    Asus Sabertooth X79 - 4930k - 10.8.5

    Got a new 4930k for my development machine to replace a 3820. It's nice. Updated the BIOS a week or so ago in anticipation. Install was pretty straightforward and it runs fast in Windows. I've had it stable at 4.5ghz on aircooling (didn't try to go higher), hitting 23,000+ on Geekbench 3...

    Report: Intel to kill off socket CPUs with Broadwell

    http://semiaccurate.com/2012/11/26/intel-kills-off-the-desktop-pcs-go-with-it/ I don't think that would be the end of Hackintosh, per se, as long as the mobo/cpu combinations were hackable. But if true this isn't good news. I'm skeptical. Seems like a large market share to simply lose...

    Should tonymacx68 continue to recommend Gigabyte motherboards in their suggested builds?

    My first two Hacks were Gigabyte boards. One has so far stood the test of time: a X68MA-D2H-B3 home theater PC. The other, a GA-X58A-UD3R, has had many more stability issues over the years, ultimately biting the dust within 18 months. When replacing the X58 machine, I decided to try the...

    X79 i7 3820 - motherboard suggestions

    My old X58A-UD3R crapped out. I'm RMAing it, but have decided to go ahead and sell some old components to finance a board. I mostly use this computer for research, but also do some web development on the side. I've decided on LGA 2011 for a number of reasons: 1) I can get an i7 3820 for $230...

    Wrong screen resolution on boot -- works after turning HDMI-connected HDTV on/off

    Just installed Mountain Lion and had no issues. I'm running a GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 board with HD3000 graphics on a Toshiba 1080p TV through HDMI. Install went smoothly. First time it boots into Mountain Lion, the resolution is fine. After running Multibeast, however, when I boot up the resolution...

    How-to: Change your ATI Graphics Card fan speeds in OS X

    I finished my G5 Mod and at the same time installed a new video card, a Gigabyte HD 6850. With very little tinkering I had everything up and running -- two displays on the DVI ports, no video issues at all. However, I noticed my case was loud. I thought it just might be the G5 mod not...

    [SOLVED] Gigabyte 6850 -- any way to quiet it down?

    Performance wise, I'm really happy with the Gigabyte 6850 so far. The price was right ($150), and it worked out of the box with dual monitors. (Well, I followed the directions of some people on the forum before even booting with it, but it worked straight away :)). But... it's a little on the...

In this thread, I will log my work, ask questions, offer advice, and generally reflect on the process. I also want to give an accurate accounting of what a G5 mod can cost...

    Black screens on GA-X58A-UD3R with GB Batmobile Radeon 5770

    I'm running MacMan's CustomMac from 2011. See my signature. For the last few months, I *think* since the 10.7.2 upgrade, I've been getting random black screens. At first I thought it was caused by over clocking and heat. I was running at 4.2GHz stable for about a year, but I recently moved and...

    Microsoft mouse and keyboard customization

    I use a Microsoft Wireless Keyboard/Mouse Combo. They haven't yet updated the software to play nice, unfortunately. The keyboard works better than the mouse. Here's the big problem with the mouse: if you install the microsoft software, you gain use of the extra mouse buttons. Great! However...
