Thanks, I'm going to give this a shot over the next couple of days. I originally planned to install Yosemite, as I'm using this for music production and some of the software I use isn't compatible with El Capitan yet, but hopefully it won't be long until it is.Check this out:
I'm now on 10.11.1 and performance is actually up from 10.10.5!
I thkn there is a gap in the Unibeast installation techinque and the Clover way TonyMac is recommending. Can anyone clearify a little? I'm getting stuck in a boot loop after creating the clover installer.
EDIT 2015: Haswell-E support can be easily patched in Clover using config.plist. This site recommends Clover for X99/Haswell-E configurations.
Do you think I can follow and use these installation procedures with this X99 build?...
-Thanks in Advance.

Did you ever manage to install El Capitan on 5960?All I know is that I spent days trying to get a xeon working in my rock solid x79 board. For the x99 I went with the 5960x. It may seem like a couple tweaks and you're home with that setup, but unless you don't mind going solo and figuring out the custom kernel stuff I'd stay away from xeon in hackintoshes.
Just my 2 cents. I'd love to know if you get it working though. You should check out the 2696 v3 on eBay and geekbench scores, if you do go xeon. Was never officially released by Intel but it benchmarks close to the 2699 v3 for around 1500 bucks. 18 cores!!!
