Your GTX 760 is still supported, IIRC. Check your System Information to see if the 760 is Metal compatible.
Yes it is Metal Compatible. Wow, what a pleasant surprise. Angry at myself for not realizing that before. Thanks Stork! Now I just need to schedule some time to work through a fresh install and figure out whether I'm ready to plunge into Catalina or even Big Sur (in a month?...).

I'm surprised this thread is still on Clover. OpenCore is really superior, and kind of easy, if you read the manual.

Maddeen has done most of the work

Tried with 0.5.9 - everything worked except it would always crash upon wake (black screen, full fans).

I didn't notice any performance difference with OC, albeit in apps or boot time.

There is a reason they call it Beta 0.x.x. I'm still Mojave, and, until I get my 32bit apps updated or replaced, Mojave will be the macOS for my production hackintoshes.

Recently switched to OpenCore 0.6 + Catalina (Sapphire Pulse 580 RX along my 1080 Ti) and everything is working like a charm.

The OpenCore documentation is really great

@jonz did you have to do alteration from default values for this mother board? Do you mind posting your config.plist and screenshot of ACPI and Kext folders?
@Stork OC might be in beta, but my experience is OC is way more stable (and better documented) than Clover.
