Description

Small form factor mini ITX hackintosh. Crammed everything in the Dr. Zaber Sentry launched on Indiegogo. This case is production unit number 24.

Note, this motherboard does not work well with this case if you want more than one drive. The very tall USB3 header port is placed right under where one of the SSD drive bays is located. You will either need to buy a low profile USB3 header extension or forego a second SSD.

+1! Your whole setup looks so clean!

I would loved to have seen some pics of the inside of the case and all the components and also any info on waht temps/performance is like if possible?

I've added two more pictures, unfortunately they aren't all that useful. For whatever reason I completely forgot to take pictures of the internals before I closed it up. (Note, one of those photos shows my old RAM, which was too tall for the case and ended up being returned.) Next time I open it up I'll be sure to take pictures.

I'll also get around to temps / performance. I can tell you right now though, it runs hot. The case is literally hot to the touch just when idling.

I LOVE that monitor setup! The keyboard mouse combo is also so cool. I'd love to see more pictures.

Is the blue illuminated RAM Corsair LPX or Vengeance LED?

The RAM in the last photo is Corsair Vengeance LED, but I ended up returning it in favor of LPX due to it's lower height.

Question for you: Did you ever manage to get iMessage working or the power button?

  • 25 months ago

Unfortunately no. But there's hope for both. iMessage I didn't try at all because I don't use it, but I'm almost certain I could get it working. There are many pretty easy to follow guides for it. The power button I didn't try very hard on either, but I'm not as certain it will work.

Thanks for following up. That power button issue is a touch sell. How do you power on the PC?

Sorry, I should have been more specific about the power button. The power button is a somewhat common thing to "not work" on hackintoshs, but when people say it doesn't work they just mean the macOS operating system either isn't aware of it, or doesn't respond to it as expected.

This means pushing the power button while you're booted in macOS may not cause it to sleep, or bring up the power options menu as you might expect. However, the motherboard is still aware of the power button, so powering the machine on with the power button will always work, and holding down the power button will always trigger a hard shutdown.

Ah, I see. Thank you for clarifying that!
