  1. CPU temperature in iStat

    You're absolutely right, I checked RealTemp in W7 and it's (Cel vs Fah). How can I check to make sure SpeedStep if configured correctly? If you have time I can upload my DSDT file, or if can point me to the correct forum to read. I got the DSDT from a EX58-ud5 user, but everything seems to work on my GA-X58a-UD5 except for sound. I know it's the difference between the 889a vs 889 audio on the boards. I have to learn more about DSDT so I can correct the differences (id stuff, audio etc. ) between the EX58 and GA-X58a in the DSDT file I'm using. Slowly but surely I'm reading and tweaking my system. Thanks for your help.
  2. Hi Fzkl, I have the same board (x58a-ud5) and no sound. Did you get sound to work, if so how? Thanks
  3. CPU temperature in iStat

    Is is possible for iStat to report incorrect temperatures in 10.6.3 ? I have readings of 99-100deg across all 4 cores during idle in SL 10.6.3, and 39 to 42deg in Windows 7 during idle. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 (Bios F5) Intel Core i7-930 @ 3.8ghz OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3-2000 (PC3 16000) 10-10-10-30 (1.65v) Noctua NH-U12P SE2 120mm Cooler Cooler Master ATCS 840 Case Corsair TX 950W Power Supply BFG GeForce GTX 260 O.C. 896MB
  4. After 2 installs, my system will not boot. The first install, I selected patches pertaining to my MOB and the computer remained on the apple screen after a successful install and restart. The second install, I selected every patch except for "Language and Additional Fonts" and the computer restarted with the fatal error restart screen. I can obviously select different combinations of patches, re-install the software and hope that all will work, but the install is taking approx 80 minutes. I would appreaciate any advise. Listed below is my equipment and patch combinations that were selected, along with a screen pic of the "-v" log. Equipment: MSI G31M3-F (mob), Intel E2180 (2.0GHZ), 4GB Ram (Corsair DDR2/800), Generic IDE Dvd burner, Seagate 200GB IDE (single partition) iDeneb v1.3 10.5.5 Leopard OSx86 First install patch selection:ALC883, ALC883 Patched by Taruga, ICHx Fixed, Kernel 9.4.0 StageXNU, Enternet (all selected), AppleSMBIOS 800, Intel GMA X3100. This resulted in a successful install with a restart with the frozen apple screen. Second install patch selection: X11, Patches 10.5.5 Ready (selected the main box), Applications (selected the main box). This resulted in a successful install with a restart with a fatal error restart screen, and lots of command line text. Thanks for any advise.
