Update to Mojave went well. Only issue I had was a problem with Clover Configurator, 5.2.0.1 would not work, while 5.1.3.1 did, so that was an easy work-around.

The upgrade took longer than Sierra or High Sierra, but all in all, it was a very straightforward upgrade.

Nice boost in performance on my Sapphire Nitro Vega 64 and overall on Geekbench for the CPU and the Graphics Card!

I'm eager to receive the Gigabyte GC-Titan Ridge TB Card, expected to be delivered tomorrow. Soon as I get it, I will try to install and configure it. I hope the connection cable (card to the motherboard) fits.....

Titan Ridge needs both THB_C and USB2.0 internal connection. Without the USB2.0 cable, USB-C won’t work.

Titan Ridge needs both THB_C and USB2.0 internal connection. Without the USB2.0 cable, USB-C won’t work.

So, the BCM4360 wireless/bluetooth card takes an internal USB 2.0 port with its block connector (which actually takes up both internal USB 2.0 ports - one portion of the block being empty and one being used), and now the Titan Ridge also must use an internal USB 2.0 connection? There is only one USB internal connector on X299 Prime motherboard, as least as far as I can tell, so how did you get it work? Did you connect the wires onto the unused section of the connection block that is provided by the BCM4360 card?

There are two possibilities:

1.) you buy an internal USB2.0 hub. Preferentially the one linked in my guide.

2 you buy a cabel with 1x internal and 1x external connector and connect your BT/WIFI or Titan Ridge to one of the external USB ports.

I had a similar challenge on my Prime-A motherboard. My wireless card only required USB for power, so I was able to just take the 2 power leads (grey in the photo) and insert them into the appropriate lead spots on the open side of the USB connector. Works like a charm!

This is a not a great photo, as I didn't want to open the case but it should give you the general idea.

Thank you for the guide @kgp . Did macOS Mojave finally know what our CPU ID is ? It says Intel Xeon W now for my 7900x instead of "unknown cpu" before . Also my asus TB3 card died too and i have never actually use it other than installing the hardware and setting it up to be ready for use.... I supposed you had the same problem with yours since you're using a different TB3 card.

It says Xeon W due to the CPU type entry hardwired in the config.plist of my EFI-Folder distribution.

My TBEX 3 never died. I just don’t use it anymore, as I do have now the GC-Titan Ridge in my X299 rig and the former GC-Alpine Ridge in my X99 rig.
