  1. No edit SSDT . What is important - model definition must be exactly MacPro 3.1 for example on MacPro 6.1 PM dont work. And of course latest OS X 10.9.2 build 13c44. J upgrade motherboard BIOS to version 4608.
  2. Only processor multiplier was set to 44 - no others overcklocking settings. CPU is now 4.5 GHz. Power management works great and multiplier switch from 12 x in idle (14,18, 32, 34, 35 , 39 ) to 44 x in max stress. Sleep, speedstep works too. J tested this configuration on new FinalCutPro X 10.1 and Compressor . 3 hours Video AVCHD project was converted to H.264 BluRay about 1 hour 40 minutes. Computer is very stable. My config: Sabertooth X79 , CPU i7-4930K, 16GB 1886 MHz DDR3 , GTX 680 , CPU cooler Macho 140 . No others coolers but later J connect two case coolers. J tested 45 nad 46 multiplier and get higher Geekbench but J get something freeze - that will be safe to leave 44. One little problem is HWMonitor - that not detect CPU temperatures only processor heatsink. But in max stress CPU cooler is only softly warm . J think that CPU temperatures not exceed 70 C. All others hardware like USB 3, audio, GTX card works perfect.
  3. New version OS X 10.9.2 is awesome ! Now my geekbench is 31355. Here is a link: http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/367305
  4. My kext VooDooHDA 2.7.3 was install from MB 6.0...Installed kext from another source - no problem too. You can delete Apple HDA .kext and EnablerHDA.kext before install. Maybe add device ID + vendor ID to info.plist but on my motherboard audio device appear in sound preferences without add device ID . J use modified VooDooHDA kext 2.7.3 because were little issues ; Low Volume and noise at load from Gain 90. Sounds is wonderful Here is a link to modified kext: http://www.tonymacx86.com/audio/46043-modified-voodoohda-2-7-3-no-noise-pops-192khz-sample-rate-3.html I was testing your kext ALC892/10.8.4 . Safari sound little skipping , iTunes and Premiere sound not acceptable . VooDooHDA 2.7.3 is only solution for Sabertooth X79/i7 4930.
  5. J delete Apple HDA kext. Only VoodooHDA Kext is in S/L/A . My audio card is ALC 892 it is different than ALC898 in P9X79 Pro board. Sound is ok in Safari, iTune , Premiere Pro.
  6. Problem is solved ! J install drivers VooDooHDA v.2.7.3 and sound is perfect Sounds from Safari or iTunes is very clear Only version 2.7.3 works correctly , newer driver 2.8.4 or older dont work. Only on Mavericks . ML and probably Snow Leopard no chance to get correctly audio with Sabertooth/i7 4930K. Additional was installed new SSDT from rampagedev.wordpress.com . My build is finish )
  7. J have a problem with audio on ASUS Sabertooth X79 and CPU i7-4930K 3.4 GHz, BIOS 4302 My audio Realtec ALC 892 is stuttering and skipping . Problem is on 10.8.5 ML and Mavericks 10.9 too. J install and tested ALL drivers from Lion and newest for Mavericks from Toleda. Drivers from Lion (from [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] 4.6.1 ) are better but Audio is still not good. This drivers works very well with my old CPU 3930K but not on 4930K. J try standard motherboard settings at 3.4 GHz no overclocking . All other hardware works very good and my system ML/Mavericks is very stable My Geekbench 3.0 is 27172 at 4.8 GHz ! Render 5 hours project at max speed no problem. http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/126471 Maybe old BIOS version 4210 ( for IvyBridge -E) for Sabertooth X79 is solution but is not available on Asus webside ...J think that Bios 4302 hurt audio . Is any chance to download old 4210 ?
