Succes: Z68X-UD3H-B3, i7-2600K-Intel HD 3000 - 10.7.2 (TUTORIAL)
So, I got my Machine working now, and it's goddamn perfect! Everything works like a charm.
(!This guide should help everyone with a HD 3000, but the Update helper is only needed for boards with Sandybridge!)
Mainboard: Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3
CPU: Intel i7-2600K
RAM: 8GB Kingston 1333MHz
Graphics: Intel HD3000
Harddisk: Seagate Barracuda 500GB
FANS: 2x 12cm (F12)
Alltogether: 476€ (about $650)
Here's how I did it:
0.Set Bios correct (check forum) + Upadte your BIOS (Dual-Bios of Gigabyte is pretty cool)
1.Copy an 10.6 Retail DVD to any external harddrive (I justed a 10.6.5, but not important)
2.Boot ext. Drive with iBoot
3.Format disk with MacOS-Journaled with Diskutility
3.Install Snow Leo withMinimum Settings.
4.Install Update Helper (you may have to be registerd on tonymac to download this)
6.Install the 10.6.8 Combo Update
8.Download 10.7 Lion from Appstore or whatever
9.Let the Downloaded dmg "prepatch" your system
10.Copy it with xMove to Second HDD Partition or USB-HDD
11.Install Chimera 1.5.4 via Multibeast on the Device used in 11.
12.Boot your drive from 11.
13.Should see full Graphics now for first time(also ok if not)
14.Install Lion on your 10.6.8 partition
15.Boot Lion (if not working correctly, boot in safemode ( enter -x as boot parameter)
16.Now the patching part
-Open Multibeast 4.0.3
-Install: UserDSDT(fond on tonymac)
-All System Utilities
-Kexts and Enablers:
-IOHACI BlockStorage Injector
-Miscellaneous(Not sure waht i did :/ )
-Realtek Gigabit ethernet 2.0.6 (If no new Network adapter is recognized,install
the Kext(only the Kext) again and again until it works(really works after 2-3
-Macbook Pro 8,1
17.Reboot (NP if still not working, reboot in safemode)
18.Install Mac 10.7.2 Update
Now it should be working correctly
Good luck guys, just ask if you have Questions

Post Thanks / Like
I'm having difficulties getting the 10.6.8 update to work.
I have a similar setup as you:
4 gb memory (the other 4 are sitting on the desk right now)
OCZ 120 gb SSD
I have successfully installed 10.6.3 and i'm having difficulty moving beyond it.
I'm guessing I have the bios right (you say check forum but I can't find anything)
after running the combo update for 10.6.8, and reboot I get a grey screen.
I can launch in safe mode but don't really know what to do next.
Hi, er, Nick ?^^
I'm not absolutely sure, but I think I started with a 10.6.5 retail DVD, but that shouldn't be relevant...
Sorry, I forgot to give a link to update helper...
Install this: Update helper (You may have to be registered on Tonymac), then REBOOT your pc and THEN install the 10.6.8 combo-Update (the order is important!)
This should fix the problem
About the BIOS:
It's basically setting the SATA-controller to AHCI-Mode and setting HPET(Power options) to 64-Bit mode
I think SATA should be alright so far, if it were not you wouldn't have been able to install the whole thing.
HPET is important for standby function, so check this if there are problems...
I hope I could help you, feel free to come back if there is further trouble, or just gimme a thanx

My old computer just died on me, so I stared the search for good new parts.
Found Z68X-UD3H-B3 and i7-2600K to be right about what I needed.
Searched the web for any OSX reports on this motherboard and found yours and thanks to you and your thread I bought both the motherboard and CPU.
Booted up my old OSX partition and to my surprise it started.
I then installed the the latest version of Chimera (1.8.0) on top of my old Chameleon.
Replaced all kext, dsdt.aml and SMBIOS.plist in /Extra/ with the once you wrote.
And the result is a fully working MAC. Even dual monitor is working!!! I have not been able to get this working on my last computer setup.
Thank you Nicolas2016
By the way, is your motherboard/CPU making i high pitched sound?
I turned off "C3/C6 State Support" in BIOS and it stopped the whining but maybe I should get a replacement.
And yet another by the way, is your speaker making a bang (like the sound of the needle dropping on a LP record) right before every sound output?
