I'm looking for feedback from anyone who uses the Gigabyte X99 UD4P E-ATX motherboard and if there were any setup issues to get their X99 up and running?

I would go for the UD4 but it has unfortunately been discontinued.

My plan is to use the Unibeast/Clover method

Many thanks

Im in the same position right now. UD4 isn't available anymore and I would like to tryout a build with the 5820k and the UD4.

Noodlez what did you do to get your build together? did you use an older UD4 in the end ?

Hi,

I managed to get a new UD4 X99 off amazon about 4 months ago, if I remember right it was a retailer based in Germany sold through Amazon.

I would have gone with the UD4P version as it's more up to date but it is E-ATX so it wasn't compatible with the Fractal Define R5 case which Id planned to get.

Once you've all your parts and finished the build here is the guide I followed to get up and running perfectly

Hi,

Yes I have seen many Asus X99 builds around that have successfully got everything up and running good, however I'm not sure which method/guide they used in particular to achieve this.
Apparently Gigabyte boards are easy to use with Hackintoshes from what I have heard

Thanks for the reply noodle and yeah, Malik's guide is it for me too! :thumbup:

Im based in germany aswell and found an old UD4 board version 1.0
you are using version 1.1 it seems, but I think malik used 1.0 too since he did his build in early 2015.
So I think it woudln't be a difference, would it ? :crazy:


@dystress: for me its the same reason to use the UD4: maliks guide!
I plan to use it with a i7 5820k for Audio Production with a firewire audiointerface

Yeah there should be no problem at all, just make sure that you update your Bios version to the latest before you install Yosemite or El Cap etc..
