I saw your 192KHz comments but I have a Vision D with i9-10850K and an Apollo Twin. I'm getting pops and clicks at 96KHz with a 64 buffer, a 128 buffer and 256 buffer, etc.
I never had this with my i7-7700K hackintosh. What am I missing?
In the UAD groups they said I should turn a few things off in the bios (Windows users) but those weren't in any of the guides here and froze me when geek bench testing.
It was also suggested to me to overclock to prevent throttling.

My UAD is up to date. My Catalina is 10.15.6. BIOS F5

The main reason I built this system was to run more at 96KHz at a low low buffer.
Did you ever manage to get this figured out? I have been having the same issues ay 96KHz.

I have the same GPU, but still haven’t opened the box! Anyway, it’s okay to install in slot 2 if absolutely necessary.


Some older versions of BIOS might not work with the RX 6800 XT. Start with the latest BIOS (disable Resizeable BAR) and iterate backwards from there if problems occur.


Yes mostly the same. Disable Resizeable BAR. But search this forum.


They are all supported.

Search this forum. Use keyword 10GbE and/or Aquantia. An Aquantia kernel patch may be needed. The patch is already in the Z490 Vision D EFI folder in this thread. It can be copied to your Z590 config.plist.
I tried to change BIOS settings today. A few settings are not matching with the Z490 board.

Then I came across something strange.
Thunderbolt current security level: Unknown status.

As always thanks for the great help.

And what is the difference Related to thunderbolt performance between the two options?because I’m planning to go the vision’s g route plus Titan ridge card just because it seems easier….

@sardino,

There is no performance difference between onboard TB3 and a PCIe TB3 add-in card when comparing TB3 generations like for like. EG: Built-in Titan Ridge will perform the same as add on Titan Ridge.

Cheers

I think a viable option is Gigabyte Z590 Vision D with Comet Lake CPU. There is already a pre-built OpenCore EFI folder for this in the HackinDROM App. @CODYQX4 and @dehjomz are both using this board.

However, the on-board Thunderbolt 4 (Maple Ridge) controller is giving us some problems with hot-plug. If you connect and power up Thunderbolt devices before booting macOS, then you should be okay. There may be a workaround for hot-plug -- namely:
  • Hot plug a device while macOS is running
  • Put the system to sleep
  • Wake up the system
  • Now the device should be connected
Thanks for the reply. Adding TB3 via a PCI card is not an issue, if the hot plug problem was never to be solved. Apart from this, has the Z590 proven as stable (when used with Comet Lake) in a hack as the Z490 was considered?
@tango76,

I also struggled to get hold of a Gigabyte Z490 Vision D Motherboard relatively recently.

Eventually I went with Gigabyte Z490 Vision G ... which is fully supported by the guide in post #1.
With a bit of searching you may find somewhere that has them still in stock.

It’s a great motherboard, and, if you need TB3, you can go the add in PCIe card route which is far easer to flash than the on board TB3.

Cheers

Thanks! I'll look into the Vision G.

Thanks. It looks like they will only deliver to Australia though? I am in the US.

Both Newegg and Amazon list the Z490 Vision G as in stock (just checked).

Hi, I have just updated to OpenCore 0.7.2 on both my Catalina NVMe and my Big Sur SSD but my Catalina NVMe is no longer visible on the OC Boot Screen on boot up, just the Big Sur SSD. I have performed an NVRAM reset etc. The Catalina Disk is visible as a drive when I boot Big Sur.

Any ideas what may be causing this?

Also, ever since I built my Z490 Vision D System last year, I get a very regular hang on the Gigabyte Splash Screen and I have to Reset/Power Off and Reboot several times before it successfully completes boot and displays the OC Boot menu. I notice that the LED Display on the Motherboard displays 98 when it hangs on the Splash Screen and 64 when it boots successfully. I have never got to the bottom of this problem and would dearly like to do so.

Again, any ideas what might be causing this long term issue?

Thanks

Please check if APFS Min Date & Min Version are set to 0 or -1 in APFS section of config.plist. This can be done with OpenCore Configurator. Both Min Date and Min Version should be -1.

Is there a guide or anything for Z490 Vision G + Thunderbolt add-in-card?

I've been looking/asking for awhile but haven't found one. Today I decided to just install the add-in-card and see what happens and it doesn't work, which doesn't surprise me. I plugged in an external drive, tested on a real Mac to be sure, with my Hackintosh powered off (as in I did not hotplug) but it doesn't appear. My Z490 Vision G is setup using this thread and I had some hope it would just work but I was not really expecting it to.

I did find a generic Thunderbolt 3 guide on another Hackintosh site that mentions the Titan Ridge 2.0 add-in-card but I wasn't sure if it was a good guide for my motherboard specifically.
