  1. Thanks! actually, mine is now idling properly, i think it may have been spotlight indexing or something, happening after my upgrade. (using the DSDT i have for years with c and p states unchanged)

  3. on 10.13.2 anybody else noticed their system doesn't seem to speed step down much at all any more? on idle my cores would drop down below 2ghz, but now seem more or less permanently up at the max of 3.36ghz. although occasionally one core does drop down to 3.2 ghz the default speed. but they never drop down below the 3.2ghz. Hopefully not a side effect of the meltdown prevention changes in 10.13.2! I upgraded direct form 10.11, where i have had a stable setup for several years including the speedstep.

  5. Finally took the plunge to upgrade to high sierra, to get the meltdown protection. Was able to get it going thanks to afrobaser's, info and files. I decided to make a boot disk first to make sure i had got my clover settings and kexts compatible with 10.13 I found i needed to use the fakesmc and realtek nic kexts from afrobaser as the ones i was where using did not work. These are all i need as i get sound via dood DSDT patch. I then statred the imstall form the command line setting to not convert to APFS. This then worked and the upgrade booted fine. However my WD HDD would juts not mount at all under 10.13, under 10.11, and 10.7 it was still fine. i ended up replacing it with a seagate drive. not sure if the WD was on the way out, or some strange firmware type issues with 10.13. Anyway thanks agian to afrobaser for his posts and files on this thread. Really impressed how this rig keeps going. upgraded the graphics, memory and drives over the years but it keeps working well!
  6. Great thanks! Updated to 10.11.6 Jon
  7. 10.10.2 - Latest Nvidia Web Drivers KP

    Me too this update caused me to KP too. I booted to my maintenance partition , and re-instaled the old verstion to my main drive using pacifist. Its now switched back to the built in os x driver and all is ok. If i try a newer version i'll try the kernel options to disable web driver next time, but i wasn't aware of them. Jon
  8. Thanks a great deal for MAJ, for keeping the script going for so long! I actually specced my hack build when i ordered it in 2007 to work with the earlier Leopard version of this script. It's worked fantastically through all the OS since, also using d00ds great dsdt work, but now I have moved to clover and yosemite reasonably easily. My experiences are here : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/196771-ga-ex58-and-ga-x58a-dsdt-native-power-management-modifications/?p=2098918 Thanks again. Jon
  9. Firstly many thanks to d00d and MAJ for enabling these hacks to be configured and run for so long. But it does seem clover is the way forward. Here is my experience with first getting clover to work on my existing Mavericks install and then upgrading to Yosemite. I used afrobasers guide and config.plist (thanks!) with clover configurator and that got my mavericks booting ok. I used my long developed existing DSDT as in post 1, here things i noted and needed to change from afrobasers plist : Copy the extra kexts i was using form Majs script to the right clover folder. To getaudio, In devices, I Needed to set audio inject to NO, as i was using the option in post 1(item 14 option A) of this thread that used an unpatched AppleHDA. To enable appstore login, i needed to copy the smuuid, MLB, and ROM values from my chameleon setup (by booting in chameleon first, then pressing 'calculate' in the rt variables section of clover configurator.). Tick inject nvidia in graphics section of clover configurator for my gtx 285 card. Change language in gui section to en, else installer runs in French! Everything was then fine in Mavericks, so I made a bootable Yosemite installer and upgraded the mavericks installation, using the guide here : http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/298521-easy-yosemite-1010-final-usb-installer-updated-10162014/ The only change i had to make was, I noticed my Nvidia GTX 285 was stuck at high performance mode level 2. To fix this, I edited the AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext/Contents/Info.plist as described in post 1 (item 22) of this thread. I also continue to use nvclock to set the fan speed to auto as described in that post. Now the graphics card adjusts it's performance levels according to load correctly. So now I have a fully working hack, native CPU, and GPU power management, sleep, app store/imessage login everything. Thanks again to all those who contribute to the community to, make this possible! Cheers Jon
  10. In the end I did a clean install of 10.9.4 & sleep worked fine. migrated all my users and apps, and sleep still works.weird.
  11. my system now will not sleep since 10.9.3 and 10.9.4 I don't seem to have any particular process holding assertions. even if i sleep with no assertions in place when i try and sleep i get the following pmset logs everytime : 24/08/2014 17:47:20 BST Assertions PID 20(powerd) Created InternalPreventSleep "com.apple.powermanagement.darkwakelinger" 00:00:00 id:0xe00000405 [system: BGTask SRPrevSleep kCPU] Sleep/Wakes since boot at 24/08/2014 17:26:11 BST :0 Dark Wake Count in this sleep cycle:0 Time stamp Domain Message Duration Delay ========== ====== ======= ======== ===== UUID: 2E9975FA-84AF-41F3-8252-9F8EB77AFFFE 24/08/2014 17:47:22 BST Wake DarkWake to FullWake [CDNVA] due to HID Activity: Using AC Any ideas? my system and DSDT has been stable for years. it's driving me mad. Jon PS Still doens't sllep even in safe mode, with no use logged, in, but my Snow leopard maintainece drive sleeps fin elike it always did. Doing a repair of both system, and user file permissions.
  12. So the 8gb sticks work fine? Does it matter how many or what slots you use? I still have a paltry 6x1gb.Jon
  13. I have been running mine at 3.2 ghz wihout problems since i built it. CPU temps run between 45-49c at idle. you will need to replace the stock intel cooler.
  14. I found i had to re-patch to enable trim support on my SSD. Good news is CUDA now works again on my Nvidia GTX285
  15. This is now fixed. if you upgrade to 10.9.2 and install the latest cuda driver from nvidia 5.5.43. you will be back in business!
