    X299 Big Sur Support

    I'll be interested to check it out too - I've got my computer back now and am quite a few releases behind, its overdue some upgrades! Will probably get around to it at the weekend (also need to re do my USB map...)

    X299 Big Sur Support

    I don't think you can go wrong with the 970 evo plus - I went with Sabrent Rockets which are less expensive and perform great but I guess if you're buying a 3090 you don't really care about cost! :lol: I'm 100% happy with my Prime X299-A II btw - I had a good experience with MSI X299 Pro with...

    X299 Big Sur Support

    I think that's probably your issue - most real Mac's have an en0 and its probably poorly coded app that for whatever reason always tries to bind something to, or reference a MAC address on that interface or something. What do you have instead of en0? Also take a look at the Dortania guide on...

    X299 Big Sur Support

    Excellent work! :clap: I can't wait to get my machine back and get this implemented on mine, interested to take a look at the changes - how much did you have to change? Thank you :thumbup:

    X299 Big Sur Support

    @Thekeko what NZXT is it? If its one of the later USB controlled models in MacOS you won't have control of the pump speed, it'll be on minimum duty/rpm. Unless you've either A) installed some other utility like liquidctl and built a startup script to enable it or B) from cold you'd need to boot...

    X299 Big Sur Support

    First thing I would check for is any short - there was a loose metal retaining bracket on my Prime A-II that clipped the usb/ps2 ports to the plastic I/O shroud. I had similar symptoms to what you describe and sometimes when it would post it would then halt saying something like “overcurrent...

    X299 Big Sur Support

    When my container finishes crossing the Indian Ocean I’ll take a look into it - you could be right. :) At least with either with a an updated USBmap or the patches we know it can work well. I guess it depends on the price you can get it for and your other plans for TB or overclocking (VRM...

    X299 Big Sur Support

    I never had any problems with the ASM3142 on any of my other boards - The MSI X299 Pro and Aorus Ultra Gaming Pro have the same chip but neither of those need any patches so it must be something specific to this board rather than the inclusion of the chip itself - to be honest I just followed...

    ASUS X299 Monterey Support

    I guess if you have the first model it wouldn't be much of an upgrade but I really love mine. ;) For me it works flawlessly and I have no issues with the USB ports or mapping them - the quanitity of ports and layout of the board mean it falls within the 15 port limit even with all external and...

    ASUS X299 Monterey Support

    Nice one @djlild7hina i wondered when we’d start the next X299 thread. :) Sadly (or excitingly) my X299 is currently on board a container ship making its way towards Australia so I’ll be out of action for a couple of months until it arrives, but I’ll be following along with interest until then...

    X299 Big Sur Support

    Ok I stand corrected, if its a Kepler GK110 based card it should have support. https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/will-my-nvidia-graphics-card-work-with-macos-list-of-desktop-cards-with-native-support.283700/ Have you removed the following two entries of "device properties" section in...

    X299 Big Sur Support

    Yes - I chose not to map those 3 USB 2.0 ports so I could remain under the 15 port limit. It is possible to create a virtual device and map the USB 2.0 ports to that so you can remain under 15 ports per controller but it gets messy and I didn't need those USB 2.0 anyway. But I'm almost 100%...

    X299 Big Sur Support

    I think you’ll need to check some BIOS settings, as I no longer have the board I can’t remember my exact setup, but with that EFI everything worked perfectly except for NVRAM. Even sleep/wake, shutdown etc. have you tried following the guide here, this has always been my first port of call and...

    X299 Big Sur Support

    I'm going a little off topic here too... But would you mind putting together an OC guide? I know there are tons of guides out there but they always seem to target the highest possible all-core ratio's at insane power levels and I really want to get my head around a "balanced" overclock on X299...

    X299 Big Sur Support

    Im not sure that its actually a USB issue, I had MSI X299 Pro and there were many misleading pointers until I realised it was all related to broken NVRAM. (Presuming you actually have a complete set of working SSDT's for it) You'll need to install this following the method provided by...
