Solution here, go to your motherboard.

after reading all that I saw that you already have one ready for mine, I just need to add it in config.plist

This board has only 1 port, and it is HDMI v1.4.

Index 1, BusID 0x00, Type HDMI (type does not matter here)
Index 2, BusID 0x00, Type HDMI (type does not matter here)
Index 3, BusID 0x04, Type HDMI <-- this is the active port

What should I do now after knowing that my id is 3E98?

Should I enter the HDMI correction guide code?
I don't know. I never had to do that.

Doing the connector patches is worth a try.
Also, trying Macmini8,1 system definition is worth a try.

do you think I should give up and buy a rx 580? would be easier?

I will try to modify the connectors if it does not work, which board is worth buying?

IGPU on Coffee Lake should work. I've tested both 8th gen and 9th gen CPUs on my system. I'm not sure what's different with your motherboard that's causing problems... Try the connector patches.

RX 560-580 cards should be plug-n-play with Mojave. I've used a Sapphire RX 580 on a build for a friend. I have used two RX 560s (one MSI low profile and one Power Color) on personal builds. In all 3 instances, there was nothing to configure. Just plug and go. I always keep IGPU enabled and configured to be headless on builds with dGPU.

I wanted to buy a Rtx 2070 from aorus but since macOS is not supported, I thought about doing crossfire with rx 580! Is it worth me to do what?

I will try to make the process of the connectors code and I will return you thanks!

I have no experience with Crossfire and there's no support for Crossfire in macOS.

I can help with the patch, you’ll have to answer me some questions.

How many ports you have for video output? Ex: Hdmi, Display Port, Vga.

What are you using now?

One more thing, to enable the patch I’ll need your EFI folder here.
