    pastrychef's Asus ROG Strix Z370-G Gaming (WI-FI AC) build w/ i9-9900K + AMD Vega 56

    Compared to 9900K, the 9900KS is ~6% faster at ~34% higher TDP, which doesn't sound like a good deal. At least, it's only slightly more expensive, so if you need it now (i.e. you have heavily threaded workloads) and you can find it, then I'd say go for it. Although keep in mind that soon (Q1...

    Hi @Scott1204 Regarding fan noise, I see reports from several users in your position and I'd like to share some thoughts. First of all, the NF-A12x25 is a fantastic fan (although at a premium price), but its difference in noise performance is not as dramatic as it appears, compared to the...

    [Help] AppleALC Kernel Panic after Catalina update

    What you describe sounds quite different from what's being discussed and doesn't seem to be an audio issue (more like a graphics issue). Have a look at the system.log (under the Console app) or generate a boot.log and have a look there for any pointers. Hackintoshing is a tinkerer's hobby, so to...

    While in BIOS, press F6 to enter Q-Fan configuration. From there you can select the fan header that you have your fans connected to and adjust the fan curves to something less offensive. You can make them whisper quiet if you want, at the expense of higher temperatures of course.

    I think that this particular one would have happened even under OpenCore, since he added a "quirk" there to handle it. But yes, you are right, it was made very clear that they don't care for Clover. They might be right, OpenCore might be significantly cleaner/better. I'll give it a try.

    Probably, but I'm not really sure. This is the explanation that vit9696 provided:

    Hey @pastrychef an update on this, in case you want to consider it for your EFI folder. vit9696 had a look at it and provided a kernel patch as a workaround. Several users seem to face this panic on wake, under Catalina. Find: 63 6F 6D 2E 61 70 70 6C 65 00 5F 5F 6B 65 72 6E 65 6C 5F 5F 00...

    [Help] AppleALC Kernel Panic after Catalina update

    To be fair, it was not just vit9696. Others contributed to firstly convince him that this was an actual problem and secondly with testing/reporting. Going forward I think that anyone wanting to use the kexts under acidanthera (lilu, WhatEverGreen, AppleALC, etc), would have to move to OpenCore...

    Yes I tried version 1.2.8 of AppleALC and although it fixes the kernel panic, I lose audio on wake. It seems others are facing this issue as well: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/help-applealc-kernel-panic-after-catalina-update.284654/ In any case, I filed a bug report on Github and we'll...

    [Help] AppleALC Kernel Panic after Catalina update

    I'm having the same problem as well and I opened an issue on Github. Hopefully it'll be resolved soon.

    No, they are injected via Clover. Sure and thanks again. panic(cpu 0 caller 0xffffff801c4290b7): "AppleHDAHDMI_DPDriver::setPowerState(0xffffff8067cc9500 : 0xffffff7f9f365730, 0 -> 1) timed out after 10175...

    Hey @pastrychef, I recently upgraded to Catalina and been getting KPs after wake from sleep. They seem to be caused by some audio issue (I'm using AppleALC v1.4.2 and mostly mirrored your EFI/Clover settings). panic(cpu 0 caller 0xffffff80010290b7)...

    Observations One Hour into WWDC 2019

    I'm not sure if this M/B supports this CPU and generally these are server/workstation motherboards with limited features and I/O (e.g. this doesn't include audio codecs, has only 2 USBs, etc.). But yes, you are right, you might be able to make it work for much cheaper, by also using lower end...

    Observations One Hour into WWDC 2019

    No, these are pretty much Radeon Instinct MI60 cards, which are effectively fully enabled Radeon VIIs, with twice the VRAM and no FP64 limits. These cards are super expensive and I wouldn't be surprised if a Radeon Pro Vega II Duo MPX module, cost $10,000+. Also, theoretically, a Radeon VII...

    Where you getting memory errors? Yeah, I saw the same when adjusting memory timings, but I tend not to put too much credence to Geekbench scores. It's very synthetic.
