Homemade MacPro

It was finally time for a hardier work horse and in the interest of confounding yet fascinating projects I decided to build a hackintosh. It’s actually quite easy. Lurk about on the forums at www.tonymac86.com and you’ll work out everything you need to know. I settled on and spec’d out something I could over-clock and jam full of RAM. Working in After Effects or C4D is truly a new experience when you can scrub the timeline with careless abandon. And all those render buckets!
