  1. Never had these problems again? Because I have a 500GB Samsung... and Im still getting this shhhh for about 2 years... because of that I could never use osx86 as I need to. Problem is also being discussed here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...t&p=1770390
  2. NO, doesn't help. also setting it down from 1066 to 800 doesnt help. Was using protools and had loaded a huge drum sample library and it froz. sounds like this: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...729&hl=680i and have seen this issue in many other posts, but nobody ever has been able to solve it ;/
  3. I will give it another try with maxmem set. Hopefully it i will somewhen be fully working. Because I just need at 4GB+ I also have that problem with huge data transfers. It works for some minutes and then it will just stop t transfer with the transfer window open and the surface freezes quite simultaneously. I can still move the transferwindow arround but nothings working. But you for yourself never found another solution than setting down things at boot?
  4. I just remembered that I even tried running with just 2* 1GB in different slot positions and still had the error. And my windows 7 is running fine with 4 cores and 4*1GB in all slots aswell. It only happens in OSX. I get everything running leopard snow lion including updates, sound, internet, graphics (8800GTX) quartzextreme etc. but Ill get these random freezes, where the turning beachball thing comes up and programs stop running and after a while the whole working surface freezes too. Then I have to hard reboot. Sometimes I run ProTools(DAW like logic) and the issue appears, it starts hanging sound may even keep on running for some time. In any way I have to hard reboot. With just 1 core activated in bios everythings running well incl. 4*1GB RAM. But thats not the solution because Im in need of a strong system for programs with i.e. ProTools. Did u ever have the same problem on your nforce board? I think in an old post I saw that u had a 680i as well. BTW as info and for people searching keywords: Q6600 EVGA 680i SLI, P33 bios vers. EVGA 8800GTX, 2 monitors, full graphics 4*1GB RAM Kingston AppleNForceATA.imk64bit.kext EvOreboot.kext FakeSMC.kext IntelCPUMonitor.kext IOATAFamily.kext nForceLAN.0.64.5.kext NullCPUPowerManagement.kext NVClockX.kext atm running SL 10.6.8 but works just fine with Lion too
  5. Oh, well... in fact I have the EVGA 680i SLI. Is there any issue with especially that mobo? Didn't know about that. Does it for sure solve the problem if I use any other configuration than 4*1GB? Could u leave me any more information about that please? Thanks in advance! What would happen with i.e. 4*2GB? Thanks alot, appreciate ur work!

  7. Hi, any news on this? Maybe its not the ram because it runs fine with cpus=1 without touching any mem settings. And after adding core 2 u said it must be mem, but u havent tested cpus=3 yet. Hope there will be a solution for this, coz everythings running fine except this. Have been waiting for 2 years for this to be solved. *EDIT* BTW I also have the problem with 2 cores. With just one core its running totally fine also with full 4*1GB MEM
  8. have u solved this? i and lots of others have the same problem
  9. Have you solved this problem? I also have it. its the one where it runs when u have only 1 core activated but with 4 the spinning colored ball appears and nothing works anymore right?
