    Ohchang's build: Gigabyte Z590 Vision G + i7-10700K + AMD RX580

    Judging by your Intel Power Gadget the CPU is consuming more power than it should while idle, 34 Watt and 60C temperature are no joke (if that's idle condition) on Windows should be far less than that. Open Activity Monitor app and see whats causing that CPU load, if "kernel_task" is doing that...

    How to Prepare for Big Sur

    Isn't logging in Apple ID and dealing with Apple official servers on a Hackintosh kinda risky for Hackintosh world in general? I'm asking because I Hackintosh like 8 years now but on my iCloud devices I have iPhone 12, iPhone 6s and an iPad 2018, though I use my Hackintoshs as daily computers...

    [GUIDE] MSI GS65 8SE Stealth Thin - Catalina 10.15

    Very detailed but simple at the same time, you should be rewarded for writing tutorials no joking, I learned a lot already even if my Catalina Hackintosh is 95% up and running in my MSI GE63 Raider, no issues so far. For my DW1560 which should be bcm94352z BT/WIFI card I used...

    AMD Radeon Performance Enhanced SSDT

    With Geekbench 5 my 5700XT went from 38k to 65k in Metal and 38k to 60k in OpenCL. This is not affecting the Luxmark results and I think because its an old benchmark tool anyway, nor Engine Heaven but all good. Thanks for sharing

    2019 Mac Pro is Now Available at Apple.com

    When this website did a question about "what is the reason makes you to Hackintosh?", lots of people choose the answer "because Apple doesn't release high end specs we need, price is no problem". And they strongly argued about that. Now lets see if those people stop Hackintoshing and buy Apple...

    AMD Radeon Navi GPU

    Thats right, all reference are from AMD only, if you watch "Actually Hardcore Overclocking" YouTube channel, the guy is an expert on GPU electronics and stuff, he does the most detailed analyses on GPU boards components and he said exactly the same about reference branding. And even more...

    AMD Radeon Navi GPU

    I had that, too, on my Vega 64 but I think that was from iStatMenus not from VirtualSMC plug-in, HWSensors-3_r240 had that ability as well but depending on the GPU indication command not depending on any plug-in. Now as for iStatMenus 6.40 there is no temps info for my Navi, let's hope newer...

    AMD Radeon Navi GPU

    This one is modified for 5700XT and works with Slice FakeSMC. However you need to create SSDT in order to have System fans indication, this is how Slice plug-ins work, I personally didn't bother to create that.

    AMD Radeon Navi GPU

    If I understand correctly, you used VirtualSMC with FakeSMC? if yes then its wrong coz VirtualSMC is the alternative to FakeSMC and vise versa, never both.. And each one has its own plug-ins, you cannot mix them. VirtualSMC, Rehabman FakeSMC and Slice FakeSMC are three different solutions and...

    AMD Radeon Navi GPU

    For temps I'm using Slice Fakesmc along with modified RadeonMonitor.kexts for Navi (I can provide if you need them), however all I can see is temps in real time with iStatMenus app with clock/processor bars, no numbers tho. About the errors I have no idea, my Sapphire reference 5700XT runs...

    AMD Radeon Navi GPU

    I think its because is still early support for the card, or maybe this benchmark tools are getting old for new GPU. I remember early Vega 64 support where the system crashed on any OpenCL test, this time looks better with Navi. Anyway, here is a good first signs on how 5700XT perform, even...

    Will my Nvidia Graphics Card work with macOS ? List of Desktop Cards with Native Support

    Nvidia never did webdriver for hackintoshers, all that support was for old modular Mac Pros to be able to have a Nvidia GPU inside, in addition to that they could continue doing webdriver for any recent Mac user using external GPU. Hackintoshers just take that as an advantage and installed it on...
