  1. I have an iMac 5K i7 4GHZ 8GB ram m295x 3TB Fusion drive. Installed El Capitan Public Beta and ran SunSpider Benchmark on it. My computer is MUCH faster than before when i was using Yosemite. The question is: Does this improvement shows on Hackintosh as well or only on the original supported Apple hardware? Does "Metal" speed improvement will be noticeable on any build? Here are the results of the Benchmark Before and After El Capitan upgrade using the same hardware. Any answer would be welcome! Thanx.
  2. Hey guys I just wanted to share with you all my speed test my new samsung 830. I made a youtube video which you can check out here: https://www.youtube.com/user/BRKHD1?feature=mhee. This hard drive was installed in my 2009 macbook pro which doesn't have the SATAIII connector but it still makes my computer amazingly fast compared to the old hard drive. The write speed comes in at 194mbps If your looking for a new hard drive I really recommend the 830 samsung series (the 840s just came out too). Anyways just thought I would share if you guys have any other questions please let me know!

    Fix/Lean my OS X

    I have MacBook Pro 13-inch, Early 2011, Processor 2.3 GHz Intel, 4 GB Memory. Running OS X 10.9.5. I would like to ask how to fix/lean up my macbook pro. I am extremely disappointed in recent year or two. I am Mac user since the old days of white plastic MacBooks with PPC processors and 10.2 OS X. I migrated out from Linux. I loved the Unix-based OS with open source components, very much alike to my previous Linuxes. I am not programmer, but I loved Apple “Linux” disto with the support of a strong, corporate player, making sure that everything worked, with no need to compile 3rd party drivers to support things, like waking up from closed lid, working Wifi, and, most importantly the flawlessly working hardware. It was better than linux and better than windows. Over the years, i migrated my data to few newer Macs, and the OS X evolved. I used to love it, as I said, for being swift, sane, unix-based, rock solid, never saw blue screen, yet with nimble and comfortable UI. What I have now is sluggish, super slow, irrational system, with limited access to underlying unix, but with self bloating like on old Windows XP. It seems to know better want I want it to do, and I hate it. It seems to be slower every day, with the infamous beachball as the most common feature, with often non-responsive computer, waiting for something (divine intervention?). How can I get back swift and nimble OS with OS X? Should I get me Ubuntu? How can I remove everything and do something like fresh/clean install? Does it even make sense? Would it be solution? Will it work fast? Responsively? Is there a way to have some “selective” or “manual” migration? I would like to keep my old photos, and my old mp3s, which I have imported to my iTunes, but no legacy {censored}, nothing to slow me down. 15 years of favorites, cookies, and what not from web browsers, I do expect it to slow me down. Not needed. Old Apps, which I did not started for years? No. Kernel Extensions. No. I want my super responsive and fast OS X. As in old days. What is the best way to get there ?! Anyone? I anticipate to use my mac primarily for web browsing, mail, VLC to play movies on my TV, iTunes, and Skype. No rocket science. I do have another computer for computing, say multi physics simulations. to sum up, 1/ how do I do clean install on my mac? I do not have physical media for 10.9 or recent 10.11. Will it even help for speed? 2/ How do I selectively import certain data only? Mails, iTunes, iPhoto? What can be removed from clean install to gain speed and responsivity?
  4. 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
