    Should I leave an old GTX 680 in my hack with a Vega 56?

    Hey guys! Just a random question. I built a new machine last week, and it's smokin'. A 7920X with the ASUS X299-A motherboard. I'm getting 2830 on cinebench, a huge jump from my 700-800 score on my previous hack, the 3930K from 2012 with a gigabyte x79-up4 motherboard. I had a GTX 980 in the...

    P9X79 Deluxe | Sandy Bridge E Processor (i7-3930k) Power Management on Sierra

    You may have noticed that your CPU runs at its max clock speed on a vanilla hackintosh install. This is bad for two reasons - it is actually slower than the normal stepping curves Intel generates (no turbo boost), and wastes a ton of power/CPU life. Fear not - you can inject an SSDT into Clover...

    X79 SpeedStep

    I'm wondered, I have readed that in 10.9.2 most X79 CPU's now have SpeedStep working OOB, and some other people say that's wrong. I have noticed my CPU (3930K) actually change frequencies, but not sure if that means I have SS enabled features. Is there any new information about it?
