Cool! I have a similar build to yours which is working great out of the box with only audio and network drivers needed via multibeast.
One thing that is driving me nuts is the Gigabit ethernet issue Im having. No matter what I try I cant get beyond 10MB/s. I have a Gigabit router and have tested with a Macbook Pro and a Win 7 machine, transferring files between those machines I get around 50MB/s max which I still think is slow but is much better than 10MB/s. Have you been able to enable Gigabit ethernet?
I have a Presonus Firebox Firewire audio interface that doesn't function without audio drop-outs using the onboard firewire port. For this reason I got one of the recommended Startech firewire PCIe cards but this causes the sleep/wake/shutdown/restart problems so its not ideal although the audio performance is without problems.
So you have no issues with audio drop-outs using the onboard firewire port?
Congrats on your great build. A very special thank you for the BIOS screen shots and walk-thru!!!!! It gave me the courage to edit my settings on my build - very similar to yours (see my sig). The 3770K really came alive with only minor tweaks!!!! So I have the core voltage setup for the stock value 3.5 Ghz. But I edited my turbo values all up to 44. My Geekbench scores went from 14,502 to 17,014!!! I also edited the ram speed to 1600 to match the hardware. Here is a link to my Geekbench results: http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench2/1379244

Enjoy your new hackintosh in good health!!
