Hi guys,

my setup is:

MSI x99a Gaming 7
Intel 6800K
MSI GTX 1070
32GB RAM
SSD Kingston UV500 480GB

I'm having this kind of issue with nvidia drivers:

As you can see audio is working well on my external USB RME Babyface device, but when i move mouse it's doing these weird noises and stops audio. To be more specific it does this thing when i'm snipping some part of display as screenshot using (Ctrl+Cmd+Shift+4) which changes my mouse pointer to cross so i can select region i want to screenshot. This is the best way to induce the issue but it also happens on a random basis.

I installed my first hackintosh using this guide:


and everything worked fine until i installed nvidia drivers into my system. I have already tried using WhateverGreen.kext but no luck.

EFI and IOreg output is attached

Can someone please help me out ? This is the only issue i'm having but since i want to use this machine for audio processing it's a bit of a drag :(

Edit: Updated EFI from actual installation as I have reinstalled os x
