DESIGNARE-Z390-NVM33-Elias64Fr.bin and designare_z390_tb3_rom_1-Elias64Fr-Mod.bin have the same checksum, so they’re identical, right?

Ok glad to know that.
Renamed the RX 580 to AMD Rx 580 and Intel UHD 630 to UHD 630.
Now in my VideoProc settings AMD RX 580 is shown with H.264 and HEVC accelerations enabled....thanks a lot for your guiding.
I would like to help this site's work by donating what i can, Where can i do so?.
Glad it worked! You're welcome to contribute by clicking the Contribute button at the very top left of the web page.

This could be true for the G602 mouse, but the Apple mouse is connected via Bluetooth. :think:

My keyboard is only connected via Bluetooth and of course the Apple mouse is connected too. (there is no other way).

Could it be the Bluetooth card (Fenvi)?
According to @rj510, both WiFi and Bluetooth performance of the Fenvi FV-T919 might be improved if we use these additional kexts:
  • BrcmPatchRAM3.kext
  • BrcmBluetoothInjector.kext
  • AirportBrcmFixup.kext
  • BT4LEContinuityFixup.kext
  • BrcmFirmwareData.kext
Attached ZIP contains all five. If you'd like to try this, simply copy all kexts to CLOVER/kexts/Other and reboot.

To make life more complicated. :)

Native NVRAM is the way to go. Our aim is to make this build as reasonably close to a real Mac as possible. The NVRAM guide explains some of the specific reasons why we should do this.

I see your point. But technically I could run catalina without it?

I had issues with unlocking MSR, I thought BIOS was not that stable anymore. Once it blocked completely, and I needed to reflash it...You never had such issues?

Both of my Designare Z390 systems have been problem-free in nearly all respects. Never had an issue after unlocking MSR 0xE2.

Upgrading to 10.15.4 may result in a “Bless” error in which the 10.15.4 installer is unable to select a startup disk. If this happens, you’ll have two extra or leftover macOS Install boot volumes in Clover Boot Menu. You can try without unlocking MSR 0xE2.

I had an issue this morning that may apply to the Z390 Designare build. (I'm using a similar mobo, the GB Z390 Aorus Xtreme Waterforce.) The TB chip was flashed with the modified Aorus Xtreme firmware. MSR is unlocked; NVRAM is working. Bootloader is OC.

I had no issues using a TB drive when testing this new build. Now that the rig seems stable, I connected it to a CalDigit TB dock and started noticing panic re-boots on shutdown (happened with both Mojave 10.14.6 and Catalina 10.15.4). Initially, I thought it was due to the latest changes in OC V057, but it was problem with a BIOS setting.

The panic re-boots only occurred when the dock was connected; when disconnected, there was no panic re-boot on shutdown.

On a BIOS re-set, I'd left "Wake From Tunderbolt(TM) Devices" enabled. If this is enabled and the dock is connected, there are panic re-boots. Once this setting was disabled, the panic re-boots stopped and the dock could be left connected.

Again, I don't know if this applies to the Z390 Designare, but if it does, hopefully the info will save time for someone else.

I came to upgrade to Catalina 10.15.4, and I updated to clover r5109 as that was the latest, and I think it broke my system, or maybe it was something else I did.
After installing, on r5107 it worked fine.
I was editing my config.plist to take out the port limit patches as I had them enabled still with an SSDT.
I replaced my SSDT V7 which had one port disabled, to the original one in your post.
I updated to r5109, and my system stopped working. Never seen this kind of error before, so I wasn't sure where to start.
I attached my config.plist and an image of all my kexts, patched, drivers files
Any help is grateful
