Ok so first many thanks to the folks here at TonyMacx86 - MacMan, Tony, Toleda and PJALM - you guys rock!
So start off down load OS X 10.9 from App Store and follow guide for UniBeast install - see here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/374-unibeast-install-os-x-mavericks-any-supported-intel-based-pc.html
I prefer a clean install - however you can Migrate settings from time machine from Mountain Lion if you like
I use Clover as my boot loader so once I boot into the the OS for the first time I only select specific drivers from Multibeast. I will post the options for this board.
Once you log in for the first time here are the MultiBeast options I chose:

Audio: VooDooHDA 2.8.4
Network: Shailua's Atheros drivers
3rd Party Sata
Trim patch for 10.9
FakeSMC v.5.3.8.20
Hibernate Mode Desktop

Clover version 2236
UEFI Install
Install to ESP
Choose all themes
choose UEFI 64 bit drivers: DataHubDxe-64; EMUVariableUEFI-64; OSXAptioFixDrv-64
Install RC Scripts
Install Optional RC Scripts
Install Clover Preference Pane

Once you install make sure you create a config.plist by going to terminal and entering this code: /usr/local/bin/clover-genconfig >config.plist
You will then have to tweak it a little based on your system and preferences - see various Clover resources for "How To"
Install your Ivybridge SSDT and if you like a custom DSDT in EFI/Clover/ACPI/Patched

Reboot and you should be good to go! Everything works other than sleep on demand - however auto sleep and wake work just fine - which works for me.

Geekbench is 13,900 and iCloud, iMessage, Facetime, App Store all work great.

Again the only glitch I need to figure out is sleep on demand - but everything is working great and I can sleep based on Energy setting timer in preferences. Good luck this is a great board and really easy to get native powermangement, HDMI audio and everything else working great.

Cheers!
JB
Curious: why DataHubDxe-64 and EMUVariableUEFI-64? I have the Z77-DS3H rev. 1.0—should I be using that as well?
