  1. I just wanted to say thanks for this great tool. I have a GA-EX58-UD5 / i7 930 and used Kakewalk 2.2 everything worked perfectly. I didn't install one tweak or anything and everything is running, audio/vid/lan/sleep etc. I installed the 10.6.3 update and it's perfectly stable. It took about 1hr start to finish. I had one question I have seen other threads like http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=196771 there are tweaks that they say keep the heat down etc... have these types of tweaks been added to 2.2? Or are there other things you recommend doing for a setup like I have. On the page I linked to he has a new DSDT for the GA-EX58-UD5/i7 930 just not sure if using that would be better the the DSDT that Kakewalk installed, or if it's the same
  2. The reason for the 285 is it's the only non Quadro gfx card supported in CS5 for the new Mercury Engine http://www.adobe.com/products/premiere/performance/ I'm still not 100% sure this would would on OSX86 but I'm hopeing
  3. I'm getting a new setup and my plan is to get a GA-EX58-UD5/Core i7 930/12G RAM. Along with it it want to get the GTX 285 1GB (Newegg# N82E16814143190) I want to get this card because I do video editing with the upcoming Adobe CS5 it can use this card for acceleration that is just amazing for video editing. Will this be an ok card to pick for a OSX? I have read about some problems with the 2GB version of this card, but not much on the 1GB I’m not sure if that’s because it works or not. Basicly am I safe with this card on OSX? Thanks PS: Any advice on the setup will be much appreahsated as well below are the parts I'm thinking about. GeForce GTX 285 1GB 512-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814143190 CORSAIR XMS3 12GB (6 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16814143190 GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD5 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16820145235 Core i7-930 Bloomfield 2.8GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Desktop Processor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16813128362
  4. Right now I have a core2 box with an Intel Badaxe 2 8G Ram and a Nivida Evga 8800, I have been very happy with it, everything works very well in Windows/Mac, but I want to upgrade. I want to get the best supported core 7i motherboard I can, I’m thinking about the GA-EX58-UD5 it seems like everyone likes Gigabyte and there are some posts on how to get everything working. If I go with this will EVERYTHING work on the mobo? Is the best mobo to get hands down or is there something better or close, for the i7? I’m going to put in the i7-960, and 12GB or RAM. (See Newegg numbers below) On the video card I want to get the GTX 285 1GB, because I do video editing with the upcoming Adobe CS5 it can use this card for acceleration that is just amazing for video editing. Will this be an ok card to pick for a OSX? I have read about some problems with the 2GB version of this card, but not much on the 1GB I’m not sure if that’s because it works or not. Below is what I’m thinking on the parts LMK if you have changes that will make it work better with OSX. Thanks so much http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814143190 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145235 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128362
