    Question The Easiest Intel Hackintosh Install w/ DDR3 Memory

    Hey everyone,
    I am wanting to install a vanilla copy of Snow Leopard with DDR3 Memory and I am looking for the easiest install method possible. What is the best solution out there?

    I have come across Install Snow Leopard on Your Hackintosh PC, No Hacking Required - Hackintosh - Lifehacker which appears to be the easiest install method out there but it requires the GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P and this motherboard is currently out of stock - plus it doesn't support DDR3 Memory.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks alot in advance!
    Warmest Regards,

    Hi there,
    Welcome.
    I have one question for you then. Why does it have to be DDR3? If that board is out of stock then other boards may be cheaper and serve the same purpose?
    Best Regards,

    It doesn't need to be DDR3.. You're right, I can get good speed with DDR2 and save money too. Do you know any motherboards in stock that are 100% compatible with Snow Leopard and really easy to install?

    Hi there,
    The reason I questioned earlier is just because there seems to be no noticeable performance gain, IMHO. I got 4GB of PNY Performance series DDR2 800, 4-4-4-12, for $90.00 which might be OCed to 1600. My C2 Quad 2.66 Ghz is OCed to 3.2 Ghz nicely (some people run it at 4 Ghz) and I've never seen my RAM passed the 1066 Mhz mark.
    One of the main difference between 43 and 45 chipsets is just the south bridge, ICH10 vs. ICH10R respectively (with and without RAID controller, I think).
    All of those series board are mostly compatible with OSX (100% then you're looking at the "real" mac).
    The guide that you post is among one of the best and yet fairly easy. You could use that guide and modify a few steps here and there for application to its board family in case you don't have the exact board.
    IMHO, while that is among the best, it is still not the best solution in term of performance, upgradability, stability. I would reserve that for the mod BIOS method.
    Regards,
