Try using latest version of Clover Configurator or using a plist editor.
Lack of BT function was due to the BT USB cable being plugged into the wrong port on the board. Apparently with the prior settings I was using (which I realized was Jbarnette's, not yours), it didn't matter, and with yours it does.

I still have two non-functional USB ports on the top of the case, and the 3.1 port doesn't work, but none of that matters to me on Mac OS on this machine.

The clover error seems to have resolved itself - at least I don't think anything I did fixed it.

Thanks!

Looks like everything that should be working is working.

Software Update has now started bugging at me to update to Big Sur. Is it worth messing with, or a lot of headaches?

No headaches. Please see post #4108.

About half hour and three reboots...

Update went fine with OC 0.6.9

After that I've done a downgrade to OC 0.6.4 because I've struggled some little issues (before and after 11.4 update), after update to OC 0.6.9

Freeze at boot (randomly)
Freeze at wake up (randomly)
Extremely slow to reboot or shutdown (randomly freeze)

Also during the update to 11.4 during one boot it stuck.
And during the first phase of the update download a very weird behavior, mouse freeze and moving jerky, same for the audio, after disabled the Wi-Fi all gone fine.

With the new OC version I've replaced the HFSPlus.efi driver with OpenHfsPlus.efi but I don't know if the issue is related to it.

Do you have faceted the same issues?

I had the same issue with the 970 EVO 1TB on my z390 Gaming X. I went away when I switched my SSDs. I moved the 970 from the secondary slot (bottom one) to the primary (top one) and the 960 vice versa. It went away after that. No idea it is was a lucky shot but worth a try.
Different mainboard, different SSD, same issue with macOS 11.4. No solution yet.

No. Every version of macOS that I've run on this since NVRAM was fixed has been smooth.

I've never gone backwards and used older versions of either OpenCore or Clover.

I've never used OpenHfsPlus.efi.

Try running your system without the RX 580 for a few days and see if you still experience problems.
