I have the same board but with 3770S CPU and Gigabyte GTX960 GPU. I have installed 2 different PCIx cards with Apple native bluetooth cards. The cards I have tried are:
Card 1. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00MBP25UK/?tag=tonymacx86-21,
with BCM943602CS BT card.
Card 2. Fenvi FV-T919. This was the Tonymacx86 recommended one at the time.
However, the BT is not recognised on either card in the OS.
I have plugged it into both F_USB1 and F_USB2.
The only way that I can get the BT on Card 1 to work is to connect the board to a USB 2/3 port of the back panel, or the front USB3 panel. I have also tried a USB3 header to USB3 socket adapter. However, in each case I get that dreaded instant awake from sleep problem.
NB. Both cards work flawlessness on my backup hack H67N-USB3-B3/i3570K, so they clearly work.
1. Using F_USB1 and F_USB2 it seems that the ports are not active. Is there a BIOS setting and/or OS setting that I need to configure to make these active?
2. Have you suffered from the dreaded instant awake from sleep problem? If so, how did you fix it?
A solution to either, or both, of these questions would be great.
Hi, sorry been struggling with High Sierra issues affecting sleep and using a raid 0 set up... anyway...
1. there is a legacy USB set up in the bios which needs to be enable, however F_USB1 and F_USB1 should work, check by linking them to your case usb leads and if these work then they work. My motherboard did not like the bluetooth link to either of those and I had to link it to one of the USB3 headers on the motherboard. If this is not working for you it maybe an issue with the DSDT not seeing or reporting USB ports correctly. It maybe that you also need to increase the port limit for USB3 due to the limitations of macOS. I'm sure there are plenty of discussions on this topic here.
I would trouble shoot by disconnecting all USB and just attach the wifi card and bluetooth module and see if it detected in macOS and not being interfered with by other devices first. I believe I have same card as card 1 which you have mentioned.
2. I did not suffer from any wake issues at all within Sierra, however now I've upgraded to high Sierra my system wakes after 4 minutes of sleep due to GLAN issues and other than switching off wake on LAN I cannot prevent this. Sadly I need wake on Lan for various reasons and so it is not an option for me.
Sometimes the only way to resolve these issues is to set the machine up from fresh as if you just built it again as this will remove any incorrect patches, tick boxes, bios entries, config entries and other such things which could be causing problems in the back ground...
