    Zotac MAGNUS EN1080

    Would this beast work as a hackintosh once NVIDIA Pascal drivers are available for macOS? Intel Core i7-6700 quadcore, NVIDIA GTX 1080 8GB, M.2 & SATA-3, 2 RAM slots… all packed into a silent (watercooled) compact black box (22. 5 × 20.3 × 12.8 cm). What a monster!

    M.2 compatibility with x58

    For years I have been dealing with poor hard-drive performance on my Gax58ud3r. I only get around 200 mbps write and 300 read. I have been reading up on the Samsung m.2 drives and pcie adapters. So far it only looks like they make a pcie 3 adapter and my mobo is pcie 2. Are those adapters...

Alternatively, there are the Samsung 950 Pro which are available and reasonably priced (for what they are). The note on the BG says that "M.2 SSDs may...

    Hi everyone, I am currently happily running a CustoMac Pro, with two EVO 850 SSDs as my main drives (one for Windows and one for OS X MacOS).
