Hackintosh computer for sale

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am selling my 2009 hackintosh because I finally built my 2006 Mac Pro hack.


This is a very unusual computer because I only build the best when I do build.


It has a Cooler Master Cosmos 1000 case which can hold up to (6) 3.5" disks.


It has a Gigabyte EX-58-UD5 motherboard and an Intel i7 920 quad core cpu that runs stock at 2.7 Ghz. The case is powered by a UCP 900 Watt power and supplying the CPU is water cooled by a Corsair water cooler. This box was overclocked to 4.2 Ghz for a short time.


The video card is a EVGA 9800 GTX-512 and has 16 GB Ram with memory cooling fans.


The computer is equipped with (2) DVD burners - one standard and one Blu-Ray burner.


The Cosmos case supports (6) 3.5" disks and comes with a full complement of disk carriers.


The computer comes with a 500 GB and a 250GB SATA 6 GB interface.


I am also supplying two versions of the MacOS X operating system Leopard and Snow Leopard CD's.


I am asking $800.00 for this computer as I put about $1200 into building it in 2009.

You really think the price will only drop 400$ after 7 years?


We're now on 6th gen (and soon 7th gen) intel CPUs.


Your GPU is much less powerful then anything that you can buy today.


The most valuable part of your setup is actually the motherboard, since many people put hex-core Xeons into these X58 boards. Nothing else is even near valuable.

Mobo: $70

CPU: $50

GPU: $40

BD burner: $35

HDD1: $45

HDD2: $25

Case: $70


Total: $335... let's say $350 

And i hope you will wipe the HDD with OS X installed before selling that PC.

You can get newer for cheaper, honestly.


It only has SATA2 ports not SATA3 like you said, only has PCIe 2.0 slots and no USB3.


Its also not the easiest to put OSX on anymore. DO people even use ODD drives anymore?

      Hi all. I'm after a bit of help with installing Sierra GM.
      The system this post pertains to is an EX58-UD5 with Nehalem i7 920 and Nvidia 480 GTX, all working perfectly since the snow leopard days. Updates have always been a case of clicking update and waiting, until now that is!
      I'm running 10.11.6, I've updated clover to r3726 (latest build from sourceforge), I've downloaded Sierra from the app store, clicked install, rebooted, selected the install media. Grey screen with beach ball/spinner. I can move the mouse, the system sleeps and wakes but just doesn't bring up the installer.
      So I updated fakesmc to 6.20.1410 (the latest I could find from HWsensors). Same issue
      This is usually what happens when fakesmc doesn't get loaded, but seeing as the install media is read only I can even load fakesmc through single user mode on the way in. I can't even run kextstat as it doesn't exist on the installer.
      I then created a USB with createmedia --nointeraction, looked on the USB and theres no sign of S/L/E or L/E to dump fakesmc into. So I put my working EFI folder (with updated clover and fakesmc, boots 10.11 ok) onto the USB. I also put my dsdt on there in the root and in ACPI/patched. Same issue, grey screen.
      I have tried booting with nv_disable=1 which results in the same grey screen with beach ball/spinner but at a reduced resolution.
      So what I plan to do next is to recreate the installer using the restore method and put fakesmc somewhere that is loaded by the kernel, but before I do I wanted to ask, does this sound like a fakesmc problem or something else.
      I can't see why clover would not be injecting fakesmc but I can't run kextstat from single user mode as it doesn't exist on the installer.

      This is the guide I am following:
      Step where I boot from prepared usb gets to some point and gets stuck. I have to hard reset, and cmos resets every time.
      On my Usb there are following files (attached image 1)
      and the boot process gets to here (image 2)
      My specs: 10.6.8./ Gigabyte Ex58-ud5 F12 / i7-920 / 12Gb DDR3 / GTX260
