Hi Guys,

Sorry I posted this first in the Desktop Compatibility forum, before reading that this stuff need to go under the Buying Advice forum, so here we go. I'm putting together my first Desktop Hackintosh (I've hacked a HP Notebook together), and would really like some feedback on the parts I'm hoping to use.
I've looked through the CustoMac build parts, and these are the parts I can get from suppliers where I stay and am hoping they can all work. Keen to hear how well these parts work together, and if I will foresee any issues with any of them.
Parts:
Gigabyte Z170X-UD3 Motherboard
Intel Core i7-6700 3.4Ghz
Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 750Ti Oc 2048Mb Graphics Card
32GB (2 x 16GB) Crucial Ballistic LT 2400Mhz DDR4 (I'm hoping to get up to 64GB later, so that why I chosen a board that can support 64GB Ram)
Samsung 850 Evo 500GB
Corsair Carbide 500R Tower
Corsair CXM500 Series PSU
TP Link TL-WN851ND Wireless N PCI Card

Thanks, will check the WIFI card out.

Also will I need a CPU cooler with my CPU and Motherboard option?
If you purchase the retail box version there is a CPU cooler in the box that works for most people. Personally I do not like them as they are noisy on startup and under heavy load. Suggest a Noctua cooler if you want to get one.

The OEM tray version comes without fan, but is only USD$3 less expensive and is not available everywhere.
