    hummmmmm, i tried on 10.13 but no luck, Fury X gets recognized as Fury nano, but there is no acceleration. used newest lilu and whatevergreen + the boot args you mentioned. Did i miss anything?
  2. I had a run with geekbench 4.1 and it adds quite some points to the results compared to earlier versions. Makes it hard to compare. But the results seem to be more accurate now, had a few runs and they all spat out basically the same Result with only a few points difference. Geekbench V4.0.3 vs V4.1.0 same OS version, same overclocking settings https://browser.primatelabs.com/v4/cpu/compare/1124367?baseline=2849906
  3. The w3680 is still a very powerfull CPU. But I dont think that you will get a lot of speed improvements in most real life scenarios compared to the i7 975, only if you use programs that make use of all the cores a lot. other than that it is getting pretty old. SATA2, PCIe2.0 etc. Last time i checked the prices for CPUs boards etc seemed to be pretty high too. its a pretty power hungry CPU aswell with the 130W TDP, the i5-6500 hack i have has pretty much the same results in Multicore geekbench runs, while it adds 1700points to single core performance but If you can get a cheap w3680 it does not hurt really either w3680 vs i5-6500

    Nice work, thanks for the effort! https://www.dropbox.com/s/nyqtfg9vvtr11ob/Screen%20Shot%202017-01-22%20at%2019.09.39.png?dl=0
  5. I had the some Problems performance wise the last days. Turned out after a bios reset I set up everything correctly, but left the CPU Features on default: I had to set everything that was on "AUTO" to "Enabled" or the CPU was Stuck at Multi 12 No, not really, the difference between a i7 980X and a Xeon w3680 is that the Xeon is capable of using ECC Memory. other than that they are the same CPU. The X5xxx Xeons are made for Multi CPU Systems, that does not work with the "W" orkstation Series or i7
  6. I tried Upgrading Yosemite to El Capitan GM. Mounted Efi Partition, copied fakesmc and other kexts to clover/kext/10.11 folder. Double clicked El Cap install.App in Applications folder, it rebooted automatically. When rebooting it created a "install El Capitan" setting in Clover GUI, i selectedt it, it run the install and was able to boot into the freshly upgraded El Capitan GM without any bigger Problems.

