Hey guys just got a successful install on my build:

ASROCK X570 Phantom Gaming 4 (For some reason labeled asAcidanthera Mac-7BA5B2D9E42DDD94)
Ryzen 9 3900X
Radeon 5700XT
8GB x 4 Team T-Force 3200 Mhz @ 1.35v
Samsung T5 500GB SSD (Moving to Crucial m2 NVME later)


All booting options
[?] Audio Output Bluetooth devices (only tested with amazon echo and Powerbeats pro) w/ very rare sputters if any
[?] Playing Youtube videos
Graphics - 1080p @ 75 Hz on 75Hz monitor
[?] CPU Fans (I think they stay at one speed)
[?] GPU Fans (kicked on for a few seconds in Cinebench)
[?] Most USB ports, haven't tested any outside of ones connecting mouse, keyboard, ssd, and 2 on the front of my case
All iServices (FaceTime video not tested)
All apps that I use on a regular basis (Microsoft, Xcode, Simplenote and few benchmark applications)
Allowed updating my iPhone to latest version through front USB port (took a little while though)
Cloning of drive to another (took about 15 min saw speeds of 99 MB/s+) from front USB


[?] Hardware Sensors (GPU / CPU - Temps, Freq, and any other relevant info to knowing status of hardware)
[?] Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 3168 (pretty sure all intel adapters not supported, still not sure why bluetooth works)
[?] Videos from App Store previews / Netflix / iMessage attachments
Airdrop - because of incompatible wifi card
[?] Control for CPU / GPU
[?] Sleep - Disabled sleep drive in Setting > Energy Saver and installed Amphetamine to stop drive sleep by causing it to write small files every 200 seconds (not sure if I can increase the time w/o kernel panic yet) (kernel panic linked in attachments)
If you have any recommendations for anything else I should check the status of, let me know and I'll update the description as I continue on fixing.

I get the same kernel panic from my 3950X/Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master combination. I don't think anyone has figured out why yet. I have been watching the issue for a while.
Do you usually just shut your PC down when not in use then? I like to keep it on and teamviewer to it from my laptop to make use of iServices and any other mac related software while i'm away on the go but I'm not sure of the stress its putting on the CPU or other hardware since I haven't nailed down how to get them to show up on HWmonitor2.
