#2534170 Success with High Sierra on i9-7900x X299 GA Aorus 9, Radeon Vega

Posted by maleorderbride on 13 November 2017 - 08:12 PM

Yes me too, but on the Vega anyway, the 10.13.2 has fixed that. Also my benchmarks are 20 to 30% better. What do you get in Luxmark in 10.13.2 with a single frontier edition?  What approach did you use to make sound work properly? I tried the kexts out of your EFI Folder, Toleda and Apple ALC but I'm missing something. VoodooHDA that you install like a package gives me horrible sound with a "fizz". Thanks in advance! You need Clover DSDT patches in addition to AppleALC--rename CAVS->HDEF & PC00->PCI0 (or do it manually in an SSDT or DSDT). You could find this out on your own by dumping your tables into Clover and looking at the DSDT, and then searching for the address always associated with audio and noticing it is no longer at ALZA (or, of course, HDEF).

Thanks Surf! I ordered that same delidding kit.  Yep, I have good looking speedstep, although it only goes down to 1.2GHz on idle rather than 700MHz I think it is capable of. Have you managed lower idles? Intel Power Gadget reports ~30W at idle, which is about twice what I would like to see.

I need little help. I instaled 10.13.1 on my custom machine: gigabyte X299 aorus gaming 3, i7 7820X, GTX 980Ti. I used clover from first page of this post. Problem is: when I played video without audio, works fine. When I played audio file, works. fine. When I played video with audio, machine crashes. Any idea?  Do you have the onboard audio working?Is your CPU at stock speeds?

#2522962 Benefits/Advantages of High Sierra vs Sierra

Posted by maleorderbride on 26 October 2017 - 05:48 PM

What speed increase? Historically newer OS'es run slower on the same hardware. 10.6 is still the fastest OS, obviously has little in the way of hardware support. APFS also boots slower as far as I have seen versus HFS+, but presumably it will mature. APFS does have other advantages though. Can't one use APFS in 10.12.6 though?  Since HS doesn't bring any new hardware support (yet), I can't say it offers any concrete advantages. As newer Mac models come out and bring more vanilla support to new hardware then that will be an advantage. Oh, 10.13 brings Vega to the table, right? I guess there is that.

Pike says he added the new CPUs to PrGen--want to see if you can make a proper SSDT surf?

I'm stuck at this screen. If anybody can offer a little bit of guidance, please. I'm thinking of putting a guide together for X299 users. Here's a quick outline of my system:i7-7800X Water CooledASUS X299 Prime-A MBNVidia GTX 1070 and/or Radeon R9-280X (tried with each one and got stuck in the same place)32 GB DDR4 G.Skills Ripjaws 3200MHZ850W Power Supply I tried each and every one of the tips given in this thread to no avail. Disable any serial ports.

Yes, you need to delete all of the sensors in your Plugins folder in FakeSMC.

Why not just add an SSDT to set the GPU to GFX1?

Posted by maleorderbride on 11 January 2017 - 11:13 PM

Hi. I have made a SSDT patch with GFX1. maybe i have missed someting? Its succesfully loaded to. Attached IOReg, log and EFI files. UPDATE:I switched to HDMI and now its working. But I need to replug the hdmi cable when the system has booted. Yea, GFX1 looks fine. What does Nvidia Driver Manager report? Try turning off web driver within it, then restarting with nv_disable=1 and turning it back on.Also, add EMUVariable to your Clover kexts if NVRAM is not persistent in your board. That will help the Nvidia Driver Manager reflect the real state of things. Although, if HDMI works and the System Info says you have a 980 Ti (or whatever model) then it doesn't sound like a driver issue. In my experience, all my 9xx cards have all ports working automatically. No work to be done. Perhaps your display is part of your problem?

  I have a 980 Ti and I can change resolution and refresh rate with the latest driver in 10.12.2. I do however see an annoying message about about Nvidia Driver Manager being unable to open from time to time.  Definitely not the best release from Nvidia, but no real issues that I have found.   I have 2x EVGA GTX 980 Ti Classifieds with both nvda_drv=1 and NvidiaWeb=True set. I imagine your black screen difficulties are related more to your 75Mhz manual setting. Did you try the pixel clock unlocked in case it is a bandwidth problem? Are you going to a 4K display? Hey guys! Have installed OS X on a new USB Drive now. ALL went good until i installed the nvidia WebDrivers.The exact same EFI setup works yesterday. So i dunno whats wrong now. I installed it again because i messed up the system. Black screen to death! I have attached my files here. Can some one look in to it and see whats wrong? :/ Se my specs in the signature. Ma...

Core i7 5930k   By the way, the Nvidia web driver is super sketchy. If you change the resolution/refresh rate, it'll black screen. If you change Nvidiaweb=true, it'll either black screen at boot or load up an "unsupported" gfx card @ 1280x1024p with terrible performance. Recommend anyone looking to upgrade to 10.12.2, to hold off until the web drivers becomes more stable. I have a 980 Ti and I can change resolution and refresh rate with the latest driver in 10.12.2.

I'll simplify my answer: Xeon => traini7 => car A Xeon can carry a lot of people, at a relatively quick speed, over long distances, and be incredibly reliable. An i7 can carry some amount of people, at an extremely quick speed, over short-medium distances, and be relatively reliable. In other words, more people are buying cars than buying trains. They only need to carry some amount of people over short distances with the advantage of faster speeds. Also, cars are more wide-spread/compatible than trains when it comes to finding parts. This is nonsense. A CPU is a CPU. I suggest you compare real world performance and differences instead of these odd analogies. Most people are fine with an i7 because they would not benefit very much from the extreme parallelization that comes with many cores. If use the CC suite, then an 6-core or an 8-core with a high frequency is a great choice. If you game, then a quad core is plenty. However, if you u...

I found this:Renaming H000 to GFX1 works on the Deluxe (as does using DSDT patches in clover, which avoids an SSDT entirely for this), but neither works on my X99-E WS as H000 no longer is the device the displays come off of. Instead, on the X99-E WS, there is an additional device called "pci-bridge@10" which is not present in the DSDT, nor in any additional ACPI dumps that I could find.Edit: I fixed this. I added another device with ADR 0x00100000 to the SSDT, then added GFX1 to it.I do not understand, however, how should I rewrite SSDT-BR3A to adapt to this situation... I see that you are quoting me ;) See below for what I meant. This is kind of a fragile method though as adding or removing PCI-e devices can shift the addresses and break the GFX1 injection. Scope (_SB.PCI0.BR3A)    {        Device (PCIA)        {            Name (_ADR, Zero)  // _ADR: Address       ...

Its come like this What edits do you make to DSDT in total? What effect do they have?  Why not add this SMC device via SSDT? It seems easier and would be compatible with any motherboard then.

Just a note: Still getting random (really, really, random) restarts. I can idle for hours... no problem. I can watch videos for hours... no problem. I randomly boot into the OS and 5 minutes later it'll restart.   Switching back to OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi. Been using that for my primary and thankfully no issues... so hopefully that'll cure the random reboots I'm having on my test bench. This has been present in X99 (mostly Haswell-E/P, I believe) since 10.10.3. You should probably go back and edit your previous posts that have attached files and make clear that your EFI folder or settings are not actually stable.  My understanding is that is related to MSR's triggering the reboots, so look to AppleIntelInfo and start making changes there. I have zeroed out 0x1AA along with the patched 0xE2 and I think that catches most of the restarts. I also have EIST disabled and Intel Adapter Thermal Monitor disabled. Last week i had several freezes after installing...
