    Z370 Aorus Gaming 5 working great for months, until unplugging for a few days

    I had a pretty perfectly running Z370 Aorus Gaming 5 w Alpine Ridge for the last few months.. hot-swap wasn't working for the Thunderbolt 3, but that's okay. I even got it so unplugging one TB3 port wouldn't disconnect the other (which used to happen before I installed the SSDT's in the hotswap...

    [In progress] SSDT for Thunderbolt 3 Hotplug

    Hoping someone can help - only one TB3 device is showing up now, and I didn’t change anything. I’m using the first thread’s premade Z370 SSDT. I have an Aorus Gaming 5. Do I need to make my own SSDT??

    Power issue? Thunderbolt options under Peripherals missing (Z370 Aorus Gaming 5)

    After a LOT of tinkering, I tried updating bios from F7 to F11 and clearing CMOS. Thunderbolt is in the menu again. However, I’m still not able to use a second thunderbolt device (whether daisy chained or connected to the second TB port). I suspect it’s an SSDT thing, but I have NO idea what...

    Power issue? Thunderbolt options under Peripherals missing (Z370 Aorus Gaming 5)

    I'm trying to figure out why my second TB3 port (or a second daisy chained device on the first TB3 port) won't work.. and now suddenly the Thunderbolt section under BIOS > peripherals is gone!! What happened?? My first TB3 device is still working, so I'm *very* confused.

    Second Thunderbolt 3 device suddenly not working..

    I have the Aorus Gaming 5 with the Alpine Ridge TB3 card. I unplugged my whole system last week to get a few things sorted with my room wiring, and now I've plugged it back in and my 'second' TB3 device isn't recognized. Example: Facing the rear panel ports, the right TB3 port works correctly...

    Intel Core i7-8700K - no AVX support?

    I'm not exactly sure what AVX is, I'm assuming some sort of virtualization thing, but I'm trying to run some new software (Native Instruments Massive X) that requires AVX. I'm getting an error saying my system doesn't support it. Is it a BIOS thing or does my processor actually not support it...

    Gigabyte RX 580... still no fix?

    Whoa. Disabling CSM fixed it. Not only that, but now my boot screens are way higher resolution + the system just seems to be running a lot smoother now.. thank you!!! What is CSM?!

    Gigabyte RX 580... still no fix?

    I'll try the CSM thing. But my system is a Gigabyte Gaming 5, UEFI yes. So, it's not old...

    Gigabyte RX 580... still no fix?

    Does anyone have any other solutions to try? I've read about other people using this card with no issues! I don't want to use the IGPU, it defeats the purpose of getting this card in the first place. I tried NoVPAJpeg.kext, I tried the SMBIOS change, nothing seems to stop it from happening.

    [In progress] SSDT for Thunderbolt 3 Hotplug

    Hoping someone can help me out.. I have the GB z370 Gaming 5 w Alpine Ridge card, and was trying to see if I could get hot plugging working. My setup went from manageable to worse. I use a thunderbolt drive enclosure, and a thunderbolt audio device. The thunderbolt audio device gets switched...

    Gigabyte RX 580... still no fix?

    Is there still no fix for graphics issues with the RX580? Specifically, Photos freezing up the computer with a bunch of GPU dump errors. I've seen lots of threads on it, and I've seen suggestions to try Lilu and WhateverGreen, but nothing has fixed it for me. Super bummed, as I thought the RX580...

    Closed / New thread created Random Freezes / YELLOW screen of death after upgrade to RX 580.

    Damn, I'm getting tons of GPURestarts yet I have my card reporting correctly as a RX580, so I guess it's not the same issue?

    RX580 build, GPURestarts, graphics hanging for 4-5 seconds at a time

    My build has been working great for weeks, and then suddenly this week I had to restart twice because my system was hanging for 4-5 seconds at a time, with only a few seconds in between to move my mouse, get to console, and see what was happening. Turns out it's a whole lot of...

    8700k: low Geekbench multicore benchmark?

    Fixed. Really dumb, but turns out the Aorus Gaming 5 manual is a bit confusing with memory slot configuration. I was accidentally running in single channel! **original post below** I just got my new build going.. 8700k, aorus gaming 5 mb, 32gb ram, rx580. Everything is running well now except...

    [Solved] Aorus Gaming 5 + 8700k + RX580, booting High Sierra = monitor off, fans go quiet

    ** update** leaving this up in case someone has the same issue.. turns out it was the RX580, and the solution is enabling RadeonDeInit. ** original post ** I don't really know what else to try here. I built my system today, and have had trouble getting into my actual installation of High...

    [In progress] SSDT for Thunderbolt 3 Hotplug

    I'm a bit confused following this thread, but can someone just verify with me - hot plugging is not working for z370 systems yet right? I was going to get a i9 7900 system (so, x299) but it was significantly more expensive and overclocking seemed more troublesome.

    How to deal with keyboard difference?

    I'm considering doing a Hackintosh laptop and was wondering how people handle the ctrl, windows, and alt keys when running Mac? Is it easiest to switch the functionality of the keys so that alt becomes command, and windows becomes alt/option?

    Thunderbolt 2/3, USB3, USB-C compatibility?

    How is support for Thunderbolt 2, Thunderbolt 3, USB3, and USB-C now? I had a Hackintosh back in 2012, and at the time, firewire was troublesome, and I remember later on reading about problems with Thunderbolt. I was never sure if USB3 ever got sorted either.
