I and a lot of people really appreciate you taking your time and writing a guide, meanwhile I was wondering if you can just give me a few points maybe while we wait?

npci=0x2000 to the rescue.

LOL - I wouldn't do that. Why ?
Because none of them worked at any moment correctly while configured by LTT.
No matter the Gigabyte or the ASUS motherboard.

Good Morning. I am riding a hackintosh with the Gigabyte Aorus extreme 3647.

Now I'm setting everything up and it was to see if you could help me at any given time.

I have not seen how to send you a private, so I have written here.

Thank you.

@Rocnroll Luck is for people who don't know what they actually do.
I have 3x C621 running as a Hackintosh without any Issues.

Asus ROG Dominus Extreme
EVGA SR-3 Dark
Gigabyte C621 Aorus Xtreme

@Junologue Still in work... I have a lot of stuff to do even without hackintoshing.
Will be posted as soon as its done...
Just for curiosity, which one you like more and why?

@tecnicasopr Depends entirely on the intended use. Overclocking then I would say the Dominus Extreme. But the board has some pitfalls, for example no USB header works although it knows the chipset and you can do what you want, it won't work. That means all USB ports work but no internal header. You can only use 3 slots simultaneously. Instead the Aquantia chipset runs out of the box. Another disadvantage of the Dominus is the sensitivity to contact pressure. It can take a few tries to get it right and all RAM slots are recognized. This is definitely a dominus but also a SR3 problem. Both are very sensitive in this respect. The SR3 is nice because it is in the E-ATX form factor. Disadvantage is that the 10G chipset for macOS can not be hard-coded and does not run out of the box. Only 6 ram modules.The only nice thing is that it is equipped with a waterblock and you can easily find a case. The best board and also the one that causes the least problems is the Gigabyte C621 Aorus Xtreme. Unfortunately it has no 10gbit LAN chipset onboard but it works almost without problems. A little bit difficult is thunderbolt because the firmware of the mainboard is still incomplete. But with a custom Titan Ridge firmware the whole thing works fine. It is difficult to find a case for it because it has no standard size and differs significantly from ssi-eeb. I have never seen such a big board apart from the MacPro 2019 Logic Board... Just sick. But these are the only negative things about this board. But you can solve them, it also has there enough pcie slots available. But I would recommend to use a 32xx Xeon and get the best out of it, even if this series can't be overclocked and the CPUs are much more expensive than a 3175X.. And also tech lower scores... . But you have 64 CPU lanes and the best board in relation to the 3646 socket. And yes I know that you can also buy a cheaper 3647 server board, but they are all crap for hackintosh usage.

Thanks for mentioning all the details. Your explanation is excellent.

Hackintosh in Gigabyte C621 Aorus Xtreme is OK, perfect..


Good morning.

I have managed to do the hackintosh on this board and everything works fine.

I have the Thunderbolt Titan and comments on firmware, could you tell me where I can get it.

I have a problem with the NVMe, I put a GC-4XM2G4 to put 4 NMVe disks but it only detects one, I cannot find the BIFURCATION in the Bios, is it possible to solve this or there is nothing to do.

It seems to me that the Bios is very very simple, it lacks things, like halfway.

Thank you very much.
