  1. I have that mobo. Here's my setup: GA-X58A-UD5 Intel i7 920 12 GB RAM 320 GB Velociraptor Drive No overclocking When I first put this setup together, I wasn't paying attention, and so I thought I had an EX58. As such, I followed digital_dreamers instructions here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=185097 Using those instructions exactly, I was able to get everything up and running except for sound and sleep. Since then, I've tried various things to get both working but with no luck. Later, I read that Kakewalk http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=195248 was a good solution for this Mobo. So I took my main HD out and popped in a fresh one, then ran the SL install using the Kakewalk CD. I picked the GA-X58A-UD7 Mobo since the UD5 isn't on there. That was a VERY easy install, but once again the sound and sleep didn't work. As a fix, so I could use the computer, I bought a USB sound card and shut off sleep. Now I've got a fully working computer, that never goes to sleep.
  2. There are so many super smart people on this forum. Thanks for the great tutorials. After reading for a while, I decided to bite the bullet and build a hack pro. I went through the information I found on this forum, and decided to purchase the UD5 mobo. I'll post a full write up on the build (plus I video taped the whole thing if anyone is interested). There's just one problem that I can't resolve, and it looks so similar to many of the questions posted here. I can't get the Audio Out on the mobo to work. I'm seeing devices under system profiler, but nothing under Sound in sys prefs. Here's what I did: Hardware profile: GA X58A-UD5 + i7 920 1. I followed the instructions on http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=204010 to do the install. 2. I upgraded to 10.6.2 using Combo updater 3. I moved RealtekR1000SL.kext from Extra to System to get ethernet working. Here are all the things I tried, but the audio still does not work: 4. Tried using the HDAEnabler.kext and LegacyHDA.kext from the stock X58_Mobo_Patch_Installer 5. Tried using just LegacyHDA.kext from MODS in tutorial (#1 above) 6. Tried using #14 Audio Option A of page 1 of this thread 7. Tried using #14 Audio Option B of page 1 of this thread 8. Tried using only ALC889a.kext 9. Tried using only ALC889a.kext with modified info.plist 10. Confirmed that IOAudioFamily.kext is in S/L/E 11. Tried vanilla AppleHDA.kext and tried a modded one. I'm out of ideas and I was hoping someone could give me guidance. Where should I look next to resolve the problem?
