  1. So I've been running Mavericks 10.9.1 via vanilla install on this build for a couple weeks now: Gigabyte GA-Z87MX-D3H Gigabyte GTX 770 4GB i7-4770K And for a while I never even needed boot flags to boot properly. Now I tried to overclock the CPU, and for a while OS X recognized this as well since HWMonitor was able to see both the increased Vcore and multiplier fine. I dual boot with Windows, so I also have to stress test the overclock for stability. I found that 4.4Ghz was extremely unstable, so I raised the VRIN and VRING to 1.9V and 1.155V respectively (~0.1V bump each), turned off all C-states and EIST. Now the computer can pass 12+ hours of prime95 blend. But the problem is with OS X. Whenever I boot with this configuration, I get a kernel panic before anything can load: "Unable to find driver for this platform: "ACPI/"" or something of the like. Every time the source of the crash is com.driver.AppleACPIPlatform. I read that this might be a problem with DSDT, but right now I am running a DSDT-free installation so that can't be it. I tried booting with acpi=no/null/off/etc., -x, -f, etc. to no avail. What is even more interesting is that now OS X cannot even handle ANY overclock; it will only boot in optimized defaults. Whereas before OS X could handle sizable bumps in multiplier and Vcore (47x and 1.36V), even a 1x bump or 0.01V increase now causes a kernel panic with the same aforementioned error. I tried using the patched AppleACPIPlatform.kext by crunk, and that didn't help at all either. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?
  2. Hi, First the story: I'm currently using a 7770 with my hackintosh. My motherboard doesn't support OC at all so I cannot use factory OC GPUs with my PC (My 7770 is factory OCed but I downclock it in Windows using EasyBoost). If I try to use my card for prolonged periods without downclocking, it eventually hangs and I have to restart. Now the problem: The hanging problem is also happening in my hackintosh. I confirmed by using Unigine Heaven benchmarking utility and it left my screen unresponsive in the middle of the benchmark. Lastly the question: How do I underclock my GPU in Mac? I tried using ATIccelerator II but it isn't working. Thanks a lot,
  3. I'm planning my first Hackintosh build, in a slim Mini-ITX case, primarily for watching (1080p) and converting video. Low noise is a top priority, and a small cpu cooler is necessary to fit the case. I was looking at using a i5-4690T (it's only 45W), but I've read that the "T" versions are just underclocked versions of the un-lettered CPUs, and I should instead underclock the regular CPU (i5-4690 is 84W). Will this work for a OSx86 machine? I plan on using an ultra-low-profile cooler (ID-Cooling IS-25i) and no case fan, if I can get away with it, with the GA-H97N-WiFi motherboard (GA-Z97N if need for changing clock speed). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Speedstep/Overclock with Clover

