For me, I'm still testing everything from Intel 8 Series to 400 Series. Here's an old thread example of my 8 series "2013 CustoMac Mini" build which still runs the latest MacOS Monterey. Pretty good for an almost 10 year old build. :)

Technically not that old, my Dell 7040 dual boots Windows 11, (Yes Windows 11 on SkyLake!) and Mojave with Clover. Still WIP.

I still use my "old reliable" Z68 Gigabyte motherboard. Very first hackintosh for me.

Sandy Bridge! My oldest system (retired) is my P55M-UD2 build which is my first ever build. We actually started this site based on it:

Currently typing from my 2014 X99 tower. It's gone through some revisions, but still kicking. Originally built with an i7-5820K, it's run every version of macOS since Mavericks got the Haswell-E kernel patch way back when.

Asus X99-DELUXE U/3.1
Xeon E5-2697v3 14C/28T
64GB DDR4R ECC RAM
MSI Radeon RX 580
macOS Monterey 12.5 with OpenCore 0.8.2

I still like the older boards that had some colors in them. Today we're in the Ford Model T era. "Any color you like, as long as it's black."
