I'll talk with hackashaq about possibly adding this to post #1 as well as the USB mini guide. Thanks for helping out, much appreciated.
Cheers, that would be great. I suppose the situation is a little bit convoluted since the guide is about High Sierra but a lot of the recent support has been evolving around Mojave. This is obviously the case in regard to the USB configuration. When it comes to configuring the iGPU in headless mode, I am a little bit confused about how @HackaShaq got acceleration and Quick Sync working correctly with iMac 14.2 SMBIOS and iGPU disabled. It didn't work for me with either iMac 14.2 or 18.3 until I configured the iGPU in headless mode. I doubt that High Sierra vs. Mojave makes a difference here, but who knows.

This is why I had hoped jb007 would be able to post a new Mojave guide. He has more important matters to attend to in his personal life now. I'm certain that the USB information applies to either HS or Mojave. Hopefully the OP will have some time to check in here and help fill in the missing pieces.

Here. I've put in the links plus a couple extra useful links from the TonyMac site
You can post direct links to these so that others can find them easily with one click. For example, here's the direct link to post #1198 by hackmymac:

View attachment 388075
Then you just copy the whole URL and it links directly to that post. So as you can see above, post #1198 is actually 1874856 on page 120 of this guide.
Fixed. See https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/success-gigabyte-z370-gaming-7-intel-core-i7-8700k-rx-580-2x-dell-p2715q-4k-60hz.252989/page-163#post-1911143 Fixed again... It's shorter...

Guys can you see the all the fans speed in HWmonitor? I can see only one of my fans.
Hi Jim, try these alternative drivers in your /L/E folder and replace the existing HWMonitor files with these.
From memory, as I'm not at my hack ATM, these will/should give you AMD temp and fan speeds.

Others have used Gaming 5 with no issues that I'm aware off. Just be aware that using the iGPU UHD 630 can be troublesome. Try to use a AMD Radeon RX580. NVIDIA cards have no drivers if you are going to use Mojave.
