Thanks works flawless on my Asus Laptop G750JX. I was using ALXethernet for the last two years Yosemite and El Capitan no issues then I did a clean install of Sierra 10.12.1 and I got a reboot every time it went to sleep and it came down to the ALX driver to be the cause.

Stefan Milev got a reaction from ADISAK J.SOPARK in Best settings for HD5770
Hi guys, I have a very good hackintosh in a G5 case with original look. I'm using Clover for UEFI booting and everything except one thing is good.
I'm using MacPro 3,1 as SMBIOS. I know my video card is old, but it could perform a bit better and stay a bit cooler. I read people say that they have the same card (Vapor-x) running around 36 degrees, which is a lot cooler than mine.
My problem is that in Mavericks it runs with 57-58 degrees Celsius on idle. In Yosemite it's 54 degrees with 26 ambient temperature. In terms of performance I see no problems. The only difference which I know of in Clover is SMBIOS. In Mavericks I use MacPro 3,1 and in Yosemite iMac 13,2 12,2. In both my card is correctly recognized with some settings in Clover. (Later I will post a screenshot).
The only thing I didn't touch on either system is AGPM kext. I would like to try to tweak that, but I still don't understand how it works and what are the values I need to put.
So my question is if someone is using this card with Clover and has a better performance in terms of temperature, please share some info what needs to be done to get the best of this card.

So I believe I found the issue, but the news are not so good.
Synology in my case has nothing to do with the issue (I use it as a NAS and iTunes music share).
I think Time Capsule is the issue. It has Bonjour sleep proxy service which basically "highjacks" the IP of the hack when it goes to sleep and replies to multicast DNS queries.
28/09/14 09:21:11,000 kernel: en0 duplicate IP address 192.168.110.112 sent from address d8:30:62:xx:xx:xx (d8:30:62:xx:xx:xx is the mac address of my Time Capsule.)
This helps the computer to save power and if it's needed to wake it up, Time Capsule sends wake packet and wakes the computer.
The problem is that when the hack wakes up the host name is already registered with another mac address on the same IP in my firewall (pfsense) DHCP tables.
This is seen as there is another machine with the same name
28/09/14 09:42:26,491 discoveryd: Basic DNSResolver Re-Binding to random udp port 61139 This is log entry from pfsense firewall when the hack wakes:
kernel: arp: 192.168.110.112 moved from d8:30:62:xx:xx:xx to 94:de:80:xx:xx:xx on vr0 and the OS decides to change the name:
28/09/14 09:43:45,250 configd: setting hostname to "Stefans-iMac-6.local" 28/09/14 09:43:45,336 discoveryd: Basic Bonjour Changing computer name from Stefan’s iMac (7) to Stefan’s iMac (4)
All that is still fresh in my head and maybe it doesn't make any sense to all, but I'm giving the raw data which is not structured yet. I'm still investigating this.
I can also say that this is an issue for a very long time and has nothing to do with Yosemite being beta and such.
These are my findings, feel free to correct me if you think I'm wrong.
Maybe disabling sleep proxy client will solve the issue. Look here how to do it.

Ok, so after restoring AppleHDA.kext with combo update I tried the 2.0 script. I have no audio. Files attached.
Can you please advice?
By the way I changed the HD5770, now i have GTX660. Although I think this doesn't have a lot in common.

There's always something that can be done, but the question is whether we are ready to do it.
Stefan Milev reacted to jamiethemorris in Clover General discussion
The settings you are looking for are under BIOS Features:
-Windows 8 Features: Set to Windows 8 WHQL
-CSM Support: Disabled
-Boot mode selection: UEFI Only
If your BIOS does not have these features, see if the latest beta BIOS has them.
You also need to have a UEFI vbios (A.K.A. GOP as it is referred to for graphics cards) for your card. AFAIK EVGA does not have these avaiable for download on their website, but according to this, if you send them a request at email@example.com they will send you the UEFI firmware.
If you can't get a hold of the proper UEFI BIOS for your mobo or graphics card, see if you can patch the vbios manually with NiBiTor and either load it or flash it. This has worked for me on AMD/ATI cards, I can't speak for if it works for Nvidia though. More information on how to add your resolution can be found here.
Hope that helps.

If your aim is to be able to boot Clover either in legacy & UEFI mode (depending on what your BIOS setting is), then tick "Install Clover in the ESP" but leave "Install for UEFI booting only" unticked - the rest of your install settings are OK. This will install the necessary Clover boot files in the MBR & PBR....
refer Clover wiki What is what.
Golden rule of computing: Never delete something unless you have a backup copy and can restore files/settings to their previous state should things go wrong. The EFI folder is needed by Clover to boot, regardless of whether it is by the legacy or UEFI pathways.
If you want to return your EFI partition to a "clean state" (removing boot files etc), you can format it with the following in terminal (replace X with your disk number, Y is usually 1):
sudo newfs_msdos -v EFI -F 32 /dev/rdiskXsY
