#2013049 Mac Mini or iMac? Help, Please.

Hello, You would be fine with a Mac Mini with Core i5. You can stream 1080p, however I am not sure of the graphic/web design work. Are you going to use Adobe Suites. If yes, then you should better get an iMac with Nvidia. My friend actually have a 2012 Core i5 Mac Mini, use it for Plex streaming and for editing family movies. It works great, I have added 1 ssd and 1 additional HDD inside for storage for him. It is connected to a 42" monitor (living room setup) and it works fine for Garageband as well. http://www.ifixit.co...Drive Kit/11713

Hi take a look here...599 And if you are on ML look at the Download section for the patched Kext like AppleACPIPlatform hereYukon hereAUDIO AD2000b herePatched AppleRTC hereBlockStorage here Hope it help Fabio Thanks Fabio..This still works  :D I just did an upgrade, and now I am using SSD and thing looks good so far. I am still on ML, need MAC to be stable. ML is good so far, less updates and very solid. I also have SL also on an old drive but SL has no support for GTX 580. Now looking forward to add 1 more SSD  :P

Hello hugeschnauzer, Yes use the DSDT that I have sent, however even if you add P and C states based on you OC cpu frequency, I do not think it will increase your geek bench. You can either keep your old DSDT and roll back to old ACPI.kext or new DSDT with new ACPI.kext. Download an app called SMC Monitor, you can see your P and C states from there, you will then need to add to your DSDT. Check this threat http://www.insanelym...neric-scope-pr/

Hi hugeschnauzer, Yes, you are right. However our CPU i7 9xx has only 2 SS tables. MAC OS is little funny when it come to this function as it is controlled by Energy Saver from System Preference as well. You need to also adjust P and C states accordingly as you have OC your CPU. ML reads the default clock of your cpu, it will ignore your smbios CPU clock. So keep your default cpu clock and increase BCLK if you want to OC, so that ML can have native turbo ratios 111122 with i7 930. I get around 19251 on Geekbench, not too bad for a 4-year old motherboard:) http://tinypic.com/v...pic=2u8hr8k&s=6 What does everyone do for USB 3.0 on this board - want to get a big USB 3.0 external hard drive but no point unless have a card on the computer - what is the computability for this board??? most seem to install drivers for windows... Good Question; I have tried couple of them; namely Asmedia, NEC and Marvell. I have concluded that ML does not like third parties USB 3.0. However Asmedi...
