Hello jhrfc,

 

You will find hereby my Clover files ( Clover 2.5k-r5107) config.plist and X58 SSDT-ALL.aml. The EFI structure is in image.

I have upgraded my bios for years know with GA-EX58-UD5 -F13 mod11 (and bumped it a little bit to 3.46Hgz), i don't know if its important ....

Specs bios F13 mod11:

Updated :
IRST 11.6.0.1702
Realtek 2.50
Jmicron 1.07.28

 

(I use Kextupdater (v.3.4.1) for latest versions check of kexts)

 

Let me know if this helps !

 

Cheers

Thanks very much! As you see form my sig i know have highsieraa, and the xeon installed! I also went Radeon for GPU, to enable mojave, catalina etc.

The performance increase is significant. changing the psates as in doods famous post, turbo and speed step working great.

After a period of stability, I'll some moderate overclocking, cpu temps currently v low with my upgraded cooler.

Thanks again.

Jon

Now made the move to Mojave, all well. (sleep, speedstep, turbo etc), have also overclocked the CPU to 3.8 GHZ.

May now experiment with catalina. I know i will have to change the SMBIOS away form the old faithfull macpro5,1 i guess i'll need to be careful to not break the cpu power management.

@jhrfc You can keep your Mac Pro 5,1 SMBios the only thing you need to add  into your Config.Plist is no_compat_check  and you can boot Cat woman

Personally recommending Mojave because it is much more stable than Catalina and you will definitely get some sleep and wake problems

Thanks @Rocky12! I read you needed to chnage the smbios for at least the upgrade/install, is that right?

Also out of interest which clover version are you using with catalina?

Will definitely install on an experemental disk for now!

Cheers

@jhrfc Yes this is true to get the latest updates you need to have a supported SMBios because Apple drop support for a bunch of machines so that’s why you need to have one which is supported

it doesn't make any problem if you still use Mac Pro 5,1 the only thing you have to add no_compat_check just to bypass the installation process 

how to get the latest update there are some tools over macrumors but I don't now if they are working on hack

Anyone tried this X58 with OpenCore?

I am in the progress and have some issues like, cannot restart, cannot boot with verbose and iClould error.

 

The one that I really want to fix is the restart, currently it ended with a black screen then I have to press the reset button to restart.

Shutdown and wake from sleep are ok.

 

Restart works fine in Clover without the need of a specialized kext.
