Hackintosh as Audio Studio Questions
just a few days ago i sucessfully got iDeneb 10.5.5 running on my Dell Inspiron 530, specs:
-Intel Q6600 Quadcore
-ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro graphics card
-600Gb Sata Hard drive.
anyway, it seems to run fine, got Quartz Extreme working and the temperature measurement averages out at 34degrees C.
I installed Logic Studio and will be using the machine for Audio Production. I'd like to thank everyone here who helped out :)
I have a few questions:
-Is there any disadvantage to using a Hackintosh like this for audio production? is it likely to be less stable than an equivilant MacPro or XP installation?
-should I expect to get the best possible performance from my hardware with this setup? or will it be a bit crippled?
-is there any sort of "overheating" risk with Hackintosh? as i said, at idle the temperature measurement widget reads an average of 34 degrees C across the 4 cores. is this ok? does a Hackintosh somehow run hotter than the machine would do normaly?
if anyone can shine some light here i'd be thankful. i suspect its just paranoia and insecurity on my part :) but i'd like to know what the score is.
i've only noticed one minor "crash" so far, where during the Logic Studio installation (40Gb of DVDs) the installer seemed to hang up halfway through, dvd drive couldn't eject, kinda wierd but nothing like that since and in general the system seems to run very well.
