  1. Finder Hangs at Startup

    Solution: add "dart=0" to your bootflags. Rob
  2. Hey guys! I have a problem for a few days now and the problem is that after my hackintosh starts up Finder is often unresponsive and I have the spinning wheel of death ( I can open other apps, like Chrome or Skype they work fine ) but Finder seems to have a problem. I didn't really change anything, I have my hack for over a year now and it works perfectly fine. It also boots perfectly fine as always but then Finder hangs for 1-2 mins before it works again. It's just very annoying and I'm scared something might be not right. Any help on this? I also attached my .hang file for you guys ... Any help highly appreciated! My hack: 3930k i7, oc 4.5ghz 32gb Ram, 480gb SSD GTX 680 4GB Running: 10.9.2 Thanks! Dave Finder_2014-04-22-151352_Macintosh.hang.zip
  3. GTX 680 4GB shows wrong GPU Memory

    So you think all is good with my GPU ?
  4. Dear Community, I have a GTX 680 from Zotac with 4GB memory and here are the specs: http://www.zotac.com/products/graphi...fications.html As you can see the core clock is 1006 MHz which shows in my HWMonitor as 1Ghz so it's correct. However, when I look at the GPU 1 Memory, it says 1.47 Ghz even though in the specs it says that the Memory Clock is 6008 MHz and the memory size 4GB. Is that a cosmetic problem or is my GPU really running 4 times slower? Any help appreciated! Dave
  5. You helped me out a lot man! Thank you so much! Dave
  6. Hey iFire, Thank you for the link. However I think what I need is this: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/289791-fixed-by-dsdt-edit-10c-temps-500rpm-fans/ Do you think you could help me editing my DSDT ? Best Dave
  7. Okay I'll give it a try ! Thank you ! Dave PS: I've read that in 10.9.2 they added native PM to LGA 2011 boards...
  8. Hey iFIRE Thank you a lot for your support so far! I'm very reluctant to try to flash my bios with this patch, simply because I'm very ignorant and maybe I'll mess up my whole system and I can't really let that happen because I'm working on a big project right now. Is there no other way? If I do patch my BIOS, do I need to delete NullCpu again and use vanilla AICPM or patched AICPM? Is there a way that we can do this through DSDT ? Thanks man really appreciate your help! Dave
  9. I just tried using a patched AICPM (http://www.osx86.net/files/file/197-appleintelcpupowermanagement-kext-10-9-dp1/). After deleting NullCpu and installing the patched AICPM it gave me KP on boot. Also I updated my BIOS and it does have PM native. Can someone help me make a DSDT for me I can use? Would be amazing. Thank you! Dave PS: I do have 2 states with NullCPU 1.5ghz and 4.03ghz
  10. Here's my IOReg dump. As I see it AppleLPC.kext is active and running :S I tried patching DSDT but I have no idea how to do it, can someone help me do it with the info here in this thread? The thing is I already have installed VoodoTSync.kext (with IOCPUNumber=11) but it still says unsynchronized :S If I delete NullCpu than it gives me KP. I see, I think I need a patched DSDT. But I tried it and it didn't work ( I also attached my DSDT in this thread ) can someone help me? Best Dave io_reg.zip
  11. Hey guys! After updating to Mavericks I noticed that my temps were higher than usual. Installed HWMonitor and it shows me that my overclocked CPU is now at 4.03 GHZ (in ML i OC'd to 4.5ghz) and it has higher temps than in ML. I've heard that this has to do with DSDT and SSDT. I attached mine in this thread, is there anything you guys can do? My board is a Sabertooth x79, with an overclocked i7 3930k (x32 multiplier, blck 126.5) (actually multiplier is higher but mavericks only supports up to x32 multiplier) Also I have "Generate P states and Generate C states" in my boot plist and it says that it couldn't generate them. Also I get the message that I have unsynchronized tsc for cpu :S Speedstep doesn't seem to work either, just have 2 states (I have NullCpu installed, without it I get KP). Any help? Mavericks runs fine, it's just the messages I get in the beginning and the higher temps that keep worried. Let me know! Thanks Dave PS: I tried generating my own ssdt and dsdt but I think I didn't suceed. I also attached my generated dsdt/ssdt in this thread. I'm afraid of using them because I get two warnings in ssdtPRGen which are "cpu-type may be set improperly 0x0501 instead of 0x0601" and "system-type may be set improperly 3 instead of 0" - I have no idea how I can make these warnings go away. I can't afford to loose my machine so I hope you guys can help me! PPS: I also attached my temperature readings which are at IDLE modes. PPS2: I also attached my boot.plist and smbios.plist - Maybe they can help too! Thank you so much! Dave PPS3: Here are the messages I receive in the beginning: Here you can see that it doesn't generate any P or C states. In this you can see how NullCPUPowerManagement starts working, the processor gets detected by AppleACPICPu but then later it says "Unsynchronized TSC for CPU 1-11" (even though I have voodoTSC for my processor 3930k 6 core) Here you can see that somehow /dev/rdisk2s2 (NO WRITE) that there is a no write error? The rest looks fine to me, what do you think? Here you can see that there is some kind of "Sound assertion" in AppleHDAController at line 1303, 581 and 352. What does that mean? Audio works fine but sometimes it crackles. Is there anything I can do? Also important is to see that AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement seemed to have timed out (probably because of NullCPU?) again, what can I do? Also it says that it "failed to set c-state demotion data: -1" After that it boots up fine. Let me know what I can do! I always like to give back to this community and hope that someone will and can help me! Best Dave plists.zip my_own_dsdt_ssdt.zip dsdt_ssdt.zip

