The NH-D15 is not compatible with that motherboard... Look at the NH-D15S. I am looking at a similar build right now. You maybe able to add another Noctua fan onto the NH-D15S to get similar, if not better performance than the D15.

Oh, I just saw the above post.. sorry for the duplicate answer. but the added FAN should give you the added cooling performance that matches if not exceeds the standard D15. (From what I have read)

I did exactly that and bought a second (well actually I bought 2, as I wanted Chromax.black fans) NF-A15. Works a treat.

thanks for replying to this. I was second guessing if adding a second fan would cause space issues. Glad to know it is a safe go! just figuring out a build right now.

Poll: Does *ANYONE* following this thread with a Z390 / Z490 system and with an RX5700XT have a completely stable system? No unexpected restarts under load/benchmarks etc? It seems there are not a lot of completely working 5700XT based systems, if any...

Thanks!

One of the reasons that I ordered Vision g is that it comes without WiFi because I do not want to have Broadcom with 4 antennas plus wifi6 antennas on the computer sitting next to me. Am I crazy and tripping?
I don't think you're crazy. We're bombarded with electromagnetic radiation emanating from nearby sources. Although they tell us it's non-ionizing radiation that does not harm our cells, I also tend to avoid unnecessary excess. Often it's better to error on the side of caution. Nevertheless, if we don't attach an antenna to the on-board WiFi module, it won't radiate. We can also physically remove the on-board WiFi module, but it's not necessary. Moreover, macOS does not turn on the Intel WiFi module (unless we use the beta AppleIntelWiFi driver), so we don't really have to worry about it.
...
I do not really need WiFi, only by [Bluetooth] for my apple keyboard and Magic Trackpad, will that work with the intel one without Broadcom ? Will that side thing (forgot the name) will not work putting my iPad Pro next to it?
The AppleIntelBluetooth driver (also in Beta) works quite well, but does not support Handoff. So that side thing known as Sidecar will not work.
I have fanvi 1200ac. I am just thinking now returning vision g specially that both are now even cheaper 20$ And maybe ordering D but. It sure if 100$ extra is worsted and I just do not want to have double WiFi to fry my head next to it
Both Vision G and Vision D are solid boards. If Thunderbolt is important, then Vision D may be the better choice because flashed on-board controllers work better (often significantly better) than flashed add-in cards.

On my Vision D, both Windows and Linux use the on-board Intel WiFi 6 module. That is a state-of-the-art AX201 module with WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1. It delivers much faster speeds than the Broadcom, which I use only in macOS.

Successfully deployed my first Hackintosh thanks to this build!

Gigabyte Z490 Vision G
Intel i5 10400
Gigabyte Radeon RX580 8Gb
Samsung 970 EVO Plus 1Tb M.2
32Gb Ram (Corsair Vengeance 2x 16GB RAM DDR4, 3200MHz)

Had trouble with my initial Clover install then stumbled on this (very similar) build so figured I'd try following the steps.
BOOM!!! I stuck to the steps verbatim and it installed and booted first time and took less than an hour! Brilliant write-up, step-by-step instructions and attached file sets! Thank you CaseySJ!

The ONLY 2 small changes to the step-by-step instructions I'd suggest are to do with the "Vision G" - specific part.

(1) Suggest a spoiler link for the "Vision G" peeps before end of Step 4 (ie: during OpenCore Configurator and before Copy EFI folder to EFI partition).

(2) The name of the file in the G Package is “SSDT-UIAC-VISION-G-V2.aml” so I have used this file name in place for both the below steps:
  • In the OpenCore ACPI folder, replace SSDT-UIAC-VISION-D-V2.aml with SSDT-UIAC-VISION-G-V1.aml located in the attached Vision G Package.zip
  • Then open config.plist in OpenCore Configurator and change the rename SSDT-UIAC-VISION-D-V2.aml to SSDT-UIAC-VISION-G-V1.aml in the ACPI section.
Unfortunately I'm stuck with my wired USB kbd/mouse while my Magic Mouse & KBD await a working Bluetooth/Wireless solution - awaiting components. Wired Internet for now - works great!

G.
Thank you for the edits; both changes have been made.

Item 2 in my signature is a Z390 Designare with PowerColor Red Dragon RX 5700 XT. The system is totally solid even when running multiple back-to-back benchmarks. It's running Catalina 10.15.6 with Clover 5120, but OC 0.6.0 produces the same stable outcome.

Thank you for indulging me here; I find the quality of the info in your threads to be considerably higher than in other areas of this site :)

1. I haven't reported this to Gigabyte. Just through their web support is best?
2. I tried the DIMMs one at a time in all of the slots. Nothing!
3. I moved the m.2 nvme into the middle slot before I did anything.

I have exactly the same issue with Corsair Vengeance 2 x 16GB 3200MHz DIMMs. Motherboard version 1.1, only SSD installed (no Wifi/BT yet), multiple tries running up to POST code 44 and finally error display from BIOS. Removing X.M.P. Profile 1 solves the issue. Will order alternative memory to eliminate the memory itself....

Exact same RAM and situation here. Please keep me posted and thank you!

Alas I know my reply does not help to solve the stability issues you're seeing. It just suggests that macOS can be completely stable with an RX 5700 XT. It may be advisable to pursue the dreaded Process of Elimination or to even jump the gun and install fresh copy of Catalina on a spare SSD to see if the system is stable under load. If a clean system is stable under load, then it certainly suggests that a not-clean system may be responsible. Certain applications or drivers might be causing problems.
