I’ve been working on my fan speeds, and I learned that my motherboard has some pretty cool utilities for adjusting the fan curves and speeds and such.
I have it set now through my BIOS to where my fans are able to go as slow as 200-300RPM; this works in Windows. However macOS seems to ignore my...
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...
I’m so far out of the game these days, it’s been years since I’ve seriously tinkered with the nitty gritty of my hackintosh outside of just using it daily, so all of my knowledge I’m afraid might be outdated.
I’m going to pick up a Samsung 970 EVO PLUS 1TB m.2 SSD. I’ve read I’ll...
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...
Can someone please help me update to 10.15.1 Public Beta 1? I try to update - it’s downloaded it, at almost 4.5GB - but whenever my Hack reboots it just skips the update and brings me back to the login screen. I’ve disconnected all other internal and external drives, and tried picking “Install...
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...
Hello everyone - I just noticed something odd in my hackintosh. I have an AirPort Express set up to broadcast a hidden signal, but my hack can’t connect to it. Here’s three pics - the AirPort literally laying just above the antenna of my card, as well as my system and WiFi card stats...
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.

EDIT: Turns out I had the displays plugged into the wrong ports on my GPU - apparently order does matter!
Hello all, have a really puzzling issue. Running 10.12.4 on my Hackintosh; it was running well with a DisplayPort monitor on 10.12.3 but the new update is causing headaches. I just got two...
Hello all, I'm completely at a loss here.

Latest Clover, set up the same way as on El Cap, but with NvidiaWeb enabled.
It's got this weird issue - I did a clean install, everything went well. Several reboots...
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...
