Good morning all and of course @CaseySJ
I recently bought an external SSD (WD) as I have a lot of huge file transfers to do, and, honestly, compared to external HD, it make an impressive gain of speed (x10 reaching almost 1Gb/sec).
I am not expert and Google is a nightmare when looking at further improvement.

What would be the best option to go even faster with external portable HD on this machine?
Thunderbolt? How fast? Which model?
I basically would need a 2To solution. If speed improvement is great, price would not be the 1st constraint.
Thanks again for all your invaluable advice ;-)
OWC and Sabrent, among others, have TB3 enclosures for NVMe SSDs. Here’s a link:
I believe @Stork has the OWC Envoy…

We should expect around 1500MB/s in real world performance.

Please do the following and I'll provide the next step:
  • Are you using Fenvi FV-T919?
  • What are the makes/models of your Bluetooth keyboard and mouse?
  • Post screenshot of the following:
    • OpenCore Configurator --> ACPI section
    • OpenCore Configurator --> Kernel section
    • (Widen the window if necessary so all columns are visible)

@CaseySJ Yes, I'm usinga Fenvi-T919. It was working fine until last couple days where I can't wake the Hack using BT keyboard or mouse. And, if I wake it up manually, the mouse and keyboard aren't registering. Both KB and mouse (Magic Mouse) are Apple branded BT devices. Screen shots are below. Really appreciate your help with this...

EDIT: if I connect a USB KB and mouse, I can log in obviously. But it takes a little time before BT wakes up in the prefpane, and, once that happens, then the BT devices all work. So, definitely a wake from sleep problem.

@CaseySJ,
Hi, I haven't been using my Hackintosh for a week, and now it starts to shutting down every time I try to log in? Before that, my Hackintosh was completely fine. Can you help, please!

Hi @CaseySJ, With your latest EFI my PC sleeps and wakes, but the RGB Lighting on the 4 RAM sticks still stay lit when in sleep mode. I normally turn the PC off at night, but leave it to sleep during the day when I'm around so I don't have to keep turning on/off. Also, I noticed that on the Hackintosh the RX 6800 XT lighting flashes a lot when I have it set to static in Win 11 following the RGB colours of the MB. I have the board set to static Blue but Card flashes between white/blue and purple when I use the PC for a long time.

RGB lights on RAM will always remain powered on during sleep. Always.

Also, I noticed that on the Hackintosh the RX 6800 XT lighting flashes a lot when I have it set to static in Win 11 following the RGB colours of the MB. I have the board set to static Blue but Card flashes between white/blue and purple when I use the PC for a long time.
If this happens in Windows, then you are within your rights to report it to Gigabyte. Have you looked for similar reports from others on the web?

@CaseySJ,

We can always try these suggestions first:
  • Perform NVRAM Reset.
  • If the problem still occurs, then try a CMOS Reset. This will require you to configure BIOS parameters again, starting with Load Optimized Defaults.
  • If the problem still occurs, try booting from your bootable backup disk.
  • If you don't have a bootable backup (ouch, ouch), then try booting into Recovery and reinstall macOS. Don't erase or format any drives! Just let Recovery reinstall macOS. It will do that in a non-destructive manner.

@CaseySJ Any thoughts on my settings shared in post 9112?

Alas, sleep/wake issues with Apple Magic Mouse and Keyboard are a known issue. I’m not aware of any specific solution, which is not to say there isn’t one. Have you tried searching this site and others?

@CaseySJ I have not searched. Nor did I know Apple's devices were an issue. I will research. But can you tell me if my Hackindrom resulting settings are correct from those screenshots I shared? I'd like to first get that set the way it should be and then I can start looking at fixing the keyboard and mouse issue. Is it as simple as getting a Logitech BT keyboard and mouse as a fix possibly?
