    Help for a beginner

    My Z77 UD5H is still on 10.14.6 and I haven't used it in awhile. So I don't have any Catalina experience. I did document my adventures successfully booting it form NVMe here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/slugnets-video-editor-ga-z77x-ud5h-i7-3770k-gigabyte-geforce-gtx-660-ti.70530/page-59...

    How to get a Gigabyte RX 5700 XT for less than $1000 ?

    What's the shortage due to this time, the pandemic or is it still crypto currency mining?

    i9-9900K $320 at NewEgg

    I saw this too. I am happy with the 9700k for the moment. Do we think in a year or two this 9900k will be sold for ca. $200?

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    Hi Casey, I have been following your progress here for months and am in the middle of my build. This is an amazing thread and it seems all very clearly laid out until... In the installation instructions at #20. I skipped logging into my iCloud account, because I am hoping later on, when...

    (Near) Perfect High Sierra Setup on Z77x-UD5H / Ivy Bridge i5 / RX 560

    No the CPU is maxed out. Do you still need the EFI? That workstation isn't nearby right now, but, I get to it every few days. I've never shared an EFI, got to remove the SN I think...

    Asking for a friend... What's the fastest processor/gpu hardware that can still run 10.12.6?

    Asking for a friend in audio production who wants to stay on 10.12.6 for software reasons (IDK the reasons or what software). He wants 2020 Mac performance and still to be able to run 10.12.6. Any suggestions of what's possible, backwards CPU spoofing? Any builds here you can point me (to...

    Hi @Solidww Yes, I would like to know more! I should note I am not using FCPX. I am using PremierePro 2018 and am moving towards Davinci Resolve 16 (DR16) for it's cross platform usefulness and FCPX-like new cut page. MY Z77 UD5H rig in my signature has been great, but, I don't think I have...

    USB and ASM1142 on GA-Z97X-UD5H

    I don't understand USB issues well myself, but, on any forums, you can't expect "good" + "free" help to arrive "fast".
