Have not posted in a while. My rig has been running really well. I upgraded to Catalina a while back, and in the process upgraded to a RX 590 from an RX 580. Not a big difference in graphics performance, but I had it laying around. I also moved from Clover to OC.

The mobo has been running surprisingly well. I was afraid I'd run into issues since the reviews of the board mentioned the VRMs ran hot when overclocking, but I don't overclock, so the board has been solid.

The only application issue I have is with Minecraft. For some reason Java Minecraft runs horrible on the AMD platform. My i3-8100 hackintosh with integrated Intel 630 graphics out performs it in Minecraft Java. I haven't put much effort into resolving the issue since I just boot into a Windows partition to play games.

Attached is my EFI folder. Hopefully it saves someone time with similar hardware.

I don't use wireless, just the 1G onboard nic. I'm on android, so I also don't use iMessage, or Facetime, but I'll check. I know it signed me in (without asking) when I logged in with my icloud account.

@Jared Hanson, Just tested. iCloud apps work, Mail, Facetime, Messages. I can send and receive messages on all those apps.
