Ivy bridge power management preparation

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, basically I had to reinstall Sierra because I downloaded cpusensor gpusensor and acpisensor kexts, mounted the efi folder and put them in, when I restarted,  Sierra would just restart at the apple screen, I tried booting into Sierra with a usb stick, didn't work, so I had to do a full reinstall. Everything worked off the bat, didn't have to install any kexts, however, I'd like to

 

create an ssdt (where you extract your bios info, I believe thats what its called and whats needed for power/fan management)

 

Figure out a way to make the bios automatically adjust fan speeds and/or manually adjust speeds myself ( I assume I need kexts but not sure which ones or where to put them)

 

and ask you guys just to make sure if I'm not missing any kexts right now because when I started Sierra, everything worked in regards to audio, keyboards, mouse and screen

 

Thank you for your time

Those sensor kexts usually are PlugIns of FakeSMC so you download them alongside the associated FakeSMC; they should all bear the same version. Mix versions and you may indeed experience trouble. I can recommend Kozlek's FakeSMC + PlugIns, they're 200% reliable.

 

Regarding Ivy Bridge CPU power management, it's done through the following arrangements:

  1. select/activate Asus AICPUPM in Clover config (using Clover Configurator for instance). This is mandatory on laptops (with locked BIOS MSR register) but may not be required on desktops. If you get a kernel panic on AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement, activate the patch. If not, nothing to do.
  2. generate your CPU specific power management SSDT using Pike R Alpha's ssdt generator script
  3. remove any NullCPUPowerManagement kext you may have installed
  4. if applicable, repair kexts permissions and rebuild your cache

Regarding fan management, indeed your BIOS should be able to handle that automatically, though it's possible to tune this through DSDT or SSDT patching on some computers. I'd leave it as is to begin with

Thanks a lot for the help! yeah I was thinking of leaving the fan how it is but even on idle its spinning at like 1200 rpm

      Hi,
       
      after updating HS my WOL stopped working. It worked for sure in El Capitan, not sure in what version of HS stopped to work. I'm using Ozmosis as bootloader and IntelMausiEthernet (in S/L/E) for network. I created ssdt.aml with ssdtPRGen, and put it in EFI/Oz/Acpi/Load/.
      WOL is enabled in BIOS, wake for network access is checked
      pmset -g System-wide power settings: DestroyFVKeyOnStandby 0 Currently in use: standby 0 Sleep On Power Button 1 womp 1 hibernatefile /var/vm/sleepimage powernap 0 networkoversleep 1 disksleep 10 sleep 15 autopoweroffdelay 28800 hibernatemode 0 autopoweroff 0 ttyskeepawake 1 displaysleep 15 standbydelay 10800 If I put machine to sleep, WOL works for a short time, but not working if I let it sleep for a while.
       
      I deleted Ethernet in Network, rebooted and recreated it, but still the same.
       
      Hardware:
      MOBO:     Gigabyte Z97-D3H rev 1.1
      processor:    i5-4460 Haswell
      graphic:    Gigabyte GeForce GT 740 OC GDDR5 2GB (GV-N740D5OC-2GI)
      memory:    2 x 8GB Kingston
      disks:    Samsung SSD 850 EVO 120GB
              Seagate 2TB
              LG DVD±RW
      Sound:     VoodooHDA
      Network:    IntelMausiEthernet.kext
       
      Any advice?
       
      Best regards,
      Goran

      Hello all, I just completed my first full hackintosh build (Parts listed below) and have everything fully functional with the exception of CPU power management. Has anyone had success with this in high sierra skylake build? I have followed a couple different guides I have found without success, none of which are for high sierra.
       
      High Sierra Build
       
      CPU= i7 6700k
      Mobo= Gigabyte Z170XP-SLI
      RAM= G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB 3000MHz
      PSU= EVGA 750W Titanium
      Liquid Cooling= NZXT Kraken X52
      GPU= None yet, using onboard HD530 currently.
      SSD= Samsung 850 500GB
       
      What's working:
      Pretty much everything (iMessage, Audio, Display, etc..)
       
      What's not working:
      CPU power management is the only thing I have found to be non functioning.
