  1. Input with any experience regarding this would be really appreciated guys! I've already posted this topic on "Mac forum" but had no response whatsoever. So, I have bought Sapphire HD6850 for my Mac. I gotta make few music videos in FCPX and treat myself from time to tim with Arkham City and Borderland 2. I didn't plan on flashing bios with mac EFI but after seeing few "bugs" with GPU as is, maybe that is the way to go. That's where i need your input, is this related to being PC card or not? - Card being recognized as HD6xxx is EFI problem, and thats one thing i know for sure. Yosemite is loading: AMD6000Controller, AMDFramebuffer and AMDRadeonX3000 kexts. Next, few benchmarks are working OK, but i don't know if the results are as they should be? But GFXBench and CompuBench are not working at all. In CompuBench i can mark benchmarks i want to run, but it just goes through load process, as you can see in this video. Also, i had twice the experience of bad pixelation in OS X and red, yellow and green dots on black screens in all videos (Youtube, FCPX, VLC...). The clock, icons on dock, all was suffering from strange graphics artifacts. It goes back to normal after reboot, and doesn't occur if i prevent OS X from going to sleep. then its all good. But if i keep it on with few sleep/wake cycles it happens. As far as i can tell. So my question, again, is - Does this occurs because my GPU has PC BIOS and will it change with flashing, or is this problem with this particular model of the card? Thank you all, in advance, for participating! P.S. Here is the link to the original topic, if i forgot to mention anything.

