  1. Hi everyone. I wrote up a guide, please visit. www.tipsotto.blogspot.com Good Luck
  2. Hi guys. Anyone tried 10.6.5? If it works, is there any fixes we should do after an update like this? Like maybe reinstalling AppleHDA.kext? Cuz I'm nt updating to 10.6.5 fearing it'll break my great install here. Also without any additional work I'm getting cinebench 23.51fps on my MSI GTX 260. Any thoughts? Is that good? And any idea about the next 10.7 Lion? You think our board will be supported by the great community here? I'm willing to help as much as my tech knowledge permits Also, when I open a game, I get a weird screen with just colored pixels and I have to click the mouse constantly for a couple seconds to pass it, weird. If I don't sometimes I will just hear the game work but I can't see anything, just black, unless I click the mouse constantly as soon as the game opens. Thanks guys in advance.
  3. I made a complete guide on installing Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard on a hackintosh. And Dual booting Windows 7. Using Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R rev 2.0 and the Core i7 930 CPU. You can find it at www.tipsotto.blogspot.com HowTo Guide was possible by the help of numerous people here on InsanelyMac Forums and elsewhere. I just brought together the info from various sources and added a few things I found worked great. It is very easy and comprehensive. Hope you enjoy! Rate using above Poll! Leave Comments on the blog or email me if you have any questions
  4. I am using the same mobo and cpu and Corsair H50... CPU Temp always around 33-38. how about you? No LEDs are flashing so i assume NB temp is normal. By the way for the GTX 260 is there any special drivers I should install? Im not having any problems with it...I watch 1080p vids just fine...
  5. Thanks a lot for the reassurance. It definitely helps hehe. Would you happen to know which tutorial or guide you used to build it? And are you using it with 10.6.4? Thank you very much again.
  6. I opened this topic because of the lack I found of centralized informationand support for the Gigabyte-X58A-UD5 Motherboard 3.0 USB 6 GB/s SATA. Who ever has this mobo or is intending on buying it...please share your knowledge with all of us so we can build better support for it, not just for me but for alot of people who have bought it and are scattered all over the place asking questions about it without satisfactory answers. This is my current planned build: Gigabyte-X58A-UD5 Motherboard Core-i7 930 MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX260 Graphics Card (Already Bought) G.Skill 6 GB RAM @1600 Please provide thoughts on ANY of the parts above or YOUR own builds that include a Gigabyte-X58A-UD5 Motherboard. Through my searches I found some had success with the KakeWalk method posted here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=195248 I don't want to buy this board with a blind eye, and I'm sure none of you either. So we can all try to work together to get the info we need and provide it to others. I will update this Topic with my findings and if I do go with the board, I will post how it went. Thanks in Advance to all who will contribute. Elaborate....
  7. Nice app..thanks will try it out
  8. To Chiddy 22 I believe the reason your usb method might not be working correctly is that the usb drive has to be formatted in Mac Jornaled Extended and have a GUID partitioning table not MBR. See if that works.
