Glad I'm not the only one. Wonder if it's a similar issue with forcing ASMedia kexts to load, maybe we have to load Broadcom kexts too?

I have the BCM943602CDP which is the most compatible and latest Wifi/BT module we can have and it was rock solid in Catalina, but odd and uneven in terms of performance in Big Sur.

BCM943602CDP working fine here on 11.3 Public Beta 3. Although I don't use AirDrop a whole lot

Ok, that's definitely a beautiful cute Mac Pro wannabe ahahah!

Full custom air cooling here, Full Noctua stuff, 400€ for heatsinks and fans but... oh boy it's dead silent! An air-cooling riot in a water-cooling world!

Temps are ok 95° max for OC 9980XE ranging from 5.0 Ghz on 2 cores to 4.2 Ghz on 18 cores with 3/6 AVX/512 offsets. GPU is ok at stock clocks/volts within range of expected temps.

(My AirDrop is ok)

Is that a turbine? ha

Try not to let the 9980XE hit that high for temps. It should be 84c as per Intel Ark page. You will decrease the life span of the CPU. Set a 84c thermal throttle limit in the BIOS. It will thermal throttle but at least stay within the safe limits.

And those are pretty high OC settings for an air cooler. And also you have the Prime Deluxe Rev 1? Those didn't even have proper VRM cooling so you will decrease the life span of the mosfets too.

Yeah I can teach Asus how to build super ugly super fat super cool STRIX cards ahahah

I usually run my CPU at stock clocks, I switch on OC only when I need to flex and show off ahahah

That is called the retention plate and yes it's required. It needs to be fairly tight and secure to keep the GPU core attached to the heatsink.
