The files in this post https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/gigabyte-x299x-catalina-support.288625/post-2167926 are working just fine on 3 of my machines. Need a little clean up but it runs. When using it reset NVRAM after every reboot while installing. When all set up and running you don't need to do that again. OpenCore runs just fine. These files are for 18 core. So adjust TC file according you CPU.

First of all, thanks for the reply. I saw your previous post and studied it, and I have a question. Actually, two questions.

The first is do you actually use this EFI on an X299X Aorus Master? You don't list an X299X Aorus Master in your list of systems, so I'm just wondering if you've ever used it on the specific motherboard I'm asking about.

The second is that the line: rtcfx_exclude=00-FF seems a bit broad. I guess it might work, but I'm curious if you've ever narrowed that range down?

Hi, Yes sorry my sig changes too often so a bit lazy to adjust it every time. But yes the BIOS profile can be used on X299X Aurus Master with BIOS F3d. And the EFI folder too. Also this: "rtcfx_exclude=00-FF" can be removed as I have RTCfix enabled in OpenCore same config file. The rtcfx_exclude=00-FF was just for testing to see where the part was to reset BIOS. And as without it and the BIOS profile used I did not have one time a BIOS error nor failure.

I have used this with 3 machines same board same CPU and they all work fine. It is important that when you have OSX running and all work is done to reset NVRAM from OpenCore once and then select in OSX system-prefs the OSX boot disk for booting. It will be stored in NVRAM and stay's there next time and so on. Only once and then just use your machine.

Good luck.

i have an 18 core
9980xe
i wasn't going to sale my 9980xe to buy the 10980xe
after i paid 2,000 for it
i know the 10980xe has some new improvements

4 more pci-lanes
doble the ram capacity
faster ram support
higher turbo boost clock
etc

but honestly i didn't want my computer to lose 1,000 in value
just for switching the CPU
so i decided to stay with my cpu

thank you for the files, at least the other member who made the question can use your files
because honestly i'm not going to install mac os for now
maybe later some other time

regards

Do your 3 machines properly sleep and wake up, @Edkroket ?

The files in this post https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/gigabyte-x299x-catalina-support.288625/post-2167926 are working just fine on 3 of my machines. Need a little clean up but it runs. When using it reset NVRAM after every reboot while installing. When all set up and running you don't need to do that again. OpenCore runs just fine. These files are for 18 core. So adjust TC file according you CPU.

These Machines are used for hard working, so sleep is never tested. I don't know as I disable computer sleep always on multi-cores. Sorry!

I guess I can't overclock making the system unstable to log in or it might be one configuration mess everything
running 0.61 open core
Sorry to hear you're having issues overclocking.

Is anyone else overclocking their system? I'm just bought the Designare 10G + 10980XE and definitely hope to overclock if I can.