    [worklog] Darkmac Pro

    The aim of this mod is to shake up the norm of aluminum-silver G5/Mac Pro mods by employing a darker theme for my Mac Pro. I want it to be clean and non-flashy, yet still have the gravitas to make people stop and take a second look. TO DO LIST This list is more for my personal benefit than anything, but will give you a good idea of what's to come! - Install custom front panel with USB 3.0 connectivity (waiting for part) - Install anodized DVD drive cage (waiting for part) - Install panel-mount 3.5mm female jacks on the back of the case (waiting for parts) - Possibly install panel-mount USB 3.0 ports with right-angle adapters (not sure if they will fit...) - Improve PSU airflow by drilling holes/removing side of enclosure - Install white LED light strip and inconspicuous power button for lighting (waiting for parts) - Possibly replace GPU and HDD LEDs with white one (kinda leery of messing around with my only GPU!) INTRO Well, despite having Project Gravitas on pause due to hardware issues, I couldn't turn down an eBay auction for a poorly-described Mac Pro chassis, that was listed without pictures and simply titled "Apple Case". On a whim, I decided to take a chance (they had listed one part number for a Mac Pro fan, so I figured it might be a Mac Pro) - $30 and no other bids later, I had a PERFECT Mac Pro show up on my doorstep. Ebay win: Despite being mostly empty, the case had only one small scratch on it, and the important parts like the front panel and shelf were included, so I had absolutely no reason to complain. Here's a quick and dirty shot right out of the shipping box: I knew that I wanted this mod to stand out. I'm always encouraged to see the sheer volume of G5/Mac Pro mods floating around various communities, and after being inspired by the Gunmetal G5 project from ToddFX on G5Modders (and contacting him to find out how much he paid for his anodizing), I decided to make some phone calls around town and see how much the cost of anodizing a Mac Pro would annoy my wife. She would undoubtedly (and not incorrectly) think that it was superfluous. Well, "superfluous" is not in the vocabulary of most modders, and I was delighted to hear back from "Anodizing Specialists" in Ohio that, yes, they would be interested in me coming down to talk things over. Delighted, I took a trip to the shop to talk with the VP of operations. Being an aluminum guy, I would like to think that he appreciated the hunk of his metal of choice almost as much as I do. Sitting in his office he pulled out some color samples, and I chose a dark gray. I had toyed around with black and even white, but this is to be my last computer case for a little while, and dark gray is my favorite color. After going over the case with magnets, he pointed out the parts that needed to be removed and told me to come on back when I had it disassembled. He very kindly gave me permission to photograph and document the process for informational purposes, which will be released in a forthcoming article on G5Modders.com, and of course will be included in this worklog. DISASSEMBLY Not having the same experience that I do with the G5, I decided to be overly-organized with my disassembly. Every part/area has its own bag, and in that goes any parts and related screws/fittings. It's annoying, but I'm sure I'll thank myself in the end! (Note: a lot of this full disassembly is applicable to the G5!) The awesome modular drive bays that I won't be using: This is perhaps the most intricate and difficult case that I have ever worked with, and that's including old server towers from the 90's! With this more than any other case, TOOLS ARE EVERYTHING. If you don't have the right tools, you're going to have a tough time doing things efficiently, and you'll probably end up cussing. (6mm socket) (T8 Kobalt Bit) Before picking up the tools above, I was close to giving up twice. "It's not worth it", I thought to myself on those occasions, "just do a regular mod". Once I buckled down and bought the tools, things were MUCH easier, if only slightly faster. Our patient: I'm going to hazard a guess that there are around 80 screws that you need to remove for full disassembly, although considering everything I had to take out, that could be an underestimate. The above screws are the biggest pain the neck. Being so close to the bottom of the case, regular screwdriver handles are simply too big to have space for your knuckles to turn, and of course Apple uses that blue loctite stuff on all of their screws, so pliers just don't cut it most of the time. Once I had removed all the screws (including the hidden ones…sigh) I carefully pulled apart the handles from the shell. Now I'm not sure if I did it correctly, but using some fabric in between the two parts, I pulled the handle assembly away from the shell, and slowly slid up out and over, taking care not to scratch anything! I don't have pictures of this step as it takes both hands, but I'm here to help if anyone needs guiding! Here's half the beast, looking like a car door in a gangster flick, riddled with bullet holes: Here's a close up of the pesky screws that I mentioned earlier. Four would be fine, but 8+ on each side is just a pain: After that, there were more screws to separate the two halves of the shell as well as some rivets that had to be drilled out, but that was relatively easy with much more space to work in! Still, look at these alternating rivets and security screws: Steve Jobs meant it when he said he didn't want people rooting around inside Apple products. Finally I removed anything that was not made of aluminum, including all I/O plastic and EMI shields, and several screws and a few other bits and bobs here and there. Pics to come of the thing totally apart! Hopefully I'm dropping this case off to be anodized in the next few days, so we won't have to wait too long for a pic update. I'll have some mod plans drawn up soon as well. Thanks for watching!
  3. Hi guys I am running a graphics workstation with the specs in my signature. With the MacPro3,1 system definition, AppleTyMCEDriver.kext loads fine and my ECC RAM works (which is the main point of having a Mac Pro). Now comes Sierra and it only accepts the MacPro5,1 or MacPro6,1 profiles, which I get a kernel panic with. So here I have a couple of specific questions: 1. What exactly is the cause of kernel panics when using the new profiles with ECC RAM? I read somewhere that AppleSMCPDRC.kext does not support (or just does not list) the Xeon E3 RamController (pci8086,108). Is that the problem? Could a hack be to simply add the controller string? 2. Apple's decision to waive support for older Mac Pros in future MacOSes brings us to the conclusion that someone has to find a way for running hacks with MacPro6,1 in a stable manner. I would like to investigate in this direction but need some initial help, because I don't understand the mechanism how exactly the chosen system definition kicks in and governs the loading of kexts or other stuff. So could someone post a clear workflow of what happens and in which order for each system profile, or better yet, which file this "roadmap" resides in? Thanks in advance

    Bumbling old newbie here

    I have a 2009 Mac Pro, 3.33 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon, 32 GB Ram with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 with 4 GB of built in RAM. I do a lot of photography and quite a bit of 3D modeling from the photos I take. The stock Nvidia GT 120 GPU is woefully underpowered for my projects and I purchased the Nvidia GTX 960 to give my older Mac Pro the oomph it needed. I started hanging around here to learn how to utilize the Nvidia GPU since it was a PC card and not a Mac version. I've figured out how to install CUDA and use the Nvidia graphics driver app in lieu of OS X default driver. My problem is that I'm having trouble wrapping my addled mind around how to use the Nvidia Web Driver app I downloaded from here so I wouldn't have to swap my GPUs every time I update the OS. I'm dying to try the public beta for Sierra, but I can't figure out how to get the app to work? It's not immediately apparent to me what steps I take after I open it, or if it is even meant to be used with an actual Mac instead of a Hackintosh? Please take pity on a befuddled guy and point me to where I can get help figuring this out?

