Thanks again!
BTW Which ITX motherboard can be perfectly used with Thunderbolt 3 hot plug?
I use MSI Z590i Unify which has 2 TB ports with Maple Ridge. I'm using @CaseySJ SSDT and it works great!

@CaseySJ I also have another issue with an MSI monitor 32" at 144Hz; when I switched to 144Hz, the screen went black and didn't refresh back to 60Hz, so I needed to reconnect the oldest monitor.
What can I do? Do I need any sort of hack/patch to make it work?

I also noticed that any setup from system preferences on the monitor acted weird, such as the night switch didn't work; any time I tried to make it warmer, the MSI monitor wanted to make it bright/white.

I would like to answer your question, but I still didn't find a way to connect the second monitor; since I reconnected it as the first monitor, so first I should solve the 144Hz issue. I would appreciate your help. Thanks

(I want to remind you that my graphic card is a Gigabyte RX 560 OC 4GB if that info is needed)
@CaseySJ I can't find any solution to hack OpenCore to use a monitor at 144Hz. The funny thing is that I can't even refresh it and go back to normal at 60Hz, so now the monitor is useless. :cry:

This is a macOS issue rather than an OpenCore issue. We can download and try SwitchResX, which has a 30-day trial period.

I will do this and report back. It seems like I got through the install screen, no reboot since oddly enough.
I think everything is running as it should be. Perhaps the reinstall helped (I tried another USB port at the back and the installation went smooth. It's running about a day now without reboots and problems.

Thanks so far!

@CaseySJ, oh really? So nothing to do with Hackintosh :) The funny thing is that it not only can't switch back to 60Hz, but it also does not allow me to use that monitor anymore. Anyways, I will try SwitchResX. Thanks

Not sure if anyone is interested, but I am using the latest CaseySJ Opencore 0.7.8 settings for the Z390 Designare with i7-8700k and RX560 (64GB) and just upgraded to 11.6.6. Everything seems to be normal AFAIK. Thanks CaseySJ and other fellows that helped me get here!

Is my 6900XT performance normal?

Thanks to @CaseySJ and @joostiphone, I did a fresh install of Monterey 12.4 with great success. I used CaseySJ's OpenCore 0.7.8, then upgraded to 0.8.0. My system is a Z390 with i9-9900K and 32GB of 3000Mhz RAM. I also changed the GPU from Vega64 to 6900XT. I've attached my System Info and the Benchmarks.

My Vega64 had Geekbench5's Metal score of ~63,000 and I was thinking the 6900XT would be ~180,000-200,000 in Metal but I only got ~150,000. Also, OpenCL score for my 6900XT is ~120,000.

Is ~150,000 a normal Metal score for 6900XT? Am I delusional in expecting it to be around ~180,000-200,000 (I thought I saw these numbers from someone else benchmarks)? Is my system bottlenecked somewhere for the 6900XT?

Appreciate any insights. Thanks all!
