OK, for those who haven't been following...
And now I'll be testing sleep...
Vega 64 card arrived over the weekend, so swapped out the NVidia 1070 FTW from EVGA for the MSI Radeon Vega 64 OC Air Boost card. Nothing needed doing in terms of system prep - just swapped the cards and turned the system back on. Screen settings/scale were preserved.
I also took the opportunity to clean the inside of the case - wow, a lot of dust. Not really visible through the side, however, definitely dusty. Semi-annual cleaning may be in order.
I can't remark on "system smoothness" yet, though with the current setup (minus the NVidia card), everything is operating as expected. There is a perceptible fan running on the video card. The Corsair Air case is like a European car on the road - you can feel every bump, and the case allows you to hear every noise. The fan isn't a horrible thing (definitely FAR less noise than the older server I have sitting next to me), but I may have to install that fan kext if I notice anything odd about it. The NVidia fans, if they ever even came on, were practically silent.
Thanks @pastrychef !
@pastrychef - is this the right kext: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/t...n-high-sierra/?do=findComment&comment=2612305
