    [Success] twobit2354's Sky Lake MITX: GA-Z170N-Gaming 5 - i7-6700K - GTX 980ti - Sierra - 4K

    The EVGA hadron with the included 500w psu is enough for this hardware. The TDP on the gpu is 250w and the CPU is 91w. With the motherboard and everything else your only looking at 350-400w max load under a absolute worst case scenario. I'm actually considering a similar build using a 450w...

    Success!! GA-Z87N-Wifi, i5 4670k, 760gtx CustoMac Build!

    I just updated to the F6 bios for the Z87N-Wifi. For some reason this bios renders OS X unable to boot successfully. I am not sure what the cause is. I remember I updated before and I had to switch back to the F5 bios to make OS X work again. F6 causes the Chimera boot loader to show the video...

    [success] Valkerie's GA-Z87N-Wifi / 4770k@4.5ghz / 8GB / GTX 780Ti SC / 10.10 Yosemite

    You are correct Stork, thanks for summarizing it. I actually crashed the OS the first time I installed it because I thought I selected DSDT free, but I actually unselected it by pressing it again. The new MultiBeast is much better than old checkbox version, but it does take some thought to...

    Valkeriefire's Build: GA-Z87N-Wifi / i7-4770K / GTX 780Ti SC Components i7-4770k overclocked to 4.5ghz http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116901 Gigabyte GA-Z87N-Wifi Rev 2.0 Motherboard - but I'm not using the stock wifi since it isn't OS X compatible...

    GTX 970 / GTX 980 are here

    As of right now the 980 is not supported, so don't buy it if you want to use OSX. Also for video editing the primary bottleneck is the CPU, not the gpu. So having a 980 vs 780 or even lower will not help you. If you have a 3570k as stated in your profile, you would see a large benefit getting a...

    Making a Fusion Drive on my MacMini, it a bad idea?

    I actually already did and there is surprisingly little information. Many people have made fusion drives using 128gb SSDs and their original 1TB HDDs, this in essence recreates an identical system to the factory Apple Fusion Drive. I have yet to find an example of someone using a 256gb or 512gb...

    4770k Overclocking for total beginners?

    Nice work, if my 4770k did 4.4ghz and was remotely stable, I would be very happy.

    4770k Overclocking for total beginners?

    Most over clockers run Windows, so all of the guides for testing overclocks are in Windows based scenarios. Testing an OC in Windows is easier due to all the software available for free to test. CPU-Z, CoreTemp, HWinfo64, Prime95, AIDA64 are all commonly used Windows apps for OCing. The actual...

    Making a Fusion Drive on my MacMini, it a bad idea?

    I know this isn't a hackintosh question, but there is a lot of knowledge here, so why not. I've got a 2012 Mac Mini, and I bought a new 512gb Crucial MX100 SSD ($200 right now BTW). I was going to link it with a 500gb Seagate Hybrid HDD and create a 1TB fusion drive. The reason I want to...

    GTX 780 Ti

    I just wanted to confirm that the 780Ti works great now. I found the easiest way to install was to remove the 780Ti and install using the IGP (4600HD). Once OS X is up and running and you've ran Multibeast, update to 10.9.3. Then download the NVIDIA drivers and install them. Install the...

    GTX 780 Ti

    Ok, I am considering selling my water cooled sli titans and switching to a single gtx 780ti. If I do this (probably the evga SC version, same as ReconAlpha), all I do I use nvidia disable 1 to get into OS X, install the nvidia drivers, reboot with disable, switch to nvidia drivers, reboot again...
