  1. Oh i see. So why have they locked this register? Is it only OS X that writes to it? By modifying bios I guess that I'll gain the same avantages in SL and Lion as well so that I won't have to use speedstepper, right? Another slightly related questions. How's it with overclocking, I run my 2600k@5GHz will this cause any problems for speedstepping, sleep or anything like that?
  2. Thanks I'll test this. However I'll probably wait a few weeks to do this as I noticed that I've lost my 16GB USB stick so I've only got a 4GB one and I've got exams coming up next week. Anyway thanks for the information, may I ask exactly what this modification does, why just that hex modification, is there any explanation somewhere? Would be fun to know exactly what I'm really doing.
  3. I've got the Asus P8P67 (non pro) and is considering installing Mountain Lion, is it possible to get sleep working? I'm running Snow Leopard right now with sleep working, I was running Lion but sleep were never working properly so I eventually went back to SL. I've seen people talking about flashing the bios and it seems like the best way but is there custom bios available for the P8P67? Have only found for the other models.
  4. I've got the following specs Asus P8P67 i7 2600k 16GB ram HD 6870 I'm running OS X Lion with Chimera, I've also tried Chameleon RC5 but didn't get better results so I keep using Chimera. Now I did have sleep working in Snow Leopard so it shouldn't be a hardware fault. My problem is that I can't get sleep to work, as best I've gotten it to sleep but KP at wakeup. Right now it's not even going down in sleep mode properly (screens sleep but fans don't spin down). For the DSDT.aml I'm using an autogenerated one, I found this one http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...259066&st=0 but couldn't get it to compile and I'm a complete noob at all this so I can't seem to figure out how to do this. I've disabled PPL and reverted everything to stock clocks and auto, eventually I'd like to do some overclocking but right now I just want to get everything working. I've used speedstepper to patch my AICPUPM kext but still not getting it to work. Please any help would be appreciated, I've tried fixing it a lot but it seems like every time I try something new I mess up even more and there so much information some conflicting with other so I don't even know where I should begin to look.
  5. ATI Radeon 6xxx, working QE/CI

    Yeah I tend to get a garbled screen at bootup on two of my 4 monitors (one DisplayPort one HDMI connected with a DVI adapter) but it works if I change the resolution and then back again. Also I've gotten twice or so when playing a 1080p youtube video in the extra large mode in cosmic panda while draging around the browser windows fast between screens but then it've only affected the chromium windows.

    Awesome, looking forward to it.
  7. ATI Radeon 6xxx, working QE/CI

    I'm running a AMD Radeon HD 6870 (ASUS DirectCU http://usa.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/AMD_Ser...70_DC2DI2S1GD5/ ) and I've got 4 monitors, one DP, one connected with an active DP-DVI adapter and two connect on the DVI ports. This card isn't a reference HD 6870 and it doesn't have the HDMI port instead I've got two display ports and two dvi ports. Now my dilemma is to get all 4 monitors working with a framebuffer. If I don't load a framebuffer and let it default to the RadeonBuffer all monitors work fine and I get picture on all of them but whenever I load a framebuffer (test all listed for HD 6xxx series) I can't get the top DVI-I port to work. At first I though this was because my card weren't reference design but I decided to read through every post in this thread from page one to 29 (or 30 now) and so I did. After done so it seems like everyone have this problem, I'm unable to find any evidence that anyone have gotten the HD 6870 to work with 4 screens with a framebuffer so that DVD, Geekbench and such works. Is this right and if so is there anything I can do about it? Currently I'm running without a framebuffer as I need 4 monitors but it's quite annoying that lots of games and some applications doesn't work. If there were a way to change framebuffer without restarting it would be fine for now at least as I could be without a monitor while running a game or such. I've read that the framebuffers are mapped to the ports on the GPU, isn't it possible to create a new framebuffer mapped the same way as the default AtiFramebuffer so that all ports work? I don't care if I have to repatch every update if I can get it to work. At this moment I'm running Lion.

    Your USB pinout is technically wrong, you've mixed up d+ (green) with d- (white). At first I followed your pinout but when I measured the usb pins with a multimeter I got d- in the d+ spot and vice verse so I swapped them so they're red, green, white, black. Then I connected it to my machine and tested with an USB mouse and it worked perfectly. So for anyone who might see this after me and attempt the same thing, be a aware that you should swap data + and - in the picture. The audio one were perfect so that's all good.
  9. DSDT for Asus P8P67

    How much space will this require? I'd partition my SSD as I like to have everything on there.
  10. DSDT for Asus P8P67

    I've got a new computer (P8P67 with 16GB ram, 2600k and HD 6870) and would like to hackint0sh it soon, originally I was just planning on going the normal Chameleon route or something like that however this seems very interesting. Are you planning on finishing your guide soon? I'd very much like to have a fully working system with everything working including overclocking and sleep. If I'd install OSX now with Chameleon bootload could I then at a later point upgrade to use your method when your guide is done or will I have to do a full whipe?
  11. Power Mac G5 Rear I/O-panel tips?

    I talked with another guy who said that the ethernet will not work with significant work as Apple use some sort of 5vdc magnetics in there, I didn't really understand exactly what he meant but his conclusion were to just ditch it and replace it with a keystone.
  12. I've heard that you can't use the original one, whenever this is true or not is still unknown for me. You cold probably just put a keystone there.
  13. No it's not for hotswapping but they are optional; as old molex to sata adapters don't supply 3,3v it's rearly used if ever.
  14. I'm currently working on my G5 mod and ran into another problem I want to reuse the original sata power cable however there only seem to be 4 cables on the G5 sata power while a normal have 5 so I don't know which cable should connect to which cable on the ATX PSU and which cable I'm supposed to skip. I soldered at needle to my multimeter tip and made the measurements myself. So for anyone who might need I decided to put the "pinout" here. I'm calling the cable closest to sata power pin 1 for #1 and going up to right. # Color code Description #1 Black GND for sata power pin 4, 5, 6 #2 Red +5VDC #3 Black GND sata power pin 10, 11 ,12 #4 Yellow +12VDC It's the orange +3.3VDC that's "missing". I hope this is helpful for someone.
  15. Power Mac G5 Rear I/O-panel tips?

    I think you misunderstood my question, I want to use the ports on the original G5 Logicboard by cutting of that piece of PCB but I'm looking for pinout and tips on how to do it the best way and common errors.
