Hello all,

I've recently put together this hackintosh with the help of Stork's amazing Maximus Hero VIII guide. Everything appears to be working, though I have checked the CPU frequency with HWMonitor as well as Intels Power Gadget and they are showing the frequency at a constant 4.2GHz when idle. I installed the SSDT for my CPU as detailed in the guide, and was wondering if this were normal for the CPU? I don't particularly want it burning out on me after a little bit of use! Any help is greatly appreciated thanks :)

Nope that's not normal for a hackintosh where you want power management.. Mine is throttling down and up etc. Have you tried enabling the P and C States in Clover under /BOOT/? That shouldn't be needed when you use the SSDT, but if you try that and it works, then you'll know that you've done something wrong with the SSDT..
