My daughter bought the Cool Master Case and gave me a note for Christmas saying something to the effect "Think of all the fun we can have building this together" and gave me a printed copy of this article.

https://nofilmschool.com/2017/06/ha...guide-to-building-your-own-4k-editing-machine

She uses a 13" MBP for school and "tries" to edit 4K on it, but it is not really up to the task. In addition the University's publicly available machines are several years old. So, I started reading and this fantastic web site was called out in the article. Basically, I tried to target a sub $1500 build (including the case my daughter provided). My daughter wanted "cool lighting" but the kits that were cool would have put us over the budget so we settled for some basic lighting.

Summary
First, thanks to the amazing community! This website and the contributors are great! Thank you!

After some research and a post to the forums asking buying advice. I purchased the list above.
I basically followed the main guides and this thread
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/solved-august-built-z370m-ds3h-stuck-on-clover-boot.260117/

The above thread also referred to these two guides that were also helpful.

https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...supported-intel-based-pc.235474/#post_install
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...7-8700k-rx-580-2x-dell-p2715q-4k-60hz.252989/

I created a boot image from Mojave latest 10.14.2

After some learning on my part, I got Mojave installed and booted with the following parameters that came from the first thread.

Audio: AppleALC, Audio ALC887/888b
Disk: None
Misc: Left the greyed out FakeSMC
Network: RealTek RTL8111 v2.2
USB: 7/8/9 Series USB Support, Remove XHCI USB Port Limit, USBInjectAll

Boot: Clover UEFI Boot Mode
Customize Graphics: Inject ATI

System Definition: iMac 18,3

What Works
Everything at the moment.

What Does Not Work
Nothing that I can tell at the moment.

Hello @daditforfree. I’m building kinda the same build. Is it still working everything? AirDrop, AirPlay, Handoff and continuity? Did you have to install something else or everything was working out of the box?

Hi! Did the NVMe SSD play OOB on your setup, or did you have to add a kext or do any modification?

I've got the same MB for a new build, but I can't get my onboard Ethernet working.
