I too was in the market for an editing/compositing machine. I built mine last week with similar components but with an EVGA 560Ti and the Gigabyte GA Z68X UD3H B3 board. All working! 560Ti if you can fit in the budget, go for it. As an editor, yes FCP(x) is not specific to nVidia but if you...
First time OC, Got the system setup with a 43x multiplier (4.3 Ghz) with Intel Turbo Boost Disabled; RAM still running at 1333MHz (not at 1600). Ran Cinebench, Geekbench and Prime for 3 hours. I am running the system with the Corsair H60 Liquid Cooler on it.
Are these results okay and around...
I see mention of NullCPUPowerManagement which I installed during initial install. In Multibeast it states that it disables the AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement. Does that modify the AppleIntel... or just installs the NULLCPU... kext only.
To remove this kext from the system, do I just remove the...
Just popped in the SIIG 3 Port PCIe Firewire Card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6815150094. It recognizes the speed in profiler; is able to go to sleep but never wake up from it.
It has T.I. Chipset and few have got it to work.
I finally have my first CustoMac (after buying Apple Mac's for 12 years) up and running. Now to Overclocking. I wanted to get your thoughts before I mess around in BIOS and make sure I understand the stuff. I have an i7 2600k 3.4/3.8 Turbo running w/ H60 Cooler on Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3...
Tried this but got a KP.

Can someone assist on how I should install? Also how do I edit files in terminal. I am new guy sorry. I can go to cd/library/.... but how to i get access to...
Thank you both. With the LnxMac driver from the blog site, it seems to be working okay for now.
with this driver, does your sleep/wake work okay? Was it different (or better) with Realtek. If I choose sleep from Apple menu, it sits there and does nothing but mouse freezes. Another click...
Cool.. thanks jester969.. infact I used your build guide to get my system going so far. Thank You. GPU still needs config. EVGA 560Ti. gotta find a guide for that.
Last time I ran MB from the desktop, it ran and when "registering components" it failed with Installation Failed message...
Where would I find the LnxMac ktext on my system (sorry new at this).
Also, can I just run MB anything even if I booted from my HD or do I have to boot with USB, boot into my HD at bootloader and then run Multibeast?
Thanks .. much appreciated
Can someone assist with guide on installing EVGA 560Ti on 10.7.2 please?
I saw couple posts but can someone point me to a guide that will work on my HW with the above card . Card is recognized so far in Lion with GTX 560Ti listed with 1024RAM and only 1024x768 Max Resolution.
Installed Lion 10.7.2 w/ LnxMac 81xx Release version of the driver. All works on the Mac once it get a DHCP but it kills the internet in the rest of the house. No Wifi anywhere. I can't even access my router. If I disable the card on Mac, all comes back.
First time after USB Unibeast install, it asks that you boot with the USB but boot into your HD (Lion) partition and run Multibeast for the first time. All works.
For future, each time we run Multibeast, do you have to Boot from USB, choose your HD and then run Multibeast like the first...
