Hackintosh is otherwise fine except for inconsistent responses to being put to sleep. Sometimes, when I put the computer to sleep, it goes down fine. Lights and fans off and everything. This usually happens after a restart or the first time that I put it to sleep. Usually, the next times that I...
Update Feb 18, 2016
I originally wrote this guide to help people with X79 systems get XCPM CPU power management working quickly and easily. Now I feel it's time for a re-write to explain things a little better.

I'm no expert by any means, but what I've gathered is Thunderbolt generally requires integrated graphics. How is it that the new Mac Pro will run E5 Xeons and still have Thunderbolt 2.0? Is TB2.0 allowing other means of accessing graphics? Are the new E5 Xeons going to have integrated graphics...

Hi all very new to this as I was going with a 7/8 build but have decided on an 8/OSX dual boot. The case makes this easy with the ability to switch between drives without having to install on one drive two partitions.
