...and the DSDT may have also cleaned up my audio output listings, because I just noticed (it might be 10.13.5 doing this too) that my speakers output is cleaned up:

1. My AppleTV
2. Digital Out
3. Internal Speakers
4. Line Out
5. Line Out
6. (HDMI) - MyMonitorBrandAndModel

Hmm...maybe this is what I had before. Don't remember the monitor being there.

Only thing I haven't gotten working yet is my Apple Watch (login). I know BT works because I can pair with a BT mouse, so something else is wrong. Time to log out of iCloud, log in, and see if that fixes it. :(

Sigh. Looks like per http://www.idownloadblog.com/2015/10/16/how-to-find-your-macs-bluetooth-version/ that my BT card (a 4360CS2, IIRC, that I got secondhand from Amazon for $20 or so) is LMP Version 4 (which means BT2.1) so ... I can't use it with my Apple watch.

:(

Putting this little thing into the motherboard was a PITA; it has the (even) smaller of the two tiny antenna standards. I don't relish replacing it. We'll see; I suspect I'll manage with this for a while. :(

Agh! Per https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT206995 I show (Wifi, granted, not BT - but shouldn't Apple have the smarts to figure that out, since it's all one device?) -- "Auto Unlock: Supported" so it _should_ work. Agghh.....

Although I read almost everything I can't find anything about an USB lag issue. Since a while I noticed lag every few second it interrupts for half a second and then it continues butter smooth. I disabled all programs loading at start, tried removal of SSDT-USB.aml / rolled back older version USBInjectAll but it doesn't make a difference. I found this already and it seems more people having same issue. https://www.******.com/r/hackintosh/comments/88lsj5/macos_10134_upgrade_mouse_laggingstuttering/
Did I miss it in this thread and is there someone who have possibly a fix for it?

Have you considered the card instillation chef does in post #40 ?

PCI listings in System Report. Aside from that your EFI (nVidia was what I started with) was perfect.

Be careful with using DSDTs made for other computers. Even on real iMacs, there's no PCI-e info. That's purely cosmetic and not needed. It makes even less sense on an ITX motherboard where there's only one PCI-e slot. You should know what video card you have plugged in. If you don't, all the info is in System Information>Graphics/Display. Otherwise, DPCIManager can also provide info on what's in your PCI-e slots.

Anything particular to do with the SSD Samsung 970 EVO NVMe ? Any kext or patch ?

Nothing special needed to be done. Just initialize with Disk Utility.

I have never experienced this. I use my Magic Mouse 2 pretty much exclusively and only use my Magic Trackpad 1 when the mouse is charging or when I need to Trackpad Handwriting.

Besides you, there was one other user who reported the same issue to me, but, again, I was never able to reproduce the problem and he eventually swapped out his video card and the problem went away. I don't remember which video cards he used.

Yes, that's the exact card I'm using. Apologies to misreading it - I'd interpreted (4.0) in paren as the part to mean BT2.1, but I should have taken the 0x6 part. :( --- too late last night to be working on the Hackintosh!

I found a possible solution. I removed XHCI-200-series-injector.kext and the SSDT-USB.aml in clover. I enabled the 837D8C10 / 837D8C1B replace patch in clover. The lags are gone however now I keep black screen from wake. To be honest I have a slightly different mainboard (Asus Z370 Prime-A) but it worked in 10.13.3 smooth and I think it started to be an issue in 10.13.4 (not sure for 100%) but in 10.13.5 its an issue.
