Hello, wanna share my ongoing experience in this topic. I was able to run fresh hack successfully based on components below:

Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 3600
Motherboard: MSI B450 Tomahawk Max
RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance DDR4 3200MHz 2x16GB
Video: HIS Radeon RX 580 IceQ X² OC 8Gb
Storage: SAMSUNG 970 Pro 512GB M.2 NVMe
PSU: CORSAIR RM750x

I used config from here: viewtopic.php?f=35&t=9942 to set up my own and installed 10.15.2 Catalina. Works well and fast, internet has through cable, waiting till FENVI t919 came from China.

Issues:
No audio for some reason - used Voodoo kext, will try AppleHDA later.
No sleep, not sure why.
Very looong boot time. 5-10 second till POST, + 40 seconds!!! to bootloader + 5 seconds to Apple logo + 5-10 second to loading screen. Interesting what happened between POST and Logo loading screen.

Update 1:
Successfully updated to 10.15.3 Catalina just ran system update :)
Noticed some debugging logs on EFI, looking to fix.
Removed boot arguments:
1) nvda_drv - Not sure why there was if even in topic where I get config Nvidia cards were not mentioned.
2) npci=0x2000 - since enabled 4g decoding in bios.
3) agdpmod=pikera - as I have no Navi.

Update2:
Not sure if it's relevant but when I changed monitor... sleep starts to work properly and Hack starts to boot significantly faster... previous 27" 144hz was connected with DP, this old tft one with HDMI-DVI cable.
Next changes - AppleALC works, indeed it's louder then Voodoo.
I noticed that 4g decoding option in BIOS cause system to load notably longer, disabled it and added back npci=0x2000 argument
Kext:
+ - AGPMInjector.kext (removed previous and generated kext for my system with https://github.com/Pavo-IM/AGPMInjector/releases)
-VoodooHDA.kext (removed this kext as added alcid=1 argument)
-VirtualSMC.kext (this one was added before me, by previous config editor and as I got cause conflict with FakeSMC)
+FakeSMC.kext (want to have temp monitor working)
+AmdCPUMonitor.kext
+W836x.kext (I believe it is proper for MSI motherboard, maybe not)
+RadeonMonitor.kext



Will add final Config.plist on other day...

hi, here it is https://www.dropbox.com/s/13nai1zysdbuo1t/EFI.zip?dl=0
but unfortunately, can say that when I put good monitor back, it stopped sleeping well :(
only thing I`ve done for now, set display off timer to 15 minutes, and locking mac when I go outside.

Finally I get my Fenvi card, and as supposed... it just works OOB. Wifi + bluetooth. Airpods are connecting and Airdrop works perfectly. Need to find iPad to test Sidecar option.

Adding speed test to wifi in 4 meters away.
