Hello I have successfully got my Hackintosh running as it was back in October 2015 and can access the desktop YAY! :thumbup:

It keeps hanging and freezing if any power state comes into effect UN-YAY! :thumbdown:

Hi guys i found this thread http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/295587-power-management-for-sandyivy-bridgehaswell-cpus/ and would really appreciate some guidance as to whether or not i should follow it and if it is still the best workaround for my problem.

My Hardware

i7 3770k
Asus P8P67 PRO (a nightmare with Hackintosh's)
16GB Corsair Vengeance
2 x 980Ti GTX in SLi
Samsung EVO 500GB SSD

Your opinion matters! I've just spent 10 days getting the hack to this stage, last thing i want to do is mess up all that work.

Many thanks in advanced.

A lot of folks have reported success with the steps in this guide: http://www.tonymacx86.com/mavericks-desktop-support/128926-mavericks-native-cpu-igpu-power-management.html. It says it's for Mavericks, but it's still applicable to later versions of OS X.
