I was just using this EFI on my MSI Z690-A pro on Monterey and it works just fine. Just edit SMBIOS to add your own serial number and whatever green flags depending on your GPU.Unfortunately, my MSI Z690-A Pro can't load with this two EFIs: Monterey, Install Monterey and Recovery.
I tried with HT off.
I think the CPUDATA frequency vector is not needed on iMac. I just use CPUFRIENDFRIEND to generate those. I don't remember anything special on MSI board other than making sure CFGLOCK is disabled.
Read the low reviews for that Amazon link and the stories give reasons to think this make of drive may subject buyer to bin-sort (luck of draw) problems and maybe controllers that are sub-optimal.For anyone who needs a new pcie 4.0 m.2 : XPG 2TB GAMMIX S70 Blade - Works with Playstation 5, PCIe Gen4 M.2 2280 Internal Gaming SSD Up to 7,400 MB/s (AGAMMIXS70B-2T-CS) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B093DNV47J/?tag=tonymacx86com-20
This seems like a good drive although I am just using it for windows gaming at the moment . Still using my xpg8200 for macOS.
Please set the AJA test file size to a custom value of a 100G, or more, so it can get its legs under it. So far this demos that M.2 slot lanes run in tandem at PCIe3 speeds. This can be achieved on years old kit.Today after a long time I managed to run Macos. It seems to me that something was wrong with Nvram.
I bought 3 SSD 2TB M.2 PCIE NVME 4.0 x4.

Way back in day a company called OCZ wrecked their business over sketchy SSD designs that really hurt some users. So buying new storage text from bargain bin depends on solid designs with proven endurance. That can't yet be said of commodities NVMe.
Note that the gamer is the least rigorous target market for workload expectations and reliability. Gaming users typically know little about computing, have been conditioned to expect to have their data thrown away by tweaks and lore as they straining for bragging rights, and data loss is all too often due to the machinations of the game industry, in a market that thrives on churn and benefits from user re-purchase of content.
