Budget GT-730 build

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,
I just completed the following build (my first) today:
1 x ASRock H97M Pro4
1 x Intel Core i3-4330
1 x G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB)

1 x ZOTAC ZT-71115-20L GeForce GT 730 


The biggest hurdle was to get the GT730 (10de:1287) to work. After struggling with the wrong driver from nVidia, I ended up being able to install WebDriver-343.01.02f01 after mimicking my install for a MacPro,5.1. Faking a MacPro,5.1 might not be needed on the long run as the installer can be edited to think it is running on the right machine/version. (cf. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1440150),but it's working like that, ymmv. 


This build is right now only using the following flags: kext-dev-mode=1 nvda_drv=1. The first one is needed to avoid kext signature issue with updated AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext plist. I am not sure this update is needed, but it's there I don't want to touch it. 


Sleeping seems to be functional, but I didn't investigate it much yet.
