  1. I just installed Lion and would like to make sure my overclock is taking effect correctly. I'm running a 2500k @ 4.8ghz on a Asus P6P67 Motherboard. About this mac is reporting 3.3ghz (stock speed) as are other applications within Lion. Speedstep is disabled in bios. This is different from what I've seen in previous OSX releases. Also, the results of sysctl -a are .busfrequency: 400000000 hw.busfrequency_min: 400000000 hw.busfrequency_max: 400000000 hw.cpufrequency: 3300000000 hw.cpufrequency_min: 3300000000 hw.cpufrequency_max: 3300000000 However, I appear to be scoring the correct scores in geekbench for this CPU so I'm thinking it is indeed setup correclty? Anyone else seeing this? Geekbench report 32bit: http://browse.geekbench.ca/geekbench2/view/439619
  2. Edit, was able to finally get this working. I need to install chameleon to the USB drive first and then install your installer file or I just get the blinking curser. After the install I'm not getting sound or network with my standard p8p67 rev 3.1. This is after re-installing your installer to my hard drive post install. Any ideas on how to get these working? <edit> sound and network now working after [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url]
  3. Not sure what else I can try. Maybe it's the release of lion that I'm using? tried two separate usb sticks and getting blinking curser on each of them. I also tried your boot5 ISO (cd) and that results in a reboot when loading the lion install disk or usb.
  4. I can't get this to work. First off, I can't get the USB to boot. I have the correct HD mode, I have extras and I've reinstalled it about 3 times. If I try to boot the USB from my previous boot menu, I am getting the kernel panic on boot. I am running the P8P67 rev. 3.1. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  5. I've been using a Dell Mini 9 w/ Snow Leopard for over a year now and have been very happy with it. However, I have the upgrade itch and was thinking about going with a Asus 1201N mainly due to the slightly larger screen, faster CPU and GFX. Is this a worthwhile upgrade? if not, should I be looking at another netbook or should I wait for another product?
  6. argh, sound not working after updating to 10.6.5 even after restoring the kexts :/ <edit> got it working with voodooHDA which I had installed before but was causing kernel panics after upgrading to 10.6.5. I downloaded the latest voodooHDA which itself caused a kernel panic during the install but appears to be functioning correctly after the reboot.
  7. I am getting bad lag after about 1 day of use. Opening/closing windows is choppy as is pretty much everything. I am using a 8800 GT w/ 12Gb of ram and this rev.2 board. What is odd is that everything functions perfectly for about a day and then the problems start... a reboot corrects the problem. Anyone else have this issue and know the fix?
  8. Geekbench 2.0

    was that with your i5 at 7ghz? very nice. ^ <edit> I've also noticed that having all 8 threads on increases the score by about 200.
  9. argh! the trendnet card is not working either. It detects in sl 64bit but is just not working. I can't get dhcp and when I set a manual IP, I can see traffic going out of the interface with tcpdump but no return. Can anyone recommend a working 1000 NIC for 64bit snow leopard? Wish I saw that rev 2 mb's had this problem before buying :/
  10. Does anyone have onboard networking working with the rev 2 and 64bit install? I've tried just about everything and it's a no go. I guess I'm going to have to go grab a trendnet card tomorrow :/
  11. Geekbench 2.0

    i7 @ 4.2ghz
  12. x86 Xbench Results Thread

    The tweaking part was getting the cpu speed from 160 to where it is now. i7's and the x58a-ud3r have problems and took a bit of tweaking to get it at the "normal" speed needless to say, the new system is considerably faster than the old one
  13. Unbelievably LOW Xbench score!

    woah thats slow
