Finaly!!!!! It works (EDIT: NOW IT WORKS WITH SPEEDSTEP!!!!)
some key points:
1.Mac OS X does not Suport internal graphics through an RGB port therefor this board CANNOT Suport internal graphics of any type (even 3000/4000) so get a card! (I got nvidia 210)
2.the board does not have bios flashback feature, and the board is not compatible with DPCIManager (flashrom) and so using a patched bios is impossible without an external flashrom programmer. If anyone gets this working, please tell me.

step 1: setup a unibeast drive
step 2: boot to BIOS(UEFI) and reset defaults (f5) go to advanced mode(f7) click advanced tab, SATA config, sata mode, set to AHCI (ESC and save changes /reset)
Step 3: hold f8 at splash screen and select unibeast drive, arrow to unibeast, type flag "PCIRootUID=0" and return
step 4: use disk utility to format drive and install OS. (it's ok if it says it failed)
step 5: boot to USB with f8 but this time select your hard drive (use PCIRootUID=0)
step 6: initialize OS by following on screen instructions
step 6.5: get DSDT View attachment DSDT.aml.zip and unzip and put on desktop (mods are welcome to add this to database)
step 7: get MultiBeast off flash drive and install the following:
User DSDT or DSDT free
Drivers->Audio->Realtek ALC8xx->without DSDT->ALC887/888->current
disk->IOAHCIBlockstorageinjector
misc->fakesmc
misc->fakesmc plugins(all)
Misc->ps/2 keyboard/mice
network->lnx2mac realtek
system->patched intelcpupowermanagement->10.8.x
Customization->SSDT->Sandy Bridge Core i5 (IT MADE MINE WORK even though its i3)

Step 8: select release version in the Realtek installer
Step 9: reboot and check that it works without flash drive.
step 10: replace the /extra/org.chameleon.boot.plist with this:View attachment org.chameleon.Boot.plist to enable no wait boot and SSDT

Sound: Works (Will not mute, but turning it all the way down is the same)
Drives show as internal: Works
Lan: Works
Internal graphics: Don't work
speedstep: The speedstep is using steps between 3.8 and 1.6 Ghz, the top is outside my CPU range, but it dosent seem to matter. sleep does not work, I hope I can use a patched bios in the future for that.

Thanks so much for this! Looking forward to getting mine working. But looks like your DSDT link is invalid.

By any chance, did you manged to enable sleep on this mobo before you moved to Gigabyte? It's "almost" works for me, I seeing the login screen, then it hangs up immediately :cry:
