  1. No they did not... we still need the TSCSync kext a huge step forward for me anyway, because I need to remove the battery off my mainboard whenever I need to use the bios flashback feature... otherwise it doesn’t work (I’ve seen online I’m not the only one with this issue).
  2. New bios (1301) has the option the unlock msr 0xe2 under advanced/CPU. So no need to patch bios / use kernel patches anymore.

    Intel Power Gadget 3.5.0

    it works for me on an X299, no Intel GPU, i9 7920x and AMD RX560
  4. After 10.13.2 Supplemental update, Safari results in a white page, I cannot connect to any site (ping and traceroute work). Chrome works fine. It seems appstore also is not connecting. Anyone else with this issue?

    Clover General discussion

    Hi, on my new X299-A PRIME ASUS board, when trying to: - inject ATI - inject FB Name injection does not work, I just have the "RadeonFrameBuffer" FB and card is recognised as AMD Radeon HD 7xxx. I need to switch to "Futomaki" in order to properly enable DIsplayport connector. I see in IOReg two devices: - GFX0@0 - GFX0@0,1 Injection worked fine with the same Graphics Card and X99-A ASUS Mainboard, same configurations. Setup: X299-A PRIME, X9 7920x, Radeon R9 270x Clover revision: 4359 Can someone please help me to understand what is happening? iMac.ioreg.zip
  6. I've seen this on geekbench browser... don't know if it's real... https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/3432492

    [pre-release] macOS Sierra 10.12.6

    Hi, previous _xcpm_bootstrap patch is not valid for 10.12.6 Beta 3. New _xcpm_bootstrap patch: from: 8d43 c4 83 f822771f to: 8d43 xx 83 f822771f for xx values please refer to Pike's blog https://pikeralpha.wordpress.com/2016/07/26/xcpm-for-unsupported-processor/ Thanks Pike for the explanation behind the original patch!!
  8. the procedure I've followed to patch the BIOS is the one in #293 , exactly the same procedure explained in the realFlow commentson Piker's blog.
  9. I've just installed the new 10.12 Beta (16A313a). Let's see if we get some kind of improvement. I'm using 3301 patched BIOS.
  10. Hi, I've tried nearly all settings and patched BIOS, but the system occasionally reboots. Strange thing is: - sometimes system is stable for the whole day - sometimes the system reboots after a few minutes (<5) after login If random reboot does not take place within 5 minutes, the system is (very) stable - I've left it on for more than one day without any issue... @SammierG: is your system ok or are you experiencing reboots after your changes? If no reboots, can you please share your BIOS settings (the AUTO options you set manually mentioned in your post)?
  11. Can you please share those settings? Thank you!
  12. I also tried with stock speed and it happens anyway No issues with El Capitan and Yosemite @4.6. On sunday I've been working all day long on a huge Project in apple logic with a high stress on CPU wih no issues. On monday morning it rebooted after 10 mins almost idle... checking again as Soon as I get Back home.
  13. checking your config over the week end. Thank you very much! Andrea
  14. Today I had a reboot... situation is definitely better but seems there is still something not 100% ok.
  15. I had some stability issues with all Sierra DP versions on my setup (i7 5820k, ASUS X99/A 3.1). I patched the Kernel as per Pike's blog comments in: XCPM for unsupported Processor… Specifically the comment below: To get a stable system, please read this blog article. I would start by disabling the 0x01A0 and 0x01AA MSR’s. You can do that by replace DC 33 00 00 with 00 00 00 00 I disabled the 0x01A0 and 0x01AA MSRs and system seems to be very stable. XCMP enabled, Geekbench score >27000 (3k more than El Capitan) overclocked @4.6 GHz. On a side note: Apple Logic performance issues disappeared with DP6 (I had CPU spikes resulting in overloads with DP5).
