Build Attempt: ASRock Z390, i9-9900K, Radeon RX 5600 XT in a Cougar QBX Mini ITX

My work in progress.


I want to build an edit machine (Premiere and Davinci) that will boot in Windows and OSX-I mainly work in OSX. I originally was hoping to build in an NCase M1, but I don't I can get one for under $350 off ebay or within months firsthand. SO, I'm gonna go with Cougar QBX. Still sorting it out. I'm happy about saving money but I like the M1 so much its soooo cool (open to other case suggestions).

A quick overview based on forum guidelines but the more comprehensive setup is up on pcpartpicker. I'll update as I refine.

  • CPU: Intel Core i9-9900K 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor
  • GPU: Sapphire Radeon RX 5600 XT 6 GB PULSE Video Card
  • RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-2666 CL16 Memory
  • Motherboard/Laptop model: ASRock Z390 Phantom Gaming-ITX/ac Mini ITX LGA1151 Motherboard
  • Audio Codec:
  • Ethernet Card:
  • Wifi/BT Card: (if available)
  • What guide/tool followed: [Links and/or names, links preferably]
  • What part I got an issue with: [Describe your issue WITH pictures attached if possible]
  • What files/config I am using:
  • Extra Info: This is my first Hackintosh but I have build computers and have been Frankensteining my 2012 MBP for years (16GB RAM, 2 1tbSSDs, replaced wifi card, so I have those little screw drivers. Also I have nearly seen the entire run of Mr. Robot twice.

Anyways, there appears to be an issue with the GPU but I think it's fine. I saw the 5700 work in it. I will need to get new fans picked out. Though there is supposed to be so much more room inside.


I'll move on to the hacking after I lock this in.
