    Nvidia Mojave support

    I just did the same, Microcenter had a decent sale on a 4G RX570. Plugged it in, everything worked.

    [Solved] Clover r4700 stuck at End RandomSeed +++... while booting

    Same problem, stuck at End RandomSeed after updating to the current Clover and Clover Configurator. I booted my High Sierra USB installer, selected the regular MacOS install disk, then launched Clover Configurator to add AptioMemoryFix-64.efi.

    HP 27f 27" IPS 1920x1080 at Best Buy

    Best Buy has this monitor for $129.99 for the next few days for Rewards members (free signup). I have several similar monitors (HP27er) on my Hackintoshes (my office machine uses three), and while they aren't high-end, my experience has been that they perform quite well for this price point at...

    [REPORT] issue with clover 4586 - MacOS 10.13.5

    I don't understand why v4586 is still available. There should also be a note in the top-level update thread warning about this.

    macOS 10.13.4 Update

    I was really dreading the update, given the pain of the last two, but to my surprise it was one of the easiest yet. Updated from the app store, installed the new nVidia drivers, and done. Ten minutes, tops.

    Laggy High Sierra with GeForce GTX-950

    I have a nearly identical system currently running 10.13.13. Here's my config.plist for reference. I don't know what steps you took when building the machine, but it might help to remove the GTX-950 while installing / upgrading MacOS, then reinstall it and use to get the .106...

    macOS 10.13.3 Update

    Just did a relatively painless update from 10.13.2 to 10.13.3 on a GA-Z170X-UD5 | i7 6700K | GTX 950 (iMac 14,2). It seemed as though most issues in the forum were around the GTX video card, so I unplugged it, updated, then plugged it back in and installed the current nVidia drivers. I haven't...

    Fenvi FV-T919 is Back at

    I received a FV-T919 from an eBay seller a few days ago, and it works perfectly. It took about two weeks to arrive on the boat from China. [update] A few folks asked, here's the link for the eBay offering. Currently listed at $68...I paid $47 shipped earlier in July, so it's probably worth...

    Success: GA-Z170X-UD5, i7-6700K, EVGA GTX970, Skylake iMac 17.1

    My build is quite similar; Z170X-UD5, i6700K, GEFORCE 950, 32G RAM, 2xEVO850-500G. I also used iMac 17,1 as the system definition. A few hints that might help some folks... Prior to installing AGDPfix, you'll need to disable system integrity protection (SIP). Most pages recommend booting from...

    First step is to tell us what problem you are experiencing. I have two GA-Z77-DS3H systems that are running Mavericks with no issues. Perry

    Getting my first REAL Mac (iMac)... Best way to transition?

    I just went through a migration from a hackintosh to an iMac using Migration Assistant, and the result was an unbootable hackintosh. A quick Google search revealed that it's a known issue. This article on netkas suggests a fix for the hackintosh. Note that in my case there were also problems on...

    Hackintosh suddenly won't turn on. Help!!!

    Same problem on my GA-Z77-DS3H, would not power up after having run fine for months...Helen Keller mode (no lights, no sounds). Removing and replacing the CMOS battery fixed the problem. My wife came up with the root cause. I just set up a shiny Haswell 27" iMac (a real one!) and used the...

    OS X 10.8.5 Update

    On one of my machines (GA-Z77X-DS3H) I had to remove /S/L/E/GenericUSBXHCI.kext to get a successful install. Both the combo update and Multibeast were failing on rebuilding the kext cache; looking at install.log in the Console app revealed: kextcache: Prelink failed for...

    The Evolution of Intel's Core i Processors

    It'd also be fun to see how long after a new architecture was announced did it become nearly impossible to walk into Microcenter and find a compatible motherboard. I was at the Cambridge MA store a few weeks ago and an associate and I had to hunt for a Z77 board! Zillions of Z87 boards available.
