    Asus X299 - Support

    They're not terrible - they do work - but they're not niggle free. I often have to unplug and replug them in after waking from sleep. There's still no decent, true 5K displays on the market. Lots of weird half-res things like the LG 5K2K. Apparently there are new 5K displays coming later this...

    Asus X299 - Support

    I've seen this problem outlined once or twice in the past, but I'm hoping that someone else has hit it and found a solution: I have the ASUS Prime X299 Deluxe (original, not II), with a Sapphire NITRO+ RX Vega 64 8Gb, and a Gigabyte Titan Ridge Thunderbolt 3 PCIe card installed. I run my...

    Absolutely! Send me a DM with your GitHub username if you'd like write access and I'll add you.

    Asus X299 - Support

    If anyone is interested in having a look at what my OpenCore configuration looks like, I've uploaded it to https://github.com/asus-x299-hackintosh/opencore It might be interesting to install this on an external USB disk and have a play, but it's pretty heavily customised to my setup right now...

    Asus X299 - Support

    Yes, I do. There’s a little bit of boot text right before the FileVault login, too, but I haven’t had time to debug that much yet.

    Asus X299 - Support

    It's fast to boot - really fast. I'm just tidying up my configs now, but it wasn't a huge amount of work to move over from Clover - maybe an evening.

    Asus X299 - Support

    Yep, great idea. Let’s setup a GitHub community! I'll happily contribute my OpenCore boot loader configuration.

    iMac Pro X299 - Live the Future now with macOS 10.14 Mojave [Successful Build/Extended Guide]

    It has been a while - how did the Sage fare? Do you know if it still requires the CSM enabled workaround for setups like mine? I'm still tossing up if $1K AUD is worth it for fixing an annoyance like this (pragmatically, no, I guess).

    LG UltraFine 5K Build

    I have an ASUS X299 Deluxe, and I have the mobo header and additional PCI-e power cables running to the Titan Ridge card. I couldn't answer if this thing works without the motherboard header - I would assume it doesn't work properly, so the Aorus is probably a better option if you need this...

    LG UltraFine 5K Build

    @tholstro yes, they all work for me (with a caveat, see below) - you may need to look at implementing an SSDT to get them up and working. I use a slightly modified version of @kgp's SSDT from https://github.com/KGP/X299-System-SSDTs/blob/master/Sources/SSDT-X299-TB3HP.dsl So the big (big)...

    LG UltraFine 5K Build

    I’m really sorry! It’s a nice display, but the connection options suck. It’s honestly the one thing I’d change if I were building my machine over.

    LG UltraFine 5K Build

    It can't be over one DisplayPort stream (even if it is v1.4). The LG Ultrafine series aren't compatible with DP 1.4 - they require 2 x DP 1.2. If I unplug one of my DisplayPort inputs into my Titan Ridge controller, macOS still reports that it's running at 5K resolution, but the output is...

    LG UltraFine 5K Build

    @tholstro that setup won't be running your LG 5K display at full resolution, as there is only one input DisplayPort on that motherboard. It'll look close (and report that it is), but if you compare it to a device that's actually running retina resolution, you'll see the text isn't crisp. I am...

    LG UltraFine 5K Build

    I can confirm, having tried this myself with a Titan Ridge card in my build. The DP 1.4 cable doesn't send anything to the LG Ultrafine 5K display. You need the two DP 1.2 cables for it to function properly.

    Yep, more than happy to wait. That’s an $1100 AUD motherboard
