Hello im New here :thumbup:
My good old G5 is broken due to leakage of CPU watercooler :|
And on my research wich new Mac ill buy the result was to build a Hackintosh :mrgreen:
Now im wondering if i can use a Intel Core i7-3820 on a
GA-Z77X-UD5H Motherboard and if (im pretty shure) not: Is there a Possibility to build a fully working Machine on a
GA-X79-UD5 Motherboard (With PWM working)

Other Question: Do the small Updates from Apple work ? (Itunes, Safari, OSX 10.8.xx)

I cant wait to order the Parts and having fun building a MacBeast :p

:Edit Wrong Forum ill post this in the right one. Sorry

Core i7-3820 is a Socket 2011 CPU and won't work on a Z77 motherboard like the GA-Z77X-UD5H. You need a X79 motherboard such as the GA-X79-UD5 or GA-X79-UP4.

After you installed Mountain Lion according to the installation methods here, the "small" Apple updates should work.
