    Final confirmation before i hammer the credit card

    oh and i forgot, if you're partial with sticking with OCZ (toshiba) , I would highly encourage you to drop the extra 20 and spring for a vector 150 240gb. It features Cherry picked Toshiba 19nm NAND, with extra validation and QC. these drives are rated at 92TB write endurance (50GB/day for 5...

    Final confirmation before i hammer the credit card

    might i recommend a lower tier processor, save yourself some $$$ for the broadwell upgrade (coming soon-ish) . the i5 is essentially the same thing minus hyperthreading. you'll potentially be able to save yourself 80 pounds or so. might I also recommend ditching the kingston ram for some...

    MSI H81M-P33 installation problem

    you did the PM patch correctly. I have 2 of these boards, the one i'm currently using is PM patched. the other one isn't. I've already pulled half the ram and will be trying up the other one tomorrow to see if it works without the PMpatch. Here are my bios specs, ver 1.1 , make your boot...

    working an experimental rig with a g3220 as well, tried the kernel without the xcpm , which resolved the hang at xcpm: registered I was getting earlier, I also PMpatched the bios, did both of them together, so not quite sure which is responsible for the fix. HOWEVER the installer then hits a...

    Can not make 10.9 on my usb disk

    make sure that you have not altered the name of the 10.9 app store file (should read "Install OS X Mavericks") and also make sure you've got enough space (unibeast creates a virtual image on your hd (about 6-ish GB, then transplants that onto the usb drive) getting a detailed log is easy, open...

    Booting without iboot disk on a ivy bridge running snow leopard

    Cool thank you for that clarification I figured its something along those lines of something being absent in Snow Leopard that doesn't allow it to natively run.

    Booting without iboot disk on a ivy bridge running snow leopard

    well i already have several SB machines all "m(h)acked" however its not good enough for me to be honest. I'd much rather use the newer IB setups. SB is great, but the power savings on loaded IB chips has a big power/heat savings over SB (performance aside) . and I'm using a IB with H61 board...
