Considering your system specs as you listed are pretty Ideal for Hackntosh I have to say that your problem must be whats call PBKC. There is no reason your system should not work, and I just do not see you getting this Manny bad hardware items since you have swapped them out. Have you even bothered trying to boot windows to test the hardware under an OS designed to run on your hardware?I'm officially pulling the plug on this build guys... this just isn't worth the hassle and stress. It's pretty much to the point of finding a needle in a haystack and I'm almost 99.9% sure it's hardware related unless that 00.1% is some kind of software issue that I'm totally oblivious too. It can't be this difficult to get this thing up and running without it shutting down randomly. If you kept up with this thread you know I've tried everything.
I'm going to be getting a refund on my processor from Intel and I think I can request a refund from Gigabyte for the MB since it's under warranty as well. Still not sure about the ram and power supply, I will be checking into that today. The graphics card is the newest part I have so I don't think that's the problem. I'm just going to get as much money back as I can and start fresh.
My last question on this is, what would you suggest parts wise? I want to build around the RX 580 and either a new 8700K or maybe an i9 9900K. I just want a rig that's as hassle free as possible and easy as possible to get up and running quickly as I've been using this as my main work computer (I'm a graphic designer and musician).
Lastly, thanks so much for being patient with me and doing all you can to help. I don't know what I would have done without this site and the knowledge you guys have.
