Description

This is my first build in ages.

I've did 6 months of research for making a Hackintosh compatible system and good hardware to be able to keep this one for 4 or 5 years top.

I have a dual boot system with macOS and Windows 10. Everything works perfect!

I have recycled a hard drive and the graphics card from my previous computer and I will upgrade them soon (I hope :P). Probably is going to be an Asus GTX 1060 6gb Strix because the cosmetics :)

Also I need to work harder on cable management to get something like this awesome build https://es.pcpartpicker.com/b/sMBPxr

UPDATE #1: Geekbench results running in macOS Sierra. https://browser.primatelabs.com/v4/cpu/1410788

UPDATE #2: Got the Asus Strix GTX 1060 6GB :)

UPDATE #3: Added a second Samsung 850 EVO 500GB drive, Blue Yeti Microphone, elgato Stream Deck, elgato Green Screen, Logitech C922 Pro Stream Webcam, Corsaid VOID Pro RGB Wireless Headset, and T300RS GT Wheel

UPDATE #4: Upgraded motherboard to Asus Maximus X Hero and CPU to an i7 8700k :)

PS: Sorry for my English, it's not my main language :)

You used very nice parts. I really like that case. My first thought was that the MB is overkill for the usage, but maybe not. The 27" iMac with similar specs costs around $1600. Is there software to check cpu, temps and fan speeds? I assume you are not using the Asus software.

Thanks! I'm using HWMonitor in macOS to monitor all the temps. Works slightly better than in Windows (I have dual boot for playing too :P).

I will mainly use the computer for programming, but I will also play videogames, so the motherboard is just fine :)

Geekbench reports 5250 single cpu and 15000 multicore and I've seen that this result is a little better than an iMac with similar specs :)

Me too! XD Hopefully in a couple of months a 1060 6gb (I'm not a Pro Gamer) will replace that one :)

Very nice build, and very nice with MacOS. Coming from someone who runs an MBP as their daily driver, and a Win10 build as my gaming machine, this is a nice combination of the two.

Thanks! It is really nice and performs better than a MBP retina with similar specs :)

How did you manage to get the GTX 1060 working on the hackintosh?

Hey! Sorry for the late reply. It's working since last week. Nvidia has updated the drivers and it supports Pascal now. I was using a 950 in the meantime for macOs.

I have a few questions, what are the requirements on the motherboard and parts to run Mac OS and where did you get the is itself? Thanks

Hey did you have any problems with clearance for the vengeance ram? it says the height for that ram is 49mm in height but phanteks shows 48mm clearance with a 140mm fans.

With the ones I've installed not a single problem. There are a couple mm left.

I have dual boot system. macOS for programming and Windows 10 for playing games. I prefer working on macOS because it's a UNIX based OS and it's simplicity over a Linux OS. Hope this helps to understand :)
