Hi @CaseySJ, is there an modified NVM 33 for the GC-Titan Ridge PCI card? So far I could only find the modified NVM 23 in your Post #16,393. Have I missed something there or can I also use the NVM 33, which was patched for the Deignare?

There is not a 33 for the GC-Titain Ridge but you can use the 33 for the Designare! I have not see any adverse effects and I have been using it for around 2 months.

Insane =D

I don't know how power hungry the RX 580 is... I know that my system with an overclocked Vega 56 can push total system power draw to approx 500W. On the other hand, my other system with Radeon VII never even reaches 400W...

Try disabling XMP in BIOS and config.plist. Then test system stability.

We use NVM 33 for Designare Z390 and cross-pollinate that into the GC-Titan Ridge. Don't ask me why! That hare-brained scheme was cooked up by some true mad scientists lurking around here. :)

Has anybody been able to play a boot chime through their monitor over DisplayPort?

P.S. @CaseySJ my Watch Unlock feature miraculously works now after updating OC from 0.5.7 to 0.5.8. I was on the NDK fork, now on the main one (just to try out OpenCanopy... the scaling needs to be fixed, and the tools are all labeled 'Tool', so I'm sticking with the Builtin picker for now haha). Not sure how that could have fixed it, but good to know for the future I guess.
Oh yes, there's still room to improve the OpenCore config.plist. I'll post another version later today.

The Thunderbolt firmware chip is located on the back side of Designare Z390 motherboard. Please see these pictures:

This actually indicates that native NVRAM is not working. In addition to unlocking MSR 0xE2 we need to install SSDT-NVRAM.aml and remove EmuVariableUefi.efi. But most likely MSR 0xE2 might still be locked (if it return 0x01 it is locked).

I feel very embarrassed, I had failed unlocking the MSR 0xE2…
