So quick update.
I swapped out the WiFi card on the board. And I got everything installed into the case for a first test run with the MacOS working and to test air flow and temps of CPU while in case. I went with the NZXT 210 case and the NZXT Kraken Z63 (mainly because it will give instant CPU temp display. And Yes, the Z63 fits into the case perfectly although it is recommended to only go with a 240mm vs the Z63s 280mm.) AIO.
I go to start up system and I get a crash for memory slot 1. Problem is the aio pump. It pushes against the memory so I believe it unseats it just enough to where the system can’t read it. So I am stuck at this point. This board is so tight I’m not sure where or how I can install the kraken pump/display unit. I feel like i may have to take off one of the heat spreaders but not sure which one.
What do you guys suggest?
Successfully figured out how to modify cooler for now. I did end up having to leave off one of the thumb nuts to do it tho. I will upload a picture tomorrow I am done for today.
Once I booted into system I was able to connect to internet via wireless so the mentioned WiFi card that you can purchase for MacOS is literally plug and play as described.
I still need to test the Bluetooth portion of the card and will do so tomorrow. I purchased a Bluetooth keyboard that supports MacOS.
I also need to find a program that will allow me to run Windows applications on Mac so I can download the NZXT cam software for the AIO and test temps and set fan curves and get this thing stress tested.
