  1. Hi all. I just got into the Hackintosh scene a couple of weeks ago, and got 2 Hackintosh builds up and running from doing a lot of reading on tonymacx86, Reddit/r/Hackintosh,OSXLatitude, InsanelyMac… I got a Desktop configured, which was relatively easy compared to getting OSX running on my ThinkPad E320. What’s working so far I got almost every little frigging thing working on the ThinkPad E320 (minus the Wifi, which is a very typical Laptop woe I’ve found. I’ve resorted to a nano USB wifi adapter while a Broadcom chip ships). CPU GPU Webcam Intel HDA Keyboard/Trackpad Ethernet USB Wi Fi Bluetooth Internal Display, HDMI out, VGA out So what’s wrong? The only problem is that the laptop overheats. I do not know what exactly is wrong, but I think the fans are simply not spinning fast enough. I used to run Linux and Windows on this very laptop before, and the fans would spin up significantly every time the processor load would increase. After I Hackintoshed it, the fans can barely be heard even when the CPU temp goes up to 80-90 degrees celsius! And even though my CPU is detected (with 25 P-States) the battery life is really really bad. I get roughly 2 hours on a full 100% charge on a 6 Cell Battery. I tried patching my DSDT and a little bit, but mostly it’s the same from another DSDT I found for my motherboard and model - its the Intel HM65 Chipset. The DSDT worked well, and I had to make a slight tweak for getting the Intel HDA. I used Piker-Alpha’s ssdtgen script to create the SSDTs for my machine and everything boots up and gets detected like I said. What I’ve tried so far / more information for diagnosis 1. Underclocking with SSDT/DSDT - Fail I’ve tried solving the overheating/battery life issues by forcing an under clock. I entered lower values into Piker’s script to do this (the script generates SSDTs without any errors when I put in lower Base Frequency and Turbo Frequency and TDP values) but the SSDTs cause the infamous error- P-Step Stepper Error 18 at step 35 Error. I think the newer SSDTS should work, but I think my DSDT is referencing the old SSDT with 25 P-States or something like that, and that’s causing the P-Step error on boot (this is just my hypothesis, I’m entirely unsure). I have included my working DSDT and SSDT in the post here so the community can have a look and help patch these files to underclock my processor to 1.8 Ghz with 2.2 Turbo (think that would be easier on the overheating/battery drain). 2. Underclocking with Clover - Fail again My second approach to under clock was to edit the CloverCPU configuration portion. I entered lower Frequency and Bus Speed and 0x00FA Latency values (according to Clover Wiki that Latency is best for Notebooks). But I saw no difference, and this experimentation failed as well. Some other weird things Looking at HWSensors app and Intel Power Gadget I can see the CPU stepping working (variation in the frequency curve) but I definitely don’t see 25 steppings (as the chart’s jumps are not that granular) which Piker’s script outputs for my current (working, stock clocked, linked in post) SSDTs. DPCI Manager shows around 6 P-States in fact. AppleIntelCPUPowerManangementInfo.kext by Rehabmanshows around 25 P-States, but then again the kext only outputs those messages during boot. Could it be that during boot 25 P-States are detected initially and as the kernel loads it’s lost for some conflict? HWSensors also does not have a Fan control portion either (are my fans not being detected at all?). So I can’t manually control my Fans either. Please help. I would ideally like my CPU under clocked and my fans working properly. This is the only step left for my beloved HackBook. Could the USB wifi adapter be screwing things up? The laptop goes into sleep, deep sleep and wakes up fine. I spent a lot of time getting it to this far, just need help with the power management/fan control portion, so please help if possible. I’m attaching some files so that maybe you guys could take a look and help diagnose the issue - [1] My Clover Config [2] DSDT/SSDT [3] IOReg [4] AppleIntelCPUPowerManagementInfo.kext output (I installed the kext and it only shows the output in the boot log :/ ) [5] KextStat dump Laptop Detailed Specs LENOVO ThinkPad Edge E320 Model - 1298CTO Mobo - Intel Express HM65 Chipset CPU - Core i5 2520M (Sandy) (2.5 Ghz to 3.2 Turbo) GPU - Intel HD 3000 (650 Mhz can go upto 1.3 Ghz [not sure]) RAM - 2x 4 GB Corsair SO-DIMM 1333MHz Storage - SanDisk 128GB SSD Any help at all will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  2. I get this constantly in console, anyone knows what is "apple80211" for ? or what does it mean? Running 10.9.2, FakeSMC v.6..8.1307 installed, AR9285+AR3011. also If I connect LAN cable (without wifi), fan rans crazy, HWmonitor(v.6.8.1307) report CPU temp >70C. But with wifi is fine. (LAN card: RTL8100.kext v.1.0 installed) Could anyone explain/help. thanks!
