I'm actually considering to stay on Mavericks as for now. It looks to me like there is in general more problem with this update than the previous ones, and I don't know if the updates considering new functions are worth the headache.

I got an old hdd lying around somewhere tho, maybe I will look for it and give it a try on it instead..

before you try the OS X Yosemite, i would recommend you using time machine make a backup first

I just restored my real mac + thunderbolt display from 10.10 to 10.9 using time machine yesterday

In Marvericks 10.9 the font blurry issue does not exist

In Yosemite 10.10 even I have zoom in the PDF in Preview, the text is still blurry, I think the apple development team only equipped with retina display, they so far still not notice the problem on non-retina display

Had no chance at all testing any Sleep Mode.

Installed Yosemite with Unibeast over my existing Mavericks, but after running Multibeast I got a Black Screen after booting up. Seems to be also after installing latest nVidia drivers (and even switch to OS X default driver)

Have the GA-Z77N with i3 3225 and GTX 650 (with NVAudio-1.0.dmg for HDMI Audio output as onboard is not working anymore after installing dedicated GPU)

With that config, no problems in Mavericks.

EDIT:
installed it on an external HDD and got it working with Multibeast, also compared my running Yosemite org.chameleon.boot.plist with my working Mavericks one (NVAudio-1.0.dmg for HDMI Audio output also working in Yosemite)

What I'm going to do now:
  • Backup my Mavericks Partition -> DONE
  • Delete TrimEnabler and nVidia Drivers -> DONE
  • copying my org.chameleon.boot.plist from Yosemite to Mavericks -> DONE (still booting fine)

  • Updating to Yosemite via Unibeast
  • run latest Multibeast
  • install NVAudio for HDMI Sound

worked fine the first time, after installing the latest updates (iPhoto, Safari) through the AppStore -> Black Screen on boot

Went back to Mavericks!

I've been having issues with the audio out (Not HDMI). I have to keep re-installing the audio drivers because each time i reboot the machine the audio stops working. Does anyone have a fix for this? Other than that I haven't stumbled across any other issues.

Hi Guys, you can test this package, I just finished the installation on the GA-Z77N-WiFi yesterday.

http://www.share-online.biz/dl/F6V2N9EN11Z

Working:

- Dual Monitor Gfx with QE/CI
- ALC892 Audio
- USB 3.0
- Atheros 9285 WLAN

- Issues:

- Very low Xbench GUI speed
- Standby mode not tested
- original WLAN card not supported
- HDMI and Digital audio output not tested (I don't need it)

The archive contains some infos, the HD4000 property string list and a small tool called 'cDock'. I'm using it to bring back the 3D dock.

Last problem: The GUI Speed in Xbench is just about 59, while on Snow Lopard it's 550 without any graphics drivers. But that doesn't mean that Yosemite runs in Slow Motion. Audio: You have to set the audio output to 'Internal Speakers'.

Greets, naquaada.
