Anyone got the new 6850k Broadwell-E 6-core CPU working on a hackintosh? I'd love to use this CPU, but I keep reading that it's unsupported.
I've seen guides for getting x99 CPUs to work; however, do these guides work for ALL x99 CPUs, or just specific ones??

Hi, I just build a new hackintosh with i7-6850K last week. It works fine except showing unknown name on system information panel.

Here is an awesome guide to X99 platform: Mac OSX 10.12 with X99 Broadwell-E family and Haswell-E family

Sure. Here is my EFI.

P.S. I've remove the USB port limit patch after generate USB injection SSDT, maybe you will need this to create yours:
Code:
<dict>
                <key>Comment</key>
                <string>Change 15 Port Limit To 30 in XHCI Kext 10.12(99-series)</string>
                <key>Disabled</key>
                <false/>
                <key>Find</key>
                <data>
                g72M/v//EA==
                </data>
                <key>Name</key>
                <string>AppleUSBXHCIPCI</string>
                <key>Replace</key>
                <data>
                g72M/v//Hw==
                </data>
</dict>

Oh yes, just paste it into config.plist -> KernelAndKextPatches -> KextsToPatch, or you can use Clover Configurator to add it manually.

Hi thisisanid ! Your sound its ALC 1150? its working? and how you makeit to work?

Sorry I don't have a skype account, but I still can give some advice for you.

My audio is ALC1150. I had tried many ways to enable my audio and finally found AppleALC.
To make AppleALC work on ALC1150, there are something you have to do:

1. Make sure your AppleHDA.kext which in /S/L/E is the vanilla one.
2. If you already tried some other way to enable ALC1150, all of them should be undone.
(Make sure there is no any patched audio kext in /S/L/E or /L/E like: VoodooHDA.kext, etc.)
3. If your audio device have a name like "ALZA", rename your audio device from ALZA to HDEF by dsdt patch. (You can check it by using IORegistryExplorer)
4. Patch the AppleHDAController. Find A08C, Replace 208D.
5. Inject audio with a supported layout-id by clover. (ALC1150 is 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11)
6. Download the newest released AppleALC.kext and put it in your clover kext folder.
7. Add boot flag "-alcbeta" to force AppleALC works on unsupported platform.

The Nvidia 10 series Pascal graphics cards need a updated Nvidia web driver(s) which have not been released yet. There are a lot of people waiting on the Pascal drivers. So, your choice is to use an inexpensive graphics card for Sierra. (If and when Nvidia releases Pascal drivers, it will be for the current macOS Sierra.)

tonymacx86 will post a sticky thread in the Graphics forum section when the Pascal drivers are release. Note: tonymacx86's sticky thread will emphatically state if there is support for the 10 series Pascal cards. So, if you don't see a statement for Pascal support, it's not there...and don't ask.
