Fantastic, I guess the only thing holding me back now, is the audio situation. Being that I do audio production that's kind of an important feature. I have a music interface currently but I'd like the audio to function w/o it. I've seen in other x99 Hack builds they use a USB Audio adapter. Would you recommend to just do that or would it be better to use your optional Audio config?
To me the onboard audio is splendid as long you use SPDIF or the HDMI output of the GPU. I recommend to use the clover-ALC configuration. The Volume control of the HDMI-exit on Mac needs a workaround for any audio card. You can use the basic Soundflower or the sophisticated Audio Hijack which provides many more audio features in addition. To control the HDMI Volume with your keyboard will need another workaround.
