Hi Guys,

I'm building a new hackintosh and was hoping for input/advice/knowledge about my hardware choices.

I'm specifically interested in how much patching the motherboard needs?
if the graphics card will work natively?
if anyone has had a thunderbolt sound card (mine is a Universal Audio Apollo) working either via the USB-C port with adaptor to Thunderbolt 2, or with the Alpine Ridge PCE-E add in thunderbolt card?

Gigabyte GA-Z270X-UD5
Core i7-7700K
Corsair H60 (Water)
Crucial Ballistix Sport LT (32GB)
Samsung 850 EVO 500GB
Fenvi FV-T919 802.11AC A/B/G/N/AC BT 4.0 Desktop Wifi Card

AMD Radeon RX 560
Gigabyte GC-ALPINE RIDGE (rev. 1.0) Thunderbolt PCI-E add-in card


As a secondary question, i've build a hackintosh in the past and used chameleon, unibeast, and multibeast boot loaders. I've seen there is a new one called Clover - is this a good way to or should I stick with the multibeast way?

Any input would be really helpful

Thanks,
Ben

You'll want to use Clover and install Sierra for UEFI booting with the new system. Chameleon, Chimera is only for legacy booting.
You'll also need to search the AMD graphics threads and check whether your specific brand of RX 560 is working with Sierra.
