    AMD Radeon Navi GPU

    Okay, found Mattystonnie and did what he outline here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/amd-radeon-performance-enhanced-ssdt.296555/ But what exactly does this do? From his description, it seems to enhance performance on navi cards. But it doesn't seem to do anything to turn on the fans. On...

    AMD Radeon Navi GPU

    Yep. Two separate cables off two rails. One is 8-pin, the other 6-pin. The PSU came with those two cables. The PSU's wattage is a bit lower than I'd like. Originally, I wanted something ~750, but the case I'm using (Lian Li TU150) requires an SFF PSU, and those are hard to find during this...

    600W. It's a corsair sff600 80+platinum.

    AMD Radeon Navi GPU

    After RMA replacing my Gigabyte 5700xt, the snap crackle pop crash seems to be fixed (cross fingers), but then I get a new problem: overheating. First sign was seeing my 970 EVO running hot, around 65 C even when idle. Thought it was just the drive itself, then realized it was the whole...

    mobo overheating but only in macos

    I have the following system: * Asus Z390-i mini-ITX mobo * i7-8700k * Gigabyte RX-5700xt gaming oc * G.Skill Ripjaw 2x16GB * Samsung 970 EVO pro (Catalina installed) * Sabrent Rocket 1TB (Windows 10) Among other problems (mainly re: 5700xt), the motherboard overheats like crazy very fast, even...

    AMD Radeon Navi GPU

    Yeah, that's right. I figured there will be some turbulence with some mainstream apps, and maybe I could (or not) deal with those. But it's problems with basic input/output that's making Catalina intolerable. I'm a southpaw, and have been using Razer Orochi ambidextrous mouse for a long time...

    AMD Radeon Navi GPU

    @Leesureon and @LordHumungus, Good to know. Thanks. I'll try out various SMBIOS ID's and report back for those who may be curious. (actually, reading some previous posts here, some of you had tried them out and reported back...) But while I have the ears/eyes of you experts, I'd like to ask...

    Is changing the system just a matter of modifying the config.plist accordingly, or are there more things to modify? S

    Did Catalina fry my 5700XT?

    Also, I just tried out your OC EFI. Works fine. I had tried ModMike's EFI's (both clover ones and OC ones), and they never worked for me for some reason. Same think when I tried one from pastrychef, iDrakus, et al. I was able to create one of my own, after spending a whole day on it couple of...

    Did Catalina fry my 5700XT?

    I tried Cinebench r20 on Windows a few times, and it worked fine, albeit slower than I'd like. Which is why I'm thinking it's Catalina's fault, esp since reading the many others' posts about their 5700xt crashing under various versions of Catalina. I wouldn't mind crashing if it didn't sound...

    AMD Radeon Navi GPU

    Perhaps I have a faulty card. Man, what a pain. I already had to replace the mobo. And now maybe the card too. The funny thing is that the GPU's pretty well behaved when doing light stuff like watching youtube, even at 4k. After the first crash, I tried again to watch Netflix at its highest res...

    Did Catalina fry my 5700XT?

    I have the minimum PSU, a Corsair SF600 Platinum 600W one. Because of my chassis required an SFF PSU, I had a tough time finding one anywhere. I'd have preferred higher wattage for some headroom, but the guy at a local computer shop said pickings slim due to covid. Maybe it's the PSU, dunno. But...

    AMD Radeon Navi GPU

    Interesting thread. Seems to be very related to what I'm going through. I just finished building a new hackintosh and I too got a couple crashes in Catalina 10.15.6. And I also think they're something to with my 5700xt (Gigabyte Gaming OC). But to those of you who had crashes, have you had...
