  1. I did a similar build. You might want to think about the i5-8600k CPU instead of the i5-8500.


    It's not much more of a price difference but it's faster off the bat plus you would be able to be safely overclock it with the motherboard you're looking at and it would be MUCH faster for a little extra money. As far as a CPU cooler goes for an overclockable CPU, I've used the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO... cheap and keeps it cool.


    Other than that, the ram you are looking at is 2000MHz speed... the Z370 motherboard can take

    DDR4-2133 / 2400 / 2666 / 2800 / 3000 / 3200 / 3300 / 3333 / 3400 / 3466 / 3600 / 3666 / 3733 / 3800 / 3866 / 4000 / 4133


    If you can find faster ram that stays in your budget that would be better also.


    Hopefully someone else will chime in as well.

    Trial and error, try without, see what happens, been a while since I was legacy ;)


    Thanks again STLVNUB! I just got home and took out OSXAptioFix and crossed my fingers... it still reboots on wake.


    I was peeking at my drivers64UEFI and drivers64 folders thinking what to remove or do I need to add another driver????? Wish I knew more about this stuff!!!


    If someone can take a look at my IOreg files below and point me in the right direction I would be so thankful. I'm so close, but reboot on sleep is my only issue.

    What drivers you have for Clover

    I find that AptioFixDrv.efi and AptioMemoryFix.efi works and AptioFixDrv3.efi breaks wake i.e reboots.

    May be whats happening here...


    Thank you STLVNUB I am using Legacy boot on this machine and the only drivers I used are:






    Should I try to use AptioFixDrv.efi and AptioMemoryFix.ef? If so should I not use OSXAptioFixDrv-64? Or if you can let me know what drivers you would use that would be great! I am far from an expert on this but I love learning.


    I appreciate your and everybody else's help! :)

    Did you try to remove the sleep image file ?

    sudo pmset -a hibernatefile /dev/null
    sudo rm -f /var/vm/sleepimage


    Thank you Hervé... I just tried it but unfortunately it still reboots when I wake it from sleep. :(


    I was hoping that was the magic fix.

  5. I installed High Sierra 10.13.6 and EVERYTHING is working beautifully EXCEPT sleep. The machine goes to sleep fine but when it wakes it reboots. I've been searching for a fix for days now so I thought I would see if someone here can help.


    I had Sierra 10.12 and sleep was fine, but something in High Sierra doesn't like waking up. :(


    I attached my IOreg (RunMe) files below. Any help would be great!!!

    Okay. so back to trying to solve the No Video after wake from sleep problem. One card is working with a 790 Sierra Install, the other install was Yosemite on an Optiplex 780 that never had El Capitan on it. 


    These Video cards were bought a little over a year apart, but this is basically what I have. Sapphire Radeon HD5450, 1GB, DDR3.






    Okay, so after going nuts trying different DSDT's and settings in Clover, I wondered, could the cards not be 100% identical?


    So I took the Video Card from the 780 that had no video after wake from sleep in Sierra, and swapped it with the card in the 790 that had video after waking from sleep.


    Booted up the 790, put the computer into sleep, then woke it up and.... No Video! Okay, tried it a couple more times, and after waking from sleep, no video. So the cards are different!


    Okay, so what is the difference? I switched over to my Windows 10 partition, and used Gpuz to take a look at the cards.


    Here is the card that has video when waking from sleep:





    Shut down, swap cards, reboot. Here is the card that does not have video when waking from sleep:






    Notice any difference? The bios version is different! Hmmm, could it be that simple? 


    Okay, so I used ATI Winflash, and pulled off a copy of the bios from the working card. Then swapped cards, rebooted into Windows 10,


    saved a copy of the bios from the card that didn't have video after waking from sleep, and now flashed it with the bios from the card that was working.


    Okay, now I rebooted into my Sierra partition on my Optiplex 790. Put the computer in sleep mode. Okay, could it really be this easy? 


