Try each of the DisplayPorts until you find the one that is working.
I have (seen from backside left to right) 2 HDMIs and 2 DisplayPorts. I tried both DisplayPorts. No luck without WhateverGreen.
Maybe it works with HDMI but my monitor doesn't support HDMI 2.0 so its not an option.

Please try this one.

You still need to populate the Serial, Board Serial, and UUID.
Thanks for your help. With that config.plist, all the USB ports in the back and the front works.
However, the wonkinest continues: When HS05/SS05 or HS01/SS01 is occupied by a mouse or keyboard, plugging a thumb drive in HS06/SS06 or HS02/SS02 would disable the mouse/keyboard respectively.

Should I try to map my USB ports? What is USR1 and USR2 in the new config file?

Ah. Your card has a different layout than the reference cards. Reference has 1 HDMI and 3 DisplayPort. Not sure how that would affect things.

If you are using the Z370-G, the mapping will be the same.

I have no idea why you are experiencing weird behavior.

USR1 and USR2 are not used.

Try leaving IORegistryExplorer open to see what's going on when you plug things in to USB.

I had some free time today so I remapped the USB ports.
I realise the dsl file in post #1 is not accurate (m.2 bluetooth USB port is actually HS07, not HS14; HS09 and HS10 should be USB2 only - "UsbConnector" : 0 instead of 3, etc...). Maybe that's your old draft? I've attached my version here.

Also, I find out that the two red USB ports (3.1 gen 2) are not under XHC@14. They are under RP05@1C,4
Top port:
USB3: PRT1: 01 00 00 00
USB2: PRT3: 03 00 00 00
Bottom port:
USB3: PRT2: 02 00 00 00
USB2: PRT4: 04 00 00 00



I'm not sure the red ports should be counted towards the 15, giving that it's controlled by a different chipset:

Yes, I know some of the commenting is wrong. Just been too lazy to fix it. Commenting will not affect functionality.

Oh! Good eye! Yes, I have to correct HS09 and HS10.

Don't worry about the USB 3.1 gen 2, they are not counted in the 15 port limit. They are on a separate controller.

Is your USB working now?

Yeap it's working now. I'm not sure if it's the cause of the random reboot previously. I guess I'll see.

If the 2 USB 3.1 gen 2 are not counted, we only have to disable 4 ports (HS11-14) to get the total number down to 15 right?
HS01-06 + SS01-06 + HS07 + HS09-10= 15 ports

Which random reboots?

No, you have to exclude HS11-14 plus HS08 (not used), SS07-10 (not used), and USR1-USR2 (not used). A total of 11 ports need to be excluded to bring total down to 15.

I just tested "Take Photo" and "Scan Documents" (my first time trying) and ti worked perfectly with my iPhone X.

It appears that SMART status on my Samsung 970 EVO (NVMe) is also disabled. I'm sure I have it enabled in BIOS. I don't know why it's not working in macOS. SMART status is working for all my other drives.
Tried again today and it did work fine, I have no idea why it didn't before, I haven't changed anything since.
Same as me, SMART is enabled on all drives except for the system NVMe.

There remains one small issue. When I finish gaming (Company of Heroes 2 in 4K which is quite a heavy GPU usage game) the fan speed falls down to 1500RPM. A sleep and wake will put the GPU back in 0 RPM again. I hope some finds out if this can be enforced or fixed by another way.
I spoke too soon, same issue. After something pushes the GPU it the fans stay on when idle, for me sleep and wake doesn't make a difference.
