Hi! As you can see in my signature I have a good PC, great for OSX! but i have a problem! i have a problem because (I THINK) for this motherboard I can install it, osx 10.8... 

I have made ​​millions of tests

 

I'm here to ask you advice about the best motherboard for my configuration for 10.8.x (maybe also 10.9) :D

 

Thanks a lot!

Hello I notice you have the H77, the difference between the H77 and the Z77 is mainly that you cannot overclock on the H77.

 

I notice that you also have the i5 3570k, which might I add is a very nice chip. But you cannot overclock your cpu because you have an H77 motherboard, if you purchase a motherboard starting with Z then you can usually overclock in the bios.

 

For Hackintosh many people are using Z68s and P67s, but since the 3570k is very powerful, I would recommend one of these motherboards:

Depending on your budget and whether you would like to overclock or not is all up to you. I would suggest that if you would ever want to overclock to buy a Z77 or Z87. For an all-round great motherboard for hackintosh, overclocking, and price I would suggest going for an Asrock Z77, which is what I have.

GA-Z77 DS3H should be just fine. Most Gigabyte boards work without DSDT.

Hello, the GA-Z77 DS3H is a great motherboard. I am sorry could you elaborate on the onboard graphics and i5 that you are talking about.

I have that CPU in an Asus P8Z77-V Pro, running 10.8.5. Everything on this board works except the Wi-Fi, there is no OS X driver for it.
