I e-mailed the sales department with a few simple questions but I have yet to receive a reply from them. Weeks have past since but still. No word from them.

 

Same here: simple question, no answer.

ok just to information

parts list i have for this build

CASE: Akasa 62 eclipse. the reason im using this case it as great air flow maked of aluminium Stainless motherboard tray that slides out

i have mounted a thermochill 120mm rad on the inside of the motherboard tray and made a bracket for the d5 water pump to fix to the same tray

at the front. a small res will sit on top of the pump. i will be using a sapphire vaperX5770 graphics card

the idea is that the complete build can be all pulled out on the motherboard tray. (if i also use ssds and put them also on the motherboard tray)

i have two wd 150 Raptor drives i could use. 600 watt psu.

just need cpu and memory. and the motherboard in june

I thought this topic is about a board that is very close to hit the market, not a place where people discuss private stuff(and yes PM or email is private!)

But I may be wrong, my bad.

 

Now back to topic, I know some have many questions, on some we answered, rest will find an answer after the board is released.

Hope you guys understand that some stuff must remain private till certain point

@BALDY_MAN - no objection to you talking about components at all. We encourage builds and system builders to configure machines and push the envelope. The entire community learns this way. I don't think I stated anything about your components, sorry if it was misconstrued.

King, don't take offense on what i'm about to say, but these "should-be-private" posts are from Quo customers (de facto or potential) that are exercising their justified right to publicly complain about a treatment they feel inappropriate (notice that i'm taking no sides here, just stating facts). If you can speak from Quo's side and feel the complaints are unjustified, let us all know about your points of view about these.

 

All the best!

Hi Guys,

I am still interested in this board but it may become difficult to invest in it with haswell right on its heels. We will have to see how that plays out and what haswell board compatibility and features look like. My main question, and one that would probably push me over the edge into ordering a few of these boards for my DIT work is if thunderbolt hot-swap is working in OS X. I had asked this via email to QUO directly earlier on, and was told that was something they planned to have working but it wasn't working yet. That was several weeks ago and i am wondering if you guys can tell me if this is working now or if you are confident it will work.

Thanks,

g\

Please let me state im no complaining about the june delivery of my pledged motherboard

i quite looking forward to building it and testing it all out

and like we all do when getting enthused about a new build we say (IE: im expecting the waterblock next week.ect ect)

when i expect something from what ive been told.

why shouldn't i share with like minded ppl

its not a big deal and we all do it. sites like this run on shearing information will tell you more when its up and running some time in june

Not at all, but you are wrong, IMHO...

We all here use nick's, there is no way to track who is who and what mail address he/she used if ever used or ever mailed... This isn't QUO support forum(that will come) but a topic where we discuss the board.

I feel inappropriate to deal with something we don't know, or can't know and state that is right, for all sides.

Lets just stay on things that we know, the board is ready to launch, answer what we can answer about it and make people happy, customers or not. :)

There was a message sent out via Kickstarter the other day. Problems with the board supplier, but everything is still coming. Air mail likely to ship next week.

The case is a old Akasa  62 eclipse

Swiftec waterpump 120 Thorochill rad a cut down and rethreaded res tube

the plan is to mount everything on the slide out motherboard tray.

this is no modding thread ...

 

There is a Public kickstarter update with unboxing video. Looks like the FW800 backplate is not included :-(

The QUO site has a kickstarter page with the evolution of the parts availability.

The "brackets" entry is not checked for the moment so we can expect them to be provided with the boards, once received.

 

My opinion only, I do not have any more info than you.

There is a comment on that post that the backplate is optional.(not confirmed yet)

@subxero

The article is published in 2009 may 29. It's 2013 now. AFAIK QUO, on their site does not mention OS X as target OS to install on the product. QUO should have no problems with Apple as long as OS X is mentioned in any of the official papers/information. Perhaps they even should make an official statement on the subject with explanation what OSs are officially supported. We all know that OS X officially can only run on Macs. :)

      Ciao a tutti.
      dopo aver installato High Sierra il pc non può avviarsi dall'SSD mostrandomi la schermata nera che dice di scegliere il boot. facendo partire il pc con l'USB inserita, da dove ho installato il tutto, mi viene mostrata schermata di scelta dove posso effettivamente fare partire osx appena installato dal ssd ma con una lentezza mostruosa!. se provo con la chiavetta scollegata stessa schermata nera con la scelta del boot. inutile aggiungere che ho cercato di cambiare l'ordine di avvio dal BIOS, aggiornato il BIOS, ma senza successo. l'ssd funziona perché dopo ho installato da questo stesso anche linux o windows tranquillamente
      cosa posso fare? grazie a tutti

      Hello guys.
      This is not my first hackintosh, but this will be the first time to create a hackintosh with thunderbolt.
      First of all, i have read some info about MoBos with Thunderbolt, but im a bit confused.
      I need to create a working hackintosh with Thunderbolt 2/3 .
       
      At this moment i know that we got 2 options (Correct me if im wrong),
      -we can get one MoBo and ad a Pcie Card with thunderbolt (only if the chipset is compatible)
      -we can get one MoBo with thunderbolt integrated via USB-C connectors (like the new Macbook Pro)
       
      What are the possible MoBos that have integrated Thunderbolt vía USB (or directly thundelbolt ports)?
      I have read a lot of buyers guides from some webs , but a lot of that MoBos with thunderbolt enabled, are "discontinued" or without stock
      Should we only choose Gigabyte MoBos? 
       
      I Have been too looking at Gigabyte website, and seems that the Chipset Z170 its the only one with Thunderbolt (vía USB-C)
      ports.
       
      Could you help me with these please?
       
      Thanks You So Much!

      Hello.
       
      It's been about 3 or 4 years since I built my first, and so far only hackingtosh. I did so fallowing a guide written by good guy ^Andy^, witch came with hardware recommendations. I now feel it's time for me to upgrade to a faster system to keep up with heavier work loads. I'm strongly considering building a hackingtosh around the new i7-6700K Skylake processor, but I haven't come across guides for  this type of processor. I was wondering if any of you could recommend me a motherboard that's compatible and that won't become a hassle when trying to install OS X. Also, if there's a guide you know of, please let me know.
       
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi,
      I'm currently running a Windows 7 x64 PC with:

      8GB DDR3 Ram

      AMD FX 4170 GPU

      AMD Radeon HD 7870 CPU

      1TB HDD (Windows 7)

      150GB HDD (Blank)
       
      Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 Motherboard
      I am aware that getting OSX on an AMD machine is not an easy task, but can it be done with my setup?

      I am currently running OSX 10.8.3 in VMWare which is OK but lags a fair bit and lacks any kind of 3d acceleration and would like to be able to dual boot it natively alongside windows on the 150GB HDD.

      Thanks

      Makes OS X and the installer work with the nForce 430 chipset.
       
      More specifically, allows OS X/installer to see the SATA and IDE (yes, IDE, too!) devices plugged in to your computer, including hard drives and disk drives.
       
       
      This kext does NOT make nForce LAN or anything else work, just SATA and IDE/ATA HDDs and ODDs.
       
      ---------------------------
       
      Works great with the Compaq Presario SR55 series!
