Comments

I chose the case because it's like my Mac Pro 2010 (size and handles). The rest of the components were from the recommended parts list here on tonymacx86.

What Works

Far as I can tell everything except as noted below.

What Doesn't Work

ALC1220 is giving me some difficulty. For now HDMI audio is working. Will need to figure this out at some point.
Onboard Wi-Fi and Bluetooth which I understand is normal. I will look into a compatible solution in the future.

Closing

Thanks for reading my build description!

Feel free to make comments as this is my first build. So much more to learn about this and testing of new areas.

Nice build -- I'm curious what it took (I'm assuming it was pretty easy?) to get the RX 580 to work? I've been thinking of purchasing one... does sleep/wake work? Thanks!

Thanks! Well I lurked on tonymac for a while just reading. Installing was pretty simple after that. A lot of nitty details that you can tweak and change though which I am still experimenting and learning about.

The RX was natively supported by macOS so nothing really to do there. Adding some extra kexts to the Clover Kexts Other allowed me to get the HDMI audio going. (lilu/whatevergreen)

I haven't played with sleep/wake yet. Currently I have that turned off for keeping things easy for me at the moment.

Cool, thanks for the info. I'm looking at the 570/580, and I appreciate the insight.

I would appreciate that too.

And also I didn't manage to boot up from standard UniBeast config...

Sorry its been a while guys. Had to focus on work for a bit but I have booted back in.

Here is the save copy of the MB file. I still have no luck with my onboard ALC1220 audio but HD audio is working fine.

Upgraded to Mojave from HS via the App Store. No change in status to my build. Maybe the new updates coming for Multibeast will help me get my onboard audio going.
