THIS BUILD IS OUTDATED. SEE THE UPDATED VERSION HERE (WHERE I ACTUALLY HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT I'M DOING): https://pcpartpicker.com/b/7hr6Mp
All software in this build was funded by my workplace, except for VEGAS Pro Suite and Sapphire 11
This is my first build, took forever because I originally had a SeaSonic power supply, but that was defective and I had to return it. Very stressful but worth the wait. In the future I hope to add another 16GB (8x2) set of RAM like I already have, along with two more FTW2 cards for a 3-way SLI.
This is a Hackintosh build! Parts were selected based on recommendations by the biggest hackintosh community at tonymacx86.com
(Thanks to Reddit user /u/Redditenmo on the buildapc subreddit for giving me recommendations on parts, without that I would have gotten a lot of bad parts cause I had no idea what I was doing.)
This variant of the Z370 often gets ignored in favor of other models such as the Gaming 7, but there really isn't much a difference; in fact, I'd say that this is actually better than the Gaming 7. The included WiFi is definitely a plus (it was a bit too slow for me but if you don't necessarily care about having fast internet then it's fine). Lighting looks really nice on the Color Cycle setting. Good for Hackintosh builds.
On Amazon when I originally got this it was cheaper than the normal one with only one fan so I was surprised i could get that much of a discount. Very impressive graphics card for what it is, and it makes setting up a Hackintosh lot easier. Packaging was very neat, and even came with a nice looking spoof EVGA "movie" poster
Very nice looking case for a good price. I think I read that it's tempered glass but that's wrong, it's just plexiglass. If you're hesitating on getting this case: you should just get it.
Wow, it works!
Plastic is very hard and difficult to screw in but other than that they work very well for me.
Was hesitating on getting this because the font on the keyboard looked bad to me but now I'm starting to get used to it. RGB lights, 6 macro keys, and only 50 bucks, from Corsair! What else could you possibly want in a keyboard?
(The included wrist pad is terrible, but I don't really need it anyways so I don't care.)
This mouse is incredible. I'm surprised it was so cheap.
If you're looking for USB hubs: look Sabrent.
Worked exactly as I needed it to.
