Hey short! thanks for the updates! So the 10.9.1 update went smoothly? just update and reinstall audio drivers? and I should be good to go?

Thanks a bunch, I really appreciate the help from this build. Thanks to you I was able to get up and running with no problems whatsoever. Everything works for me, including audio (and no randkm freezes.).

My second day on the site and I have a new Hackintosh based on shorty's file and instructions, no deviation whatsoever, other than for my GPU. Built the hardware yesterday and did the install tonight. So far everything is working fine.

Exactly, 10.9.1 is running fine (just reinstall audio drivers).

After trying the new beta bios, f8m, I've decided to return to f8k. I had issues with fans being too loud on f8m as well as processor speed fluctuations in Mavericks. Multipler shifted from 8 to 32 in HW monitor every second. Some benchmark improvements, but overall I also had occasional problems with the system hanging on shutdown. F8K is better for me.

You could disable turbo states in BIOS. Fans are reacting to CPU load, especially in turbo mode. When in turbo - CPU core gets wormer faster, so fans are more aggressive. Going from 8 to 32 or 35 is normal as long it spends most of the time at 8x. Mine stays at 8x most of the time ~80%. Anyway, it all depends what system profile you are using. I am using iMac 14,1 (haswell CPU) which is closest at the moment for my HW configuration. MacPro3,1 has no clue about haswell, so I have no idea what it does with CPU states. Shorts is getting constant 35x with MacPro 3,1 profile.

It also depends what computer is running at the time. I have attached graphs without and with Chrome running on background.

Turbo was disabled, but with f8m mavericks always recognized the CPU as 3.89... I also tried AutoTune to fix the fans, but it was never as nice as the default f8k and there was some sort of bug in one of the startup programs that AutoTune ran that caused Windows to hang. So... I'm back to f8k. In Mavericks I get an 8x multiplier all the time with f8k, with the CPU at 3.49ghz with Mac 3,1. I might try Imac 14,1 at some point... thanks for the suggestion.

Hi all,
Hi Short,

do you confirm, now the stability works well with the new bios f8k (or m) ?

i have so much same freezes problems with a z87ud5th, tha'ts why i wondered if i change for the ud3h cause i dont have a time to wait a new bios. my dealer is ok.
so i want to be sure if now 32gb at 1600mhz are usable.

thank you.

Sam
