    Some general advice about my G5 build

    Good responses from Ramon and Charlee78, seasoned case modders, who have helped me out and offered advice on a couple of my projects. Just take your time and don't rush anything and you'll get a machine to be proud of.

    Some general advice about my G5 build

    Hi poggor, I like Noctura fans, they can be pretty quiet and efficient, though I see your back panel has been modded so I’m unsure of the size. Yes you will definitely need more fans. I have two fans mounted inside the original G5 plastic fan mounts in the front pulling air in, the PCI slots...

    The 4K Dell OptiMac - 9020 MT - Core i7-4790 - Radeon RX 570 - LG 4K IPS Monitor

    Thanks for sharing your work!, this is awesome. I've considered moving my 9020 SFF to a new case, but delayed doing it because of other projects. Finally seeing pictures of a successfully completed case swap on here is really inspiring. Good job and yes, you could easily fit a Sapphire RX 580...

    Dell S2721HGF 27” $209

    I’ve been holding out on a new monitor for some time. I knew what I wanted, 27”, DP port, quick refresh, this sync, that sync and no tearing!. The Scepter 24” was a good budget monitor, though you wouldn’t want to game on it for to long. This though you really do want to game on, the curve is...

    $555 Ryzen 5 mATX Ryzentosh System w/B550M 500GB NVMe and 500W PSU

    Yes the hackintoshing has slowed a bit for me, other priorities have taken over. Things are settling down so I’ll have more time to get it working soon, and I’m confident it will. Also enjoying gaming on the new system with a Dell 27” curved monitor that I purchased recently and yes it does have...

    $555 Ryzen 5 mATX Ryzentosh System w/B550M 500GB NVMe and 500W PSU

    Correct @mike6502, I am using the Gigabyte B550M DS3H board paired with a R5 3600X, in my G5 build. Admittedly I haven't got past the Apple yet, but I'm working on it. I have been watching CaseySJ threads, here and here, also leesureone has a thread here.

    Ongoing Progress - Big Sur on Gigabyte B550 Vision D - AMD Ryzen 7 3700X - Thunderbolt 3

    Yes!, I found the settings for BIOS on page #1, I have followed those apart from thunderbolt settings. I also see the patches I need to add to my installer. But I don’t have an OC installer, will this work with Clover?.

    Ongoing Progress - Big Sur on Gigabyte B550 Vision D - AMD Ryzen 7 3700X - Thunderbolt 3

    Hi @CaseySJ, I just put together my G5 Sapphire using the B550M DS3H mobo and Ryzen5 3600X. Do you have any pointers for BIOS settings?.

    [WIP] G5 Case Mod — GA B550M DS3H — Ryzen 5 3600X — RX580 Pulse 8GB

    I’m excited to get this Ryzentosh up and running, struggling with the installer at the moment. Is it worth doing a fresh installer?, i’d like to get Mojave on here. The Bios settings are different too, the only one I can see that would need changing is the serial port, UEFI is already selected...

    Announcement: AMD Ryzen Based Systems and tonymacx86

    I spent just $400 on a Gigabyte B550M DS3H Motherboard, Ryzen 5 3600X and 16GB RAM. The official AMD Apple could possibly be coming out next year, and I’m pretty sure it’s not going to cost $400.

    MHQJRH NVMe Heatsink for M.2 slot.

    @scottkendall, I have good news to share. It would seem, if you have a B550M DS3H and a Gigabyte RX570 handy, then yes!, the MHQJRH in the M.2 slot does indeed fit underneath a GFX card. Can we take a couple of moments to appreciate the beautiful packaging of the MHQJRH.

    What is the impact on Apple if NVIDIA were to buy ARM?

    Pretty sure they’re after the server market. They’re not going to make a console, they’re online service, game streaming is where we’re heading, no need to make a box anymore.

    [WIP] G5 Case Mod — GA B550M DS3H — Ryzen 5 3600X — RX580 Pulse 8GB

    After carefully checking both the pins and the socket, I noticed two triangles top and two squares on the bottom, (area on the corners of the AMD processor). It could only go in one way, I handled it extremely carefully and lowered it gently into place. Shouldn’t need replacing for a number of...
