First Hackintosh. Is this compatible? i5-3570k/Z77 LGA1155/GTX 650 Ti

Recommended Posts

CPU: i5-3570k

 

Mobo: Gigabyte Intel Z77 LGA1155 CrossFireX/SLI Dual Lan Dual UEFI BIOS with Bluetooth 4.0/Wi-Fi Expansion Card GA-Z77X-UD5H-WB WiFi

 

GPU: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 650 Ti OC 2GB GDDR5

 

PSU: Corsair Enthusiast Series™ TX650M High Performance 650W Power Supply

 

Ram: Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory

 

SSD: Samsung 840 Series MZ-7TD120BW 120GB

 

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1 TB 7200RPM

 

Case: Corsair Carbide Series Black 300R Windowed

 

Do you guys see any problems with this build? Any problems with audio? or The sleep function not working properly?

 

I went with that mobo because it had the built in wifi. Is 650W enough?

 

The 650ti only works with OS ML correct?

 

any recommendations?

 

Thanks guys really appreciate your help.

650 and below are Fermi based and only support 2 monitors. 660 and up support up to 4 and 650 could never drive 2 screens properly. What about getting a basic 660. The money you save on the PSU alone should make up the difference.

660 Ti uses the 670 core. Some OEM 660 use the 670 core as well but are not for sale.

Is this mother board GA-Z77X-UD5H-WB WiFi stable with hackintoshes?

 

Ive been looking here: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/HCL_10.8.2#Gigabyte

 

and it doesnt seem to be listed. any thoughts? I would like to go with the newest gigabyte mobo with the integrated wifi.

 

difference between the GA-Z77X-UD5H-WB Wifi vs. GA-Z77X-UD3H?

 

I notice that the UD3H is much cheaper and Ive compared the two mobos on newegg, but dont really see that much of a difference.

Just get the UD5-TH ie the thunderbolt version. Those MB work fine however. The wifi edition just has a wifi card added to the system and you will have to change the wifi card to a supported one.

Hmm, should be far more: with a setup fairly similar to yours (see iHack Workstation in my sig) i get close to 11.200 points!

 

Run Geekbench in 64-bit mode with no app open, other than Geekbench itself. If you get below 10.000 again, see if spotlight indexing is going on. If not, you really should research about Ivy Bridge Power Management. What's your system definition (smBIOS)?

First, let's see if this is really the problem!

 

Click on the Apple logo at the top left corner of the screen and select About This Mac> More Info> System Report, then scroll down the pop-up window and click in extensions at the list located in the left. Search for a next called X86PlatformPlugin.kext: if it's not loaded, then you need to set PM up.

 

All the best!
