The bad news is that the onboard codec on that motherboard is unsupported. You could try and get VoodooHDA working, but in my opinion it's not worth the effort. Instead, add an external USB sound device.

The good news is that those things are cheap and almost any of them will work with OS X. Here's an older thread with some suggestions of known working USB audio devices.

Thanks for the reply . Also besides the sound problem , there will be any others ?

The CustoMac will be used as home use , but it will still need to run the Adobe Suite .

Also my sound at the moment is thru my HDMI on the GTX 970.
