Hi everyone, this is my first post and my first build. My old 2010 iMac recently died. So I was really excited about the new Mac Minis, but I couldn't come to terms with the high prices, especially once you spec it up. I then set out to build a Hackintosh similar to a spec'd up Mac Mini 2018 at half the price. All in all it's been a great learning experience, and I have it up and running pretty smoothly. There are a few items that remain to be fixed, and I'm sure my config.plist file could be tweaked and improved but I'm really happy with it so far.

Working:
USB
Shutdown/Reboot
Sleep/Wake
Audio with VOODOO
iMessage

Not working:
N/A

Didn't test yet:
USB C

I attached my CLOVER folder (removed serial number). If anyone has any suggestions to improve my config or ideas to fix shutdown/sleep, feel free! I tried using FixShutdown but it didn't do anything.

EDIT (2018-12-14): thanks to @Shridhar in post #3 for the fix for shutdown and sleep. I switched from AptioMemoryFix-64.efi to OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi and it worked! Updated CLOVER folder attached now.

@jbrv,
The BitFenix Prodigy case is for an ITX size motherboard. How did you fit your mATX motherboard in the case?

use osxaptiofix2drv instead of AptioMemoryFix-64.efi in clover. that's how I solved my sleep and shutdown issue.
Amazing, that worked right away to fix both shutdown and sleep! Thank you!

Type, sorry. Thanks :)
Your links to Amazon and Newegg go to the D3H version of the Gigabyte motherboard instead of the DS3H model. You may want to correct those so that your readers don't buy the wrong one. There is no onboard DP output on the D3H version. That is important to have for use with a 4K monitor.
