Hello everyone

I'm about to buy components for my first Hackintosh and I'm not sure they will perfectly with each other...complete build would be:

Gigabyte GA77 DS3h - Intel i7 4770k - Gigabyte Geforce GTX 770 Windforce 4 GB - Corsair 16 gb DDR3-1600 Mhz Vengeance Pro - Samsung 840 EVO - Western Digital WD5000HHTZ Velociraptor

I already have the motherboard so, if possible, i wouldn't change that.

Thanks a lot :thumbup:

There are two versions of that board - V1.0 and V1.1

The i7 4770K is not on the compatibility list for either - v1.0 - v1.1

Perhaps it's because the Z77-DS3H is socket 1155 and the i7 4770K is socket 1150.

Good Luck

Go with either the 3570K or the 3770K. Should be easy to find those.

I'm afraid i'll have to change motherboard as well then....i work mostly with Adobe After Effects and Cinema 4d and I'm afraid i7 4770k is a must so to speed up rendering.
