    [Guide] HP Elite 8300 & 6300 Pro (all form factors) using Clover UEFI hotpatch

    Everything plays, but it maxes out my CPU right now bc hardware acceleration isn’t supported for my GTX 950. I got a RX 580 and am just researching the best way to get HEVC hardware acceleration before I install it.

    [Guide] HP Elite 8300 & 6300 Pro (all form factors) using Clover UEFI hotpatch

    I have an i7-3770 system with a RX580. I don’t mind turning off the HD4000. My main concerns are stability and HW HEVC acceleration. I’m not a pro or Final Cut user. I just want to be able to watch my iPhone camera videos without pegging my CPU, LOL (they’re all stored as HEVC). I guess I also...

    @LisaAlterEgo So which SMBOIS do you find works best for your system? Would you recommend macmini6,1 or imacpro1,1?

    [Guide] HP Elite 8300 & 6300 Pro (all form factors) using Clover UEFI hotpatch

    @LisaAlterEgo Just to make sure I'm following your instructions correctly... If I'm following 15b, I end up combining the ssdt_data.dsl with my ssdt.dsl to create a new ssdt.aml. Then I use that ssdt.aml along with *only* CPUFriend.kext. I no longer need CPUFriendDataProvider.kext or...

    Follow the instructions in this post and see if it helps. Can't guarantee it will work with this guide, but it did work for me when I used it with Pastrychef's guide. https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/clover-hdmi-audio-for-nvidia-amd-cards-easy-way.145399/page-21#post-1834257

    [Guide] HP Elite 8300 & 6300 Pro (all form factors) using Clover UEFI hotpatch

    Thanks, @LisaAlterEgo ! This power management stuff is confusing. I'm hoping to get my hack moved over to Mojave in the next few weeks. I was waiting for the stable version of WEG 1.3.6 to be released -- it looks like that happened last night so I should start working on this soon. I'll report...

    New DRM enabling method for systems with AMD GPU

    Unfortunately, I haven’t started working on this for my hack, so I’m not going to be much help. I do know the LFM should be 1600MHz, as shown in the attached screenshot (linked from the Intel Ark website). Sorry I can’t be of much more help. Maybe we can get @macnb over here to help us out :)

    New DRM enabling method for systems with AMD GPU

    Maybe try CPUFriendFriend to help get CPUFriendDataProvider set up? https://github.com/corpnewt/CPUFriendFriend If that doesn't help, I noticed @macnb got his i7-3770K working with the imacpro1,1 profile and CPUFriend.kext...

    [Guide] HP Elite 8300 & 6300 Pro (all form factors) using Clover UEFI hotpatch

    I have an 8300 with an i7-3770. Is the macmini6,1 still the best SMBIOS choice for me, or should I stick with iMac13,2? What if I want to add a Radeon RX580 and want full HEVC hardware acceleration — macmini6,1 or imac13,2 or imacpro1,1? Thanks for the great guide! Edit: It looks like if I...

    Sorry it's been so long, but I finally got around to installing a new PSU in my 8300 CMT. Working great so far. I did have to drill a couple new holes in the case to secure the PSU, since the OEM PSU's screw holes weren't in the standard positions. The only real issue is the 515 - Fan Error on...

    @phrozenpenguin Got the PSU, adapter cable, and graphics card but haven't had the time to get it all installed and working, yet. Also ended up with a circle slash on boot that set me back a little. Finally figured out I needed to delete the prelinkedkernel and then rebuild my kext cache. So my...

    Thanks for the advice. I should have the PSU, adapter cable, and RX 580 all by this weekend, so I'll let you know how it goes. I'll definitely be cloning my system drive before doing anything, just in case I mess something up and need to start over. This 8300 has been rock solid on High Sierra...

    I decided to take the plunge and try the PSU upgrade, so I would be able to upgrade graphics cards more easily now and in the future. Getting a Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580. Hopefully, the upgrade goes off without a hitch. Any advice on how/which order to update my GPU and OS? I'm currently using a...

    Thanks for the link to that thread. Looks interesting. I'll have to decide if it makes more sense to spend extra on a new PSU plus an RX580 or go with the RX560 with 4 DP that doesn't need a PSU change. Decisions, decisions, lol :)

    Thanks for the link to the card. I found a place that carries it for $240 -- which is about double I wanted to spend at the moment. I'll research the adapter and PSU upgrade. That might be my best bet. Thanks for the suggestion. My current setup is working well, but I'd like to move to Catalina...
