    I was not paying attention to the details in the pics in COBOs download file.
    Hmmm, I think I may have found a solution for the sound fix:
    How to Build a Hackintosh with Snow Leopard, Start to Finish

    Scroll down almost to the very bottom of the page and look for "A Few Final Tweaks". You can also do a search on the page for "ALC889.Fix.kext".

    This method requires a Kext Utility and an audio .kext download. However, maybe this kext is already added into the UD3P v3 auto installer??

    Either way, it's at least worth a shot! Good luck!

    UPDATE: it may also be ALC888.kext that you are after for the onboard sound fix for the UD3L motherboard.

    Does sleep work on your machine?

    Also, does the onboard LAN on the UD3L work out of the box? Or did you have to make some tweaks?

    Any update on this? Sound for the still running Gigabyte UD3L board? I ordered mine up yesterday.

    I'm also wondering if it's worth it to overclock the Q8400 on this motherboard? Has anybody done this (with stock cooling or aftermarket cooling) and what speeds did they get?

    LAN works out of the box using COBOs method. Just make sure it is enabled in BIOS. I didn't bother tinkering with sound but I did order the sound card butt probably won't use it. I plugged in a set of USB speakers and they worked without any special steps; that's good enough for me. Overclocking is a new thing to me, so I really have no answer to overclocking this chip. I'm reading up on suggestions for mine though. I am currently running stock 2.83 GhzX4 on my Q9550. I plan on adding a Firewire 800 card and front panel USB.

    Also, I had trouble booting from the hard drive after the installation. The EP45UD3P file installed fine but my machine won't start up from the hard drive. I have to boot from the USB and access my hard drive from there. I'm using it this way until I find a remedy. Otherwise, it is GREAT.

    I added a temperature monitoring panel with LCD display which is pretty cool. It monitors 4 channels. It has fan controls too but I'm not using that feature since I have the Acrtic Cooler Pro being controlled by the MOBO. The machine runs pretty quiet compared to other PC builds I have done.

    Let me know if you are able to boot from the hard drive when your build is done.

    NOTE: Make sure you have USB keyboard and mouse; you won't be able to use PS2s.

    I have the EP43-UD3L which is mostly the same EP43/45 series with minor differences.
    1. With Q8400 (or similar), the stock fan is not good, so whether it's overclocking or not, it should have after market fan (just a reasonable, good quality one is sufficient).
    2. People successfully Oc'ed it from 2.66 to 4.0 Ghz, but that took quite a few tweaking plus other components/cooling solution.
    3. My Q8400 is running at 3.2 Ghz with just one simple adjustment, and it's very stable and fast, as many people are doing it with just cheap/upgrade cooling fan.
    From stock speed, 2.66 Ghz (333 Mhz system bus x 8.0 multiplier), the system bus speed is adjust to 400 Mhz in BIOS. So, 400x8.0=3.2 Ghz and that is much faster without much heat added to the CPU and board while the performance is increased significantly. Also note that system RAM speed, 400x2=800 Mhz, is well within DDR2 capacity.
    4. My board also has a MOD/Mac BIOS, all component are working OOTB, as all fixes/patches/DSDT are integrated into it. It can install and get retail SL up and running with just one single kext, FakeSMC, for BIOS 0.7m, second release version.
    5. As for compatibility with OS's, in term of Mod BIOS and OC'ed, my system is multi-booting to SL 10.6.4, Leopard 10.5.8, iDeneb 10.5.8 (all with latest update directly from Apple via Software Updater), along with WinXP, Win7, Unbutu x32 and x64, Mandriva Linux x32 and x64.
    As proving for system performance, it's dual running SL x64 with Parallel Windows7, as virtual and integrated OS within SL environment.

    From stock speed, 2.66 Ghz (333 Mhz system bus x 8.5 multiplier), the system bus speed is adjust to 400 Mhz in BIOS. So, 400x8.5=3.2 Ghz and that is much faster without much heat added to the CPU and board while the performance is increased significantly. Also note that system RAM speed, 400x2=800 Mhz, is well within DDR2 capacity.

    @RATVN: I wonder if you would share with me the method you used to to your installation? I have the EP45 board with Q9550 (not OC'd) and arctic cooler running 4GB memory. I used the method in this thread and have had success up until it comes to booting from the hard drive. When I try to install the EP45UD3L.zip, it installs successfully. Also, my system does not want to allow dual boot with XP 64 bit. During the initial installation, XP64 gives me a blue screen with a warning of some sort. Could it be that I'm using more than a TB hard drive? Could it be that I need to update my BIOS? How can I confirm which is my BIOS? I think it is v7.

    Update: It is working properly now with the exception of audio. Would like to learn the OC for the Q9550

    later plans: OC the Q9550

    Yes, certainly.
    1. As for installation, COBO method is excellent. My install is just slightly different due to the advantage of modded BIOS, so there are steps modified/omitted.
    2. Keyboard/mouse should work with correct PS2 driver/kext.
    3. Should not have problem with HDD booting if Chameleon is installed properly.
    4. Sorry for the CPU multiplier mis-quote, for Q8400 it is 8.0 not 8.5. Correction made
    5. There are several audio kext for the onboard sound, and it depends on SL version/running mode.
    6. For WindowsXP, SATA mode needed to be enabled in Windows registry.

    Up and running!! Sound is still sketchy but my solution is a USB speaker set up. Good luck with your build.