  13. i7 3930K OC 4.5GHZ TEMPS

    Thank you for the tip. I'm not sure if that has to do with anything but in my case I only have a DVD/Blu-Ray drive in the tray and the rest is empty so I put a 120mm fan in there. Now because I have too many HD's in the HD Tray I put one SSD in front of the 120mm fan. Maybe there's not enough air coming in? However I think that can't be the problem since an SSD is tiny (even with a fitting). (EDIT: Here's a video so you can maybe see the situation better: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvJWmLS8Jc8 sry for bad quality) I also installed a new 140mm+ fan inside the case but the temps are still higher than previously. Lowering the VCore would cause a more unstable system. The corsair h100i seems fine also with new thermal paste the temperatures are 2-4 degrees higher than it used to. I also recently updated Premiere Pro and after putting my GTX 680 in the supported cards again I think this time premiere uses more CPU than GPU (even though cuda enabled). I have a screenshot of how my temps are during playback in premiere pro. (http://i.imgur.com/i5169gv.png & http://i.imgur.com/wh1TfYR.png ) Do you see a problem in those temperatures? Do you think I should clock down? Is my CPU getting old? Let me know what you think. Rob IDLE TEMPS: http://i.imgur.com/lUjeqCz.png & http://i.imgur.com/UQkneKU.png
  14. Hey guys, My current Hackintosh was built about a year ago (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/top...kintosh-suite/) and I OC'd it to 4.5GHZ stable (Sabertooth x79 3930K Overclocking) It has performed perfect throughout the year I never had a problem and I still don't have a problem, everything runs fine. I'm editing a feature film right now and because of that I needed to upgrade my harddrives. I installed 1x 4TB and 1x 250GB SSD to my system and they work fine, however I see that my temps are a bit higher now. I'm not sure why, I posted a pic in this topic as well so you can see my temps. Usually I had around 39-42 degrees in idle, now it's 43-45 degrees. I even installed a new fan inside the case. My specs: Core i7 3930K (OC 4.5GHZ) 32GB Ram Asus Sabertooth x79 Are these temps normal? Under heavy load it doesn't go over 80 degrees. Let me know Best Dave
  15. Hi all! After I sold my old modded G5 (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/268182-davevegas-g5-power-hack/) I upgraded my system and this is the result! Enjoy! What's inside: Asus Sabertooth X79 Core i7 3930K Overclocked 4.5 Ghz 32GB Corsair 2133Mhz Zotac GTX 680 4GB 480 GB SSD (MAX OS X) + 240GB SSD (WIN7) 2x2TB WD 1x4TB WD 2xCrossOver 2K Monitors Performance: Running stable at 4.5Ghz (VCore 1.378) Hope you like it!
