HS14 is for the BCM3460NG M2 Key, for Wifi & Bluetooth, in case you use this you will have to unmount the MB cover to plug the antenas (not included with this bundle), also if you use M2_2 port you will lost one SATA port (SATA3_7 more info on the manual), but you'll still have 7 more.

HS02 & HS03 are only type 2 because are going to be used only for the mouse and keyboard. And 9 USB conectors are ready to work in total, trough the HS08/SS08 an ASM 107x device are two.

HS13 is for the LED control, in case you use activate it in USB map, the light is fixed in one colour. So is best for its work to be forgotten by MacOS.

In case you want to use a FENVI T919 PCI Card, you can add, changing HS11 for the right port you plug the Bluetooth cord:

Code:
<key>HS11</key>
<dict>
<key>UsbConnector</key>
<integer>255</integer>
<key>name</key>
<string>HS11</string>
<key>port</key>
<data>
CwAAAA==
</data>
</dict>

Benchmarks:

Not bad, mostly the same in Windows 11:

This is based on the help of many people from the forum, in special thanks to @CaseySJ @bootmacos @miliuco @Edhawk & @etorix

Tech advise:
Alcid=7 is OK, number 1 also works but there are issues with headphones
Last Opencore Version = 0.8.4
It works in MacOS Monterey too

Thank you for the post. I am glad to know ASRock Z690 Extreme, the beautiful board is working fine.

I found that the on-board USB mapping is very similar to that of my Z690 Steel Legend. Seeing the SL's USB map, I guess that the inner pins in USB_3_4 and USB_1_2 are assigned to HS10 and HS12, respectively, and USB_3_7_8 is assigned to HS08/SS08 through the built-in hub (ASM107x).

Yes, they are pretty much the same Motherboard, aprox. same prize too. Depends on the abailability on your country / region.

Very good results on your build w/ the 12900K !!!

Hi! Could I ask you a favour? Could you post you Metal GeekBench5 score?

I just built a "similar" (Z690 motherboard) system and I don't know why my RX580 gets much lower score than on my old Z490 system!

Thanks
