BTW, I noticed that iStat does not shows Fan RPM

 

 

 

Fan's are defined in SSDT-5.aml , anyway 

 

replace FakeSMC with VirtualSMC  ( here 1.0.7 ) ..

FAN0 is not connected here

@texem virtualSMC does not support GPU temps though... 

 

Where did you find SSDT-5.aml ?

right, unfortunately one can not have all :wink_anim: 

 

SSDT-5.AML from origin DSDT, F4 Clover dump - not patched and loaded by Clover automatically until you drop OEM SSDT.

I guess that is true :D

 

I'm trying to decipher that part:

Dump your DSDT with Clover "F4" and look into your EFI/Clover/ACPI/origin folder. Decompile SSDT-5.aml -> FAN devices.

Ah ok, I thought you where talking about Clover Configurator and I was pressing F4 in Clover Configurator but nothing was happening, then I googled it :lol:

 

I will put 3-sec timer for clover to enter in it on boot :D

 

Could you let me know how I can decompile aml files? And once I decompile SSDT-5.aml what then? 

 

Thanks!

Think only way's is uninstall and then reboot/reinstall istat... (I've 6.31 and it work well...)

 

...maybe iStat hate ur Vega LoL ...or it only work with downtown hackintosh for "no money people with RX" ahahahahahah xD

 

btw...I don't use FileVault...and I don't use script in the guide...but all works well and great...

ps on catalina, wake are "one key" start...no double (one for wake one for enter) like Mojave...and...no more {censored} message "usb not eject properly" after wake!!!! (for me patch in Glasgod guide don't work in Mojave)

so...

at this point...definitely my first work goes on this build.

Ps Pr AE and Capture 1 definitely goes on here!

Start producing lol

:thumbsup_anim:

 

Finally solved simply using leaving only VirtualSMC and the nice  HWMonitorSMC2 app!

Nice to know that we are ready for Catalina!! :thumbsup_anim:

I kind of like iStat Menus because it combines many things and it is very detailed about each aspect you monitor; thus I'm gonna stick with what I have for now and try to fix the DSDT to be able to see fans as well

I’d like too but can’t make it work for gpu die

@gino8080 I did made GPU Die work as you can see in the following screenshot:

image.png.38cfb987fefa160af38ca3e46d16aacf.png

 

but I do not have fan indicators, so I'm unable to see CPU Fan RPM's, and it is kind of important for me for my reasons.

 

I did that by replacing VirtualSMC with FakeSMC, BUT I do not suggest it to anyone, and I quote @AudioGod:

Quote

FakeSMC is an older no longer supported version of virtual smc. The problem is it’s no better then virtual smc  and as time goes on it’s going to get more and more troublesome.

glasgood gave up using fakesmc because of how it was affecting different systems including he’s own.

 

thus; I'm suggesting you stick with HWMonitorSMC2 since it works perfectly fine, I will do it as well, and I will keep iStat Menus for Memory, Network, HDD and Time until maybe an update of VirtualSMC will make iStat Menus being able to detect GPU as well.

iStat Menus is showing Fan1 and Fan2 speeds for me, using VirtualSMC 1.0.7. I'm not sure which fans those correspond to - they are running around 860 to 930rpm. I'd imagine one is the CPU fan. Are you referring to some other fans not showing up?

Take a look for "MaciASL" ACPI Table Decompiler/Compiler.

The author of VirtualSMC wrote he wants to be most compatible to original Hardware with completely new written code and has no plans to integrate more sensors like f.i. FSMC with plugins does. This is why our "iMacPro" only has 2 fans in iStat .

No idea why Hwmonitor is able to show us all 5 possible fans and btw: there are forks for FSMC and some development still exist.

With VirtualSMC I'm also able to see Fan1 and Fan2, and I also assume they correspond to my water colling fans. They run at ~950rpm, of course with VirtualSMC I'm not getting GPU temp in iStat, I'm able to see GPU temp with HWMonistor SMC2.

