I don't use OC full time, but you could also try posting at the Insanely site, there is a OC thread there that's pretty active.......
Thank you!

Hey guys!

I'm reading a bit about OpenCore today, seems a bit confusing to set a proper OC EFI Folder from the ground up, especially the SSDT/DSDT section. Everyone seems to agree on the fact that OC will be in the future the de facto standard for hackintoshes, but I actually a pretty stable build right now with Clover. Do you guys think I should wait OC to get a bit more mature and easier or just dump Clover right now and make the jump?

I have the same mobo, could share my OC-efi folder if you want. I got Broadcom in slot-6 and Titan Ridge in slot-3. RX 5700 in slot-1.

Everything is working very well except that it wakes up instantly after sleep.
I haven't had the time to trying to solve debug it enough to solve it. Also, my rig is on 24/7 so no need for sleep anyway.

Haven't had a single crash though.

You're very kind! I got the Broadcom in slot 5 and no TB, Radeon VII in slot 1. a bunch of ssdts for all the mobo components and pcie devices. a proper radeon VII AGPMInjector kext, a proper mapped usb 15 port limited kext, a 18 core TSCAdjust kext etc.

Attached screens of my EFI subfolders.

I'm using MacPro7,1 SMBIOS with proper Serial numbers etc.

@Junologue, I have the same MB and have been contemplating the move to OC as well but like @pieropontra I have a very stable Clover build that is doing everything I want right now. If you would be willing to post your OC EFI folder, I would greatly appreciate it. I know moving to OC will be the future of hacks.

As for your immediate wake upon sleep, I had a similar issue that was caused by my custom USB kext. I had to change one of the ports to 255. Not sure if that's the case for you.

Sweet! Interesting regarding the Custom USB kext. I will look into that. And i’ll post my EFI tomorrow if i remember. Also interesting to see if you manage to keep a proper sleep after the move to OC. That would be a win win!

Care to share your USB kext?
I haven’t had the time to send the EFI yet, will do ASAP!

Ok, tried a bit with OC SSDT DSDT stuff... I'm actually unable to handle this. I think I'll stick with my solid Clover EFI for now, I'll wait OC to be more polished and streamlined I think. Please anybody feel free to comment on this.

Here you go. I started with KGP's version and then modified it to suit my needs. I don't use a lot of USB ports, so I can't recall which ones I turned off. I can dig back into this if you need more info. I believe the manual for our MB has a good description of which ports are which.
