After installing the internal splitter, it will not wake up from sleep, just black screen
try to mapping usb port to internal, but still cannot solve the issue, now just change the display-off time to 2hours to prevent the sleeping problem.

Still need to figure out what causing the screen not wake up
Does it also happen with the network card directly plugged into the header and no splitter?

directly plugged is fine. instead the 9 pin header splitter not work in 11.6.6 update, Bluetooth keyboard can be use in opencore boot menu and windows, while boot up to Big Sur 11.6.6, the spiltter only provide front usb panel, bluetooth not working after bootup. it show bluetooth not available, with grey icon

Everything fine with splitter in 11.6.5
Try direct plug to header, work fine
Using internal usb hub - not ok, only front panel works
try clear nvram, work fine but after shut down, not working again
Try fresh install 11.6.6, still the same issue
try usb mapping the header to internal - 255 , no hope, still bluetooth grey out

It believe to be software AHCI problem with internal usb hub , any suggestion to try out ?

Amazing deal at Newegg for a 3020 SFF with a 512GB SSD and 16GB of DDR3 ram. $120 for everything.
The SSD is worth at least $45 and the Ram $40. So for $35 you get the Core i5, motherboard, case and PSU.
It's difficult today to buy any good quality Mini-ITX or mATX case for under about $60 much less with a CPU, PSU and motherboard included. The seller even includes Wifi and a mouse and keyboard. A Windows 10 Pro license too. :thumbup:

The Newegg reviews for Skytech USA are a small sample size from a few disgruntled people. Look at the Amazon reviews for a better representation of their business.
