I would like to say thanks to this build. I believe it has been 6 or 7 years and this build is still strong through each version of MacOS.

It's technically 99% MAC.

Another one here still running this build! Is it safe to update to Mojave or am I best going with High Sierra? I'm still on El Cap atm but I really need to update now! I'm using the onboard graphics so slightly worried about the resolution issues mentioned earlier...

Thanks! I've just bit the bullet, and, after a couple of strange re-boots during the initial install, I've managed to get it to boot up. After running MultiBeast, my graphics seem spot on; Bluetooth works, too. But I'm struggling to get WiFi (TP-Link PCIe card) and audio working at the moment. I'll update this if/when I get it sorted out.

Working fine for me. Only HW upgrade I did was moving to NVIDIA GeForce GT 710 for QHD display (bought a new monitor) support.
