to both of you, if the file posted above is not working, try this second one, I use it on my own computer with success.
The previous one was for ACPI path "_SB.PCI0.PEG0", this one is for "_SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP". Copy to EFI/Clover/ACPI/Patched folder then reboot.
Hello,

I tried your aml file, it works however. My Nvidia RTX continues to blow in place of my Vega ..
As soon i use a bench gpu or games, the fans of the RTX always make noise..

An idea ?

Sorry, my 1080ti is watercooled so I never noticed this strange behavior, can't help you.
Have a question for you, are you running a 1080ti and the R9 270 on one system? I am assuming that you toggle off the Nvidia 1080ti when running Mojave is that right? If so awesome didn't know that this was even possible. But if I am wrong correct me If I am! Thanks

You understood right, this SSDT trick allows you to make an unsupported Nvidia graphic card invisible to Mojave while being still available for other OS like Windows, for example, in multiboot. If you don't want to install a second graphic card just for Mojave, you can enable the Intel CPU integrated GPU, it works too.

Lucky. I wish a water-cooling on it now.. It makes more noise than under Windows in game 4K ..
I think the fans blow at the maximum speed. : '(
