    Computer won't boot into macOS, but works fine in windows

    Interesting article! however I'm not sure if it's related to my current issue. I'm going to try and take a video of the issue later. However, the SSD is recognized by the BIOS, and I may run a hard drive test later to see if the drive is kaput.

    HP 8300 Complete Overhaul: PSU and GPU upgrades

    My apologies for not seeing this right away, it's been a crazy month so far. I was using a 1050ti with the factory PSU that comes with the 8300.

    HP 8300 Complete Overhaul: PSU and GPU upgrades

    Great to hear from you! Glad it all went well. I’m using HWmonitor to check my temps and voltages and such. As for the PSU, I don’t really find PSU fans to be particularly loud, so I went with an actively cooled PSU. However it is up to you! Be sure to post pictures if you decide to modify...

    HP 8300 Complete Overhaul: PSU and GPU upgrades

    Glad I could be of help! The only modifications I did to the case was drill two holes so I could secure the PSU in the case. It fit in the case just fine, except for the bolt holes not lining up. I’ll see if I can snap some pics tonight!

    Hackintosh Dual Monitor Issues

    Oh that's right, I forgot that VGA support was dropped. Well shoot. I don't think my card has a DVI output. I'm currently using a DP to VGA cable, so the computer and card thinks it's going to a DisplayPort input on the monitor. Would it make a difference if I used a DP to DVI cable?

    Hackintosh Dual Monitor Issues

    it does! I'm not sure if my GTX 1050ti has a VGA output, but if it does, I'll try and scrounge up a VGA cable and test it! If not, I might just have to pony up for a DP to VGA adapter
