So I actually bought the 3930k LGA 2011 processor AND I also bought the ASUS P9X79 PRO with the Intel X79 chipset.

My plan was to eventually dual boot it; one logical drive Win7-64bit, and hack a second drive under SnowLeopard. Do you really think SnowLeopard won't support the Sandy Bridge-E processor or should I give it a try?

I can always wait to do this of course. My old computer finally gave up the ghost so I needed something and I figured I'd try and future-proof it a litte bit (at least for a little while anyway).

Any suggestions you guys have would be great. I'm a noob when it comes to building a hackintosh but have a fair amount of old DOS programming and system admin experience. :?

The 3930K and Asus P79X79 motherboards work great with Snow Leopard 10.6.8
Running stable at 4.4 gigs, Network and sound work, USB 3.0 and power management don't.

Thanks mickguz. This gives me hope and the courage to forge ahead. I get the processor in this coming mid-week and I plan to build as soon as I can. I'll keep you posted. If you have any tips or anything you learned worked or didn't work, let me know and I'll try and do it along those lines. I'll keep you guys posted on my progress. :)

I found an awesome guy who's diligently working on solving hackintosh problems for this exact configuration. He's still in the process of working out all the kinks (specifically USB3 and Power stuff) but he's on the path to solving most of them soon. His handle is maleorderbride.

Also, search under P9X79 and look for info on those who have attempted a hack. It's not perfect yet but some have made headway.

Keep me posted too on your failures/sucesses? I just got my new system built and am loading windows and a few apps on the x64 side. I'm going to start on the hacked disk soon.

Cheers,

Hi mrpromo,

This is exciting news, I have been sitting on the fence for too long, had been waiting for some 3930k success stories, looking forward to ordering up now, and reading your tut. Will be ordering this week.

Thanks a lot!
