So, I'm still under some pressure, but I managed to update to 10.12.4 today. I needed to so that I could use the GTX 1080 platform for some of my renders.

10.12.4 has some new features that can cause trouble with your build. One is that you need a newer copy of Clover to boot with (I used r4049). The other is that I had a lot of trouble with Ethernet drivers that had worked fine with 10.12.3.

Fortunately though, I was on insanelymac, and Mieze had posted a new version of his IntelMausi Ethernet driver, and it worked!!

Version is: IntelMausiEthernet-V2.3.0d0

ATTENTION! Due to possible issues with toleda's audio_CloverALC script for RealtekALC Audio that you'll need to run on post installation, I strongly recommend to delete from the Kext folder 10.12 attached, the realtekALC.kext file, plus, from config.plist attached, delete the three AppleHDA patch and the AppleHDAController one from Kernel and Kext Patches/KextToPatch. At first you won't have ALC Audio, but after run toleda's script, the realtekALC.kext file will be automatically put into EFI\EFI\CLOVER\Kext\10.12, the three AppleHDA patches will be in config.plist\Kernel and Kext Patches/KextToPatch as well, and the only thing you'll have left to do is to manually add the AppleHDAController patch you deleted before:
Name* AppleHDAController
Find* [HEX] A08C
Replace* [HEX] 208D
Comment 10.10-10.12+x99-ALC-Onboar-Audi
I'm a little hung up on the audio portion here - I had deleted the AppleHDA patches and the AppleHDAController - successful install, when running toledas script it adds everything back in (had to run the .sh in terminal as the command was kicking back with a "fi" syntax error) but I'm missing the AppleHDAController - not entirely sure how to add that back in manually, any suggestions?

Copy/paste in clover config.plist/Kernel and Kext Patches/Kext to patch

Roger that - I guess I'd been doing it right. However, I still couldn't get audio working even after the patches were made and the script was run - ended up just using the voodooHDA.kext and all is good.

Current system running stable:

Xeon e5-2683 v3
Asus x99 deluxe II
MSI GTX1080 AERO
64gb HyperX 2666mhz
Sandisk Ultra II 960gb system drive (moving over to Samsung pro 850 NVME shortly)
USB 3, thunderbolt 3, WiFi all work

current issues:

iMessage/Airdrop - work 99% however keep having iMessage "this number is not associated with iMessage" errors pop up here and there

No Bluetooth - any suggestions there? wifi worked out of the box - but no Bluetooth anywhere to be seen.

Wake from sleep doesn't work, but I don't really care, this machine stays on all the time anyway for remote use as well, NBD. I have no clue if power and CPU settings are optimized, the fact that this is running in the first place is kind of a "blind squirrel finds a nut" situation - this was built purely as a Windows machine with no intention of running OS X, then the Pascal drivers dropped, and I got curious.

giacomoleopardo: Did you figure out how to get DP audio on the Pascal card? I've the exact same issue you had in the HDMI audio thread. All worked great on HD530, no sound on pascal...

Looking for some help with the new audio_cloverALC-120_v1.0f1.command I get stuck at the following screen and it never moves forward, I tried a couple days in a row and still stuck.

@giacomoleopardo I just tried to update from El Capitan to Sierra, but I can't flash the patched BIOS update to my X99-A II.

When I try to flash the BIOS, the LED stops blinking after 5 seconds, which tells me there is something not working. Currently, I have version 1401, and I tried to flash a patched 1401 and 1504 bios. None of them worked. I have two same Hackintoshes running El Capitan currently, and they are build 100% like yours - I tried both but couldn't flash the patched bios on any of them.
When I try to start my Mackintosh and do the bios update in the real BIOS, there is also a message telling me it is not a proper BIOS.

Do you have any idea what could cause the problem?
I have also tried different USB Sticks and my patched BIOS name was X99A2.CAP as in your tutorial.

Damn :(
Thanks for some help!!
