      Is the Shailua's ALXEthernet v1.0.2 driver patched in any way to prevent it from unloading?
      I have to set my boot flags to -f for it to come back on reboot on my H77-DS3H V1.1 board.

      Great! Installed the new fakeSMC and plugins. My 660ti is now monitored. CPU multiplier still doesn't report correct turbo states though (compared to MSRDumper, 2600k CPU and z68ma-d2h-b3 mobo).

      Another nice bonus is that my boot time shortened tremendously. I used to have some kind of time-out of like 30sec that had to pass before it would load the GUI, all gone now

      Thanks so much as always! My rig also has a faster boot time. What does "a patcher to support mixed Intel 6 and 7 Series configurations" mean exactly? Pardon the n00bish question.

      LOL, montyvideo, I have the same question! I assume it refers to Sandy bridge and ivy bridge, but wondering if it refers to motherboards with mixed chips or using sandy bridge CPUs on ivy bridge motherboards (or vice-versa)

      Even with only four possibilities my head is still spinning. This is all part of the addiction of hackintoshing, whatever new voodoo these geniuses cook up I still jump and say "oh I don't know what the heck that is but I want my computer to have it!"

      The long version:

      A patcher to allow the use of the graphics controller in Sandy Bridge CPUs on 7 Series (Panther Point AKA Z77, H77, etc.) motherboards and the graphics controller in Ivy Bridge CPUs on 6 Series (Cougar Point AKA Z68, P68, etc.) motherboards.

      I installed the new FakeSMC & Plug-ins, they work great!

      anyway, my Geekbench score is going down from 10922 to 10605 ? ? ? ?

      Wow !! I do the same on my GA-Z68X-UDH3-B3 Mobo and the boot time (who was a great problem since Mountain Lion) has decreased dramatically from 40s to 3s !!!! no time to see any spinning wheel

      Great job Guys !!!

      Excuse my noobness : what did you install to improve your boot time? Just the new fakeSMC and plugins ?

      I have a GT640 graphics card, wondering if doing same can improve anything ( my boot time is not too bad : from push button OSX login prompt : 20 seconds). But being able to reduce that further would always be nice.

      Do I run MultiBeast 5.2 on my current install or do I need a fresh install?
      I just swapped a 5850 for a GXT 660 Ti today. The 5850 was not working correctly and there was AMD/ATI ghost screen. The 660 Ti is smooth (no problems so far).

      Thanks

      @macman

      Does the new FakeSMC extension have all the new Ivy Bridge SMC keys?

      Also the SMBios is missing a valid serial number that's why it's not showing up in "About This Mac", and why people are unable to down load the IB update from the App Store. It's worthless without a S/N.

      MacMac PM me if you want a fix for this that you can add to MultiBeast. =)
