I certainly understand the need for silence. I will look into that. Thanks!
finally, Gigabyte has admitted the issue and will arrange to fix it
Looks like Gigabyte released BIOS version F8a:
I'm currently running F7 and can't say I have issues with fans running at full speed on wake up. I'm also using darkwake=0 instead of darkwake=10 as the OP (if I choose no darkwake or any other number the system cannot wake from sleep or reboots; darkwake=0 makes the system wake up fast because it disables Power Nap completely).
However, I am using a beQuiet! case with beQuiet! fans attached directly to SATA power, so they run full speed all the time anyway (can't literally hear them even at full speed). The CPU fan however is fine, with HWMonitor reports speed correctly and a cool 29 degrees temperature.
Some other things I had to do were to disable one of the USB 3.0 ports to get under the 15 port limit without using a patch (I have 16 total used). Also, if I may ask OP what the SSDT-EC.aml and SSDT-USBX.aml are for? Something about USB power?
Also, what are all those extra AppleHDA patches in config.plist needed for? I'm using AppleALC with ID 1 and sound is working fine.
Gigabyte has just admitted the issue and they will look into it
Found something interesting regarding the fan speed problem after sleep:
So I was on F7 and updated to F8a. After a BIOS update, everything resets back to factory defaults. I then went and changed settings to the usual basics required for macOS. However, this time I decided to change the RGB LED to Off and color to Red instead of Blue (even though it didn't do anything). I then went and disabled Serial and Parallel Ports in Super IO since they weren't going to be used. Now after doing that, I started to get full blast fan speeds after sleep with 0rpm reporting on HWMonitor, YIKES!!
So I went back to F7 with the exact settings minus RGB LED and Parallel + Serial Port being changed. Fans are now normal again after sleep. I then upgrade again to F8a again leaving those two above settings alone. Fans are also now working fine after sleep!
So I guess one of the two settings could have caused an issue.
Also, this is on an HD3 board and not a HD3P. So it may not apply to you.
Here are my settings that I only changed in BIOS and for my fans to work perfectly after sleep:
Save & Exit → Load Optimized Defaults
M.I.T. → Advanced Memory Settings Extreme Memory Profile(X.M.P.) : Profile1
Peripherals → Trusted Computing → Security Device Support : Disabled
Peripherals → USB Configuration → Legacy USB Support : Auto
Peripherals → USB Configuration → XHCI Hand-off : Enabled
Chipset → Wake on LAN Enable : Disabled
Chipset → Integrated Graphics : Enabled
Chipset → DVMT Pre-Allocated :128M
Leave everything else alone! You may need to reflash your BIOS if the above doesn't work. It worked for me.
