Haswell-E 5820k 5930k installation guide with full speedstep working

Also I get problems when trying to generate an SSDT on my own (I got an SSDT from someone who helped me):

 

http://pastebin.com/vY5em2Mb

 

I set the AI Tweaker to "auto" and all the core ratios to "auto", leading to a slightly worse score.

 

Config.plist: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2820201/config.plist

 

Again, my system is Asus x99 Deluxe, GeForce GTX 980, Intel i7-5930k.

 

Thanks in advance :)

This doesn't look right:

iMac 17,1 vectors are for Skylake.

 

Use 15,1 or 14,2 for your CPU.

 

Thanks! I see the same macs show up in the list. Does it matter which one of the 15,1 I pick? And thanks for providing the info about the patch in that thread.

Also can I just use 14,2 or 15,1 on my SMBIOS instead of MacPro 6,1 without suffering any consequences? Using MacPro 6,1 requires a patcher for the NVidia . Thanks!

you can choose any one of 14,2 or 15,1.

With the 17,1 plist, i´m seeing sending stepper errors at boot.

With 14,2 or 15,1 all fine, no errors.

But xcpm is an illusion here on X99, not really working. We only get better P-States with this patches (better than NullCpuPM kext), and can use a higher single core turbo.
This is a great success, very good... but

You can check the used msrs for native PM in Windows, and then check them with xcpm.

With windows, msrs 199/198 E6/E7 shows many states, active changing and frequency settings.
XCPM uses only 3 real states, same as NullCpuPM kext, but better P-States and lower power in idle.
Only x12, base (x30/x35...) and turbo is in use from CPU. We see this in jumping frequency with 500ms sampling rate in Intel Power Gadget, and with manually read out of the msrs in idle or when a benchmark is running.

I´m not sure, but i think this 3 states are CPU/Bios related, CPU self throttling and not active set from xcpm.
For my system, i can use any generated SSDT for my CPU, set turbo, set turbo false, standard..... makes no difference.
I´m getting always max CPU frequency, no active msr settings and no flat idle at x12.

The Kernel must have another check for CPU/Chipset (in the xcpm code????) we don´t see.

All modern 4 core CPUs can use xcpm native, a CPU with more than 4 cores not.
Disabling cores in Bios does not help, so there must be a read out of an specific msr in the CPUs?

I´m reading the disassembled code for hours now, but i´m no coder and it´s digging in the dark  :)

Interesting! I am a coder, but not very good with assembly, nor do I know where to look in OSX :P

 

Seems like you are on to something though. But in short, I will get full performance, but fewer states that I can transition between?

It does better than windows now :) I ran the AI Tweaker and disabled C6 state but kept C3 enabled as in the other thread by SammlerG.

 

Should I also enable C6 in BIOS? Also, I should watch the monitor closely if it sticks in 4 GHz. Afraid of overheat and cooking the CPU. Wonder if this is purely the patch or if it's both the patch and AI Tweaker Wizard together.

hi guys! thanks to all of you, pikeralpha at first as usual.

i want to ask you something about my doubt:

i follow this thread but i think that there are a lot of contrasting info. (someone uses fakecpuid, someon else says to generate p and c Staes from clover, someone else need okrasit patch for full cpu speed etc etc)

 

here what i did:

in bios, apply overclock at 4.5ghz for my 5960x at 1.25vcore stable.

eist disabled

 

than i applied imac14,2 vectorlist and then i prepared a ssdt with piker script (I'm using macpro6,1 sysdef)

 

the issue is that intelpowergadget says that my cpu draws 35watt or more in idle.this value was the same (27-28w)with default cpu frequencies (so not depends on overclock)

 

i attached here my clover efi folder, so you can have a look.

i tried even dropping cpupm tables, but nothing changes. tried with both fakelpc enabled or disabled (is it needed for haswell-e?).

 

can you please help me?

Even with the script generated SSDT.aml is it possible (and safe) to overclock the CPU beyond the data inside the .aml?

 

Also, this part is quite confusing:

"e. Run again the ssdtPRGen.sh using the board-id of iMac14,2 to get C7 state:"

 

The Asus X99 A2 says the 5820k doesn't have C7 state.

