Hi I'm an Editor/Colour Grader and have been mainly using my Macbook for editing but would love to use my old beast again but don't like editing in windows. I want to create a dual boot system of OSX for editing and then a Windows boot for gaming. I have all the parts listed bellow but would love to know any potential issues if I were to attempt to Hackintosh.

CPU - Intel 3930k (Sandy Bridge E)
COOLING - NZXT X52
MB - Asus P9X79 WS SSI CEB LGA2011
RAM - Kingston Beast 32gb 2400mhz
GPU - Stock 780ti or Palit 780ti
SSD1 - Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB (Windows Boot)
SSD2 - Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB (OSX Boot)
SSD3 - Kingston HyperX 3K 480GB (Games/Editing Essentials)
SSD4 - Plextor - M8Pe 512GB PCI-E (Current Project (Footage etc)
HDD1 - Western Digital 3TB Green (Storage)
HDD2 - Western Digital 3TB Green (Backup)
PSU - Corsair HX Platinum 1200W
CASE - Corsair 600T

As you can see the some parts are quite a few generations between each other and so I'm not sure how much of an affect this would have. I attempted a Hackintosh a few years ago and got it to boot a few times but the endless troubles saw me angrily instal windows and give up but I want the best of both worlds and remember this place being the holy grail of such requests.

p.s. I am aware I should be shot for underusing such good hardware.
