Fail after changing i3-530 to xeon x3460

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I changed i3-530 to xeon x3460. First i change cpu section with cpu section of i7-860. During loading the signal on the monitor vanishes (black screen). Then i maked cpu section from linux SSDTs - same problem. I try boot with imac and macpro smbios. There are no errors in logs. Boot fine only with nv_disable=1 in low resolution. I think problem with GPU section in DSDT. How can i fix it without installing clover?

MB: ASUS P7P55D-LE (bios version - 2101)
GPU: GTS250 (plugged by VGA, only VGA)
10.11.6 + chameleon (Enoch-rev.2773)

Good idea is, extract DSDT with new processor and edit again.

Many operation regions in DSDT are variables

Other good idea is Clover for next installation


if u use Voodoohda, use applehdadisabler, i apply hdef too


for video, use GE=y ;)

But appeared problem - GPU is very hot. Temperature has risen to 85 degrees no-load in 10 minutes. Сhecked a finger and through hwmonitor. Working temperature in linux is 50 degrees. Maximum under loading - 75. How can i fix this?
