    The Perfect Customac-Pro: X99-A II, i7-6950X, 128GB G.Skill TridentZ, Aorus GTX 1080 TI Xtreme

    Yes, I used your recommended Haswell-E FakeCPUID 0x0306F0. I've been using that FakeCPUID from the beginning. For some reason it doesn't seem to be recognizing it correctly. Is there possibly an alternate FakeCPUID for the i7-5930k?

    The Perfect Customac-Pro: X99-A II, i7-6950X, 128GB G.Skill TridentZ, Aorus GTX 1080 TI Xtreme

    Ok, so I just finished another attempt from scratch to get Sierra running on my Asus X99-A with i7-5930k. I double-checked everything.... bios settings, config.plist, all clover patches... did everything exactly as described in the guide. I'm posting a picture of the last verbose text I can see...

    The Perfect Customac-Pro: X99-A II, i7-6950X, 128GB G.Skill TridentZ, Aorus GTX 1080 TI Xtreme

    Ok, thanks again so much for your speedy replies and help! Early on I realized I had a PCIe WiFi card installed that might cause problems, so I removed it before proceeding... also removed all extra hard drives. Nothing else is connected except my GTX 970, which I use with "nv_disable=1" boot...

    The Perfect Customac-Pro: X99-A II, i7-6950X, 128GB G.Skill TridentZ, Aorus GTX 1080 TI Xtreme

    On my first attempts, I did follow your guide step-by-step very precisely. I did use the correct bios settings, config.plist, and kext files. I also installed "OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi", and made sure there were no other "OsxAptioFix*Drv**.efi" in the directory. As I mentioned, after doing...

    Hello KGP, Thank you so much for posting this guide! It is very precise and in-depth. You have clearly put a lot of work into this, and your machine is simply amazing. For the past three days I've been trying to install Sierra on my system (Asus X99-A, i7-5930k Haswell-E, GTX 970). I have the...

    10.9.2 Radeon 7970 Issue

    You need to make sure that your integrated graphics is enabled on your motherboard, although you can still boot using the dedicated card. I have GraphicsEnabler=No, and IGPEnabler=Yes in my .plist. Using Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H. Anyone else notice performance issues on 10.9.2 with 7970?

    10.9.2 Radeon 7970 Issue

    On 10.9.1 my XFX Radeon 7970 worked wonderfully. Since upgrading to 10.9.2 performance has taken a bit hit in my benchmarks. For example, previous Luxmark score was 2069... and now it's only 1102. Cinebench OpenGL test is down too... from 89fps to only 67fps. Heaven benchmark was horrible...

    OS X 10.9.2 Update

    Article: OS X 10.9.2 Update Just updated to 10.9.2. I have an XFX Radeon 7970, and the card works but I'm getting about %50 the performance I did on 10.9.1. I'm getting half the score in Luxmark (openCL), and my openGL numbers are all down too, and not even working properly in Heaven benchmark...

    i7-4770K Overclocking problem.... memory allocation error

    Yes, it boots fine with the overclock removed, and it seems to work fine with an overclock up to 4.3Ghz. Above that it doesn't seem to want to boot. Another user reported a similar problem in another thread. I'm not sure why the change in speed would produce that error. No, I don't recall the...

    i7-4770K Overclocking problem.... memory allocation error

    Hello everyone, I have been doing a recent build for a friend and have been having issues with the overclock. I'm using a Z87X-UD5H board with i7-4770K. The chip overclocks fine and boots into Windows with no problem, but it will not boot into Mavericks after the Chimera bootloader is...

    Haswell z87x-ud3h 4770k memory allocation error addr: 0x320 ?

    I'm having the same memory allocation error when I tried to overlock my i7-4770K with a Z87X-UD5H motherboard. It boots into Windows fine, but before Mavericks loads that error comes up. I have a great cooler on my CPU, so I'd love to be able to overclock over 4.3Ghz. Does anyone have an over...

    RAID cards in Mavericks (for SSD system RAID)

    I've already done a software RAID 0 for media storage (5x SSDs), using disk utility which is awesome. But my understanding is that you can't just do a simple software RAID for the system drive. I tried it, and had all sorts of booting issues so I never really figured it out. Any suggestions?

    RAID cards in Mavericks (for SSD system RAID)

    Hello everyone, I am putting together a new build, and I'd like to set up a two-drive SSD RAID for Mavericks. I understand the easiest way to do this is to get a supported RAID card. I was specifically reading other posts about the Highpoint Rocket 640l. Can anyone confirm that this card or...

    GTX 780 Works

    I recently bought the Zotac AMP! Edition GTX 780 thinking it would work with OpenCL since I read somewhere it didn't have the dreaded "revision B" GPU. Tried it, and the card itself works but as feared anything OpenCL will either crash or not work at all. Luxmark crashes immediately. Even...

    Does the i7-4930K now work with Mavericks? Please Advise!

    Thanks for the advise! I decided to go with an over clocked i7-4770K instead. I suppose an X79 build may pose a few more roadblocks.
