  2. Powerful budget Hackintosh for the living room Components used: MSI B250I Pro Mini-ITX Pentium G4600 Arctic Freezer 33 semi passive CPU cooler ASUS Geforce GT1030 8 GB GSkill DDR4-2133 RAM Samsung 256GB PCIe SSD GMYLE Bluetooth USB Silverstone ITX Case PICO Mini ATX 120W My plan was to build a Hackintosh with the best price-performance-ratio to be used as media player in the living room hooked to the TV. For that use it should be silent, fanless at best. So I decided to go for the Pentium G4600 which offers nearly the same performance as the I3-7100 for a much lower price and the MSI B250I Pro Mini ITX board, the cheapest one with M.2 slots for PCIe and Wifi. The Arctic Freezer 33 is my favourite choice as CPU cooler and I’m using it for all my builds. The fan literally never spins up during usual daily usage. For graphics card the fanless GT1030 is the obvious choice as it delivers the best performance with the lowest possible power consumption. Speaking of power: As the Arctic Freezer is too huge for a standard ATX power supply to fit in an ITX case I go for a PICO Mini ATX adapter that allows up to 120 watts on 16 volts, so a common laptop power supply can be used and of course it runs noiseless as wished. Everything works like a real mac, there are no power management, sleep or wake issues. You can even use your Bluetooth keyboard or mouse to wake it and it will sleep well again. It is not necessary to disable USB power via DSDT. For this build I don’t even bother to compile one. This hasn’t happened for years J Of course the installation needs preparation because the Pentium CPU isn’t supported out of the box. You need to configure your UEFI right and get your config.plist for Clover in order before you can start, otherwise macOS will simply kernel panic. Telling it the other way: there is no post installation action required And for those who are planning to use the Intel HD630 instead of a dedicated graphics card: You can’t. It sounds promising at first to have a macOS supported Intel HD on this chip but it seems as if Intel has just branded it this way and in reality using a different architecture. The best you can achieve is to get into desktop by spoofing a Skylake ID but you won’t get hardware acceleration this way. *For this guide I assume that you already know how to prepare a macOS install drive, how to install Clover bootloader and configure it, mounting your EFI partition and so on. You know: the basic skills. If you don’t you’ll find beginners guides for these tasks on the forum.* *CREDITS: Go to all people involved in the hackintosh community. For this guide I searched and tested for days, finding all the bits needed to complete the installation. If you think one or two of the presented solutions here is based on one of your own unique ideas please feel free to tell me and I will add your name here at once of course.

Other cards may work with AppleALC (tested with GT710 and DVI audio works). Nvidia webdrivers Issues Don’t use the designated webdrivers for 10.13.3! They give you extremely poor OpenCL performance what leads to choppy video playback. Instead use NVDAWebPatcher to patch the webdrivers for 10.13.2 and install them instead. I’m not kidding the 10.13.3 drivers are unusable, this step is mandatory.
  3. Hey folks, I recently moved to another country and left my workstation where I lived before. For several reasons I'm about to make a new build, this time on a more tight budget. I was first setting up the usual ATX mid tower setup I usually do, but soon realized I won't ever do any SLI/Crossfire or huge HDD setups in the future while being here. This lead me to some pretty nice ITX builds on partpicker and I dig the idea of a small layout for my limited work space. Also I love the minimal looks of the Corsair 250D Mini case. This is not meant for any gaming, pure low profile workstation. I would want to triple boot though. Since it's gonna be budget I wanna base this build on a Pentium G3258 which to me it seems is widely used for OC budget builds for it's great performance/price ratio. Any suggestions on comparable processors I wouldn't mind though. As for the GPU I first thought about a GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB SC by EVGA because of it's very low TDP and good price/performance. But it still pushed the overall total too high so I thought maybe a cheap Radeon would fit better for OSX anyways. So I ended up flirting with a R7 250 by MSI. My biggest concern, and reason why I'm writing this, is about competitive alternatives to CPU & GPU and the cooling system for over clocking the Pentium. Also the wifi controller on the MSI Z97I AC motherboard is an Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 7260 card. Probably a no-go for OSX? I'm thinking about USB WIFI? I wouldn't mind for one USB less. To boil it down to a short list of components: Pentium G3258 3.2GHz Dual Core OC Silverstone AR06 40.2 CFM CPU Cooler or Corsair H100i 77.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler MSI Z97I AC Mini ITX G.Skill Ripjaws X 1x8GB (so I could buy another one in some future) MSI Radeon R7 250X 1GB GPU Samsung 850 EVO 250GB 2.5" SSD Corsair 250D Mini ITX Tower Case Corsair CX 430W 80+ Semi-Modular ATX PSU I made this list on pcpicker if you want to see parts specs. So regarding my concerns: Do you know if any of this would give me headaches running OSX? (e.g. if I installed an all-in-one water cooler would it be recognized at all by OSX?) Can you think of better alternatives for CPU & GPU? Most mini ITX builds I've seen do use water cooling indeed. Although I've read of enough people who OC well with a heatsink. Do you think the Silverstone would do it? Would you install extra case fans if I went with it? (The case supposedly comes with two from what I read) Thank you for your attention everyone. Any comment is appreciated. Critics won't be flamed. I'm grateful to the community. Kudos Deridjian