BIOS Settings:

EIST/C1E/C3/C6/C7 - Enable

 

The correct would be 22000~23000 in Geekbench 4, see: https://browser.primatelabs.com/v4/cpu/605038

Not use: FakeCPUID, NullCPU ...

 

Cinebench score: 910, correct would be 1100~1150, 4.2ghz OC :(

 

Intel Power Gadget dont work, only Sandybrigde CPUs :(

 

But the 5820K doesn't support C7.

here the results I get with two different configuration files, using a 46x max multiplier with BCLK set to 100:

 

config-1.plist: no FakeCPUID, using xcmp

attachicon.gifScreen Shot 2016-02-08 at 22.15.37.png

 

config-2.plist: FakeCPUID set to 0x0306e2. NULLCPU

attachicon.gifScreen Shot 2016-02-08 at 22.15.53.png

 

I had some stability issues @47x, so I got lower scores than expected (had to boot @46x) - config.plist files attached.

Please tell me if you also need to know my BIOS settings. I am using latest 10.11.4 Beta (15E39c).

 

For me it didn't made any difference, same benchmarks using both files.

Hi Stinga,

I think your guide is pretty clear. But my problem is before even the installation process begins  :) .

 

I know it’s annoying answering a noob question made by a noob user. But really, I’ve tried the installation process following exactly RampageDev guide and I don’t get past the black screen with the white logo.

 

I have an Asus X99-Deluxe with a 5930K running Mavericks. Do you have any advice for a guide which ideally would be the “Step 1” to your guide?

 

Thanks

F.

Try and persevere with RampageDev's guide and consider different interpretations on how to implement his instructions. Graphics can be a big obstacle in succeeding with an installation. Have you tried a verbose boot from clover? What are the read outs? Are you using an HDMI or DVI cable? (booting with analogue monitor is very difficult and inconsistent) Have you tried NVIDIA flags/injectors in clover?

Thanks Mystroe,

I’ve finally managed to install El Capitan. I’ve understood that you can’t ask for help, if you don’t have barely an idea of what you’re asking for :).

 

I’m still in the process of post-install right now, trying to “distill” the infos from the posts of SammlerG and maleorderbride. For the very nature of a forum, infos are very “liquid” and can change from one post to the other. You have to follow them and see if there are changes.

 

Have a nice day

Oh, thanks, I’ve tried. With no success  :lol: . Too much infos one month ago, my brain was about to explode! I’m just an average user.

 

And, by the way, I’ve tried also to understand your guide on your site, with Google Translate!   :)

Thanks Mystroe,

I’ve finally managed to install El Capitan. ...still in the process of post-install ...

Well done, glad you got there in the end.

 

If I remember correctly, for USB, Rehab man's guide did the trick for me.

 

For getting the CPU working better this helped me http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/309717-haswell-e-5820k-5930k-installation-guide-with-full-speedstep-working/page-8?do=findComment&comment=2262910

Hi (again) guys,

I wanted to share with you my config.plist, my geekbench score, along with some issues I have and hope someone would be so kind to help me in the process of fine tuning:

 

STEPS DONE TO INSTALL EL CAPITAN 10.10.6:

• To install I’ve followed the motionworks’ guide.

• Then I’ve used some parts of the stinga11’s guide (this thread), to make USB 3.0 work (installing in S/L/E the x99_Injector.kext provided by him and applying in Clover the binary patch from arix98) and to make audio work (using his binary patch in Clover and installing in S/L/E the AppleHDA.kext provided by him). Unfortunately, the other stuff mentioned didn’t work for me (for sure I did something wrong  :)).

• I’ve copy/pasted in Clover the kernel patches from Pike R. Alpha as kindly illustrated from SammlerG.

• I’ve followed the “explained” version of the mentioned post from SammlerG, written by maleorderbride, with some other detailed steps to perform. Here I don’t know If I got everything correct: although Pike R. Alpha’s guide to his FrequencyVectorEdit.sh command is based on a SMBIOS of a MacPro6,1, when I’ve launched the command there were no option for a board-ID of a MacPro6,1. So I ended up using the one for the iMac14,2.

