surprising that it shows 0W for CPU Package DRAM, with 128GB of RAM it should easily be in the 25-30W range...

Don't be too picky ;).. Be happy that everything works like it does.. Many efforts to have everything implemented in this way..

Few tiny things will still be improved in the near future.. :thumbup:

can you point to where I can find that patch so I test and see if it makes any difference?

there...
The only point for this kext is to prevent the conversion from HFS+ to apfs

Edit: sorry misread, i was still on the talk about the unsolid part

Well, it works for me though... Hence why I'm surprised it's not showing on yours...

That report is CPU / X299 controller bound, there shouldn't be a difference between boards (luckily)

Well don't ask me.. better ask @interferenc or @kozlek. I guess it basically has to do with a different SuperIOSensor implementation for the different boards.

the patch allows for a disc previously not attached to a sata port to be recognized.

Without this patch disc must be attached to a sata port prior to boot in order to be recognized and mounted (Finder and Disk Utility)

The downside you see internal discs as external.


Ehy @kgp...the PCIe 4 port SATA board works too now!

Moved to slot PCIEX1_2 ---> Slot 5


Bingo!

In BIOS enable Hot Plug only for those SATA port that you will be hotpluging.

With this patch it is like that:
every SATA port that has Hot Plug set to Enable in BIOS will be hot swapable and will show up as external disk.
every SATA port that has Hot Plug set to Disable in BIOS will NOT be hot swapable and will show up as internal disk.

by hot swapable I mean, that with a running system you can attach disk to SATA port, that was empty when the system was started.

At least that is how it works on my system.

And without that patch, hot plug is not working for you either? I wonder why I am the only one with native SATA hot plug functionality...

Yup, with out it is not working.

No idea why it is working for you and not for me.

BTW has it been working for you from the beginning? I mean 13.1/13.2? As I have been using this patch since 13.2. Haven't tried hot plug without it on 13.3. Maybe apple fixed it somewhere in between.
Gonna run some more tests.

EDIT: Nope, without patch it does not work.
