Yeah for sure! I only did a full custom watercooled system as a project and something to do during the winter early this year. You can use any fans. Cooling has nothing to do with hacktintoshing really....Again I stressed a few times I never took the time to get audio to work but there are other guides out there. You just have to do that in post installation.

I have the same cpu and motherboard but have a 740 1gb EVGA GPU. I the same problems with my last build that it was unstable. Windows is crap and keeps crashing. Should I try again with the way you did it. I have one SSD that I can wipe and start fresh. I really don't want to sell my motherboard and CPU and start over.

Updated! I was able to get Sierra installed but somehow ended up KP. Currently trying to follow another guide (KGP) but somehow the UEFI bios patch screwed up my mobo. Can't POST at the moment.

Did you ever update this to High Sierra? I've got the same setup except I've got an rx 480 rather than 980ti which is unfortunately not supported by El Captain.
