Pentium G3258, ANY SUCCESS?

Recommended Posts

So I'm trying to get maverick running on this awesome CPU, I've had full success with Mountain Lion 10.8.5 but no go on Maverick.

 

Did allot of reading, tried a whole lot of stuff. XCMP Free Kernels, patched AppleACPIPlatform.kext  and  Apple Intel CPU PowerManagement Kext, etc etc etc...

 

Wondering if anyone has had any success with this CPU.

 

The rig is:

Pentium G3258

GA-z87mx-d3h

8GB  Kingston HyperX Genesis 1600Mhz Kit

OCZ Vertex 3 120GB

Sapphire HD 5770 Video card. 

 

Thanks!

After much reading and searching I have discovered that it is unfortunately unsupported by 10.9 (and later probably). Running Mavericks was more for kicks that anything else anyways.  I feel that Fundamentally OSX hasn't evolved much since Snow Leopard. The CPU runs super great on ML. (i'm using Niresh's 10.8.5 distro)
 
The system is used as a HTPC plus for Audio interfaces/DJ controllers to which all run better under ML anyways. 
 
The CPU is great, I'm running it at 4.4.Ghz (it could run it at at least 4.5 but the ventilation of the G4 case I used is not the best plus I had to stick to the stock cooler to make it all fit) I'll eventually replace it with a low Profile CPU cooler when I come across one I like at a reasonable price.
 
I do recommend a gigabyte z87 or z97 board. (I tried it on an H81 board and couldn't get past 4.2) I'm also a system builder and strongly recommend gigabyte both for quality and OSX compatibility.
 
One thing to be mentioned is I currently only have 3 P-States 8/32/44 not the end of the world.  I'm sure more would be possible through tweaking but I don't have the time for it right now. My Priority was to get it running as the old machine it has replaced was old and time to be retired.
 
Anyways Hope this is all helpful.
 
Regards,

P.S. Here are some pics of the final product.

Mushin,
 
I was curious how you got Niresh 10.8.5 ML installed with your G3258?  I tried Niresh as well as vanilla installs with clover, and unibeast, all without success.  Were you able to pre load kexts or edit the plist file prior to install?  As a side note I did get Mavericks installed using clover, but its terribly glitchy.  I'm using a gigabyte Z97-HD3 motherboard, and the Haswell Pentium G3258.  Have tried UEFI, and bios.  You should make a guide!    :)

I didn't do anything special,

 

Just booted the Niresh 10.8.5 and installed without hardware kexts (Audio and network etc).  Then loaded my kexts via Multibeast (DSDT-Free option well).

 

Those z97 are being tricky.

 

I haven't had much luck with them,

 

I have a z97-ud5h here and can't get the dame thing to boot. it KPs all the time.  tried niresh, unibeast, etc... nothing...

    • please help me i am new to this.. i downloaded 4.7 gb file its in .tar.gz format i want to create a boot able flash drive .. but how should i select the dmg file
    • Exactly the same here.  also I'm trying a lot of boot flags and EFI files from another DMGs, but also I'm still Waiting for the solution.
    • Hello, friends, I need your help. I am using  Motherboard: Asus H81M-CS Processor:  Intel Core i3-4130 Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4400 I connected monitor via VGA port.   Everything is working great. Only issue right now I am having is graphics with VGA Port. Can any one suggest me to solve this issue?
    • It's because when you update, the kernel is replaced & so are the kexts. You need to either know how to use Terminal to copy the files after booting into your USB OR hook up your Start Disk Hard Drive to another Hack or Mac & copy over the proper kernel to System/Library/Kernels/ & also use kextwizard to install the kexts required as well & then repair cache. It's not that complicated if you have another Mac or Hack(intosh) to connect your drive to. There are some tutorials online. I'm by no means a pro at this at all, but I couldn't believe no one had replied to anyone here. I'm actually in the exact same situation, just finished updating my Yosemite Zone 10.10 to 10.10.5 through AppStore & it won't boot back in, then I remembered when I did this last time I had to connect my HD to another mac & copy over files, but I can't remember exact files so I came here to look for them & found this thread. I have been successful in getting an old MSI Platinum35 mobo with the 771/775 mod & Xeon x5460 with AMD 6850 running Sierra. I have been successful getting a newer MSI A88XM Gaming Mobo with x4 760k & AMD 6670 running Mavericks, then Yosemite, then High Sierra, and recently tested Sierra & it worked too. One thing though is that with Sierra & High Sierra the screen flickered different colors & I needed to download a thing called SwitchResZ & change the setting from "Billions of Colors" to "Millions of Colors" & it fixed it both times, even after I uninstalled it, the screen flickering was gone,.. So I have been through a few different processes (not including the updates like 10.10 to 10.10.5) But I am the farthest thing from a pro. Just followed tutorials, googled  & used distros, I think DeeKay was first one for Mavericks, then Yosemite Zone, Sierra Zone, & finally High Sierra Zone. But my digi 002r worked on all with the AVID 003 family 11.1.3 driver, except when it came to high sierra. For some reason it has sync issues with Midi/audio. Says something about not recognizing clock speed of 43,121Khz or something (cuz it should be 44.1Khz, or 48Khz etc) But it only happens on High Sierra. On Yosemite I had to do a trick cuz the play bar's timing was off, to fix it I went into bios & changed my multiplier from 100 to 103 so instead of my cpu running at 3.6Ghz, it was like 3.9Ghz. But for some reason that fixed it & Yosemite was stable, rarely (if ever) did it crash. But Sierra crashes all the time so I can't make music on it anymore, for some reason I don't think it was like this at first...maybe something I installed. Only reason why I changed was to keep up with Logic X updates. My Sierra build is up to date with Logic X 10.4 & Digi 002r runs great (11.1.3 driver) but like I said it crashes alot & I don't know why. So my thought was to return to Yosemite 10.10 & update to 10.10.5 like I did b4 & downgrade Logic X to 10.3 or 10.2.4(can't remember). So I got to find those files & instructions again to put the proper kernel & texts back that the update erased. That's what ya'll need to do as well. When I find it I will come back & edit my post or just post a new one.
