Sorry, the specs info aren't define because I don't build the machine yet.

I'm looking for someone around here with experience in these models.

Any DSDT or SSDT.

I want to know things about the BIOS configuration, or if it can give some problem with SpeedStep, Sleep, Hibernation etc.

If it is better to install clover or chameleon, boot in UEFI or Legacy mode, if there is any problem with USB 3.0, or anything.

Thank you very much.

keep in mind that this kind of chipsets aren't supported by macOS natively and could be problematic, one user on the italian subforum tried to install on this machine and gave up!

Thank you, can you share a link of thee thread you mention?

I don't know why you say aren't supported, I understood that it is the same or similar as MacPro6,1.

MacPro6,1 are not Sandy Bridge-based, they're Ivy Bridge platforms.

 

Ok, I know it, it's similar, same chipset but not the same cpu generation.

I managed to get Yosemite and Sierra running on a Dell T5610. Working through a few issues with it.

Here is the write up so far
