Gigabyte X58A UD3R Motherboard
3.46 6 Core Xeon Intel
12GB RAM
Bluetooth/Wifi on my T919 Fenvi PCI card
Alpine Bridge TB3 Card Modded so I got USB 3.1 and TB3 at around 1200MB/S
Magic Keyboard and Trackpad
1 TB SSD + 16TB RAID
Monterey
6900XT GPU

Built it in 2010 before I knew about hackintosh. Ran windows. Then stumbled on TonyMac, and it all worked out with a lot of debugging over the years. I do film editing on it for work and audio production (Pro Tools and Davinci).

My two oldest Hacks are now upstairs along with my Mac PPC G5. Top is Mini-ITX 2 in its Rosewill RS-MI-01-BK case, below is Mini-ITX 1 in its Apex MI-800 case. (The only difference between the two stock cases is the front bezel.) The cover of the top computer has been "hacked" to allow use of a BioStar AMD RX 560 graphics card. The earlier, lower case contains a Gigabyte Nvidia GT 1030 card, which fits inside without mods.

Still have my X79 (Asus P9X79WS) 4930K working like a charm on 12.6 with Power Management
Have also an old HP Elitebook 8760w on Sierra with moded Atheros card for whitelisting Bios compatibility

My oldest, although not in 100% current use, is my first build. This was probably the most fun I had building a machine. It took a TON of planning, had to save up a fair amount of cash, and work on it in my spare time between school and work. The only updates it has had is I swapped to a different board to be able to install Catalina awhile back.

Lately my Hackintoshes have been on Lenovo laptops for my girls who are 6 and 9. They're inexpensive and easy to Hsckintosh. Their latest ones as Lenovo T460S models.

It wasn't ever a daily driver but a great secondary machine to use for stuff when I was letting my MacPro crunch through video conversions. I still fire it up from time to time but most often it sits on the shelf next to an actual QuickSilver G4.

I may do another resurrection to it and see of I can get Big Sur or Monterey running on it with OpenCore. Anyone have a working OpenCore EFI for an i5-650 and an nVidia GT 610 or nVidia GeForce 740?

I just don't have the time for projects as much anymore. I work two full time jobs, two kids and married.

I'm still using my Dell 9020 MT hackintosh as my main computer. Its running mojave via clover, and does everything i need from a computer. I have thought about building a new hac and trying opencore but thats as far as its gone! I have zero problems with this hackintosh, it just works!
Has a 4790k cpu, mojave and windows running on separate ssds, new silent case, 32gb ram, rx580. Built as per trs96's excellent instructions. Cost very little to set up.
I do play games on windows with steam but enjoy older retro games so have no issues running at 1440p. Newest game would probably be rage2!