    I tapped the space bar on the computer, it started to wake up, and after a few seconds....... Boom, Video! :)


    Okay, now take that same card and put it in my 780 with the fresh Sierra install, loaded the DSDT from Post #1. 


    Booted the computer up, put it to sleep, tapped on the keyboard, and wallah!  Video!!!   :thumbsup_anim:


    Bios that works:  Wakes From Sleep.zip


    I know this is the Sierra and not High Sierra guide but I was wondering if this BIOS works with High Sierra as I'm having sleep issues.


    I installed 10.13.6 on my 780 with Sapphire 5450 1GB and flashed the 5450 BIOS from above. Sleep still not working, it wakes the computer but not the monitor. Any ides? I attached my files below.

    WOW that worked! Sound works and never sounded so good... thanks MacPeet!


    Only problem is sleep. The computer wakes from sleep but not the monitor and I have to reboot. I am using the DSDT from POST #1 for Core2Quad & 5450

    The codec in AppleALC is broken for 780/760 since 10.13.4. Rollback AppleHDA from 10.13.3 is necessary.


    Thanks MacPeet!


    I got impatient and pulled the Nvidia card and did a fresh install with a Sapphire AMD 5450 I had since there's plenty of info on it here and your provided DSDT and config.plist seems to be close to my setup: Sapphire AMD 5450 1GB and Intel Core 2 Quad CPU... mine is a Q9400.


    Most everything is working but unfortunately sleep wakes the computer but not the monitor and sound only works through HDMI not the green speaker output in the back. 


    Anyways, can someone take a look at my attached IOreg/RunME files below? I'm close, but can't seem to get it yet. :cry:

    Sleep and sound seem to be the only things not working. I have AppleALC.kext and injected Audio 11 but still no sound.


    Can someone take a look at my attached RunMe (IOreg) files below and let me know what I missed?

    is device RTC or USB Asmedia

    I researched BIOS settings from other X299 Hackintoshes and made some changes but the machine still restarts when awaken from sleep. I even tried all the Darkwake options with the new BIOS settings again but still same sleep problem.

    for sleep try a darkwake options


    I tired all Darwake options but all still make the machine reboot when awaken. 


    So I tried creating a SSDT (not sure if I did it right) but still the same issue. Can you take a peek at it for me? Below I have my RunMe files.

    if boot is fine, send me new SEND_ME after reboot


    Of course it boots fine Maldon, you touched it! I looked at About This Mac and the CPU now shows up as 3.31GHz 10-Core Intel Xeon E5 (see picture below) AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! I didn't't check anything else.


    Here are the SendMe Files:



  13. I have successfully installed 10.13.4 on my Gigabyte X299 UD4 with i9-7900x and am very excited.


    I have a couple issues:


    • Sleep = Reboots when wake
    • CPU = About this Mac shows 3.31GHz as Unknown (see picture below)
    • USB 3.0 not working


    I am hoping someone can help me on this. Not sure if a DSDT or SSDT is needed which I don't now how to do. :(

  14. Awesome guide, thank you!

    I installed 10.13.2 fine, upgraded to 10.13.4 and my USB 3.0 ports don't work... Any ideas???

    Also would a DSDT or SSDT be good for my setup? Not sure how to do either one but I see a lot of mention of it. I have attached my RunMe files if that helps.

    106 work with latest Security update?


    UPDATE: According to xlr8yourmac the build changes to 17E202 and breaks the driver.


    Funny you should mention this...


    The App Store had a Security Update 2018-001 that was released today so I installed it. My Nvidia drivers now no longer work so I tried to install 387. and it says

    Mac OS X version is not compatible

    Mac OS X version 10.13.4 (17E202) is not supported with this package. Please see NVIDIAS website for further driver information. And it will notify me when drivers are available.


    Notice it says 10.13.4 (17E202) which I guess the Security Update updated it to 17E202. Now no more Nvidia drivers for me :( 


    Prior to the update I did make sure to install latest Clover boot loader, and update Lilu.kext to 1.2.3 and AppleALC to 1.2.6 which I believe are the latest.
