HELP Building a Powerful / Quiet Hackintosh

Hello all,

I'm a narrator and I'm looking to upgrade my current MacBook Pro into a Hackintosh for audio editing (also able to play games as well if possible.)

My goal here is to find something essentially extremely quiet (my current mac gets up to 4000 RPM's while recording sometimes), that can run Adobe Audition or Pro Tools recording for multiple hours. I use an Apollo and my space is completely acoustically treated, it's much more comfortable than an isolation booth and why I'd rather invest in the best unit to allow me to move to and from my work stations as quickly as possible, as my acoustics are pretty much perfect. Unfortunately, that means keeping the unit in the same room (since there is only one room). I know Bequiet Fans are an option as well as Fractal Define Case but would love help on other options as well as the CPU, GPU, Motherboard, etc.

Can anyone provide suggestions with various price points involved (Middle of the road and more Expensive). I would love any and all insights you might have on my venture here to eliminate fan noise from recordings with also having a powerful computer.

Thanks and best regards,

Does anyone else feel like they shouldn't use Hackintosh as their main setup? (Unwarranted concern/feeling) What are the long term cons of Ryzentosh?

This might sound a bit strange, so I'll preface this by saying that.

I have Windows on my main computer (3900x / 5700xt) and dual booted with Catalina (OC). MacOS feels smooth and runs super well! Everything works except handoff , airdrop etc; (I don't have Wifi Card installed). But I can't help but feel I shouldn't dive in and use the hackintosh as my main OS due to it not being "official". I guess the feeling comes as if I won't have the full performance or something, I'm not sure. Or as if there is a downside I am not seeing yet, I just stay away from using it as a main OS.

As strange as this may be, I guess I wanted to ask, is there any long term (or short term) cons or annoyances to stop me from using it as the main OS? Should I dive in and be happy with it as I much prefer MacOS (I have Macbook, ATV, iPad Pro, iPhone, Apple Watch etc;). I am using AMD 3900X although it seems to work flawlessly in regular use (haven't really tested performance apps).

Is there a noticeable performance hit in some apps like Adobe suite? I've heard LR doesnt work, but it seems to work for me.

Also am I a bit insane for my thinking? haha

Please help me dive into Hackintosh and enjoy the hard work of this awesome community!!

Also for those who dual boot, when do you tend to switch back to Windows? What for?
