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.

Can someone assist with guide on installing EVGA 560Ti on 10.7.2 please?

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...

Tomorrow is the big day that i go pick up all parts to build my first CustoMac. Have decided on 550 Ti or 560 or 560 Ti for sure to give Adobe Premiere a boost. 560's will likely give a performance boost over the 550 but which one would be better in terms of:
- less modifications or...
After reading much on this amazing site, I have compiled a list for my first box. Been a Mac user for many many years and finally getting around to replacing a MacPro and thought I go this way. My core need for this box is Video/Film Editing on Avid and Adobe Premiere CS5.5 and the...