    i miss you guys
  8. X58A-UD3R Rev. 2.0-fh. With Clover OSX Is showing the right amount and speeds of the memory, but its showing Dimm 1 to Dimm 6, while under chameleon OSX shows a perfect triple channel setup, 3 Banks, each Bank filled with Dimm 0 and Dimm 1 wich looks like this in System Profiler: Bank 0 Dimm 0 Bank 1 Dimm 0 Bank 2 Dimm 0 Bank 0 Dimm 1 Bank 1 Dimm 1 Bank 2 Dimm 1 Its just cosmetic it seems, benchmarked with clover and chameleon and the differences were minimal
  9. I use the orange icon fix in the DSDT and it still works. Even tho in the guide it says "not needed since 10.7" i do need it. Im using "fix firewire" in clover because there is no FRWR device in the DSDT. It gave a power consumption error (if i remember well) without that fix. Without SSDT I use Generate P- and C-states aswell. Under Cpu / QPI i entered 6.400 to get "Processor Interconnect Speed: 6.4 GT/s" showing right in SystemProfiler, just cosmetic Apple RTC patch seems to work on bios reset after sleep. No audio injection with clover, I inject ID1 in DSDT. Mounting Efi Partition and then running Toledas clover command script works just fine for audio SMBios Macpro 5,1, Clover does not seem to get OSX to show triple channel memory correctly. Benchmarked under clover and chameleon ( OSX shows perfect triple channel setup in chameleon) but there are no bigger performance differences
  10. I extracted my DSDT and SSDT with clover, extracting them pressing F4 while booting. The Tables are stored in Efi/Clover/ACPI/Orig if i remember well. Wasn't able to get OS X to recognize triple channel memory properly so i switched back to Chameleon for more testing. There is a way to extract the Tables with Aida64 as well, but only older Programversions will work, Aida developers removed the DSDT and SSDT extraction at some point in the program. So be sure you load an Aida version that is still able to extract those. It will extract a DSDT.bin with Aida, just change it to .aml and you are good to edit it in maciasl. After that I took Dood's Native Powermanagement guide, and did all the steps mentioned in there for my motherboard except audio. Editing DSDT using Maciasl, I used ATkPAAAR and "smc-thurley" for Mac Pro 5,1 Powermanagement in Fakesmc and so on and so forth. After finishing the DSDT I renamed some of the devices in it into a more Mac like way, tested everything like sleep, bios reset while rebooting etc. I had to redo some things because I did not edit them properly, but I did not need NullCPUPowermanagement at any point using the DSDT. Then I used the extracted SSDT and removed Errors and Warnings as far possible and added more states to it. Weird thing was the first (highest) state, its the highest possible frequency +1Mhz. So if my highest state should be 25x133=3325Mhz the second entry from the top is for 3325Mhz, and in the first one for 3326Mhz. if I did not do it like that it wouldn't switch thru the states. So I guess the +1Mhz state is for the Turbos. This is what it looked like in the original extracted SSDT: Package (0x06) { 0x00000CFE, 0x000493E0, 0x0000000A, 0x0000000A, 0x0000001A, 0x0000001A }, Package (0x06) { 0x00000CFD, 0x000493E0, 0x0000000A, 0x0000000A, 0x00000019, 0x00000019 }, In the uploaded SSDT I use the same method but with the according higher frequencies and it works. http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/search?dir=desc&q=xeon+w3680&sort=score I was able to jump onto page 1 of geekbench w3680 results just with my DSDT and SSDT edits without overclocking, scoring 2844 Points in 64Bit Benchmark. I get less Points in Windows Kernel Patching was not involved
  11. First of all: Thanks a lot Dood, great work, thank you for putting so much time into this thread to help people like me It took me a while but now it seems to work fine. Hardware: X58A-UD3R, rev.: 2.0, Bios FH; Xeon W3680; 12GB 1600 DDR3; GTX770 on native Drivers; USB 3.0 on native drivers and an ethernet card that runs native aswell. HDA DSDT edits and Toleda script. Chameleon, Yosemite 10.10.3 I started with a DSDT from another Site wich gave me about 2,000 Points in Geekbench 32bit no overclocking. 2,200 Points with Olarila Patches. Started to fiddle around with DSDT and Dood's guide and was able to get it to 2,400 Points. Then i noticed that i did not edit PX40 / LPCB correctly and that the ICH10 was not shown correctly. Used the guide to do it, 2,600 Points in Geekbench but sleep did not work anymore. It was sleep and 2400 points score or no sleep 2600 Points score.... After some edits i got it working, sleep with high geekbench results. Extracted my own SSDT, added some states and it seems to be working fine. Cpu goes into second Turbo-Multi aswell, it never did that before, HW Monitor now says i get 12, 25, 26, and 27 kernel[0]: AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement: Turbo Ratios 111122 In Geekbench i get this in 32Bit: I overclocked it to 4,13Gz, it Turbos to 4,39 and i get this: Overclocked 64Bit Geekbench: Im not very experienced in editing DSDT and SSDT, so if an experienced user from here could have a look over my files to check if there is room for improvement id be very happy! My files for Chameleon Clover, X58A-UD3R rev. 2.0 FH, Xeon W3680, not verified to be edited properly.

  12. Good guide, works great. Had to use MBR on the USB Yosemite install pendrive to get it to boot on a X58A-UD3R
  13. 64-bit Kernel and Extensions:yes so for me it works
  14. Apple Magic Mouse OSX86 - external bluetooth dongle

    today i bought a sitecom bt stick. name: sitecom USB micro adapter bluetooth 2.1 version on the package it claims that it is windows xp/ vista/ and osx compatible. I tried it in both machines, Powermac G5 running leopard and my hackintosh running 10.6.2 and it gets listed in system profiler in both machines. as i have no magic mouse at the moment, im not able to tell if its working with that stick, but on first sight all seems to work ok
