What kext did you use for the audio? Because the audio chipset is listed as SupremeFX.

@colomb, thanks for sharing. I have a noob question:
Any particular reason why you are using the iMac 14,2 SMBIOS setting rather than iMac 17,1 (for Skylake)?

Build started out on El Capitan and was updated to Sierra through App Store with no issues.​
@colomb, I have recently built my first hackintosh on El Capitan, and I am now considering to upgrade to Sierra. Can I just do it through App Store, i.e. easily upgrade like a real iMac? Or do I need some special tweakings. Thanks a lot.

You can't use iMac 17,1 if you are using an nVidia card. My understanding is that iMac 17,1 will only work if using integrated graphics.

On my ASUS Z170I Pro Gaming with i7-6700K and MultiBeast setup of ALC 1150, sound after sleep did not work on Sierra 10.12.2 with the latest CodecCommander (v 2.6.2). However I reread post #1 of this thread: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/fix-no-sound-after-sleep-on-1150-and-possibly-other-realteks.170063/ and downloaded the kext from this paragraph: “ready-made kext for 1150 on Gigabyte GA-Z79MX-gaming 5 and similar motherboards.
View attachment CodecCommander.kext.zip “ . This is CodecCommander v2.4.0 when viewed with Get-info.

I used kextbeast to install to /L/E and have “darkwake=0” set in the config.plist. This worked providing sound after wake from Sleep. However, I have only used it a few times so I do not know if this is a durable fix.

Good modding,
neil
