    Solved > Hackintosh does not use the OC from BIOS

    Just wanted to post, that I was having this problem when I installed Catalina and my OC which was working in Mojave. The old fix of just clicking Plugin type in Clover and Plugin=1 no longer worked. Disabling EIST in BIOS totally solves that problem in Catalina! Thank you! My OC now works...

    [SUCCESS] Old Hack, New Tricks II - Upgrading My GA-Z77X-UP5 TH System to Catalina

    Hmmm, You've inspired me. I may switch to the ImacPro1,1 sys def to see if there's any performance gains in PP or FCP X over the 13,2 def i've been using. My thinking in keeping 13,2 was that I essentially get two GPU's-- one for free. That being the iGpu. Side note, i've been wanting to slam...

    ---I think that's all normal. The 3770k chip doesn't support accelerated HEVC. Try FCP X if you haven't, it uses both gpus pretty much to 99% on most things. Premiere, in my tests, does seem to use the GPUs less. I had a similar problem, but I think it was due to my wireless usb port being...

    [SUCCESS] Old Hack, New Tricks II - Upgrading My GA-Z77X-UP5 TH System to Catalina

    Stay on 13,2. I recently updated my machine (I'll make a longer post later about that) and I found that 13,2 enabled: (1.) natively Hardware Acceleration (intel gpu) -- great for video editing and encoding h264, AND (2) also natively allowed use of quick look/jpeg preview in Finder. Using 14,2...

    [SUCCESS] Old Hack, New Tricks II - Upgrading My GA-Z77X-UP5 TH System to Catalina

    Thank you mickelsn, for your info on this. I have this same board, and wanted to upgrade some components on it. My question is-- Do you think it would be easier to do Mojave and then Catalina or should I try to do a fresh "vanilla" install of Catalina? I've been on a sierra build for awhile--...
