EP45T-UD3R + Q6600 + 8GB RAM

09 March 2011 - 05:15 PM

This is my build:

Gigabyte EP45T-UD3R
Intel Core2Duo Q6600 (running at 3.0GHz)
NVIDIA 9800GT 1GB (enabled with GraphicsEnabler in RC5)

I've installed Chameleon RC5 700 to a 2GB USB stick, with a pre-patched DSDT from an auto-patcher for my board, MacPro3,1 SMBIOS, custom boot.plist, and loading these kexts (also from the USB):

ALC8xxHDA (for the 889a audio)
fakeSMC (v2.5)
IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector (to get non-orange drive icons)
JMicron36xATA (for my IDE DVD drive)

I boot from the USB stick to get the bootloader, and then boot into Snow Leopard 10.6.6, leaving the OS filesystem install 100% vanilla.

All seems to be working well, but Safari scrolling and browsing speed is a little slow for what I would expect from my build. Also, my XBench results are showing a very slow disk read/write speed.

Does anyone have suggestions on how I could improve this setup at all?
