  1. ASUS WL-138g v2

    I concur. I'd actually say this card is performing faster under Lion than it does in Leopard. I was installing Lion 10.7.2 at the weekend for trial to migrate from Leopard, that's how I know :wink2:
  2. Intel HD Graphics / GMA 5700

    i didnt force anything, although i have set 1600x900 in *.boot.plist. In system preferences there are no options to change the resolution. I re-enabled the *vadriver.bundle and left the *fb.kext disabled and it still boots to 1280x800. I have a problem at the moment though, i changed something and now the machine wont boot at all. Boot with -v just shows a hang after loading /system/library/coreservices/<someplist>.plist right at the beginning. Sigh.

  4. Intel HD Graphics / GMA 5700

    Stock kexts from 10.6.6 but also i used some stuff from iBeast (/extra) particularly his com.apple.xxx and smbios.plist. I have also played with the Info.plist inside the AppleIntelGraphics/Control kexts. I will have to make a summary of what I have done. i still think we need a dsdt hack and or some efi string. (Ja jsem anglican, ale bydlim v cesko, v brne.)
  5. Intel HD Graphics / GMA 5700

    I have a Lenovo T510 with Core i7 @2.6ghz. Until yesterday, I was only able to get a screen by booting into single user mode and kextloading the AppleIntelHDGraphics.kext and AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext and then 'exit' to continue the boot process. You'll note that the kexts are already loaded in single mode (kextstat | grep AppleIntelHD), so reloading them maybe disables them or stops them from interfering. Not 100% sure about this. But, after removing AppleIntelHDGraphicsFB.kext and AppleIntelHDGraphicsVADriver.bundle then rebuilding caches I have managed to get a basic screen working at 1200x800 (native is 1600x900) without going into single mode to begin with. I was hoping with the core i5 13" being released there would be an update to allow the Intel HD graphics to work without a seperate gfx chip, but it didn't happen, so I think the HD drivers that came with 10.6.6 already work with the new MBPs. This leads me to believe the answer is in the AppleGraphicsPower or AppleGraphicsControl.kext. There are some quite interesting keys inside the Info.plists. I think the only other possibility is to get an ioreg from the new 13" MBP and find a hack for the DSDT. BTW - My SL got updated to 10.6.6 mysteriously somehow, I cloned the image from a macbookpro 7,1 @10.6.5 and I didn't update it manually! Once after I booted it, I noticed the new app store on the dock...
  6. Just a question about your xbench scores in your sig. The higher score should be without disks right? Unless your raid is very very fast...
  7. Which Wireless PCI Adapter Works

    That's great all you guys with USB adapters, but take note of the subject: "Which Wireless PCI Adapter Works"
  8. Which Wireless PCI Adapter Works

    I think you probably have a faulty card. Do you by chance have a windows install you can try the card with? I would RMA the card and get a replacement. I have a feeling quite a few % of these cards are not working for everyone, maybe it's a quality control issue...
  9. Which Wireless PCI Adapter Works

    No. If it did, would I say that it was working perfectly?
  10. I had slow network issues also, and I changed advanced settings in the router until the network was working normally again. But then I have several Apple devices connecting to my router too, all on 10.5.6 (macmini, ibook, appletv), and i can't say if 10.5.6. caused it, or bad default wireless settings on the router. My wireless performance has always been crappy with this supposedly 'n' router.
  11. You'll have to put the log level up until you see something useful. Don't do it all at once though or you'll be flooded with info, and it'll be hell to find any needles in that haystack.
  12. A 1 hour OCCT linpack shows your CPU is stable. Maybe you should try dropping the vcore voltage 1 point at a time until you can get linpack to crash. This will allow your CPU to run cooler, and you'll save energy too. (you are running manual voltages?). 5-5-5-15 is fine. My Voltages are +0.2v for DIMM, +0.1v for MCH and FSB. Don't forget I'm running the DS3R board (same Northbridge though) and a different CPU. I think that either your FSB is too fast for your memory (450mhz on DDR-800 is not always guaranteed), or you need to add another 0.1v to the FSB and/or DIMM.
  13. Do you have problems with all USB devices like memory sticks, hard drives etc? Try running the USB Probe (available in the developer tools if you installed them) and watch the output when you plug in and use the printer/isight. Also try plugging this devices directly into the USB ports on the back panel so you take the front cables out of the equation, if you are not already. This could mean that your overclock is not *entirely* stable. When I'm overclocking the big numbers, sometimes when I restart the BIOS will reset to factory defaults. Prime95 alone is not enough to guarantee stability, you should also run OCCT or IntelBurnTest - which if your board is not correctly set up with regard to memory timings, core and motherboard voltages, the test will fail quite quickly. I find the linpack test in OCCT very demanding on the CPU and pushes those temperatures right up. If anythings wrong it will crash within a couple of minutes. Currently I am testing a 3.6Ghz overclock on my Q6600 and I'm having a hard time finding the right voltages for stable Prime and OCCT, although no game I have thrown at it has crashed yet. That Freezer 7 is a great cooler (I have the same one) so I don't think it's temperature problems, but either memory timings, or one of your voltages needs bumping up (DIMM,FSB,MCH).
  14. Remove AppleUpstreamUserClient.kext Yes they are. It's a long ascii string encoded into hexadecimal. If you do the gfx string, then add another string, say, for the azal, the string length may only change a few bytes, but it WILL be different.
