Have you checked for OSX drivers for all hardware? yashua916 January 5, 2012 10:30:10 PM WR2 said:Hello Yashua916; I see a few items in your list that I haven't previously seen on any Hackintosh builds.

Get the answer WR2 January 5, 2012 10:37:43 PM I'd work with some of the Hackintosh sites to see what others have had success with, or are recommending. You're going to find the 'hardware pool' is a lot shallower for OSX than for Win7. WR2 January 5, 2012 10:43:43 PM If I were to guess: ASUS Crosshair V Formula AM3+ AMD 990FX (and it's AMD FX-8150 Zambezi CPU) will be hardest to source OSX drivers. Only dual HD 6870s in a $2000 system? Looking at the rest of your build I'm thinking you're investing too much or your $$$ into the system cooling and not enough in your system performance parts.
