Hi, thanks OP, the clover method worked for me after a lot of tries.

Some modifications:

Modify your final config.plist to fix kernel panic on shutdown/restart with 10.10.2:
Right after
<key>ACPI</key>
<dict>
add:
<dict>
<key>ResetAddress</key>
<string>0x64</string>
<key>ResetValue</key>
<string>0xFE</string>
</dict>


To fix audio, mount efi partition via terminal:

Then run this command:

Make sure you haven't modified the stock AppleHDA.kext

Thank you so much, Bro...
This was the best solution and it works perfectly.
All i had to do, was installing the Web Driver for GTX970 (Had to change the ID to Mac Pro 3,1)

Can anyone report very stable builds with this motherboard? I am still getting at least one kernel panic a day, usually on a wake from overnight sleep.

I tried the change suggested two posts above with the modification, but i'm still crashing at least once daily.

I would love some thoughts.

I have also built my Hackintosh following this clover installation guide. So first of all I have to say thank you to the OP! :clap:
Since building my machine (specs in profile) I had no to little problems with my configuration. To adamcanderson: I can say that my mobo is running realy good and stable all the time! Also TRIM for SSD and audio after sleep is working realy well. :thumbup:

how's your memory usage? i seem to have a leak where, throughout the day, my memory used steadily increases toward capacity. have you seen that?

Awesome write up, but I'm getting stuck here:

Currently using the following boot flags:

-x -v maxmem=4096 PCIRootUID=1 npci=0x2000

Any idea what's causing this?

My monitor is connected via DisplayPort. Should I still try connecting over HDMI?

I woult give it a shot. When it doesn't work try connecting your monitor over the DVI or HDMI of the motherboard and use the bootflag nv_disable=1 (this will disable your graphics card for one boot, try using this bootflag in several combinations with your other bootflags (always use -v so you can see where it gets stuck)). When this doesn't work try removing your graphics card and put it back in when your system is up and running.
