Building a Hackintosh, let alone an X99 Hackintosh is a pain in the ass. There's a lot of troubleshooting, trial and error, debugging, and ah-ha moments.
That being said- I think it's worth it. If you're the kind of person that likes bleeding edge hardware and can't live without the OS X environment and software-- an X99 Hackintosh may be right up your alley.
But again; it's not for the faint of heart.
Recently I finished my build of the following machine:
- Gigabyte X99-UD5H Wifi
- Intel Core i7-5930K Haswell-E 6-Core 3.5GHz Processor
- Crucial Ballistix Sport 32GB (4 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4-19200)
- CORSAIR AX series AX760 760W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI
- 2x Samsung XP941 SSDs in Raid 0
- 2x M.2 PCIe to PCIe 3.0 x4 Adapter
- ATI Radeon 7970 - Mac Compatible without extra drivers
AUDIOQUEST - DRAGONFLY V1.2 USB DAC - No audio drivers needed
- Corsair H105 CPU Cooler
- PowerMac G5 Converted Case
- Asus PQ321Q 31.5" 4K Display running at 3840x2160
- 2x Dell U2412M 24" Monitors in Portrait Mode
Overclocked to 4.5GHz stable. 1.327v core voltage. 2400MHz ram. F9 Bios.
There is an issue with the PCIe Memory Map with Clover. See this tread.
Additionally, with OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 and later, I'm having trouble getting my Asus PQ321Q running at 60Hz. I'm stuck on 10.10.2 because the refresh rate at 30Hz ruins the experience. Read about it here: Post by Nicholas Woodhams | ARSTechnica
Overall, I am very happy with the system.
