Finally Manage to make on of the most powerful and compact Hackintosh available with > the i9-9940X 14 cores + the AsRock X299e motherboard and Vega RX 64 8GB.
Used for Editing, Motion Design and VFX on Mojave 10.14.3 Exports time >Four time faster compared to my last i7 6 cores hackintosh.
Need to add a lot of parameters to get the config.plst to work but once it's right it Works very smoothly! Turbo Boost up to 4.2 Ghz all core
Geekbench scores Multi core : 54000 (above the iMacPro 18 cores) Single core : 5200 GPU : 186 800
Ethernet & Audio work without kext
GPU : The Gygabite VEGA RX 64 required a lowfanspeed.kext otherwise it will always have the fans running in full speed mode (and it can get really noisy).
Bluetooth & wifi (you can get a blue tooth dongle - the Azus works but you may experience some issue or lag sometime so the best solution is to replace the Bluetooth/Wifi card with the Bcm94360cs2 AC + its adaptor:
With this card you won't need any kext to make it work : you will get native bluetooth and wifi support and even be able to control your bios and clover with your bluetooth magic mouse / keyboard !
USB3 PORTS : need to add some kext 1 of the 2 USB 3.1 WORK in full speed > USB C in 3.1 and for some mysterious reson the other USB type A in 3.1 work as USB 2 only
The other 4 USB3 work fine and the 2 USB3 of my front IO (NCASE M1) work fine too
XRP RAM OVERCLOCK : YES CPU Overcloking to 4.5GHz may work but did experience some freeze/crash and didn't notice any increase in render time when activated.
Now have a Olarila app, just download app and clover folder for your Chipset!
Install MacOS with Olarila Image, Step by Step, Install and Post Install
If you need DSDT edits...
-Post your full Clover folder with original tables in Origin folder(Extract with F4 in Clover boot screen)
-Run it, post files generated in your desktop

We're all here to have fun and learn from each other!
Which of these two motherboards would give less hassle in a Hackintosh build - requiring fewer after install fixes/updates to get everything working in Mojave or High Sierra?
These are the only two Asus models that I can afford, fit the form factor in my build, and already have had a BIOS upgrade by Asus to 9th-generation - if I want to replace the CPU with an i9 in the future (for now I'll be using i7-8700 or even i3-8350k but I want to future proof a bit)
