I use opencore 0.5.9. It is not as hard as it seems on the guide. The key to stability is proper USB mapping and SSDTs. My system actually has been more stable than my 2016 MBP. But, if you already have a working Clover configuration, it will be a hassle to switch over.

Would you guys mind telling me what settings you're running (if you're on a Z390)? Possible I've got a dodgy 9900K, rather than a dodgy motherboard...

CPU Upgrade - Default
Enhanced Multi-Core - Enabled (although, up until just recently, it was set to disabled)
XMP - Disabled

I used to have XMP and CPU Upgrade enabled, but...opted to disable them to try to see if they caused the issue. I think the system does indeed feel more stable with them disabled/defaulted, but...hard to tell. I still haven't seen any issues for over a week now.

Either way, I don't think you have a dodge 9900k. I saw the exact same behavior before I upgraded to a 9900K processor. If anything, I would suspect a board problem over a processor problem, but... I'm still not convinced it's a 'bad board'. I've seen the same issue across multiple processors and motherboards now.

Have you tested HEVC encoding?
Using clip from the the link you posted, my results are as follows in AME. Note that I have used RX 580.

H264
IQSV - 00:29
VCE - 00:32

H265
IQSV - 01:18
VCE - 00:43

I will do a quick test when I get home with HEVC. The issue with Adobe is that with the release of 14.2, Premiere’s encoding in Windows 10 has dramatically improved (3-4x). But, the Mac version hasn’t caught up yet and I see only about 10% improvement. I am hoping Adobe will fix this soon. Will update the result with HEVC soon.

Please ask a friend or co-worker to translate from your native language to English. I cannot understand your post.

I stand corrected then! Did you get headless mode working on OC or Clover? I'd try iMac19,1 on my machine if there's an easy way

UPDATE: Wait no I tested it just now: on iMac19,1 with iGPU enabled and headless mode, I get 38 seconds, tested it twice. Reran with iMacPro1,1 w/o iGPU and I get 34 seconds. This is strange....

Do you have Hackintool to conform if your hardware encoding is fully supported? I also ran and posted my HEVC result. Give it a go and see what kind of performance you get in Resolve.
