did you check under /Library/Application Support/Boinc Data ?
If you don't see it there you may have to create the cc_config.xml file.

Sry about the previous post (I found the folder, it was hidden...)
I created a cc_config.xml, but when I try to "read" it with Boinc it says:
"Missing start tag in cc_config.xml"

Without adding anything shouldn't the file look like:
<cc_config>
<log_flags>
</log_flags>
<options>
</options>
</cc_config>

Yes

Anticipating what you might want in it, it would be:

<cc_config>
<options>
<use_all_gpus>1</use_all_gpus>
</options>
</cc_config>

Make sure you create it with Notepad, with nearly all other editors hidden charactors are inserted which mess it up as a cc_config file

'EUREKA!
Thank you for all your help.
When using TextEdit I had to change the format to a plain text.
Again, thank you all!

I just wanted to point out for future researchers of this thread, in order to get my cc_config.xml file to be read on Mac OS X Mavericks, I had to su to root and create the file in:

/Library/Application Support/Boinc Data/projects/www.primegrid.com/


I had to set permissions with:

chmod 755 cc_config.xml


And I also had to change the owner of the file:

chown boinc_master cc_config.xml


And then when I reloaded the config file using the client gui, the second GPU was recognized and the fans started really spinning!

thanks for the effort by all in this thread!
