hello all!!!! after countless hours and 3 days!!!!!!!@ of work i came to the conclusion that gigabyte boards suck!!! i literally returned 3 boards all with chipset z68 i just couldn't for the life of me get my video card displayed correctly in profiler. Anyway i decided to go with Asus. i bought the p8p67 pro b3 revision.. everything works except the on board bluetooth and thats maybe because i have it disabled in bios.. absolute charm to work with no issues.. multibeast had everything my card showed up instantly ive read about some people haveing issues with the lan multibeast blasted right through it ... lion is next i have installed 10.6.8 i'm ready to go... im soo freakin happy.... :headbang:



attempting lion right now!!!!

and .... what are you using for a dsdt? Did you patch your own? I didn't think the DSDT database here included Asus P67's but I could be dead wrong too.

Thanks,

Rick I didn't use a DSDT I just simply choose easybeast in Multibeast.

thanks for the info and the offer of help....trust me...when I start this build I'll be real annoying really really quickly.

By the way....although I've never used ATI, how do you think this would perform with 2 6870's?

Just curious .... many thanks.
