Great for Hackintosh

GIGABYTE GA-B85N Phoenix-WIFI LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Works OOB for Haswell Hackintosh. Using I5-4570s with Zotac GT640 Silent Graphics Card and Rosewill RCX-Z300 CPU Cooler. Really zippy and quiet. Bonus is the fact you can install the OS on an MSATA SSD. Also the included Mini PCI WiFi card has OSX compatible WiFi and Bluetooth built-in with a couple of kext mods.

Cons: NONE

Overall Review: I had the Z87N-WiFi before this and had problems with the dual ethernet. This only has one so works better with OSX.

Most Critical Review

Unreliable, useless, overheats when cloning then disconnects

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Unreliable with 2019 iMac. Installed Intel 660p and Samsung Evo 970. Overheats every time halfway through cloning and ejects. Not worth it!

Overall Review: Don't buy!

OCZ Never Again!!!

Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Agility 3 2.5" 60GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) AGT3-25SAT3-60G

Pros: NOT One!

Cons: Worst SSD brand on the planet!!! I have had at least 4 OCZ drives fail in the last 6 months. Their tech support is the worst. When they do work, which isn't very long , they are always problematic. I have had close to a dozen of their SSD drives (Various Models) and they all give me nothing but grief. Not one has lasted more than six months. Save yourself the headache and spend a little more. Samsung's are bullet proof!!! Not one failure of that brand

Overall Review: Don't buy OCZ unless you want problems, you will loose data!!!

Works Great for Hackintosh

GIGABYTE GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Really easy to hack for Lion, has lots of USB ports, USB 3 ports on rear plus USB 3 header on MB. Easy to OC, works OOB with OSX and just 2 kexts and you have a cheap Mac Pro!

Cons: None

Overall Review: Would definitely buy again, problem free after 1 month, memory at 1600, OC 2600k to 4.2, BIOS F5 problem free!
