In my experience, Z390 is much more of a pain to Hackintosh. Again, I'd happily sacrifice the improved VRM to go back to Z370 if my Radeon VII didn't have the wake issue.I'm thinking about getting the VII and liquid cooling it soon, as I'm liquid cooling my 9900k next week anyway. Hopefully won't run into the same z390 issues.
I believe with your board u could go higher than 5.2 btw, the VRM setup is extremely better than the XI hero board i have. Especially being able to achieve 5.2 at 1.35 vcore. I require 1.39 vcore at 7LLC (max 8 on my board) for a stable 5.2 all core, and 1.40 for 6 core 5.3/all core 5.2 0 AVX. could you try 5.3 at 1.4-1.415 vcore and let me know the results. This will let me know if it's my vrms or not.
I already went back to 5GHz because I want everything to run cooler since my system is turned on 24/7. I only tried 5.2GHz to see if it were possible and didn't want to push it to such extremes as 5.3GHz.
I always run with no AVX offset. When I tried setting an offset in the past, I found that macOS would only run the CPU at (overclock speed - AVX offset) and never get to the overclock speed. For example, if I set 5.1GHz with -1 AVX offset, macOS would only ever run the CPU at 5GHz and never 5.1GHz.
