Just updated to macOS 10.14.5 beta 3 (SMBIOS 19.2). Everything works great including iGPU.

I’m also on Beta 3 now, but with iGPU off and iMacPro 1,1 SMBIOS.

Everthing works wonderfully, especially with my RX 580 now, and DRM video works in Safari correctly also (HBOnow)

Hello,

do you think this model fit with the main board : Case
As i'm in france and I can't get the power supply is this one good : Power supply
Don't really know if I have to take a 300w or if 220w is enough.

Thank you :)

I have the same case, but aluminum (this one is from steel). Any ITX motherboard will fit. PSU300 will be enough for any CPU + RX590 or Vega 56.

But, I am not a fan of flex power supplies:

1. You need to mod it to work with consumer motherboards;
2. Make custom cables; standard cables will not fit the case;
3. Change build in fan; the standard is very noisy;
4. Selling it in the future is impossible.

Mine died in 2 months, so now I'm using Corsair SF600...

This guy has a little bigger version of this case for SFX PSU's like Corsair RX600 or RX450. I recommend you buy this version.

So how does it work with him?
You sign up to be part of a batch and they all get made at once, etc?

Sounds like you have to plan a ways out and be patient, yeah?

Yes, it was like that. At least last year.

To be honest, he is a little bit unorganized. We both live in Ukraine and I expected that I would receive my case in time. But I waited for my case for 4 months and all the experience wasn't smooth... Every month there was some kind of problem and my case was postponed for another month.

I hope his service is better now. Looks like he has some cases in stock.

Just updated to macOS 10.14.5 beta 4 and switched to SMBIOS 19.1. I found out that my USB 3 ports don't work with SMBIOS 19.2.

Hi b1,
first of all, thanks for your work and great guide, made my Mojave install way easier then my HS install last year.
Unfortunately I am having a problem with my BCM94360CS2 Wifi card. As long as I do not deactivate Wifi before sleep or disconnect the known wifi, the Computer will wake after a few seconds. Wake Reason XDCI. Otherwise it sleeps like a rock.
I am not quite sure but this might be an USB issue. I made a custom USBPorts.kext for working front USB ports HS01/02 and SS01/02 not exceeding the 15 port limit and set HS10 to internal and deactivating HS03/04 and SS03/04 completely. See enclosed.
Using the same Powermanagement settings you do.

I bought 2 cards from the same seller you did. Having the problem with both cards.
Powernap, Wake for Wifi deactivated in Settings and no other Devices connected. WOL deactivated

Did you have similar issues?
