If you have questions, feel free to ask!
I've got a build log in this forum: http://www.insanelym...final-pictures/
By the way, thanks PunkNugget for convincing me to finally build a hackintosh ;)
It's been quite a whule since then, but you and GermanyChris over in MacRumors gave me inspiration for the project!

Thanks for watching!

This is fantastic. You got my vote! It would be great to know what your GeekBench score is off of this machine... B)

Thanks!
Currently like any other stock 3770k as well, something around 13'500.
I haven't looked into overclocking yet, I simply didn't find any time :)
But I guess something around 18k should be possible.
