PS:208 – The Hackintosh.

So why? I like to think different. ­čÖé

What did I get? Well for you few who may sneak in from time to time, here’s what I’m working with:

  • Thermaltake Core V1 Mini ITX Cube
  • Intel Boxed Core I5-6600K 3.50 GHz, 6 M Processor
  • Gigabyte LGA1151 Intel Z170 Mini-ITX DDR4 Motherboards GA-Z170N-Gaming 5
  • Ballistix Sport LT 32GB Kit (16GBx2) DDR4 2400 DIMM 288-Pin – (Red)
  • Zalman CPU Cooler
  • ADATA Premier SP550 240GB 2.5 Inch SATA III
  • TP-LINK N900 2.4GHz or 5GHz

I have an idea on getting the Apple parts which will help with getting things like continuity and handoff , but basically an i5 3.5ghz processor, with 32GB of ram, nice case, good cooling, solid Wifi, and an always blazing SSD? Yes please.

All the parts are noted as shipped, should be here later today (yes I’m still awake, so it’s only a few hours into Today! But all things said and done, hoping it’ll be solid, too room for a few hard drives or SSD’s in which if I want to triple boot (Windows, Linux, Mac) I can ­čśÇ So pretty jazzed about this, going to then clear off my MacBook, do one huge “see if it helps” clean install, but it honestly may just be time to retire it.

So far in my late night working I’ve gotten 1 site optimized a bit, a caching server setup, 4 email concerns sorted, renewed 3 SSL certificates, and worked on a new email filtering service I may deploy fleet wide (which would solve so many issues, and stop spam!) but I’ve still got a quote to write, sleep to get in, and praying that Lilly feels better in the AM, currently on sinus meds (Tiny cold tabs!) and teething tabs as she’s starting at it again (she just wants these teeth DONE!).

Brief break while compiling is over, back to work!
