    Comments
    Decided it was time to upgrade my old Z97 / i5 / GTX 760 2GB system to something more modern.

    Installation

    Followed @muk546, @shark7760 & @monsterz excellent build guides, which the following worked for me...

    BIOS
    (upgraded version F7 first)
    1. Save & Exit → Load Optimized Defaults
    2. M.I.T. → Advanced Memory Settings Extreme Memory Profile(X.M.P.) : Profile 1
    3. BIOS → Fast Boot : Disabled
    4. BIOSCMS Support: Disabled
    5. BIOS → LAN PXE Boot Option ROM : Disabled
    6. BIOS → Storage Boot Option Control : UEFI
    7. Peripherals → Super IO Configuration → Serial Port : Disabled
    8. Peripherals → USB Configuration → XHCI Hand-off : Enabled
    9. Chipset → Vt-d : Disabled

    MultiBeast Settings

    1. Quick Start > Clover UEFI Boot Mode
    2. Drivers > Audio > Realtek ALCxxx > ALC1220 *
    3. Drivers > Misc > FakeSMC Drivers > Network > Intel > IntelMausiEthernet v2.4.0
    4. Drivers > USB > Increase Max Port Limit 200 Series
    5. Customize > System Definitions > iMac > iMac 18,2 / 14,2 **
    * could not get sound to work when following any of the build guides, don't know if its because I was starting from 10.13.6, the only way to get sound working for me was to use install the latest version of AppleALC.kext and Lilu.kext then run the latest version of audio_cloverALC-130_v0.5.command, now I having working sound.

    ** as per Stork's Z370 Hero X build, when using iMac 18,2 the DP port stopped working on the RX580, so switched back to 14,2 and all is OK.


    I had to use the 10.13.6 USB Patch to get my USB 3.0 ports working..
    https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...h-for-high-sierra.226072/page-12#post-1755102


    What Works

    - RX580 OOB (was a better experience installing mac os than using a GTX 760, and seems smother while using the system as well)
    - All USB Ports
    - Audio from rear speaker port on Z370 Board
    - Ethernet
    - both NVMe PCIe SSD's



    Update 1: - August 2018

    • Updated BIOS to Version F8, re-entered settings again - No problems found so far.
    • Found slight blue tint around text when using DisplayPort on the RX580, problem seems to have gone when using a HDMI cable, tested DP in windows and ubuntu and I don't have the problem so would seem to be a driver problem, but happy using HDMI as I only use 1 monitor.
    • Swapped out the H80i v2 for a CoolerMaster Evo 212 and the Corsair 400Q case with a CoolerMaster H500, the H500 provides better case cooling as the RX580 seems to run a bit hotter than my old GTX760.
    • All the usb 2.0 and 3.0 ports seem to work, with 3.0 ports running at correct speed, but under USB Device Tree, only getting USB 3.0 Bus and 3.1 Bus, No 2.0 Bus....
    • Updated Lilu.kext to v1.2.6, AppleALC.kext to v1.3.1 & Clover_v2.4k_r4630

    Bless your soul. I've spent over a month trying to get audio to work for headphone jack. Followed audio_cloverALC-130.command and worked like a charm! :thumbup: Thanks for sharing!

    Have you had any issues with USB 3.0 USBs or hard drives? I try to connect my external hard drive to the machine and it won't get recognized.
    Did you have the same issue? Any resolution?

    Thank you so much! I have installed 10.13.6 successful. But I can't use the USB 3.0. I viewed your post link about USB 3.0, but I don't know where to input the code...could you please tell me where to input the code ?

    Download a text editor for code, like PyCharm or Sublime:

    Sublime Build 3176
    or
    PyCharm - Download the Community version (right side) as it's free.

    Now get to your config.plist file through Clover Configurator
    • Right click config.plist and open with either Sublime or PyCharm (whichever you downloaded)
    • press 'command + F' to search the code for "KextsToPatch" to take you to the section Screen Shot 2018-08-12 at 11.13.09 PM.png
    • Copy and paste the code from #115 after <array>
    • Screen Shot 2018-08-12 at 11.16.51 PM.png
    *Note in the image, that's not the actual code from the link, I was just showing where to place it

    No issues yet with any USB 3.0 drives, did you perform the 10.13.6 USB patch ?

    All I did was open config.plist in Clover Config, go into text mode, scroll down to the KextsToPatch section, and at the bottom add the code, then perform a Synchronize at the bottom of the window to confirm all is ok, reboot your machine and your good to go.
