    [Guide] Dell XPS 13 9360 on MacOS Sierra 10.12.x - LTS (Long-Term Support) Guide

    Sounds like it's a different issue. The custom frequency vectors have never been shown to have a measurable effect on power usage, even. And you can always just boot without HWP. Your crash is in the graphics drivers, specifically the framebuffer controller. If it matches what killuminati91...

    [Guide] Dell XPS 13 9360 on MacOS Sierra 10.12.x - LTS (Long-Term Support) Guide

    The OpenCore manual looks pretty nice, too. There is a lot of accumulated knowledge in there. https://github.com/acidanthera/OpenCorePkg/raw/master/Docs/Configuration.pdf One thing that's weird is that the repository on github has pull requests (a handful have now been merged) but not issues.

    i7-9700K + ASUS Z390-A, which GPU's?

    Yeah I was in a similar situation once. It gets weird and complicated. An application in OS X might look at certain info it can find in ioreg and assume that's your graphics card, or at least one that it can use, even though it doesn't have a driver attached. Because on a Mac this is a safe...

    i7-9700K + ASUS Z390-A, which GPU's?

    Mixed GPU platforms: I tried it once. The drivers will probably work, but applications do not like it! On the NVME, if you get one of the ones that can be 4k formatted and use a recent OS build, then no problem - it's native. The 4k format process is a quick one-time thing. I like to do it this...

    i7-9700K + ASUS Z390-A, which GPU's?

    You could also consider an NVME SSD. The dual AMD is alright, if that's what you want to have for Windows gaming. I've found no problems with multiple cards when using OpenCL programs - at least, none that real Macs don't also have the issue, i.e. poor program design. Other forms, like OpenGL...

    I am rather delighted to be made aware of this feature! Thanks.

    That's the type of reply I should have expected. Fine - I don't wish to argue. Just don't put words in my mouth. I have no desire to write guides. That's an ad hominem, anyway.

    Darkvoid, when OP left did they put you in charge of this thread or something? You act as though you're the guide author even though you never went to the trouble of writing one. Ocytoxin, it appears you're missing Lilu. If you want to use kexts that need Lilu (it's typically the case now) and...

    [Guide] Dell XPS 13 9360 on MacOS Sierra 10.12.x - LTS (Long-Term Support) Guide

    Thanks. I updated my patches, and it does fix the issue with that SSDT. I haven't noticed any different fan behavior though. Same for you? I suspect it may have to do with the variable CTYP, which appears to control whether active cooling is used. I'm actually on FakeSMC now, because of an...

    [Guide] Dell XPS 13 9360 on MacOS Sierra 10.12.x - LTS (Long-Term Support) Guide

    Interesting. There is an SSDT for the Dynamic Platform Thermal Framework that I hadn't looked at before. Also, I just found this GitHub issue: https://github.com/intel/dptf/issues/22#issuecomment-402861777 It suggests that the DPTF has a policy that uses passive/active trip point, but available...

    A recent post: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-dell-xps-13-9360-on-macos-sierra-10-12-x-lts-long-term-support-guide.213141/post-1893290 It must be a Mojave thing, because I don't get it on 10.13.6. I've not seen much in this thread about how the OS controls what's going on with the...

    [Guide] Dell XPS 13 9360 on MacOS Sierra 10.12.x - LTS (Long-Term Support) Guide

    Again, I'm interested if anyone else finds the USB C to be not working with USB 3 devices? I've found this thread now: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/usb-c-hotplug-not-working.223534/post-1629770 The change mentioned is included in @the-darkvoid 's SSDT-TYPC.dsl file, and my bdmesg output...

    Did you use pmset to disable hibernation? (hibernatemode = 0)

    I tried the CPUFriend posted by @zanzy, as it matches my CPU. The CPU package power at idle, as reported by Intel Power Gadget, is the same, at about 1.5W, for me. This is measured with the display sleeping, which gives me the lowest reading, naturally. I lost only a very slight amount in...
