    Was temperature patch 4b for 4x740s changed? need help

    I want to apply my old very unobtrusive fan patch (this one) on the 4740s. It is just RehabMan's patch with different temperature steps. In Chameleon/Mavericks it compiled fine, in Clover/Yosemite I run into errors. Have there been changes in the DSDT since Chameleon/Mavericks, and how do I...

    Make CameraControl work and vanish

    I found it annoying to open/close CameraControl manually or having both CC and the actual camera using app running. So there is this workaround, tried on 10.9.1: Install Proxi, version 1.5.4 -- not the current 1.6.0 that will do nothing but crash. On other OS versions the 1.6.0 might work...

    How to install Paragon NTFS for Mac *10* in Mavericks

    Version 10 seems to work fine in Mav but cannot be installed using the regular installer (I couldn't, anyway). To install v10 to MacOS 10.9, open the Paragon Installer .app and dig down into Contents > Ressources, where you'll find the "Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X.pkg". Open it and it runs an...

    Fan speed and Temperatures

    A mystery: I tested the fan control with a script to give defined loads to the cpu. The fan rpm went down when the temperatures went up. My fan also seems to know only a few main speeds (and fluctutates a bit around them) that it uses for broad ranges of temperatures. Would't it be better...

    USB port puzzle

    This was seen in a 4740s, but maybe you have it elsewhere: System information shows the right back USB port being connectd as USB 3. The speed is reported correctly, but at the connected device (which is a USB 3 stick in the pictured case). For the other ports the bus and speed data are...
