Asus Prime x570 Pro Temperatures in unRAID 6.9.1

Posted on 10th March 2021

unRAID 6.9.1 has finally been released into the wild. With it, an updated Linux kernel (5.10.21). This adds adds the ability to allow some of us running Ryzen processors to access CPU and Motherboard temperatures. Your mileage may still vary depending on the motherboard you are running however. For example, some Asus boards use the Asus WMI module while other x570 boards may require the nct6687 module. These example modules are not readily available in unRAID and are not covered in this article.

But for those of us on the Asus Prime x570 Pro, there is minimal work needed. This board utilizes the nct6775 kernel module included in unRAID 6.9.1, but requires we modify the boot arguments in order for it to detect fan and temperature sensors. Once the appropriate argument is added, and a reboot of the system is done, you should see the sensors in the “Dynamix System Temp” add-on. Installation of the add-on is not discussed in this article, but can be installed via “Community Applications“.

Display Mirroring on Sandy Bridge Hackintosh

Posted on 29th November 2012

Ever since Apple released Mountain Lion, I have always wanted the capability to use the new Display Mirroring feature with my Apple TV. When the updates came down, my wife’s iMac and MacBook Pro both immediately were able to utilize this feature while my 2009 MacBook Pro and Hackintosh were unable to. I knew that I would never get this to work on my MacBook Pro, but I wondered about the Hackintosh. One day, a simple solution presented itself.


Hackintosh Mountain Lion Upgrade

Posted on 20th July 2012

As the impending release of OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion is near, it is also time to make sure that we are ready to install Apple’s new OS onto our custom Intel hardware. We will cover the in-place upgrade from OSX Lion 10.7.4 to the GM(Final) release of OSX Mountain Lion.

This procedure has been confirmed to work with the official release of Mountain Lion in the App Store.

A clean install of Mountain Lion will not be covered in this article, but you can refer to this site which will walk you through a clean install. A clean install is great if you want to start from scratch, but for the rest of us with a lot of data, read on.

Tonymacx86 has released Unibeast for Mountain Lion which can be used to perform a clean install.


Intel i5 “Sandy Bridge” OSX Lion Install on Asus P8Z68-V/GEN3

Posted on 21st January 2012

I came to a point where I felt that my simple Intel e2200 Hackintosh system was in need of an upgrade. I had been wanting to look into building either an i5 or i7 Sandy Bridge system. When a local retailer decided to put the i5-2600k and i7-2600k on sale, I could not resist the temptation and found myself researching for the perfect motherboard.

Here, I will outline the software build from start to finish, and show how easy it is to build a i5 Sandy Bridge Hackintosh with OSx Lion.
