  1. Thanks. Just re-grouped my notes to make things more clear.
  2. - Some Clover versions will not work properly with our Legacy BIOS systems. I specifically suggested Clover version 4644 or 4700 because I tested them to work properly. - With MacPro5,1 definition. installer automatically compares used Video Card Vendor and Device ID with Apple's own list of Mojave compatible cards. If it doesn't match it generates error code. This video card compatibility check is not performed with newer System Definitions like iMac14,2. - I mention coping of apfs.efi driver to EFI/CLOVER/drivers64 folder in case someone forgets to select ApfsDriverLoader-64 option during Clover install or update. Used Clover settings are not always transferred during Clover updates.
  3. First problem you may encounter is Clover version to be used with Mojave. The one that works properly is 4644 and 4700. Second problem may be an installation error with MacPro5,1 definition. In such a case you will need temporarily change System definition to iMac14.2 and change it back to MacPro5.1 after installation is finished. (If your card relies on nVidia Web Drivers to work, you should wait with upgrade to Mojave until nVidia releases new drivers) You can find complete info in updated Overclocking Guide.
  4. Proszę bardzo. Miło mi że mogłem pomóc.
  5. Mojave Audio with Native AppleHDA.kext for GA-EX58-UD5: 1. Remove previously installed Audio kexts and Audio patches from config.plist 2. Set layout id to 1 in config.plist/Devices/Audio/Inject/layout 3. Download AppleALC and Lilu kexts from embedded links 4. Place downloaded AppleALC.kext and Lilu.kext in EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other or EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.14 5. Reboot
  6. d00d's ready to download DSDT files do not include this fix, but it is described in point 19 option C of his guide. You can find this fix in attached DSDT for GA-EX58-UD5/F13. If you decide to use attached DSDT, make sure to uncheck FixLAN option in Clover. DSDT.aml
  7. Thank you for explanation. Wasn't aware of this Clover issue because I had it previously fixed via DSDT.
  8. Can you explain your Message issue and how did you solve it with Clover? Thank you.
  9. Everything works fine here. Make sure your config.plist is updated with latest Clover Configurator
  10. - Just as you mentioned, I find no reason to upgrade. - When it comes to Max VCore: I would keep lowering DVID and testing stability to determine what is minimum DVID value (or VCore) required to maintain this overclock on your MOBO.
  11. - In general Max CPU VCore = Min CPU VCore + DVID value, but on the top of that it is also adjusted by "Load Line Calibration" setting in BIOS. Check what is the actual minimum VCore value of your CPU. Lowest Vcore value will be shown in BIOS at M.I.T/Advanced Voltage Control/CPU Vcore. Also on my MOBO I can only turn "Load Line Calibration" ON or OFF. On your MOBO this setting has choice of several "Levels". Try playing with different levels. - Here are results of new test that I performed today using 64bit HWMonitor 1.34 and IntelBurnTest set to Maximum Stress Level: At Powers/CPU/Max it shows 195.35 Watts. At Intel Xeon X5670/Powers/Package/Max it shows 108.55 Watts. - My HWMonitor, FakeSMC and Sensors kexts were extracted from HWSensors.6.16.1372.pkg using Pacifist. FakeSMC.kex was patched for smc-thurley (MacPro5,1 platform) which is described in point 13 of d00d guide. Sensors kexts were placed inside FakeSMC/Show Package Contents/Contens/Plugins folder. You can find it all in attatched EX58-UD5:F13.zip. Don't add ACPISensors.kext to Plugins folder. It can cause many different problems, even in systems with properly configured BIOS and perfectly patched DSDT. - Ability to access and display GPU VCore sensor value depends on video card model, HWMonitor and Sensors kexts. It works with my evga GTX 780 and attatched kexts EX58-UD5:F13.zip
  12. I am glad that my OC guide worked for you. Thank you for sharing your thoughts in such a detailed report. Hopefully it will encourage others to try this method as well. P.S. Would you please copy/paste your last post to my OC guide page.
  13. I have two identical computers with the exception of CPUs. One has Xeon X5670 and the other i7-980X. The both overclocked to 4.54GHz as explained in my guide. When it comes to stress testing on Mac side I used Geekbench 3 Stress Test feature. On Windows I used Intel Burn Test. My overclocking method is very simple: At the beginning I set DVID to +0.24375 as this value would give me desired maximum CPU VCore of 1.408V. Than I left all other voltages I could at Auto and just played with BCLK value until I reached stability. Then using Easytune6 and Hardware Monitor on Windows I reviewed actual values of BIOS parameters that were set to Auto. Since all values looked fine to me I decided to leave them at Auto. RAM Notes: In both of my computers all 6 RAM slots were always occupied. Initially I used Corsair XMS3 RAM running at 1.65V and with "Intel® Turbo Boost" enabled in BIOS I could not obtain stability beyond 174 BCLK/4.17GHz. Corsair XMS3 RAM is falsely advertised by many internet sellers as 1.5V type. This RAM will not work properly below 1.65V. When I switched to Low Power CORSAIR Vengeance LP RAM and left it at default 1.5V and 9-9-9-24 timings, higher stable CPU overclock became possible. In general I do not overclock my RAM, trying to run it at the lowest voltage as increasing RAM voltage is an obstacle in getting the best CPU overclock possible.
  14. Here are my scores with Geekbench 4: https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/7012455 It is 3847 for single core and 18547 for multi-core. At the beginning I used the same overclocking approach as yours with "Intel® Turbo Boost" disabled and everything worked fine. Later I desired for my overclock to be "by the book" and within the following guidelines: - CPU VCore should not exceed 1.4175V at maximum - CPU temperature should not exceed 69 C at maximum load during regular use - All possible C/P States should be used If your overclock gives you what you want there is no reason to change it.
  15. To get all multipliers and power states you must enable "Intel® Turbo Boost" in BIOS.
