Hey guys,

I have almost the same build, only a different graphics card (GTX 760). My question is if anyone else experiences similar problems as I do with the following things:
- from 10.9.3 onwards my audio ports fail after a few hours and I need to reboot to get them to work again (I'm using mic + headphone port)
- I guess from the beginning on: when I access my WD Server (mainly iTunes) and I import lets say a bigger amount of data (2 CD's in ALAC) my systems ethernet ports fail and I need to reboot (the server still works fine)
- yeah, and the same issue with the USB 3.0 ports

If anyone experienced similar issues I'd be grateful for a reply or even solution.

Cheers,

VZvL

Hi all,

I have a build pretty much identical to Slugnet's and it has served me well

I upgraded from Mountain Lion to Mavericks (to 1.9.2) just in January, following the 1.9.2 instructions.

I was able to upgrade to 1.9.3 today without any problems, again following Stork' instructions here:
http://www.tonymacx86.com/418-os-x-10-9-3-update.html

However, on the Multibeast step, I used the latest MB 6.3.0 and the sound did not work. However it was easily corrected by going back to MB 6.1.0 from January (which I still had) and applying the sound driver + HDA Enabler + TRIM.

DIDN'T WORK
- MultiBeast 6.3.0 using:
- ALC898 driver (Realtek ALCxxx)
- Optional EFI Installed Bootloader Support (I think this replaced HDAEnabler?)
- Trim Enabler (10.9.x TRIM Patch)

WORKED
- MultiBeast 6.1.0 using:
- ALC898 driver (without DSDT)
- HDAEnabler (without DSDT)
- Trim Enabler (10.9.x TRIM Patch)

After using MB 6.1 to fix the ALC898 driver, I rebooted and then repaired permissions. Now my sound works!

I am guessing that the latest MB is a good thing (saw a new version of Chimera) and I may upgrade someday, but for now happy to have 10.9.3 up and running.

Cheers
hope this helps someone out there.

My post was written when MultiBeast 6.2.2 was the current version, and I had forgot to update it when MultiBeast 6.3 came out. So, thank you for calling this fact to my attention. :thumbup:

If you've used a MultiBeast version previous to MulitBeast version 6.3 and updated to 10.9.3, you should do a complete MultiBeast configuration "load" using your previously saved ".mb" file. Multibeast 6.3 changes how audio is done and needs Chimera v3+ to run correctly. As a result, I've updated my post.

Thanks Stork!

I loaded my old MB 6.1 config in Multibeast 6.3.0, applied the updated settings, rebooted, and repaired permissions.

Audio works just fine, and no problems at all. :D

Very cool of you to update the article and reply on this forum. I am mighty happy to keep my 1.5 yr old build up to date and running smoothly.

Cheers!

I have same mobo, processor, but I have GTX 660. With Multibeast 6.3, it seems to have fixed the crackle noise that I've been getting on the green port and black port. Hope it stays working perfect! :D

Just updated my hack to osx 10.9.4 with App Store Software Update.

also download MultiBeast 6.3.1 and updated following Config:

Quick Start > EasyBeast
Drivers > Audio > Realtek ALCxxx > ALC898
Drivers > Disk > 3rd Party SATA
Drivers > Misc > ElliottForceLegacyRTC
Drivers > Misc > EvOreboot
Drivers > Misc > FakeSMC v6.8.1307
Drivers > Misc > NullCPUPowerManagement
Drivers > Network > Intel > AppleIntelE1000e v3.0.4.1a
Drivers > System > AppleRTC Patch for CMOS Reset
Customize > System Definitions > Mac Pro > Mac Pro 3,1
Customize > Themes > tonymacx86 Black


everything seems working:

Audio - good!
Internet - good!
HDD - sure!
sleep - no prob!
graphics - forgot to check anything on MB 6.3.1 during update but it recognized my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2048 MB graphic. hooked up two Dell monitors. works fine.

cheers!

I guess this build is outdated, which means I can't even think about doing Yosemite.

Yeah, I'd have to disagree there... this setup only uses last year's stuff, meaning it'll likely support iterations of the Mac OS for years to come. By the time these parts are outdated and incapable of running the latest and greatest software - you'll probably have updated anyway.

It'll be a long time before your machine (on these parts) legitimately can't operate the Hackintosh.

Enjoy whatever setup you choose, it's a very rewarding process if you've never built your own rig!
