    Vega Frontier Edition on High Sierra

    The last time I tried this, WEG didn't work with the dual DisplayPort pass-through for my 5K display. VegaGraphicsFixup was the only thing that actually worked.

    I second this - I can successfully (for the first time) sleep my X299 build, and everything comes back - my 5K LG Ultrafine display, and all of the connected USB devices. Nice, thank you!

    Plenty of us already have! Do a search for KPG's X299 guide here on the forums.

    I'm keen to see what you come up with. I have a Sapphire Nitro+ Vega 64 that has lovely quiet fans, but some shocking coil whine whenever I scroll webpages, or the source editor in Xcode. It's driving me batty, and making me consider going back to an RX5xx series GPU.

    VirtualSMC — SMC Emulator

    You probably already know this, but macOS 10.14.1 will be out this week - mostly likely after the Apple event on Tuesday. We haven't had an Xcode seed for 2 weeks, which is usually the tell-tale sign that a release is about to land.
  6. Unfortunately after a week with the new PSU, the Titan Ridge controller started acting up again. I've had to remove it from my system, and go back to the Alpine Ridge (which while not perfect, does work acceptably). If I had to guess why I'm having issues, it is probably because my primary display output goes via the card, and the display contains a secondary TB3 hub, and USB-C/3.1 hub. Anyway, my system is stable again, and I'll have another look at the Titan Ridge in a month or two.
  7. Yeah, the 1200W PSU I installed seems to have resolved the issues I was seeing. So the moral of the story is: don't skimp on the PSU when building a workstation
  8. @KGP-iMacPro my computer is set to not sleep. I’m beginning to suspect than my 850W PSU isn’t enough.
  9. I imagine this is related to the LG 5K Ultrafine display I use, but since installing the Titan Ridge AIO card my machine crashes if I leave it sitting for too long (actually, I think it's crashing when it tries to wake the display). Once this happens, I need to completely power down the entire machine (unplug it from the wall) to get it to boot again - otherwise it stops at the BIOS Post screen saying "Code: AD, Detect HDD". I assume either the Titan Ridge, or my Vega 64 is being left in an unusable state by whatever is causing this. Is anyone else seeing similar issues with their KGP X299 builds?

    Oh, no, I have the LG 5K Ultrafine (the dud that Apple sold when it retired the Cinema Displays). It works fine, so long as you don't disconnect and reconnect it. If you do that, the internal ThunderBolt hub in the monitor doesn't come back up and you lose brightness/volume controls, and the attached USB hubs. Same old, same old, sadly.

    Got my Titan Ridge AIO card and installed it without issue in an X299 system today. Works as described by @KGP-iMacPro (although for the first time, I can see the on-board USB-C interface with my LG 5K display connected).

    As far as I'm aware, that's a limitation of the Vega's firmware. They all do it.

    When you say "shortcut" can you describe that in more detail? Are you saying that the system's power is shorted out?

    ASUS USB Header: Gigabyte F_USB: It's just upside down it doesn't look like there's any difference at all aside from that.

    Looking at the manual for a Titan Ridge compatible motherboard like the H370 AORUS, the connectors look identical (although they are vertically inverted from each other). The "F" seems to stand for "Front Panel" on the Gigabyte boards.
