Thanks for your awesome work!

I have a MSI X99A (+ 6850k) which is really complicated to run hackintosh with. But it is still running though. (10.13.5)

I cant boot with Aptiomemoryfix, need free2000 and i need to run with Fake CPUID 0x0306F2 (isnt booting with 0x040670) but changed SMBios to iMacPro and my CPU is running normally.

With the new TSCSync Kext i get a TSC KP at boot (TSC Sync Error)

OC isnt working - do you have a tip for me? I've read your several guides multiple times!

I tested every combination of Kernel Patches of yours and mine but its still not working. XCPM is running and SSDT is generated with -turbo 4200.

My drivers64uefi folder:

Have Blackscreen without Lilu + Fixup

Thanks for your help and keep up the amazing work! :)
Have you tried with SMBIOS and FAKE CPUID 0x040674 (I believe that is Broadwell-E identifier). Also check out the new EFI Folder kgp uploaded in post #1700, it saved my current setup (which uses your exact same CPU btw)..

Yes, I implemented it and it's working great. BTW, awesome refresh to the X99 guide. Thanks for taking the time to do it!

There's still some improvement to do with Power Management in my particular case, but the new EFI made a huge performance difference!

@yannh1992 you should try it in your build!

AptioMemory and AptioInput.......Hot off the presses......seems a bit slower, but perhaps a bit more compatible......use with caution!!
