First time builder. i5 10400 + Gigabyte Aorus H470 Pro AX

Built a home computer for the first time after having Macs all my life. It's all up and running pretty well!

CPU: i5 10400 Comet Lake

GPU: Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX580 8GB

RAM: 2x8GB G. Skill Ripjaw V

Motherboard/Laptop Make and Model: Gigabyte H470 Aorus Pro AX

Audio Codec: Realtek ALC1220-VB

Ethernet Card: Intel 2.5GbE LAN built-in

Wifi/BT Card: Intel I225-V built-in

Storage: WD Black 500GB M.2 (macOS drive) + Inland Premium 512GB M.2 (Windows drive)

PSU: Corsair TX550M

Fans: Arctic P12 120mm (they're super quiet)

Heatsink: Cryorig H7

Case: Cooler Master NR600 mid-tower

OS: 10.15.6 Catalina + Windows 10 Dual Boot

OC Version: 0.6.1- followed Dortania guide and Technolli YouTube OC 0.6.1 and Comet Lake walk throughs

What's working:I'll just list what took fixes/a few tries to get working. Otherwise so far everything else seems to be running fine.

Audio via AppleALC.kext

Bluetooth via IntelBluetoothFirmware.kext and IntelBluetoothInjector.kext

Wifi via Airportitlwm.kext- itlwm.kext + Heliport also worked but the Airport version acts just like native airport.

Ethernet via FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_Intel_I225-V.kext

Sleep: works fine unless my BT keyboard is attached. The system will "dark" wake and go back to sleep several times otherwise. I had to turn off BT device waking in System Preferences.

What isn't working:

Mobo RGB lighting control (resets to white on reboot). I wasn't expecting it to work so no big loss.

Other Notes:

- Windows drive has BootCamp utilities installed so OS selection can be done via that to automatically choose to boot to macOS in OC at restart.

- I did not attempt to get the iGPU working since I have a discreet graphics card

- I could not get my NIC to show up using the method in the Dortania guide > Comet Lake > DeviceProperties section so had to use the FakePCIID method.
