This is my first Hackintosh build and I’m open to suggestions for improvements if you see any. Decided to do so after my iMac died due to logic board AND GPU failure. Missed the recall window. Apple support suggested I recycle it as a fix so I’m not handing them any more $.

Here’s my part list. Let me know if it looks legit. I’ve been educating myself about the process but I realize it’s easy to miss details and i want to avoid a headache when i start piecing it together. (Note: i used to build win PCs before I switched to Mac so no concern there.)

Primary use care: editing very large images and video.

CPU: i9 9900k 8-core

RAM: Ballistix 32GB DDR4

GPU: RX580 8GB (some confusion here. Looking at Sapphire but i hear stay away from XFX whereas all others work oob? Accurate?)

SSD: 2x Samsung 970 Pro 512 NVMe. Dual boot, one OS per SSD

Mobo: ASUS Rog Strix Z390-E (There are so many Mobo choices I really am kinda up in the air about this one)

PSU: Corsair HX750 Platinum

Case: Corsair Carbide 275R Mid-Tower Gaming Case

Cooling: ? How necessary is this? I will prob overclock some but I will be looking for a Goldilocks zone, not pushing to max.

Monitor: Something realizable and 4K. My current 4K LG dp and DVI ports just died on me after only 2 years. Seemed a common issue.

Side note: I want to start backing up my RAID to Archival BD-R’s. Anyone with internal BD-R drives working on a Hackintosh? Not sure if it will
Complicate things with an internal one vs an external.
