I use FW800 with my 2nd gen Drobo and a camcorder. I think FW is more prevalent then you think. Plus TB is not hot swappable on non Mac hardware so having to reboot to plug in the adapter is not ideal.

I'm not new to Mac at all, but I'm just going from my personal experience. If you need something 100% reliable, go with a real Mac IMO. If you're a pro, a couple thousand shouldn't matter. All I'm saying is that most users don't need it, and eliminating it would reduce the cost, but it's too late already...


If you're a pro, a couple thousand shouldn't matter? Really? So you rather buy a Mac then spend $1 more on a motherboard that has Firewire on it.

A Hack is just as stable as a real mac.

I can confirm this by first hand experience. And i'll say more: nowadays, a hack assembled from compatible parts is more stable and reliable than a Windows 8 installation on the same hardware (also first hand experience).

Sorry guys but I'll have to disagree if nothing more because of the fact that nothing guarantees Apple won't block us off tomorrow. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big hack fan: I've built a half dozen, and some that aren't even mine but I trust enough to function for technological illeterates.

I'm also not saying it's a big deal, it doesn't cost much to implement, I'm sure, but I'm also a minimalist, it's just my personal preference...

//endrant, let's stay on topic.

...(all other operating systems are {censored}, IMO, when compared with OS X).


Very personal opinion. There are things you can do very easily on Windows that on Mac are just a hassle. And also the other way round. The OS itself is pretty much unimportant. The applications are what matters...

And the person in front of the screen... IMO

This mobo probably is as stable as a real mac, far from all hackmacs are though Im afraid. Id say you max get 95% functionality out of hackmac in general.

Same here. If you search carefully and buy fully compatible hardware you'll have zero problems.

Indeed. I take my time to understand the system then address all the DSDT and kexts needs.

I see this MB in my future for a new rack mounted recording box....

That is why I may be asking you for advice if and when my nForce chipset MOBO dies or the latest version of OS X requires a MacPro or iMac model in SMBIOS that is incompatible with my MOBOs CPU slot version.......

Although I may not recover from having a Intel chipset MOBO that works 100% with OS X........I am now so used to (and have enjoyed) getting my nForce chipset MOBO to work almost 100% (working sleep/wake never achieved since 10.5.6 despite iLeopod's valiant efforts with his 680i MOBO) with each successive OS X version from Leopard onwards......

im sure you will all agree that it is Very important. for all building a Hackintosh to do extensive research before first.
as at some point you with have to compromise on something
ie. the motherboard you wish to use as unsupported sound chip
or internet chip
so you have to change you choose a little.
this mother board should make that issue easier for ppl
i will let you know when i receive mine
