My RAM stable with F9l. I don't see the unexpected quits anymore.

I don't use liquid coolers. I just have a good ol' fashioned Noctua.
Here it is 100% Noctua, on MacPro with Gigabyte Z590M Gaming X and i9 10900 I use the Aircooler Noctua NH-U12A and 4 NF-F12 fans.
And I'm building the old configuration Z390M Gaming with i9 9900K on PowerMac G5, which will use the same model of Aircooler NH-U12A and 2 Noctua A9x14PWM Fans on the back, 2 Noctua A9 PWM Fans on the front, 1 Noctua A8 on top near PCIe and 2 Noctua A6 fans in the original Power Supply which I will put a CoolerMaster 750w inside.

I use a Noctua NH-D15S. Other than the two fans that attach to the heatsink, I also have a Noctua NF-A12x25 and a Silverstone 160mm for the case.

I stumble onto your F9l BIOS file reading the thread, and, as I never try another BIOS, I revert back to F9l just in case (I was on F9M).
I put back my unmodified Titan Ridge v2. And magic! I just don't understand why, but everything works perfectly... no more NVMe related crash for more than 3 hours now, and my UA Apollo Thunderbolt sound card can be hot-plugged without a problem.
:eek:
Perhaps this Thunderbolt AIC mess is bios related?
I'll let my hackintosh run all night to see if it hold...

Strange, after installing beta 6 of Monterey without any issue, Beta 7 gives me this(started from a cloned drive with Monterey on it). "An error occurred verifying firmware". What would cause this? I am still on F9m but the last beta installed fine. Looks like Beta 8 should be available to the public in a couple days.

Sorry. I have no idea. I have not tried any of the betas.

Looks like it's trying to update the firmware of a real iMacPro1,1. You may need to try the latest OpenCore 0.7.4 beta to see if the spoofed firmware version has been updated.
