Anybody here has some experience with big Noctua air coolers and overclocked 18 core behemoths?? Thanks.
I have 7940X 14 core with D15. I don't overclock, and the temps are safe well below 75C at 100% CPU usage.

So, I just tried 5096, and so far it seems fine. However, I'm on the beta of 10.15.1.....but so far, no issues....
Yeah right, i'will try Clover 5096 this evening to upgrade to beta 10.15.1 ;-)

Hi! I've had a new crash today (Yes! Another one..), and I want to share it with you to see if someone is having the same issue.

Maybe is a coincidence, but I have the "Automatic" change to dark mode, and I was working with Music app (on Clear mode) and the system crashed. After the crash, i reset the computer (force reset) and after start it, it was in dark mode.

I guess (not 100% sure) it happened the same yesterday at more or less the same time. Is someone having the same issue?

Hello :)
I would not describe that as issue - it's a new thing which came with Catalina,
few days ago my friend told me how he would like to have this option, which is
nothing great for me (because I use dark mode 24/24h)

but... if you have a system crash every time it change (after sun is gone)
yes, then it's some kind of issue.... I'm not on Catalina yet,
but I think you should be able to turn it off in options :)

Yes, I just change it to clear mode. But, tomorrow, if I remember, I would like to test it again to be sure that is the problem. ;)

Did a fresh install of Catalina. Use the old Mojave EFI, just update Lilu and WEG to the latest version. Everything works fine. Sleep also works fine.
Another tweak ----- Do a little bit of overclocking with my water-cooled Radeon VII. Get a score of 5700 in Luxmark.
And Davinci Resolve also have better performance.
Little question ... is it a real score? o_O
It is not a little OC - it's SpaceX overclocking...:D,
or simply I have to change my GPU on Radeon VII :p
I couldn't imagine so high score with R-VII, if someone else have a similar scores
definitely I have to change my Vega64 which have half of you score,
it is sooo incredible difference :crazy::)

This is a real score. No joke. :lol:
Maybe I misleading the meaning of "a little bit OC".
Here is what I did.
With injection of a customized PowerPlayTable, I increase the Max Core Clock to 2200MHz, the HBM Clock to 1100MHz, and the Core Voltage to 1250mV.
Even if I only over clock the HBM Clock to 1100MHz, I can get 5400 score in Luxmark.
Coz I have it water cooled, so I think it is safe to push it more.
I followed another guy's guidance on Macrumors forum. Anyway, this is real.
If anyone need further guidance plz inform me, as I do not know if it is allowed to post link from other forum here.

Ok.

I saw that when I builded OcQuirks.

This new interesting feature was linked here :

https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/hanging-at.285205/post-2017940

"OcQuirks is a drop in replacement EFI driver for Clover that replaces AptioMemoryFix and all OsxAptioFix variants. It is built against the OpenCore source tree, and supports OpenCore's quirks model"

And and I tried it with no issue with Clover 5096 :
