Teslamax’s Hackintosh Build

After consulting the TonyMacx86.com web site, a great source of information for building a Hackintosh, I chose the components I would use.

Hardware

Case NZXT Crafted Series Phantom 410 Mid Tower ATX Computer Case – Black

I moved my computers to a rack chassis to up my geek-cred.

CHENBRO RM41300-FS81

PSU Corsair CS650M
Motherboard Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD3H (rev 1.x)
CPU Intel Core i7-4770K (Socket 1150)
RAM
GPU ASUS nVidia GeForce GTX 760 (GTX760-DC2OC-2GD5)
SSD
HD Western Digital Black 1TB (WD1003FZEX)

The bulk of the hardware was purchased from the fine folks at the local MicroCenter store.

Assembling the hardware was one thing, getting the software installed the way I like it is another. Configuring and optimizing the operating systems, boot menus, etc. is an unending process. Currently I have three operating systems installed which, more or less, are finally co-operating. (It only took me a year to do so.)

OS Function
Mac OS X (10.11) was primary operating system; became too difficult to keep working
Ubuntu (15.04) was Kerbal Space Program 64-bit; I now run Debian 9 in a VM on my FreeNAS box
Windows 7 Pro 10 primary OS; mostly for games
