Hackintosh Mini – ITX Build – GIGABYTE MotherBoard Z390 I AORUS PRO WiFi – i9 9900K
This build is by benmingli, This is his first mini-ITX build. The reason he wanted to build a mITX is he wanted a more compact form factor, yet powerful mac to use. He has spent a months on finalising his decision.
He has tried top-loaded 2018 Mac mini, 2017 iMac Does not work. So he went ahead and ordered the hardware list and plan to work on it during Christmas time.
- Intel i9 9900K

- Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz C16 Red Memory Kit

The Builder don’t game but in the same he doesn’t want to use onboard graphic. This RX 570 is best for the buck on the market.
The Thermaltake Core V1 Mini ITX Cube is best you can find that offers both small form and plenty of room inside the case. Well designed inside out.
Builder is a fan of Dell monitors and IPS. No regret buying the UltraSharp u3219q. So clear and crispy.
Based on everything I’d read, He has seen people succeed in most Gigabyte Aorus Pro Z370 boards so I’m pretty confident that he can make it work on a Aorus Pro Z370 I pro wifi, which is the mini-ITX board.
It may seem crazy to spend $800 on a CPU, but He plan to keep the build LONG (this time) so He opt for the i9 9900K
He wanted a quiet build so He chose Noctua NH-C14S, known to be quite powerful.
