Thanks, @Stork. Perfect info. My mobo: ASUS Republic of Gamers Maximus XI Hero (Wi-Fi) LGA 1151 ATX Motherboard w/ i9-9900. Ordered the NVMe ssd. Appreciate the hand holding. My plan is to get this working with a RX 580 and Final Cut Pro + Photoshop CC. I probably have my work cut out for me.
My experience with MyHero II has been painless so far. Don't be in a hurry. Do your homework. I found that I had to use the FrameBuffer config.plist patch because my RX 580 had a different part number than the part number (I think it's two) in Apple's drivers in High Sierra 10.13.6 and Mojave. The model number was the same, but it was a newer card with a different part number. But, that was my only exciting moment.

Since you have an i9 processor, I'd wait to until 10.14.5 is released as rumor has it that iMac19,1/2/3 System Definition is fully supported which is i9 friendly. 10.14.5 is expected out shortly. BTW, the latest MultiBeast for Mojave supports the iMac19 system def's.

Excellent news! In fact, 10.14.5 is already out in beta, so the release will probabaly arrive when my backordered case does! I'll look up that framebuffer patch, too. (Any tips in dealing with that?) Thanks again.

@Stork what Bios are you on with the Hero X?
Just curious if I should update it.

I'm still on the 1802. I won't be able to update until later as I'm visiting family for the Easter holiday.

Thanks for the heads up on the newer BIOS.

Awesome write up! I have the same exact build as you except I have the Vega 56 card. However I am experiencing a issue with my case fans spinning really fast. Anyway to fix that issue?

I got the fan issue resolved! I was wondering if you would be kind enough to upload the SSDT for the Maximus Hero X? I can't quite wrap my head around it.

Thanks!

An SSDT for what use? What version of macOS?

I'm not currently using an SSDT for USB, if that's what you want. I'm using the USB config.plist patches that are in the latest MultiBeast for Mojave release.
