Update 49 (the end):
Sadly after many wonderful and adventurous years with this awesome machine I am going to sell it now. :'(
There's exactly one reason for that: I could get my hands on a 2019 Mac Pro (which is a bit less powerful on single core, but gives me the freedom of spending more time...
Never had this problem. My machine is also overclocked. Sorry, no explanation. I outline what I did in conjunction with overclocking in my build description under "Update 39 (Overclocking to 4.5 GHz)". Maybe this helps.
I am not sure, but I think in my case the Thunderbolt 3 audio interface (Universal Audio Apollo 8) interrupts the sleep. I never really investigated this as I always shut down the computer when I am not using it anyways.
Sorry, I missed your comment. :( The only good thing I can say about this GPU is that I NEVER ever hear the fans go up. But I also don't perform all too GPU heavy stuff on my machine. Overall it’s a great card.
I updated as well, see steps below. So far everything seems to be normal. However, I also have the graphic glitches that some others are reporting during boot. I am using a Radeon Pro WX 7100.
checked boot volume with fsck_apfs -n -l -x /dev/rdisk1s1 before updating
corrected some issues with...
I think in that case I am afraid that I will not be able to help you. I once tried to make two GTX950s work in my Hackintosh and had similar issues. After weeks of trying to overcome them, I gave up and switched to a more powerful single GPU setup. See the corresponding thread here...
I'm happy to help, if I can.
So, you have both cards installed at once or did you replace the 580 with the 7100?
Let me ask you this first:
Have you enabled the internal GPU in the BIOS? I know from other cases with AMD cards that there were some cases of black screens when the internal GPU...
Hey iLikeHackintosh. I agree. What I would advice, if at all, is to overclock in small increments, with thoroughly testing of the entire system and close observation of component temperatures under long term heavy load. In my experience, successful overclocking is closely connected to how well...
1. checked boot volume with fsck_apfs -n -l -x /dev/rdisk1s1 before updating
2. updated Clover to 4784 via Clover Configurator
3. updated system to 10.14.2 18C54 via System Preferences > Software Update
All seems to be fine so far. :)
Let me say this first:
I always try to go as clean as possible with my Clover settings. I have no Acpi patches and also no Kernel and Kext Patches in my setup. Because of this I also have only little to no experience with most of the patches out there.
Therefore I think it makes no...
Yes, that's what everybody says. :) However, I would love to understand what's actually going on here. The value in "Cpu" > "Frequency MHz" in Clover seems to be somehow translated in the "About This Mac" dialogue (but not accurately).
Not a big deal, but I thought someone would...
I overclocked my Z170X-UD5 TH, i7-6700K Hackintosh the simple way, via Gigabyte's "CPU Upgrade" option in the BIOS.
The system seems to run smoothly so far and performs notably better (much higher Geekbench result for instance).
Also, the clock of 4.5 GHz is correctly represented in Intel's...
Hey Hahn, sure. My BIOS settings are on my build page. I always keep them up to date. However, I only keep track of the things that I changed after resetting with "Load Optimized Defaults".
- BIOS version: F21
- Smart Fan 5 = Silent (all fans)
- BIOS > Fast Boot = Disabled
- BIOS > Full Screen...
