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

    Is it no longer necessary to unlock MSR on newer BIOS versions? Gigabyte added the CFG lock option in BIOS? That was the main reason I wasn't updating BIOS since i didn't want to bother with MSR unlock again. Thanks, g\

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

    Hello @CaseySJ, Thanks for keeping this thread so active and helpful. I am hoping you can help get my Thunderbolt card working on one of my X99 systems. I have flashed cards working very well in 3 other systems including Z390 Designare. But this X99 system seems a bit tricky. I have attached...

    Hopefully near universal USB 3.0 driver for 3rd part controllers in 10.8.x

    This is an unsupported controller. in fact i think it might be the only one that's unsupported at this point since VIA has been working for a few macOS versions now, fresco has always worked, and asmedia works well now too. Get a different controller. Ages ago we had these working with crappy...

    Z490 & Z590

    While its pretty unlikely apple will release any rocket-lake or z590 based macs, it is still possible they will release some machines with intel CPUs. The most likely one would be an update to the mac pro. But when they announced the M1, they also said they were going to continue to support...

    << Solved >> iOS Simulator not booting any device / Photos app crashing

    HDMI works if you use @CaseySJ 's lengthy opencore device property entry for the iGPU and change the device-id to 923E0000 per @benvp. g\

    i9-10900K Build Discussion

    yep, this did the trick. at first using the very basic device property entry @benvp posted caused the HDMI output to stop working once the system boots to macOS desktop (could still connect over RDP, and macOS would see the monitor connected, but monitor would say no signal). Displayport worked...

    i9-10900K Build Discussion

    Whats your status with this? I have this board now and would love to get it up and running 10.15.7- main issue i have so far is using just iGPU i have a lot of graphics related crashes. Thanks, g\

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

    Would you mind making a consolidated post with your methods and files attached? i am very interested in testing with this method and making hopefully minor adjustments to get it working on some older machines and client machines (with both built-in AR and AR AIC) since it should require minimum...

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

    But when will you be able to buy a CPU. intel supply has been abysmal for months- years even :-/ i am worried these "new" CPUs could be hard to come by this summer.

    Apple Updates 13" MacBook Pro with 10th Gen Intel CPUs

    IDK, off the top of my head, i don't think there are any comet lake based real macs yet. They will likely be coming. Pretty sure the 16" is still coffee lake but i cant remember. But as mentioned, Comet is essentially the same thing as Coffee and Kaby so it will probably work- at most needing...

    Apple Updates 13" MacBook Pro with 10th Gen Intel CPUs

    Just to be clear, intel has made their "nth generation" marketing very convoluted. These new macbooks will be based on 10nm "Ice Lake" CPUs which have a new architecture and iGPU. The "new" desktop parts are still built on 14nm "Comet Lake", an iteration of old Skylake architecture. So macOS...

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

    Glad there is some rhyme and reason to this issue. Good job damaging your board :p That said, the missing parts are "just" resisters and there is a pretty good chance the board will work fine by simply bridging the space between the missing resisters with a conductive ink /solder pen. should be...

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

    This is totally normal if you have not set up your network correctly. To use jumbo frames (over 1500MTU), all other devices on that network (NICs and SWITCHES) must also be set to use jumbo frames. Otherwise, you will have packet loss and instability. Further, this should only be used on private...

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

    Are you using a system definition which expects iGPU but you disabled iGPU in BIOS? if you use an iGPU expectant system def, such as imac19,1- you need to enable iGPU in headless mode or you will get these types of issues. g\

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

    FWIW i also could not find any chips of the same size/type on the mac pro, certainly not on the io card itself. So either they are using different chips which are incompatible with our clips or they are hiding them well somewhere on the motherboard. g\

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

    good to know, however they have different hashes, what causes that? its starting to look more and more like some of these issues will be more related to motherboard UEFI handling. i hope thats not the case because that might be even more difficult to work out? Want to make a version of...

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

    OK! finally was ab,e to get an ubuntu live disk booting on the mac pro and extract all the firmwares. it was quite a process actually just even getting linux to boot. The good news is it saw all 4 controllers and extracting seems to have worked well. i hope this can lead to something cool...
