  7. I know, you're probably wondering "why is he posting this here?" It's because of the OSX86 compatible motherboard. Specs include: Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3P Pentium E2180 (Dual Core @ 2.0 GHz) Dual Channel 1GB RAM 80GB SATA II Hard Drive 3 additional NICs for a total of 5 ports EAH5450 Silent Video Card CD-RW Drive 350W PSU Cooler Master ATX case You could buy it for pfSense but it could go the other way if you'd like. Thanks for looking! http://www.ebay.com/itm/252090819691

  9. Hey everyone! I just wanted to inform those here from the U.S. that I am selling an hp pavilion dv3510nr laptop on ebay. The reason I'm posting it here is because I made this machine a hackintosh a while back and would like it if another fellow insanelymac member got their hands on it. The mods that I made were: modified the BIOS to remove the blacklisted wifi cards added a compatible Dell WLAN card with Bluetooth for full functionality in OS X If you are interested, please visit my posting on ebay and make a bid. Thanks! http://www.ebay.com/itm/251400984729 *Update - new price*

    HD4000 full acceleration for 10.8 / 10.7.5

    I'll try and help but it'll take a few days. I'm juggling two systems and that one is on the back burner for now. I could share my DSDT with the HDMI audio patch (z77x-ud5h) but we'd need to figure out the rest. While I'm commenting here, what's with yurick's post on page 5... http://www.insanelym...80#entry1856310 Has anyone tested that out yet? It was a random post and no one really acknowledged it.
  11. Well my update to share is that I have the build up-and-running but it sounds like I'll need more configuring in order to get HDMI audio out of this board.
  12. Yeah I have. I went ahead and purchased a GA-Z77X-UD5H-WIFI board. I'm upgrading an existing build so this is will be going into my Silverstone LC-13-B case. For the CPU, I'm committing to the i7-3770S so once the funds are in place, the fun begins!
  13. Yes, it is. I'm most likely going to do what you recommended here and just use the new board + iGPU and then ditch the 9600GT. I'll work to get HDMI audio out from the main board. No, none whatsoever. I think the HD4000 should be sufficient. Sometime down the road I may upgrade the GPU.
  14. Mr. D, Thanks so much for your input. I should have specified earlier that the 9600GT does have a HDMI port on it. So I'm taking it that it will have HDMI audio pass-through. I was reading up on it on this the following link -- http://www.pcstats.c...?articleID=2384. It sounds like I'll need a SP/DIF jumper though to achieve this. As a side note, I will be getting a HD4000 capable processor as a backup solution for the graphics. Yes, it currently does now. I have an optical out to the receiver and then video is DVI-to-HDMI from the 9600GT to the receiver. My understanding of the drawback is that the bandwidth for the optical link is only 6 channel (5.1) and i'm looking for 8 channel (7.1). If I can get pass-through working on the 9600GT then I may get somewhere.
  15. Thanks Mr D! My priority for this build is 7.1 audio. My receiver is only a few years old but supports the HDMI 1.3 spec. It supports TrueHD and MasterAudio so I should be fine. I'm trying to keep everything HDMI if possible. I went ahead and bought a motherboard but I'm not sure what I'll do about the video. I might be able to get by with the HD4000 graphics for now. I will say though that I didn't know about HDMI audio from the video card until your post. If that's the case, I might just reuse my 9600GT if I can manage to get HDMI audio working off the of the motherboard. My fallback then would be the HD4000. Does that sound like a good idea or are there certain cards I should investigate for the HDMI audio?
