Hi All ! (Excuse my poor english, i'm French !)

I'm asking your opinion.

My plan: Get the most powerful Osx86 configuration available on the market today, with an unlimited budget, to vidéo editing (2000$ - 8000$).

The reason: Latest Mac Pro are beginning to be less efficient and are still not equipped with Thunderbolt. In addition, Apple announced the probable end of this model in europe.

- Video editing (Final Cut 7 & 10)
- Sound editing (ProTools etc.)
- Music- Not to play game.Prerequisites:
- Thunderbolt- Firewire 800 or 400.
- At least 16 GB of RAM.- A maximum of Silence (100% passive?)
- A config equivalent or more powerful than a Mac Pro (config max - http://store.apple.c.../family/mac_pro)
- 100% functional with latest version of Mac OS and latest update.

I've not found a motherboard with 2011 socket AND Thunderbolt, I will probably have to fall back on a motherboard in 1155. Ditto for the Firewire 800, which does not fit all motherboards.

I am convinced that this place is where I could get the best advice / quote for this kind of machine.

For the moment, I move into i7-3930K + MB with X79 + 32GO @2133Mz + 4 SSD Disks. but you probably even better idea!

When choosing the config will be done, I will send you news about the construction of this great hackintosh.

Thank you all in advance !

P.S.: if a nice moderator wants to correct my grammar, he does not hesitate!

Hi! Comment allez vous?

Well, both the i7 3930K and the X79 are LGA2011, so no thunderbolt for this setup, as far as i know. What i recommend to you is:

I7 3770K - Gigabyte Z77-UP5-TH dual thunderbolt - AMD 7970 (working with Rampage Dev's guide: http://rampagedev.wo...g-with-full-qe/) - PS Corsair (i like the brand, but use which you trust more), minimum of 700W (1000W would be ideal) - WiFi TPLinh TL4800 - Any water cooling solution of your choice for overclocking.

Best regards!
