But have you tried what I mentioned???
No. I haven´t the boards anymore, they now live as W10P-maschines ;-)
The only CLX board I have at the moment is located at the german coder, I think I donate it to him.

Not very specific on their website about what's changed, but who knows.. Perhaps they just disable MSR lock register like GB does
Yes, we don´t know, but I´m very curious about it.

Shame you don't have it anymore, you could have tried to unlock MSR with UEFIPatch.

Many thanks! This is my first Hackintosh. I've read thousands of messages and tried hundreds of ways to install CATALINA OSX on my Gigabyte X299 Aorus Game 3 but all of them failed. I was about to let it down when finally you saved me with your EFI!

Everything is not yet perfect but at least I can boot on the SSD and get in the Catalina desktop.

Now if I want to get better video performance I have to sell my GTX1080 and to look something similar on ATI side. If I understood correctly Vega64 looks the best value for money and obo compatible.

Thanks again @dolgarrenan

I had hope after following this tutorial because the system info displays my NVIDIA GTX 1080 with 8 GB !
Unfortunately a lot of display lags remains...

Do yo know if I can keep the hope to make it work properly or should I sell it and Buy Vega 64 ?

your Nvidia card is not supported on Mojave or Catalina

Hi guys! I've been a bit ill this week and have not been in front of my computer.

Certainly trying to run a GTX1080 on Catalina or Mojave is a mission, but a guaranteed failure one... Apple has NVIDIA on their black list and doesn't seem to be changing their mind, shame on them and a disaster for the community, but that's how it is.

I wouldn't go for a Vega64, they were very noisy, temperatures where a mess and overall performance wasn't that great, only good bit about them was their HBM2 memory modules (hence the hefty price for what they actually are), I would better go with a newer boy in the block aka 5000 series.

What is it that you need your GFX for?

Thanks a lot for taking time to answer

Thanks for the advice, I agree I was targeted the RX5700 for 450€ when I found a used Vega 64 for 200€ so I decided to save 250€ ;)

I will use it mainly for Photoshop and Premiere editing

I received the Vega 64 today and every lags gone :)
I benchmark this Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 3 with i9-7920x and the Vega 64.
The results are not so bad :)

Thanks everybody for your precious help
