Hi everyone,

I'm going to assemble a new PC in Mini-ITX form-factor with cleanest OS X install possible (vanilla).

I'm planning to buy:

Intel DH77DF Motherboard
Intel Core i5-3570K
8GB 1600Mhz Hynix RAM
1TB WD Caviar Green HDD

Is it a possible configuration? Does anybody use Intel DH77DF?

Thanks a lot

That board doesn't have a dsdt i would recommend going with a gigabyte board that has a dsdt as it has good compatiabilty and sleep support
check the database i think theres only two z77 boards right now

I was determined to make my hack as small, fast, and quiet as possible, so I used a DH77DF motherboard. The built-in PCI Express card slot allowed me to install the Broadcom BCM94322MC Wifi adapter. That combined with the built-in firewire meant I didn't need any add-in cards which allowed the height of the case to be limited to 7.3 cm. I used the Intel Core i5-3570K with Intel HD Graphics 4000 to avoid the added space and heat dissipation requirements of a video card.

Things that work correctly include sound, shutdown, DVI and HDMI video, ethernet, and Wifi. I did have to extract the DSDT and patch it which I have attached it to this post. Is there a more preferred way to share DSDTs?

I followed the standard UniBeast guide and used MultiBeast with the following options:
System Utilities
Drivers & Bootloaders -> Kexts & Enablers ->
Disk -> TRIM Enabler
Miscellaneous -> FakeSMC Plugins -> Motherboard Plugins
Miscellaneous -> FakeSMC Plugins -> HWMonitor Application
Miscellaneous -> FakeSMC
Miscellaneous -> Patched AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement -> OS X 10.7.4 Ivy Bridge
Network -> hnak's AppleIntelE1000e Ethernet

All the birdie said is that they would be hack friendly.
