    I followed this guide and have everything working wonderfully. Thank you. I was thinking about upping from the 4930k to the 2680 V2. I know it's compatible with the board and that I'd have to adjust the VoodooTSCsync from 11 to 19, but does anyone know if there's more to it than that? I am on 10.10.4

    thanks again,

    You ever get this worked out? On a solid system with the 4930k but looking to upgrade to the 2680 V2 and would like to know what challenges I may face prior to install.

    Thanks!

    I've had great success with this guide but am trying to go to the 2697v2. Bios sees everything as fine but when I boot into OSX I get the apple with the bar under it but it only goes about 1/2 way up and stops. Thoughts?

    Great to hear it worked for you!

    I have a little issue with my computer (similar build) only running one cpu. I have installed the VoodooTSCSync.kext as well. Its quite frustrating to have 4 cores but only one is active. Geekbench score is around 3000 for both single and multicore.

    Boot flags used: kext-dev-mode=1 cpus=1 npci=0x2000 -v. If i take out cpus=1 it wont boot up and gets stuck at this:

    without cpus=1.jpg

    Any help??

    I know this is an old thread, but I'm curious if you plan a Sierra update with your rig...

    I have just update my X79-UP4 to Sierra no issues.
    I also then bought a used 4930K to replace my 3820.

    Issue I have is I only get 16900 on geekbench, if I reboot to windows I get 18500
    (Bios F7, clocked at 4,1ghz)
