Post I did the upgrade to 2700k on my imac 27 inch 2011

Here is the image now how do we edit these boot files on mountain lion 10.8 to get the install done????


Im currently on 10.7.5 and can not get to 10.8 osx need to figure out how to get these files on the cd to accept the intel 2700k CPU.

I just tried to install Mavericks on my i7 2700k upgraded iMac, did someone successfully complete the upgrade?

On 10.8, I have removed AppleHWSensor.kext, but looks like this trick is not working anymore on 10.9.

Post 2700k and 3770k intel imac 2011 mid 27. Inch samsung ssd

No I have tried the install with a intel 3770 k on my mid 2011 27 inch imac with samsung 830 ssd the screen won't power on!! I'm back to my 2700k and mavrick but when I reboot mavrick running the 2700k CPU the computer gives me error screen and to press any key to reboot so mavrick and 2700k CPU don't work either unless some one figures out what's causing mavrick and the 2700k CPU glitch or which file to edit again the 3770k i7 intel did not even power in the screen so that was a waste of time trying !

Hi,
Before I throw an i7-2600 into my imac mid 2011, 21.5" I would like to know your experiences on the higher watts (95 vs 65). Any negative effects?
