Hi people! :)
I would like to propose to you a different way to test our beloved Hackintosh system :) , I am referring in a special way to people who likes to overclock owned system in a not too much exaggerate and sophisticate way ;)

It is a "street way" to test using a different approach and thinking!
If you want use this simple steps.
Software needed:

1) an app to monitor your system frequency and temperature like Istat menu IPG (intel power gadgets)
I use IPG
https://software.intel.com/file/770353/download

2)
free software of color correction/special effects compositing like Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve 15
https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/suppor ... and-fusion
I use Studio version but also not Studio free version is ok for our task
This software will be installed with all default and basic parameters

3)
All high 4k and more resolution R3d video files you can download freely from link:
https://www.red.com/sample-r3d-files


For point 2 you need to register before have the chance to download software we need (no confirm email is sent but you have to fill form with some datas)

So here we go!

After installing DaVinci Resolve free version you will have on Launchpad Resolve Icon like you can see in this screen shot:

Immagine

launch DaVinci app and you will see this:

Immagine

click on Untitled Project icon and you will enter on this great app used in many Hollywood Studios for spot or cinematographic task

Immagine
Previous picture is standard graphical interface for this app
Now right clic on media pool space like pictures here and select import media voice menu

Immagine
now choose previously downloaded high resolution R3d video files (more you download them more test will be longer

Immagine
you will have in this way media pool populated by previously downloaded video files

Immagine

now open IPG (intel power gadgets or similar monitoring app)

Immagine

Ok we are ready to start our "stressing" test
Please take a look to temperature and other parameters in particular way If you are using Sync all cores bios option or similar in your bios settings

Following steps will be use all cores of our CPU and in many situation also our GPU (AMD or Nvidia) so temperature will increase proportionally
ok
select with left click all video icons on media pool, right click and select "generate optimized media"
wait and listen your Cpu and GPU fans ;)

Hi there,

I have a similar setup with Ga-X299-Designare EX and i9 7960X, 128GB Ram, SSD Samsung NVME.

The problem is that in Resolve, all the cores are not fully working : I mean when rendering the CPU is working at 35% max (I see that in iStat).

I'm with iMac Pro SMBIOS, latest High Sierra 10.13.6, and I've tried this setup with a 1080Ti or a Vega64 and there is no change : Core not fully working.

On the real iMac Pro, I tested my Resolve session and the cores go up to 90%... So I don't understand what the problem is.

I will try next week to restart from scracth with Mojave and the Vega64 card and I will come back to you.

Hi @gprime and welcome here
have you tried the method I suggest to test cpu and gfx (high media resolution and optimized output to see if in this case your cpu is used @100% as in my case?)

You can also try different optimization in your bios cpu parameters about turbo section

Hi there and thanks for your reply !

Yes of course, we tested everything, and the only way to put all cores to 100% is in Geekbench...

In Resolve, even with a big 4K session, all cores are at max 35%.

Don't know why, I've read that it's about TSC Sync but I don't know how to proceed.

I will go ahead and restart from scratch the computer, install Mojave, and we will see.

@gprime
about TSC Synch
Have you a proper kext in your Efi/other folder
proper means a value of Number of cores/threads less 1
in my case 36-1=35
post your EFI if you want
I am on 10.13.6 because lack of support in Mojave for my Titan gfx

7960x is a 16 + 16 cores/threads Cpu so you have to put inside TSC a value of 31
32-1=31
attached a kext properly configured for your CPU
I do not think this will solve your CPU problem in all cores load..but you can try :)

Hi there, thanks for your reply !

Yes the file was edited correctly, I'm still at 48.000 in geekbench...

But I have others problems : No USB3 and no USB port working at all.

Can you please share your EFI for the X299 Designare EX ?

I will share mine too if you are intrerrested, I'm with Mojave 10.14.2 for now...

Hi
I do not know if a patch for USB port limit exists in Mojave
In my case I do not use any patches because I have remapped my USB as you can find in this guide
All USB are working fine (USB 2/3)
I have created a SSDT for it and with this no portlimit patches is needed
By now I am working on a big project on Windows so I cant share for now any EFI
but it is very simple no strangeness on it
I will put it as soon I can

Ha scritto dopo 3 minuti 35 secondi:
for USB problem, if you have High Sierra you can use this tutorial to have all working and used USB also inside Mojave (SSDT is independent)

Ah yes you are on High Sierra, no sure it will works on Mojave... And I'm in F1 bios.

I already try your DSDT, it boot and works but still no USB. Where I'm wrong ?

I have also Mojave installed and my SSDT is working the same there
High Sierra is useful to patch your actual USB situation because on it USB port limit patch is working (in Mojave I think no)
Once upon a time you have mapped USB in HS , your SSDT will work also in Mojave..and maybe also if you change your bios (if USB config in it does not change)
(noDSDT but SSDT)
I am not using mojave because the lack of Nvidia web driver ..but usb is fine

OK will try, because we have the exact same motherboard expect that i'm on F1 Bios (I can update of course but last time I've try, the machine refuse to boot OSX).

The only difference is that I have a 7960 when you have a 7980.

I test and I let you know, thanks again.

when you update bios you have to put back the same options you have had with previous one (overall in USB settings and in boot priority settings) and all will be ok as before
Also CSM could be a problem for you with your AMD GFX, with GTX you shouldn't have any problem to boot in each bios gigabyte did for our board

I've solved my USB issue with a boot argument : uia_exclude=HS04;HS06;HS09;HS10;HS11;HS12;HS13;HS14;SS01;SS02;SS03;SS04

As I have no Front USB in my case, I keep only the 4 ports USB2/3 rear + the 2 USB ports for mouse/keyboard.

Seems to works... I will test an USB-C drive tomorrow.

Now I have to figure out the Vega64 fan issue and at least try to have 50.000 in geekbench with my CPU. Actually I have 48.000...

Thanks for your help and of course if you want to post your EFI, I will be happy to give you mine too :-)
