After tons of reading I have an idea for my first build. Would appreciate any thoughts, tips or alternative hardware recommendations you might have. Will be using opencore (0.5.7) for the build:

Operating System: Catalina 10.15.4

Equipment List:
  • CPU - AMD Ryzen™ 9 3900X
  • Motherboard - Gigabyte X570 AORUS MASTER (rev. 1.x)
  • Memory - G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600
  • SSD (OS X Catalina) - Sabrent 2TB Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 SSD
  • SSD (Dual Boot Win 10 Pro) - Sabrent 1TB Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 SSD With Heatsink
  • GPU - TBD - Not sure which one (mid priced) that is natively supported OOB

  • Cooler - Corsair Hydro Series H100i PRO Low Noise 240mm RGB Water/Liquid CPU Cooler

Outstanding questions:

1 x Intel® GbE LAN chip (10/100/1000 Mbit) (LAN1)
1 x Realtek® 2.5GbE LAN chip (10/100/1000/2500 Mbit) (LAN2)

Q. Should I map my USB ports as soon as I have a stable build? - Have read alot about the importance of avoiding issues by keeping to the 15 USB limit. Just wondering when is the best time to do that in the build?
