Hardware Compatibility

This is a component level hardware compatibility list. We want to keep it as accurate as possible, but please, do not entirely rely on this list when buying hardware. Add which parts you have working in the categories listed below, or create a new category. Please keep alphabetical order inside the categories. The categories themselves are ordered by popularity. Please list any caveats or problems as well.

  • ONLY add hardware that you have TESTED. Don't add hardware just because you think it might work.
  • Please add hardware into tables.
  • This is for 10.8.4 builds only.

For how to edit the Wiki, please see this thread. Thank you!

G41M-VS3 R2.0 Intel G41 System Configuration:
  • CPU: Intel Pentium Dual-Core E5800 3.2GHz (But Mac OS X thinks, that I have only 2.8GHz CPU)
  • GPU: AMD Radeon HD6670 1GB (I didn't check onboard Intel GMA X4500)

Component Status:

  • Audio (VIA VT1705) works with VooDooHDA kext
  • Ethernet (Atheros AR8152/8158) works with ALXEthernet 1.0.2 kext, but system cannot start for first time after first reboot. After second reboot it working normally.
  • Note: I updated to 10.8.4 via Software Update. Everything works normally, so if you'll decide to install Mac OS X 10.8.4 on hardware like mine, you'll not have problems with kexts (kexts for Ethernet and Audio for 10.8.3 works with 10.8.4).

X79 Fatal1ty Professional Intel X79 System Configuration:
  • CPU: Intel Core i7 3820 3.6GHz (But Mac OS X thinks, that I have only 3.2GHz CPU)
  • GPU: NVidia 670GTX SLI (Didn't tried to enable SLI though, I'm currently using Apple driver, so I think I have to install NVidia ones to be potentially able to enable it)

Component Status:

  • On-Board Audio works with modified AppleHDA kext
  • On-Board Ethernet works with modified IONetworkingFamily kext
  • On-Board Marvell SATA Controller works with AHCIPortInjector kext
  • Core i7 8 Cores are recognized with VoodooTSCSync kext
  • Using custom Asrock X79 DSDT for BIOS 1.5 (I'm using BIOS 2.2 and it works)
  • NullCPUPowerManagement mandatory, because there is no CPU Power management working on X79, only two states, Idle and Full.
  • Note: I updated to 10.8.4 via Software Update. Almost everything works normally (Ethernet and Audio are broken post-install), so if you'll decide to install Mac OS X 10.8.4 on hardware like mine, you won't really run into troubles (excepted for kexts for Ethernet and Audio that have to be reapplied after 10.8.4 combo update though)
