We've now received some reports that the TP-Link WDN4800 chipset is not supported in Mojave. Nuts! OK. I know the TP-Link T9E works. Love its' speed.
Just bought a second hand T9E and installed it on my Hack. Worked OOB...

Hello @Stork

may I upgrade the 6700k with a 9700k on the Hero VIII?

I'm on HS, waiting for the nvidia webdrivers LOL (seems like it will never happen)

I considering to buy a RX880 pulse to replace my GTX1070, then upgrade to MOJAVE.
Is it just plug-n-play if I do it?

For some reason, my build freezes sometimes. It happens when I'm importing multiples files from SD cards (vídeos/pictures) or when editing big files on Premiere Pro/Photoshop. It freezes and only a reset makes it work again. Do you think it might be a problem related to my SD Crucial M2 Mx300? Seems like the system crashes when it's writing/copying files. I did reinstalled HS twice and the problem keeps happening. What is the most compatible SD do you suggest?

Thank you so much!

No unfortunately you cannot go to that processor using your current board. I went with a Gigabyte Z390 board and i9-9900K which can use the chip you mention. I rebuilt the 6700K into a smaller build.

Confirmed. The i9 has a different pin layout/socket configuration than the VIII HERO motherboard.

Oh, ok. Thought it would fit on the socket. Thanks!
