Glad to hear it!
Tried to upgrade to big sur but after it downloads and starts installation and r3ser it self it freeze right on the beginning screen shot
Please note that very little if any support will be provided for Big Sur public beta. Anyone that wishes to experiment with Big Sur should try to be self-sufficient. Nevertheless, please ensure:
  • CFG-Lock is disabled (on Vision G, install BIOS F6 where CFG-Lock is disabled by default)
  • Try using CPUID as described here:

I'm joining the team, and I can't thank @CaseySJ enough for his work in providing us with a precise and exemplary installation. Thanks to the contributors of this project!
Glad to hear the build went well!
...
Multi Monitors:
  • My 2 monitors work perfectly via the DisplayPort of the RX 580, but its HDMI outputs don't work on my HDTV, the cable and the display are 1.4 compatible.
  • Same for the internal HDMI port (UHD 630), not functional, but it causes a complete freeze of the machine!
Regarding the HDTV:
  • Check the owner's manual for instructions on connecting a PC. Some TVs have dedicated ports for gaming PCs/consoles.
  • Wide Color and HDR modes may also need to be turned off.
Regarding the internal HDMI port:
  • It will only work when we change Platform ID to 0x3E9B0007 and apply HDMI frame buffer patches.
  • But when we do this, many applications will crash on launch; Safari may not render some websites properly; etc.
  • The on-board HDMI port is not recommended for general use, but only as a stop-gap measure for installation or troubleshooting.
...
Temperature:
  • I use the Shadow Rock 3 as well, and I am very pleasantly surprised by the operating temperature of the 10700K, below 35°C at rest! Never had such a quiet machine :)
  • What do you use to control the temperature and the fans? Is it necessary to install HWsensors or special kexts? My usual softwares recognize very few parameters.
At this time, fans can only be monitored, but not controlled via macOS. But BIOS contains comprehensive Fan Curve support.
I tried to "Suspend activity" from the apple menu, but it was a failure, impossible to reactivate the machine and the fans remain at full speed!
When you say "suspend activity" do you mean "sleep"? When you attempt to put the machine to sleep, the fans remain at full speed? If so, please try removing the Fenvi FV-T919 (always shutdown system and flip power switch to OFF when adding or removing components from the motherboard). Does sleep/wake work properly when the Fenvi is removed?

Thanks CaseySJ!

I have used same settings without any luck and unfortunately I don't have any other TB3 devices:(
at first I thought that my TB3 adapter or TB2 cable has issue, but fortunately I had spare, anyway it's not problem of the cable or adapter they just fine.
What about windows...? it seems that windows at the moment does not solve any problems with hackintosh, right?
On this system it is not necessary to install Windows or the Windows Thunderbolt drivers because macOS will initialize and use on-board Titan Ridge controller without any problem.

What is the specific model name/number of your UAD Apollo? Is it running the latest UAD firmware?

No. Here is what I observe:
1. Select sleep from Apple menu. Display goes to sleep. Computer eventually goes to sleep. Then computer and display almost immediately wake up. After that I waited over 3 minutes for computer and display to go to sleep again but they never did.
2. Select sleep from Apple menu. Turn off mouse. Display goes to sleep. Computer eventually goes to sleep. Both stay asleep until I hit space on the keyboard (mouse is turned off).
Interesting. What is the make/model of your mouse?

Wow changed CPUID and now Big Sur is installing. You are the best

I paid for vision g 179$ and now is back to 199$ where vision d is still off for 279$

I have qnap 872xt with tb3 but that never worked nicely even on the real 2019 top Mac always after sleep it would not reconnect so It was driving me crazy that at the end I sold Mac and went back to my old hackintosh and now I built this new one.

I ended with 10 gbit and qnap can be in other room which will be the case , just thinking having tb3 will be ok but will not use it for qnap. So can’t decide if I should buy vision D and return this one but do not see the value still if I will not be using tb. What else is different and better in vision d and is it worth extra 100$

Par for the course for a Public Beta in it's early stages.

Also, a setup with a Pi is really useful because it can be connected over wifi/ethernet and you can log in with your computer over network. so you can setup the clip and the pi and all cables on a breadboard somewhere and don't touch it while you flash it over SSH on your computer without the risk of touching wires or moving the programmer in your usb-port.
I looked at the GPIO for the Pi 2b and it is the same (obviously)... Not too worried about flashing. Just want to use the easiest/safest device if I have to order something anyways. Thanks for the input.

Certain Thunderbolt versions of QNap arrays do work when Thunderbolt firmware is flashed. Please see this post for a list of some devices that work after firmware is flashed:

With the Vision G it is possible to install GC-Titan Ridge v2.0 into a PCIe slot. We can flash the firmware of the GC-Titan Ridge, but there are some issues:
  • Thunderbolt devices may not work on cold boot, but may require one reboot.
  • Sleep/wake may be hit-or-miss with different devices.
  • Windows may or may not work properly with the flashed card.
There are fewer problems with the on-board Thunderbolt controller on Vision D:
  • USB-C devices need to be connected prior to boot.
  • Windows may or may not work properly with the flash controller.
