Hi There,




I was planning to replace my entire PC with iMac Pro but few wise men in the forum suggested to install hackintosh instead of going for Apple and also suggested to get better cores. So i decided to replace only my Motherboard and CPU for now.




I am selling below components and both components under warranty as bought have been bought in Aug 2017 and have standard 3-year warranty.




Intel i7-6800k - CPU details - 


New CPU at pricesspy valued at NZD $499 cheapest - 




New motherboard valued at NZD $479 - cheapest - 




I am planning to sell both of these components for NZD $700

The problem with using Pricespy prices for older equipment is that the prices are usually not accurate. Your CPU is 2 generations old and not sold new for some time, so I'd take that price with a large grain of salt.


E.g. Pricespy says $499 for that CPU, but a newer, better i5-8600K is $368

I went the hackintosh route instead of buying a imac pro and everything works perfect on my 4k monitor for a fraction of the price. Currently running High Sierra but also have Mojave running without any issues. 




Good move on your part if you have a little tech knowledge to deal with any issues.

Yeah, take a look on TM and GPForums to see what stuff is selling for. A 2 year old system, may still be a damn good system, but price wise, not so much.
