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

    Are you able to upload your entire EFI folder? I already have a good working installation of Mojave on a Gigabyte Z370 HD3 and planning on upgrading the board to the Designare. I will not be going through a reinstallation, so just replacing the current EFI folder and making small changes is the...

    macOS 10.14.1 Update

    Note: You do NOT need to update Lilu, AppleALC or Whatevergreen; if those kexts were working in 10.14.0. I did not and the only minor issue I had was my monitor went blank for about a few minutes during the update process. But after waiting it out, the system rebooted and finished reinstalling...

    Success - Z370-HD3 i5-8600K - RX 580 Build

    You didn't describe exactly what the sleep problem is? Does it go to sleep and wake up immediately? Or does it go to sleep and never wake up? Or something else? I had the problem of it going to sleep and waking up immediately, but that was due to my card reader installed into one of the USB...

    macOS Mojave is Now Available on the Mac App Store

    I did some research and found out Apple did remove Wi-Fi/Bluetooth support for some Atheros cards AR92xx/93xx in Mojave. I also found out you can get it back with a little easy trick: On High Sierra 10.13.6, go to System > Library > Extensions > IO80211Familly.kext > Contents > Plugins Copy...

    macOS Mojave is Now Available on the Mac App Store

    It also broke my Wi-Fi. I was using a $20 Fenvi PCI-e Wi-Fi card I bought off Amazon. It has an Atheros chipset (not sure the exact model). It was working out of the box with no additional kexts or patches since Sierra. Not sure if Apple have disabled support for it in Mojave. I'm not going to...

    macOS Mojave is Now Available on the Mac App Store

    The upgrade was a bit of a hassle. First attempt, I rebooted to a stuck loading bar that filled up to a tiny amount. I then upgraded Clover, FakeSMC, Lilu and Whatevergreen to latest versions available. That fixed the loading bar issue. Then installation went smooth and fine thereafter. Upon...

    Success - Z370-HD3 i5-8600K - RX 580 Build

    So the fans are okay even if you disable the Serial and Parallel Ports in SuperIO? For me that is the only reason for the fans issue after sleep. If I leave that setting alone (both enabled) then the fans are fine. But leaving those ports enabled doesn't even have any effect on functionality in...

    Success - Z370-HD3 i5-8600K - RX 580 Build

    Anyone else have issues with external USB drives plugged in getting ejected after sleep with "Disk Not Ejected Properly" messages? I have narrowed it down to the culprit being having XMP Profile turned on in the BIOS. Without it, external USB drives do not get ejected after sleep. I have also...

    Success - Z370-HD3 i5-8600K - RX 580 Build

    Found something interesting regarding the fan speed problem after sleep: So I was on F7 and updated to F8a. After a BIOS update, everything resets back to factory defaults. I then went and changed settings to the usual basics required for macOS. However, this time I decided to change the RGB...

    Success - Z370-HD3 i5-8600K - RX 580 Build

    Looks like Gigabyte released BIOS version F8a: https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/Z370-HD3-rev-10#support-dl-bios I'm currently running F7 and can't say I have issues with fans running at full speed on wake up. I'm also using darkwake=0 instead of darkwake=10 as the OP (if I choose no...

    [Guide] HP 6300 Pro / HP 8300 Elite - A 100 percent Working and Easily Affordable CustoMac

    Well, it's been a fun run for my HP 8300 Elite CMT. I just sold it off and went for a i5-8400 custom build. Not that the performance was bad (it was actually spectacular), but I just had too many issues with it—random reboots/black screen after sleep with Nvidia and system wide lock ups with...

    [Guide] HP 6300 Pro / HP 8300 Elite - A 100 percent Working and Easily Affordable CustoMac

    It looks like I may have sorted it out myself. In config.plist changed ig-platform-id to 0x01620005 for HD4000, installed Whatevergreen.kext, Lilu.kext and enabled -rad4200 as a boot flag. The freezing has stopped for awhile and system appears to be stable. I must say that even though the RX 560...

    [Guide] HP 6300 Pro / HP 8300 Elite - A 100 percent Working and Easily Affordable CustoMac

    I need some help. I recently switched from a 1050 Ti to a RX 560. Everything works well except I randomly get system lock ups where everything on the screen freezes but I am still able to move my mouse, requiring a hard reset. I am running 10.13.4 without whatevergreen.kext or any extra...

    [Guide] HP 6300 Pro / HP 8300 Elite - A 100 percent Working and Easily Affordable CustoMac

    Does the HP 8300 CMT DisplayPort supports 4K 60Hz resolution? After hooking up my monitor to the port I just get a black screen, not even the BIOS shows up. Using i7-3770 so it should have integrated graphics support.

    [Guide] HP 6300 Pro / HP 8300 Elite - A 100 percent Working and Easily Affordable CustoMac

    I installed Sierra then High Sierra when it was available on the App Store (both clean and not updates). I find that it took a lot more twiddling and work to get High Sierra to work with my HP 8300 (upgraded to a 1050 Ti GPU). The main issue was that I kept getting flashing black screens after...
