I upgraded to Mojave with this board, unfortunately Nvidia is no longer supported.
However good news is that the onboard graphics works well.
I got the integrated graphics working by using multibeast with the core graphics evergreen/lilu patch. I also set my graphics to start with the integrated graphics in the bios.

Oh ok, I've got a GTX970 and it's no supported.
My integrated graphics is being detected by whatevergreen as an Intel HD 630.

Have you had any issues with sleep? I've been getting kernel panics when waking from sleep.
I fixed this panic below by using the clover USB max ports limit fix:
Code:
      Kernel Extensions in backtrace:
         com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPlatform(6.1)[52CE91F1-D89E-3BF2-A5BE-0A914968DC65]@0xffffff7fa17c7000->0xffffff7fa1862fff

Now I'm getting this panic when waking from sleep, which is related to the integrated graphics:

I swapped the nvidia gpu with a
Radeon RX 580 8 GB
and everything works flawless now :)

I recently just did the USB fix which creates a custom kext so that all usb 3.0 ports work all the time 100% of the time forever DM me if you're interested on that file

Ok yeah sure, I'm interested :) I was having issues with my USB-C port... I thought maybe the config.plist "Remove USB port limit in XHCI" kextkext patch would fix it? I haven't tested it yet though.
Also I'm gonna stay on high sierra until I feel I really need to update to mojave so I can stick with using my GTX 970
I'm currently using these kexts:

oh, from the motherboard im using usb port except the usb-c one since i don't really have cables for it and the red usb port since im also using 2 usb 3.0 from the front of my case.

So maybe my tweaked kext might not apply to you.

Anyways this is the video i followed to perma turn on the usb ports i needed:


I'll attach my USBMap.kext here anyways but it has maps for the usb ports to this cabinet:

Cheers, thanks for the info. Your kext sounds like a good start before I invest the time into checking all my ports.
