As of Mac OS X 10.11.3 Apple has removed the CPU core/thread limit. This has made building a Dual CPU system even more enticing. Since LGA 2011 systems have been released many people have tried to get a solid Dual CPU system built and configured to replace the now aging LGA 1366 SR-2 which was, and still is, the staple for Dual CPU Hackintoshes.
Cost vs. performance has always been a challenge in regards to Dual CPU systems. We have found a combination that we feel would be the best fit but requires development.
2 x XEON E5-2670 8 CORE @2.60GHz
CORSAIR Hydro Series H60
CORSAIR 850 WATT PSU
Total cost of the system is $850 and will have a Geekbench of around 35,000. To get a equivalent Geekbench score you would have to build a single socket system with a 2697 v2 12 CORE @3.75 GHz. We will be providing the remaining components to complete the system. We are asking for your help in making this system a reality.