 

 

BIOS SETTINGS (Default values except for the following):

AI Tweaker

• CPU Core Ratio  –>  Sync All Cores

• Core Ratio Limit  –>  Auto

Advanced

• EIST  –>  Disabled

• CPU C-States  –>  Enabled

• EHCI Hand-off  –>  Enabled

Boot

• Launch CSM  –>  Disabled

• OS Type  –>  Other OS

 

CLOVER SETTINGS:

See attached config.plist

 

CLOVER DRIVERS AND KEXTS:

drivers64UEFI

• DataHubDxe-64

• EmuVariableUefi-64

• FSInject-64

• HFSPlus

• OsxAptioFixDrv-64

• OsxFatBinaryDrv-64

kexts

• FakeSMC

 

MAC OS 10.11.6 KEXTS:

• AppleHDA (brought by Stinga11 as for the #1 post)

• FakeSMC with Plug-ins
• X99_Injector (brought by Stinga11 as for the #1 post)

 

 

AND FINALLY SOME QUESTIONS FOR YOU GUYS  :):

• Sometimes I still have some KP on “cold” boot. But, when I reboot, it always goes fine. This is the most “unstable” thing of all my system. Attached a screenshot. Do you guys experienced something like that?

• Sleep functions don’t work. If I put to sleep the system, It wakes up, but before reaching again my desktop, it does reboot.

• I do not have SSDT in my EFI/Clover/ACPI/Patched. I didn’t find any difference with or without it. Is this a problem for the overall stability of the system?

• Do you have some advice about BIOS or Clover settings, considering I’m about to reconnect my Windows 7 UEFI SSD and I’m not an OC guy?

• Is there a better way of using the FrequecyVectorEdit.sh command other than with the iMac14,2, considering my hardware and that I have a MacPro6,1 SMBIOS definition?

 

 

Besides these questions, any help or advice to refine my installation would be much appreciated. Thank you very much!

An old noob

      Updated to High Sierra and installed the latest webdrivers from nVidia. I'm using a MacPro6,1 SMBIOS so I need the agdpfix to avoid black screen issues.
       
      When booting with nv_disable=1 I get the "GeForceSensors: still waiting for accelerator..." message. Booting with the webdrivers seems to resolve that issue, but I'm booting into a black screen so that doesn't really help...
       
      Any ideas what could be causing this and how to fix it?

      So, I haven't been running Hackintosh for a while but decided I wanted to give it new shot. I had previously ran an El Capitan installation, but wasn't all too happy with the performance. Figured I'd go at it again and not give up until it's working well.
       
      Anyhow, I made some bastardization of the old El Capitan  USB; latest version of Clover, Sierra install and copied the old El Cap config files (kexts, config.plist, SSDT and so on). As I don't remember everything clearly I tried to change as little as possible.
       
      It seems to have installed fine and the performance is a bit better than on El Capitan. So that's where I'm at now.
       
      I know that's not very detailed information, but I'll be happy to provide more if I just know what would be of interest/relevant.
       
      Running some benchmarks the performance is not great. Geekbench gives a decent single core performance but the multi-core is just around 20k (clocked at 4Ghz). Cinebench R15 seems a little better with 1180 points on CPU, but a little tired GPU score of 118 (GTX 970).
       
      I'm using the NullCPUPowerManagement.kext so I'm assuming the CPU runs at full power.
       
      Where do I begin troubleshooting? Any suggestions?
       
      My system specs:
       
      Asus X99-A motherboard
      i7 5820K @4Ghz
      2x8Gb RAM
      Asus GTX 970

      How to check your CPU's SpeedStep more simple and more accurate? Use MSRDumper.kext? isata menus?
      Maybe you have other ways, but I like to do it myself. So I created this application—"CPU-S".
      It is very simple to use—Just open the application, click the button, then you get the information you want.
      I can't wait to share it with you.  And here are some screenshots:

      build and copy ssdt.aml to your desktop

       
      Some drivers need to make the app running.
      If your system does not have these drivers, the application will install them.​
