Been thinking about building a Hackintosh for a few years now but felt it wasn't the right time until now. I finally started planning my first build.
My machine will be used primarily for video editing, photo editing, graphic design, CAD and the usual stuff like web browsing...
After upgrading my Slylake based GA-Z170-HD3P machine from Mojave, my board PCH temps rose to 72c, then locking into 127c after.
Also finding that plugging in a USB drive for 10 minutes or so, the drive would be warm to the touch after unplugging.
Temps in MacOS:
Temps in Windows on the...
I bought a new motherboard and CPU for my hackintosh running macOS High Sierra (10.13.6), using the same graphics card which worked perfectly with the previous motherboard (ASUS P5-QLD).
With the new motherboard and CPU and no other changes made to the config.plist, the graphics lag a...
I have one Hackintosh on High Sierra working flawless and I’m trying to build new one on Mojave, main parts are:
- MSI H310M PRO M2
- Intel iGPU UHD 630
(Correct me if I’m wrong but I think rest is irrelevant)
But damn, I have nothing but issues with it:
- sound is not...
I just recently finished my Hackintosh with the following components:
Strix Vega 56
Samsung NVME M.2
Now i hate that my hackintosh doesnt have Wifi nor Bluetooth. Can i just swap out the motherboard for one with bluetooth and wifi? Because i m worried i will have...
I'm using the msi z370 gaming plus motherboard with an rx580 sapphire pulse graphics card and an i5-8400 cpu.
I've found that when I place the rx580 in the 16x pcie slot I get worse performance than in the 4x slot. Specifically more lag and jitteriness in fcpx as well as slightly...
I dont see this mother board MSI MPG Z390 GAMING EDGE AC in the buyer's guide.
Is there any problem with this mother board?
Can I expect all components to work?
Thank you guys for helping me.
i have built my previous Hackintosh made to run Mac OS X Mojave but I need to uprade as I do a lot of Final Cut Pro work and large Blender and After Effects Renders.
i am interested in going with a Dual Xeon Built and was considering Xeon E5-2687W as they are relatively fast with 8...
I want M.2 on the board for SSD drive.
I will be doing music production and playing x-plane 11. (The only game I'll play.) I keep running into the :
Gigabyte Z370XP SLI
ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-F GAMING
ASUS ROG MAXIMUS X HERO
What else would I need to put in the M.2 slot? From what I see I...
So here's the deal I am using a late 2013 27 inch iMac with 24GB ram 1TB HDD I want to upgrade to something faster and more up to date. I use Logic Pro X and I want to play X-plane 11. My current iMac can handle Logic for the most part. But it can't play x-plane.
I am currently using High...
I've had my hackintosh up and running smoothly, with no issues whatsoever for the past 4 years. It is still running 10.10.1 because it worked for me (if it ain't broke..) I haven't had any problems with any of my current/new software or hardware until now. All of a sudden, my whole...
I'm going to buy a full PC from scratch next month and I'm looking forward to install macOS. However, I'm currently a hackintosh virgin, and, although I followed the "Buyers Guide", I want to be sure that the current hardware I have in mind is actually the best for installing it. I'm going to...
i have this big question and i cant seem to find any info about it!!
i have a macbook pro late 2012 with a 500gb SSD(high sierra) ..but im gonna build a hackintosh and i dont wanna have to install everything from scratch on the hackintosh.
would it be possible to just clone my macbooks 500gb...
My current motherboard has bit the dust. Going to get an i5-8600K and a new board. I like the ASUS Prime H370M-Plus/CSM with the small form factor and the two M2 slots, but the H370 boards seem to be poorly supported. Is that still the case or are Unibeast and Multibeast ready for them?
Im pretty sure most of my other components are good to go, but does my mother board (MSI B360A PRO) support osx? Any information that might be specific to installing osx on this motherboard would also be much appreciated!
Hey lovely community members,
Minutes ago I had a terrible experience that during my normal work with my hackintosh (simple browsing etc - no "stressful" usage for the computer) the computer suddenly shutted down without any warning. From this moment on, I cannot turn on the computer anymore. I...
I am amidst the Great Z370 Confusion. Why would I not pick Asus Z370-P or Asrock Pro4? They're both around 100$.
Why do people pay 1.5x for Strix Z370-F Gaming, 2x for (Gigabyte Gaming 7) and 3x for (Maximus X Hero)?
Because of DisplayPort slots? You have those on your GPU...
I have a working hackintosh, no issues. But its old enough I can't use Mojave on it. I also have older drives that can boot up into Lion (Pro Tools) and Mavericks. What is the newest motherboard that I could get and still use these older systems? Or how can I research this? Thanks.
I'm working on a mATX build, but I'm really not sure about the mobo.
I'm thinking about going with Gigabyte because look it's the easiest mobo to get everything working.
But I'm really not sure about the model. so far the main differences are:
- USB 3.1 Gen2
I have a Z77-DS3H Gigabyte board and with the new High Sierra update I have found my old GPU does not work anymore. I have an i7 Intel chip that is basically doing the work for me at the moment but when I do more graphic heavy stuff it slows a bit. Have full 32GB Ram so it's maxed out there. I...
