    Old hackintosh, update path? Yosemite / i7 2600k / Z68MA-D2H-B3

    Hi folks, Haven't been on here for a long time. Still using my trusty hackintosh on daily basis though. I've kept it running as it is because "it just works". But sooner or later one has to stop postponing updating. I'm worried getting behind on updates will make my system too vulnerable to...

    The FireWire 800/400 card to own for 100% compatibility

    I would like to update my experiences with the Dawicontrol DC-FW800 PCIe and my MOTU UltraLite MK3 audio interface. I get frequent high pitched bleeps in the outputs. Doesn't happen when I connect the MOTU through USB. Not sure if the FW card is the culprit - my system also glitches audio...

    Hack Pro for 4K film editing and VFX

    Not sure about bang for the buck but performance-wise your config will happily crunch through HD AVCHD. One thing to note: Premiere CS6 (and maybe subsequent versions too, not sure) has a bug decoding some hacked GH2 AVCHD footage. For example the FlowMotion2 hack is affected by it. It's not a...

    The buyer's guide clearly states socket 2011 systems have limited OSX support.

    BIOS to EFI upgrade, will it break existing Win7 dual-boot ?

    I see. I might still give it a try. Seems Fx BIOS can be rolled back easily in case of trouble.

    BIOS to EFI upgrade, will it break existing Win7 dual-boot ?

    Thanks! I 'm considering upgrading cause I have some weird issues that seem USB(3) related. It seems that when I have my USB3 SD-card reader plugged in and wake from sleep, my system is partly unresponsive for a minute or 2. OSX appears and application windows come to front when clicked but...

    BIOS to EFI upgrade, will it break existing Win7 dual-boot ?

    Hi, I'd like to upgrade my mobo BIOS to EFI on my dual-boot ML & Win7 system. I couldn't find anywhere on the forums or google whether that will break the Win7 install. Anyone know? ML and Win7 are installed on separate SSDs. Tanx D.

    dyuhas' Dual-boot Bitfenix Phenom-M (mATX) Build - i7-4770K, GA-Z87MX-D3H, 16GB 2400Mhz Memory, GTX

    Awesome. I told myself I wouldn't do a mini system anymore 'cause my Lian-Li case makes it a pain with a full-size video card. But a build like this is perfectly practical and performant.

    Logitech Control Center Updated for 10.9 Mavericks

    hmmm... i updated LCC to 3.9.0 on 10.8 (same installer) and now the pointer calibration is gone. Unless I got blind and stupid. There's no way to calibrate the vertical axis of my trackball. That's pretty essential. Well I guess this seals the faith of my trusty old Trackman Optical Cordless...

    USB & FW external soundcards, intermittent crackles, going nuts

    Now get this... After testing my audio interface on multiple machines, after testing all kinds of software combos, after buying a new €1000+ audio interface, after getting a new FW PCI card, after completely reinstalling my system, after pulling out my PCI cards 1 by 1 and after the hundreds of...

    USB & FW external soundcards, intermittent crackles, going nuts

    Hi there, I have an audio issue that's driving me mad. I'm a professional audiovisual artist and having a flaky sound system is just no option. Breakdowns in the midst of a live show are no fun. It started with my old 'n trusty MOTU 828mk2 firewire interface. After not having used any...

    What's New in OS X 10.9 Mavericks

    How the f*ck is it possible that people are still using cinebench? It has been completely useless for YEARS. Does not use any acceleration on recent video cards. Stop using it.

    Apple Intel AMD/ATI Framebuffers

    I recently found out that the Command Line Tools can be downloaded independently from Xcode for previous OSX versions as well. It's a tiny download compared to Xcode. Search for it in Apple Developer.
