  1. Hi Ron, exactly when you disable from bios the integrated gpu everything works ok. Actually the problem appears only with fcpx and that is because it uses igpu more than the dedicated one.It renders faster and the whole workflow is going faster actually. Also since High Sierra, nvidia web drivers cause a lot of issues.I hope a good working stable release will come out soon from nvidia...
  2. Hi everyone! Since High Sierra, I have very bad experience with FCPX 10.4 in terms of performance. Video editing process is a nightmare because its very slow and the renderings are slower than a 5 year old MacBook Pro. In that moment I want to mention that all these years I'm using my Nvidia GPU only, and the iGPU is always disabled.After spending many hours to find a solution to my problem, I discovered a guide on the Internet (https://hackintosher.com/guides/fix-rendering-issues-fcpx-high-sierra/) that is suggesting to turn on iGPU and enable "hardware encoding supported" on my iGPU. I followed the instructions and I found that FCPX was much much faster than before. On the ACPI column in Clover Configurator the guide was suggesting to use 3 patches but only the 2 were listed, so I added the 3rd one "change PEGP to GFX0" and saved. When I open the the same column, the 3rd patch isn't listed but it shows normally if I open the config.plist with text. My problem in FCPX lies that, every time I will use transitions, effects, stabilizer, I get as a result serious glitch (green square patterns) effects! I tried also BruceX 5kK, and it took 45 secs to render. As a result I was having again green squares full of artifacts. Geekbench from the other gives very good scores with both iGpu and dGpu. I hope there is a solution to my problem, any suggestions?My System is:Intel i7 4790k16GB DDR3 2400mhz (Dual Channel) 11-13-13-31Asus Z97-PAsus GTX 770 2GBSamsung 850 EVO 250GB (10.3.3 main disk)Samsung 840 EVO 250GB (10.3.3 test disk)Dell U2413 (1920x1200) mDP connectionDell U2417H (1920x1080) HDMI connectionSMBIOS is iMac 14.2
  3. Hello everyone, I have problem with audio when I connect my headset to front panel. First of all my system is: Intel i7 4770k, Asus Maximus VI Formula, Asus Gtx 770 OC DCII 2GB. Im running successfully 10.9.2 and everything is working except the audio in front panel. I checked from System Preferences->Sound->Output that when I connect my headset the name changes from "internal speakers" to "headphones" but i can't hear anything.. also the mic from headset is working without any problems. Ofc if I disconnect my desktop speakers and connect the headset to motherboard's back panel everything is working fine. I have installed the audio driver ALC1150 with also Hdaenabler. Also to mention that in Win8.1 pro i don't have any problems with fp audio and last I have already checked that HD audio cable is connected to motherboard and not AC97. I tried many different audio drivers without any luck... Any help would be much appreciated guys Still can't find a solution.. anyone who can help?

    Random Freezes at Mavericks

    This is my last freeze from windowserver (attachment). The strange thing I noticed is if I power my pc for 1st time the power management doesn't work.. but if I restart and login again to Mavericks then it works. The great thing is that no freezes so far and this is the 3rd day Im running all day my pc.. I hope it keeps that way and the truth is that Im afraid to start experiment with power management options in case freezes come back again. Update: 06/01/2013 System is running for sixth day all day on and no freezes have shown up! Thanks to the new Bios revision my problem has been solved! CPU/GPU Power Management sometimes work and other don't but its not a real issue for me. Thanks again guys for your help.

