Comments

The motherboard, CPU and VGA card are water cooled and complete HDD-less. For more Information about my Cooling System, click here: FrankPr's Sysprofile (German Language). All of my water cool components are bought at Aquatuning Germany. As a result, my system is very very silent under load.
My CPU is overclocked up to 4,7 GHz (24/7) @1,344V (per offset, all powersave options on). Memory run @DDR3-1866, CL 9-10-9-28-1T, 1,50V.
All onboard components work under OS X, including Audio, Bluetooth and WLAN.
I use UEFI version 0602.


Installation Notes

My UEFI setup is based on default settings, EIST and all C-States On, CSM On (UEFI and Legacy Boot), Security Off, all onboard devices On, all Intel Virtualization On, HT On, HPET On, the other settings are overclock settings and individual for this computer.
Installation was very easy. I read the clover guide on this side and make it.


Post Installation


Useful Tools



Download Clover from sourceforge and install it. Options are:

  • Install for UEFI Booting only
  • EmuVariableUefi-64 under Drivers64UEFI
  • OsxAptioFixDrv-64 under Drivers64UEFI

Install drivers. I download Multibeast from this side, extract and install the packages:


  • AHCI_3rdParty_SATA.pkg
  • PS2-Keyboard-Mouse.pkg
  • GenericUSBXHCI-v1.2.7.pkg
  • FakeSMC-v6.0.1123.pkg
  • FakeSMC-v6.0.1123-Plugins.pkg
  • FakeSMC-v6.0.1123-HWMonitor.pkg
  • AppleIntelE1000e-v3.0.4.pkg
  • AppleHDA-1150.pkg
  • HDAEnabler1.pkg
