I made this Hackintosh over a month ago. Great build. Love it in fact. It’s been rock solid for gaming and general use. Based on Tonymacx86’s CustoMac Mini Deluxe build. I went with this build because of the size to power offerings were the best for what I wanted. I wanted room for many drives, but didn’t want a full-sized tower.
Pros: Smaller form-factor, but large enough for up to 7 HDD/SSD’s. Comes with Bluetooth built-in (WiFi side does NOT Work), Works with latest OS X out of the box, almost. There is some Bios tweaks, but mainly, you can just make your bootable USB drive and install. Awesome!
Cons: Maxes out at 16GB memory, only 1 PCIe slot for 1 Video Card(All I need), Built in WiFi card does not work.
Overall, stable, strong system that is a great workhorse with flexibility.