    Hi guys. I've recently built my custom hackintosh after being a loyal Apple customer for many years. My hackintosh (check my signature) is nearly perfect (sleep, igpu, efi dual boot) but... I'm trying to achieve different p-states using Clover and a generated ssdt. Now I'm running a 3570k @4.3 ghz and I've only two p-states (16 - 43). I would like to have a proper speedstep with more states. I'm using MacPro3.1 sysdef and I cannot inject MacMini6,1/6,2 (my sistem is always recognized as the last used sysdef). Here is my config.plist. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>ACPI</key> <dict> <key>MaxMultiplier</key> <string>43</string> <key>MinMultiplier</key> <string>8</string> <key>GenerateIvyStates</key> <string>Yes</string> </dict> <key>SMBIOS</key> <dict> <key>ProductName</key> <string>MacPro3,1</string> </dict> <key>PCI</key> <dict> <key>USBInjection</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>USBFixOwnership</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>InjectClockID</key> <string>Yes</string> </dict> <key>SystemParameters</key> <dict> <key>boot-args</key> <string>npci=0x2000 slide=0 NoKexts</string> <key>prev-lang:kbd</key> <string>it:0</string> <key>InjectSystemID</key> <string>Yes</string> <key>LegacyBoot</key> <string>PBR</string> </dict> <key>Graphics</key> <dict> <key>PatchVBios</key> <string>Yes</string> </dict> </dict> </plist> Any ideas to get more states between 16x and 43x? P.S. Intel Turbo Mode is enabled, EIST too. Thank you in advance! P.P.S I'm not using any dsdt at the moment. Flashed bios from biosrepo.
  5. Hi! I converted my Alienware Aurora R4 in a Hackintosh and... work perfectly!!! Sound, Usb3.0, all!! I use [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] and [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] without dsdt, and chimera. I am new in this procedures. But... My problem is that AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement dosen't work for me. I try all! -Tried NullCPU... but I loss the overclocking velocity, and fall from 4,2ghz to 3,2ghz. -Tried Patched... and patched by me too, but AICPUPM give me everytime a Kernel Panic. -Tried install Clover, and use UEFI, but is the same problem. KP. -Tried make my dsdt with dsdt editor, and a sdst with the generator. But nothing. -Couldn't use Voodoo Pstates to make a dsdt, because I use ML and don't load. -Tried all in the config boot, and nothing... I read all the post abour the error, but nothing nothing. Snif Please help me... Manual overclocking don't work. I tried it, but... multiplier of A07 bios didn't work. I only think to... patch the bios. But I don't know if that is possible, or... a good idea. I'm desperate. Thanks for help!!!
  6. Hi, I've installed Mavericks with myhack+clover (UEFI) I need an smbios.plist for a stable overclock at 4.7ghz. Can anyone recommend a tested one?
  7. I'm currently on a $1,000 budget. I got a build recommendation for that price on reddit, here it is: CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H ATX LGA1150 Motherboard Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB Video Card (I already own one of these, so this would be my second, so I can run SLI) Case: Corsair 500R White ATX Mid Tower Case Power Supply: SeaSonic S12II 620W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply I am looking into purchasing this computer to both play and develop games. I plan on making games for Windows, Android, iOS, and Macintosh platforms. I already own a May 2009 Macbook, but I'm afraid it wouldn't get the job done for me when it comes to making games, as I'm more of a desktop person. Because of that, I decided I would look into splitting Mac OS X and Windows 7 across my computer. Anyways, my questions are, -Will this hardware work with building a Macintosh? (I already know I can get just one of my 660 TIs working, and that SLI will not work with mac.) -In opinion, do you think that Mac would be a good OS to do these things: Texturing Video Editing Music Making -If the CPU did work with Mac, would I be able to use it if it was overclocked? Thank you.
  8. Hey folks, I recently moved to another country and left my workstation where I lived before. For several reasons I'm about to make a new build, this time on a more tight budget. I was first setting up the usual ATX mid tower setup I usually do, but soon realized I won't ever do any SLI/Crossfire or huge HDD setups in the future while being here. This lead me to some pretty nice ITX builds on partpicker and I dig the idea of a small layout for my limited work space. Also I love the minimal looks of the Corsair 250D Mini case. This is not meant for any gaming, pure low profile workstation. I would want to triple boot though. Since it's gonna be budget I wanna base this build on a Pentium G3258 which to me it seems is widely used for OC budget builds for it's great performance/price ratio. Any suggestions on comparable processors I wouldn't mind though. As for the GPU I first thought about a GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB SC by EVGA because of it's very low TDP and good price/performance. But it still pushed the overall total too high so I thought maybe a cheap Radeon would fit better for OSX anyways. So I ended up flirting with a R7 250 by MSI. My biggest concern, and reason why I'm writing this, is about competitive alternatives to CPU & GPU and the cooling system for over clocking the Pentium. Also the wifi controller on the MSI Z97I AC motherboard is an Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 7260 card. Probably a no-go for OSX? I'm thinking about USB WIFI? I wouldn't mind for one USB less. To boil it down to a short list of components: Pentium G3258 3.2GHz Dual Core OC Silverstone AR06 40.2 CFM CPU Cooler or Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler MSI Z97I AC Mini ITX G.Skill Ripjaws X 1x8GB (so I could buy another one in some future) MSI Radeon R7 250X 1GB GPU Samsung 850 EVO 250GB 2.5" SSD Corsair 250D Mini ITX Tower Case Corsair CX 430W 80+ Semi-Modular ATX PSU I made this list on pcpicker if you want to see parts specs. So regarding my concerns: Do you know if any of this would give me headaches running OSX? (e.g. if I installed an all-in-one water cooler would it be recognized at all by OSX?) Can you think of better alternatives for CPU & GPU? Most mini ITX builds I've seen do use water cooling indeed. Although I've read of enough people who OC well with a heatsink. Do you think the Silverstone would do it? Would you install extra case fans if I went with it? (The case supposedly comes with two from what I read) Thank you for your attention everyone. Any comment is appreciated. Critics won't be flamed. I'm grateful to the community. Kudos Deridjian
  9. Firstly, we need to know our GPU clock. For example, my ASUS EAH6850 is running at 790MHz. Secondly, convert 79000 to hex, which is 0x13498. While in the vbios, it's actually 98 34 01. If I want to get a 850MHz clock, I gonna convert 85000 to hex, which is 0x14C08 and 08 4c 01 in vbios. Last, use Clover's PatchVBiosBytes to find 98 34 01 and replace it with 08 4c 01. And all done! Unfortunately, I'm not able to boot my current Windows 8 with Clover now. But I'm guessing simply reinstall graphic driver or Windows could bypass the problem. Because I'm able to boot Windows Install DVD through Clover. These are the results to prove it works :
  10. Hi guys I am currently facing some problems here I got a tower with: MSI Z170A SLI PLUS board G.Skill 32GB DDR4 Memory Intel i5 6500 Overclocked to 4.51GHz Gainward GTX 1060 6GB Here is the BIOS files I am using Windows are working extremely fine here, stable temperature, no thermal throttling Ubuntu also works after disabing c-state in grub using intel_idle.max_cstate=0 I cannot seems to get macOS 10.12 working with the overclocked chip, macOS works complete fine without overclock The symptoms are the same if I didn’t add the boot argument in Linux, no USB, No hard drive, no signal output from monitor, no nothing The question is: How do I disable C State complete while CLOVER executing the EFI file? seems it's a Darwin/Unix/Linux Kernel limitation. Thanks a lot Update: Solved, see post #10

    How do I overclock with Clover?

    Hi, I have a 3.5GHz 4770k haswell CPU in my hackintosh, and everything is working great with 10.10 Yosemite. I tried overclocking the CPU in bios to 4.5Ghz. Booted into windows and ran som tests, cpu speed and stability seems to be ok. After that I booted into OS X, but clover says my CPU speed is still 3.5 GHz. I tried with both "CStates" and "PStates" off and on, but no difference. In the boot menu under CPU, it reports the CPU speed as 3.5 even though it's set higher in BIOS. So, my question is, why does this happen, and what do I need to change to keep my BIOS set overclock when booting with clover?
