Question

Hello everyone :),

 

My name is Michael, and I have been having some issue trying to decide which PC parts will be compatible with OS X Mavericks 10.9 (Niresh Distro of course lol)

 

PC parts that I have chosen so far and I need to make sure that they are compatible...so that is were you (the viewer/helper) comes in :), any help will be much appreciated :D

 

Part list:

 

- Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-GAMING 7 LGA 1150

Processor:          Intel i3-4330 Dual Core 3.5 ghz

- Ram:              Corsair Vengence 8gb Ram DDR3 1600

HDD:                  WD 1TB Blue

- PCU:              Corsair CX 430 Watt

 

So if anyone can help at all try to determine if these parts will work that would be awesome and also please contact me on Twitter @Michaelkintner1 if you have any input please on email me @ Michaelkintner35@gmail.com   also another thing is that I am not sure if the Z97 Chipset is compatible with Niresh Hackintosh, but I hope it is and most Gigabyte Motherboards are supported thankfully :)

Also you might want to use an Intel core i5, graphics are the most important. There are nvidia & ATI cards that work out of the box. You can google those. And when you intalled Niresh, try to make an vanilla install. They work way better than disro's

@sloeberGJ I was wondering what i5 processor to get that has good integrated graphics?  Also I would still want it to be socket 1150 because I really want that motherboard for my Hackintosh build :).  Also I hope that the Z97 chipset is supported by hackintosh Mavericks :).  One more thing...what is Vanilla install I have never heard of it?

@ Oh ok thank you for the info :) and I also heard that MSI Motherbaords can use Hackintosh but you have to modify the bios?  How do you modify the bios to make the MSI motherbaord be compatible?

    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
