Hello to the Hero X users
I recently changed from fakeSMC (Multibeast) to virtualSMC 1.2 (OpenCore, OC gen X 0.66)
on my ASUS Maximus Hero X board Big Sur 12.2.1

virtualSMC does not let me adjust fan speeds. I use Macs Fan Control. All readings are OK. Temps, Speeds
But fan speed can't be adjusted. with fakeSMC I had no problems before. I can't put the fans on low speed any more. Silent mode in the BIOS also has no effect.

Do you have the same issue with Hero X motherboard and virtualSMC?

Many Thanks.

Hi Stork. MacOS 11.3 is almost here. I'm thinking of installing it. Right now I'm in Mojave 14.6. Do you recommend the update? Are you planning to do it in this build in the near future?

Yes. Yes. However, let's see what the first users have to say about 11.3. I've got Big Sur 11.2.2 on a test drive. I like it on my 4K monitor as the text is much crisper and easy to read.

For anyone interested, I have successfully updated direct from last Mojave to current version of Big Sur with no issues whatsoever. Still using Clover (latest version 5132) but with all Acidanthera kexts, and just ran the update straight from the Sys Prefs software update.

Install took a LONG time with several reboots along the way. I made sure to unhide and select the 'preboot' partition for Big Sur after install (the same as OpenCore uses). I am pleased to say it has been rock solid for a week since. @Stork you will be happy to hear that the flashed Thunderbolt still works perfectly as well with the SSDT!
