One of my regular clients had been complaining about her desktop at home and asked if I could build her a new pc. Easy answer right. As i was beginning to put together a parts list she asked if it could also run OS X. It does.
So the parts in this list come from the customac build list from tonymac for building a hackintosh.
Her only requests were fast and quiet, with easy access to usb. She also said to build something that I would be happy with, and after I was done I wanted to keep it.
I gave it the name number cruncher since she is a CPA and it seemed fitting since she looks at numbers all day.
About the cooler, she lives in a log cabin and in the summertime it can get very warm even with the air on, pretty sure the noctua will keep it cool.
The Define XL is a really large case with lots of room, its best feature though is the sound dampening. I had 3d mark running and could not hear a thing, the same with prime95.
