    Hi !

    ... after 4 days of searching this forum I surrender and decided to ask You ;-)

    I´ve done a fresh 10.12.6 Install on my Hackitosh
    GA Z77X-UP5 TH, i7-3770K, GTX670

    OMG ! SOLVED, sorry my fault !

    I forgot to inject the maximum CoreFrequency in Bios ...
    Don´t know why, but for some reason I thought there is no need
    to do this when overclocking with SSDT.
    ... sorry for that mistake ;-P
    Now iv´e set it to 4200 MHz,
    used "~/ssdtPRGen.sh -c 2 -t 77 -turbo 4200 -target 1 -x 0"
    and it works like it should!

    Thank You anyway !

    Any chance you could post your config.plist. I have the exact same setup.
