    Stork's MyHero II Build: ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z370 HERO X - i7-8700K - AMD RX 580

    I searched around a lot and I had a quick look at the post you suggested to me too, but I didn't find any references to my video card, however I will re-read it with more attention. After some searching with zero results, I tried to ask Pastrychef who is an expert here in the forum and also has...

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    As promised I'm here to leave you this information: apart from problems I have with the values that are measured by the motherboard (but only for the processor) in any operating system (including the BIOS), I can confirm that the Kext family related to FakeSMC (therefore also the GPUsensor)...

    Stork's MyHero II Build: ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z370 HERO X - i7-8700K - AMD RX 580

    Thank you for taking the test right away and sharing the results. Yes, Cinebench R20 is a remarkable test for the processor, it sterss it even more than what happens with a rendering created with a 3D program and I don't know how it does it, but I think it's because it is optimized to ask only...

    Stork's MyHero II Build: ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z370 HERO X - i7-8700K - AMD RX 580

    Thanks for the detailed reply. It took me a while because I wanted to deepen. Although I hardly changed anything on the BIOS, I had cloned the XMP settings from the previous version, so first I went to put them back in Auto, but nothing has changed in the behavior of the readings and...

    Stork's MyHero II Build: ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z370 HERO X - i7-8700K - AMD RX 580

    Hi @Stork and @c0c0p0ps I'm here to open ask for a comparison with your experiences regarding updating the BIOS to version 2402. I made this update at a particular time, when I'm also trying to figure out if I have a way to switch to VirtualSMC from FakeSMC (maybe I've already mentioned it)...

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    Thanks for the quick reply, as always ...:) So that's a big deal, but may I ask you how do you monitor that temperature for the video card or do you just without it? Can I still ask you if the procedure I used to try the replacement is correct or if some step is missing (for example in the...

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    Greetings to all here. Since in this configuration (created by an expert) there is my own video card, I allow myself to ask a few questions @pastrychef, hoping that you have the patience and time to take a look at it. I come straight to the point: until now I have always used the family of kext...

    Stork's MyHero II Build: ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z370 HERO X - i7-8700K - AMD RX 580

    Thanks for opening this theme, I was left with the 2302 necessary to be able to install the new processor (from 1801) and then I have not done any updates. However all the values worked perfectly for me, perhaps because I have always used FakeSMC and derivatives, instead of VirtualSMC. Now I...

    Stork's MyHero II Build: ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z370 HERO X - i7-8700K - AMD RX 580

    It comes from the SampleCustom.plist which is located in the Docs folder of the Open Core base package and is modified to work on this MB, without many additions or analyzes to make it more widely compatible. If you add that it still comes from knowledge being studied, you will surely understand...

    Stork's MyHero II Build: ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z370 HERO X - i7-8700K - AMD RX 580

    This is an EFI created for this configuration (or rather for my configuration, which in any case is totally compatible with that of this thread, from which it originates and then has been updated) In the EFI there are minimum interventions (I'm learning ... Radeonboost is missing for example)...

    The invisible desktop PC - Interesting but completely impractical

    I do not understand why instead of using all those small fans, with all the surface available, he did not place horizontally normal or even larger fans in push on one side and in pull on the other (not above/below the table obviously:p), then using the same flow guiding system he used...

    The invisible desktop PC - Interesting but completely impractical

    This was done months before that, with more performing components and liquid cooling. Apparently it works pretty well. For aesthetics everyone has their own tastes ... however in a suitable environment it can be a good "image piece" ... There are other previous videos that describe the...

    Is Big Sur Public Beta1 Ready to be Primary System?

    I agree: I'm just noticing the difference between how I actually used Catalina last year to how I have but I almost never start Big Sur this year. Basically I'm not experiencing the Beta at all this year.

    Is Big Sur Public Beta1 Ready to be Primary System?

    The question was clear, and in fact the answer was aimed at being as exhaustive as possible, going beyond the fact of playing with something new, but also playing, having fun and getting curiosity have their meaning ... For me it basically served to force me to study a bit the basics of Open...
