AMD FX-8350 - Working With Yosemite

AMD FX-8350 Working With Yosemite



So, I've managed to get OS X Yosemite installed on the following hardware:

• AMD FX-8350 (4.0GHz)
• Gigabyte 78MLT-USB3 (Micro ATX Motherboard)
• 8GB Kingston 1333MHz Memory
• Seagate 1TB (OS X Drive)
• Western Digital 500GB (Windows Drive)
• Powercolor AMD Radeon 7770 (Gigahertz edition)

To install this, I used the Yosemite Zone dmg, and burnt it onto a USB stick using Win32DiskImager.
I installed as an upgrade from Mavericks, while using some extra boot flags, and everything is working fine.

The only thing that I have an issue with is the AMD Cool n' Quiet feature.
This doesn't seem to be functional, and the CPU overheats very easily if under load (with a low-end cooler) if I enable more than one core of the cpu (cpus=8.)

Below, I have a video showing exactly what hardware I am using, and an overview of specs.

Very nice man. 

Shame about that stock cooler sucks that AMD always put fairly pathetic coolers in,

Maybe a Hyper 212 Evo? I used this on my 8320 which was at 4.7Ghz for a while before going liquid.

I was pushing like 1.49V up the core so it was getting a bit toasty tongue.png but at stock speeds the 212 evo will give fairly nice temps and also it's a bargain biggrin.png

I do agree that stock AMD coolers suck. I had a Corsair H40 water cooler, which worked fine under OS X.. Until the pump died.
I've also used a 212 EVO in a previous build. I might grab another for this one.

Thanks for looking! :)

homem muito agradável. 

Vergonha sobre esse cooler é uma porcaria que a AMD sempre colocar refrigeradores bastante patéticas em,

Talvez um Hyper 212 Evo? Eu usei isso no meu 8320 que estava em 4.7GHz por um tempo antes de ir líquido.

Eu estava empurrando como 1.49V-se o núcleo por isso estava ficando um pouco toasty tongue.pngmas pelo estoque acelera os 212 evo dará bastante agradáveis temps e também é uma pechinchabiggrin.png

    • I've added every kext possible, Lilu, IntelGraphicsFixup, changed my config settings nothing so far has worked. I tried asking for help on the tony mac forums, but was banned the minute I sent the progress report they asked for, for software piracy. (which makes no sense because any hackintosh is software piracy anyway) but regardless of that, I still have very choppy graphics, and only 4 mb of VRAM, as shown in the about my mac screenshot I linked below. Can anyone help?
    • Hi, 
      I finally decided to install macOS high sierra on my laptop - Lenovo IdeaPad 720S 15IKB.
      It has:   i5-7300HQ, Intel HM175
      12GB DDR4 RAM
      A Samsung 256GB NVMe Drive
      GTX 1050 Ti With Max-Q   The first try did not boot so i had to use some args to get it to boot. The first problem arises due to the fact that all available usb slots are usb 3.1. The installer did not recognise my keyboard and trackpad and i had to install some kexts to get them working. Well, after i intalled the kexts, It was stuck in a boot loop. I was fed up and it was late so i decided to download hackintosh zone from niresh. I would install it later. Well, when i run hackintosh zone it gets stuck at the apple logo after loading. I ran it in verbose mode and it gets stuck in the following   [Date] localhost[1] <Error>: Host-level exception raised: pid = 541, thread = 0xbf1f, exception type = 0xd, codes = { 0 }, states = { 0 }
      busy timeout[0], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'
      busy timeout[1], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'
      busy timeout[2], (240s): 'AppleEFIRuntime'   Then the screen goes blank and it starts over. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
    • ASUS laptop X550D can run hackintosk ? help me ! please!!!   thanks alot
    • Oh, thank you but in the meantime I thought again and have installed High Sierra instead. It works just fine, put a camera, bluetooth, wifi, all working OK. I only have to solve a little problem when doing restart it freezes but after shutdown it comes up good! I have also Win7 on same mbr disk and I start with the installation usb but I think go over to EasyBCD to make a smoother boot. If your experienced I would appreciate very much any hints for helping me in this direction.
