Hi, does sleep work? Can you share your EFI documents? I'm the same as your motherboard, thank you very much.

EFI based on OpenCore 0.5.7
PlatformInfo removed
Hi, thank you so much for sharing the info. Well done !!! Really appreciate that !

I have an old Z97 Gaming 5. It is time for me to update and my top choice is this one. Moving from intel to amd is big for me. :)

4 key things:

1. What model identifier (SMBIOS) did you use ? MacPro7,1 ?
2. Would it be possible for you to share the bios changes you had made ?
3. Does iMessage work ?
4. What is your experience, how stable is the machine running OS X ? do you get frequent crashes ?

1. MacPro7,1
2. Just the normal stuff outlined in the Guide. Can't remember off the top of my head, but it was really just 2 settings.
3. Yes, and AppStore.
4. The only thing I have had to do was to flip the OC switch off on my PowerColor RT5700XT. But that was something I need to do for stability for Windows and MacOSX. I use my hackintosh mainly for video editing (5K 360 degree videos), with no problems at all.

The Corsair A500 isn’t worth it due to bad build quality (uneven plate). You’d be better off with another air cooler.
