Thanks for sharing your experience in here. Will this NUC+64GB RAM work for Hackintosh?metallicloud wrote: ↑ Love my NUC8!
This unit can be a perfect Mac mini replacement (x86). Especially when compare it with the previous base model (i3 8100B/HD 630), better CPU performance and much better GPU performance.
Mine currently runs on Mojave (10.14.6) flawlessly using OpenCore and the latest community EFI setup. I bought the tall version so I was able to substitute M.2 SSD to a MacBook Air's Wireless/BT card (BCM94360CS2)
Everything just works fine like a real Mac Lol Including iCloud/AirDrop/Handoff/Mobile Hotspot/Apple Watch unlock, even Sidecar if you install Catalina instead. All ports function well including the Thunderbolt 3. I haven't really found any random software issues. It's incredible tbh. Never had such a pain-free hackintosh experience.
Also the i5 version suffers less from thermal throttling compare to the i7, it actually ends up having stronger continuing performance when it gets hot.
Too bad the newer NUCs don't get as good Hackintosh compatibility as NUC8s.
There is a deal of 64GB ram at Amazon now: https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B07ZLCC6J8
