Hi , did you try installing Mavericks on to SR2 board?
Hi , can anyone help to get this lci e card working on sr2 mackintosh. i can install OSX on it but my board docent see it to boot from.
makspaints - please provide a complete description of the problem, OS X version, BIOS version, GPU(s), memory, drives, dual boot, etc.
There are not many running SR2 systems and that maybe the reason that no one is responding.
Hello neilhart , thank you for replying . I was trying to boot from sonnet tempo ssd PCI-E card but my BIOS didnt see it , altho when i boot up to osx 10.8.5 i can see the card ant the drive . I can also install OSX directly on to it , guy at the costumer service was not in any help since he has no idea about what his product is and how to get it working AT ALL he said it works fine on Gigabite boards. So ill just return it to B&H , i got rocket raid instead and it works like a charm , got two 500 840 evos in raid 0 and getting 790 wright and 920 read , with 10hz oc on pci lane i can get 820 wright and 950 read but for some reason i loose USB3.0 completely
Are the old X56xx-CPUs still able to compete with more modern solutions? Because the SR-2 seems to still be pretty expensive (400€+ on Ebay) and for that money you in theory could buy a modern Hexacore with a board. Or are the cores six extra cores for certain tasks still so much better then a said CPU?
The 56xx cpus still compete with the new CPU´s, you can buy used 5650´s on ebay for around 100 dollars now and overclock them to 3.8-4.2 GHz with a SR-2 board.
Just Google the word:
You'll be able to find me on other forums, as I'm not here to often to answer your questions. In the meantime I hope you were able to get the help you needed here. Thank you...
Since you got it all runnin good, could you help me? i got a big problem. 10.6.3 runs great, but no lan drivers. can you tell me how you got your lan drivers?
As I said before (in the post reply above), Just Google the word:
Anyone interested in what I'm currently using, it's 10.8.5. Using anything above that, like Mavericks isn't too successful with the SR-2 setup from what I've been told. Thank you...
i've managed to get 10.11.5 running well. With Generate P and C-States also DropOEM ssdt.
Sound works with CodecCommander and Kext.
Graphiccard is GTX 980 4GB - AGPFix on 6.1 but im running 5.1 with deleted Kext for the Triple-Channel-Memory.
But. My 2x X5680s are just running x12/x25 mode, so i don't think my turbo is running. I got 28.000 in Multicore Geekbench in 64Bit mode, and just 2000 in Singlecore. When i use NullCPU i got 2800/2900 with Singlecore.
When i boot it is sometimes Turboratios: 111122 so i think nothing happens.
I dont have a DSDT or SSDT.
i tried Pikers script for SSDT but just Kernelpanics.
I am running Bios A58, do you have the patches for that Bios?
Would be awesome if you could help me.
You can text me here or where you prefer.
