    macOS 10.14.5 Update

    I updated as well, see steps below. So far everything seems to be normal. However, I also have the graphic glitches that some others are reporting during boot. I am using a Radeon Pro WX 7100. checked boot volume with fsck_apfs -n -l -x /dev/rdisk1s1 before updating corrected some issues with...

    [SUCCESS] Z170X-UD5 TH, i7-6700K, AMD Radeon Pro WX 7100, 64GB DDR4

    I think in that case I am afraid that I will not be able to help you. I once tried to make two GTX950s work in my Hackintosh and had similar issues. After weeks of trying to overcome them, I gave up and switched to a more powerful single GPU setup. See the corresponding thread here...

    I'm happy to help, if I can. So, you have both cards installed at once or did you replace the 580 with the 7100? Let me ask you this first: Have you enabled the internal GPU in the BIOS? I know from other cases with AMD cards that there were some cases of black screens when the internal GPU...

    Hey iLikeHackintosh. I agree. What I would advice, if at all, is to overclock in small increments, with thoroughly testing of the entire system and close observation of component temperatures under long term heavy load. In my experience, successful overclocking is closely connected to how well...

    Hey Hahn Let me say this first: I always try to go as clean as possible with my Clover settings. I have no Acpi patches and also no Kernel and Kext Patches in my setup. Because of this I also have only little to no experience with most of the patches out there. Therefore I think it makes no...

    "About This Mac" shows wrong Processor speed even with "Cpu > Frequency MHz" set correctly in Clover

    Hi Handzo85 Yes, that's what everybody says. :) However, I would love to understand what's actually going on here. The value in "Cpu" > "Frequency MHz" in Clover seems to be somehow translated in the "About This Mac" dialogue (but not accurately). Not a big deal, but I thought someone would...

    "About This Mac" shows wrong Processor speed even with "Cpu > Frequency MHz" set correctly in Clover

    I overclocked my Z170X-UD5 TH, i7-6700K Hackintosh the simple way, via Gigabyte's "CPU Upgrade" option in the BIOS. The system seems to run smoothly so far and performs notably better (much higher Geekbench result for instance). Also, the clock of 4.5 GHz is correctly represented in Intel's...

    [SUCCESS] Z170X-UD5 TH, i7-6700K, AMD Radeon Pro WX 7100, 64GB DDR4

    I just updated the files that are on my profile page with the ones I currently use. So, yes, you can take them and put them in /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched/.

    Hey Hahn, sure. My BIOS settings are on my build page. I always keep them up to date. However, I only keep track of the things that I changed after resetting with "Load Optimized Defaults". - BIOS version: F21 - Smart Fan 5 = Silent (all fans) - BIOS > Fast Boot = Disabled - BIOS > Full Screen...

    Oh wow, very interesting! Thanks for sharing! Will try that for sure as I am always on the look to simplify my already very reliable Hackintosh.

    I initially created my own USB SSDT from scratch by measuring out all the ports with USB2 and USB3 sticks. I quite happily used this SSDT for a while until I assumed that potentially something could be wrong with the USB3 motherboard header mapping in my SSDT. I remember that (because at that...

    Confirmed Audio Interfaces (Hobbyist/Pro-sumer/Pro) & Drivers - Mac OS X

    If it is a class compliant USB device and did run on the iMac then I assume it should work with your Hackintosh as well. I mean, I don't know your specific DAC but I personally never had any issues with class compliant USB devices and my Hackintosh.
