I've been waiting for a while to finish my build, so I won't rush right now to finish it...
I would like to know if we have to wait for something with Xeon affordable and fully functional? (Do we need to wait for Apple MAcPro Xeon release?) Quad Core E5-1620 V2 ? Look like the Haswell...
I was about doing the same kind,
but I was asking myself why not choosing a MotherBoard with Thunderbolt : GA-Z87X-UD5 TH
and also I'm not sure if the CPU really need a "K" maybe it's better buying a more simple like : Intel Core i7-4771 or a i5-4670 ?
What do you think ?
Someone can help me to point the differences between those MB Gigabyte "Z87X-UD7 TH" "Z87X-UD5 TH" "Z87X-UD5H" ? What are the main differences ? Wich one will be the best compromise ?
It look likes there's USB3 everywhere, and only the TH have thunderbolt included.
I think the...
i was going to buy this mother board but it's look like the price is going up more 100€ in France... 380€ in stead of 280€. It is because of Haswell coming soon ? Do you think I will have the possibility to find one Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5TH after haswell on the market ?
It's work for me on my Imac only the 6.5 lots of trouble with the 6.0
but I've got a friend also with a windows 7 expecting lot's of troubles to make it work.
This are not Hackintosh, but it's look like many people having trouble with AVID on windows actually.
I've got the same error message...
I still don't have any mother board.
I know that TB mean Thunderbolt.
I just don't know if it's better choosing an UP5 or a UD5.
I think I will choose an UP5 because it's look like easier to configure, as I can't found any good PCIe FW800.
Thanks for you help.
Sorry but I've already posting the same question in the post you're quoting... (going bald)
What's the cheapest way to do it ? for a full functional FW800.
Wich one are the troubles with this cheap PCIe card (Syba Low Profile PCI-Express 1394b/1394a (2B1A) Card, TI Chipset, Extra Regular...
Soon I will start ordering last parts to build my own Hackintosh.

Is there any website to list & compare easily differences between those motherboards ? (French prices on amazon)

ASUS P8Z77-M PRO / 120€
GA-Z77X-UD5H (rev. 1.0) / 200€
GA-Z77X-UP5 TH (rev. 1.0) / 270€
I need basically to see how many connections there is for :
So is there solutions OOB right now ? I would like to have a hackintosh with a normal FW800. That's the last component I'm looking for.
I've got two solutions right now :
- Buying a Z77X-UP5 TH then a cable for thunderbolt FW800. (80€+20€ more than the other solution)
- Buying a Z77X-UD5H with...
Look like the sound via HDMI seem's to work on both mother-board almost equal.
So the only difference is the Thunderbolt and maybe a few more connections for data devices (on the UP5 TH).
It's hard choosing for 80€ differences as we don't know how the thunderbolt will evolve ?
