I have a bit problem. I bought a Mac Pro 1.1 and I installed Mac Os X El Capitan 10.11 and a GTX 750 ti. I read about the compatibility problems as the black boot screen, but, sometimes (not always) I get nervous when I click the I/O button because I don't know if the Web drivers...
I put together this parts list for a dream build. I think it would be an incredible video editing/3d modeling/gaming rig. Not to mention that an actual Mac with these specs would probably be around $8k at least?! Pretty cool.
Inteli9-9900K 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor
Corsair H100i RGB PLATINUM SE...
So, I am officially crazy...
I bought 26 Powermacs (G5)
And I modded them ALL
They are now ready for ATX and mATX Mainboards…
But why 26?
Did I mention I was crazy?!
(And they were only sold together…)
I modded G5 Cases before – They kind of became my passion.
This time I wanted everything...

A few weeks ago I've finally got the courage and time to upgrade my Sierra to High Sierra. My 2 x GTX 980 worked perfectly in Sierra with no slowdowns whatsoever, but they appear to be problematic in the new OS version.
In Chrome, it is very often (for example, when viewing macrumors...

I have a large desktop early 2008 Mac Pro. I currently have an ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT graphics card in it, but I am looking to upgrade this to something a little bit better.
According to this apple link:
This card will work with it:

Does anyone have experience with a fanless psu in their Mac Pro Build?
I've been trying to find a good answer to this question, but can't find one.
I want to place the PSU in the original spot and maybe rewire the socket to fit the socket of the case, or use some kind of adapter. I...
New to the forum and looking for some advice please.

Hey guys! I saw a video from TechSmartt featuring a small mini PC called the PowerLead Ptox P1030. It looks like a Mac Pro, but the size of your hand! I know right, ridiculous!

I recently purchased a 2009 Mac Pro and upgraded it to 5,1 firmware and Sierra 10.12.6. For the sake of those who find specs helpful in isolating the problem, it's the 2.66Ghz 8-core, 24GB RAM, Booting from an OWC SSD drive in a PCIe slot. I also put in it a Nvidia GTX 960...
Not sure if support still runs for this OS but I am praying!
So I just need some help changing from iMac to MacPro. I can't install nvidia web drivers (I think) because of this. (makes sense to me as an imac would not have a 960 inside being an AIO)
Also in regards to clover, how does...

I finally finished the write up for a project that did recently. This is my first PC/Mac mod project, so it's definitively not perfect.

So, to make a very long story medium long.
I have been using my 2013 15" rMBP and a 2012 27" iMac for a long time, and they have started to feel slow, especially since I upped my game from FullHD-editing, for 4K editing last year.
But I couldn't really finance a new mac for 4000$. Considered...

***Who I am***
I am a person that can be best described as absolute newbie in terms of building CustoMacs aka Hackintoshs. I am/was a Pro Mac consumer with experiences since 2005 with respect to real Macs until lately when I bought a Mac Pro Late 2013 in order to see that it suffers from the...
