With a socket 2011 motherboard, which has largely been out concurrently with socket 1155 (the motherboard discussed in...

Hmm, might be a bit early for that. in our industry (film and post production) its caught on quite well already. And if the new mac pro doesn't flop that will push it even harder into some markets. Granted it seems likely to stay a pro / high-end interface for the near to mid term but once intel integrates it directly onto the CPU it may still become more ubiquitous. USB 3.0 is great for as an external drive connector. But for attaching SAS RAIDS, 10GbE, and other hardware that used to require PCIe cards TB is quite useful. I think this tech has legs but time will tell. There seems to be a lot of misunderstanding about what thunderbolt is for right now. Apple gets it (maybe TOO much) but intel is in a very good position to keep it alive and pushing it along since it makes the chips and chipsets we all use and it has pretty clear plans to make thunderbolt the external PCI bus of the future. Don't forget optical cable versions are coming at some point too.  Anyway, tech prop...

#1915455 Instant Reboot with Dual Kepler Cards in 10.8.3

Posted by maleorderbride on 16 May 2013 - 04:35 AM

You were absolutely correct that it was not the AppleHDA driver. Somehow, it is the freaking SATA cable. -.- It was just coincidence that it worked through the first few boots up until I installed the AppleHDA.

Thanks scellow! I got one monitor working yesterday and now should be able to get the second going as well. ;)

#1844622 TonyMacx86 and Mac Man Steal Again

Posted by maleorderbride on 16 August 2012 - 04:54 PM

I just spent a few minutes browsing your blog and bookmarked it. It looks very helpful. Thanks for your generous donation of time to this community ;) Back in March I had an X79 ASUS thread on Tonymac until I started to run into issues with admins. I ended up deleting the thread and removing all files that I edited. My edited kexts and ALC898 method ended up in ###### on the next release with no attribution. Granted they were easy for a real programmer probably, but took me 40 hours of reading guides and testing.

Thanks ^_^ do we have to reapply this:> Got finally on the Lion bandwagon myself too and have still some problems to sort out. First thanks to maleorderbride, dougaa and chuckles, is thanks to you guys that I have a running built :) Anyway this are the tings I still cannot sort out/understand. Got to 10.7.2 following chuckles post, lion runs fine (no performance increase here though) butrandomly (about 30-40% of times) on starting up I get to the login window but cannot move the mouse; or I get to the login window can move the mouse but cannot click on the name and activate the password input dialog. At that point all I can do is hard reset the pc and on the next reboot everything is fine.Even if in the Bios i have all Stata controller set to [AHCI] the 2 GSata ports (the 6gbs ones Gsata6 and Gsata7 on the manual) are found as IDE. I am on FF bios update. They work fine on osx but won't work if I link them to a SSD drive (Since it is AHCI only I suppose) nor I can get...

10.7.3 without incident. Also, I switched to an AppleHDA.kext located made by our very own Toleda and hosted on TonyMac: http://tonymacx86.bl...or-onboard.html Sounds better to me and it aided me in my quest to get HDMI working on my build. Mostly working on my ASUS P9X79 Pro / 3930K @ 4.5GHz build ;p Everything but sleep so far! I'll make a thread for it once I get sleep working.
