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 10.8.0 builds only.

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

  • As with Lion, at shutdown, the OS shuts down, but the computer stays running (seems to be a problem with Intel boards)
  • Followed tutorial Here
  • FakeSMC.kext
  • NullCPUPowerManagement.kext
  • SMBIOS Mac Pro 3.1

NOTE: also installs easily with MyHack following default prompts

Intel DG31PR Intel G31 System configuration:
  • Intel Core 2 Duo E7400

Installation method:
  • Mountain Lion 10.8 Retail (App Store version)
  • Used FakeSMC, Elad's HDAEnabler, Chameleon, GraphicsEnabler, and PS2 keyboard and mouse kexts. ML was pre-cooked using MyHack prior to installation.


  • Shutdown/Reboot
  • Mac App Store
  • Graphics acceleration (2D/3D)
  • Most applications including Adobe Premiere (as using graphics injectors like NVDarwin seems to crash the latter)

NOT Working:

  • Sleep mode powers down the system rather than putting it to sleep as intended.
