  • Case : NZXT 710i
  • NVMe: Samsung 970 EVO 1TB
  • PSU: Corsair RM1000i
  • WiFi-Bluetooth: Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 + Bluetooth 5.0

Started from AudioGod's Gigabyte Aorus thread--
Aorus Xtreme - ALC1220VB Device Address: PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x8,0x1)/Pci(0x0,0x4), layout-id=7, PCI address: 1022-1487.
For me I had Sound Blaster AE-5 installed for Windows, so had to locate it and do alctsel=1.
Kernel Patch Added Find/Replace Aquantia Network Drive.
Boot arg: alctsel=1 alcid=7 unfairgva=1 agdpmod=ignore

Bumping up to notify that Monterey is now running under OC 0.7.4 with some issues like Bluetooth and IntelSmallTree.
SmallTree no big deal-- just activated Aquantia 10GbE instead. But Bluetooth is a bit annoying. Also anyone have idea on improving Airport speed? For 802.11AX performance is terrible.
