    Graphic Designer Review: ASUS ProArt Display PA278QV

    When I first got the ASUS 2560 x 1440 monitor I noticed that text felt a tiny bit smaller than the text on my older Dell monitor. How much smaller? 2% 5%? Noticeable. My old Dell was a 1920 x 1200. This difference is minor and after using the ASUS monitor for a week, I did not even notice it...

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

    Pastrychef, what's the fastest CPU this Z370-G motherboard will easily support? Currently, I have: Intel Core i7-8700 1 Processor, 6 Cores, 12 Threads Identifier GenuineIntel Family 6 Model 158 Stepping 10 Base Frequency 3.20 GHz That chip runs cool, doesn't take much power, and zero...

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

    And now -- reporting some slightly strange behavior in Opencore 0.6.6 -- and a fix for now. I used the "EFI OpenCore 0.6.6 Z370G" folder you made and set up a system with two SSD drives (so I can boot from either) with identical EFI folders with the config.plist modified to include my serial...

    Oooof. Not exactly simple. Cumbersome but I will give it a try. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

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

    After running Clover for a long time I just bit the bullet and switched to Opencore. Today I downloaded your premade "EFI OpenCore 0.6.6 Z370G" zip folder, put in my particular info and booted up. Seems to run 100% OOTB. Startup disk easily selected in mac prefs. The only thing that is not...

    Graphic Designer Review: ASUS ProArt Display PA278QV

    I recently upgraded from my older Dell 24-inch UltraSharp PremierColor Monitor U2413. The old Dell was a very color-accurate expensive workhorse monitor in WUXA resolution (1920 x 1200.) It was great for accurate color especially in photos, web design, etc. The Dell display looked very faithful...

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

    SOLVED> Holy cow! I finally tried this with a different monitor and it seems the "pink video" problem is unique to my Dell Ultrasharp monitor in this hardware setup (Dell 24 UltraSharp with PremierColor Monitor - U2413) which is admittedly getting older maybe vintage 2014. When I hooked it up to...

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

    It is not the 580 card. tried running my system with two older Radeon video cards. Got the exact same problem of a pink overlay box on any video (Firefox, Safari, Chrome). Also any MP4 played with QuickTime. So it does not seem to be a problem specific to any video card, display cable, or EFI...

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

    @pastrychef I have a slightly odd hardware issue. I get a pink windowing problem occasionally running OSX Mojave (10.14.3-10-14.6) and it doesn't matter if I am using Opencore EFI or Clover EFI. In both cases, I get occasional screen color-shifts. It's like the graphics windowing system is...

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

    I have this all working now. One thing that seemed to help (not sure if this was curative or not) was updating all EFI drive folders with your latest Clover 5122 folder. I just copied that over to all the non-Opencore drives and it started working with all drives appearing on desktop even booted...

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

    @pastrychef , I share my experience of installing Opencore Bootloader on the Asus ROG Strix Z370-G. Basically I had success on the first attempt via your premade zip folder “EFI OpenCore 0.6.1 Z370G” but there were a few learning points which may help others trying this. I am not genius-expert...

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

    I am updating my Strix Z370-G with a couple of new 1 TB Samsung 860 EVO drives. I always have at least 2 drives in my system so I can have a weekly clone made via carbon copy cloner. I have been using Clover as a bootloader but I am interested in switching to Opencore since it seems a little...

    @pastrychef I have been running this build (Asus ROG Strix Z370-G, 6-core i7, Sapphire Radeon RX 580) rock solid under OSX Mojave 10.14.3 and have not even bothered to upgrade to Catalina. A problem has developed though -- A few times daily I will get a momentary screen of (black -- or grey...
