Hey there, so i finally made my first build ever. I'm really interested on developing iOS apps, so i need to use Xcode for this matter and don't want to spent a bunch of money on a Mac. Since Mac OS will not be my first OS, i build the system with performance and reliability on mind, and, because i also love gaming, i tried the Z97 series of Gigabyte and the new processor of Intel the i7-4790K. The graphics card are decent in terms of money/performance.
By now i have made the installation of Mavericks. I used UniBeast to make a boot USB and use Mavericks 10.9.4. Also, I was reading the forum before installing everything, and I know that can be a little problematic to be an early adopter. When installed I used MultiBeast to install the "drivers", i will post the specific options that i choose, by now i just made the Ethernet port works by Atheros killer driver, sound are not working at all but i'll working on it, i'll update the kext or methods if i found it to make everything runs, also graphics seems to be a little laggy, i don't know what to do there, suggestion are welcome.
For MultiBeast, I choose these options:
I was having issues at boot, and every time i need to start with -x flag, but researching a little i found that disabling Internal Graphics at bios may it'll solve the problem, and yep, that was so useful, also i disabled vT-D and choose Default Settings.
Now it's running without any problem, audio, ethernet, graphics are working great, the Radeon R9 280x was detected as Radeon 7xxx Series and don't have to use any kext, here is the info on "about this mac"
Results from Ungine Heaven for Radeon R9 280x
Thank to Tonymacx86 and to the community for all the useful information.
