BlueEyed build [Still in progress]

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

 

Well... After I bought some Apples and exploded my old android, I wanted to make something new in my working/home place. First time i was installing Mac OSX themes for Windows. I thought it is so hard to install Mac OSX, and when i made some kind of "plan", I backed up my data, downloaded OSX, formatted disk, and tried to start the installation. I had errors like "still waitting for root device", and pci errors, just because I had old hardware. Then, in one great day, my motherboard and power supply burnt out ( It wasn't my fault, there are were energy issues in @ my district ). Then i just thought to build Custom Mac.. just for "test". I am thinking to buy 'real' Mac soon. So i bought the following components:

And Mountain Lion installed without any errors! Great, I made that I wanted!

 

Now, you can see how I was building it.

 

Connected every component and restored Mac OSX 10.8.4 from my Time Capsule.. Tada!

I don't want to change information in 'About this Mac' for now. 

 

 

Well, my pc case has finally arrived!

So, i took it out from box, looks awesome. ( I already attached PSU ).

Let's place mobo and another components inside!

That's how it looks with 'mirror' effect

I want to replace those USB2.0s to 3.0 ones, also, front audio works.

That's how hard drives and PSU are installed in.

I am using HDMI cable, my display has better collibration support for it.

BUT ONE THING THAT I DIDN'T KNEW - It has L.E.Ds inside.

So, i dis-attached some thingies, and made it branded! ;D

This is some my stuff, as disk using, wifi, etc

Hosting second home WiFi network because i can't make this card work with internet ;(

As you can see, it's fine.

Well, i finally made my wifi to see networks. Added 168c,0301. But if it connects it's freezes ;(

Current case is MidTower ATX. It is very small and compactible. More like Micro ATX.

 

Currently, Geekbench shows 7600 points when I'm using 10.9 & 8100 points when I am using 10.8.4. I think the slow part are my HDDs. ( Note, not Solid state drives ).

 

 

I am going to upgrade my specifications soon. I will post every progress there. I am going to make some kind of 'tuning' for my CustoMac. 

 

TODO list:

 * working wifi internet

 * wait for apple & "blue eyed" stickers and buy mirrored acrylic sheet to make it look more awesome!

 * replace usb2.0 by usb3.0

 * make it more quiet

 * (optional) buy ssds

 * (optional) buy more ram memory

 

 

Thanks for watching! Leave comments please! ;p

Nice build!

 

What I would have done with the apple logo is make it into a stensil and reversed it. So the big blue circle becomes covered, but the apple symbol shines blue - like on the back of mac books.

But that's me :P

 

Still looks like a great build

      I just installed. Everything works fine. I'll test final cut pro, premiere pro with 4k footage and get back with you on performance. 
      For now moves like a performant Mac book pro. 
      I installed Catalina first but I could not make the Intel UHD 620 Graphics get proper QE/CI. 
      Mojave is just fine. I want to use this system for quick video editing on the go.
      Geekbench in my signature.  
      If you need any files or have any questions pls ask.

      Hi guys! I really need help right now.
      So I've just updated my Hackintosh to Catalina 10.15.3 with these following specs,

      Z390 Designare
      Core i9 9900k
      RX 590 Nitro + 8gb Gold Edition
      32 GB ram of Corsair RGB Pro

      After the update, I tried to boot and it's a black screen after loading.
      I also have recently updated the WEG and Lilu, but there's nothing new. It's still stuck with a black screen.

      I have attached my Clover below..

      Please help and Thankyou so much!
