I'd like to have some piece of advice on this build, am I missing something or should I change some parts ?
€2000 is a lot of money for me, so I wanna be sure that I'll be able to make it work.

Thanks in advance !

Hello Adrian !

Thanks a lot for your input, I've updated my shopping cart following your suggestions.

So, you think I can buy all these items without having any major issue installing OSX 10.9 ?

Thanks again !

:)

Belated welcome to the forum Bolos,

I don't foresee any problems with all of the components that you have listed with the two amendments just mentioned. It will be an impressive build, some great components on that list :thumbup:
If the case is going to sit on top of your desk then a 0.9m HDMI should be fine but I have my case under my desk and slightly off to one side. I used a 2m cable as the measured distance I needed was 1.2m

Thank you again Adrian, checkout done!

My case is going to be under my desk too, so I finally came up with the 2m cable.

It feels good to have people like you to help. :thumbup:

Solid looking build! Very similar to my theorized build. I'm having a hard time dropping this kind of money on a machine that isn't made by apple tbh. I just wish that OSX was more bulletproof on hackintoshes.

Hi guys, I've got some news !

I'm actually writing from my Hackintosh !

Received the last parts this morning.

It is soooo fast, really happy about this build.

Just a bit noisey, but maybe I can change the fans speed ?

Excellent stuff, Great to hear that you have it up and running :thumbup:

As for the fans- you may have some UEFI /bios options on your motherboard for PWM fan speed. As Apple build their own hardware and custom bios which PC hardware machines cannot use our other options are limited to using diode to reduce the voltage on individual fans of replacing them with after market fans that run at slower speeds.

Hi Adrian, thanks for your feedback !

I also have another problem, I have no sound. For the moment I'm reading about HDMI audio but it's very hard to understand, lots of information.

Is there an easy way, like sound without HDMI ?

Thanks by advance :)
