Looks like the GTX 670 has been discontinued on newegg, probably want to bump that link up to one of the other models.

I just did my first Hackintosh build, GA-Z87X-D3H, i7 4770, 16gb corsair RAM, GT640 running on Mountain Lion. I've managed to get it up and running. I installed Mountain Lion with Unibeast and afterwards ran Multibeast. Inititally I had issues with grey screen at startup and could only start using -x. Now It starts but I have a few fine tuning issues like system info displays the processor as 3.69Ghz and the ram as only 8gb. Has anyone else done a similar build?

Hey all,
For all future hackintosh-builders like me, you might consider this: OS X 10.8. might not be any more available from tomorrow on, so hurry up if you want to use it.
It is highly unlikely Mavericks will be released tomorrow. They will announce the date it will be available. That date could be the next day or two but I expect it to be available the following Tuesday.

The X79S-UP5 has been discontinued from Newegg. Just thought you might like to know so you can update the link should it be necessary.

Hi Tony, thnxs ! got my Hasswell i5 4570S running with Gigabyte z87-HD3, took a -x and then multibeast, but worked. I used a Trust Bluetooth 4.0 USB Adapter (Alternate.nl 18187, Retail) and it worked out of the box.

Hello

Sorry for my question if its stupid.. If i make a new pc by using the suggestions you have, then a MAC OS dvd will be possible to start and be installed normally in the new computer (except the some things you dont include, thunderbolt etc..)? Thanks in advance

Hi everyone.

How stable is the socket 2011 systems. Are they much harder and have more bugs?? Cant decide if I should build a the 2011 system or the next grade down. I know sleep mode is not a big deal to me.

Any help would be great.

Thanks
