Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum (and Hackintosh community in general) and just wanted to lay out the build I'll be putting together this weekend. I didn't originally plan on a Hackintosh build, but after some detective work, I believe I've purchased the right Goldilocks combination of parts...
Finally I completed a fully working installation of this powerful build. I wanted to share what I learned to help somebody with the same build.
CPU:Intel Core i7-4930K (6 core)
MotherBoard:GA-X79-UP4 BIOS F5
Graphics: GeForce GTX 780 (3GB)
Ram: Crucial Ballistix Sport LP (8gb to start)...
I've put together a list of components based on all the research I've done for the compatibility of my build. These are the parts I've compiled:
Asus Rampage IV Black Edition
Intel Core i7-4930K LGA 2011 Processor
Corsair Dominator Platinum 32GB (4x8GB) DDR3...
Shilohh's Build for Eric:

[Success] Robbies' Asus Sabertooth x79, i7-4930K, MSI GTX 780 Dual-Boot Hacktintosh
I post this in gratitude of all the help I was able to receive for my build issues by users on the forums both on the tonymacx86 website and on others, such as insanelymac.com, with the aims that it might help...
Here is what I have to work with:
RIVE w/BIOS 4304
64GM G. Skill RAM 8x8GB - curently, only 1x8GB stick inserted
2xGTX680 4GB Classified - currently both installed, but turned off the other GPU with the 4 PCIe lane switches.
Main HD will be an OWC pcie ssd.
Any other questions, please...
