So apple has presented a new and updated mac mini a few days ago, and the great news seems to be the use of desktop processors in it, in fact, all the specs seems to match a typical desktop socket 1151 v2 coffeelake system without a dedicated gpu, so i am wondering if the smbios of this machine could be our new smbios of preference for coffeelake desktop machines. So i have created this new topic to discuss about it. Of course we will have to wait to do tests using the first public version of mac os which integrates this smbios, because when every new mac is released it's smbios is available initialy just in a purpose made mac os build and then it's added for all the os builds in the following releases.
So what do you think about the possibility of using this new smbios for desktop coffeelake machines instead of the imac 18.3/18.2 ones?
what do you think about that :

I am looking at building my first vanilla hackintosh to drive a 4K display over Displayport.
Requirements for me are; speed, performance but not gaming. I do realize I included a -K CPU, but the base clock of that model is far larger than the non-K version. (4.2Ghz vs 3.6Ghz)
CPU: Intel Core i7-7700K
MOBO/Case/PSU: AsRock Deskmini 110 Memory: Crucial CT16G4SFD824A NVMe (PCI): Samsung 960 EVO 500GB
Bluetooth/Wifi: to be determined
Any thoughts? Thank you!
Kexts I would certainly need:
- FakeSMC ; to let it think I run genuine apple hardware
- Fake CPUID ; to let it think I run Skylake instead of Kaby Lake
- FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics.kext ; to let it think I run Skylake graphics
- 'Skylake Glitch Fix' (AAPL,GfxYTile) ; no clue why
- VoodooHDA ; to let sound work (I think) AppleALC: native apple audio for non-apple hardware
- IONVMeFamily.kext ; from macos, to let NVMe work at boot.
