    Build advice - RAM, HDs...

    Hey everyone, I'm a composer/producer looking to build a slave machine to run my virtual instruments. I put together a build at CyberPowerPC, at first thinking I'd just use a PC slave, but then the thought occurred to me : why not try to run it as a Hackintosh and make things simpler? And so...

    Hi, first, sorry for the second post, tried editing my first one and it doesn't seem to work. I realized there is Prime95 for Mac after my last post in this forum. After running the torture test on that program, I saw my temps shoot up a lot (as expected). I originally wasn't going over 60...

    Overclocked Ivy Bridge Not Much Faster Than Overclocked Sandy Bridge?

    From what I've read/heard, it seems the Ivy Bridge is just smaller and uses less power than the Sandy Bridge, but is not really faster, especially if you overclock because you can't overclock an Ivy nearly as much as a Sandy. Does anyone know anything about that? Which one would be a better...

    Gigabyte UEFI - SSDT/DSDT and Overclocking

    Hi Everyone, I was in the same boat as a lot of people here. Once I udpated to the UEFI on my GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 board, I wasn't able to OC even with a valid SSDT. Fortunately, I figured out what the issue was. Previously, when overclocking in the Award BIOS, we would just enter the max turbo...
