Need Help!!!!! High Temp readings during idle and run.
I have built a hackintosh using an msi pro-e board and Intel i7 920, Originally I was hoping to create a raided snow leopard boot, but after trying multiple times the best I got was being able to boot from iBoot but I was unable to create a kernel to boot from even after using multibeast I was unable to get the system to recognize the raided boot drives. I now have snow leopard running on a single 10000 rpm wd drive, it is stable and boots directly from the drive without iBoot. However I am unable to control any of my fans. I was able to go into the BIOS and turn up the cpu fan speed, which i believe was done by increasing the voltage to the fan, At idle I have a cpu temp of 72C and during a render on Maya or while using photoshop, my cpu reads 100 and above.
Does anyone know of any programs or kexts that will allow me to manually control fan speed. I have tried smc and a few other freeware programs without success. I run the installs for the programs and they complete, but they never actually install onto my drive. I have installed a few temp programs and istat non of the programs ever detect any of my 4 fans. I read a post that says to remove the following kext, AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext. I cannot find were to delete this, and is it safe to do this or will I be destroying important kext.
Thanks for reading.
In hopes of a solution,
I got my temps down, took apat my entire machine yesterday, found that the cpu heat sink was not properly installed by the person I bought the machine from. I cleaned the entire contacting surfaces and reapplied some arctic silver also I dropped the placement of the hard drive cage and added another intake fan directly in front of the cpu. Idle temps down to 30 c and maya render 75.
After getting suck great temps I went into the bios and enabled xmp and overclocked to 3.2, 3.4, and 3.5, i found 3.4 to be extremely fast and stable, I rendered a full 3d scene, lit and textured which took almost 3 hours at the originally 2.67 frequency, at 3.2 the scene took 44 minutes at 3.4 it took 40. This machine is a beast, so glad to have a running hack that is fully operational and is pretty much the fastest machine under $700.
I have done a full build, trouble shoot and all. If anyone needs any help with their build, or if you have any question, or possibly looking to have a machine built, I am here to help.
