Got my Gigabyte GA-X79-UD3 System working a few days ago, dead easy just followed the iBoot and MultiBeast guide, using the attached DSDT. Now running with Snow Leopard 10.6.8. Only issue was that I had to add the PCIRootUID=1 to get the install to complete, but a real breeze after that. Thanks to TonyMacX86.

Been running for several days now and not had a single issue, even when running a session with 68 tracks, and over a hundred plugins, including some of the the new AAX format.

This Fractal Design case is on one of the best and quietest cases I have ever used.

As of today, tonymacx86 and MacMan want you to know:
NOTE TO EARLY ADOPTERS: Power management isn't working yet on Socket 2011, so you'll still have to use NullCPUPowermanagement.kext with a DSDT. Because of that you won't be able to sleep the system and there is no speedstep functionality.

Yep this is PCI, it's works perfectly on Mac OSX. The chose of the X79 chipset means that PCI is supported natively by the chipset.

Geekbench gives it a 13542, which is pretty damn good. Holding up well, not had a single issue in weeks

EDIT: it does have 1 old PCI slot.

Are u sure is not PCIe X1 ? That board has no old PCI slots
Let me re check...
Can u list the specific model of those digi design cards?

Thanks!
