  1. Unique topic title about a Hackintosh Pro Build

    Thanks a lot. Thats been helpful. just trying to find my way around. =)
  2. Hey Guys, I wanted to know whether I can get away with building a Hackintosh with these components. CPU - i7 970 6 Core 3.2GHz 1366 Socket or an Intel i7-980X Core i7 Extreme Edition 6 Core Processor 3.33GHz MOBO - Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 (rev. 2.0) X58 Chipset 1366 Socket RAM - 24GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz (6x 4GB) PSU - Corsair Enthusiast TX750 750W CPU Cooler - Corsair Hydro H80 Liquid Cooling System BOOT - OCZ Vertex 120GB SSD HDD - Samsung Spintpoint 1TB (x2) OPT/D - Sony Optiarc CASE - Corsair Carbide 400r Black GPU - Gigabyte Radeon 6870 1GB MONITOR - 27" Apple Cinema Display & Dell 30" U3011 Keyboard & Mouse - Apple Wired & Magic Mouse CAM - Logitech C910 HD Webcam Additional Firewire 800 Card Bluetooth adapter thing. I want to use this bad boy as my main render machine. I have been told not to build a Hackintosh because of stability, but after doing research, a Hackintosh is pretty good for how much you actually pay. I want to be able to use it while my iMac is being occupied by other members of the house. I have been doing my research for about 1 month now, I think I am ready to make the orders but I then came across the Intel i7-980X Core i7 Extreme Edition. I want to know if anyone has had any experience installing this CPU and was it successful? I want to be able to over-clock the CPU to 4GHz and Ram to 1866MHz. The programs that I use the most are Cinema 4D, Maya, Premiere Pro, & After Effects. I have been told that this build is on the slight Overkill side, but hey if it works why not? :wink2: I promise I will try my best to use EVERY core EVERY GHz EVERY GB.. any advice or tips would be a massive help indeed. Thanks for reading.
