I was previously running Mojave, then Catalina on an Asus M32D (i7-7000 ,32G ram, RX-580, Samsung Evo) but always wanted to build myself something I could use to essentially combine my old Dell R710 with my Hackintosh so I could have everything "under one roof" if you will. I decided on the following hardware;

Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix Z490-E Gaming
CPU: Intel 10700K
PSU: Thermaltake - SMART 700W ATX 80 Plus Power Supply
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 48GB (2 x 8GB, 2x32) DDR4 2400
GPU: Radeon RX 580
Wi-Fi/BT: Built in Intel AX201 (thanks to the Open IntelW ireless project). (Handoff / Continuity working)

Ethernet: I225-V:
Even this is natively supported according to the Open Core guides, Big Sur could not find the adapter. But thank you to scope666
for posting a custom kext which allowed Big Sur to find the adapter

Storage: 1x Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500GB NVMe
Case: CORSAIR - iCUE 220T RGB Airflow ATX Mid-Tower Smart Case - Black
CPU Cooler: MSI MAG CORELIQUID 240R - AIO RGB CPU Liquid Cooler - Rotating Cap Design - 240mm Radiator - Dual 120mm RGB PWM Fans

Notes from the install:
BE PATIENT!!!! Big Sur takes a long time to install. I REPEAT, BE PATIENT!! It is oh so tempting to think something went wrong if you are stuck on one screen for a long time, but PLEASE, let things run their course.

After about a week of tweaking and tuning, much to my surprise, EVERYTHING WORKS, (iMessage, Mail. Hand-Off, Wireless, etc.)
I uploaded my EFI Folder in case anyone is having issues or is not sure where to start.

Thank you to everyone in the community and forums for being such great resources.

Will this EFI work on the i9-10900K cpu with Saphphire Nitro+ RX 5700 XT card?

You should be abled to have a nice solid setup with those specs and with a 2020 Mac Model. You will need to use the boot arg agdpmod=pikera for your RX 5700 Card and you will good to go. Good luck.

Just plugged this EFI into my desktop (see signature) while trying to get bluetooth working on Catalina and everything other than the built in wifi seems to be working, am using ethernet so that doesn't matter. iMessage seems to work but it's not something I especially care about so haven't looked too long.


Motherboard: Asus Rog Strix Z490-G Gaming (Wifi)
CPU: Intel i5-10400
GPU: Sapphire RX580 Pulse 8GB
Memory: Crucial Ballistix 8GBx2
PSU: Corsair RM750x
Storage: Kingston 120GB SSD (unsure or model specifics, it's just what I had lying around)

Currently using HDMI out via the GPU but will switch to DP if it works.

Will take a stab at updating to Big Sur (more likely just do a fresh install) next weekend and hopefully remember to give an update when I get around to it.

=================

Currently observed to not work:
- Wifi (actually this is now working, unsure if it has anything to do with switching to Big Sur or moving the EFI files to the drive the device is running on, struggling to see what else it could be)
- S/PDIF audio ( this thread looks like it may help https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...-audio-from-realtek-best-option.228368/page-5 )

Issues (roughly in order of importance):
- Ethernet cuts out following sleep, can still use wifi until the next sleep, then need to reset. Will be debugging I'm sure
- getting that "The System has POSTed in safe mode" screen on the first boot after using opencore that seems relatively common and fixable and I'll look into it when I've time but is also kinda easy to just skip past
- there's some super brief error message that appears on screen right before the opencore UI boots, has not caused me any issues that I'm aware of
- 3200MHz RAM is running at 2133MHz, I'm sure this applies to my Windows partition too and is just some BIOS configuration issue
- I've spotted a few visual glitches but hard to tell if it's just me being paranoid (e.g. icons loading slowly in Finder)

Yet to attempt but planning to:
- Boot windows from separate drive in opencore
- Test for issues with sleep (ongoing)


=================

Update 1:
Had a pretty busy week but done a Big Sur installation and had no issues with the installation. Using it for the first time now and seem to have no issues beyond optical audio not being detected (S/PDIF), which is honestly quite surprising! All additional drives are being detected (Windows NTFS M2 drive, 2TB exFat SATA),
The plan is to have the MacOS environment to be exclusively used for side projects and workish type stuff, whilst using Windows as my default for recreational use (and my work Macbook for work). With this in mind I probably won't bother to sort out the S/PDIF as I'll basically always be wearing headphones. I would however like to get my windows drive to boot from opencore so I'll be looking into that next.

Hey man so I have a similar setup as you so I downloaded the EFI folder and mounted it. First the installer is in Russian and I can't find anything on changing it. I ended up adding in a "child" in the Nvme section for english. Didn't help though. After the install happened I got caught in a boot loop. I'm erasing my usb AGAIN and redownloading the efi folder and big sur for the 3rd time. What am I missing here? Thanks!
