CPU Overheating - Hackintosh Mavericks - Hackintosh Zone Jump to content

Recommended Posts

Here is my situation.  I've spent the most part of the last three days playing with OS X 10.8.5.  After a lot of frustration and multiple re-installs, I got it all working, a little laggy on the graphics, but working. Since I got thing figured out I decided to try Mavericks.  I got it to work with my system, except, when I boot after installing, I get half way through the setup and my computer shuts down because the CPU overheats.  I didn't have any problems like this with 10.8.5.  Is there something I can do or setup differently to get this working?


My setup:


ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0  Mobo

AMD FX 8320  8-Core Black Edition 3.5GHz  Processor

Radeon HD 7770 Core Edition  Graphics

32Gb DDR3  Ram

I think you'll notice that AMD doesn't have speedstep like Intel CPU since Intel is natively supported via power-management kext. For AMD, chipset will always run at full speed, thus, youll need a good cooling system in order for it to work all day at full speed ^_^ my CPU and Graphics card is just like yours and I have no problem running Mavericks for days at all (I have TRUE SPIRIT 120M for my cpu that keeps it under 50 degree celsius!) Keep on trying!

Yeah unfortunately, I only have the cooling system that came with the processor.  Mountain Lion ran fine though.  I was hoping there was a certain setting I could use to get past this.  If not I'll just go back to 10.8.5.

    • Hi, I have a HP G61-415ES with this configuration:
      Intel Pentium T4300 Dual Core 4GB RAM NVIDIA GeForce G 103M My Wifi card is AR5B95 (aka. 9285), and yes: works well with Windows, isn't broken. The thing is, I succesfully installed Niresh 10.8.5 and works perfect, but I tried and tried to get WiFi conection (no Wifi icon on status bar, no Wifi on Network settings)
      I tried installing io80211family.kext, RehabMan-Atheros, toledaARPT.kext and nothing. No icon, no settings... Also I read something about patch DSDT but I don't get nothing clear about how to use or how to patch, all guides are too complex for a person that don't have knowledge of that things. Also a lot of files fo download are missing and a lot of links to get reference are broken, and that increase the complexity of the problem.
      I have a PowerMac G5 MOD working very well, but obviosly I made with the ¨Buyer's Guide¨ and I didn't got any major trouble, but with this laptop it's guiving me headache
      I don't know what to do now, I'm reinstalling again 10.8.5 but I don't have more ideas.
