Last night, with some amazingly great help from RampageDev (http://rampagedev.wordpress.com) via email in just under 2 hours my SR-2 based hackintosh is ready to go.
I used myHack to install the OS, and RampageDev's custom DSDT, and then ##### Realtek ALC889, 3rd Party SATA, FakeSMC+Plugins, PS/2 Keyboard/Mice, USB 3.0 CalDigit and Bootloaders.
Sound will work as soon as I get the Creative USB adapter, and while my network works with my Pluggable USB adapter - I will be getting a PCI-E Dual Port network card next week to make it more better.
So - all in all - the system is ready, config as follows:
- EVGA SR-2
- Installed 10.8 then combo upgraded .1 .2 and .3
- 2 x X5680 @ 3.33GHz (not yet OCd)
- 6 x 8GB ECC RAM @ 1333GHz
- Cheapo 8400GS Graphics just until I get the real thing
- OCZ Vertex 2 Boot
Overall the system works great, but to be honest it feels a bit sluggish for what it really is. Clicking on Safari takes 3+ bounces to open it, and it takes 8 seconds to open EMPTY iPhoto library!
Running Geekbench2 I get a measly 12,000 score - where this machine on Windows gives me 32,000.
Something is definitely not right, I can feel it - but I would not even know where to begin at this point.
Any advice on how to continue so that I can get at least around 25K+ on GeekBench will tell me that the machine is working the way it should - and then at that point I can get more into it with an OC.
Thanks in advance! Hope PunkNugget or Tutor see this and can potentially help me out.
