    Does anyone know if the latest drivers solve the lag issue? the .159 one?

    Try this URL: http://images.nvidia.com/mac/pkg/387/WebDriver-387.10.10.10.25.156.pkg It'll be a manual download, but worked for me to get that package. Looks line nvidia needs to fix some stuff on their side.

    pastrychef's Asus ROG Strix Z370-G Gaming (WI-FI AC) build w/ i9-9900K + AMD 6600 XT

    It turns out I had bad memory. If I put one set of DIMMs into 0/2, the board would not POST, while the other set would POST in either 0/2 or 1/3, even though OSX would not boot if no memory was installed in 0/2. I now have 64 GB installed, and while I had to specify the sizes in config.plist...

    Great! :) . I wasn't trying to convince you it wasn't, I was trying to convince you to add a useful tool to your arsenal of knowledge, as you are extremely helpful.

    I understand that the ram disk might be a way to test this, but my knowledge of how memory management on Unix-like systems works tells me that wired memory is guaranteed not to be swapped out, and must only reside in physical RAM, and at the specific address it is currently mapped into. The OS...

    A ram disk might work; the Homebrew installed "memtester" also wires the memory, so it cannot cause swapping, and must use actual physical RAM. If it cannot allocate enough (say, you only have 32 and you try to use 30 or so) it will fail to allocate it. From experience, this is the best method...

    pastrychef's Asus ROG Strix Z370-G Gaming (WI-FI AC) build w/ i9-9900K + AMD 6600 XT

    Update: if I enable XMP in the BIOS and Clover, when the system boots, the RAM is listed as it's max (3000 Mhz) and the part number and manufacturer are correctly read. This is for 2 sticks; I still can't get past a failure to boot with all four installed with or without the memory's...

    I can't even get osx to boot with all four sticks inserted. I'm going to run a memtest on the box over night with all four installed to ensure I don't have a hardware issue. I'd not trust that your system identified 64 GB, since if I define all four sticks and boot, the system claims it has 64...

    Thanks for the quick reply! I'm currently not overclocking in any way; I want to get a system that I believe is stable as a baseline before I start fiddling around in unknown territory. In the BIOS, XMP is disabled, and each of the 4 sticks comes up as 2133 Mhz, and the CPU as 3.7 Ghz. I...

    Coffee Lake - i7 8700K + ASUS PRIME Z370-A attempt

    For those playing with memory here, I have what I think is a similar issue: If I hard-code the DIMM information in the SMBIOS section to include all 4 DIMMs, the machine boots and APPEARS to detect all the sticks. However, I am not convinced it really works, as at some point the machine will...

    Hey there. I have a similar system, but with a z370 E board. It is rock solid with 2x16 GB installed in (numbered from the CPU) slots 0 and 2. If I install things in 1, 3 it will not boot. I have seen others mention this as well. However, if I install memory in all four slots, it will boot...

    Lepus48's Asus Strix Z370-F, with i7-8700k / RX 570 / 2x 4k Monitors

    Ahh yes, I have the E version apparently, which has WiFi and Bluetooth built in. I do see this trend a lot, where "working" means "with added hardware" but that's not clear when you start out what "working" means.

    Lepus48's Asus Strix Z370-F, with i7-8700k / RX 570 / 2x 4k Monitors

    You indicate that wifi and bluetooth work, but I don't see how you enabled them, or if they just worked. I have this same motherboard, and while the bluetooth adapter is found in the USB list, it's not enabled as an actual bluetooth device. Also, the built-in wifi isn't detected. Did you do...

    Asus Z370 gaming F, wifi, and bluetooth

    I've seen many references to people marking these things as "working" but I am not sure how they managed it. This is my first attempt at a hackintosh, and while it's been successful to this point, I'm not sure about what is needed to fool OSX into finding these devices, or what drivers need to...
