Hi,

 

in my attempt to replace my old C2Q system (which ran very fine most of the time) I am looking for am mainboard.

 

So I have two questions and I hope you can help me.

 

-How easy is it to get macOS up and running on coffee lake? The i5-8400 looks interesting to me

Is a lot of patching and fiddling required? I could throw almost any update to my old hack without any hassle and without breaking anything.

 

-Which mainboard would you recommend? Not too expensive (don't need a high-end rig), PCI slot would be nice (for my Soundblaster), USB-C would be a nice bonus but no must-have. Cusomizable fan-control in UEFI (curves and stuff) would be fantastic.

 

I'd pair it with my RX 560 4GB and 16GB RAM.

 

Thank you in advance!

These CPUs (or future faster ones) are my long-term upgrade plan since they currently are too expensive for me, but will give me a nice boost in a few years to prolong the lifespan of this build...
Just as the C2Q gave my C2D system two more years :)
