Awesome Build Guide!

Yet I'm still having problems. I'm hoping someone can help quickly, I'm on kind of a time crunch! I'm in the Navy, my house is in Louisiana and I'm stationed in California. The Hackintosh at issue is used as a Home Server/Plex Media Server and I'm leaving to go back to California in a couple of days.

So here it goes, my hardware configuration is as follows:

Gigabyte Z390 Aorous Pro WiFi - BIOS ver F11
Intel i9-9900K (not OC'd)
Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro DDR4 3200MHz - 64GB (4x16GB)
Samsung 970 EVO NVMe M.2 - 1TB x 2
Onboard Graphics

I'm running High Sierra because I'm also running macOS Server with services that were eliminated in the next version of macOS Server. May upgrade at a later time, but no time to mess with that now.

I can get the system to run; however, performance is very slow, it's especially noticeable when I use Launchpad, at which point you can watch the screen update, almost line by line.

I've tried too many permutations of Clover, Config.sys files, etc. I'm using Sys Def 18,2. I'm not sure about all the USB ports; however, Ethernet, WiFi & Bluetooth (Add on card), and Onboard Audio all work. The system is just SLOW.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Anyone running a similar system with onboard graphics that would be willing to share their EFI folder?

Thank You
Troy

Navigate to (your flash drive EFI volume)/EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/- Delete AptioMemoryFix-64.efi+ Download and Add OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi
Have you updated this machine to Catalina? And did you have any issues with this Kext?
I lost mDP from my GPU after the update. So went to update to Clover 5102 in an attempt to fix the problem, and have now run into a problem booting into my "test EFI" with the following error:

Someone in another thread is telling me to not use OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi. But every other user with a z390 Aoros I can find is using this kext. Including yourself, so I am interested to know if you have any advice?

UPDATE:
fixed the problem with this guide:

Literally the only place I found an alternative to OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000 after hours of searching!
Audio and mDP fixed!

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!

No change here, everything working fine with 10.15.4 supplemental update installed.

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.
