Ok I agree : why not to create a new thread and share links to older threads as reminder to start more clearly the way to Big Sur as you suggested.
Just help me get started and I will continue.

Yeah, just refer to post 1. I think that should be fine

I'm in! just notice me the new thread.

BTW, the big question is... @djlild7hina why are you selling your X299 build? What are you buyin next???

Spending a lot of time with supporting these threads and debugging. Probably going to go with arm whenever it comes out.


Yep think that's it lol

Given the fact that if Big Sur boots then 99% older macos will boot too and given the fact that OpenCore will probablt become the defacto standard for hacks, I vote for "Intel HEDT X299 OpenCore Support".

In a couple of years everyone will be switched to Apple genuine. I said this yesterday too and I bet a penny today!

We may have to be specific to ASUS since gigabyte and other boards have slightly different setups and there's already a gigabyte thread. If we do have one main thread, i'll request the others to be closed so info isn't spread out everywhere.

OK so I should start with ASUS X299 SUPPORT

Thanks for starting the thread. I added information to post 3 with pretty much the info from post 1 here. Also added links to previous threads and thunderbolt patching information.

I am still having trouble with crashes and random reboots on my X299 Sage 10G Catalina OpenCore system. I was running it with (not overclocked) 64 GB of 2400 mhz memory, which is way under the speed it will accept. The memory checked out fine with MemTest, so I decided to go ahead and upgrade the memory to see if that might help. So I got Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB Memory, 64GB running rated at 3466mhz. I installed it without making any changes to my BIOS settings. When I installed it, it booted up through to the BIOS Setup, where it immediately complained of the CPU having a 99 degree Celsius temperature (overheating). Then, I guessed it crossed the 100 edge mark and shutdown. This memory, I just noticed, shows to be compatible with the X299 Sage 10G in the 3200mhz and the 3600mhz speeds. Is the 3466 MHz speed causing my overheats? Is there a BIOS setting that could help?

Here’s what some of the bios settings look like if that helps (these are the original settings when I have the 2400 MHz memory):

You can check your settings on this post, Section bios X299 configuration : #1
