  1. I ended up buying a 4K monitor. It's a LG UHD 32UK550. With the HDMI cable connected to the GTX 680, there were only two resolutions available: super tiny type at full res, or gigantic type at 1080 res. The Display Port cable gave a nice selection of 5 different resolutions with the middle one being perfect! Both cables gave audio to the built-in speakers. I'm very happy with the upgrade from my old 24" 1080 monitor, and the stand on the LG is nicely adjustable up and down and tilts. If you haven't tried using a large monitor like this, give it a try!
  2. Under PCI in system info, my 680 GTX says link speed of 2.5G/s on my hackintosh, but a similar 680 (loaded with a new mac graphics bios as per dosdude's youtube) on my 2008 Mac Pro 3,1 running High Sierra it says 5G/s link speed. My Mac Pro has the Nvidia drivers loaded, would that make the difference in reported link speed? I haven't tried loading the Nvidia drivers on my Mojave hackintosh yet.
  3. I've got a new mobo to play with: a Gigabyte GA Z170 HD3P which can take a M.2 card. Has anyone recommendations for a M.2 card that will perform in a hackintosh environment? Looking at my local store, CC, they have the new SAMSUNG 970 EVO Plus M.2 NVMe PCI-E 250GB Solid State Drive, Read:3,500 MB/s, Write:3,300 MB/s which has a huge jump in write speeds over the regular EVO. Is it worth buying a pricey M.2 like this? Or should I get a cheaper one since it will work the same, thanks! https://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=179_1229_1296&item_id=135644
  4. Who has tried a newer 4K monitor with an older GTX 680 like with my Asus 4GB version? Is it working ok with the mini DV port from the 680, or is the HDMI port the better way to go? How about audio, is it working? Thanks!
  5. I've been quickly rebooting and looking at the Gigabyte bios for cpu temps after testing overclocking. With the 6600K cpu, there are 3 OC options: stock 3.5 GHz, OC 4.2 GHz, 4.3, and 4.4. So far, 4.2 and 4.3 have no problems at all running Mojave but 4.4 caused a couple reboots. Temps have gone from about 37 to about 41 C when over clocked and I'm using a cheap air cooler. Geekbench scores did go up significantly using over clocking even at 4.2 GHz. I also upgraded from 2133 MHz ram to 2933 MHz which made a fair jump in Geekbench scores as well. My poor man's rig made with used parts for a few hundred dollars is outperforming my friend's new 2017 3.5 GHz i5 27" iMac.
  6. Unfortunately I tried a fresh install and then update and install just the cpu temp, plus hardware monitor and still did have the boot problem. There's some conflict I guess.
  7. I was able to update and install the kexts and had the sensors working. Then, I updated Clover and after that the machine would not finish loading Mojave and rebooted by itself. I did a fresh install, and after loading the fakeSMC kext every time the system would not boot and would restart itself. Is there a trick to updating fakeSMC without this happening? I have not been able to see Hardware monitor working except for the one first time.
  8. Never mind, after a couple reboots CC was able to mount the EFI partition, thanks!
  9. Thanks! I was able to update using Clover Configurator.
  10. I donated $10USD. It couldn't be easier to donate using PayPal! Looking forward to Catalina, Niresh, thanks for these awesome releases!!
  11. Never mind, after a reboot my GTX 680 Airplay is working to my ATV4K now, woot!😀
  12. I'd like to try overclocking my 6600K and Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3P mobo and I'm looking at monitoring cpu temps. What is the best way to do this? Is istat menus worth using? will it work with Niresh Mojave on my rig? If anyone has experience with overclocking and cpu temps please let me know what your experience is, thanks!
  13. I have a nicely working Mojave on my Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3P mobo but I would like to update Clover from the installer version to the current version. My SSD is formatted APFS. When I use Clover Configurator to mount the EFI partition nothing happens. Then I realized the EFI folder is on my system partition, duh! Then when I launched the Clover updater from Configurator, and tick the boxes to not install on an EFI partition, the updater runs, but Clover will not update. I see a new folder on my system drive with the latest Clover as a backup though. What do I have to do to make it work? Thanks!!!!! Martin
  14. Do any of the above discrete graphics cards support Airplay? I've noticed that the built-in HD graphics on Intel chips support Airplay, but my GTX 680 does not. Thanks!
  15. Looking ahead to the next awesome release from the studios of Niresh, when is officially the date when donations will be accepted for the next Installer? I'm looking to donate more cash for the cause : )
