I am looking for the Z77 motherboard, that would be the easiest to install Mac OS X Mountain Lion on and would be fully functional (audio, sleep/wake, etc..). My build is mostly oriented toward gaming and video editing. I want to install use Windows 7 on one SSD for gaming and then install and use OS X Mountain Lion.

GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-D3H LGA is another one to consider. No DSDT needed. Audio does not work out of the box. But it is as simple as one checkbox in Multibeast.


I like the fact that this MB has 4 Sata III and 6 USB 3.0. Since I work a lot with large image files, data transfer rate is usually my bottle neck. so the faster interfaces help.
