Article: Building a CustoMac: Buyer's Guide February 2013

Hi,
I have a
Gigabyte GA-Z77-DS3H and EVGA GTX 650 garphics card.
I can only place 8 gb of memmory in my system because I have 2 8 gb memory modules.
How can I setup my gigabyte bios. I can't find the HPET 64 bit option in the bios. The bios is from september 2012.
I hope you can help me because I want to built a mac compatible pc.
Regard

hi its my first time guy a system for a hackintosh and i was wondering how strict are the limitations on the parts when buying, i know motherboard cpu and that have to be specific for compatibility but can any cooling units be used, ram and ssd's or do some ssd's, ram etc cause compatibility issues. also is there a reason for the ram capped at 16 gig for 1155 sockets?

Anyone who is savvy to GPUs know which (if any) of the Buyer's Guide graphics cards has a mini-display port? I don't want to have to use DP> mini-DP adapter as there are some issues with auto-power on/off with Cinema Display

This is my second hackintosh rig that I'm building. I am running into a Kernel Panic at the first sign of the apple logo, with the words "there should be 4 threads, but only found 5" at the top of the screen. I've googled the problem and tried different combos of UEFI settings including:

HPET enabled
AHCI enabled
Wake on Lan disabled

I've also tried booting the installer with: Graphicsenabler=no PCIRootUID=0 -x -v ...none of which helped.

I've tried removing the graphics card and running from the integrated GPU.

I am using the following hardware:
Gigabyte Z77-UD5H
Intel Core i5-3570K
8GB Corsair DD3 1600
EVGA GTX 650 2048GB

Any help would be appreciated!
