My Custom Mac Pro

  • Built a custom hackintosh in a case that looks very Apple. If you're new to hackintoshes, don't build in this case. It was gnarly.

    One of the most complex builds I've done. This will probably be the only hackintosh i build this year. Thanks for watching!

    The fact that these machines need a power supply of 500w and my laptop works with 90w, means that desktop computer consume on average 3-5 times more electricity than laptops?

    lol complaining about no space but that's his fault for picking a small case

    Edit: Also, wtf he chose a mouse because it has a USB-C port, just wtf
    Not hating, but some hasty decisions were made in the build

    • Michael Kinder
      Michael Kinder Před 21 dnem

      @Aaron He's the one that picked the case. ITX is small as is, but he obviously shouldn't be complaining about how cramped it is because of the form factor he chose. They're all going to be cramped. He had the option of picking other cases (and there are thousands of other cases out there). I was just pointing out that he was complaining about having no space despite knowing that the form factor is small as is. Also, he says (about the mouse), "the main reason I'm using it is because of the USB-C connection". That's not a good reason to use a mouse. I would prefer to use a mouse that actually provides useful features. Sure, if USB-C was the only I/O available on the computer then I would understand, but if you look at the motherboard he used, there's literally only one USB-C port and the rest are type-A. The mouse looks cool, don't get me wrong, but just saying you picked it because it utilized USB-C is somewhat a little unnerving to me. I'm a big fan of USB-C, and I'm sure it's going to continue to be well-adopted in the near future, however there are some other great options in terms of mice that he could have picked.

      @Michael Kinder how is it his fault for picking a small case? he was going for a mini itx build, and the most mac like possible. Obviously aesthetic and size was a priority. The case was not perfectly designed and he wanted to let his viewers know about the dimentions. and if you have multiple mouse that are around the same, and one has a functionality that you particularly like, of course you are going to pick it. he didnt pick it solely cause of usb c, he picked it because it was one of the few mouse that he liked that has a usb c connection

    • MrSteel Nutz

      @Michael Kinder idk everyone have their priorities i guess, i barely have a mouse that works so I'm no one to judge

    • Michael Kinder
      Michael Kinder Před 22 dny

      @MrSteel Nutz I don't have a problem with USB-C, but the fact that he chose it simply for that reason is pretty ridiculous. Would you choose a mouse solely because it has USB-C?

      MrSteel Nutz Před 22 dny

    You ever come round to selling this thing and moving on to a new build should post it up here id be really interested think you did an amazing job👌🏽 one question i have tho is when you said you can put a large gpu in it yes? What was the problem with putting the larger one in you mentioned server power? Thanks

    For professionals considering a Hackintosh: In a long term view a Hackintosh is way more expensive as a real Mac. Energy consumption is extremely high and will cause high bills from your power supplier. All the small things making your life easier you get with a new Mac. WLAN, Bluetooth etc will cause further expenses. Furthermore you have to have a fully prepared back-up disk, running exact the same configuration in case you screw the next update (well, you better do so with every computer). You risk being put down right in the middle of a project! There will be no company being held responsible and no quick solution for a substitute. You have to get the machine running again on your own while you should earn money. Prepare yourself with a fully equipped substitute, thus meaning more expenses. Building a Hackintosh needs way more than average IT knowledge and the many hours you put in is time without income.
    Buy a new Mac and you can start making money almost instantly. A Hackintosh is in my opinion a fun project for geeks having time on their hand and some cash.

    Good build Dave. That's a very nice case. I wouldn't personally use iTX. As I prefer expanding and adding to my machine as time progresses. I hope you are still using this machine as it's definitely got great specs.

    J'ai l'habitude d'utiliser linux, y compris en ligne de commandes... et j'ai tenté de monter un des mes SSD en hackintosh en suivant plusieurs tutos, tout ce que j'ai réussi à faire c'est de bousiller mes boots et dû réinstaller mon archlinux et windows. Vraiment, faut le mériter son hackintosh ! Je n'ai pourtant qu'un i3 8100 sur une mobo MSI B360M GAMING PLUS avec 16gb de ram et clover : il ne détectai pas mon système mac sur la clé.

    Too bad wifi, bluetooth or airdrop isn't doable on hackintoshes, I'd build one in a heartbeat. I have similar components running Linux while I attempt to ween myself off of Windows 10.

      It's actually possible, but you need very specific wireless cards that might not work on some motherboards because they're designed for laptops, but you can get around that by using adapters from eBay.

    Dave just a recommendation since AMD is coming out with new CPUs I think that you should update the PC to AMD Ryzen 9 3800X and Asus ROG Strix X570 Crosshair Impact its a DTX Board with awesome audio and update the GPU to Mini RTX 2070 i guess thats from Zotac or Gigabyte
    EDIT: Noctua is also coming out with new Black Fans
