Hello,

This is going to be my first hackintosh build and I'd like to run Mojave with all Apple features working (ie Airdrop, iMessage, Audio etc). It's geared towards heavy photo editing and some 4k video editing.

Do you see any issues with the build as I've ordered it? Or any suggestions on replacement parts to save $ or performance? Hoping to put it together this weekend. Thanks for your help!

Hi Maverik884 How did your installation go? I am having the same mother board

MSI MPG Z390M GAMING EDGE AC mATX Motherboard
Intel i7-8700K Processor
WD S750 NVME 250 250GB SSD.

With BIOS 1.2 Version the NVME gets detected. with BIOS E7C04IMS.130 and E7C04IMS.140 latest NVME assert error. so had to keep the BIOS to 1.2 version only
