Makes a perfect Hackintosh. No DSDT required for Mavericks. Everything (sleep included) works OOB when using Multibeast 6.4 (the Atheros driver needs to be selected for the onboard LAN chip, AFAIR). Takes cheap quad-core CPUs like Q6600 and up to 8 GB of RAM.
Offers no PCIE x1 slot, so no possibility to install a USB 3.0 adapter.
Be sure to install RAM DIMMs with bus frequencies no higher than 1333 MHz. DIMMs with higher frequencies will make this m/b hang at power-up without even POSTing.

No USB 3 or SATA 3 and only 1 PCIe slot. Maximum system bus of 1333.
One of the more reliable board I have used.
