Guide : Build a Custom Mac Mini in 2015

Building a Custom Mac Mini means need a mini-ITX motherboard which fully support integrated graphic card because I won't attach an additional graphic card. First you need to know, this is a tutorial how to build Custom Mac Mini which supported OS X Yosemite 10.10.
I really falling in love with Jonsbo mini-ITX case. So i will use the 1150 H97 motherboard from Gigabyte. It includes bluetooth and Wifi but only bluetooth will support natively in OS X. Then you should add a supported PCI-E wireless receiver later.
Gigabyte GA-H97n WiFi (mini-ITX).
For memory, I very recommend to use the Corsair Vengeance. It has better reliability and better performance. I attach 2 x 8GB DDR3 1600MHz Corsair Vengeance.
For the processor, I attach the Core i3-4370 3.80 GHz. It is one of Core i3 Haswell processor best seller.
Nobody said that Samsung 850 EVO SSD is not fast, so I always use it until this day.
You can read this article to find a supported PCI-E wireless receiver or this article to find a supported USB Wifi Receiver.
For power supply, I recommend you to buy Corsair CX series 430 Watt because it has low noise and also low power bills.

Attach all of them into Jonsbo Case V2s or V3+.

If everything is ready, now let's install OS X into it. For preparation, you can check this guide.