 

Also in HWMonitor SMC2 fan indicators, Fan0 and Fan4 indicate my CPU fans, and Fan1 indicate a fan I have on the backside of the tower.

 

@texem thanks a lot for the info! I was digging in GitHub yesterday, indeed there are many FakeSMC forks out there, I think I'm gonna stick with the flow, VirtualSMC is young in comparison to FakeSMC, but is it's successor so I believe further development will be done and maybe a 3rd party plugin will allow to have GPU stats as well, nothing to rush about I think.

 

I removed the GPU Die from iStat Menus and placed HWMonitor SMC2 next to it to show my GPU temp:

image.png.6fdcd3cb39d18193f1fbe11e3939e27d.png

 

The only thing that I would love to have in HWMonistor SMC2 is to not dim the menu bar when you are not in Finder. For instance when I switch from Finder to any other app, the menubar dim:

image.png.0b58c503bc152566516daa6887ccb870.png

 

I know that this is the native macOS behaviour, but I would like to have an option to not dim :)

 

Cheers!

Try changing View Preferences theme

This is mine, and that it do NOT dim when I change app, only when I change focus monitor, the secondary is dimmed

@gino8080 Goos morning! Ah I see, the same behaviour from my side too, when I switch monitors then it dimms. Well would be cool if it didn't but what the heck :D

How did you get the GPU Temp from HWMonitorSMC2 to show up in the Menu Bar? I'm unable to drag anything from HWMonitorSMC2, and I don't see an option to display an item in the Menu Bar.

 

EDIT FOUND ANSWER: Figured it out - Just double-click the item in the panel and it'll get promoted to the Menu Bar.

HWMonitorSMC2 is showing the RX580 as using over 100W power at idle... !!

 

How realistic is this? Or is the sensor unreliable? This card is supposed to idle around 16W - 30W.

 

Actually... the GPU core clock and memory clock are also maxed out... constantly. Am I possibly missing some kext to control the GPU's power?

 

I'm using AudioGod's EFI with some additional drivers for FileVault.

Would you please run the following script in terminal and post your result back here: 

 

while sleep 1; do clear;ioreg -l |grep \"PerformanceStatistics\" | cut -d '{' -f 2 | tr '|' ',' | tr -d '}' | tr ',' '\n'|grep 'Temp\|Fan\|Clock'; done

The results are the same as hardware monitor SMC, so the software is reporting the right numbers. Looks like your card got stuck at max speed all the time... and the Wattage draw is typical for RX580. 

Do you run any kind of software in the background? I recommend you remove all monitoring software / Kext then run the script again. My vega 56/64, RX570 , and radeon VII are working perfectly fine with the same monitor setup and yours. 

Also, when look at your VRAM usage, it's almost 2/3 full. That must be something that's been using your card....

You're right, it was just "stuck". I ran the OpenCL Geekbench test, then opened up the HWMonitorSMC2 pane to see if the frequencies would change - and the machine did the white screen freeze lockup. After power cycling the hack, the GPU core now fluctuates between 460-1000MHz. GPU Memory is locked at 2050MHz. I may have a faulty card - got it really cheap. I suspect maybe it was used for crypto mining.

 

Do your cards report the correct amount of total VRAM in HWMonitorSMC2? Mine adds up to around 3.25GB even though it's reported as a 4GB card in MacOS.

My Radeon VII memory clock is also stuck at max in both the hack and windows (a known issue with the VII). But my RX570 / Vega never has this before. I highly recommend that you remove all monitoring kext / software then do a cold reboot and run the script to check mem clock again. 

with 4GB of VRAM, you will always get around 3.25 GB usable, that's normal.

Uninstalled iStat and HWMonitor. I never added any monitoring Kexts. Cold reboot. Found out that the Nitro+ series of video cards have 2 BIOS's which are selected using a dip switch on the card. Switched it over to the "quiet" BIOS position. Here's the results:

 

"Fan Speed(%)"=0
"Core Clock(MHz)"=337
"Memory Clock(MHz)"=1750
"Fan Speed(RPM)"=0
"Temperature(C)"=48

 

The memory clock is always 1750. I'll install Win10 on the hack this weekend to see if this is a software or hardware issue.

