Success! Followed the guide to the letter. Only issue that I encountered was that bluetooth on the Fenvi did not initially work. I moved the cable to a different on-board USB slot and it worked.

System boots from the selection of Catalina to the login prompt in about 12 seconds. I haven’t found anything that doesn’t work yet.

Thank you for such a great guide!

Specs:
  • Be Quiet! Pure Base 500DX case
  • Gigabyte Z490 Vision D
  • Intel i9 10900KF
  • Be Quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4
  • 64GB G.SKILL Ripjaws - DDR4 3200
  • Fenvi FV-T919
  • Sapphire Nitro+ RX 5700 XT
  • 2 x Sabrent Rocket NVMe 4.0 m.2
  • LaCie 4TB USB-C drive for backups
Note:
I care more about a cool and quiet system than I do about all the bling, so on arrival of the Radeon, I performed the following:
  • Repasted with Thermal Grizzly Hydronaut
  • Deshrouded and added 2x Noctua A12x25 fans
  • Added an upHere GPU brace to prevent sagging
The GPU sits at 35° at idle and under load the highest I can get it to is 71°. Nice thing is that it is very quiet.

That is a fantastic mod.... I'd do the same thing If my card wasn't under warranty... Big slow fans are always better than small fast ones in my books :)

Good job! The Dark Rock Pro 4 appears to be a tight fit. Some questions:
  • Is there enough of a gap or clearance between the fan and the G.Skill Ripjaws DIMMs?
  • Is there enough of a gap or clearance between the heat sink and the Sapphire Nitro+ RX 5700 XT?
  • Is the GPU in Slot 1?

it seen for Z170-UD5-TH a strange case, discover under linux. for THB3, a component that the firmware are not update and need too be update for xhpc_xpc. The issue is that this firmware could be updated if the versson is update by firmware update.

@xtreem.p,

Which version of BIOS do you have on the Z170X UD5? Is it the latest version?

The Dark Rock Pro is a tight fit but I did not have to change anything to get it in.

  • Is there enough of a gap or clearance between the fan and the G.Skill Ripjaws DIMMs?
There is about a half inch between the fan and the ram.
  • Is there enough of a gap or clearance between the heat sink and the Sapphire Nitro+ RX 5700 XT?
The gap is small but it does not touch the card. I was able to get a butter knife (I know, not the best tool) between the heat sink and the card to release it.
  • Is the GPU in Slot 1?
Yes, the GPU is in slot 1

Question about backup, can you answer please
When I am making backup of my main drive, first time in carbon copy cloner what I have to choose? Data backup? Or bootable backup?
And script by default is set like N, not test (version 2)
When I am making backup second time I got errors, all of them related to Safari cashes files. Is it ok?

You're right -- in version 2 of EFIClone, TEST_SWITCH is disabled by default (set to "N"). Although the script has been tested, it's a good idea to set this to "Y" in order to perform a test run. The DESTINATION disk should be the bootable backup disk. If you have any questions about this, please post a screenshot of Carbon Copy Cloner so I can better understand the issue.

@byteminer, is this intentional?
