Hi I'm a newb building my first Hackintosh. I'm interested in building the CustoMac mATX build (sorry, ignore the build I wrote in the thread title). I've read that getting iMessage to work can be a pain. Is the TP-Link Archer T9E 802.11AC AC1900 that's shown as part of the build everything I need on a hardware level to enable iMessage to work?

Getting iMessage working on a hackintosh involves many factors that you should read up about.
It's a good idea to read through these to threads to know what is involved.

If you want to also have working Continuity and Handoff when using an iPhone and your CustoMac then you'll need a natively supported Wifi and BT card like the Fenvi card which uses the Broadcom BCM94360CD. As of now that is the best choice for a Wifi/BT combo card. If you ever plan on using those features get that instead of the TP-Link.
