Best Hackintosh-Friendly Motherboard for Intel 13th Gen Core i5 with AMD Radeon™ RX 6600 XT (or Non-XT)?

Hey Hackintosh community,

I'm in the midst of planning my dream Hackintosh build, and I've set my sights on the Intel 13th Gen Core i5 paired with the AMD Radeon™ RX 6600 XT (or Non-XT) GPU. I'm reaching out to you all for recommendations on the best motherboard that will seamlessly integrate with this setup and deliver a smooth Hackintosh experience.

Here are the specifics I'm hoping to find in the perfect motherboard:

  1. Intel 13th Gen Core i5 Compatibility: Since I'm going with the latest Intel processor, the motherboard must be fully compatible with the 13th Gen Core i5 series.
  2. AMD Radeon™ RX 6600 XT (or Non-XT) GPU Support: I've got my eye on the Radeon™ RX 6600 XT, and I want a motherboard that will work seamlessly with this GPU in a Hackintosh environment. Any experiences or success stories with this particular graphics card on Hackintosh setups?
  3. macOS Stability: It's crucial that the motherboard has proven stability when running macOS, especially considering the additional challenge of integrating an AMD GPU. Any insights into motherboards that have worked reliably with AMD GPUs on a Hackintosh?
  4. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Support: Built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support would be a great bonus. A motherboard with compatible wireless and Bluetooth chipsets that play nicely with macOS will make the build even better.
  5. Audio Compatibility: I want to ensure that the motherboard has solid audio support, especially considering potential challenges with AMD GPUs. ALC1220 or equivalent audio codecs with proper macOS drivers would be excellent.
  6. UEFI/BIOS Tweaking Options: As usual, a motherboard with a UEFI/BIOS that allows for easy Hackintosh configuration is a must. Tweaking options for settings like VT-d, CFG Lock, and others that can impact macOS compatibility are important.
  7. Build Quality and Reliability: I'm looking for a motherboard from a reputable manufacturer known for producing reliable and durable products.

Have any of you successfully built a Hackintosh with a similar configuration? What motherboards have proven to be compatible and stable with the Intel 13th Gen Core i5 and AMD Radeon™ RX 6600 XT (or Non-XT)? Any tips or gotchas I should be aware of?

I appreciate your expertise and look forward to hearing your recommendations! Thanks for helping me make the best choices for my Hackintosh adventure. Happy hacking!
