  1. Seems New Egg only sells to Americans . Any idea where to buy this card online that has internaltional shipping for those of us who live outside their empire?
  2. Hmmm... How about chipsets for PCIe USB 3.0 add on cards?

    NEW MacMod 2013 build: Lemon Lime Twist !

    Got my vote too... cool
  4. Anyone? or am I the only one on the fourms with a Mac Pro 5,1?
  5. I am interested to find out which USB contollers and chipsets are supported by Apple's native USB 3.0 driver in Mac OS X 10.8.4 and beyond. To be clear, I would like to find which contollers can just be dropped into a Mac Pro or a Hackintosh and they just work... (BTW - Please don't suggest Caldigit or HighPoint or hacking a NEC card to use drivers from either of them. Both offer half a55ed support for OS X at best)
  6. I am using the Intel Storage Matrix v8.9 drivers. For the drives that show up (optical upper optical lower, bay 1 and bay 2), performace is better under AHCI. I do seem to recall that the SATA controllers are different in the 5,1 (ICH10R) vs. an older ESxxx controller but not sure if that matters in this case but I suspect it might in terms of patching the MBR. I did see a post somewhere (I can't seem to find it again) that mentioned a code change to the MBR patch to disable combined mode under the AHCI on the 5,1. I used patchedcode.bin to patch the MBR but not sure if it was the latest version floating around out there or not or if there is a version for ICH10R Mac Pros. Any thoughts?
  7. Mac Pro 5,1... the last Pro

    bootcamp is working PPC?

    Folks, bootcamp can not and does not work on PPC Macs... time for you to upgrade to an Intel Mac or build a Hackintosh...
  9. Aside from looking like a stealth enabled lift lobby dust bin, I wonder what specs Apple will offer on the Configure To Order side...
  10. Wow... a free chance to give the American spies 50GBs of your personal data... sounds like a great deal! :-D
  11. Hi All, I'd like to say thanks to all the posters regarding AHCI mode under Windows 7 on Mac Pros. I have AHCI working now with my 2010 Mac Pro 5,1 and I'm seeing a significant speed boost for my SSD dedicated to Windows 7 Enterprise 64-Bit. I did run into an issue though where the SATA ports for drive bays 3 and 4 do not show any drives attached. I'd like to be able to use all six ports if possible. Is there any way to enable those two ports or am I stuck in combo mode under AHCI with Windows 7? My Drives are: Optical Upper: Apple stock DVD burner Optical Lower: 4TB HGST Hard Drive (for non-boot use; HFS+) Bay 1: 1TB HGST Hard Drive (for non-boot use; NTFS) Bay 2: 512GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD (Windows 7 Enteprise 64-Bit Boot; NTFS) Bay 3: 1TB HGST Hard Drive (for non-boot use; HFS+) <<Does not show up under Windows 7>> Bay 4: 512GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD (MacOS X 10.8.4 Boot) <<Does not show up under Windows 7>> FYI (and unrelated to my Mac Pro post) - I've checked the 2012 MacBook Pro (Retina) and 2012 11" MacBook Air and found that both seem to have AHCI enabled by default under Windows 7 Enterprise 64 Bit... Both are using the same chipset for storage.
