Hi,
I installed 11.2 using OC, then I switched to Clover.
Few days later, when 11.2.1 was released, I updated to 11.2.1 with Clover bootloader successfully.
Unfortunately, I have never been able to make USB 3 to work for a while.
Fortunately, I managed to get my WiFi to work.

Edit: One thing I should point out though, on Clover Boot Screen, always select 'Preboot' partition to boot.
Thank you for replying. I think I will stay on OpenCore for now. I will try to manage USB 3 from here. :)
The strange thing is Geekbench doesn't give me the score I was thinking. It tells me RAM speed is 800 MHz while I'm at 1600.

I'm having slow scores on Geekbench.
I'm on BigSur with OpenCore and I read it could be due to BIOS settings, wich are the best for RIVE?

What type of drive? I get this error occasionally if I have not secure erased an SSD/NVMe. After doing so, I can still get the error, at which point I simply reformat using disk utility (either Apple journaled or APFS). You might try APFS and see how it goes...

Here's mine.

Why don't you just move on to Big Sur instead?
I am now using R4BE with Intel E5-2640 v2 and NVidia GTX Titan Black, but I guess it's not much different from your system.
Other than USB3, everything works well.
It is Clover 5122.

I also attach my EFI for Big Sur in case you are interested to try.
It's Opencore 0.64 (I guess).
Thanks to @altixx. I modified his/her shared Opencore EFI to match my system.
However, I still cannot manage to get my USB3, Wifi and Bluetooth to work.

Let me know how it goes.


Edit: I forgot to thank @altixx for his/her shared EFI. Thanks @altixx
Hey there.

First of all, thank you for you work and help.

Your folder works great under BigSur 11.4 and using OpenCore 11.4.

I did manage to get Wifi working with AirportBcrmFixUp, if you're interested.

I have the USB 3.0 ports partially working (the ports that are linked to the USB 3.0 header on the board and not the ones at the I/O panel at the back, those do not work).

However, I have been wondering the following:

I have been trying to update to the latest OpenCore (0.7.0), but anything over the version you have (0.6.4) just produces a black screen and an unresponsive system (it shuts down the second I hit the power button).
It produces a 240Kb log file, which I cannot open at all.

I am unable to boot this way.

Is there any way we can update to the latest version of OpenCore?
(I have already updated all the kexts).

EDIT:
Forgot to mention my system, but it is in my signature.

Regardless, here's what I'm working with:
Rampage IV Black Edition (0801 Modded BIOS)
i7-3930k
Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3Gb (patched for native MacOS support)
8Gb RAM
480Gb SSD + 4Tb HDD + 2Tb HDD

EDIT 2:
I am attaching my DSDT in both aml and dsl format, if anyone is willing to help.

Thank you in advance.
