Fix: Stuttering Sound With Amd Cpu (10.9 & 10.8)

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody.This is a quick way to fix stuttering Audio will start to stutter - thats why you have clear sound when you move your mouse around.

 

Now for me, i try'd different kext's and solutions like activating SSE2 on Voodoo PrefPane and almost every other solution that is floating around on the Interwebs.

 

So im using a Quadcore AMD Cpu , and my way to "fix" this bug is to put the CPU usage on 100%.

But since you're using multiple Cpu's your performance won't go down. For example i can still run everything very fast and crisp, even games still run without any problems. Long story short > i noticed no difference in performance.But this might change on a different AMD CPU . So try it on your own risk. But let me assure (this won't brick your OSX Installation its just a terminal command).

 

 

Step1. Open Terminal.app

Step2. "yes > /dev/null" without quotation marks into terminal app.

Step3. Press Enter and enjoy proper Audio.

How to Disable:   "no > /dev/null"  without quotation marks into Terminal app.

 

 

Note: Terminal have to run as long as you want to have this "Fix" applied.

When you close Terminal, it resets itself. So just start the command and minimize Terminal !

Enjoy and have a nice day! And much thanks to Niresh crew for providing great mackintosh distros.

Sorry to hear.. the result probably changes depending on what AMD Cpu is being used.

In my case im using the Phenom2 X4 BE 955 .Here is a video as proof that its working.. maybe you made a typo in terminal.app ? :(

This works for me, but there has to be a better way to fix this issue.  Any ideas?  I am new to the Hackintosh realm but am willing to help where I can.  I have a Phenom2 x4 965.  Everything else works perfect except the crackling Audio.

This works for me also. Thanks a lot was losing hope lol. Is there any way to have this automatically applied during startup? This This way it does not have to be done manualy every start up.

Maybe a late response but i have the same motherboard and CPU as you and i was also screwing with it for 2 days.

Here is the FIX:

  • Enter the Bios from your motherboard.
  • Go to Jumpfree/CPU config > DISABLE "AMD TURBO CORE"
  • Do this fix and it will work! :)

I think many people with processors that have AMD Turbo Core have the same issue, and i think this needs to be set in the Niresh Install Guide

    • Hi guys I've installed Yosemite Zone 10.10.1 on my PC who has the following specs: CPU: FX-8850 GPU: R7 260X MOBO: 990FXAUD3 REV 4.0

      I installed yosemite zone 10.10.1 without any problem and successfully installed the ethernet drivers with the PKG i found in the downloads section of hackintosh zone, I wanted to update to 10.10.5 to install the R7 260X drivers which i can download from the site but now when i enter my bootflags: npci=0x2000 and PCIRootUID=1 and I choose my ssd from chameleon bootloader it boots up and I can see it starts to load stuff when i put -v  but then the screen goes black and the system just reboots. Pls tell me how to fix thanks in advance.
    • Hi DAFFY,   Yes. High Sierra is actually installed on a Z270-F from Asus ROG. Everything's good with it.
    • Dear Community,   First of all I would like to apologise for my horrible English knowledge.   Well, I have one main problem with my hackintosh.   The first and most annoying problem is gIOScreenLockState 3. I've just tried some kexts but still this problem. Now, if I start without -v I just get black screen.   Thanks for reading,   TheXeno      
    • Can anyone specify the best or minimum NVidia GPU for Yosemite OS? Can someone list it? including the best GPU that can be supported with the nvidia web drivers. Does GT730 is supported? I only have DDR3 slot for my motherboard.
    • Thank you for your immediate response :)
