Do Asus Motherboards Support OS X Mountain Lion?

So, I am planning to build a new computer this summer. I got the components and things all set up already, but I suddenly thought about triple booting the system with Windows 7, OS X Mountain Lion, and Ubuntu. However, using my prior knowledge only Gigabyte motherboards support OS X to make Hackintoshes. The motherboard I want to use is the Maximus V Formula. I know it is a very high-end motherboard and I don't want to buy such an expensive motherboard that doesn't support OS X. If it doesn't work, can you tell me other Asus motherboards that'll work? Sorry, I simply like Asus better than Gigabyte because they are better and look better. If you can, can you give me some tips in getting a triple boot (For example, how to make the homescreen look better and it I need a specific software to do it)? Thanks.

My components AS OF NOW:
-Intel i7 3770K
-Maximus V Formula
-EVGA Geforce GTX 660 (big chance of getting the Ti version)
-WD Caviar Black 1 TB
-Corsair AX760i
-Corsair H100
-Asus X22 DVD Blu-Ray Burner
-A Couple of Fans
-Corsair C70 Vengeance Case
-NZXT Aperture M Card Reader

Thanks again!!!

Mac OS X will only work on an apple made system like iMac or MacBook.
You cannot make a Mac OS X work on any assembled or another branded computer.

I have a similar build like yours.
Asus Sabertooth Z77
i7 3770k
GTX 670
I sucessfully installed Mountain Lion 10.8.2 on it a week ago using UniBeast + Multibeast.
The GTX 670 worked right out of the box, didn't even need any kext for it.
But you might need kext for the Intel Lan and USB 3.0

i sort of feel like the title "motherboard expert" should be removed for being so incredibly wrong here.
