Post Installation
6 and 8 core CPUs need a special kext called VoodooTSCSync by Cosmosis Jones of VoodooProjects. Install to /System/Library/Extensions using KextBeast or DPCIManager.

Edited for 6 core CPU with 12 Threads (IOCPUNumber=11):
Edited for 8 core CPU with 16 Threads (IOCPUNumber=15):

Depending on motherboard and UEFI version, it may be necessary to use NullCPUPowerManagement.kext. GA-X79S-UP5 UEFI version F4 or later does not require NullCPUPowerManagement. In order to boot successfully, npci=0x3000 is always necessary. Add to /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist under Kernel Flags.