      Faz pouco menos de uma semana que estou tentando dar boot usando um pendrive no lenovo g40-80, mas todas as vezes que tento algum kernel panic diferente acontece, não entendo tanto de hackintosh mas pelo que li tanto aqui no forum quanto em outros sites me fizeram constatar que talvez o erro seja falta de kexts, alguem possui os kexts para esse notebook ??
       
      primeiro erro que tive era porque estava usando um pendrive de 8gb, o recomendado é 16 no minimo pelo oque vi, fui la, comprei um de 32, mudou o kernel panic mas era só um dos erros resolvidos.
       
      especificações dele:
      Processador: Intel Core i3-5005U
      Grafico: Intel HD Graphics 5500
      originalmente ele vinha com um hd de 500gb e 4gb de ram, mudei pra um ssd de 128gb e 8 gb de ram
       
      ja percebi que unico problema desse notebook é que a placa de wifi não vai funcionar, mas quanto a isso não tem problema pois se conseguir mesmo instalar o mac eu comprou outra

      I have put together this simple little guide for anybody wanting to use a Patched DSDT EFI with the same configuration as me.
      This is also a thread to discuss everything Z390 Master and try and help where we can and maybe make things a little better for you. 
       
      A huge massive thank you to @glasgood @MaLd0n @larabee These three guys have helped me and talked me so much and are as helpful as you could ever get, Without them I wouldn't have a perfect working build like I do or be putting up this Guide & Discussion Thread sharing the hard work and countless hours that we have all put in to this.   
       
       
      This EFI and Patched DSDT have been created to work with a Gigabyte Aorus Z390 Master using bios revision F10, 9900k with a Vega 56 but has also been tested and verified fully working with the following Hardware

      PREAMBLE - BEFORE YOU START 
       
      Here detailed, is all the  steps towards building a successful and stable Aorus Pro Z390 Hackintosh, if you are a first time Hackintosher, this guide will have you quickly up and running with the Aorus Pro Z390 Hackintosh. To rule out potential problems from the go,
      only have the disc that you plan to install macOS Mojave connected to the Aorus Pro, disconnect any other Windows / Linux or data drives, external drives from your Aorus Pro. Windows / Linux and data drives can be connected after successful installation of macOS Mojave
      If you have more than 16 GB of memory, then install macOS Mojave with just 16GB or RAM installed, you can later add any additional memory. Install memory modules in slots DDR4_A1  and DDR4_B1.
       
      This build has a recommended Wi-Fi combo PCI-e card installed in slot PCIEX1_3 with its 9 pin USB cable attached to motherboard header F_USB2.  ( ensure WiFi card is seated properly in PCIe slot and cable is firmly attached to WiFi card and motherboard header F_USB2 ) 
       
      If using the Corsair H100i v2 AIO cooler with USB cable connected to motherboard header F_USB1, you will need to enable hot-patch ( explained in guide ) in config.plist for working sleep, wake from sleep will only work by pressing Power Button.
       
      Install macOS Mojave on its own physical drive, so do not try and install macOS Mojave onto a free partition on a disc that contains Windows.
      Remove any Thunderbolt cards, Thunderbolt card can be reinserted after installation.  Double check your BIOS settings are the same as this guide. 
       
       
       
      Following are unsupported / problematic
       
      • Intel Optane ( if you have this, remove it before installation of macOS Mojave )
       
      • Samsung EVO Plus drives ( ensure you update Plus drive to latest firmware to avoid problems )
       
      • XFX Radeon RX 580
       
      • NVIDIA GTX / RTX not supported in macOS Mojave
       
       
       
      Q - WILL THIS GUIDE WORK WITH MY NON AORUS Z390 PRO MOTHERBOARD ?
      A - Possibly, though you may have to create your own USBPorts fix. 
       
