onmybikedrunk posted a topic in OSx86 10.11 (El Capitan)Over the past month I've come across multiple postings about this, but really wanted to begin to dig deep to try and understand what the next steps, if any, could be in solving this scenario: Getting El Capitan running semi-stable on X99 with a 5960X 8-core Processor. I think that there are plenty of us out there based on passed posts/responses by Stinga11 (respect), Rampage Dev (respect), and even heavy hitters getting involved such as Pike R. Alpha, Toleda (respect respect) etc... So I myself am NOT a coder, programmer or UNIX guru BY ANY MEANS, but can follow directions well and am open to helping in any way I can. I'm hoping this thread will attract those than can actually do some good for 5960X users. From what I understand it's the fact that the rollback AppleACPIPlatform.kext from 10.9.5 is causing the issue and cannot be prelinked with the current El Capitan kernel. Does this mean we have to wait for Apple to add support for X99/C612 chipsets? Anyone with insight on this issue from a technical perspective would be greatly appreciated by any/all 5960X owners.
So, I haven't been running Hackintosh for a while but decided I wanted to give it new shot. I had previously ran an El Capitan installation, but wasn't all too happy with the performance. Figured I'd go at it again and not give up until it's working well. Anyhow, I made some bastardization of the old El Capitan USB; latest version of Clover, Sierra install and copied the old El Cap config files (kexts, config.plist, SSDT and so on). As I don't remember everything clearly I tried to change as little as possible. It seems to have installed fine and the performance is a bit better than on El Capitan. So that's where I'm at now. I know that's not very detailed information, but I'll be happy to provide more if I just know what would be of interest/relevant. Running some benchmarks the performance is not great. Geekbench gives a decent single core performance but the multi-core is just around 20k (clocked at 4Ghz). Cinebench R15 seems a little better with 1180 points on CPU, but a little tired GPU score of 118 (GTX 970). I'm using the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext so I'm assuming the CPU runs at full power. Where do I begin troubleshooting? Any suggestions? My system specs: Asus X99-A motherboard i7 5820K @4Ghz 2x8Gb RAM Asus GTX 970
