Stability is fine now, once I patched the cpuid's, no more app crashes. Yes I agree that AMD is not native to OSX, but it works for now until I start my next build. I just happened to have this system laying around and got bored with WIndows 7, so I dumped it and started this project...Yes the DVD/RW has issues especially in iTunes (hangs) I have ordered an Optiarc drive to replace it with, I had a Sony AD-7280S-0B 24x SATA installed, but had issues with that one as well, what drive do you suggest that is supported natively?

And no your are not trolling...just giving me an honest opinion.. :2cents:

I was afraid of that, and I suppose there is no "fix" for my nForce controller? Do you suggest an external drive via USB or is that out of the question? Just curious...

Okay I will see what I can do this weekend, not to many more angles left since it is such a small case. Thanks PunkNugget.
