Had a good read through this thread. I just want to clarify a few things with the folks who have had success on this motherboard and CPU.
I have just oredered the UD5H with a 3770K i7.
As I understand it, you do NOT need a DSDT of any kind when working with this board, nor do you need any Kexts?
My current setup is an EP45-DS3R - and I used DSDT which I believe has audio, graphics and various other fixes. I also use a patched AppleHDA.kext to get the onboard sound working. I used RealtekRTL81xx.kext from LION to get my network working. And the only other kext I use is FakeSMC.
My graphics card is a Geforce 9800GTX+ 512mb (not upgrading this). Which worked through DSDT.
So yea, are we saying that other than FakeSMC, this board will function 100% perfectly ( graphics, sound, network, time machine etc etc) ?
Or Will I need something for the graphics at least?
Advice and help appreciated. Thanks.
The motherboard and CPU combo will not require a modified DSDT, but kext are needed to enable the onboard sound, network, graphics etc. UNLESS they are already supported by Apple out of the box
. DSDT allows the OS to SEE the devices (sound, network, graphics etc.), but it does not automatically make them work under Mac OS WITHOUT the proper kext. What UD5H motherboard gives you is no need to have DSDT and Mac OS will recognize the devices (but you still need proper kext to have them working).
In my case I did not need to install any extra kext because I was not using the onboard sound and wire networks. I have external sound card and have an Apple Airport Extreme mini PCIe card for network. GTX 670 graphics card is also supported out of the box.
With your set up, you probabaly still need to install extra kext to enable onboard sound, network etc., but you most likely won't need DSDT.
can one of you guys tell me how to access John Cash's guide ? How can I get the permissions?
