- Dell xps 9360
- i7 7560u
- Iris Plus 640
I recently spilled some coffee on the left side of my keyboard, made sure to let it dry, disassembled and cleaned it up thoroughly.
Judging by the inside I must have missed every piece of hardware except for the keyboard, which is sticky occasionally now.
At the same time I was playing around with my Clover install, and have noticed that my performance is absolute garbage now. I'm pretty sure that this is Clover related since the temps are pretty much normal since the incident.
Intel Power Gadget does not show anything extraordinary, frequency ranges from 1 to 3,5GHz, temps are normal.
I often get huge freezes and overflows when playing or exporting big Logic X projects.
Can anyone help me figure this out? Since darkvoid's config is not compatible with the XPS 13 9360 i7-7500 I had to adjust the parameters by myself.
i attached all problem report files and my clover folder.

EDIT: I installed Windows and got the same results. Seems like this is hardware related after all. I updated the BIOS and ran all Dell diagnostics and everything came back as okay. Is there anything else that I can do to fix this?
Thanks for the answer! Just checked with some other people. The Geekbench score from OP is based on Geekbench 3. My score is average for i7-7500u laptops with the up to date Geekbench. So it seems like the hardware is okay, just my clover config could be better optimized. I’d appreciate if anyone with the know how could take a look at my clover folder.Since RAM is soldered the only thing you can try is to switch to another SSD. Otherwise you can’t really repair the mainboard, there are some cheap ones on Ebay tho.
Try this clover folder. Should be ready to go, just copy it to your efi. It is an older clover version tho, but for testing it should be enough.Thanks for the answer!

I was referring to OpenCore when I mentioned OC. Sounds like it's a bit cleaner of a solution over Clover and potentially the direction Hackintoshing is headed.The problem is that the OP here, as well as that one post that's somewhere in the middle (where the switchover to HWP happened, as I recall), are the closest things to a guide in these forums. There could be a new "support" thread, but whatever guide thread exists tends to also be the one used for support / updates.
There are an awful lot of subtleties documented here, but in no single place. The OS X version can now be one of 4 possibilities, there are two generations of CPU within the 9360 line, and also two variants of the GPU.
When you say OC folder, what are you referring to? The overclocking process involves experimenting with different values of the relevant EFI setup variables, so you can't just install a folder.
