hey guys,
i have a problem, i have supermicro x10dax with 2x 2696 v3 xeon and nvidia 1080ti all work but my GB 4.1.3 get every time , with and without patch, 27000 max 28000.
Is a problem a e5 2696 v3 Haswell? is better Broadwell?
Is very strange. Anyone with experience in this case?
i am in 10.12.6 sierra.
I'm getting 36500 in Gb 4.1 on osx HS (prob because of a memory issue)another user on here gets 41000 ,
the benchmarks i saw on 2696v4 22 core are around 45000.

Crap, I am so sorry guys.

So, I, uh, completely forgot that I had patched the BIOS image from Supermicro for my motherboard and flashed my own modified BIOS to my X10DAi mobo. It was largely cosmetic (replaced the Supermicro logo with the Apple boot image, restored some stuff that had been removed from the EFI shell, etc.)....but more importantly, I patched the bios so that it leaves MSR 0xE2 unlocked. Motherboards often lock this register, and that prevents macOS from booting. So my guide works as long as your motherboard has MSR 0xE2 unlocked. If it is locked, you must make sure to check the 'KernelPm' box in the Kernel and Kexts section of Clover Configurator.

It just totally slipped my mind. There wasn't exactly some visual indication to remind me about the unlocked MSR registor. I just forgot. Whoops :(. I am very sorry to anyone who finds that this omission caused them headache and wasted their time. It was an honest oversight.

Sorry!
No hard feelings! I have the same motherboard would love if you could share your bios & configuration just remove your serials from the config file or screentshots of clover config.

Thanks!

Great Guide!! I am just wondering how a system like this runs? I am a professional FCPX video editor and am in need of an extreme pc for 6k to 8k Raw video footage. I just want to know before spending 10 000$ or more.

My build- Dual Xeon E5-2690V4
Asus Z10PE-D16-WS
Dual VEGA 64 Frontier addition GPU's
128GB DDR4 ECC RAM
Corsair 1500i
1TB Samsung 960 Pro M.2 SSD
6 Seagate 12TB Ironwolf Drives
4 Crucial 1TB SATA SSD'

I am mainly in need of extreme reliability and No-compromised performance.

So if you can just tell me how well does it run and if my system has a chance to work with Mac OS X High Sierra, that would be excellent! Thanks again, love your stuff : )

hello if you build this PC, I would like to know how Final Cut Pro X get benefits to that all max out components !!
Seriously curious.

I already build for a client same Mobo with 64GB RAM + 2 E5-2630 v4 + 2 GTX 1080Ti
Mainly for Davinci Resolve 14. It's stable and perform as fast as it can (CPU/GPU not that well balanced)

Just for info I made some tests with X99 and E5 V4 (ES) with 22 cores on HighSierra
poor cinebench result and unstable (due to ES I suppose)
22 cores.png
but Resolve use all cores

@metacollin, are you running High Sierra yet? Do you have any updates to this guide? You're my only hope, Obi-Wan Kenobi.

I gave up about 1.5 years ago because I was getting a blinking cursor on boot, couldn't even install OS X. Plus I got busy with other things.

Recently I got serious again, discovered the blinking cursor was from a dead motherboard CR2032 battery. Then I had VERY unreliable boots (only 1 in 3 times could I select a boot device) because of corrupt network boot EEPROMs, which resolved with simply disabling network booting. (Re-flashing the EEPROMs seems like a real PITA using Intel's BOOTUTIL.)

Anyhoo, I was going to follow this guide but I realized things may have changed in the last 1.5 yrs. So if there's an updated guide, or at least a few updated components, please let the rest of us know!
