Since Apple website only has 10.7.4 apps available for download, I’m doing a fresh install on the latest 10.7.4 OS X available at the moment on my i5 2500k Sandy Bridge, HD3000 graphics, Asus P8Z68-V LGA motherboard. This is the best motherboard with built-in over clocking in the bios. It’s fast and solid for both […]
June 02, 2012 After some tries on installing Snow Leopard 10.6.8, Lion 10.7.4 and Mountain Lion DP1-Dp3, the board and i5 2500k are totally functional with both HD3000 on board and PCIE GS8400.

Let’s install Lion 10.7.3 to a hard drive – restore it to the second partition of a main drive with Windows 7 […]
A few weeks ago, my son told me his computer died, the i7 920 I built many years ago, I know the motherboard died, not the CPU, but the cost of getting a new X58 1366 is almost the same as getting a new set of Sandy Bridge i5 2500k and H61 motherboard, therefore, […]
