Look at this blog for Asus x79 motherboard DSDT. This is my blog so if you have any questions just ask.

As for the 690 I do not think any support will be out for that with in this year or next.

Sound card will not work.

Pioneer drives can cause sleep issues. Sony and Samsung have seem to be the best and LiteOn also seem to be working fine.

No SSD?

NVIDIA 6xx cards will get native support in Mountain Lion or Lion 10.7.5. If you want it now, you can try this, but it's buggy: http://www.macbreake...-os-x-lion.html
EDIT: Yeah, I don't think the 690 will work.
