No idea if you've had any luck yourself but I installed 10.8.5 today on my P5B-E (with same Core 2 Duo 6300 too!) using #####.


Important thing is to make sure that along with the EasyBest option, you select Customization>Boot Options>PCI Root ID Fix.


The attached is what I used to get networking - probably the same file as available here:


but not sure where I got it from!


Now to find a working driver for the ADI 1988 audio!

        <key>Kernel Flags</key>


Somewhere in your org.chameleon.Boot.plist file.
