@CaseySJ Alright so thunderbolt works just fine on both interfaces and hard drives, I also got the ram up to 2933mhz with the system stable but thats as high as it will go before things start acting weird. I wasnt able to get the CPU to rename properly and after following the steps posted it now reads as: 3.6Ghz "10-Core

Seems like the name was cut off or didnt handle the quotation right. I followed the steps in this order: downloaded cpu_name_v2.sh.zip, ran the first command then the second (was I supposed to run them as one command?), then created the final command
cd Downloads
./cpu_name_v2.sh "10-Core Intel Core i9-10850k"

Also since about my mac shows a correct serial number is it safe to sign into my apple id?

yeah - I was like .... how - ran it about 7 times -
(just added that I have a NVMe drive) not sure if that matters
in normal tasks is screams and laughs at everything I use it for

Also recorded 2 mono tracks at 88.2khz for over an hour and 40 min striaght - not one hickup. I even tempted fate and opened the internet, messenger...

on my system I did 1152 D-Verbs across 384 Tracks at 32-sample latency for 91% CPU usage. Bonkers.

Nice!
I'm not sure what DAW your using but in the Logic Pro benchmark session you can find online - I got 56 midi tracks, 96KHz 64 sample -I use Harrison Mixbus v6 32C now and it just breezed thru a 42 track session my old rig was struggling to handle (but I can't complain - that build lasted 8.5 yrs with a CPU upgrade a few yrs back).

I've got logic on my system (have been on it since it was C-Labs Notator ;) ) but my bread and butter is Pro Tools.

So my machine (been on for past 4 hrs - light use) just started ramping up the fans and 'kerneltask' is using a bunch of CPU. Disks not reading writing, network doing nothing, automatic updates is off, system is idle.
Activity Monitor CPU usage show a single core running at max, then switches to another (skipping one, as in every other one - so must be related to actual cores? not threads?) - the switching is sometimes in order , sometimes not.... running each at 60% to 100% at a time. mostly focusing on the 2nd Core (or 3rd bar) - this went on for about 10 min until I rebooted

Finally, I had complete my new hackintosh build so thank you @CaseySJ for your guide and all the other helpful info.
So here it is:
Mac OS X Catalina 10.15.6
Motherboard - Gigabyte Z490 Vision G
CPU - Core i7-10700k
GPU - Radeon RX 570 (will change it later onto RX 5700 XT or maybe I should wait for BigNavi :)))
Memory - HyperX DDR4-2666 32768MB PC4-21328 Fury Black (HX426C16FB3/32)
CPU Cooler - Noctua NH-D15
SSD - Samsung 860 EVO 250GB
Power Supply - be quiet! Straight Power 11 750W
Case - be quiet! Silent Base 601 Silver

At a first glance, all works pretty smooth and fast :)
The next steps will be the backup creation and some performance testing.
