    Advice please: GA-Z170X-UD5 -> Z390-Designare

    Yeah, I just remember all the "fun" trying to get iMessage working. Of course, all of this predates clover, even, so I'm hopeful. (this is my 3rd hack)

    Advice please: GA-Z170X-UD5 -> Z390-Designare

    OK, great. Did you have to change Mac Model or Serial Number?

    Advice please: GA-Z170X-UD5 -> Z390-Designare

    Hi All, I have a fully working Hackintosh (Gigabyte GA-Z170X-UD5/i7-6700k/GTX 1080/clover) that has served me well. In preparation of moving to a Big Nav here in a few months, I've decided to upgrade my MB/CPU to a Gigabyte Z390-Designare with a i9-9900k. Using the buyer's guide, everything...

    Making the move from GTX670 to GTX1080 on X58A

    FYI, received my 1080 Founders Edition today. Remarkably, working well! I'll report back if I find any problems.

    Making the move from GTX670 to GTX1080 on X58A

    @slim.jim , thank you. That's what I'm praying for here. I've been through quite a few battles getting my Hack to perform its best, and it's proven out well. I'm all for a challenge as long as it's conquerable. I'd hate to fight a losing battle.

    Making the move from GTX670 to GTX1080 on X58A

    Thanks, @bmoag , your points are well taken! This is certainly only step one for my system (it's already ordered) - by the time I'm done it will be a completely new box (probably using tony's MacPro buying guide as a guideline). I dual-boot to Win8.1 to do my gaming, and I'm sure I will see...

    Making the move from GTX670 to GTX1080 on X58A

    Hi all, My hack has served me very well, and has basically been running and stable 24/7/365 since I built it. It's getting very long in the tooth graphics wise, so I've just ordered up a GTX1080 to put in her (I plan to make a new build soon...). I don't frequent the forums nearly as much as...

    X58a-UD3R macos Sierra with the very old guard

    Since I'm using Clover, I did an update via the App Store using the instructions in tony's post.

    X58a-UD3R macos Sierra with the very old guard

    You may want to check again as to what SysDef to use. I'm browsing here to see about my shutdown problem in Sierra, but it seems that I've read that some SysDef's won't work. Personally, I use MacPro 5,1. I have Sierra running, but I can't shut down without it corrupting my CMOS. It's a...

    OS X 10.8.3 and NVIDIA 6xx OpenCL Benchmarks

    With my 670, I only noticed benchmark reductions... everything else seems just as fast as before. Thanks for the time and effort you put into letting us know the facts!

    Looking for a good video card for gaming

    That 680 is a monster for games, so technically you shouldn't have any issues other than the simple fact (IMO, of course) that Mac gaming performance is still not even close to what you can get in Windows. I completely feel your pain, because I try and try to get games to work as well under OS...

    Random Log Out while using otherwise working system.

    In case anyone cares, 10.8.2 fixed this issue. I've been happily running 3 monitors on my two video cards since it's release. YAY! - Coolz
