That sounded advanced! But, will it also enable GTX5XX fan control from OSX? I am worried about the temperature on my card and have to boot in W7 now and then just to cool it down.

Does anyone know more about the fermi cards and if it is possible to control the fan speed within Mac OSX?

CPU and GPU Control is done by the OS.
read the newer Fermi Card Thread and you know more.

I have read so many now but must have missed it. Do you have a link to post?

Huhh!! I went thru your steps and then I discovered the Chameleon Wizard (very easy to use and understand) and got to know that I have configured a faulty SMBIOS. I had used MacPro3,1 but I should have used another. So I recreated that one to be suitable for my motheroard p8p67 (1155 socket). It was the iMac 12,2. And created a new Chameleon boot.plist.
Then.. I took the GeForce.kext, GeForceGLDriver.bundle and the NVDAGF100Hal.kext from the this 580 enabler package and manually placed it in the extensions folder.
And voila!! All tests looks ok now! I can start iMovie 11 and Skype!

Thank you very much!

well, I don't have iPhoto nor iMovie, so I can't test that.

But I've the files I'm using attached.

The EFI String does actually the same as Graphics Enabler of Chameleon, but you have more control of what gets injected.
I have to use the Evil extensions, because otherwise I get stuck at "PCI configuration begin".
The Patched AppleGraphicsPowerManagement does actually what the name already says. It throttles the GPU and therefore the GPU produces less heat. I've applied the patch to the MacPro5,1 identifier, so maybe you have to change that.

Plist for one GTX 580 with 3GB VRAM:

Many thanks Matze!!

Sorry to ask again but I have to understand some before I do any changes - (I really hate the kernal panic ;-) since I had like 2 weeks of work before I got this far.

1. Do you think I shall go with the EFI string? Is that string in the plist of the 100HAL kext or where do I find it?
2. Shall I put the AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext in the extra folder or in /S/L/E?
3. What is the Evil extensions? What do they do? Are they also to be placed in /S/L/E?
4. And.. where do I change the identifier from my MacPro5,1 to my Macpro3.1? Are there any advantages using 5,1 instead of 3,1 or is it only digits to be equal on all the other places it refers to the identifier?

I think I am very close with my GTX580 to work well since I have 45.5 FPS in Cinebench but... I cant even start iMovie 11. It says it cant use core image during to a incompatible graphics card. Thats a shame!
Shall I have the AppleGraphicsPowerManagement in S/L/E only? I think I put it in the root Extra folder.
Would be happy to get this right before I try... I just hate KPs!! I panic myself!!
