I know that I haven't got the same CPU and MoBo as you, but on my PC with an Intel Core2Quad Q6600 and a nForce 680i LT Chipset Mainboard everything works fine.

I installed iAtkos v1.0 r3 (Leopard 10.5.1) and "About Mac" shows all the 4 cores but curiously only 2 of my 4GB of Ram (while the "Task Manager" shows all the 4096 MB of Ram.)


AFAIK I installed the Vanilla Kernel, but maybe you could - as ASNNetworks already mentioned - try another Kernel?!

Finally figured it out after instaling Ikatos and trying diffrent kernels and what not still no avail i did some random word combonations in google and found that leopard needs disable bit enabled.... well im an OverClocker and always disable everything in by cpu options for stability... well long story short.... quad core good to go thanks for all the help guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