    Audio computer hackintosh

    was thinking of doing a build of this setup, motherboard I'm thinking about one of the following, the MSI X99A LGA2011-3 RAIDER MSI X99A SLI PLUS, Socket-2011-3 CPU becomes 5820k ago I wonder who Noctua CPU cooling or water cooling is better to prefer, however, heard that the can was more load? RAM should be enough 24 or 32 GB 2133mgz 4x 8gb or how it will be framed in the quad? graphics I have thought a Ari or nvidia which has support for 3-6 monitors as being future-proof do not need fancy then only be used for music production, then I lit a bea suitably silenced chassi tex fractal design or corsair and Samsung 256 ssd m2 PCI-E or regular samsung 950 pro what is thought about this? Thanks in Advance

  7. Hi everyone, I'm pretty new to hackintosh stuff but I have a pretty okay knowledge with programming. Essentially I tried installing the official version of El Capitan on my Mac Pro 3,1 running Yosemite and since then my ATI Radeon HD5000 graphics card has not been working properly. I can't fullscreen Youtube videos without serious lag and I can't run 3d graphics such as Unity3d. I think there's an issue with my kexts. Here's the output when I run kextutil on AMDSupport.kext and AMD5000Controller.kext. Can anyone point me in the right direction? mac@macs-Mac-Pro:~ $ sudo kextutil /System/Library/Extensions/AMDSupport.kext (kernel) OSMetaClass: Kext com.apple.kext.AMDSupport class ATIController is a duplicate;kext com.apple.kext.ATISupport already has a class by that name.

  8. I had sleep and everything functioning fine before i switched system definitions a few times and ultimately went back to the classic Mac Pro 3,1. Now my sleep doesn't wanna work, any ideas? I'm on 10.10.2 Yosemite Clover uefi https://vid.me/KR7q What is happening: Hackintosh sleeps the display, and the systems fans keep spinning and functioning as if the system never went into sleep, and my APPLEHDA resets when i "wake up the system" (press a key on the keyboard) as if the computer actually went to sleep
  9. Hey folks, a few years ago i installed the iAtkos L2 on a super micro x7dal dual xeon e5420 ( non- hyper threaded) ; everything worked fine. I recently upgraded hardware to a super micro x8dti-ln4 with dual x5670's ( hyper threading capable cpu). Since i had a bunch of stuff installed and configured for the original hardware, I moved the HD as is to the "new" hardware and it booted just fine; however, the mac designation is still "mac pro early 2008" and only 12 cores (2 x 6 core cpus) showing up. The "new" cpus are hyperthread capable and the macosx should show 24 cores under the cpu usage window. My question is how do i update the SMBios (or which ever) to: 1) enable hyperthreading of the new xeon X5670's 2) show that this is a macpro 4,1 or 5,1 late 2010 thanks in advance
  10. Apple has sent letters to resellers across Europe informing them to place their final orders for Mac Pro machines by February 18th as Apple will no longer be selling the professional towers from March 1st onwards in Europe. The reason behind the unusual move by Apple is due to the aging Mac Pro failing to meet an un-specified criteria from Amendment 1 of Regulation IEC 60950-1; an international safety standard for electrical equipment. This could be taken as either good or bad news for the fate of the relatively neglected Mac Pro: naysayers could argue that this is the beginning of the end of the Mac Pro as Apple prepares to wind up production, and other territories may follow in ceasing sales of the high-end Mac. However, far more likely it's a simple case of Apple having something else up its sleeve later this year as already promised by Tim Cook in an e-mail, coupled with the fact that it doesn't really affect Apple given the Mac Pro is such a niche product in its line-up these days and we're only talking about the European market, not the whole world. Check out the letter from Apple to its European resellers:
  11. I'm looking at installing a PCIe RAID controller to give myself h/w RAID in my Mac Pro. I cannot use the existing sata bay wiring as the SFF-8087 connector wont reach the PCIe card. Not a problem as I can use a separate SFF-8087 to SATA breakout cable. The issue lies with the power. The OEM wiring has the power and data into a single connector, I have not been able to identify or find a cable that would work as a standalone. It looks like a standard ATX P4 power plug on the motherboard that breaks out into 4x sata power. Any suggestions? thanks!
  12. So the new Mac Pro is finally born and will be ready to deliver this fall. Some of it's features and some thoughts about how it would impact the hackintosh world: - Dual Ivy-E (or perhaps Sandy-E) Xeon CPUs: that means LGA power management either is here now with 10.8.4 (the MacPro 6,1 definition) or will be here soon with 10.9 (and those with a developer account and a LGA 2011 board will be able to test it now with 10.9 CPU); - Dual GPU Support, at first with FirePro AMD GPUs: at last, Crossfire and possibly SLI under OSX! It could be also either here now with 10.8.4 or be available with 10.9 dp1, with a definition of MacPro 6,1. Testers? Perhaps there's a dormant driver for SLI already available in one of these systems, waiting for different Mac Pro configuration possibilities; - No user upgradeability and/or internal expandability: this new workstation was designed to be powerful, but also small and silent. Thunderbold 2 will be available for extra hardware, such as GPUs (and that will suck, because the 20 GB/s Thunderbolt 2 bandwidth it's just the half of current PCI-e 3.0 16x used by GPUs, and a quarter of the upcoming PCI-e 4.0). Here's a picture of the Darth Vader computer: May the force be with it! P.S.: from Apple's: http://www.apple.com/mac-pro/
  13. Hello, Can anyone please explain if is possible to run IOS Mavericks on older Mac Pro's?. I have a 2,1 Mac Pro model. Thanks for the responses.

