  1. Confused about RAID

    Ah yeah, it was supposed to be for splitting. I was going to RAID 0 my two 1 tb seagates and install OS X on an SSD, and back everything on a 2 tb external. I have seen some like drastic performance increases with OS X software raid, although it taxes the cpu a bit. But i have 2600k so I'm not too worried.
  2. Confused about RAID

    Ah so, if I want to have RAID arrays for both operating systems, I need minimum 4 drives if I don't want the boot loader stuff messing up (this happened to my partitioned boot camped drive on my macbook). Hm, I'm really beginning to wonder whether a software RAID will be worth the trouble.
  3. Confused about RAID

    Hmm, I see. Thanks. If i use disk utility to RAID the drives, how would I go about installing Windows on it?
  4. Confused about RAID

    I think I've just been going through too much information, some of which may be outdated information. The questions I have are: 1) Does the new version of chameleon support RAID 0 config? 2) What's the difference between [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] and Chameleon bootloader? 3) I have a gigabyte z68x ud4-b3. I'm assuming the marvell controller onboard allows for SOFTWARE RAID config, not hardware raid? I read a lot on the differences between software and hardware RAID. Do the same cons of software RAID significantly apply today? (load on host processor, greater susceptibility to data failure, etc.) Sorry if these questions are elementary, I feel like the information I come across pulls me all sorts of directions.
  5. anyone? I surely can't be the only one experiencing this. Maybe a useful question would be, is there anyone with this motherboard that has no problem ocing?
  6. I mean, this can't be an issue unique to hackintoshes. But I just completed a g5 mod, and I'm pulling out my hair trying to do a simple oc on i7 2600k. No matter what vcore settings between 1.2 - 1.475 and multipliers 41x - 46x, I keep getting this cold boot loop. It'll boot and shut off after 3 seconds over and over, randomly working maybe the 3rd or fourth time. Sometimes it'll tell me that there was a boot failure due to unstable overclocks. I've updated bios to f8, and as far as I know, the f9 beta only addresses compatibility with 22 nm processors. The thing is, once I get past the boot loop, I can run prime 95 fine. I just hate having to wait like 3 minutes for my computer to start up. I don't understand. Everyone else seems to easily be getting 4.3 or 4.4 without even messing with the vcore. I followed guides and tried to adapt settings many times with no luck. Anyone else having this problem?

  7. Hey guys, I finally got my G5 mod Lion hackintosh (almost) fully operational thanks to everyone in the insanelymac and tonymac community! Thanks a bunch! My question now is, in system information, my chipset is detected as Radeon HD 6xxx. Does this mean I'll have video compatibility issues? I don't have my video editing software up on this disk yet so I'm just wondering if I'll have frame buffering issues or anything down the line.
  8. Hey guys, I successfully installed Lion via kakewalk usb. Everything boots up fine. I flashed bios f8, and i have the dsdt for my mobo f8. I run [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url], (both running [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] or skipping), system utilities, drivers, no customization, and I get kernel panic. Anyone know whats up? Gigabyte z68x ud4-b3 Sapphire radeon hd 6870 intel i7 2600k 4 gb ram 1 tb seagate
  9. Rewiring the g5 fans

    Now I'm trying to get the speaker/fan to work. Someone said they just plugged the two pin connector into the motherboard, but I don't have any two pin headers meant for speakers. I have a gigabyte z68 ud4-b3. Any suggestions?
  10. Rewiring the g5 fans

    Hm, so there are two alternatives. If I connect it to the PSU, do people typically just solder the wires directly onto each other? Or what's the most effective way to connect the wires? Secondly, if I connect it to the mobo, which wire (fan side) would I connect to the temp sensor and control speed (mobo side)?
  11. Rewiring the g5 fans

    I read a pretty extensive topic on rewiring for g5 fans. I'll admit though that I didn't fully understand it all. 1) When people rewire, do they solder the fan's original wires to a male molex connector to connect to the psu? 2) Are there different types of molex connectors? And if so, does it matter which kind you wire to? As long as it has yellow, black, black, red wires respectively. 3) I'm able to actually plug some of the fans onto my motherboard (sys_fan1 or 2). They both have 4 pins, is there a reason I can't just do this? 4) I still don't really understand how you set a fan to 5v instead of 12v, could anyone explain this to me? When I look at diagrams, it says you set the (hdd bay fan wires for example) two outside wires, 1 and 4, to the red wire. Does this mean you solder both of those wires to the red wire on the molex connector? Thanks in advance!
  12. G5 - is this an early model?

    I was looking at pictures of G5s that other people were modding, but by the quality of this picture, I can't really tell if this G5 is one of the earlier models. I bought a front i/o cable from alohacab, so I'm just wondering if this particular one will have that 18 pin connector. There's a picture of the chip behind the front panel, but it looks like multiple cables are coming out of it. What are those? http://www.ebay.com/itm/370539515099?ssPag...9#ht_1470wt_820 Gene
  13. G5 Mod Firewire trouble - am i missing something?

    Ah I see, thanks a bunch! I'll look into getting a mobo similar to that. -Gene
  14. G5 Mod Firewire trouble - am i missing something?

    Hm, maybe I don't fully understand yet because I don't have any of the components.. but I thought the firewire connector from the 18 pin thing is supposed to connect to specific firewire pins on the mobo? Or do they all just go into that 24 pin atx connector thing?
  15. Hi guys, I just purchased one of the front panel i/o cables from alohacab. I haven't bought all my pc components yet, but I plan to get a socket 1155 atx mobo. Problem is, I haven't seen firewire pins on any of the newer mobos. And from what I understand, all components of the 18 pin front panel need to be connected in order to complete the circuit. Solutions? A friend told me that putting a 2 pin jumper on the end of the firewire connector would solve it. Is that true? What would you guys do? -Gene
