Is the Shailua's ALXEthernet v1.0.2 driver patched in any way to prevent it from unloading?
I have to set my boot flags to -f for it to come back on reboot on my H77-DS3H V1.1 board.

Great! Installed the new fakeSMC and plugins. My 660ti is now monitored. CPU multiplier still doesn't report correct turbo states though (compared to MSRDumper, 2600k CPU and z68ma-d2h-b3 mobo).

Another nice bonus is that my boot time shortened tremendously. I used to have some kind of time-out of like 30sec that had to pass before it would load the GUI, all gone now :)

Thanks so much as always! My rig also has a faster boot time. What does "a patcher to support mixed Intel 6 and 7 Series configurations" mean exactly? Pardon the n00bish question.

LOL, montyvideo, I have the same question! I assume it refers to Sandy bridge and ivy bridge, but wondering if it refers to motherboards with mixed chips or using sandy bridge CPUs on ivy bridge motherboards (or vice-versa)

Even with only four possibilities my head is still spinning. This is all part of the addiction of hackintoshing, whatever new voodoo these geniuses cook up I still jump and say "oh I don't know what the heck that is but I want my computer to have it!"

The long version:

A patcher to allow the use of the graphics controller in Sandy Bridge CPUs on 7 Series (Panther Point AKA Z77, H77, etc.) motherboards and the graphics controller in Ivy Bridge CPUs on 6 Series (Cougar Point AKA Z68, P68, etc.) motherboards.
