Arrow New Hackintosh / PT7 Sandy Bridge HD PCI Rig !!!

Hey Guys,

This thread has turned into a great resource to find working Intel Sandy Bridge systems....

1. Are you ready to take the leap an build a monster new Sandy Bridge rig?
2. Want to take your PCI(x) HD cards with you?!
3. Want it to support at least an HD2 PCI(x)?
4. Want it to be able to run both Mac & PC ?

I have searched the DUC, tonymacx86, and the rest of the web but could only find a few small threads hinting at incompatibilities with these older HD cards and the Z68 chipset boards...nothing definitive.

Have you built a "Hackintosh" OSX or Win7 HD rig using new gear?
Tried and true for sessions?
Do you have a better motherboard/chipset to choose?
Do you have a working system?

10/19/11 UPDATE:
The only Sandy Bridge Intel chipsets which support PCI natively are: B65, Q65, and Q67. All others (which bridge support via pcie) have not been shown to work with pro tools HD PCIx cards.

I found another great thread on the subject here:

5 people have now reported successful "Sandy Bridge" builds with HD PCI-x cards based on the Q67 chipset:
