  1. Did anyone do a G5 mod placing the motherboard vertically? (and by that I mean having the openings in the bottom). I'm considering such a mod currently. You keep the exterior of the G5 unchanged (maybe except for the ports at the back that you could put an aluminum strip over maybe with USB 3.0). It accommodates larger motherboards, mounting it this way means you should be able to squeeze even an E-ATX board in. Power-supply on top, but without a cutout, will be using the existing cutout at the bottom and an internal cable to the PSU on top. Drives in optical bay compartment. The main problem I see with this is that will be hard to find room for intake fans but then again this way the CPU fan would sit almost at the front anyway. Any thoughts?
  2. Haven't seen these in one spot yet, so here's what you'll need if you have this combination of components (A relatively popular one as it used to be featured on logicalincrements.com, but not anymore) For booting into Clover, you'll need the FakeCPUID 0x0306A0. There's no other real, non-complicated way around this. You'll also need the iMac 13,2 SMBIOS (Ivy Bridge Model). Use XNU Power Management instead of AICPM, the boot flag for this is: -xcpm You'll also need some kexts, so go ahead and put these in your EFI folder Audio Chipset: Realtek ALC662 (VoodooHDA - Attached) LAN Chipset: Realtek 8111GR (RealtekRTL8111.kext - Attached) NullCPUManagement.kext (Attached) OsxAptioFix2Drv-64 (Should be installed when you install Clover) BIOS on UEFI defaults, with CSM set to UEFI. With all of this, you should get a working installation up in no time. The rest depends upon your GPU, etc. I went ahead and wrote this up in a couple of minutes just a quick reference, I'll probably add more to this though.

  4. Hello, Sorry for starting a new topic. I know topics like thais one are very frequent but obviously this is a big decision for me I did my research and has decided on these choices. Processor: Intel® Core™ I5-3450 3.1GHz 6MB Cache Processor GPU: GeForce GTX 650 1GB GDDR5 Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-B75M-D3H RAM: Team Xtreem Dark (1 x 8GB) DDR3 1600 CL9 1.5V or Kingston HyperX 4GB8 DDR3 1600MHz Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 SATA 6Gb/s HDD and now to the questions: I am not really sure about the motherboard, will it work without any problem? and can you recommend others pereferbly under($100)? I would be glad if you mentioned more than one becuase some cards might not be available at my local market. About the GPU Which company is better (Gigabyte, Zotech, Galaxy etc)? and is the GTX650 good choice to begin with? If you have any other comment please say, It would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance
  5. Hello guys. This is not my first hackintosh, but this will be the first time to create a hackintosh with thunderbolt. First of all, i have read some info about MoBos with Thunderbolt, but im a bit confused. I need to create a working hackintosh with Thunderbolt 2/3 . At this moment i know that we got 2 options (Correct me if im wrong), -we can get one MoBo and ad a Pcie Card with thunderbolt (only if the chipset is compatible) -we can get one MoBo with thunderbolt integrated via USB-C connectors (like the new Macbook Pro) What are the possible MoBos that have integrated Thunderbolt vía USB (or directly thundelbolt ports)? I have read a lot of buyers guides from some webs , but a lot of that MoBos with thunderbolt enabled, are "discontinued" or without stock Should we only choose Gigabyte MoBos? I Have been too looking at Gigabyte website, and seems that the Chipset Z170 its the only one with Thunderbolt (vía USB-C) ports. Could you help me with these please? Thanks You So Much!
  6. Hi all, I've been using my Hackintosh setup for a few years now with no issues. My current setup is: GA-E35-DS4 4GB RAM 1Tb drive TPlink wifi (detected as airport with AirDrop support) Q6600 + Tuniq Tower Silent PowerSupply PNY 8800GT 512Mb I've been really happy with this hardware - super quiet. I've successfully used it with Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion and now Mountain Lion. Ever since Mountain Lion though, I've noticed the system slow down a bit. I know the hardware is getting older, so I feel like it may be time to start something new. ANYWAY.... Any recommendations on a high performance Motherboard/CPU/VideoCard setup? I'd prefer a smaller physical setup if possible, since my "office space" is limited and my current case is taking up a good amount of space. Thanks for any tips, info, suggestions. My budget is around $600 for motherboard/cpu/video card and i would love to have a motherboard which doesn't require any hacks/dsdt and prefer if sleep worked!
