Slice, you're the man!

 

I can now read my Radeon RX580 NITRO+ 8GB OC GPU temperatures. I had a little trouble working out where to put the kext's (I put them all in /L/E and changed the permissions and ownership etc.

 

I used the ITEIT87x.kext as I have an old Gigabyte GA-Z77M-D3H-MVP MB and i7-3700 CPU.

 

Will this also work with the HWMonitor app?

 

Cheers, Jim

@Slice

When i see this in windows sensors dump

 

Hardware monitor AMD ADL GPU
Voltage 0 0.00 Volts [0x1] (GPU)
Power 0 14.99 W (GPU)
Temperature 0 38 degC (100 degF) [0x26] (GPU)
Fan 0 1097 RPM [0x449] (GPU)
Clock Speed 0 634.44 MHz [0x27A] (Graphics)

Clock Speed 1 1750.00 MHz [0x27A] (Memory)

 

and i know you know how to read temp i have to ask you for radeon at least fan speed. Please. :)

Look please in WIndows if Clock Speed ever changed or there are constants.

You should see CPU temperature. Skylake-X is supported.

Give me your report by DarwinDumper (no BIOS, no HTML).

 

For motherboard sensors and fans you should choose what chip installed on you motherboard

if NUVOTON -> W386x.kext

if ITE -> IT87x.kext

if Fintek -> F718x.kext

You may know by own eyes or by AIDA64 report.

And the last one is GeforceSensor.kext from my previous post.

 

was searching for this. maybe it would be good to put this in a readme.text in the SuperIO folder...

There is readme.txt in latest download of HWSensors3 in my signature.

I am not responsible for any other versions.

Don't know why, but whenever I try to use the fake smc that installs with the hwsensors I get a kp.

I use another fakesmc and it's fine, although I don't get information on my vega.

 

So firstly, how do I tell what fakesmc I am using and is anyone else having trouble with an i9 7900?

I'm not running any fakeCPUID or kext or kernel patches.

 

I just tried the newest hwsensors from yesterdays release.

I put them in kexts others (including the fakesmc).

It's a pity laptops has no such chips. SuperIOChip presents only in desktops.

Just tried High Sierra 10.13.2 with GT 1030 and HWSensors3 rev43

Installing NVClock produces kernel panic

Installing GeforceSensor doesn't but I don't get any mention of GPU sensor.

Am I missing something?

For the next screenshot, try: Apple + Shift + 4, move the mouse over the window and press Space. ;)

Thanks, I keep forgetting about that one.

 

This revision is too old. Take new one.

Hmm, didn't expect download button not getting last build on sourceforge.

Found r75, tried it, but not much difference (it added CPU Fan, but that's it)

Anyway I just wanted to see if my GT 1030 gets too hot, if I stop fan and maybe even remove radiator (trying to stick it into Mini ITX case to get 1440p HiDPI)

But based on Launchpad 1 FPS I can already tell that even stopping Fan was a bad idea, so I guess case is closed, at least at this point.

Why you didn't use GeforceSensors? The latest version (75) will support 1030.

If you can compile by yourself then change is here

https://sourceforge.net/p/hwsensors/hwsensors3/code3/HEAD/tree/trunk/plugins/GPUSensors/GeforceSensors/gp100.cpp

line 60

    case 0x137:
      device->cname = "GP107";
      break;

add case 0x138

 

I'll hold, I already know it won't run without fan :)

Currently I'm focused on getting hibernate working, about to send you a related question on another forum

@Slice (and all) sorry but only during this vacation I've found the time. Attached a version of the HWMonitorSMC.app that did not show battery info if no battery is detected. Before doing anything on the repo please test it.

 

P.S. also I modified a bit the memory management by just switching to use ARC's keywords to transfer memory ownership of CF objects.

Ok, I'm going to do that within an hour. Some minutes ago I've changed also how the status bar looks when the OS is in dark mode (i.e. the icon is white instead of black or viceversa).

      This is a brief guide on how to create a vanilla El Capitan (also same process for Sierra) OS X Installer USB with an updated prelinked kernel containing FakeSMC.

      It is tailored for those users who want to understand the “nuts and bolts” of how to create an installer and also to help brush up on their terminal skills (rather than have one made for them with the numerous automated “tools” available or even Apple’s createinstallmedia) :
       
       
      Specifically, it is also a “Proof of Concept” which shows that installation is possible without even having to rely on boot loader kext injection.

