First, huge THANK YOU to tonymacx86 and to everybody that's been so helpful to noobs like me. This is actually my second build, the first was a Gateway desktop that gave me all kinds of trouble (which I learned from a lot) and many sleepless nights. I decided to go with these components after I saw them from the compatible parts list that tonymacx86 released.

The only problem I had was the WD was not booting so I used the Hitachi as my boot drive and one (1) WD as storage or secondary. The other WD I use for WIN 7. I also followed this guide Dual Boot Windows 7 and OS X to dual boot.

I over clocked the cpu to 4.5GHz using this simple settings:
Multiplier: 45
load-line: level 7
vcore: 1.35
everything else is auto

I just updated to Lion 10.7.3, and everything seems to be working fine. I will be posting some benchmark results in the near future.

Thanks again to everybody in this site!
