Yep you need that voodoo tsc. It's working great but I found it bizzare that CPU used on real Mac Pro need that.

Hey John Chan what and how much ram you using? Can you beat 1333MHz?

Hello Luki1979, could you please share the dsdt and the clover cofig, I have the same cpu (E5472) with EP45-DS3L, but I have problem on booting into MAC OSX, while if I change the cpu to E2160, no issue.


Ps. I add voodoo tsc which posted in this topic.

Boot flag "tscsync" is obligatory, must have it? If I have use other boot option npci=0x200 and VoodooTSCSync.kext with IOCPUNumber = 3.  I have cpu xeon E5410 (4 core & 4 threads). I edit VoodooTSCSync.kext/Contents/Info.plist, change the value of IOCPUNumber to x (x=CPU threads-1).

Xeon E5472 arrived ! Good news it runs 20° cooler than X5472. Bad news is that it's still needs voodoo tscsync to use 4 cores. I found it bizarre as it was pulled from MacPro 3,1. I guess FakeSMC coders never expected to somebody using CPU's from real Macs. Anyway I'm happy with it as E5472 is only 80W. Cpu fan is nearly silent now. 

Have you still got the E5472?  I just put together my 771 to 775 mod on Gigabyte GA P35-DS3L running sierra, but I'm experiencing some issues with sound where the sound stutters a lot. I wonder if it's because I'm not using the tscsync kext.  Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      Hi guys, I have a weird problem using an Xeon E5450(775 modded) with nvidia card(8600gt & Quadro 580 FX same problem).
      First I want to say that in windows I don't have any problem, so it's not something about compatibility.
      When I try to boot in macOS with this cpu and nvidia video card I get only a glitch displayed(see attachments), the computer isn't froze, I can access it with ssh or file sharing, only no image.
      If I boot with nv_disable=1 flag I get image(no acceleration of course) and everything's fine.
      I tried the cpu on 2 different boards and 2 different nvidia cards and the problem is the same.
      With amd video card I don't have this problem.
      What I tried and failed:
      Deleting injection from dsdt and injecting or not injecting with clover.
      Using nvidia web drivers.
      Changing CPU settings from bios, like virtualisation, speedstep etc.
      Different macos versions(10.11, 10.12, 10.13)
      The hack I want to use with this CPU is the Desktop from signature, I can provide dsdt or entire efi if it's needed but I don't think it matters since I have the same problem with 2 different boards and 2 different nvidia cards.

      Hi guys,

      I just recently bought a HP Workstation Z640 featuring:
      CPU: Dual XEON E5-2609 v3
      Chipset: Intel C612 Chipset
      GPU: NVidia GTX 980
      Audio: Realtek ALC221
      Ram: 16GB
      Lan: Intel I-218 Gbit LAN
      PCIe: HP Z Turbo Drive 256GB SSD
      HP Z640 specs: http://www8.hp.com/h...x/c04400040.pdf
      And I wanted to try if it was possible to install OSX on this little buddy.
      The fact is that I'm a total newbie with Hackintosh and I don't know where to look for (fore compatibility), what to look for and how to proceed.

      Could you please help me?

      Thanks in advance,
