"Kernel Panic at startup. Impossible to install"

October 28, 2007  |  By Cube of Movies

 |  Version: PowerLogix CPU Director 2.3b6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
A real crap, a pain in the ass, a kernel panic generator. Can't start with that driver installed in my Cube with Dual 7447 1.7 CPU. Need to bot in safe mode to trash it. Be aware!

"DO NO INSTALL - Unless you have half a day to..."

Summary

...achrive privious version to install
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
PLEASE READ !!!!! ****** DON'T Believe the Hype -Below - to a point ****** Was able "to successfully" install "update" the word is install... In safe mode managed to install then never loaded during verbose mode throttle issue. Then with FORCE restart severely corrupted by hard drive to the point where disk first aid in both Install DVD and classic could not fix this is Severe!!!! I had to resort to rebuilding the desktop remember that option??? In classic? After doing that I was able to revert AGAIN Back to 10.4.7 the ONLY stable OS for upgrade cards...

In my Opinion this is MacSales and Powerlogix FEBEL attempt for a fix for an OS that apparently is figuring out how to disable these card from working...

Next year I am buying a new Mac and selling my Card on eBay and NEVER refer anyone to MacSales / OWC again.

They have your money but no support...

****** DO NOT INSTALL This Update: OS Freezes during PKEXT install and never does install **** Waste of a Saturday morning re-installing OS 10.4.7 (Only stable version- For Powerlogix Processor Card...

4 months waiting for a update that is even worse than 2.3b5 because with 2.3b5 at least you get an error message instead of your OS Freezing.

If this is sign of how PowerLogix and MacSales supports their products, would think twice about supporting them....

"Love this app."

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have a TiBook 1GHz that I over-clocked to 1.2GHz and this is the only app that accurately displays CPU speed, 1.2GHz full and 667MHz reduced. Any other app seems to read some setting still showing 1GHz - even when the processor is reduced.

"THANK GOD"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
3 MONTHS!!! Hey i'll be happy if they just continue supporting 10.4.x til the end, wouldn't mind if they didn't support 10.5. Who knows if 10.5 will even run on a PPC... may be INtel only... It did freeze while installing CPU Director... reboot and it fine now.

I'm Giving 'Price' one star because it cost me 3 months

"They Released 2.3b4. Hooray!"

April 13, 2006  |  By strabismus--2008

 |  Version: PowerLogix CPU Director 2.3b4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
The release of CPUD v2.3b4 for OS X 10.4.6 is on the PowerLogix front page, thankfully. It's good to know OWC/PL can do it when they try. CPUD does almost all I need it for. The only criticism I have is for OWC/PL's poor past support regarding 10.4.5 when we had to wait several months for the update, which was soon redundant when 10.4.6 appeared. A very delayed Hooray!

"works great here..."

October 01, 2005  |  By frankp_aus_h

 |  Version: PowerLogix CPU Director 2.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
better than Sonnet Cache (which originally came with the cpu upgrade Sonnet Crescendo PCI G4/800 and works fast but seems to cause instabilities, and very much better than the XLR8 Mach Speed Controller 2.4.1 which I recently bought, that just caused kernel panic on startup even before I was able to write my serial). I have a fully loaded 9600 with all PCI slots used. XPostFacto helping it running X. Had some problems activating L2/L3 cache when upgrading 10.2.8 to 10.3.9, the Director 2.1 now seems to make it work stable again (1.5f didn't).

"Works as advertised!"

July 28, 2005  |  By want

 |  Version: PowerLogix CPU Director 2.1b1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have used this FREE utility for years. Now kindly updated for 10.4.2, CPU Director works flawlessly. On my slot-load iMac, upping the L2 cache ratio one notch adds a nice zip (any more is too fast for this machine and will eventually result in a kernal panic). Nice little tweak for an older Mac.

"Something seems fishy here . . ."

July 15, 2005  |  By jamesforrester--2008

 |  Version: PowerLogix CPU Director 2.1b1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Although CPU Director 2.1b1 beta seems to operate on my B&W Mac with a PowerLogix 1.2 GZ ZIF G3 processor, after setting the opetaing speed of the ZIF, there is little noticeable operating speed difference. Since I have nothing with which to benchtest the processor speed, I would like to find and hear back from someone who can thoroughly test the performance stated by CPU Director. After all the problems I have had with this ZIF processor (I am on my third one!) I often think that the performance boasts are just that. This software, at least, makes it "seem" to operate correctly with OS 10.4.2.
