    Got my Gigabyte GA-X79-UD3 System working a few days ago, dead easy just followed the iBoot and MultiBeast guide, using the attached DSDT. Now running with Snow Leopard 10.6.8. Only issue was that I had to add the PCIRootUID=1 to get the install to complete, but a real breeze after that. Thanks to TonyMacX86.

    This Fractal Design case is on one of the best and quietest cases I have ever used.

    Yep this is PCI, it's works perfectly on Mac OSX. The chose of the X79 chipset means that PCI is supported natively by the chipset.

    Geekbench gives it a 13542, which is pretty damn good. Holding up well, not had a single issue in weeks
