This is my first post on Tonymac! Hello! I normally find enough information from looking through other posts but I'm at a dead end with this one. I've been around Hackintosh's for a few years but I wouldn't say I was an expert so go easy!
I've had my Hackintosh for around four years...
first of all thanks for this amazing website and the project!
This is my first build and my first post so please point me anywhere if I missed something.

I'm new here, and this will be my first computer build. Very excited! Please bear in mind I'm practically a complete novice. I'm particularly interested to hear BoomR's thoughts on this!
I'd like to build an i7 desktop to run Pro Tools 10/11 (and future versions) as my...

Been a PC guy my entire life.Now I want the best of both worlds.
Want a machine I can use Steam games, Pro Tools, Cubase, and Kontakt on Windows, but then use Logic, Garageband, and Digital Performer on the Mac Side. Want to be able to load plug-ins and sounds quickly. Do I even need an i7 or...
First of all !!!
I am new here. A BIG hello to this community. I'm reading now for a long time and have to say what you guys are doing is more than great ! As a long time always mac using audio post expert I realized (like many of you) that it is time to leave the predefined apple road to win...
Hopefully i'm posting in the right place..
I'm having issues with my newly installed Accel card, some of my busses have random white noise.

my pro tools setup have been working flawlesly for 1 year with...
I have a Windows PC that I would like to begin using for audio recording and production using Pro Tools 11. I have always used Pro Tools on OSX so I'd like to make a second drive set so that I can boot OSX and Windows 7. Just wondering if there are any glaring issues with my...
To keep a long story short I rushed my current build and just went ahead and bought parts directly off of TonyMacx86's buyer's guide for November 2013 and went with the GA-Z87X-UD5H only to find out that 8-series mobos don't play well with Mac OS X's audio codecs... After a week or so of trying...
Hi. I built a hackintosh for recording with pro tools about a year ago. And have been getting kernel panics while running pro tools basically the whole time. It sometimes will happen seemingly at random but mostly right after opening a session in pro tools. It is usually stable after you...
I have taken the decision and after lurking for a long time I will build my first.
The machine I want to build will be mainly used as a Pro Tools recording system in a Professional environment.
stable (hehe... who does not want this)
Conform ProTools 11 System...
Hello fellow Pro Tools HD users.
After months of laboring over this build (should I or shouldn't I?) I can today (jinx?) say I have a very stable and successful HD4 PCI build. I DID NOT have to make any alterations to the heat sink as outlined in freddar's incredibility helpful video.
I have a hackintosh with Gigabyte UP5 mobo, gtx 670 graphics, 16GB RAM, 3.5Ghz i7, and SSD. Everything on it runs great, but it's having trouble recognizing the iLok. Pro Tools 10 freezes immediately on starting up and also when I boot my computer I get this iLok Sharing Error:
This is me reaching out to the tonymac community in desperate need. I am a first time builder who sought out to built a hackintosh for the purposes of having a mean fighting machine as my studio computer. Specifically, running Pro Tools for recording audio projects and Adobe Premiere for...
Hey guys, so I need some quick help. A couple things have been acting wonky since I built. First off, I want to be overly detailed, here's what I'm dealing with:
3.5Ghz i7 processor (overclocked at 4.2)
Main Drive is 240GB SSD
Extra 1TB Seagate 7200RPM Drive
