Several users have switched to the YOUBO card. Please see Notes 1 and 3 at the top of the Z490 Vision D thread:

Thank you @CaseySJ

it’s not available by the moment. I’ll look for it in other countries.

That’s my first Hackintosh.
In some months I’ll try to update to Big Sur.
Do you think it should be possible with that equipment (z390 designare etc)?

in that case, I’ve read I need OC instead of Clover.

if I migrate now to OC, do you think it can resolve the WiFi T919 issue?

thank you

Yes, it works -- please see this:

Currently only OpenCore can boot Big Sur because of substantial changes Apple has made to the manner in which kexts are injected. And only OpenCore can boot Catalina on Z490. It is a good time to begin learning and switching to OpenCore.

Switching to OpenCore will not resolve the WiFi issues, however. Plenty of people are experiencing those issues even with OpenCore.

I wonder who could be responsible for Amazon listing Z490 Vision D under frequently bought together with the YOUBO...
Hmm, I wonder who? ;)

MacPro7,1 is a good choice from what I've read. AppleIntelMCEReporter.kext MacProMemoryNotificationDisabler.kext may be needed. I've not used that SMBIOS personally so I cannot comment about better display management.

Hello,

I've been happily running this build since 2018. I'd like to update it with all the latest improvements discovered along the way, and also move from Clover to OpenCore. I've found the OpenCore Mini Guide, but wanted to know if it's worth the work now, or better to wait until the process is more stable?.

How has been the process and results for those that did the switch?
The switch was seamless and only took a few minutes for me. My system has been noticeably more stable since.