      Prerequisites
      Existing Yosemite installation (or Mavericks - see post#4 for steps 7,8) “Install OS X El Capitan.app" downloaded to the Applications folder Pacifist FakeSMC.kext - Slice or Kozlek branch Bootloader - Clover or Chameleon 8GB or larger USB drive (16GB recommended), formatted HFS+ (MBR or GUID) named “Installer”  
      Procedure
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Open OS X terminal and type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line.
          The image restore and file copying may take a while to complete, and at the end of the process, the Installer volume is renamed to “OS X Base System"....
       
      sudo -s hdiutil attach /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ El\ Capitan.app/Contents/SharedSupport/InstallESD.dmg asr restore -source /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg  -target /Volumes/Installer -erase -format HFS+ -noprompt -noverify rm /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation/Packages cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/Packages /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Installation cp -av /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.dmg /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD/BaseSystem.chunklist /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System diskutil unmount /Volumes/OS\ X\ Install\ ESD exit 3.  Right click on the “OS X Base System” Volume and click “Get Info”
       

      4.  Click on the lock icon and untick “Ignore ownership on this volume”
       

      5.  Extract/Copy the El Capitan Kernels folder into /System/Library/ of the USB with Pacifist.  NB It is found in the "Essentials.pkg" in /System/Installation/Packages
       

      6.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel —> OG.prelinkedkernel
       

      7.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of the installer USB using Finder.
       

      8.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel…..
       
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/OS\ X\ Base\ System exit Any errors should be noted but the output below is normal e.g.


      9. Install your Bootloader targeting the OS X Base System volume
       
       
       
       
      10.  Boot your system with the USB without injected kexts into the OS X Installer GUI....
       
       
       
       
       
      Post Install
      The original prelinked kernel in a fresh install of El Capitan will also lack FakeSMC ie it will only be linked to Apple signed kexts.  In order to boot into El Capitan the first time around without boot loader kext injection, the PLK needs to be rebuilt for the El Capitan volume like we did for the installer:
       
      1.  Boot into Yosemite with the kext-dev-mode=1 boot flag
      2.  Delete or Rename the original /System/Library/PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel for the El Capitan volume —> OG.prelinkedkernel
      3.  Copy FakeSMC.kext and other necessary kexts (e.g. VoodooPS2Controller.kext for laptops) into the /Library/Extensions folder of El Capitan using Finder
      4.  Back in terminal, type the following lines, followed by <Enter> after each line to rebuild the prelinkedkernel.  In this example, the El Capitan volume is named "El_Capitan" - change if you have named it something else...
      sudo -s chmod -R 755 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions chown -R 0:0 /Volumes/El_Capitan/Library/Extensions touch /Volumes/El_Capitan/System/Library/Extensions kextcache -u /Volumes/El_Capitan exit 5. Install your Bootloader targeting the El Capitan volume.  This step is only necessary if you are installing El Capitan on a new drive without existing boot loader (not required if installing on a disk with existing boot loader beside Yosemite).
      6. Reboot your system without injected kexts into El Capitan!

      Updates for Sierra and High Sierra   Custom Prelinkedkernel Generator Tool I have made a custom prelinkedkernel generator "PLK.tool" for Sierra + El Capitan.  Instructions:   1.  Download and extract the attached BaseSystem_PLK.tool.zip into your ~/Downloads folder.   2.  Copy any extra kexts necessary for booting your hack to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem/ExtraKexts (e.g. FakeSMC, VoodooPS2Controller), making sure SIP is disabled. 3.  Copy BaseSystem.dmg to ~/Downloads/BaseSystem  4.  Open terminal and run the following commands... cd ~/Downloads/BaseSystem chmod +x PLK.tool ./PLK.tool ---> supply your admin password ---> will place your new custom prelinkedkernel on the desktop.       macOS High Sierra bypass Firmware and MBR checks in post#13.

      I have installed Hackintosh on to my System, but the CPU cooler is obviously louder then on Windows.
      I am using right now VirtualSMC.kext, but since FakeSMC provides temperature measurement tools, and VirtualSMC not, I asked my self if that might be a hint for my loud cooler?
      My question, has somebody tried maybe both and even compared them? And is FakeSMC maybe less noisy?
      Is it enough to just mount EFI partition, and delete the VirtualSMC.kext and put instead FakeSMC.kexts ? Without any fancy kext installation tool or terminal commands, just replace files and restart in enough?
      My System:
      Mainboard: Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Ultra
      CPU: Intel i9 9900k
      CPU Cooler: BeQuiet! Dark Rock 4
      GPU: Vega 64
      Ram: 2x16GB Corsair 3200
      SSD: 1TB Adata M.2
       
      The Tutorial i have used - https://github.com/cmer/gigabyte-z390-aorus-master-hackintosh/blob/master/STEP_BY_STEP.md
       
      Really works like a charm besides, the more noisy cooler, which i bought because it is extra quietly.
      I asked first at tonymac's forum, but they deleted the post because I haven't used their tool, really disgustig.. I really hope to never use their tools, and I hope here the information freedom is more respected.

      Using this driver you have to exclude other battery drivers: ACPIBatteryManager, AppleSmartBattery and so on.
      This driver assumes to using HWSensors3 with FakeSMC 3.5 as being part of it.
