Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H (Rev 1.0) Hackintosh Build

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

Here's my current Intel Hackintosh build! It is as follows (updated periodically, not original condition):

macOS: High Sierra 10.13
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K @ 4.5GHz

CPU Cooler: Arctic Liquid Freezer 120
Motherboard: In title! :)
RAM: 2 x G.Skill RipJaws DDR3-2400 RAM
Graphics: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 G1 GAMING 8GB GDDR5X
Storage: Samsung 840 120GB SSD (OS X), Samsung 850 EVO 120GB (Windows), Seagate ST2000DM006 (Games), Seagate ST31500341AS (Storage)
PSU: Seasonic SS-620GB 620W
Wifi: TP-Link Archer T8E
Case, Misc: Thermaltake Versa C22 RGB Snow Edition, Gamdias GKC1002 Hermes Mechanical Keyboard Combo, 2 x Logisys 12" 18 LED Sunlight Stick Red

Here's how I installed:

  • Perform a vanilla installation.
  • Install the following kexts to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other:
    • AppleALC
    • AtherosL1cEthernet
    • FakeSMC
    • Lilu
    • NvidiaGraphicsFixup
  • Install the NVIDIA Web Drivers.
  • Generate an SSDT with ssdtPRGen.sh, then copy the patched SSDT to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched.

That's pretty much it, folks! After these steps, users can go about their usual customizing.  Here's a generic overlook of my Clover config.plist, very straightforward:

I was wondering if your sleep/wake works fine with this board? I have the same (v1.0) board and F18 BIOS. I used your Nithy Audio patched DSDT and when I sleep the fans still run. I also can't wake with my power button or keyboard (although I have a Microsoft wireless keyboard and I think the sleep cuts the USB dongle so I'm not entirely surprised by this).

It's not a huge deal because I rarely sleep my computer at all but.. I'd kind of like it to be just right. Fussy, I know.

It's been awhile since I've put this computer to sleep, and since then, I've installed a new graphics card and updated to 10.8.3.

I'll try later today, then update this post on my sleep.

Update: It just shutdown, then started back up saying "My computer shut down because of a problem." I really don't care, anyways. :P

?

Update 2:?Sleep works. ?It's working flawlessly in Mavericks, but Yosemite doesn't seem to want to sleep when I manually tell it to. ?So:

  • Mavericks: Full sleep
  • Yosemite: As far as I've tested, automatic sleep only.

Sorry, Idnas2, I don't use Multibeast. As you can see, with the minimal steps I took to get it running, there was no need for a post-installation tool.

I used (and am currently using) an X86 Wifi adapter I put together using this guide. It worked OOB since Snow Leopard, so I didn't need to make any modifications there.
