Copying this over from the other major forum as things seem pretty dead over there. Didn't see a dedicated "builds" forum here so hope this is the right spot. People on other social media recommended coming here. Alright, so the build has commenced, just waiting on the power supply (ended up not realizing that I bought the compatible power brick for the HDPlex 400w and then bought the PicoPsu 160, so that is going back and HDPlex is on its way) and monitor to get here. Found a smoking deal on an Acer-K272HUL-Dbmidpx 27" IPS display through Newegg ($216 shipped to my door) that has gotten great reviews, be careful when looking for this as the EBmidpx (different model) looks the exact same but is a TN Panel and comes up in many of the searches. Anyways, here is specs for final build... - Mobo - ASRock Z370m-itx/ac [$120 amazon] - RAM - Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 8gb [$49 amazon] - WiFi/BT - Lenovo Broadcom BCM94352Z [$13 ebay] - SSD - Samsung EVO860 1tb [$128 amazon] - CPU - Intel Core i5 8400 [$185 newegg] - Cooler - Noctua L9i [$40 amazon] - Case - Wesena ITX4 v3 [$97 perfect home theater] - PSU - HDPlex 400w [$95 hdplex] - PSU Brick - Dell PA-9E 240w [$37 ebay] - Monitor - Acer K272HUL 27" IPS [$216 newegg] Total: $883 (shipping included in prices, most were free shipping) This build will be mainly for your everyday computing needs, paying bills, watching YouTube videos and the occasional light photo editing session (have other expensive hobbies now so photography has fallen to the wayside). This is coming from a mid-2011 iMac 21.5" base model that is slowly dying (getting graphical artifacts on a constant basis now and the occasional sudden reboot). The iMac is no longer compatible with any new Mac OS upgrades (no Mojave) so I figured she had a good life over the last 8yrs and it was time to pick-up something new. Since I was fairly unimpressed with the specs for the money with regards to the new Mac Mini's I figured this would be a good chance for me to do a hackintosh. Install will be a Vanilla High Sierra build, since that is the only version I have access to on my iMac. From my research I have downloaded the following kexts for install. - Broadcom Fix (both the firmware repo and firmware patch) - IntelMausiEthernet - WhateverGreen - Lilu I am using the two following builds on the other forum as my baseline as they are very similar builds to mine. Suneys Mini Cube from the other forum and the Tiny But Might build from the same forum. With that said, I plan to use Morgonaut's guide from YouTube to build the hackintosh up (hopefully next weekend). Once everything is running stable in High Sierra I will hopefully be able to update to Mojave without any major issues and then keep moving forward with life. So, am I forgetting anything?
