    how to mount 240mm water cooler radiator?

    thanks - in the end i bought a NZXT 510 as a temporary case and from reading about that case, you're supposed to pull in cool air from the front and exhaust it out the back/top. it just seemed bad to heat up the inside of the case on purpose but i actually installed the fans both ways and...

    ASUS X-299 Deluxe II - Thunderbolt Solution?

    yeah i have a lot of hardware lab experience so this was pretty easy for me. but i can see how it would be difficult for most people. it did require taking the motherboard out of the case becase at least on my nzxt 510 the cutout behind the processor is too small and does not expose the whole...

    ASUS X-299 Deluxe II - Thunderbolt Solution?

    i dumped out the rom with a raspberry pi 4 and an SOIC clip and then casey patched it and sent it back to me. i then flashed it with that new rom. he has detailed instructions in his z390 thread on how to do this.

    ASUS X-299 Deluxe II - Thunderbolt Solution?

    i guess things kind of stalled out. i don't know if i should share maleorderbride's SSDT without asking him. i also don't know if it makes sense to use his SSDT without flashing the firmware, which is kind of involved. x299 is not CaseySJ's main emphasis so maybe he had other things to work on...

    ASUS X-299 Deluxe II - Thunderbolt Solution?

    CaseySJ is going to release everything when it is ready. I am using opencore, so not sure if my EFI would be helpful to you. the key thing is that you need the SSDT that matches up with this motherboard (which was developed by another user) and most importantly you need to flash the thunderbolt...

    ASUS X-299 Deluxe II - Thunderbolt Solution?

    well, we got it working - hotplug too. i have another firmware to test to see if it fixes my power problems. the SSDT needs methods to catch the interrupts generated by the hotplug, and you need to use clover or opencore's ACPI renaming to move the built-in interrupt code out of the way. i...

    ASUS X-299 Deluxe II - Thunderbolt Solution?

    thanks. i will dump them out again today. i have been considering downgrading the bios to 0802 but i wonder if that bios has the cfg lock bug and needs to be patched to fix that. do you remember?

    X299 - Open Core support

    given the problems i'm having with the titan ridge TB3 controller i have been thinking of downgrading bios on my asus prime deluxe II to 0802, which is the previous version, to see if anything improves. does anyone know if the MSR lock is broken in 0802?

    ASUS X-299 Deluxe II - Thunderbolt Solution?

    just checking in over here - caseysj has been helping with patching the TB Titan Ridge firmware on the asus x299 prime deluxe II to enable local node, but somehow i have more fundamental problems it seems. despite having my bios set up (almost, see below) as shown by @dez in post #98, the TB3...

    X299 - Open Core support

    so far not too much success - i dumped the rom and caseysj patched it. with the SSDTs loaded, my TB3 dock does work, but the TB3 ports only come alive if something is plugged in from cold boot, and hotplug doesn't work. he thinks maybe the firmware flash didn't actually enable anything new. he...

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    shoot - i had missed this reply. i just got my reader going (that's a whole other story - amazon shipped me an empty envelope which was supposed to contain the clip+headers, so i just soldered on a bunch of wires to the clip i had. luckily it worked.) the topmost chip is more accessible and i...

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    I guess I got ripped off by Amazon then - there were no ribbon cables, just the clamp. Oh well. edit: argh - i can see that they sell it with and without ribbon cables and i didn't notice that when ordering. well, tomorrow i should have the headers/cables i bought separately anyway.

    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    So I don't know if I missed this in the guide, but the "cheaper" (black) SOIC8 clamp mentioned has 1mm pitch pins... the plastic housings of the regular jumpers you get for 0.1" headers like Raspberry Pi's are too thick to fit on the pins next to one another. I ordered some 1mm breakouts...

    it might be a silly reply. 1. this is my last hackintosh, i'm pretty sure, because of the transition to ARM 2. therefore i would like it to be as complete as possible. my current machine has a TB2 port but i never put any effort into getting it working and that always bugged me. 3. apparently...
