    Permanently Banned From Tonymacx86

    Which SSD brand would that be?

    Apple Bluetooth Module

    Yeah, I bothered, and thanks for finding this. I actually had an idea of buying a male/female sata power extension cable, should be easy to find, for couple of €, and then just cutting off the connector, connect to the psu sata, and use the 3,3v cable...

    The 24pin is on the mobo, so patching in is giving me an itch. I'll see about the molex, however the best solution would definitely be a sata connector, if I could somehow just put the wire in to tap the 3,3v... hmmm...

    OK, so if the circuit i powered permanently on the real mac, then i could as well put it on the standby 3,3v on my PSU too? However finding a free SATA connector on my PSU might be a challenge, and I am not keen to cut the connector, I hope I can solve it somehow differently? I guess I could also put it onto molex, just put the wire into the connector, however I would need to use the voltage regulator again... however, does molex also supply 500mA?

    If it were always on, then I could probably power up the computer with the BT device, mouse or a keyboard I reckon. Otherwise on the USB, no chance... or?

    Apple Bluetooth Module

    OK thanks, however I didn't get diodes, but the voltage regulator. According to the guy in the store, this should do well too... my only question is if I need anything else but the voltage regulator?
  7. I posted in another thread/forum, however then I found this one, so asking for help here too (mods, if you wish, delete the other one in the peripherals forum): We got any electrical engineers here? I am definitely not one, and trying to not to damage my BT dongle. I got myself an original Apple Bluetooth dongle, A1114, complete with an antenna and a connector. So I have to reduce the voltage from 5V to 3,3V. For that I bought a simple voltage regulator. TO-220, https://www.sparkfun...s/LD1117V33.pdf According to the guy in the shop this should do just nice regulating 5V down to 3,3V on the USB port. My questions: Do I have to put anything else around the voltage regulator, or would it be enough to connect the input/output (left/right connector) to the corresponding wires giving power on the USB connector and the Apple Module, and just connect both ground to the middle pin? I also read I could drop the 3,3V from the PSU, since the orange wire provides 3,3V, however some say it might be unstable or not good for the dongle. Correct?? I mean, I do have a very good PSU, Corsair HX750. Hi, Could you maybe make a connection list, what is on the connector what (what wire color is what) and connected to what on the Apple Module? That would help a little to the newb like me... What is this connector you are using, is this same as a standard USB header cable motherboard connector?

    Hackintosh and Parallels

    It's running quite well now, thanks for the help guys!
  10. Alright, so all is fine. I was just in the process of looking at my scores and performance, both CPU and GPU, before I declare OSX for my main OS ;-) This should be one of the last steps. Now comes the long run test, all on stock clocks, so I expect no fails on the system side.
  11. With my 2600K, I also get only two states, min and max. Never managed to get any more. Also with a SSDT made by maciasl, and without anything in the chameleon (I tend to run as clean as possible). That said, in windows, it's the same. 16 or 34 (or 48 if I overclock).
  12. I can't figure this out. I even reset the BIOS completely to test this. Any ideas? I noticed my RAM say 8GB 0Mhz... Comparable system: My system: EDIT: AH!! Forget it. Happening in Windows too. And the high score was probably 64bit test. I found a list of 32bit scores, they report 11k or about.

    Help with console log (RTC Alarm)

    Interesting. I will look those things up, however I don't think these things should cause the Mac to fire up. In the meantime, I was reading about these exact two hours wakeup time, and apparently this is a feature: Bonjour Sleep Proxy. Apparently it sends a wake up command for about 10 seconds and sends the computer back to sleep, but I guess it expects a internet connection to be online. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonjour_Sleep_Proxy Well, I guess I have to test this further.