    Random Freezes at Mavericks

    Thanks for the tips guys. Memories are 2 kits of KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX which are compatible with QVL's motherboard support list. Also they are set from Bios to XMP with timings 9-9-9-27 and running at 1.65V just like Kingston suggests for these models. Last to mention that my machine also runs win 8.1 pro without any problems so far and before I build this new rig they were running to an Asus P5Q3 motherboard which was running 10.8.5 and 10.9 successfully. Now my formula motherboard had Bios 0903 until today which I upgraded to 1203. Since then it runs 10 hours without any freezes so far but I need some extra time to be 100% sure that my problem have been solved... also with new bios version the gpu power management doesn't work anymore so propably my problem has been solved because most people who had freezes they were talking that they were occurring when gpu was going to 100% idle. I will leave it a few days like this all day open and running to see how it goes and then I will try to find a way to fix power management for my graphics card ( cpu power management works fine). Any thoughts - suggestions? P.S Happy New Year to everyone and I wish you all health, love, money and Zero problems for your hackintoshes this year!
  7. Hello everyone, Recently I made a new rig to run OSX and Win. My system is: Intel i7 4770K Asus Maximus VI Formula Asus GTX770 2GB OC Edition Kingston 16GB 1600Mhz C9 (4x4GB) I bought the system a month ago without gpu and installed Mavericks with myhack 3.3.1 successfully without any problems (just needed kext for audio). My problems started when I bought Asus GTX 770 10 days ago and since then my system suffering from random freezes. So last 10 days Im searching everyday to find a solution for my problem and I have try many methods which none of them worked for me. Before I analyze the steps I tried I have to mention that most times the freezes go away after 30 secs and sometimes I have to hard reset my system. Below are the steps I have followed so far: 1. Installing "Freeze Fix" app 2. Uninstalling Logitech software "LCC Connection Utility (for my mouse) 3. Change system definitions such as "Mac Pro 3.1" and "Mac Pro 5.1" etc 4. Do a fresh Installation 5. Install on a different hdd Mountain Lion 10.8.5 6. Remove any internal hdd/dvd device and leave only the installation drive 7. Remove any USB device that is connected to my PC. Unfortunately none of the above worked for me as a solution.. All these days since I installed my new Gpu I had an eye all time time in Console to see from where these freezes were coming from... So I noticed that every time I had a freeze I had also the same crash report to my console which is: "localhost kernel[0]: NVDA(OpenGL): Channel timeout!" (This is the report from my ML 10.8.5 installation) Also I have attached a screenshot from console which is from Mavericks 10.9.1 installation. As it seems the problem is probably connected with my Gpu and only I think. Is there anyone who has similar problems (I red that many people also with GTX 6XX series have similar freezes) and can give me a solution to my problem?
  8. Propably today I will receive Maximus VI Formula with 4770k and in weekend I will try to install Mavericks.. hope everything will be ok. I will let you know guys soon..
  9. Hi snifferpro Unfortunately Im using x-fi fatality champion series and I have installed a kext with kext wizard which supports only 2ch audio without mic support and I'm ok with it cause I'm using a usb headset. I haven't even try to see if its working with onboard audio but now I will give it a try tomorrow and I will let you know. Btw people Maximus VI Gene is already running Mavericks without any issues so far... Update: Onboard audio unfortunately isn't working... if I find a kext I will let you know.
  10. Onboard bluetooth unfortunately as Im searching its not supported yet.. hope a kext comes soon but again as Scott_donald said you should not have problem with a usb one. Clover is a must to boot from hdd and preferred for Asus boards.Im wondering if this process works with ROG and TUF series also. Speedstep controls your cpu power management so you can save power when your mac is on idle state just like windows but I think that it doesn't work on Mavericks so your cpu remain at normal speed in idle mode but can also use the turbo mode when a program asks for more processing power from cpu.
  11. Haven't try it yet but in the link i posted before has detailed walkthrough about how to do it. Also the official clover is http://cloverefiboot.sourceforge.net/
  12. Great so until now Asus Z87 Deluxe and Pro are compatible to run Mavericks! I would like to remind a guide that I found from the forum which explains step by step how to install clover. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/282787-clover-v2-instructions/ About Z87 Sabertooth i think that this board will work just fine as it has for lan controller Intel i217V and for audio Realtek ALC1150... I really don't find any reason why it shouldn't work.
  13. Hello everyone Im new to the forum and I would like to thank the people who made this real for PC users. I had success last years with my 2 pcs running from the version of Snow Leopard until Mountain Lion 10.8.5 using Asus Maximus Formula X38 and Asus P5Q3. As Im faithful to Asus I do not want to switch to Gigabyte boards which they have better support installing OS X and I thought that would be a good idea to open a topic about people who have Asus and they need help and support installing Mavericks. As for now I was able to install Mavericks to my P5Q3 and I have already post the installation process to OSx86 Wiki. Last Im building a new system with a 4770k that I have already bought and I don't know which Asus Z87 board to buy as I can't find too much info about successful stories over the internet. I am between Maximus VI Formula, Z87 Sabertooth and VI Hero and my main reason using this building is video editing (Davinci Resolve, FCPX) as these programs especially Resolve need a lot of power from Cpu/Gpu. As for the Gpu my budget wasn't big enough and I bought An Asus GTX 760 2GB. Any help choosing the most compatible boards would be much appreciated and besides that I hope many people find this topic interesting to post their own stories using Asus boards.
