OpenCore vs. MultiBeast

Greetings frens! I have a question that bugz me so I wanted to address it to this community. I will call things with their real names, so if I penalize any rules, forgive me. First timer.

Long story short - long time hackintosh user. UniBeast and MultiBeast seems to work best for me.



CPU i7 4790 (non K version)

MOBO AsRock Z97 Anniversary

RAM 32 GB Corsair 1333/1600 MHz with XMP1.3

GPU Asus Strix RX 470 8GB OC

Works like butter. As I am in many hackintosh channels and subreddits etc. I see rise of OpenCore. I read that it's the ultimate way to bring macOS to its potential. I've watched some basic OpenCore installations and I get the fundamentals behind it.

My question is how big or small of an improvement I will get if I successfully manage to install it? Not that it's not good right now, but I feel I am not covering all components to their potential with tonymac...

I'm using it generally for music making and some web surfing. All SSDs and HDDs crossing, Fusion Drive and RAIDs are possible if needed. Thank you if you're taking the time answering.

PS: This post was in a FB group but it wasn't for hackintoshes so I just copy paste it here. May have small irrelevant details that are not needed here. Too lazy to be polite again :)

Blank screen issue during fresh Catalina install with an RX 5700 XT

I'm doing a fresh install of Catalina on a new build following the tonymacx86 guide. I can get to the Apple logo screen, but when the loading bar is a little over half full my screen cuts to black and then the computer restarts 5-10 minutes later.

Here are the last lines of verbose mode before it cuts out:

All of my parts were pulled from the tonymacx86 compatibility list:

Mobo: Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro Wifi

CPU: Intel i9-9900k

GPU: Sapphire Nitro+ RX 5700 XT

When going back and rereading their buyer's guide, I noticed that it said the RX 5700 XT will only work on Catalina 10.15.2+. My Catalina install software was downloaded from a MBP running Mojave 10.14.6. This may be a dumb question, but does the OS X updater download 10.15.1 to install, or does it default to the latest patch (I believe 10.15.6)? If it is 10.15.1, what's the best workaround to get it up and running so I can update to 10.15.2?

Edit: Of course the answer to finding the software version shows up in a Google search right after I post, it looks like it's the installer for 10.15.6. I think that raises more questions than it answers though, since the RX 5700 XT should be compatible with this version. Any thoughts on what could be causing the issue?

Does it matter which RAM I take for my hack?

Is every RAM compatible with macOS?

I'm going to get a new PC and have 2 options: 1. 16G (2×8G) XPG DDR4 - 3600MHZ CL18 GAMMIX D30 BLACK 2. T-FORCE 16G (2x8G) 3600 Mhz DARK ZA BLACK

Also which one of these is better for gaming?

Catalina 10.15.6 Graphic Glitch

Catalina 10.15.6 Graphic Glitch

Hello everyone!

Yesterday I installed hackintosh (Catalina 10.15 after that updated to 10.15.6). Everything seems fine until I try to play couple of games.

When I run a game, no glitches spotted but when I start a video on youtube (Some music) or friend shares screen in discord it starts insanely glitch.

Tried many things like:

  • Installing nvidia cuda drivers
  • Injecting nvidia through clover

How I installed Hackintosh:

  • Mounted Catalina on 32GB USB flashdrive through transmac in Windows, booted up erased my SDD to Mac OS Extended, and whent through all instalation process.
  • Installed Clover Configurator

Here are the photos of PC specs and graphic glitches:

I have added SSD Samsung 850 Pro 128GB

P.S. I'm new here and I'd really apreciate for your help!
