Can this guide work on a build with Sierra? I have a 5820k i7 and Asus X99-A with a few ssd drives and a GTX 1050 SC graphics card.

I have a similar build with i7-6850, no OC.
However, the performance is not promising as in windows.
Cinebench only 956 cb. Geekbench scores 4785(single-core) , 24811(multi-core).

What about performance of your build?

I want to thank you very much for this amazing write up and the share. Using your EFI folder, I was able to get AMD VEGA Frontier Edition working 100% on X99!
I also want to know, how do you prevent black screen issue with AMD video card?
