    I had to change the SMBIOS settings to Macpro5,1 temporarily using Clover configurator running the web driver for my GTX 950 card and rebooting. It should remove the nv_disable=1 flag from your boot arguments and add nvda-drv=1 flag and boot without issue.

    If it does you may have the wrong web driver installed.

    Hi Dstrams, I would like to ask you, what kind of case you fit in this board with this cooler?
    How much noise you get from this build ?

    I have almost the same setup:

    GA-X99-UD4P, i7-5820k and GTX 960. Everything seems to work fine but...I still get a random number of "Unsynchronized TSC for cpu x" messages even with voodootscsync.kext

    I think it's affecting my cpu performance. In both, Windows 10 x64 and MacOS X 10.10.5 I get almost exactly the same single core performance result in GeekBench 3...but multicore results are almost 3000 points higher in Windows.

    I checked the cpu real speed in MacOS X using Intel Power Gadget, and both systems are running at the same speed.

    Any idea?

    I've never built a hackintosh before, but I'm doing some research now for a friend. Is it possible to upgrade your version of OS X through the app store on a hackintosh, or should it be done through a USB and bootloader?

    Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    Can I make it works with a Quadro or AMD Firepro?


    • 5820K
    • X99 - don't know model yet
    • Nvidia Quadro/ AMD FirePro
    • 16GB RAM
    • EVO 850 250GB

    I want to know opinions first before I buy any hardware... How is the compatibility of X99 with hackintosh today?

    Thanks!

    Is anybody using this same setup (X99-UD4, 5820K, 16GB ram, 970GTX) having crashes using internet / youtube sometimes?
    In this thread we were discussing this glitch that occurs sometimes, but we still don't know what causes it.
    In general Yosemite works good on this setup, but has some issues whith ethernet/internet causing the system to total freeze. I'd like to figure out what causes it. El Capitan doesn't have it apparently..

    Not matter what I'm constantly stuck on the Apple Screen just before installation. Can anyone lend advice as to what this could be? Verbose method runs into black screen. ive used npci=0x2000, npci=0x3000, dart=0, PCIRootUID=0, nv_disable=1 GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No, -v, -x, -f, cpu=1, updated bios, turned on vt-d, and other recommended settings, ran optimized settings.

    Is it a case of UniBeast not being compatible with my hardware? kexts not up to date with my hardware?

    Hi Colton,

    I was just wondering what MultiBeast quick start option you chose?

    Cheers

    Hello! I was thinking of doing a build that is described in this thread: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/195668/

    Here are the proposed CPU, Motherboard, and GPU:
    • CPU: Intel Xeon E5-2683 v4 (16 cores/32 threads, and only around $400-$500!)
    • Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-X99-UD4 (just like your system)
    • GPU: EVGA GTX 780 Ti (reference card)

    Below are my questions:
    1) Does the processor matter - will the Xeon work? If not, then can I just follow this thread's installation instructions because we have the same motherboard?

    2) Does El Capitan pose any difficulties with what's listed above as working (I think I've heard that sleep isn't working with X99)? How about Sierra?

    3) What is kernel patching (in a nutshell), and do we do it because of the CPU or because of the motherboard's chipset?

    Thank you so, so, so much for your help! I'm so excited :D
