Hi pep-one, I used the .dmg on this machine. I've used software update on a NUC system, worked the same.


Cheers!

Been tracking the Cube's on E-Bay. After all the years still a sweet case. Good Luck.

Hey Ersterhernd

As i mentioned in your thread, i undertook my own Cube project using yours as inspiration - i seem to have everything working so far, however i have run into a few problems .

1. I cannot find a DSDT so im forced to go DSDTless
2. It is failing to read my 4TB 3.5" HDD - picks it up as 4TB but says that its a single 500gb parition and failed to be read? (in port1 6gbps)
3. Can't find a working AppleHDA.kext for onboard HDMI audio out?

I am currently on BIOS 0048.

I don't suppose you ran into any of these problems ? and if so; How were you able to rectify them?

Thanks a bunch mate, tried the kext you provided, seems to be the same as the ones i have used in that HDMI audio does not show up in system preferences however the line out works. i guess i will have to use it.

Other than that one small issue, The Cube is running amazing ! best hackintosh i've built to date :)
This motherboard is great everything just works, thanks so much for your tip to use it.

I'll be posting pics of my build soon so keep an eye out :)

Hi ersterhernd,
can I ask you how you connected the system fan to motherboard?
I have a single 92 mm Noctua fan at the bottom and I would add a 60 mm Noctua fan at the top of build, but I don't know how can I connect it to motherboard.
Thank you!

Hi pep_one, I used a simple fan splitter cable for the extra 60mm vent fan and the 92mm intake. I can't even remember where I ordered it from. The header on the board can handle the little added current of the 60.


Cheers!

May i ask why you didn't opt to use the Sys_Fan1 Header?

ive got my GEILD CPU cooler in the CPU_Fan1 header
and a 120mm fan in the Sys_Fan1 header
