@kgp At the moment 3200MHz @ CL14 (only 32GB). But tomorrow I get my new ordered 128 GB Corsair with 3000MHz @ CL14 (I know, a little slower but more memory)

P.S. The AppleALC Solution should always be the best one, because the Apple files staying untouched.

Yeah I think that's the best method anyway, but opinions differ.

Hmmm, surprising.. with your Geekbench scores I would expected something like 3600 Mhz RAM memory..

You have a delidded i9-7960X?

No i didnt. I am not sure to do this. Because I will loose warranty, and its a very expensive piece of hardware. At the moment I use allsync with 3.9Ghz and undervolting (offset -0.105V). I use a quiet air cooler, and get max. 70°C. Maybe I will buy a kraken x62 AIO. (Is quiet and good)

O.K. now I understand why 3,9 Ghz.. Anyway, your Geekbench scores are fantastic :thumbup:

Even too high for my taste :lol:

Is your H115i charged with Red Bull? :lol::lol:

Hello, could you please guide me for this issue at step CloverALC audio approach installation:

When lauching the "audio_cloverALC-130_v0.4.command" (audio_cloverALC-130.sh) I have this error in terminal:
Code:
Error: no IOReg/HDEF; BIOS/audio/disabled or ACPI problem

Though I've followed the previous steps in config.plist.
Thanks for all!

One question, did you backup the vanilla AppleHDA.kext before Clover patching?

You now that you have to reinstall the vanilla Apple HDA.kext in /S/L/E with the proper permissions for the other two methods?

I would never apply CloverAlC. AppleALC is definitely the easiest approach to be implemented .

Yes I did, it's all backed up. When I switch from one method to another, I make sure to restore the original AppleHDA.kext. I'm using Kext Utility to restore the kext.
