    Everything is extremely quiet & work like a charm. :)

    The things I will changed are Power Supply and Microsoft Optical Wireless Mouse. The case is a bit cramped, but actually works quite well for what I have. I am still waiting postal delivery with my: fans (two NF-B9 PWM & one NF-P12 PWM), case dust filters and 32Gb DDR3 RAM Memory.

    The MSI bluetooth adapter identifies as OS X built-in (Cambridge Silicon Radio) so you can use the System Preferences pane for Bluetooth. No issues, for now!

    Apple keyboard A1016 hands down the best keyboard I've ever used!

    I built this machine from my preowned components and about $400. :mrgreen:

    Comments:

    I was using UniBeast and MultiBeast & KextBeast after instalation. 
Installation was finished with Intel HD4000 and than I just return ATI 6670 back, and everything was OK. Otherwise you will facing problem with white screen and nothing except moveable mouse pointer on your screen!

    Also, CPU cooler Cooler Master Hyper TX3 is return to store, and replace by Noctua Ultra Silent CPU Cooler Cooling NH-U9B SE2

    I also change org.chameleon.Boot.plist

    New settings are GraphicsEnabler=Yes and AtiConfig=Ipomoea

    This new settings are much better for my Sapphire Radeon

    EDIT: No.004 17.nov.2012.

    Sapphire HD6670 DDR5 has been sold. New graphics card in my H(M)ac is MSI GTX 650 PE OC.
    Because of that I edit org.chameleon.Boot.plist and change "GraphicsEnabler" from "Yes" to "No" and delete "AtiConfig=Ipomoea"

    Also, Chieftec 350W Power Supply is replaced by ThermalTake Purepower RX 600w.

    Respect.

    Why can't all people show the beauty of OS X running on a monitor?
