Could you be awesome and check my build plans + answer some questions? Thanks much!!!

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am fairly new to this whole thing so I am going to dive right in.  Please pardon my lack of tech lingo.

 

I am an AVID mac user... Love it so much.  However do to budget and needs it is time for me to custom build a pc.  My goal is to have a computer that I can boot into windows, or OS X whenever I want. 

 

An important thing is I want to make sure having my pc being a macintosh will not hurt or risk and part of the Windows part of the computer.  I wish for it to be able to run just like (or close to) how it would without mac OS X also on it.

 

I guess I have two parts

 

Part A (My Build)

Here is the list: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Cubby208/saved/#view=6smBD3

CPU: i7-5820k (6 core, superthread 3.3gHz
GPU: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980 (GDDR5)
RAM: Crucial 16gb 2x8 (DDR4 2133) (288-pin dim)
Motherboard: MSI X99s  (intel x99)

HardDrive: (would get two ssd's and 1hdd (each of the ss'ds would be a boot drive, then the hdd would be partitioned) 

A. SSD  Samsung 850 EVO

B. HDD Segate Baracuda

Wireless: Rosewill  ( N900PCE)

Everything look good?

 

 

Part B (questions)

1.  Is their risk when doing hackingtosh? Can I permanently damage a part?

2. Do I need a sound card on my build for mac to use, or can it use the motherboards?

3.  I have heard sound doesn't quite work.... Is this true?

4.  What does it look like when you turn on your computer with windows and OS X on it?

5. Could running OS X on it cause overlocking? I am avoiding doing that at all costs.

6. In my OS X part would plugging in a compatible keyboard still work?

7. Good tutorials on this?

 

Thankyou so much guys! It means a lot that you look at this kind of stuff.  Hopefully someday I will be good enough at this to do the same.

    • Hi guys I've installed Yosemite Zone 10.10.1 on my PC who has the following specs: CPU: FX-8850 GPU: R7 260X MOBO: 990FXAUD3 REV 4.0

      I installed yosemite zone 10.10.1 without any problem and successfully installed the ethernet drivers with the PKG i found in the downloads section of hackintosh zone, I wanted to update to 10.10.5 to install the R7 260X drivers which i can download from the site but now when i enter my bootflags: npci=0x2000 and PCIRootUID=1 and I choose my ssd from chameleon bootloader it boots up and I can see it starts to load stuff when i put -v  but then the screen goes black and the system just reboots. Pls tell me how to fix thanks in advance.
    • Hi DAFFY,   Yes. High Sierra is actually installed on a Z270-F from Asus ROG. Everything's good with it.
    • Dear Community,   First of all I would like to apologise for my horrible English knowledge.   Well, I have one main problem with my hackintosh.   The first and most annoying problem is gIOScreenLockState 3. I've just tried some kexts but still this problem. Now, if I start without -v I just get black screen.   Thanks for reading,   TheXeno      
    • Can anyone specify the best or minimum NVidia GPU for Yosemite OS? Can someone list it? including the best GPU that can be supported with the nvidia web drivers. Does GT730 is supported? I only have DDR3 slot for my motherboard.
    • Thank you for your immediate response :)
