    Hi - newbie here. Looking for a video card. I gave my old MacPro 4.1 new 5.1 firmware, then maxed the RAM to 128 GB. Also swapped in 2 x 3.46 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon. But I'm using an OLD ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT 256 MB. I have a GeForce GTX 570HD, but the Mac crashes whenever it's plugged in...

    Working - USB 3 PCI-E (Inateck KT4004)

    Before the USB issues started happening my main problem was audio and to get around this I would use an external USB sound card. However with the switch to 10.11.xx the USB ports on my board were almost useless and the software fixes inconsistent. So after many weeks of testing various USB fix...

    Handoff Query Z97X-UD3H

    Hi all, not sure if this has been discussed already(I have searched to no avail), but it relates to compatibility of BCM94360CD with the Z97X-UD3H.

    CustoMac Mini Deluxe w/ both EVGA GTX 950 AND TP-Link PCIe?

    I'm planning on getting the CustoMac Mini Deluxe with parts almost exactly as what is specified in the buyer's guide except for the computer case. But, before pulling the trigger, there's something I couldn't figure out. What's strange is that it says "Please note that the included Intel m.2...

    Not enough PCIe lanes?

    I am currently tossing around the idea of building a computer to run VR games. (I'd probably game in Windows and do everything else in Mac, but that's not important) I plan on getting a GTX 1080 once it's available (if it works with OSX). I want to make the computer at least a little bit...

    I have an elitebook 8470w. I have an msata SSD connected to the the PCIE WLAN port. It works fine once in the OS. Both Windows and OSX will let me use it like a regular HDD. However it doesn't show up in the bios boot order, or in the F9 boot options. Is there a way to boot CLOVER off the...

    Wondering if anyone has any experience with: 1. HGST Virident FlashMax M1000 1TB Terabyte MLC solid state drive on PCI-e x8 (Link to review, with pics that match the one I have.) The card doesn't say anything about HGST on it, but HGST bought Virident. This card doesn't seem to have any...

    Hackintosh m-ITX.. What Wifi+bluetooth card do I switch to?

    I'm slightly confused about how to go about replacing the wifi card on my Gigabyte Z97N-Wifi m-ITX motherboard. First off, I'm looking at these two chips AzureWave Half Mini PCIE 1 and AzureWave Half Mini 2. I'm thinking the first will be better as it's cheaper yet still has better reviews with...

    Samsung SM951 on an older board

    I just bought an SM951 256GB PCIe SSD to replace my XP941. Previously, I had modded my bios to include the Samsung EFI module and I could boot from the XP941. No such luck with the SM951. However, the SM951 is write able in OS X. Anyone try this? Different EFI module needed in bios?
