Hey!

Wondering if anyone has any sucessfull experience with the MKII edition of the Asus Prime Z370-A contrary to the MKI. The MKI is out of stock and wont be restocked in any of my available outlets. Read a post about someone getting a prime Z370-P MKII working fine without any problems. Dare i trust that the same is the case with the Prime Z370-A MKII?

Also, the 8600 is not in the compability list of CPUs, will that work fine as oppose to a 8600K?

Looking to build a new hackintosh for my music production. Gonna use a couple of older parts from my gaming rig. Current plans as follows, planning to install Mojave

MOBO: Asus Prime Z370-A II
CPU: Intel i5 8600 (older part)
GPU: Nvidia GT 710
SSD: EVO 970 plus m.2 drive (one 256 gb and one 500 gb)(Read that a newly released firmware fixes the issues with these drives)
RAM: 2x8gb Corsair Vengeance DDR4 (older part)

I see no problems with your compatibility. The i5 8600 should work, being in the same family as the 8400 and 8600K. Your system should be compatible.
