    Vega Frontier Edition on High Sierra

    Well I was too optimistic still good news though. I tried to reproduce the behaviour without PP_DisableFanControl and without PP_DisablePowerContainment in my clover / device / properties. I found out that with the default power settings the card turns the fans to Idle too. The GPU core clock remains at 1630MHz which heats up the GPU fast and heats it up beyond 57 degrees Celsius starting the fans to spin up. The fans cools the GPU down quick because there is no load but this hole heating up cooling down spinning up spinning down takes place in 10sec. So that's really annoying. Lowering the PowerLimits keeps the clocks down after load. The result is that the card stops its fans right after quitting GPU load. And keep the clocks at about 270Mhz / 500Mhz memory. Temps remain 39 deg. Celsius. I think it's still not perfect.

    I'm so glad that I yes I lol fixed the fan issue for once and for all hahaha well lets hope it! See above it looks its not a boolean. CMMChris acked it works for him too.

    Yes man i know. I already double checked it. There is a difference. I will check it tonight once more...

    I have a possible breaktrough... and you won't believe it... See this: Thats wrong ... lol but it behaves much better than setting with 0 or 1 With 0 I have toggling fan due 1630Mhz clock which stays there heats up the card and start the fans cools it down and turns the fans down all in 10 sec so very annoying. With 1 I have 1200RPM steady in IDLE not working for me. With 3 yes three is works as it should. See attached PPT excel I used and Performance Statistics made during a Valley benchmark run (ended with 74fps). Can you confirm 3 is a valid option or did I just opened pandora's box ;-). Does it make sense to tune the PowerPlayTable? Thanks! temps.txt vega64-mac-pp_table-gen-V1.5.xlsx

    Well its close. Tuning in the PPT looks to have impact though. Best result is now to lower the power limit to 215W and Amps to 275. There is also a in the yellow square in your PPT with value 2. I will check Disable Fancontrol but idle 1200RPM is too much for me. What about flashing MSI bios? I did it in HD and it had positive impact too. It showed temps native and CSM worked because clover had native resolution. Maybe to start all over with MSI bios?

    I used these values as you said, adjusted clover with these settings. Can you please verify if I did everything correct? Results: With DisableFanControl = 1 I have High IDLE fan speed about 1200 RPM. Under load Fan RPM stays same. looks stable though. With DisableFanControl = 0 I have 0RPM Idle fan speed. GUI and Gaming feels more smoother. But crashed. Not with full fan blow but now I experienced something totally different. I heard that the fans started to spin up under load. Also quite quick after te load was applied on the GPU. From one moment to the other I experienced a lag and it felt that the game was dropping from 40 fps in 4K to 10fps in 4K. Also the fans were dropped to idle at that point. Alt Tab so see what the temps were caused a system crash and had to reboot. Also noticed that sometimes GPU clocks are maxed out (1630Mhz heating up GPU Fans starts cool it down and the process starts all over in 10 sec) wYou need to power off system to restore the lower P states. It looks that the card stays in P7 mode after a reboot.

    10.14.2? I thought 10.14.1 was latest. Will check your settings later. Had Some issues with my nas. Will check also your ppt. Thans for your effort realy apriciate iT!

    At the moment nothing. Just vanilla Mojave 10.14.1, Overall result stable, Fans behave normal (idle / stop / 0RPM) when booted and use system in 2D or watch some movies. Fans behave normal under serious load. Fans spin up as soon the temp becomes a certain value. After applying the load, (exit the game), the fans stays at 1500RPM and won't fall off to the standard boot values like 0RPM / IDLE. After sleep and a wake the settings are restored and the card becomes 0RPM and IDLE again. The values I used were: 1) Disable Fancontrol 0/1 only in clover settings (doesn't make a difference on above behaviour) 2) Used in the past just the kext "RadeonVegaLowFansSpeed.kext.zip" in clover\kexts\other 3) Used several clover device properties for powerplay settings. As soon as I have a "custom" powerplay setting the card becomes unstable and as you told a temperature protection mechanism is enabled by the card resulting black screen fans to 100% and necessary reboot. One of the latest powerplay settings I used was but without success. PowerPlay Settings GPU Clocks: 1150 / 1200 / 1250 / 1300 / 1350 / 1400 / 1450 / 1500 GPU Voltage: 950 / 975 / 1000 / 1025 / 1050 / 1075 / 1100 / 1125 HBM2 Clock: 1045 HBM2 Voltage / Voltage Floor: 950 Min. Fan Speed: 100 (= Stop) Idle Fan Speed: 100 (= Stop) Target Fan Speed: 2600 Max. Fan Speed: 3000 Temperature Target: 55°C Power Target: 100%

    Well, /gfxutil -f display reveals: DevicePath = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) what is the correct path. As soon as I apply any Table under clover device properties the card turns to black screen and blows the fans at 100% under extreme load after a while. I have to reboot. Without any settings applied my card stays stable under these same extreme conditions. Is there anybody who can tell me where to start? I tried "save" ones but also "extreme" ones with much lower voltages. I don't know where to start to get this solved because I think without these settings the card runs very inefficient (too high voltages) so I hope it can be solved.

    I did indeed Ioreg to find name. I found it was peg0 so I got partly the PCI path with: sh-3.2# ./gfxutil -f PEG0 DevicePath = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0) sh-3.2# but indeed /gfxutil -f display reveals: DevicePath = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) So it's correct.

    Yes exactly as described after "Oops my bad:"

    Well I thought It had to be added like its mentioned here and I saw it in other forum / topics as well. But You are right only the first part is mentioned the device path. In my context it means that this is the value I use for the discovered value as devicepath with the addition of /Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)

    download release here. execute with sudo sh-3.2# ./gfxutil -f PEG0 DevicePath = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0) output is: sh-3.2# ./gfxutil -f PEG0 DevicePath = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0) Clover Properties are : PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x1,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0)/Pci(0x0,0x0) So that's Ok. Chris can you please give me a few PowerTable tries to start with and to try to find the best match for the Sapphire RX Vega 64 nitro? A lot of people out here with that card. You told that running this card perfectly correct PowerTable settings are needed but I don't know what to change to be honest.

    Sure I can check it later but the other power table settings I used, which causes the gpu to overload with temps, are added the same way on the same pci address. So I guess it must be correct. I will verify later.

    The behaviour is exactly the same as without the setting. Without GPU load system usage fans stay 0RPM. GPU usage starts spins up 3D apps are stable. After 3D usage fans fall off to 1500RPM. Sleep / Wake restores 0 RPM again.
