Did you patch Ati controller?

My monitor is VGA and im using HDMI converter its work normal but i can't get the qe/ci R7 240 DDR5 2Gb

No, I didn't patch anything. I did only those I said in the first post.

There may be a problem to get QE/CI by HDMI. The connector is not intended for 3D graphics.

You'd better look for DVI->VGA converter.

working well in Sierra?

I'm about to test Sierra once it downloads from the App Store. (will edit with results)

 

EDIT: forgot to make a few changes, reinstalling

 

EDIT #2: it's not showing up anymore. Upgraded from Yosemite. (maybe I did something wrong, I'm checking atm)

 

EDIT #3: I reverted back and seem to be stuck in a kernel panic every time I inject. Fixdisplay was also injected - will post logs later

 

EDIT #4: can confirm that it does work in Sierra.

My R5 240 works in el capitan with Fake-ID:0x67981002   FBname: Oland 

 

The R5 240 is an OEM card. 

 

I have a Dell one. I can get it work in the sense that I can boot, and the appearance of acceleration i.e. no screen tearing, metal supported etc.. but if I try running Geekbench and opencl compute the screen crashes. 

 

Can you please try running a Geekbench compute test on your system and post a screen shot?

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

I am summarizing a few days effort here and so details may be missing.

 

I managed to get this card, a Sapphire R7 240,  "working" on 10.12.1 Sierra with what looks like "acceleration" on the desktop.

 

I used various tools, creating the USB installer with the standard 39## series of Clover, once installed I had to use ##### because manually attempting to get Clover to work failed. Then after ##### I could only boot using a USB which had a Clover install of 3650.

 

Versions 37## and 39## Clover did not want to boot properly.

 

I could not get the card to work with 10.11.6 El Capitan.

 

I don't know what I did to get it to work in one case and not the other, but I think it may have to do with Clover and my lack of understanding how Clover works. I was trying to run multiple OS X installs on a single hard drive and none of them were booting without a USB.

 

I can confirm that the card appears to work offering acceleration in OSX 10.12.1 Sierra on the desktop but running the OpenCL test on Geekbench fails with a system lock up. No screen shot is therefore possible. Whether this constitutes as correctly working acceleration is questionable.

Compute was why I bought the card really as I use FCPX a lot. Most games on the other hand will use opengl and I think that it works ok for that. 

 

In any case my motherboard gave up a few days ago, so I'm cutting my losses and sticking with my MBP.

What FB did you use to get it working on OS X 10.12.1?

      Hey!
      As I have 3 Monitors connected, my RX 570 gets arround 50°C while ideling/ web browsing etc. The problem is, that this temp is apparently just the threshold, when the fans start to spin. So the fans start spinning for a minute then they stop for a while again... This is very annoying for me as the rest of my hackintosh is nearly quiet (SSD, 120mm low RPM cpu fan, nearly silent PSU,...), especially when Im using the pc to revise for school. Does somebody know wether its possible to "change" the threshold till the fans start spinning? Like it would probably not be a problem for the gpu at all, if the temp rises to 55°C but therefore be soundless....

      RAM : 8G

      Hey all,
       
      First Hackintosh that I think I have completed! I've been working on it on and off for a month, but just grinded it this past weekend. I just have a small QOL issue. I have posted in the r/Hackintosh reddit, but have not gotten a reply to this specific issue, but did for other issues I was having. I also posted at tonymacx86 and was getting replies for other issues I was having, but got banned because I said, "used VM, but didn't work" in my OP I think ...
       
      I followed a PC vanilla guide from r/Hackintosh that I found as I did not have an Apple system. One monitor connected to a GTX 1080, CPU: i7-8700, Coffee Lake. Motherboard is Alienware specific 0VDT73, with chipset Z370.
       
      The issue is every time High Sierra boots up and gets to the login screen, my keyboard and mouse do not work. I only have to reseat both and then they work the whole time until I restart. They are both plugged into USB2.0 ports. I do have Lilu, WhateverGreen, USBInjectAll, and VoodooPS2 installed in my /Library/Extensions folder using #####. Mouse and Keyboard work fine each time I boot to Clover (USB). Any ideas?
       
      Thank you!
      Working: NVIDIA using (One) DisplayPort, USB3.0 (rear), USB-C (rear), USB2.0 (rear), Audio, Ethernet
       
      EDIT: Did some more testing, and it looks like my Keyboard works fine after each reboot, the only issue is that my mouse has to continuously be reseated. Any ideas? Could it just be the mouse?It's an old Inland USB mouse: 337451
