This is one of the first example builds that we posted over at the old blog, and quite a few user builds in the forum are based on it. The CustoMac Pro 2010 was a direct (ish) comparison with the Mac Pro of the day. It's running Yosemite great, although bootup is a bit slow due to the Award BIOS. This is also the build with the infamous Gigabyte Radeon HD 5770 'Batmobile' graphics card. It's also showing its age, but runs perfectly stable.
For post installation, use MultiBeast's UserDSDT with the DSDT from the DSDT Database, and for audio, network, bootloader, and customization. For the ATI card, you can use GraphicsEnabler=Yes or No. NOTE: For OS X Yosemite, X58 and 6 Series AWARD BIOS systems (including this one) require 10.9.5 AppleACPIPlatform Rollback.
