    Thunderbolt 3 10GbE Networking???

    Is there a way to use Thunderbolt 3 for very fast 10GbE or faster networking? I've never played around with Thunderbolt & I'd be interested in using TB 3 to network my Hack, Server (currently running Open Media Vault), and another computer, most likely a Win10 PC. I'm not interested in going...

    MSI RX 560 Low Profile Mojave 10.14.1 DisplayPort not working

    I can use Mojave with HDMI, but if I switch this video card to the DisplayPort, I get a black screen after the booting progress bar with the Apple logo. Please help as I'd like to use DisplayPort instead of HDMI. Thanks

    [Solved] No Shutdown or Reboot in Mojave

    This Hack has no problem shutting down or rebooting when booted from High Sierra 10.13.6, but freezes at the spinning white wheel when I try shutting down or rebooting in Mojave. Everything is the same = config.plist, BIOS Settings, & Kexts. I've included my zipped EFI folder that I use in...

    Asus XG-C100C 10GBase-T PCIe Network Adapter

    These are $100 https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833320272 https://www.asus.com/Networking/XG-C100C/overview/ It would be nice if some enterprising Hackintosher who is bored with GB Ethernet (like I am) could hack together a good macOS driver for this puppy. It has Linux...

    So I've built this new Hack and chose to go with Kaby Lake based on some success a few people have had here with it based on the info in these posts: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/success-twsps-build-asus-z270i-strix-i7-7700k-hd-630.216999/...

    To all who have RX 480 - Why No GTX 1060?

    I'm trying to decide which way I want to go for my next video card upgrade, and I'm leaning toward the GTX 1060 based on all the reviews by the PC websites, like this one: https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/RX_480_Gaming_X/ It seems the GTX 1060 gets higher (5-10% ?) in most games, uses...

    New Hack - 16GB RAM Being Seen as Only 8GB

    Hello all, I'm hoping someone can help me fix this. First time I've ever had to deal with this issue on a Hack. I've got 16GB (2x8GB) of Crucial DDR4 RAM in my system but my Hack is only seeing them as 2x4GB so it's reporting only 8GB total. My BIOS Sees all 16GB, 2x8GB stick, though it's...

    Which Build Would You Go For: i7-4790K or i5-6600K - My Thoughts . . .

    OK, I just finished parting out my super-silent i5-4690 (non-k) Hackintosh on eBay. While I loved the silence, I was underwhelmed to a slight degree with the performance. So, time to turn my attention to my next Hack: My local Micro Center offers decent options as far as availability & I prefer...

    El Capitan System folder empty

    OK, so I found out how to unhide the System folder (stupid Apple) but now it doesn't show any files or folders. I'm assuming they're hidden as well? How do I unhide them? Thanks!

    To FreeSync (AMD) or G-Sync (nVidia), that is the question . . .

    Thinking about my next monitor purchase. I currently have a HP Pavilion 27xi, but am looking for something possibly bigger, or at least the same size but some great new features like FreeSync or G-Sync, another IPS panel (no TN crapola). I don't do as much gaming as when I was younger, but when...

    Considering G-Sync for my Next Monitor . . . .

    Any issues with using one w/a Hack? I'll most likely get a GTX 960 (maybe 970) vid card. From what I understand, G-Sync only work with DisplayPort. So, GTX 960/DisplayPort/G-Sync Monitor/Hack with Yosemite. Any problems? Ideally, I'd like to get an IPS G-Sync monitor. These aren't available...

    PCI Express SSD for Hack?

    I'll be building a new Hack (hopefully) soon, with an Asus Z97-based mobo, and I'd like it to have a REALLY FAST boot drive, not just a fast SSD, hopefully something with 1GB/s read speeds, so I'm hoping there is a PCI-E based SSD that would fit the bill. My main concern is compatibility with...

    Smb implementation in yosemite is still f'ed up!!!

    So today I upgraded my Hack to 10.10. Everything went smooth as silk, except for the Boot0 error which I quickly fixed from previous experience with Mavericks. So far, I'm liking the speed/responsiveness (still need to get used to the 2D look), but there is one MAJOR flaw - File transfers...

    Building New Hack Soon - Need All-Steel or Aluminum Case Suggestions

    I'm starting to plan my next Hack, and like the title says, I'll be using either ATX or Micro ATX motherboard. I want either an all steel or aluminum case, preferably steel. I hate plastic in cases. I know Lian Li, it's been a few years since I've owned one, and found the aluminum to be too...
