Article: Building a CustoMac: Buyer's Guide December 2013

Q;Does the HDD for the customac mini necessarily have to be sata 6gbs? its just im low on money and have a spare sata 3gbs drive here. oh and one more thing, i can use any 1600mhz ddr3 ram right?

You can use an existing HDD that you own. Be aware that you will need to create a boot drive with OS X on that is no bigger than 1TB - this is not down to OS X, but rather a restriction that easy to use boot loaders like Chimera and Chameleon have to live with. Clover is not subject to this restriction but is not considered noob friendly yet.

You will probably need to use macMans boot0 guide to overcome the 4k sector sizes that larger HDDs use.
