What motherboard do you recommend if you where starting over on Hackintosh?

Greg

=======
I bought a used AMD Radeon RX 480 8GB reference graphics card for abut US$80 today. It comes with a factory overclock making it performing on par with the RX 580 in my Hackintosh. This card is used in my dual processor workstation replacing the GeForce GTX 1060 3GB, which is suffering under my 4K monitor.

Two more pictures.

Wait so for each range it has a dedicated supply? Or is it putting them in series/parallel somehow. Interesting design.

I think they should be working in parallel.  :)

It's not a stupid amount of money for a good hand tool. A set is even better value.

I like the way the guide on the box shows how you should employ the various diameters of the shaped handle. They missed out 'spanner zone' ;D

A Seek Shot Pro for $611+tax (TEquipment account discount+EEVBlog 6% discount), a used Keysight M9260A audio analyzer and a pair of used warranty replacement Keysight M9243A scopes (the original ones developed active probe recognition issues).

TEquipment is now charging sales tax even though I don't live in New Jersey |O.

Greg

At this moment, you would want to run OS X 10.13 or 10.14 and the best motherboards are the 170, 270, 370 series.  My Z370 installed and runs flawlessly with a 6-core i7.  Every build I have constructed seems to be a little more trouble-free than the one before it...

Yes, and after the M9260A, I will have one card out of the box.
I may end up buying another chassis once I land in China!

Are there any concerns with counterfeits of this set? Or is it actually safe to just order it from Banggood or Ali or whatever?

I got mine from Aliexpress (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Original-Xiaomi-Mijia-Wiha-8-in-1-24-in-1-Precision-Screw-Driver-Kit-60HRC-Magnetic/32962744456.html) and while shopping I spotted some apparently counterfeits around and sellers were even asking the original price for it and some time using the original pictures in the ad. I suggest to check the costumers' feedbacks with pictures to see what they are getting. The case's color of the fakes are darker, silkscreen of the bits is in a different position and the box is all white with no printing or sticks.
For reference this is how a fake looks like (in this case the seller is not claiming it is a Xiaomi Wiha, but I saw others doing so): https://www.aliexpress.com/item/25-In-1-Multifunctional-Screwdriver-Kit-Precision-Magnetic-Bits-Daily-Use-Smart-Home-Work-Repair-Maintain/32957227636.html

edit: found another fake (this one is selling as original): https://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-Original-Xiaomi-Mijia-Wiha-Daily-Use-Screwdriver-Tool-Kit-24-Precision-Magnetic-Bits-AL-Box/32964324972.html

I got a fake set from a ebay seller. The sellers pictures were of the real item, but the seller sent me a fake. The fake had no markings or labels on the cardboard box or tool case. I compared the item I received with pictures of the real item. The biggest difference was the type of bits, and their placement in the case. The seller complained that the description stated that it was not the real item, but the title description actually stated "Wiha". I did receive a full refund and seller paid return shipping.

I bought a real one from Banggood.

I got the same Wiha/Xiaomi screwdriver set.
It's very very good,but the problem with this kind of bits is "you can't go in to deep holes"
However,Wiha/Xiaomi screwdriver set is the best of its own genre if compared to the others cheapo/bullshit set with this kind of bits

So you get this.  Kind of a knockoff idea maybe, they do work though.  Between this and the original Wiha, I got rid of a small drawer of small screwdrivers in my toolbox in the office.  The tweezers are for crap so I pitched them.  Here is the link if interested.

By the way, I bought both from Banggood.

An insane medical quality set of fine tip cutters and tweezers. Accidentally discovered a desk with stuff in a local mall by the nail salon. There was a lot to choose from. If you live in Toronto check the local major malls. Found it at Centerpoint mall @Yonge-Steeles but they may sell in other parts of GTA too.
