This is meant for my girlfriend who is a video editor who really likes Mac OS. So I did this...

This is awesome! I enjoy a good Hackintosh. Nicely done

How does this work with Premiere CC? Does it work with iGPU acceleration?

Also, in my experience, Premiere likes CUDA more for Mercury acceleration.

Also, you can NATIVELY render ProRes with this setup! Windows Premiere can never render native ProRes at proper broadcast QC passing quality.

Hey sorry I never got back, but to be completely honest I don't have a great idea on how this works with many of the Adobe applications because I built it for my girlfriend at the time and and all I knew was that it was "stupid quick" in her words when rendering out a 3 minute 4K native clip. Also I wanted to use an Nvidia card for this but I made a mistake when I told her that the actual iMac used AMD cards so her apple loving self wouldn't take anything except Vega

Nice build! Helped me settle on some of my own hackintosh components.

Hey, I just want to let you know that if you plan on using that same video card, I had to mess around a lot before I got the OS to accept Vega 64 because it only accepts Vega 56 naturally so keep that in mind. I updated the part list for it so if anyone wanted to use the same parts they would have an easier time.

Appreciate the tip. I had budgeted for a Vega 56 anyway.

Wouldn't it be better to remove the GPU support bracket? How are the GPU thermals and noise levels? Looks a little choked by that PSU shroud.

I would have removed it but at the time she was like "ooh pretty pretty white strip in the case!" So I left it and surprisingly the like, half inch of clearance the card has across most of the PSU shroud seemed to be what I'm guessing was barely enough. I had her export a 4k clip in premier CC and the card topped out at 76 C, so I was like whatever if its good its good. I would have removed it just for the little bit extra cooling potential but I prolly woulda gotten the ol' snapped neck the minute I popped the first tab xD
