Maximus IV Gene Z with Asus gtx 680 DC CU II 4gb

Recommended Posts

HI, this is my first post, am really very thankful to Niresh and his team for presenting us the OS in such a way that it is running on a windows pc efficiently and without much of a problem.

 

To start am trying to build a hackintosh for quaite a long time starting from the snow leopard, the failure rate was always more than success, have tried a lot of distris avaiable on net.

 

I had an AMD setup and after long trying got sucess with running snow leopard on it, with awesome visual quality, then i wanted to upgrade my system so that i can get a better feel of it, and bought crosshair V and a 960t but then i was unable to install the os on this system, then i took one low end intel setup intel e8400 with msi p45 mobo, everything was picture perfect, it worked for me for around 3-4 months then again upgraded to evga x58 sli le mobo and intel 920, it was a beast setup but there was an issue with gpu, and Audio. I bought an external creative x fi sound card, but aftr some time i got maximus IC Gene Z and intel 2600k which is my current setup.

Intel 2600k [goes to 5.3ghz but not stable]

Asus DC CU II Gtx 680 4Gb

Kingston Hyper x Blue- 2x 4gb

WD Black- 750 gb

WD Green- 2TB

WD AV GP- 3tb

OCZ vertex- 120gb [for windows]

SVG Tech HOC 40- cooler

Corsair AX 750

6 Thermal take HIgh Airflow fans and NZXT Sentry II to control all of them

Cosmos S cabinet.

 

Reason of mention this rig, its not a show off, just to say that its a gaming and over cloking rig, but Niresh Maverick has turned this into a Mac pc....

 

This time i have the smoothest install of the OS with now hickups, just default options selected while installation and then -v -x while booting and then Multibeast installation for the GPU.

 

and now am playing a few games on it also... Tomb Raider, really supprised with the awesome game play experience, and sound quality, and also downloading Max Payne 3.. so in a nutshell enjoying the os and thansks a lot to the person who has helped me doing this.

 

Now i am again planning to upgrade the GPU, may be from GTX 680 to Asus R9 290, now fingers crossed hoping that i dont have to make a fresh install of OS and the card has got support .

 

thanking you, and sorry for making this lengthy.
