I went through the CPUFriendFriend guide and integrated the resulting kext, however I've noticed two things so far. First iStat no longer shows CPU temperature. Second, Intel PowerGadget does and as I sit here with only a web browser and that app running, my core temperatures are bouncing around between 33C and 55C.

I'm just posting this in case anyone else comes looking for information about those apps and temperatures post-install. I'm a little concerned but I think some of this has to do with the MSI's overclocking via bios. So far my DRM is rocking along fine now (thank you again, so much, for your reply!).
Hi btgoodwin09, i have same hardware but i'm having troubles installing monterey (it starts and then stops displaying support.apple.com/mac/startup) could you please share your efi as well as your bios settings (especially for gpu and thunderbolt) also do you install monterey with hdmi plugged in motherboard (igpu) or plugged into discrete gpu ? Thanks in advance !

Any chance you can post your EFI/USB map for your MacPro7,1 switch over? I've been having issues with my USB map and Bluetooth with my current build with the same parts in an NZXT H210.

Sure thing! I mapped all the external ports, but I'm not certain which of the internal ones are mapped, I apologize! Bluetooth for sure it, though.
