I am planning on making a budget-ish Hackintosh to replace my aging Mid-2009 MacBook (An AWESOME machine, definitely gonna keep it after so I have an OS X laptop for school/travel). I am simply wondering if the following parts are compatible. From what I can tell, they are, but with Hackintoshing, ya never know. Thank you!

(Also I know some of the parts may not make sense, but Im using this for non-graphics intensive workloads, so ram mattered to me more than Graphics.)


Intel Core i3-4170 3.7GHz Dual-Core Processor
Gigabyte GA-B85M-DS3H-A Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Kingston ValueRAM 2GB (1 x 2GB) DDR3-1333 Memory
G.Skill Value Series 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1333 Memory
G.Skill Value Series 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1333 Memory
Hitachi Deskstar 7K2000 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Logisys CS206BK ATX Mid Tower Case w/480W Power Supply
Cooler Master SickleFlow 69.7 CFM 120mm Fan

I'm not sure about the RAM configuration (are you just trying to use a 2GB stick you already have laying around?) but everything else should work together with OS X just fine.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP! The extra ram is just to squeeze the very last dollar from my budget, haha.