      Q - I notice you have the Aorus Pro Z390 version, will this guide work with Aorus Pro Z390 WiFi version ?
      A - Possibly, but onboard Intel / Intel CNVi WIFII /Bluetooth will not work with macOS and you will have to disable HS14 for Bluetooth to function properly. 
       
      Q - Can I use my AMD Vega Card ?
      A - Yes, AMD Vega card's  will work with this guide, but If you plan to use a Sapphire Pulse Vega 56 then please read @AudioGod ==>post  regarding the Sapphire Pulse 56.

      PART 4 – INSTALL CLOVER ON THE MOJAVE USB INSTALLER 
       
      Make Mojave USB flash drive installer bootable.( Video below )
       
      • Launch Clover application, double click.
      • Click Continue → Continue → Continue 
      • Click Change Install Location button.
      • Click Install macOSMojave USB installer → Continue

      PART 5 – CUSTOMIZE MOJAVE USB INSTALLER FOR AORUS Z390 PRO
       
      Replace Clover EFI folder with PRE-INSTALL Aorus Pro Z390 EFI - RX580.zip  Aorus Pro Z390 EFI.zip   ( Video below ) 
       
      • Install ESP Mounter Pro v1.9
      • Using ESP Mounter Pro, Mount ESP on disk2s1 ( Your disk name may be different )
       

       

       
       
       
      • Open mounted EFI partition found on desktop
      • Copy all the contents from Aorus 390 Pro EFI folder
      • Replace USB EFI folder with all the contents inside the Aorus 390 Pro EFI folder.
       
       

       
       
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 6 – INSTALL MAC OS MOJAVE ON INTERNAL DRIVE
       
      INSTALL NOTE
       
      ENSURE BIOS: Above 4G Decoding is set to Disabled 
      if Above 4G decoding is set to enabled then macOS Mojave install will freeze at 2 mins remaining and will not shut down properly!!!!
       
      Please be patient during install, so when install gets to 2 or 3 mins remaining then it may take extra time. Be ready to boot from UEFI USB installer by pressing F12 when install initiates restarts. 

      • INSERT USB INSTALLER INTO THE USB 2.0 PORT  
       
       
       Here is a walkthrough of the full process using the macOS Mojave USB Installer on the Aorus Z390 Pro. 
       
       
       
       
      • Power on PC and press F12• Choose bootable USB drive from boot menu.
       
       
       
      • Install macOS Mojave to internal solid state or hard drive.
       
       
       
      When system returns to the Clover boot menu choose:
       
      • Boot macOS Install from Macintosh
       
       
       
      At next restart, press F12 and boot from external UEFI USB device and choose:
       
      • Boot macOS Install from Macintosh
       
       
       
      Proceed with macOS Mojave install
       
       
      macOS Mojave is now installed, but it can only boot at this moment thanks to FakeSMC and Clover on the Mojave USB flash drive installer.
       

       
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 7 – MAKE AORUS Z390 PRO INTERNAL DRIVE BOOTABLE
       
      Make internal drive bootable ( Video below )
       
      So far, the Aorus Pro can only boot the internal system drive with the aid of the Mojave USB Installer.
      To boot from the internal system drive without the installer: 
       
      Download and install Clover with RC Scripts on target volume.  
      Copy the EFI folder from inside Aorus Pro Z390 EFI.zip  folder and paste it inside the the System Drive EFI partition.         
       

       
       
       
      • Remove USB Mojave installer and shut down and restart.
       
      Aorus Hackintosh should now be able to boot to macOS Mojave, Done, well almost ! 
       
       
       
       
       
      PART 8 – ENABLE IMESSAGES & FACETIME 
       
       
      // UPDATE 21st MAY 2019
       
      Possibly Clover Configurator now automatically populates correct values for working iMessages when you select an SMBIOS.  
       
       

       
       
      After selecting SMBIOS, example iMac19,1 for Aorus Pro with RX580 ( image above ) then go to Apple and ensure you have the "serial number is not valid " message. Done!
       
      If you still have problems connecting to iMessage, test and ensure that AirDrop is working, then follow instructions inside spoiler.
