Is there any visible damage on the PCIe slot? A hardware problem could explain the issue, but is hardly fixable unless you can get a replacement from Gigabyte Asus.

So, still having this strange issue that the BIOS CLOCK and SYSTEM CLOCK get's out of sync, most of the time it's the BIOS clock that date and time doesn't follow....
And then when I change it in the BIOS the system clock is 1 hour later then the BIOS one.

I attached my EFI, if someone can have a look.
Yes, still running old version of opencore, didn't made time to try to upgrade it.

BIOS I'm running is F3H

New BIOS update for X299X Designare 10G: F3j
  1. Checksum : 6B66
  2. Major vulnerabilities updates, customers are strongly encouraged to update to this release at the earliest.
    Credits to "Assaf Carlsbad and Itai Liba from SentinelOne"
  3. Introduce capsule BIOS support starting this version.
    Customers will NOT be able to reverse to previous BIOS version due to major vulnerabilities concerns.
mmmm, can't roll back when updated....

@BerndVP Updated yesterday, with MacOS Catlina it works, but no improvement on overclocking stability.
OC 0.7.6
Do you have Big Sur? Have you tested it with the F3i BIOS?

Hi,

Not yet upgraded the BIOS.
I’m still running 0.6.8
Time to update. Are you willing to share you’re EFI without Serials :)

And no, not running Big Sur, nor tried it.

When I have a moment I add my updated EFI folder.


Anyone with Big Sur have tested the latest BIOS versions?

And… Positive overclocking experiences with the Gigabyte X299X?

Personally, I don't need OC for this CPU, Core count was what I needed.
