Can only boot with cpus=1, May be due to SMBIOS

So I've gotten High Sierra mostly up and running. The one issue I can't seem to figure out is how to utilize all 6 cpu cores. I can't boot without cpus=1 hince why I can only utilize 1 core. I installed with clover, but have also tried installing multibeasts 6-core cpu driver with no luck. If I try to boot without cpus=1 it won't make it through boot without the screen going black or restarting. I think it might be an issue with which smbios I was using. I'm currently using iMac 14,2. My old builds would usually use Mac Pro 6,1 just fine. So when I tried swapping through different Mac Pro profiles I was able to boot only for a moment with all 6 cores being utilized before it would reboot.

Any ideas?

I've attached my EFI file

All help is greatly appreciated!
