#1867739 OLD SCHOOL RETRO

Posted by Zanthros on 19 November 2012 - 08:36 PM

Thank you BALDY_MAN I appreciate it. After some very minor tweaking I was able to get a slightly higher Geekbench score. The link is : http://browser.prima...kbench2/1303818. Not a big difference but I am having some overclocking difficulties with OSx. Win7 overclocks fine and stable to 4.5GHz on air. but in OSx with -x -v @ boot it shows a freeze with the USB and wake from sleep state. I believe that I need to look at my DSDT for the answer. I did get the backplate painted and for the moment it is done. (A temporary state as with all mods) The picture is below. Thanks again. Attached Thumbnails

Thanks Mr. D. I appreciate it. I am in the process of removing the motherboard so that I can paint the backplate black as suggested by 3.14r2. I agree that it would look better black. I will repost a new and improved back picture as soon as I can. Thanks again.

#1866555 The amount of crap Windows users have to put up with is incredible

Agreed. There is a lot of {censored} that Windows users have to put up with. A large portion of the problem is the computer manufacturers and the “free” software industry. Companies like HP, Dell and the like preinstall crapware on the systems that they produce as they are paid to by the software producers. They also utilize bloated drivers to "improve your experience" instead of just making the damm thing work! It is part of their business model and it makes them more money and aids in keeping the costs of their systems lower. As for the “free” software industry, there is no such thing as free. There is an inherent trade off in supplying the free software. Either there are usage stats data uploaded or data mining at work built in to the programs or the offer to install another browser that most people just click thru. That is how the “free” software is paid for and it makes money. It too is part of a business model. I would suggest that you look into perhaps installing...

Project: OLD SCHOOL I started this MOD as a result of my desire to utilize an iconic case and my desire to run OSX. It took some serious thought, a lot of hard work and a lot of time consuming elbow grease, as there were several factors that came into play with the formulation and completion of this MOD. (No true MOD is ever really completed. It is, and always will be an ongoing project) I started out with an PowerMac G4 case (Yes, I know it has been done perhaps a thousand times before, BUT not in this fashion) as I liked the design and it has attained the reputation as almost a work of art. My feelings were that Apple may have missed the mark slightly by not offering any “Bling” or customization on this case. All of the cases that I have come across browsing the web that were painted had the paint applied to the outside of the case. Nice, but it took away from the depth of the appearance of the case. I fixed this. All it took was countless hours (over 65) of wet sanding and polish...
