Hello everyone,

I want to build a new hackintosh and I think on buy these parts:

Motherboard: MSI H370M Bazooka - (79,99€)
CPU: I7 8700 - (360€)
Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H45 - (49,99€)
Tacens Anima APII750 ATX 750W - (24,99€)
Crucial Ballistix Sport LT DDR4 8GB CL16 - (61,99€ x2) (16gb)
Aerocool RIFT RGB USB 3.0 (Case) - (35,99€)
Seagate BarraCuda 3.5" 1TB SATA3 - (46,59€)
Samsung SSD EVO 850 250GB - (50€)
PCE-N15 Wifi PCI-E - (15€)


I want to use the integrated graphics and install OSX Mojave.

my concern is the MSI H370M BAZOOKA. will this motherboard work fine?

i don't want to spend more than 800€.

thanks!

Bazooka has good specs for Ethernet and audio, easy kext ready solutions. I have 2 MSI mobo and they are easy to setup for Hackintosh.
CFG Lock disabled is in Overclocking CPU settings, and XHCI handoff enabled are in Perepherals. It should be fine.

The WiFi may be an issue. There’s a fix for the TpLink N900 if you can get one $35 US. Or a more expensive option would be the Fenvi models listed in buyers guide.
