To answer all of your questions: yes. I am aware that there are some limitations for my board. wink.gif First of all, the chipset isn't supported. And as far as the 7970, it does "work," you just have to add
Code:
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>2560x1440x32</string></pre>

To your plist. It won't run accelerated but that's okay. I decided on AMD because these cards can mine bitcoins. No more on that subject because it is against the rules to talk about that. As far as audio, it is supported. DSDT, I haven't looked but I'm not to afraid of making one for myself. Enthernet, there was a kext floating around for it but I don't think it got updated past OS X 10.7.2 or so. I would LOVE a GA-X79-UP4 personally but it would have to be a trade, I can't just upright buy it. Thanks for your concerns smile.gif

Got the new PSU today. It is making a high pitch whine, could be anything from coil whine to a bad capacitor. I'll go ahead and run some applications that stress my GPU and see if this thing can handle it.

Bitcoin mining, It would appear there is a deeper side to jeffinslaw than I first expected.
Sweet build so far though, subbed!

Yes, I suppose there is haha. I do it for the money and the heat it generates (makes my room nice and toasty) quite honestly. It's a shame that bitcoins have gotten suck a bad rep with the whole "anonymous" aspect of it but what I do is just strictly mine. Don't make much so I only mine from time to time. No more on that subject though because talking about bitcoins is frowned upon on this site which I totally understand.

Thanks for the comment!

Just wanted to give you guys a little update as to where I am. I have been looking at putting an Alphacool UT45 360MM radiator up top, and an Alpha UT60 240MM up front. I know this would involve me putting another hole in my case, which I'm not too keen about but I'm worried I won't have enough rad space to cool my two GPU's and an overclocked i7 3820. I know with that much rad space, I will easily be able to cool it all.

This also means I won't be able to run a DVD drive because the extra 120MM fan will be in the way. That's okay though. I'm still trying to figure out where to put the SSDs. I was going to put them in the spot where the DVD drive was going to go but they wouldn't fit with the radiator there. I may just have to throw them in one of the drive bays and not run RAID0 for storage in OS X.
