Getting my system fully functional

Okay, I have some really basic questions that I need somebody who knows there way around a Hackintosh to answer.


I have a i5-2500k Sandy Bridge CPU.

I have a EVGA GTX 770 Kepler Chipset GPU.

I have a Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H.


I heard I would have problems with using a Series 7 motherboard with a Series 6 CPU in OS X?


I don't see a problem? My system is running absolutely fine.


I'm running on the MacPro3,1 SMBIOS.

Is this is the best choice for me?

How do I know if I have Power Management working on my CPU and GPU?

I think I already do since my CPU is running at 28C and my GPU at 35C.


I haven't installed NullCPUManagement either so I'm assuming that has something to do with it working?

Is it working? How can I check if its working for both?

GPU - no translucent menu bar. Clicking on the launcher produces a "tearing" effect, i.e. the animation is not smooth.

CPU - install HWMonitor and Fakesmc plugins and check your multiplier. Or download geekbench and run it to see if you get a normal score.


If you don't have NullCPU installed then only your speedsteping can be off. Run geekbench and compare your result. You should get around 8000 - 9000

Geekbench 3 dude. They changed the scores. Cannot compare to Geekbench 2. His score is average

Except my computer doesn't sleep. If I hit sleep then it goes to sleep fine and then I can wake it back up.


But with the power settings that I have set after 10 minutes it won't go to sleep by itself :(
