    frozen on white screen with F20 bios (was working with F11) gigabyte X79

    I has to get a RMA motherboard for my gigabyte X79 UD3. The new board came with bios F20. The machine had been functioning like a dream for the last 3 years. I am correct to assume that it is simply the bios that is causing this or is it another issue. I am unable to boot in safe mode. -x...

    gigabyte X79 UD3 replacement board

    My X79 mobo has a broken piece within the CPU power input. Micro Center was unable to get it out. I either need to get this repaired or get a new board for my hackintosh. I am hesitant to get a different board as this computer simply works with these components. Are there other boards that...

    4K TV and hackintosh

    So I have read people complaining about lack of 4K 60Hz but 4K 30Hz seems to be working correctly. I just ordered a vizio 70" 4K TV (http://www.amazon.com/VIZIO-M70-C3-70-Inch-Ultra-Smart/dp/B00T63YVAM) and am curious if my sandy bridge (nvidia GT640, i5 2500k, 16GB, GA-H61M-USB3-B3 hackitosh...

    I5 2500 (sandy bridge) with haswell mobo

    My gigabyte gigabyte H61 seems to have died (computer clicks on and then off). Tried the PSU, took out my GT640, and different RAM and same issue. It is either the CPU or mobo. I am leaning towards the mobo. Therefore, gigabyte is taking too long to issue a warranty exchange and therefore...

    "Press any Key" at boot not working

    My network stopped working so I went through MB again and now unable to boot (back screen). Figure I have to enter my standard flags again but when I press the wired keyboard at startup logo I am unable to enter any flags and it continues to boot (which it then stops). The computer was...

    Apps can't access internet (browser can though)

    Nothing has changed yet now my applications can't access the internet. That includes dropbox ("starting dropbox" is continuous message) as well as plugins for FCPX (such as mglitch...image attached). I have read that with normal macs this is a system.plist issue. Why would this just happen...

    [SOLVED]burning smell and then shut down

    I recently started to smell burning coming out of the case. Obviously that is a major call for concern. BUT I looked at the CPU temps and they were less than 50 degrees; all other temps looked fine as well. The only one that can't be monitored is the GPU. I stuck my head in the computer and...

    Rear USB3.0 stopped working (no reason)

    The rear USB3.0 ports stopped working for apparently no reason. I updated to 10.8.3 and everything was working fine and then one day it just stopped. Any idea what could have happened. I tried setting bios to optimized defaults. THe drive is getting power but not mounting. The front USB3.0...

    Vcore does not match CPU voltage (in HW monitor) and computer lag

    My computer for the most part runs great. My issue is that after using FCPX for awhile the computer starts to majorly hang. The thought the issue was: -I was allowing the computer to choose the multiplier based on usaged (ECSI enabled and using +.6 in voltage (vcore at normal)...that would...

    Thunderbolt PCIe for sandy bridge systems

    I have been looking around but a lot of the information is older as ivy bridge mobo's have native thunderbolt ports and support. Anyone heard anything or seen anything about integrating a thunderbolt PCIe into a sandy bridge system (I have X79, 6 core, so all I am really missing is thunderbolt...

    Start-up times out after mobo replacement

    The CPU temps were out of control so I replaced the motherboard. CPU temps are normal and stable but the system will not boot (it goes to the apple screen, startup wheel turns for 3 seconds and then the monitor (plasma TV) goes black (ie time's out). Everything was kept the same. Made sure...

    uneeded ktexts installed and duplicate kexts

    unneeded ktexts installed and duplicate kexts Just took a look at my S/L/E folder and noticed that I have a ton of kexts that should have nothing to do with my system and I believe could be causing all the problems (mainly with rear USB support). I have an gigabyte X79 UD3 with i7 3930k CPU...

    Need Opinion about the Optimal Boot and Storage Configuration Z68X-UP5-TH

    So I think I am going to go with the following board: GA-Z77X-UP5-TH (http://www.gigabyte.us/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4279&dl=1#sp) and wanted to get your opinion about the optimal boot and storage configuration. I guess my main question concerns the various SATA ports on mobo's. Can I...

    No optical audio after 10.8.2 update on GA-H61N-USB3

    Other users have fixed the no audio issue by simply rerunning MB 5.0.2 and installing the ALC889 ktext again; this solution did NOT work for me and I am still audioless. I have tried to make sense of the Realtek AppleHDA fourm but it is currently above my paygrade; it is in alpha anyway, and...

    1st hackintosh...sooo close, but so far

    All of my components are compatible. Others have had successful builds with mostly OOB success. Here is where I stand: 1. Installed Lion using unibeast. The only way to get unibeast installer to launch was by using: -"GraphicsEnabler=No" -VGA cable -USB stick in...

    what am I missing here? Please help

    I am attempting the unibeast method and am following to the letter. Basically the computer boots to the apple logo and then I get a spinning wheel followed (concurrently by) by the "no symbol". Shortly after the apple symbol appears the flash drive stops blinking. I have considered and dealt...
