Hi, I have a SFF with an i7 processor HD4000 running Mojave. Does anyone know if Catalina will run on my system?
HD4000 is fully supported in Catalina. It is still in beta so some things like sound may not work yet.Hi, I have a SFF with an i7 processor HD4000 running Mojave. Does anyone know if Catalina will run on my system?
This is possible. I've got a feeling that when 10.16 GM comes out in Sept./Oct. 2020 all traces of Nvidia drivers will be absent. So that would mean that 2012/13 iMacs and the 2012 Mac mini would no longer be supported. There will still be ways to run 10.16 on your HP 6300. We'll have to worry about that when the time comes in a little over a year.Looks like it could be the last OS to run though
Fan speeds are controllable via the BIOS in your HP 6300/8300 have you tried that first ?If anyone could give me an advice about the fan noise? Is that normal to have always a certain fan noise at the same intensity? Is this probably the power supply fan?
I'd like to improve my computer silent, or at least have some quiet moments when not in heavy use.
Thanks for the detailed explanation!Fan speeds are controllable via the BIOS in your HP 6300/8300 have you tried that first ?
Sometimes you'll get a refurb where the fans have a lot of hours on them and they get noisier.
They can be replaced with new HP fans or the Arctic 90 mm fans also work well and are quieter.
To find out which one is noisiest, disconnect the fans one by one while the PC is running to hear each one's noise level.
If you have the SFF for example, disconnect the front fan first, then then the rear exhaust and you'll be left with just the noise from the PSU fan and your graphics card.
The HP Elite and Pro lines are made to be run in noisy office and warehouse environments so HP didn't bother to include more expensive silent fans for home users that prefer little to no noise from fans.
Yes, you need a Displayport cable or a DP to HDMI cable/adapter if your monitor only has HDMI. Yes, igfx always use some of the system ram to function. From the guide in post #1 If you have a CPU with HD4000 graphics you can use your HP's onboard DisplayPort output. If your LCD monitor only...www.tonymacx86.com
