Good news! All parts have come. So I've got a brand new replacement motherboard and a brand new 9700K.

Thankfully the USB 2 header splitter also arrived, as well as the Fenvi BT/WIFI card. I'm going to assemble tomorrow, however a quick pair of questions if you don't mind:

  • Do I use the USB 2 internal header splitter, add the Fenvi card to a PCIe slot, connect a cable from the Fenvi card to the splitter and also connect the case's 1x USB 2 port to the header splitter too?
  • Or should I remove some of the above steps in order to not get into too many issues, at least till everything's installed?

Thank you for your swift reply.
The mouse is a Logitech MX Master using a Logitech dongle.
Video and animations don't freeze, even the blinking cursor in a text box doesn't freeze.
The DP cable I'm using is definitely for 4k@60hz
I also checked a HDMI cable but like I said, the problem is much worse on HDMI.
I have a Logitech MX Master 3 with 4k DP, and I, as well, noticed mouse stutters/lags!
I thought I'm alone in this. Do you think its related to our configs?
Some comments / questions:
  • Have you tried a different mouse temporarily? Perhaps even a cheap wired mouse?
  • Have you installed Logitech Options software for Mac? If so, is there a firmware update available for the MX Master?
  • Have you tried move the Logitech Unifying Receiver (the USB dongle) to a different USB port?

Same error unfortunately, although it was aligned on my monitor in a different way, and pressing a key resulted in getting back to the BIOS boot menu as opposed to just a blank screen. I went back to the BIOS setup and saw that the boot order seemed to get bumped down: #1 was disabled but #2 was samsung, and then #3 was sunbow. I tried these steps twice, making sure to press F12 and select Samsung, but got the same results.
Are there any Hackintosh kexts installed in /Library/Extensions (refer to table at the top of this post)?

Hi @CaseySJ,

thanks already for the help.
So I did the following (with no success to avoid any suspense):
  • agdpmod=pikera -> Reboot, checked all HDMI and DP, HDMI work fine, DP cuts out when MacOS starts up and the login window is shown.
  • agdpmod=ignore -> Reboot, checked all HDMI and DP, HDMI work fine, DP cuts out when MacOS starts up and the login window is shown.
  • agdpmod=vit9696 -> Reboot, checked all HDMI and DP, HDMI work fine, DP cuts out when MacOS starts up and the login window is shown.
  • Removed WEG from Clover/Kext/Other, added the two lines to ACPI patches -> Reboot, checked all HDMI and DP, HDMI work fine, DP cuts out when MacOS starts up and the login window is shown.
  • Connected my Mojave backup (taken 10 minutes before kicking of the update process for Catalina), F12 into Bootoptions to select BackUp, Clover directed to boot from Backup: checked all HDMI and DP and the all work fine, no hardware changes (didn't even move the cables from previous attempt to this one)
Also this is what kextstat | grep -v apple reported:

Any ideas?

When you upgraded from Mojave to Catalina, did you follow this guide:
Because it looks as if you're using KGP's X299-based FakeSMC sensor kexts. It would be best to follow the above guide, but skip the steps for actually reinstalling Catalina. In other words, follow all the procedures that remove Hackintosh kexts from Mojave and create a new EFI folder on a USB flash disk. If Catalina can boot from that folder and your DP/HDMI functionality is okay, then you can copy the EFI folder from USB disk to the EFI partition of the Catalina SSD. Be sure to follow the steps that copy SMBIOS and RtVariables from Mojave config.plist to Catalina config.plist.

Alright, back in business! I would proceed with full system installation -- i.e. install all components. Regarding the USB splitter, your statement is correct. Connect both items to the splitter and later we'll modify the USB SSDT accordingly. I will need a screenshot of IORegistryExplorer with HS11 and HS12 expanded.

I am having an issue where it appears all the sudden the Thunderbolt 3 / USB C ports stop working. I have restarted a few times, which fixed the issue the other day when it came up, but it doesn't seem to be solving the issue. I have my Universal Audio Apollo 8 interface connected and on before the computer turns on as that's how it usually connects and works. Any fix on the Thunderbolt?

That screenshot is 100% normal. It just means Thunderbolt Bus has not been activated. Check the System Information --> PCI page instead.
