Testing IntelMCHMonitor plugin for FakeSMC_3


13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I want to present new plugin for FakeSMC 3.5: IntelMCHMonitor

It is able to monitor chipset temperature, like Northbridge, and DIMM temperatures, DIMM0, DIMM1, DIMM2, DIMM3.

The feature found in 7th gen chipsets and up (CoffeeLake and ...?).

It will be useful for notebooks where we have no SuperIO like ITE or Nuvoton and no other way to monitor these parameters.

 

The kext is not working on my Skylake so I need your testing.

The kext is intended for FakeSMC 3.5.3 and will not work with FakeSMC 6.x or with VirtualSMC.

This FakeSMC with plugins work in BigSur. Just be sure not installed plugins for unintended hardware.

May be this kext is not compatible with your chipset.

Can you show me PCI dump or a full DarwinDumper report? (without BIOS and HTML)

 I Don't know how to get the things you are asking for. as I can't boot into the os

I have now deleted the efi I used. but I can make it again if you wish

Also I have Z490 and it's not booting anymore when add the IntelMCHCMonitor.kext. B.t.w. your FakeSMC works well with OpenCore 0.6.6 and BigSur but I have Nuvotron NCT679BD and it doesn't show the correct values for my Fans (even steady) and also the Core multiplier is around 5600x. That all comes down to the W836x.kext. I'm on SMBIOS 20.2 b.t.w.

IntelMCHCMonitor.kext causes kernel panic to boot on my signed Z370
FakeSMC with big sur on restart reports that the system has not been turned off regularly

This is the case with the official version released today of FakeSMC; with the one here downloading, I don't get to desktop, it crashes at boot

Something wrong in the new compilation.

From me it remains with each restart, the warning that signals the pc to me has not been turned off correctly; used last FakeSMC above attached.
I didn't understand if the solution was found and I have to look for it in the Clover thread
