Hey I've spent a long time looking over the info on this site and I'm pretty sure this will work out, just wanted to see in anyone can find fault in this build before I take the plunge and buy the parts.

Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
Asus Z170I PRO GAMING Mini ITX LGA1151 Motherboard
Crucial 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2133 Memory
Samsung SM951 512GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive
Asus GeForce GTX 970 4GB STRIX Video Card

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I work on video. My hack is:


i7 6700K @4500

H100i Corsair Cooler

Mother Asus Hero VIII Z170

4x8 Vengenance @3400Mhz

SSD 850 Samsung

RX 480 8 GB

3x3tb Black 7200 RPM in RAID (by soft with Disk Utility, no hardware).


Case NXZT h440

750 watts NXZT


I use to work in Resolve and Final Cut X.


I recommend in your build, GTX 980ti. 970 is very compatible, but... is a GPU for change soon.

      I'm new to hackintoshing.
      I have the following system and I'm a bit confused by all the guides and compatibility issues. Will my system be hackintoshable?
      Motherboard - ASUS M5A78L-M LX V2
      CPU - AMD Athlon II X2 270
      GPU - ATI Radeon HD 5450
      If yes, which guides and software should I use?

      I'm planning on building my first Hackintosh this year and would like to know if my chosen components are compatible and/or right.
      Here's the list:
      1) ASUS P8Z77-V STCOM motherboard
      2) i7-3770k Ivy Bridge
      3) gigabyte GeForce GTX680 2GB WINDFORCE x 2 (SLi)
      4) G.Skill PC3-14900 CL10 RIPJAWS XL (8GB x4)
      5) OCZ Agility3 SSD SATA3 [120GB] x 3
      6) Corsair Hydro Series CORSAIR H100 waterblock
      7) [Thermaltake] VN700M1W2N Overseer RX-I PC Case
      8) Seagate HDD Barracuda SATA3 1TB x 3
      9) MaxRevo EMR1500EGT 1500W/ATX PSU
      Or this:
      1) Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H GEN3 MOTHERBOARD
      2)i7-3770k Ivy Bridge
      3) gigabyte GTX670 UDV D5 2GB X 2 (SLi)

      The second build works out almost $1500 cheaper ($4120 vs $2690)
      I don't know which OSX is the best for this setup.
      Any comments or info regarding this build would be appreciated.
