Hello guys, glad to join this community.

I am planning to build a Ryzen hackintosh for audio production and recording. I am now doing this so I need recommendations for a good option under 1000. The GPU is less important for me because I will use this to run ProTools, Logic, etc. Not any gaming or video editing. The OS I will need is Mojave

For what I have read in the forum I have this:

Ryzen 7 3700X 3rd Gen 8-core / 16 thread 3.6 Ghz
Motherboard: Gigabyte x570 Aorus Pro

I need 32 gigs of RAM and any GPU that will just do the work and its stable.

Also, I don't know what Power supply or Case to buy, But I need this to be quiet.

I will appreciate any help. Thanks

Catalina: If you use video on Protools and Waves plugins, its bad news. Everything else is working fine.
Mojave: ProTools doesn't launch at all.

I've tried both Catalina and Mojave operating systems.
Logic works for both OSes, but waves often fails to install.
I ran Catalina as an external OS from an SSD connected to a real Macbookpro, installed the main software from there, and returned to Ryzentosh.

One of the characteristics of crashing is that once installed and launched successfully, it doesn't crash. Very little. The ones that don't run consistently will crash during the installation phase or on the first boot.

If you're using Mojave, you should choose an RX580 GPU. If you buy a less powerful graphics board, it will affect Logic's performance.

You can buy whatever case and power supply you want and it won't be a problem.
For parts, it's best to refer to the buyer's guide.

If possible, it's more stable to have a dual-bootable system with Windows and use a non-Logic DAW on Windows.

Hi, I'm planning on assembling an audio Ryzentosh as well.
However I'm mainly on Pro Tools (currently on MacBook Pro) and what you guys wrote is quite depressing..
What method of installation did you follow?
I heard that the so-called "vanilla hackintosh" is possible with AMD as well and this should make stuff work better.
Do you think that installing an older version of OS X would help?
If it's not gonna work then it's a dead end for me I don't really imagine switching to something other than Pro Tools for most of my work and it sucks ass on Windows like a lot of other things.
Thanks for you replies and sharing what you know :)
