I use the Sapphire Vega 64 reference model, if that helps.

30 bit display do not support 10 bit color depth so at this point the vega is pointles in photoshop, also the rx580 is compatible with 30 bit but not with 10 bit Hdr

Hi all.

Z390 Aorus Pro
i9-9900K
64GB RAM
OSX 10.14.6
Vega 64

I built my system very close to the spec in this thread, and used all the attached kexts, etc. It worked great for some months, but now USB3 seems to have stopped working.

I just tried plugging in a USB3 external drive, and none of the USB3 ports are working. I tried all D&E ports per the port layout shown in post #1. I also tried 2 other USB3 thumb drives that are known to work on other systems. I also tried re-installing USBPorts.kext and restarting, but that didn't solve the problem.

Anyone else loose USB3 functionality?

thx!

I have the same motherboard with 9900KF and I noticed when 'sleep' the screen is black while the LED on MB and CPU/case fans are still on. Is that what sleep supposed to be?
My H270m hack is completely quiet when sleep.

Completely off when asleep. Do you have the Z390 Aorus Pro?

Yes, Z390 Aorus Pro. I used the SSDT-UIAC file in the #1 post(I didn't use EC and USBX), I also made my own from scratch. Both have the same results. If I unplug my wifi/bt card from pcie and usb header, sleep is completely quiet. So the issue is related to usb header. Header should be USB11 which is a hub actually, could that be the issue? If so, that will happen to everyone which is not the case. I'm totally confused.

I have the both Fenvi Wifi/BT card and the Titan Ridge Thunderbolt cards attached to their PCIe slots, headers and internal USB2. All works 100% with sleep and wake. I used the SSDTs and the USBports.kext from page 1.

Will attach a copy of my EFI for you to try out with fresh random serial numbers, note this requires native NVRAM by unlocking the CFG-lock register so try the unlock first then the EFI, the same values work on our Z390 Aorus boards.

Still no luck.
I change the CFG-lock register, use your EFI (modify my own plist to retain SN and all that, modify my bootflag etc. to yours.). With darkwake=8, can't sleep at all. Remove darkwake and I can get back to where I was: display is off but fan is still spinning, fan will stop after like 30s for 5s but then back spinning.
Any other suggestions? Really appreciate the help!

That's really odd. The only other difference between our setups is your Vega 64. Try removing the 5700XT SSDT in ACPI > Patched and the dAGMP kext.
BIOS settings all normal?
It wasn't needed on my system but have a look at the sleep / wake fix posted over here:
