Hey everyone
I installed macOS Sierra on my pc with following specs:
Intel Xeon X3363 (with 771 to 775 mod)
Asus P5E with BIOS from Asus Rampage Formula, patched for Xeon support
nVidia GeForce 650

Everything work fine (except audio, which I don't have time to fix), but the main issue is that CPU is always working with highest multiplier, which makes CPU cooler work at high RPM and the noise makes my brain melt after ~half an hour. I tried to search for solution for Core 2 Duo / Core 2 Quad, which shoud be similar in my case, but haven't find anything useful. So, is there a way to enable automatic multiplier control on such old hardware?

I think it is the BIOS CPU microcode issue. You need update X3363 BIOS CPU microcode so that the BIOS can manage the x3363 clock speed. Just search x3363 microcode.