  3. Hi everyone, thanks for the helpin advance! For some reason, my fan doesn't seem to run, only while booting for few seconds, then nothing :s I've looked everywhere and couldnt find any clues as to why.. perhaps editing the dsdt would fix it somehow..? Thanks again
  4. Hi guys! I have managed to finish a golden build on a tricky laptop, and I’m very satisfied with the result as I’m running nearly vanilla and everything is working veeeeery good and fast. I am unable to tweak fan speeds via DSDT, I see there are some devices in it related to temperature control but I am not able to reverse-engineer them. I’m attaching here my DSDT, would someone be so kind to have a quick look and point me in the right direction? Is maybe fan speed controlled by a microcontroller? I’ve read something once, about talking to the microcontroller via DSDT. Thank you so much.

    Nvidia Fans Readings

    Hello there, don't know if this is the right place to ask this, but has anyone managed to get fan readings in GT 710 with GPUSensors?? I got the 2Gb version, and I had to trick with source code of HWSensors to be recognized (The model is actually GT 710B as listed by PCI id) At the time of writing I can get memory and core frequencies , gpu core voltage and temperature. It would be awesome to read and control fan, because it is stuck on 33% speed (afraid of playing games haha). Maybe it is something related with pci id recognition in GPIO. Thanks in advance.
  6. So I bought a corsair af120, I plugged it in, started windows 10, things were working fine, I realized I have to exchange this fan so I unplugged it, tried to boot sierra but on the apple logo screen and load bar ,it gets halfway until it powers off (not restarts) my pc. I booted in verbose mode and took photos. (sierra was loading fine before this) Also another problem I have is, sierra wont boot (just stays hung on the apple logo) unless I hit space in clover and chose (load with selected kexts) screenshot for that as well http://imgur.com/a/hBGsz http://imgur.com/a/hBGsz http://imgur.com/a/CIwBS System specs motherboard: asus p8z 77v lx cpu: i5 3570k ram: corsair vengeance 8gigs gpu: nvidia gtx 1060 (although im using intel onboard graphics for sierra)
  7. Hi, How do i check what is preventing sleep by terminal? It has to be a process, DSDT and kexts are fine, fresh install. Had this problem before, edited DSDT until i went insane, was the Boom application Simply forgot how to check it, any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  8. My system is overheating and I don't know why, I have already installed other distros and still having the same problem. Right now is installed iAtkos L2 and in the screenshots you can see the temperatures of my laptop on windows and Osx for comparasion. Anyone can help me. I have an acer 5738z if it can help.
  9. I have an HP G7000 laptop running Lion 10.7.5 . My fan is not working properly. It's in stand-by until the laptop gets really hot, then it start very loud for about 30-40 seconds or less. When I start the laptop, in Bios settings, it works smooth. At the Apple boot logo it stops. I had deleted the NullCPUPowerManagement kext.
  10. My laptop is Dell N5110-i3, I have installed 10.7.2. Video, audio, networking are all working. But whenever I boot it up, the fan is working at maximum level, getting so noisy and the temp gets so hot. What's wrong?
  11. Pues como el propio título dice, el funcionamiento de los ventiladores (FAN) no se corresponde con el consumo de la CPU. Es iniciar Google Chrome y ya suenan bastante, a diferencia de Windows. Ya cuando abro Logic es una locura (mientras que en Windows abro ProTools o FL Studio y no van tan apurados). Aquí os dejo el DSDT y el archivo ioreg. (No me manejo muy bien con los DSDT, así que pido disculpas) Archivo comprimido.zip
  12. Hi. I'm new to the forum so if there is anything wrong with my post, please let me know. So, I'm using Asus N56VZ with Yosemite. After patching my DSDT for wifi and brightness issue, my fan goes crazy, and run fast and noisy all the time. My DSDT.aml is attached. Please help. Thank you. DSDT.aml.zip
  13. Hello, since my notebook is very noisy and the fans are always on even if the CPU is idle i was wondering if there's a method to control fan speed; I've tried to install programs such as smc fan control but no fan is detected (I have the same problem also in Windows). So maybe is possible to slow down the fans via DSDT. Here is my DSDT. In the fan section there are just 3 methods for every fan: _STA _ON _OFF..no methods for speed or stuff like that.. If you have any ideas let me know Thanks DSDT.aml.zip
