AmdCPUMonitor and HWSensors 3.3.1

110 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I made new kext as an addition to HWSensors v3.3.

Compatibility with OS 10.6 - 10.10

Currently it show only CPU temperature. May be later I make voltage and frequencies. Voluntaries welcomed.

 

I am not sure with kozlek's project compatibility. Test with precations.

(kozlek's version is not newer. It is a branch with own enumeration)

 

Manual testing without installation:

sudo -s
chown -R root:wheel ~/Downloads/AmdCPUMonitor.kext
chmod -R 755 ~/Downloads/AmdCPUMonitor.kext
kextutil -v ~/Downloads/AmdCPUMonitor.kext

This kext v1.0 attachicon.gifAmdCPUMonitor.kext.zip

Other files in the project (don't install all of them! For example you don't need IntelCPUMonitor)

attachicon.gifFakeSMC_plugins_746.zip

 

New FakeSMC with Illumination version in System Profiler and no warnings in kernel.log

attachicon.gifFakeSMC.kext_Illumination.zip

Minimum set includes FakeSMC+HWInfo

 

 

Recommended installation (I have no installer so I propose you will use Terminal.app)

sudo -s
cp -r -v ~/Downloads/HWSensors/AmdCPUMonitor.kext /System/Library/Extensions/

and so on for all kexts that will have a sense for you

ACPIMonitor.kext     - for devices in DSDT. Only for advanced users!
AmdCPUMonitor.kext   - temperature for AMD CPU
Andigilog.kext       - for andigilog chip. Found on some Intel motherboard
AnalogDevices.kext   - for chips like ADT7470-7475
F718x.kext           - for Fintek chip
FakeSMC.kext         - obligatory for any Hackintosh
GeforceSensor.kext   - for new NVidia Geforce cards
HWInfo.kext          - if you use Clover bootloader
ICHSMBus.kext        - an addition for Andigilog.kext
IntelCPUMonitor.kext - temperature, voltage and frequencies for Intel CPU up to Haswell
ITEIT87x.kext        - for ITE chip, found on most Gigabyte motherboards
NuvotonNCT677x.kext  - for Nuvotone chip, found on new ASUS motherboards
NVClockX.kext        - for old NVidia cards
PC8739x.kext         - for NSC chip, found on Dell Inspiron only
RadeonMonitor.kext   - for Radeon videocard HD4000+

X3100.kext           - for Intel X3100 (GM965 chip) 

Monitor application to be used

attachicon.gifHWMonitor.app_731.zip

 

New version andigilog.kext supports EMC6D103 chip.

 

 

Advantages: 

- no spam in system.log

- CPU usage only 0.1%

- no panics

- supported wide range of chips.

So I tried to install it but installation fails due to some error. But I can still see new HWMonitorSMC app installed. But it show only Hard disk temp nothing else. More over Now I have started to freez during restart and my external hdd is now being recognized as Read Only.

How do I uninstall it now?

It's just a little report. Maybe I should use some other kexts, I'm not sure.

p.s. my hardware you can see at my signature...

The drivers that are not suitable for your hardware, you have to remove from Fakesmc.kext/ ... /plugin/ folders. Or add missing drivers in the pluging folder. you need to test.

Ok, I'll try in a free time.)

Alright I've tried - same result, I had even delete all drivers and left only fakesmc.kext and amdcpumonitor.kext in Contents/Plugins.

edit: I think it's not compatible with my type of CPU, the driver should be updated for compatibility. But it's ok, for now will be enough GPU sensor.

      This is bothering me for a long time now: Why does Apple deliberately disables the the RX4xx, RX5xx capabilities to hardware encode HEVC and is using Intel Quicksync instead? Is it to make the iMacPro look better than it is? I stumbled over a thread at tony-mac where people are going a totally different road for Radeon graphics. Instead of hassling around with getting Quicksync to work, they proposed to activate the AMD hardware renderer for Polaris GPU's. I tried it out and it works...somewhat
       
      I used a dummy kext from that tomato thread and edited it, so that it enables the AMDU7V4 IOGVACodec like on Vega cards, switched to iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS from iMac18,3, disabled the IGPU and the results were astonishing:
      My 3:34min 4k50p film was rendered by FCP with HEVC in 2:34 minutes. Nearly half the time than with Quicksync! With the iMac18 SMBIOS and the "help" of Intel Quicksync it took FCP 4:41 minutes to get it done!
       
      The problem is: As soon as the "wrong" IOGVACodec is enabled H.264 encoding leads to Mojave crashing at once (be it FCP, QuickTime or Videoproc). Watching H264 material is fine, though. 
       
      If anyone has any idea how to handle this, I would be very grateful. I would even accept Mojave using software encoding for H264 if I could keep this amazing speeds on HEVC!
       
      BTW: Without IGPU on iMacPro1,1 SMBIOS no problem with DRM or iTunes, no need for Whatevergreen or Shiki. That is a bonus

      Possiedo questo Acer è vorrei sapere se secondo voi è possibile installare Mac OS high sierra partizionando un hdd e mantere anche Windows. Premetto che ne capisco poco. 
      Processore A9 9420 Scheda video condivisa Radeon R5. Se volete altri dettagli chiedetemi perché non so cosa altro aggiungere.

      hi I have this build:
       
      - AMD Athlon X4 631
      - ASRock A75M-HVS (link)
      - AMD HD 6670
      - 8GB DDR3
      - 250GB HDD
       
      Which version of MacOS can I install?
      Which kernel?

      I know that it is almost impossible to install any os x on AMD APU netbooks, but i am hoping that  someone could help me here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thank you