    Mac Pro Late 2013 - Desmontagem

    Olá pessoal! O Mac Pro é o computador de mesa da Apple, que em 2013 ganhou um design inusitado, em formato cilíndrico. O aparelho conta com duas GPUs da AMD e processador de 12 núcleos Intel Xeon, hardware que o tornou duas vezes mais rápido que seu antecessor. Navegando pela internet, podemos encontrar muitas coisas sobre ele, e dá até uma vontade de saber como é o Mac Pro por dentro, pois um hardware com tanta tecnologia por fora deve ter uma organização ainda mais tecnológica e inteligente por dentro. Então eu achei um site que realmente desmontou o MacPro e o deixou “nú” para que possamos apreciar toda a capacidade humana de inventar coisas realmente interessantes. Pra quem quiser ver e se supreender está aqui o site: https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/Mac+Pro+Late+2013+Teardown/20778 Créditos: ifixit
  15. The wait is finally over, Tim Cook made good on his promise of doing something special for the Mac Pro. Apple today gave a sneak preview at WWDC of its all-new Mac Pro that its engineers are still working on, unveiling a relatively diminutive black cylinder form factor that is dwarfed by its outgoing predecessor. Like the current Mac Pro, it's been designed around air flow, but with cool air being drawn in from underneath and hot air being expelled upwards, not too dissimilar from the ill-fated G4 Cube from 2000. Indeed, it's in fact smaller in size than the PowerMac G4 Cube, at just 6.6" diameter and 9.9" tall, compared to the Cube which clocked in at 7.65" square, and 10" tall due to its elevation for air intake and cables into the bottom. Based on the new-generation Intel Xeon E5 chipset, the new Mac Pro will pack 12 cores like the current model, but with PCI Express gen. 3 and 256-bit-wide floating-point instructions. A first for any Mac are dual GPUs as standard, with the ability to power up to three 4K resolution monitors(!). Apple are hard at work on an updated version of Final Cut for video editors to take full advantage of this cutting-edge hardware. The GPUs are AMD FirePros with 6GB of VRAM. Like with all current Apple hardware, the new Mac Pro does away with legacy technology such as optical drives and hard disk drives. Instead, storage is handled by next-generation PCIe flash storage. Unsurprisingly, most of the size and weight loss is down to the removal of the PCI slots, meaning expansion is handled solely through the 6 Thunderbolt 2 ports (up to 20Gb/s) on the rear of the new Mac Pro - illuminated by white LEDs no less. Connectivity is rounded off with USB 3, Bluetooth 4.0, 801.11ac Wi-Fi, dual Gigabit ethernet and HDMI, plus audio I/O. No word on an exact release date, which is no surprise given the uncharacteristic nature of this "preview", but one could hazard a guess that it may ship with the newly announced Mac OS X 10.9 "Mavericks". Will we finally see a black Apple mouse & keyboard to match the svelte gloss black gorgeousness of this new Mac Pro? Maybe even some high-end Retina Cinema Displays to boot? Place your bets now... Head on over to Apple's new Mac Pro preview page on their website for more juicy pics and details.

