My audio workstation hackintosh is giving me some network related trouble. I’m trying to connect my ipad to my hackintosh to use apps like Lemur. To do this I’m trying to set up the Hack just like I had my 2009 mac pro set up - sending one ethernet to a unmanaged switch for my PC audio slaves...
I just recently upgraded from my old AMD 6870 to a Gigabyte Windforce OC 980 ti. I've been researching on the forums here and thanks to the great posts, I have my new card running. The problem is, it is performing worse than my previous card and the HDMI port is not working.
Here is my current build that has been working for about 4 years now:
Asus P9x79 Pro
AMD 6870 2GB by XFX
I built this machine for occasional editing with FCP X and it worked great. But time has passed and am looking to upgrade GFX card and have no idea which direction to...
I recently updated from 10.9 to 10.10 following the update guide from TonyMac. Everything went surprisingly smooth and the computer is running better than it did on Mavericks. However, I did not write down my ROM and MLB numbers which were working great with apple servers on 10.9. I made a fresh...
I have just purchased an EVO 850 upgrade for my Hackintosh. I made a super duper clone of the old system drive to the EVO, but the EVO will not boot. What do I need to do to make the drive bootable? I'm sure it's an easy fix but I have not made changes to my stable hack in some time...

I am looking to start my 3rd Hackintosh build for my Dad as a surprise gift and need a little advice. I'm reading up on the forums and just starting to layout my purchasing options and have a CPU's question. I'm thinking the best bang for the buck would be an i5 4690, but am unsure...
I am in desperate need of some help here. I have just installed 10.9.2, but after running multi beast and restart with -v, everything goes fine until the screen blinks to white, then grey and hangs. I don't know what I have done wrong, have tried a lot of boot flags, nothing seems...
Finally have my Hackintosh running great, but have one minor issue. I installed the USB 3.0 kext from Multibeast 5.4.1 and was pleasantly suppressed to find I now have the front case USB 3.0 ports working just fine (tested an external 3.0 Seagate drive and saw read/write 160 MBps...

I am confused as to what SMBios device id to use. I have read that using MacPro 5,1 can cause problems as it will be looking for ECC memory. However, this is the only ID that has a 6-core processor. What should I use?
