    Memory + X58A-UD5

    I have installed 3x8GB of RAM in the motherboard listed. It boots up, sleeps, shuts down, fine. But, if I add a stick to any channel B slots I get all kinds of lag during boot up, window movements, programs, etc..... It does list all my RAM as being there just doesn't perform well. I used...

    Mixing AMD GPUs.

    Hello, fellow hackintoshers. I am wondering if anyone has used multi AMD GPU that didn't match? What I am considering doing is using an R9-270X 2GB model with a 4GB model. Or possibly using a 7950 with the R9 series GPU since OS X sees the R9 card in the machine currently as a 7XXX card...

    10.6.8 and GTX480

    Hello, it has been a while. Now, everything I have been reading from people states that getting a GTX480 to work in 10.6.8 AKA Snow Leopard isn't an easy task. After a fresh install using a 9800GT, I removed the 9800GT and placed the GTX480 into the machine. Walla, everything is working...

    APRICORN VEL-SOLO SSD caddy

    I keep seeing the add for this little device on this site. I have gone to NewEgg and other sites to research compatibility. I haven't found anything to justify that this device works on a Mac platform. It would be nice to use as it gets its power from the PCI slot and shouldn't bottle neck a...