    First G5 MOD

    Hello insanelymac, I want to mod my Apple PowerMac G5 case, I know it’s not special anymore but I like it. I bought it on eBay it’s completely and in good condition. It’s possible to use all the fans and mod it without cut the backside ? The G5 most look like a normal G5 but only with new hardware. Hardware which I want to buy: -Gigabyte GA-B75M-D2V Intel B75 So.1155 or Asus B85M-E Intel B85 so. 1150 -Intel Xeon E3-1240v2 4x 3.40GHz So.1155 or Intel Core i7 4770 4x 3.40GHz So.1150 -2048MB Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 OC Activ or 2048MB Palit GeForce GTX 760 JetStream For the backside I would cut the old mainboard and mod it. For the front I would buy a cable from BlackCH. I get a soldering station, so I only need tutorials and hints from you. Can I build the front panel I/0 itself ?
  18. I am interested to find out which USB contollers and chipsets are supported by Apple's native USB 3.0 driver in Mac OS X 10.8.4 and beyond. To be clear, I would like to find which contollers can just be dropped into a Mac Pro or a Hackintosh and they just work... (BTW - Please don't suggest Caldigit or HighPoint or hacking a NEC card to use drivers from either of them. Both offer half a55ed support for OS X at best)
  19. Hello! 1. The new Mac Pro is official out for 3000-4000 USD! Intel Xeon E5 with 4-6 core... 2. OS X 10.9 is out and is free. I cannot find any comparable hackintosh build! Is there one? Can I have a link, please?
  20. Hi All ! (Excuse my poor english, i'm French !) I'm asking your opinion. My plan: Get the most powerful Osx86 configuration available on the market today, with an unlimited budget, to vidéo editing (2000$ - 8000$). The reason: Latest Mac Pro are beginning to be less efficient and are still not equipped with Thunderbolt. In addition, Apple announced the probable end of this model in europe. use: - Video editing (Final Cut 7 & 10) - Sound editing (ProTools etc.) - Music- Not to play game.Prerequisites: - Thunderbolt- Firewire 800 or 400. - At least 16 GB of RAM.- A maximum of Silence (100% passive?) - A config equivalent or more powerful than a Mac Pro (config max - http://store.apple.c.../family/mac_pro) - 100% functional with latest version of Mac OS and latest update. I've not found a motherboard with 2011 socket AND Thunderbolt, I will probably have to fall back on a motherboard in 1155. Ditto for the Firewire 800, which does not fit all motherboards. I am convinced that this place is where I could get the best advice / quote for this kind of machine. For the moment, I move into i7-3930K + MB with X79 + 32GO @2133Mz + 4 SSD Disks. but you probably even better idea! When choosing the config will be done, I will send you news about the construction of this great hackintosh. Thank you all in advance ! P.S.: if a nice moderator wants to correct my grammar, he does not hesitate!
  21. Dal 1 marzo Apple non venderà più il Mac Pro nellUnione Europea perché l'attuale modello non è conforme all'emendamento 1 di regolazione IEC 60950-1 che sarà effettivo proprio dal 1 marzo. Da diversi mesi molti clienti sono in attesa dell'aggiornamento del Mac Pro sopratutto dopo le voci di Tim Cook che durante l'ultimo keynote che tale modello sarà aggiornato nel 2013. La casa di Cupertino smetterà di accettare ordini dalla data del 18 febbraio del attuale modello e solo dopo il 1 marzo potrà vendere solo le rimanenze a magazzino. I paesi fuori dall'Europa potranno continuare a vendere senza problemi tale modello perché questo emendamento non riguarda hai paesi esterni. Di fronte a questa scelta, obbligherà Apple ad apportare modifiche al Mac Pro anche per evitare perdere nel mercato professionale. Infatti se valutiamo tale modello Mac Pro manca di novità che sui notebook e desktop sono state fatte da diverso tempo. Emendamento 1 di regolazione IEC 60950-1 Fabio
  22. Hi! I'm planning on building a Hackintosh, and it is my first time building a computer from scratch. I have taken apart a computer and put it back together successfully quite a few times. Although I have no experience with Hackintoshes, I have been doing by reading. Anyways, I plan on building my Hackintosh into a PowerMac G5 chassis. I have little (very, very little) experience with rotaries and soldering, and no experience with hardware modding. These are the parts I plan on using: Intel DZ77GA-70K Motherboard EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC 3GB (Yes) Intel Core i7-3770K Processor (Yes) Intel 330 Series SSD - 240GB LG BH12LS35 Lightscribe Blu-Ray Writer Corsair 500W Modular PSU Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 RAM (Yes) Aluminum Apple Cinema Display 20" (Yes) Apple Bluetooth Module Apple WiFi-N Module (Yes) Feel free to make any suggestions as to the parts I'm using. What I'm mainly concerned about is the front and back I/O panel. Can somebody write a step-by-step guide as to how to make the case fully ATX-ready? Is there someone who could also make a cover for the bottom where it has to be cut, and make the cover look Apple-like? Thank you very much.

