Hey everyone! I'm currently working through setting up my Hackintosh for the final time, and getting it fully operational. The last thing I'm trying to work through is some bugs with the TB4 Maple Ridge controller, which I'm getting closer, but having some oddities when working with it.
I finally have my build put together enough that I'm ready to get the last few things settled. I want to see if I can get a little assistance making sure I have everything set up right!

This is my last post for the day.
Ever since I built my hackintosh in 2014, I’ve been using the iMac 14,2 profile.
I know that the iMac 15,1 is closer to my actual build (i7-4790k, dedicated Radeon GPU, etc) but back in the day I recall there being issues with that definition having black...
Hey all! I have question regarding setting up the newer bootchime feature under Clover and/or OpenCore (which I plan to switch to in the coming months)
I have a PowerMac G5 that I’ve modded, and I’ve still retained the hefty internal speaker. For audio in Windows and macOS I’m using an external...
Does anyone have any experience using dual AMD RX 580s in Catalina?
I’m currently running one Sapphire RX 580 Pulse 8GB in my Z97/i7-4790K build, and my brother is selling his, and I figured this is my one chance to have two in my build. I’ve read in another post that Affinity Photo (something...
Hey all, this is in an odd question. iStat menus 6 is showing that my RX 580 is being used 100% during screensaver, but temps are going up any real amazing (hanging around 50°C). As soon as I exit screensaver, the usage drops back to normal levels.
I thought maybe it was the new fancy Drift...
Hello all! Trying to update my build to Catalina. I recall being able to install Beta 3 just fine, but now I can’t get the actual final release to budge. Currently running Mojave. I tried updating Clover to 5070, and moved all the drivers to the new layout, but the installer just hangs after the...
Hello all - I just got in and installed my Sapphire 580 RX Pulse 8GB, and installed it right away. Just using macOS Mojave I get about 5-30 fps in the general UI with nothing else running.

Currently I’m using indentifier 14,2; but I’ve heard that 15,1 is closer to the actual specs I have. Which one...
I just updated from High Sierra 10.13.2 to 10.3.3, and updated the nVidia drivers using Ben Dobell's method on the front page.
My issue is that since the update my wifi card no longer shows up as installed; I've been using the same BCM94360CD card since Yosemite, and it's never...
I'm running into a weird issue since updating to High Sierra; when I boot, this shows up just before the Apple logo shows up. It will also show up before the Clover boot menu if I invoke that.
It's not really an issue that I can tell, but it's a bit annoying. Anyway to fix this?
Hello everyone! I have a couple long term issues that I've been trying to fix to no avail; Screen saver causes lock ups and Power Management.

Hello guys! I was wondering if I could maybe get some advice/ideas from you all.

Hello everybody! I have finally finished my first Hackintosh build, and would love to share it with you all!
I have spent the last couple months putting this baby together, and I have to say I’m extremely pleased. It’s not quite finished yet, but the last couple things...
EDIT: Turns out my original PSU will not work, period. Editing post to reflect that.
Hello all! I've been looking around at PSUs, looking to find one that will fit inside the original G5 Tesla converter enclosure. I bought a Corsair RM750, and in a very expensive experiment found out...
Hello all again! I've searched the internet and all of these forum as best I can, but haven't found an answer. I'm preparing to buy a GPU that would fit inside of the G5 case while still letting the original acrylic cover close - the one that restricts airflow and let's you see inside the case...

Hello everyone! I'm getting very close to being able to purchase all the parts for my first Hackintosh -- a little less than two months now! Before I do that, I just wanted to know if you guys can see any flaws with my parts list:

Hello all again!
My build plan is coming together very quickly! I have a CPU and PSU picked out, and a LaserHive kit on the way! Now I'm looking at fans ~ My plan is to reuse all the fan slots except the HDD blower fan. I thought about replacing the internals of the original fans, but it seems...
