    MB: ASUS P5E
    CPU:Intel Q9550 @ 2.83 GHZ, 12 MB cache
    RAM: 4 GB OCZ, 2 x 2 GB.
    Video: Radeon 4890
    Sound: Supreme FX II
    Storage: OS drive is a Seagate 250 GB SATA, addtional 1 and 1.5 TB Seagate drives for data.
    PSU: Antec 1 KW modular
    Case, trusty old Antec 1080 Pro, big and heavy but lots of space.

    Old school rig, but serviceable.
    I used iBoot and Mulibeast and had it up and running over a weekend, though it took two installs to do it. Sound works, ethernet and video work, defaulted to my Asus 1920 x 1080 monitor's native resolution. Nice and fast, stable, get the occasional spinning beachball, but disappears quickly. My next project is to install my 2nd 4890 to get crossfire going. If anyone has any pointers, that'd be great. I can live without the 2nd 4980, but I had in my Win 7 setup, and two vid cards are sooooo much nicer.
    I can't get sleep to work either, but it's not on my priority list, not even my mac mini sleeps, too many bad experiences with sleep in the Windows world, so all my machines just run.
    I must confess though, even though OS X is much more efficient at using system resources than Windows ever was, it runs much better with a quad core and 4 GB of ram. I can just watch those activity monitor graphs light up.

    Cheers
    Hey Jon can you post a tutorial for your system for your tutorial sub forum? thx for sharing ;D

    Please look in the HCL for your mobo to check if it is compatible with OSX if it doesnt appear you can always try and report back

    Thanks icchansan, I have looked at HCl, and I can't find that motherboard. I may just grab the machine and try it. It is an H57 Express chipset

    This motherboard is from HP you cant buy it in a store, but look the 1st page in this thread for good references and take look in the HCL for the latest mobos with OSX support.

    I started a separate topic asking if anybody had had any luck building a Core i7 Sandybridge Hackintosh, and was referred to this sticky. So please forgive me if I'm being redundant, but does anybody out there know whether any Sandybridge mobos will work? All I can find in this thread is stuff pertaining to pre-Sandybridge Core i7s. Somebody gave me a Core i7 2600K for free, so naturally I have to buy a Sandybridge mobo. Should I just buy a Gigabyte mobo and hope for the best? Also, I'm a little unsure about how to use the HCL or this sticky as far as figuring out which graphics card to buy. Should I assume that if a graphics card is known to work with OS X and pre-Sandybridge mobos, it will also be OS X compatible when combined with a Sandybridge mobo and CPU? Or is it not that simple? I'm wanting a graphics card that's good for gaming, and hopefully not much more than $170.

    Thank you for any advice you can offer!

    hey mate I would go with the gigabyte and hope for the best... I did not even know there were mboards out for sandybridge??!?! what mboard exactly were you looking at?
    I have been out of the computer hardware loop for like 7 years since my last mega build I did, and now coming back to build another computer I am after building a hackintosh as I can always be dual booting... osx is what I need right now to use in my life, as I am doing alot of music production etc... so yeh I will try to help you as I go along, as I am also going for a sandybridge build.

    HDD: any SATA disc (smaller then 1TB)

    Total cost(i bought used parts): about 100$

    Fully working OOB USB, LAN and VESA(1024x768) at DVI. SOUND is NOT working, but i didnt try some special kexts - its just server, i dont need sound ...
    Intallation via iBoot Legacy, than used myHack standard installation.
    Update from 10.6.3 to 10.6.4 without problems. On 10.6.5 problems with USB - kernel panic(i tried to use USB kexts from 10.6.4, but not working for me)...
    I'm staying on 10.6.4 - its OK...
