Instant reboot on my sandy i7.

 

Same here.  3.03 works fine once I reinstalled it.

So some get instant reboot ( install OK, but first use of the app = reboot) some not... a bit ??

I use Clover & his P/C States generation + Intel CPU Monitor (from Slice).

May be MacModel dependency? I am using iMac17,1. Fine.

can be. But it seems that ix-3xxx (me, MacModel iMac13,2) and ix-2xxx cpus (here) have this problem.

Got some with that 2 or 3 gen ix that new gadet to work / no reboot if used? And if yes what MacModel do you use? 

Intel claims that it intended from 2nd Generation up to 7th Generation Intel® Core™ processors. Intel's bug?

Or may be it requires Intel GPU presents?

Yep, i think its a bug (seems only 4. gen ix CPU work) or they forgot  to tell its for 4. gen + CPUs only (before version 2. gen+) ?

And yes, known probs (in their text) tells some IGPU related probs with the graph (iGPU needed?) - but not the reason for reboot.

But doesn't matter if older versions work for those use it - i dont use, i use only slice Intel CPU Monitor - always working :)

We've posted Power Gadget for Mac 3.5.1, which resolves the issue with 3.5.0 that caused crashes on 2nd and 3rd generation Core products.

no

during some testing I noticed graphical IPG values are influenced (in bad way) by ie KernelXCPM clover flag in my case

also power wattage are influence from cpu SVID parameter on bios (auto/enabled produce different results)

so you have Dram, hmmm... you xmp in the bios enabled?

enabled

in auto you should have also wattage wrong display

I don't know if 3.50 3.51 IPG release have fixed this

wattage visualization was a problem also in windows if auto was set in cpu svid

 

hmm i have my bios patched.

 

for cpu SVID, is yours set to enable, or auto?


msr 0xE2 patch should not be related to your problem
