do you know if your motherboard will support Intel i5-2400 (2nd generation) @ 3.10GHz. i have the same motherboard and wandering if i should buy intel i3 (3rd generation) processor, or should i go with my i5. i don't care about speed, its just i wanted to save as much as i can on this build. :beachball:

i5-2400 will give you more troubles for sure. It has hd 2000 and it isn't supported. So at least you will need to buy a graphic card!

Updated to 10.8.3 from AppleStore with no problems.

But now my hd4000 is recognized at 768mb.
In sytem profiler - sata information it went from "Unknown drivers" to "Intel 7 series Chipset"

The problem:
Mouse skips/jumps!! Is really annoying...

EDIT: Initially I thought was something related with my wireless logitech. Now I realize it isn't! If you don't have any ethernet cable connected your mouse is total jumpy/irratic/stutter!

On usb 2.0 on motherboard make your mouse horrible!

EDIT2: Connect it on front panel usb from case and it works with no issues, even with no delay when wake from sleep or boot.
