  1. I managed to redeem the code with tor lol
  2. Mac os High sierra installation attempts

    With my Z97 i5 4690K, I added the firmware thing then updated to clover 4084, added APFS stuff then I just cloned my existing 10.12.5 to a secondary partition in a vmware 8 OS X 10.12. I ran the updater on my install through vmware, cloned back afterwards to second partition. It just booted first time, going to install nvidia driver now
  3. It was an Asus C8HM70-I/HDMI Motherboard and was bored waiting on my G3220 build parts coming (now has i5) so I put in my old Mac Pros 7300GT card into the PCI-E slot and fired it up in the case I had waiting. I cloned my existing OS X to a spare HD and I was using Mac Pro 1,1 as well and I think I just cloned the chameleon boot loader from that and it all fired up fine within 15 minutes of me building it. I used a usb wifi dongle with it What amazed me the most was how great it was to use. Really smooth and snappy. I did put my ATI 4870 in to try but I needed that for Mac. I swear it was like night and day between having windows on it and this was on a 500GB hd and not a SSD. Unbelievable! With windows it felt like hell using it but it was like a nice internet machine with Mac OS
  4. Ive been using 1 display and 10.10.3 then noticed that when my screen would sleep the GPU would stick at 795mhz (580gtx) Reinstalled 10.10.2 and still seem to have this lol odd This should work... right? Its what fwood had on his. plistedit pro says the full plist is fine and no errors.

  5. Any luck with this, 10.10 and 580 GTX dual screen power savings? It seems to only drop mhz when i only have 1 display
  6. I will try with default EFI settings and see if it still boots Edit: seems fine
  7. I just made a new build using the G3220 53W (Plan to use for about 5 months then go i5) and am trying to get it working and came across here While I was waiting on my parts coming I got 10.10 to run on a celeron 847 1.1ghz and thought this would be just as easy Thanks for guide. Works great!
  8. Ichat and the pre- leopard

    They work excellent on my Mac Pro whoopepeeeee
  9. nuh uh http://www.apple.com/macmini Still just the Core Duo I assume they used nvidia because ATIs X1800XT series are high power consumption cards under load and would be way too much for the deisgn (X1800XT is 100W!) 7900GT is around half that but a littl slower so think how cool the ones that are in the iMac will be
  10. The same one with just the CPU's changed?
  11. lol I can't imagine a P4 being anywhere near as fast as a dual G5. In my expereince, P4 is a slow hot POS I get xbench of 240 on 3.6ghz ASUS P5W DH Deluxe Everything but the remote, sound in and onboard wifi (can't test that com port or whatever it is) - sound needs modded to work, changing numbers in some files - firewire works sleep - sleeps fine until display driver installed target disk mode - obviously not raid functionality - don't know Intel E6600 @ 3.6GHz what can I say? It is fast and both cores work 2GB G.Skill NR PC2-6400 It works... ATI X1800XT Plays games at 1920x1200 with full CI and QE without mouse tearing - DVI doesn't display any picture and have to use one of my vga adaptors! Sucks as I use a high res 1920x1200 display. Don't need a 2nd display so haven't tested that - needed modded with boris patch Pioneer DVR109 Works with full support from the OS ASUS DVD-E616A2 Reads disks fine (it isn't a burner) Seasonic S12 430W Great silent PSU Zalman CNPS9500 & VF-900 The VF-900 is so much quieter then the stock cooling and also has a lower idle than competitors Antec P180 Great case just be careful not to scratch it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It also file shares fine Jas 10.4.6 I use a SATA HD
  12. When I had the P965 - sata, ide, network and sound never worked. USB did and booting from usb is SLOWWW!!!!!!!!
  13. My PC eats intel iMacs for breakfast :D Don't forget the iMac isn't Core 2 Duo which isn't as new/good technology + lower ghz ASUS P5W DH Deluxe has ability for Intel multi-core ATI X1800XT whoops X1600XT
  14. with no disk test with desk test I need RAID!
  15. Hi Does anyone know of a usb, pci or pci-e Intel OS X compatible soundcard which features AISO 2 sound for programs like guitar rig when they are finally made native (or thru rosetta)? My onboard sound doesn't even have input nevermind AISO support! Its the only thing I need now Thanks I have tried searching and all search finds is asio in occasional
