  1. GTX 550ti Optimization Help

    After a serious amount of trial and error I finally got OSX 10.7 (Updated to 10.7.3) running on my machine pretty much flawlessly. OSX 10.7.3 Chameleon vR2.1 Not using DSDT yet i7 Sandbridge (3.4ghz Turboboost Issue to 3.8 not solved yet) Intel DH67CL (H67 Express Chipset) (Turboboost support) 16g Corsair Ram (Issue System profile reading only 4g Priority High) (1333) GTX 550ti (Benchmark 1100fps) (Fermii) (Cuda driver v5.0.36 Installed) (Nividia Web driver 127.00.00 Non-Installable but not needed, I think) (OpenCl patch from ###### for 10.7.3 applied) (Issue - OpenCL not working Priority Low) (Issue - Resolution Maxed at 1280x1024 Priority High) (Issue - 1536mb being displayed in system profile Priority Medium) 60gig SSD (System Drive) 1.5 TB WD (4 Partitions for Utility) 750Watt Coolmaster ______________________ NovaBenchmark Results 2012-10-04 16:39:52 +0000 Mac OS X 10.7.3 Intel Core i7 @ 3390 MHz Graphics Card: GeForce GTX 550 Ti 4096 MB System RAM <<<<<< Annoying Issue / (Score: 138) - RAM Speed: 8689 MB/s CPU Tests (Score: 716) - Floating Point Operations/Second: 263569616 - Integer Operations/Second: 589816448 - MD5 Hashes Calculated/Second: 1140226 Graphics Tests (Score: 311) - 3D Frames Per Second: 1228 Hardware Tests (Score: 55) - Primary Partition Capacity: 55 GB - Drive Write Speed: 260 MB/s Ill start with asking, how do I fix my resolution Issue? I know on the nivida site my card supports 2560x1600 Max. In the system preferences > Displays 1280x1024 Max. Tried graphicsmode = 2560x1600 no luck. I have a feeling an to edit a Kext somewhere must be made, inorder to add the reso? Feel free to let me know what else I can do to optimize my Graphics! My issue with OpenCL is that I believe its not enabled by default. Reading that from another guide on OpenCL Trouble shooting. Even after mutlibeast patch, when I run a OpenCL Tester my GPU isnt recognized as a OpenCL device. Good info http://www.clbenchma...config=11982342 Update - Looking into nivida kext injectors for resolution issue. 12/4/2012
  2. If the thats a Fermi card try reinstalling the driver right off nividias site. im pretty sure they have mac support for gtx 6xx and 5xx.

  4. "NVclockX: Overclocking..." hang up or wait?

    Solved with reinstal. updated chameleon fixed it.
  5. HELLLLLLLO. Hang up after the following. 1. boot chameleon(f8) 2. -v only (same results with other flags) tried graphicsenabler=yes/no tried PCIRootid 1/0 loads to Nvclockx: attempting to get temps Nvclockx: attempting to get frequencies Nvclockx: Overclocking... After this I believe it is hanging up. I haven't let it go longer than 10mins - 15mins. Prior to the hang up there was something about it not being able to load com.AppleRTC, which i think has nothing to do with this. SOOOOOOOOO...I have the following .kext FakeSMC+plugins+Apps_rev609 Found here... http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.p ... hl=NVclock MY feeling on the matter...the wrong readings are being measured prior to trying to over clock or it just takes more than 10mins or its totally something else. I have zero edits in my com.apple.Boot.plist. it freezes if i remove NVclockx. It never lets me get past this hang up. PLEEEEEASE HELP. Thank you all.
