Check out the case of the 3770K, I’d like to install a 13700K or 13900K.

I finally desist on RX 6600, just bought an RX 6800, it looks like it related to the new RX 6600 BIOS

Glad to hear it. So there is no problem when restarting the Mac with RX 6800?

Nop, only happens with RX 6600 or RX 6600 XT, now I see a minor problem, that the internal mic isn't working, the rear one is working well and bot audio outputs but internal input isn't

Edit: Just clear NVRAM and mic works fine

Thank you very much @gandem

Good news, after a lot of fight with Highpoint, which I sent to hell, because I said if you want to change the BIOS as you did, you should alert before making the changes, because I would have a choice to update or not.

Well, after they said that there was no way to downgrade, today to my surprise after messing with them, they sent me a BIOS Factory Default version, which is to be done via DOS, which I did and that's it.. matter resolved and the 3740A has returned to live and beautifully enter Hackintosh.
Wow — glad to hear it! It’s really annoying when manufacturers don’t allow BIOS/firmware to be downgraded.

Regarding this post of mine and my problem with front USB-C port just a follow-up:

after upgrading BIOS (v. 2004 or v. 2103, both of them have the same behavior), I've also noticed that not only the front UBS-C port is not working correctly under Mac but under Windows 10 too.

So I've entered in contact with Asus support, and I'll let you know if it's an H/W problem, and, therefore, I will RMA the board or it's a BIOS/firmware/software problem of some type. In the meantime anybody is experiencing my same problem?

which times of boot do u guys have, because with 2 modules of RAM Crucial DDR5 4800Mhz it last like 1.5min and with only 1 it last for 45 sec.

With four also last for like 1.5 or something like that.

I've seen some weird problems using the USB-C Thunderbolt ports on the Z690 Pro Art with the 13900K, just the machine restarts out of nowhere. I'm even doing a 10TB Windows Backup because on Mac, it happened 3x yesterday in a matter of 10 to 20 minutes usage. The USB and USB-c TB ports, I think need major tweaking. I already think about not using any external USB or USB-c drives with the Z690 and the 13900K processor. I found a problem also in the central slot when I put an 8x card and I have a 5700rx in the first slot; it just doesn't work. I've called Asus and no one can answer. There is a suspicion that this is related to BIOS 2103, which is very recent for 13900Kk and may still need a lot of adjustments.. let's see...
No, luckily the back USB-C/TH4 ports are working perfectly for me. But I don't use any particular TH hardware with them, so probably it's easier for me.
