Hi, folks. I've been coasting along with a mostly full-functioning build with Yosemite for about a year and a half. With Sierra on the horizon, I...

Silverstone Argon series CPU cooler
Samsung 840EVO 500GB SSD
GMYLE bluetooth adapter.
Done a bit of research and I've found lots of situations where people are having...
I thought I would make a nice PSA for people looking to make a build using the Gigabyte Z87N-wifi motherboard.
I am an artist, and use a Wacom Cintiq tablet display on a daily basis. The cintiq's standard output is DVI-I. The Z87N-Wifi's only non-HDMI display port is DVI-I. A match made in...

Hi, all. I followed the cutomac mini deluxe build relatively closely, but apparently not enough to avoid headache upon headache through this entire installation. A thorough list of my parts (even though the latter parts don't matter for the error at hand):

I am attempting to build my first Hackintosh.
Here is my setup:
Corsair CS Series 450 Watt
2 x Crucial Ballistix 4GB DDR3 1600
Samsung 840 EVO 120GB
TP Link TL-WDN4800
I have created a unibeast drive off of my Mac Mini with Mavericks 10.9.4. I...
I'm a serious noob when it comes to building Hackintoshes, so my apologies if I ask any stupid questions. I have built one before which didn't work at all under Snow Leopard (i3 3225, HD4000 Z77-HD3) but somehow I found a working ethernet kext and used that to upgrade to Mavericks...
I have just built a I5 4670k 1150, z87n wifi hackintosh running the latest version of mavericks. Everything seems to work fine but i can't get on the internet. I looked up the mobo and it says to set the ethernet driver to Intel i217V Atheros but only had ALXEthernet v1.0.2, AtherosL1cEthernet...
I just moved to a new apartment and I used to have a very long cable all over the place to get internet in my office but now I decided that since I'm in a nice place I wouldn't re-install that ugly cable.
I have a Z87N-WIFI motherboard in my machine, I saw that the bluetooth was working...
Recently I made my first build based on Mini-Deluxe advice.
I used all mentioned in Guide components.
Everything works well except USB.
After I connect external USB drives, it works for a while and then freeze.
Some times it can work without problem, hours with no issue. Some times it...
I'm attempting to install SL on Haswell build but getting Kernel Panic error: Unable to find driver for this platform: "ACPI"
I'm using the iboot method using version 1.0.1 found here
I am using the 10.6.3 retail SL DVD, and booting with the following commands:

I basically went straight down the line for my build components. I'm also dual booting Windows 7 off the same 120gb SSD.
I was running 10.9 and 10.9.1 fine with no issues, but after upgrading to 10.9.2 I've been experiencing a freezing issue. I'll boot into OS X and it'll work fine. After about...
This is the combo wi-fi/bluetooth half mini card that comes with the Z87N-WIFI and also the H87N-WIFI. Do yourself a favor before you install and rip it out!!!!!!!!!! :D
We all know the wi-fi card will never work and the forum is littered with posts from people trying to get the bluetooth...
Pretty self explanatory title. Obviously, with the z87n-wifi being a mini-ITX board at the moment with only 2 RAM slots available, it can only support 16gb of RAM. However, what are the chances of it being able to accept 32gb of RAM once compatible 16gb dimms are made readily available...
I'm looking to build a very small SFF Hackintosh to replace my venerable old Mac Mini. The motivation is that I want to be able to drive the new Dell 24" 4K monitor (the UP-2414Q). I don't care about gaming performance, I just really like ultra-high-res displays, served by small quiet...
When I was researching the parts for my hackintosh, I noticed many people asking whether anyone had had success with the h87n-wifi or z87n-wifi but no one had any answers, so I've decided to write a post.
First up my specs:
Intel core i5 4430 3ghz
16gb (2x8gb) 1600mhz...
I can see that the ga-h87n-wifi is now at this months buyers guide. However i can not find any complete build on this mother board.
Has any of you guys built a Hackintosh with it? Where is the DSDT, i read someone said that this mobo does not need it, is it true? Also i came across...
