@lele90 thank you! Your EFI is the only that works for me.
I have an Asus Apex XI Z390 with latest bios, i9-9900K 3,6@4,8mhz on all cores, 16gb Patriot DDR4 4400@4600mhz C18, Powercolor 5700XT Liquid Devil and 3x Samsung 970 Evo Plus 1Tb.
I only miss onboard intel wlan/bt 5.0 and my Soundblaster Creative AE-7.
Thank you again.

Very strange, I've got almost EVERY piece of hardware like you @lele90 and my GeekBench is way below yours.

I even made a post about this here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/i9-9900k-asus-z390-i-gaming-rx-5600-xt-poor-performance.297397/

What's the possible reason for this ?

I tried and played with your and ModMike's EFIs and now I'm on his OpenCore one, there's like 5% improvement on OC over Clover but nothing in the range of 30k score for multithreading.

Very odd.

No, really, that's plain stupid, I wasted a few hours on this today.

I had no idea about this difference between Geekbench 4 and 5 ...


Oh man :crazy:. Thanks @mattew82 !

No problem.
In any case, if this can help, under Geekbench 5.x with my i9-9900k overclocked @ 4.8GHz, I score 1265 on single core and 9010 on multi. Using Clover and OC, too.
Instead, if you have a RX 5700 XT, I suggest you to use Radeon Boost kext because it improves of 30% the benchmarks with OpenGL and Metal.

Hey, guys! I'm just posting my WiFi card setup, as it might help others visualise how they might install a Broadcom card in the z390-i. I was thinking about posting a build log but my EFI is identical to lele90's, and I haven't enough time to tinker yet. Air Drop and iMessage work, haven't tested continuity yet, but a little safari icon did pop up when I was using my iPhone!
