Another Hackintosh Setup


3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So, I have sold my macbook pro, no longer have use for a laptop and have decided I wanted to go back to a desktop.


But, I wasn't ready to give up osx, building a hackintosh is the obvious next step.(one that can also dualboot, cause I still need windows sometimes)


I've been reading some topics on this board, some were pretty outdated, and others just weren't what I was looking for.


So if u have time, please read through my build, and give me feedback.

Any help is appreciated!



I've been reading alot about what components work and which ones don't, so I've come up with these 2 builds:


1) (built around a P55 chipset 1156 socket)



Intel® P55, ATX, 2x PCIe x16 v2.0, 1156


Intel Core i5-760

4x 2800 MHz, 4x 256 kB, 8192 kB, Lynnfield


Corsair 8GB DD3-1333 Quad-Kit


NVIDIA GeForce GT 240, 1024 MB, 128 Bit, PCIe x16 v2.0


€ 501,60*

2) (built around a X58 chipset 1366 socket)

-> I started making this and already came at +800euros just for mb, ram, cpu and gfx. So I decided to ditch this build



I'm unsure if I will notice the difference between if I make a better build, I'll mainly use the hackintosh for regular every day use, some gaming and photoshop...

So perhaps go for a better series GFX in build one?


My main concern is compatability though.


any dutch people in here that have a suggestion for a sharply priced shop?