    Power Mac G5

    I already search the whole google but i dont found a good newbie tutorial how to completely disassemble a PowerMac G5 or Mac Pro case. If someone of you know a good tutorial so please post it here. I got a Apple Power Mac G5 which works but the case is only bent. So I search a way to fix it again.
  24. Successfully installed iATKOS L2 OS X Lion 10.7.2 on my computer. So far, it has been working fine. When I open Apple menu > About This Mac > Additional Info, my computer appears as Mac Pro. Yes, there's nothing wrong with it. But I would like to see iMac instead of Mac Pro, as my computer is an all-in-one machine. As of what I know, I am supposed to edit SMBIOS plist to do that. Is it correct? If so, what iMac model is appropriate to my machine? Or should I just leave it as-is(Mac Pro)? Here are the full specs: Processor: Intel P6200 @ 2.13GHz Chipset: Intel HM57 Graphics: Intel HD Graphics (Arrandale) Sound: Realtek HD Audio (ALC272) LAN: Realtek RTL8168/8111 WLAN: Atheros AR9285
  25. I've just begun exploring the possibilities with Hackintosh and my immediate impression is: while people SAY it's easy enough to build a good Hackintosh Tower that is comparable in performance to a Mac Pro (and slightly less expensive), I am seriously doubting it. I need your advice and I'm sure 100 other people this summer will come in here looking for same. Hopefully they find this thread and comment. Observations / Questions 1. In all the Parts wikis and Tony's site and the rest, I don't see Xeon motherboards anywhere. I also do not see among the popular configurations, dual socket motherboards from Intel. I realize Intel is not a "Requirement" but as much as possible I would like to use the same types of "core parts" found in a Mac Pro. Then when it comes to things like USB 3, SATA III SSD, etc I'll use whatever people have the best luck with. How difficult is it to find Xeon E5 CPU and motherboard parts that will work with this process? If I'm going to go to the trouble to build and maintain one of these things, I'm not going to shoot for a less powerful machine than what Apple sells. I'm going to shoot for equally or more powerful, as would many others I think. I am not averse to i7 parts but they have to be high end (around 3GHz) and either a single 6 core machine or a dual 4 or 6 core machine. 2. How common is it that once you choose your "baseline system" (let's say 10.7.3), that you can get it to work and just "stay put" for a long period of time? Some of the New User info suggests this is only a "hobby", sort of inferring you shouldn't expect things to work well much of the time. Is that the case or are there more serious Hackintosh setups where you can, with a couple days effort, set up a powerful, stable machine that you can use for production purposes? I don't always need the latest OS updates but I want to know that once I pick my baseline I can set it up and leave it untouched for several months, so I can get work done. 3. Given my hardware goals, am I better offer getting a pre-built tower from HP or Dell and installing the Hackintosh firmware and whatnot? I do not need Windows and in fact hope to avoid it. So maybe that means some of the things that cause problems for others will simplify my would-be setup and make it more stable? 4. Are there any sites out there who specialize in building "Mac Pro like" Hackintoshes, in terms of the advice they give and parts wikis? I haven't found one yet. Most sites (like this one) seem to take a more generalist approach, which I can understand.
