    CustoMac Pro with a GTX 1080 Ti, easy installation ?

    Hello, I plan buying the exact same hardware as the CustoMac Pro, but with a GTX 1080 Ti. Do you think the installation and stability of the system would be more or less guaranteed, because it is on the buyer guide ? I also plan on using Intel 600P NVMe M.2 SSD.

    Western Digital SSD

    So, I got a hot tip from some friends the other day about a possible pricing error at Dell.com on a 250 GB 2.5 inch SATA III Western Digital SSD (WDS250G1BOA). It is normally $80-90, but for some reason was only $20. I quickly snapped it up, but instead of buying 2 (what I planned to buy for my...

    Unable to wake up CustoMac from sleep. Restarting is the only option.

    Once in a while when I am away from the Mac, it goes on a deep sleep and none of the key presses or mouse clicks will wake it up. The only option I have is a force restart which is not ideal. Is this a known problem or can I fix it? I was thinking about setting up screensaver. Thanks.

    Graphics card recommendation for the customac pro build

    So I am just trying to follow the list to build the hackintosh but I am unable to find a graphics card on that list that is actually available. They all seem to be out of stock or just price gouged on amazon. What is the best value (performance) that I can use? Thanks.
