    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    So the upgrade from my z370 AORUS g7 was quite simple. I starteD with iMac 19,1 and was running great, I then made the dubious decision to update my video card to a Radeon VII w 16GB RAM and also added an additional 32GB of matching RAM. Well the RAM went/out a hitch but the GPM not so smooth...

    Quick update, I got The Titan Ridge Card in today after scrambling to find the extra power adaptors for my PSU to add the extra power needed for this card and finally plugged it all in. (Unlike the Alpine Ridge which I returned. Unfortunately, this thing has an extra USB connection as well as...

    Thank you... Is this just for Alpine ridge or would it work for Titan Ridge? I returned the Alpine card and ordered the Titan :( I can return the Titan and reorder the Alpine? The system has been rock solid with my current build with a Fenvi WiFi card, Vega 64 and 3 1TB NVMe SSD's. My Titan gets...

    Ha I updated to Catalina Last night and Thank you for the confidence went w/out a hitch! Smooth as butter upgrade :) So now Im really getting Ballsy, I got the Alpine Ridge TB3 card before and could not get stable, it seems most of the comments I read with Titan Ridge seem to have greater...

    I just returned my 7,1 Mac Pro w/ 12cores 32 gigs and my 3rd party Vega 64.. Honestly I just couldn't come to terms with spending $8k on a machine that frankly performed slightly better than this machine and the fact I couldn't get the Vega VII to run perfectly (Fans spin up at sleep) and also...

    Congrats man.. How ya liking the upgrade ? I see your running Catalina, not sure why other than being a glutton for punishment, But Ive been toying with the idea of upgrading to it over Mojave? I have the Vega 64 which I love I just bought the vII but not sure if it will have the sleep issue and...

    Have you ever used the Hackintool to properly patch the USB? I’m trying to run it now. See if that makes any difference. I just don’t know if I need turn turn on or off any settings in my config? I deleted the patched SSDT so it wouldn’t conflict. I guess we’ll see if I can follow the...

    My external USB box is there with and with out the SSDT. I changed the USB Type C cable, replaced it with another and it works again. Everything seems to be working OK. I'm just trying to figure out which ports are working right and which are not seems to be the issue. I use Skype for my work...

    [Success] GIGABYTE Z370 Gaming 7 + Intel Core i7-8700K + RX 580 + (2x) Dell P2715Q 4k @ 60Hz

    So I installed the SSDT, and it booted right up multiple times which was great. Only drawback is now my single USB type c port is not working? I just got to my hotel out of town and didn’t have a lot of time to mess with it. I’ll be back tomorrow night and will play a bit more. But it didn't...

    Thanks again, Scott. I will install in the AM and let you know. I'm glad I had something that looked decent in my EFI. :lol:

    It was a real bonus that the Envoy Pro was a standard NVMe SSD and not the Apple spec. I wish TB3 wasn’t such a nightmare. The OWC Thunder dock was really a nice piece of hardware and addition. I guess Ebay or hold off for hope?? None the less, I appreciate you helping me see the problem and...

    OK, the edit you had has worked outta the gate. Thankyou much! I added my Atheros kext to kext/other filer in the EFI and all seems to be working. :) I had a couple odd errors but have since disappeared since the 3rd boot. Hope it stays stable. So far, running my creative suit with no issues but...

    Somehow I got it running by moving my fenvi fv-ac1900 wifi card to the top slot formally occupied by the TB3 Alpine card? Whatever it worked. System seems stable, OWC 1TB ssd is working flawlessly and I think I have an extra Thunderbolt3 dock in my possession but overall its working, I don't...

    OK. I took your advice and pulled the TB3 card rebooted 10 times no problem. I then got slick, and figured I want my cake and eat it, too, & decided to put my 1TB NVMe OWC stick in the empty slot. Well, now getting an error ptidsensors started and then crashes?

    I have a 1TB OWC Envoy, OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock.. The main reason I wanted the Hackintosh once more was for the added speed (As a means to thwart me from the temptation of buying a new Mac Pro, Honestly I really believe its way overpriced, If I was to stay on the Hack Id really want it running...
