  1. Assuming you created your own DSDT and didn't do 5 and 6, there are no CPU specific edits, and therefore you can use any CPU.
  2. Updated from 10.9 to 10.10.2 using the following guide; http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla-os-x-including-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners-updated-for-yosemite/ Post 1 updated, staying with Chameleon for now, had to use VoodooHDA.kext for audio. I notice that the OS now waits for external drives for about a minute before rebooting; hfs: unmount initiated on storage on device disk3
  3. Thanks @ROBASEFR, like MAJ I too have been thinking about passing the torch due to being way too busy at other things, to the point that a hassle free updateble Mac mini hooked up to a JBOD OS X RAID is looking pretty good. I'll have to give your Clover instructions serious consideration if I decide to continue on though.
  4. Thanks aschar1, good to know. I’ve updated post 1 with DSDT_GA_EX58_UD5_F9m_v6.zip, and AppleRTC.kext items 9 (thanks aschar1) and 24 (thanks oldnapalm).
  5. Thanks aikidoka25. I did some more tests and found that there are two issues. 1. It takes longer for the machine to go to sleep in 10.9.x, about 20 seconds, compared to almost instantly with 10.8.x. 2. Using Remote Desktop to get to the machine and selecting Finder:Sleep just darkens the screen, compared to almost instantly sleeping the machine with 10.8.x. Solutions to sleeping the remote machine; A. Use Remote Desktop:Manage:Sleep. or B. While not using Remote Desktop do the following; [mac05:~] me% sudo pmset sleepnow; exit Sleeping now... logout Connection to mac05 closed. [mac07:~] me%
  6. Anyone with a GA-EX58-UD5 using my v5 DSDT, modified for AppleLPC.kext to load as of 10.8.5, having problems with manual and automatic software (Finder, pmset and Energy Saver) sleep, but sleep by briefly pressing the the power button still works? If there is a solution please share, thanks.
  7. aschar1, I updated to 10.9 (skipped 10.8.5) and with the modification to AppleLPC.kext it no longer sleeps (just a darker screen). Only software (Finder and pmset) functionality doesn't work, and I can still sleep it by briefly pushing the power button, but I need it to fully work for when I need to access it remotely. Did you have this problem? Thanks. ___ Update; I did some more tests and found that there are two issues. 1. It takes longer for the machine to go to sleep in 10.9.x, about 20 seconds, compared to almost instantly with 10.8.x. 2. Using Remote Desktop to get to the machine and selecting Finder:Sleep just darkens the screen, compared to almost instantly sleeping the machine with 10.8.x. Solutions to sleeping the remote machine; A. Use Remote Desktop:Manage:Sleep. or B.

  8. Highlight DSDTSE, right click, select `Search Google for "DSDTSE"', and the first link has the answer to your question.
  9. Even if you took someone else's DSDT from a machine using the same card, it's not advisable to do so. I would suggest extracting, then editing your own DSDT file.
  10. Thought I would take advantage of the sweet spot in RAM pricing to upgrade from 12GB to 24GB, as an 8GB DIMM (~75$) is less than twice as expensive as the 4GB (~45$). Needless to say, the X58 chipset only supports up to a 4GB, and the 8GB ones are on their way back to Newegg.
  11. Thanks, I had an S20 on order before I built the Gigabyte, and Lenovo made a mistake and had their RAM priced ridiculously low. When they discovered their mistake, they cancelled the order. I prefer moving kexts into place with Terminal commands, but Kext Wizard is convenient. Good luck with sleep, if you can find DSDT replacements for the patched kexts, you have a better chance.
  12. Thanks, I did build an EVGA dual CPU machine but sold it.The hardware components in the Gigabyte have remained the same, but I have updated the OS and BIOS.
  13. I updated to 10.8.3 using the App Store and rebooted. In my case there wasn't any install error, and I didn't need to rebuild the extensions cache at that point. I'm using an unmodified 10.8.3 AppleHDA.kext, LegacyHDA.kext from http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=196771&st=510 (14D), and a DSDT with layoutid 12 (hexidecimal 0x0C), sound is from black out. I had to correct GTX 285 PM per post 1, item 22, and then rebuilt the extensions cache for the next reboot; [mac05:~] root# vi /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext/Contents/Info.plist ... [mac05:~] root# touch /System/Library/Extensions [mac05:~] root#
