I haven't noticed an increase in temperature on my five Hackintoshes running macOS 11.3 public beta with OC 0.6.6. Perhaps the fans in your system are not spinning as fast with the newer VirtualSMC? Perhaps try OC 0.6.6 with VirtualSMC (and its two associated kexts) copied from the OC 0.6.5 folder?Hi @CaseySJ, I just tried your Opencore 0.6.6 folder and it works!
But I noticed a +10 degree C temp increase (at idle) using 0.6.6 vs 0.6.5 (and windows). In both Windows, and MacOS 11.2.1 on OC 0.6.5, my system is a cool 33 degrees C at idle. However, when I load macOS with your 0.6.6 folder, idle temps are much warmer at 43 degrees C. No changes in BIOS settings or voltage/frequency settings. I ensured to close all apps, and end any services sucking CPU power, and waited until the system was idle (using Intel Power Gadget).
I haven't done a ton of testing yet to see if it's related to a new kext, .efi. or .aml. file, but perhaps it is something that you may want to take a look at. Thanks!
