    From the other thread information, those kernels will only operate one core, also the vanilla one is not for i7 series either.

    There is a good news for you two.

    The best kernel would be legacy 10.6.3.

    It seems very stable in my AMD Yes AMD
    For testing, so far so good.

    Maybe you want to try it, and also it was Geekbenched as well.

    Sweet, I was thinking that was the way to go. I have been trying to do that for a little bit now, but every time I try to update to 10.6.3, I always get a "mis-matched kernel" error and have to completely reinstall the OS. I'm not really sure how to proceed at this point, still looking though ... hopefully I find something.

    // UPDATE

    Okay, so I was finally able to update and successfully reboot up into 10.6.3 (used Windows to clear out the SleepEnabler.kext and then booted pointing it to the backed up mach_kernel). The problem now, unfortunately, is when I utilize the the 10.6.3 Legacy Kernel from kexts.com, it does allow me to boot with cpus=8, but when it finally "finishes" the boot, the screen gets garbled up (colors all over the screen, but there is nothing that can be seen) and just sits there. It never actually makes it to the desktop. I tried turning off the GraphicsEnabler=yes boot option, but nothing happens. It should be noted, however, that I am able to boot in safe mode (as well as the -f flag) ... but the OS now runs slower with the Legacy Kernel, than it did with the mach_kernel in 10.6.2. Any idea what's going on?
