I think the better way is to post the last efi file, to see if something is wrong, and i suggest to remove any kext from L\E\ and S\L\E\, because it's not normal, and by the way, don't use the modded rom bios of the card! What do you think about that Cyberdevs, i'm sure that something is going for wrong :whistle:

Well it's a very strange behavior, I thing it could be related to the EFI folder as well, as I mentioned before in my earlier posts; Let's double check everything:

1. Use the latest BIOS?

2. Is the EFI folder optimized correctly?

3. Is the config.plist has the correct settings?

4. Is the BIOS/UEFI's settings are correct?

5. Is this problem only happening in macOS, What are the the benchmark scores in windows?

6. How did you create the USB installer disk?

 

@AceMcLoven Please answer these questions and we can narrow down the cause.

Thanks man, I'll give it shot with the EFI folder provided. 

 

1. I have the latest F5a for my Mobo

2. I'm not sure on this one

3. For the most part I have followed most guides especially for my board. 

4. BIOS settings are set as recommended and i posted the pictures to show and used your recommended settings. 

5. I don't really use windows. I have a windows drive but dont use it at all. 

6. I did use unibeest to make the USB installer.

I'm patching the DSDT of your board, and this will keep system stable!

Well I suggest using the createinstallmedia method to create 100% vanilla macOS USB installer. I don't know what that beast thingy does to the installer and we don't support it anyway!

 

to create the installer use the following command in terminal but before you do prepare a USB disk, Format the disk with Disk Utility with the following specifications

1. Use MacOS Extended Journaled with GUID partition scheme

2. Don't rename the USB disk let the name to be "Untitled"

3. Make sure the the "Install macOS High Sierra is placed in the applications folder

4. Open terminal and paste the following command:

         sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app —nointeraction

5. Once the creation of the installer is done, mount the EFI partition on the USB disk and then copy the EFI folder I posted on the EFI partition and reboot the system

6. Do a clean install and then test the performance.

I'll give this a try. So far I put the EFI folder you posted in my EFI folder and froze on this screen. 

 

 

I'll do a new boot USB disk using your method with your instructions and see if it works.

Ok before you do anything just let me edit the config.plist and repost it to fix that error.

Replace the config with this one and let me know.

So there issue of the MACH-Reboot is resolved with the last config.plist correct? and you are using the same EFI folder that I gave you?

Thats correct. I didnt get that MACH-Reboot  this time and using your EFI folder. 

I'm currently creating the USB using your method.

That's good, I hope with a clean install the issue gets resolved.

      Hi everybody i can't see the frequencies of the GPU in HWMonitor tab.
      I have the last release 6.23
      Let me know.
       
      Thanks

      Hey all. I'm not exactly new here, but I don't post that much. I recently installed a fresh copy of Sierra on my i7-3770k (mobo is an Asrock Z77 Pro 3), and all is well except for my GPU. I have an AMD R9 280x (ASUS R9280X-DC2T-3GD5) and I'm aware that it's difficult to get OS X of any version to boot it directly without having the Intel GPU boot the system first. I'm aware of a user whose name I can't think of's scripts and whatnot to inject device IDs etc into Clover so it boots up as you'd expect with my 280x, but that's not working. Can anyone help me get mine working properly? I've tried to go through the personality tutorial etc but I couldn't get it working right.
       
      It's important that I have utilization of my discrete GPU because I have a BlackMagic Design Intensity Pro 4k capture card out for delivery, and I'd like to use it and then use BMD's NLE (NonLinearEditor) called DaVinci Resolve to edit the videos I make. Currently I'm able to boot up with the onboard GPU as main, and then just have my three displays use the 280x, but the main GPU is still my HD 4000.
       
      I hope I'm making sense here..
       
      Thanks in advance,

      Hello,
      I have a splendid working machine with annoying hiccups... meaning, everything its working, and it is quite fast. Mostly I use it for video editing in Final Cut Pro X and After Effects. I carefully selected the mix in order to be optimized for FinalCut and Video editing and processing. I had a small hindsight about the XFX possible difficulties... but after sometime of trying different options, It is working (flashing bios method). I upgraded to EL CAPITAN about 2 months from now, and got wifi card enabled and working (before I was using ethernet cable mostly)... Everything goes well and smooth, and at times it hangs, and sometimes shut down, and stays in a reestarting loop (2 or 3 times loop max) and stays fine for some other time until it hangs again or freezes... and again same thing... I NEED HELP !!! I require a reliable, robust, and stable machine!... can any of you experts give me a hand on this! Thank you in advance...

      OSx: Yosemite 10.10.3 on EFI (Clover)
      MOBO: MSI z97 SLI Krait Edition
      CPU: 3.6 GHz Intel Core i7 - 4790
      GPU: XFX R9 28x
      RAM: 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
      SSD: KINGSTON 240G SV300S37A
       
      Everything works fine... and around 4 months ago I started getting crashes few times a day, the screen goes blank or freezes and it doesn't respond to any commands, I have to force reboot (Restart Key) and it goes fine after that... Please help me find a solution... it works, but sometimes it gets annoying... specially when in critical video editing moments, or client visits.
       
      At times when i have to force reboot, the system gets a bit damage, and I have to go through a process of maintenance of hard disks and all (SSD system disk, or HHD system Backup disk)
       
      Thank you very much for your assistance,

      Hi, I am trying to work out why my R9 280X is taking about 10x or so longer than the intergrated HD 4600 graphics to export videos with H.264.
       
      My system:
      Mb: MSI Z97 PC Mate
      CPU: i7 4790k
      GPU: MSI Twin Frozr R9 280X 6G
      RAM: 16GB 1600Mhz Team Elite Plus
       
      I am using Clover and after a lot of researching I have discovered that it's to do with the H.264 acceleration in the HD 4600 chip that's making it so fast but surely the 280X has this?
       
      I am using Final Cut Pro X latest version, 10.2.2 and I know the GPU is fully working perfectly as I did the BruceX test which gave me a whooping 15 second result so if I was using just Apple Prores, then it woulr be no problem but as I do not have the space for prores and I need to use H.264 anyway afterwards as I am doing videos for YouTube, just doing straight to H.264 is the quicker from what I have seen as Mpeg Streamclip isn't giving any speed increase converting prores to H.264.
       
      Does anyone have any idea what I need to do as I do want to use the 280X but I do need fast exports like hd 4600 with h.264?
       
      A video that takes over 10 minutes to export as h.264 on the 280x took about 40 seconds on the hd 4600.
       
      I did follow the guide on 'censor' but as it's all clover now, it's no different than the methods here how I did the install. Just stating for the record incase anyone asks what I did.
