Wooooo that was fun, got all the stuff working for making the HackrNVMeFamily-10_12_4.kext and the SSDT-NVMe-Pcc.aml
( Running on the m.2 960 EVO 250GB boot drive )
Its snappier than the single SSD

I still have not loaded in a SSDT file for my 6700K which is Overclocked by 15%, I haven't seen any problems yet?

I DO have an issue with my M.2 960 EVO speeds, See screen shots, I get random WRITE speeds between 300 and 1500 MB/s while READ keeps hitting 2000 MB/s

Is there a way to optimize this ?

Thanks.

Also to get my audio working with a Schitt USB WYRD connected to a BIFROST + VALHALLA 2 I had to use multibeast to load in VoodooHDA v2.8.8 Additionally to get my MIC in to work same fix.

I share mine SSDT-NVMe-Pcc and HackrNVMeFamily-10_12_4.kext
Use at your own risk.
Mi spoof was 9.
Same M.2 960
I get better scoring and stability with Pike method.

EDIT: use Aja system on App Store to check M.2 disk.

Which M.2 socket is your NVMe SSD in? The one on the top of the motherboard?

I've got a (mostly) successful build up and running!
Thank so much for this build instructions! It was easy and loving the Asus Hero so far!!!

Only quirks I'm having is sometimes my monitor loses connection after reboot and I have to unplug and replug in the DisplayPort and then it comes right up.... strange.

Also my usb 3.0 ports are extremely slow read/write speeds... any ideas?

Thanks again!

My bad. I should have remembered that the VIII HERO has only one M.2 slot. I've been reading about other ASUS motherboards lately that have two M.2 slots, and I thought our HERO had two, also. (A Senior moment.)

Thanks for posting your SSDT-NVMe-Pcc along with the spoof version of the HackrNVMeFamily-10_12_4.kext as they will help others survive updates when using the M.2 NVMe SSDs.

However, each user should be aware, as RehabMan points out in his guide, that non Samsung 950/960 M.2 NVMe SSDs may have a different spoof identity required for the SSDT. Forewarned.

Has anyone here used or heard how the GTX 1080 Ti performs? It's the card I am leaning towards and tried several searches with nothing solid.

This really isn't the right thread for that question...

Also, searching the board here will show a few folks who have installed a 1080 series card.
