Hi, please forgive my poor English.

This is my first post here. I've been trying to build my Hackintosh for a month. In the case of lack information, I chose some "new" hardware, such as the Gigabyte G590 Vision D & Rocket lake CPU.

I see not many cases about the Z590 Vision D and the 11th gen CPU in the forum. I am not sure if my build case is helpful (or someone can help me look at the problem), just write it down first, with EFI and BIOS Settings attached.

My system is as follows:

Mainboard: Gigabyte Z590 Vision D (provides 1 "Gigabyte VisionLINK" port, and Maple Ridge)
CPU: Intel i9 11900K
  • GPU: AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT
  • Display: LG Ultrafine 5K (27MD5KA, old model)
  • Discrete Thunderbolt Card: Gigabyte Titan Ridge REV 1.0 (Flashed)
  • Discrete Wireless Card: Fenvi T919
  • System: Windows 11 + macOS Monterey (Opencore)
  • NVME SSD:
    • macOS on Samsung 970 EVO / 1T
    • Windows 11 on Samsung MZVLW1T0HMLH-000H1 / 1T (Oem)

I tried to solve part of the post-installation problem, and got some interesting gains:
  1. The LG 5K display can work under both Windows 11 and macOS.
    • Windows 11: 4K resampling resolution (4096x2304),
    • macOS: show full 5K resolution (5120x2880) in the system report.
    • View attachment 527322
  2. The built-in speaker, camera, USB Hub, and brightness adjustment functions of LG 5K display can work normally in Windows and macOS.

The connection of my LG 5K monitor is as follows:
  • 6800XT dual DP out => Titan Ridge dual mini DP in
  • Titan Ridge DP out - [short DP 1.4 cord] --> Mainboard DP in
  • Mainboard "VisionLINK" port out - [Thunderbolt 3 cord] --> LG Ultrafine 5K

Problems that still exist:
  • P1. After macOS sleeps and wakes up, the LG 5K built-in camera, audio, USB, and brightness all lose their functions.
  • P2. A week ago it was normal for Windows to wake up, but now there is a problem that it cannot be woken up.
  • P3. With a USB Cherry RGB keyboard plugged in, macOS will wake up immediately when sleeps, unplug the keyboard makes it normal.
  • P4. The Opencore Picker shows no Windows items, but there is an EFI/ESP partition in the Windows NVME, and I can boot in to it via the BIOS booting menu.
  • P5. The iGPU and the Maple Ridge are not supported yet, as known.

I have learned a lot in this forum, thank you all. Hope you are interested!
Hello @donwang,

Welcome to the forum and thanks for sharing your experience with Z590 Vision D. You’ve confirmed that a Titan Ridge add-in-card can be used.

For new buyers it might be better for them to buy Z590 Vision G instead and install a Titan Ridge Thunderbolt card.

I see that you have connected a DP cable from GC-Titan Ridge to motherboard DP-In, and then connected your LG UltraFine to motherboard Thunderbolt port. But you can connect your LG UltraFine directly to Thunderbolt port on GC-Titan Ridge. Have you already tried that?

I sure hope @Inqnuam didn't click on that order button yet. ;)

I knew going in Hot Plug wasn't working but for an ITX board

Curious about your case and CPU temperatures.

Hi CaseySJ, thank you for your reply!

Yes, I tried it. And I just confirmed it several times.

If I plug TB3 cord directly in Titan Ridge 1.0 (tb1 or tb2), and remove the DP to DP cord, under my current BIOS settings, the LG Ultrafine 5K does not respond after the boot, no output, no backlight.

I remember that this happened after I flashed The Titan Ridge 1.0. Attached the firmware I use.

Hi Leesureone, glad that you are interested in this.

My PC case is the Fractal Design Define R6, top cover opened, with a 360 water cooler installed in front blows in, and three 12cm fans blows outward on the top and the rear.

Here are some test screenshots, maybe you want to know.

Hi there, was also trying to upgrade to windows 11, and following CaseySJ's guide, I got it done!
and also with some google-ing, I installed it without upgrading to newer BIOS by bypassing the TPM.
I used the alternative method down below by getting in the regedit and adding values.
hope it helps

Keep in mind that those RegEdit workarounds may not work in a future Windows 11 update.

Over the top. Par for the course! :)

$799 for the Crosshair VIII Extreme (X570). Available on Aug 30. Haven't seen the price for X570 ProArt yet.

P.S. I've been thinking of replacing my ASRock X570 Taichi with one of these new Asus boards. Haven't decided yet, but if I do, I'll sell the Taichi and use the same case, cooler, memory, power supply, and NVMe SSDs.
The new Asus ProArt X570-CREATOR will retail for US$429.99 starting August 30 September 6. This is extremely tempting...that's all I'll say for now. ;)

  • Two Thunderbolt 4 ports and one DP-In port
  • WiFi 6E / BT 5.2
  • 10GbE and 2.5GbE
  • 3 M.2 slots (PCIe 4.0 on all)
  • HDMI port with 4K60 support
  • One internal USB-C Type E header
  • Three internal USB 2.0 headers
  • Does not have SPDIF/Optical output
The over-the-top Crosshair VIII Extreme (US$799) offers these extras:
  • Two Thunderbolt 4 ports and two DP-In ports
  • WiFi 6E / BT 5.2
  • 10GbE and 2.5GbE
  • 5 M.2 slots (PCIe 4.0 on all) -- 3 slots on motherboard, 2 slots on DIMM.2 riser card
  • HDMI port with 4K60 support
  • Two internal USB-C Type E headers (never seen that before; one of the ports offers PD3.0 60W charging)
  • Two internal USB 2.0 headers
  • Has SPDIF/Optical output
  • DIMM.2 slot
