DSDT patch request for Gigabyte Aorus z390 i (mini ITX)

Recommended Posts

Hi, I finally made the build in the signature - I swapped the SSD from the old build (2700k) into the new one (9900K) and replaced the EFI with a the build here: https://github.com/markosmk/Pynty-Hackintosh-Gigabyte-Z390-I-Aorus-Pro-Wifi/blob/master/Mapeo_Puertos_USB.md

I also loaded his USBmap.kext although I'd like the USB-C port to work (which he has disabled).

Anyway, most of the usb ports (if not all) are still 2.0 instead of 3.

Also, I dont know if the power settings are quite allright - I'd like this CPU to draw as less power as possible when idle. For the moment is not overclocked (except for the memory which is set to XMP profile 1), I'd like to be able to push it to 5GHz - the cooler is Noctua NH-D15S and the case hase two coolers exactly on it so it shoud hold. Also, you may notice that the hyperthreading is disabled, this is on purpose as audio applications work better with it off.

Can you take a look at my zip and see if you can optimize anything? I just made a donation to worth your while. Cheers!

It appears everything works, including sleep (I only tested 1 minute sleep, but I will do more tests). In basic tasks I get the CPU at 38 degrees (I set all coolers on silent in bios) and the power of 14W, so I think the frequencies work as they should.

Anyway, can you take a final look at my diagnostic, just to confirm that everything is OK?

Here is the GB link (OC 5 GHz, CPU temperature limit in BIOS 90 degrees, hyperthreading disabled): https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/12685287

This is the temperature in idle with CPU undervoltage (still stable with Vcore at 1.275 V) while being overclocked at 5 GHz, a Noctua NH-D15S cooler (single fan) and a NZXT H400 case (with only the front intake 2 fans on). Is it OK for a processor like this?

The max temperature goes now up to 75 Celsius, after half an hour of Handbrake encoding & CPU running permanently at 90-100% load (and the CPU clock flat lines at 5 GHz). Also the max power draw is around 120W.

Before the undervoltage (Vcore was 1.360 V) it was reaching over 95 degrees and the maximum power draw during video encoding was well over 160W.

[ref]MaLd0n[/ref], I've noticed with my build that when I shutdown macOS, the usb remains powered and the external hard drives are spinning? The only solution I found by googling was changing ports of 2.0 peripherals (mouse, keyboard) to usb 2.0 ports instead of 3.0 but my board has only combos of usb 2.00 and 3.0. Any idea that could help?
