Below is what I purchased after lots of reading and thinking. My goal is to make this build working as best as the real deal.. That being said, I have read some issues with HS and sleep/wake on RX560 cards right now. However, it looks like that should be easy to fix. Rest should work OOB. I got both the Dell card and Airport (Chinese clone) card+m.2 adapter, so should work OOB without any kexts. Any suggestions welcome. Parts arrive end of this week/early next week. Will be interesting build!

Hey, alex740il,
How did your build go>? what guide did you use>? Any any specific changes to know about when using a 8700 and not the k. I'll be doing the same build but with IGPU.

Have not had time to write up my build.. Was out of town. Anyways, it went very smooth. Only thing I have not done yet is create and SSDT for USBInjectAll.kext (https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-creating-a-custom-ssdt-for-usbinjectall-kext.211311/). But everything seems to work OK.

OK, I got some time to map the ports (I think its accurate, at least all works, did not have USB C device to test the port and I have it turned off in BIOS for now). Attached is my config.plist, kexts used and USB map.
