As most of you may have seen, someone called Jollyjinx published this week blog posts about his experimentations with Fusion Drive.

Fusion Drive looks to be working automatically on any Core Storage volume, as long as there's a SSD and an HDD, whichever their brand and model number.

 

So there's no reason it shouldn't work on a hackintosh, but has any one tried? Would you recommend it?

I was able to create the drive and install Mac OS X 10.8.2 however Clover does not see the HDD and SSD with Mac OS X installed on them. Only sees them as a legacy OS. The drive shows up and is working if I boot into my back up drive.

 

Clover does not see any of my drives if they are connected to my SAS card.

Was able to get it to boot. I set it up with 2 raid 0 HDD (300 MB/s) and a SSD (500 MB/s) however it seems that apple has capped the read/write because I was never able to see over 250 MB/s which every post I have seen so far is what they are getting, For my setup it was slower but for many users they will find that this is a nice way of having Mac installed. Its just not meant for people like me...
