Mac OSX 10.12 with X99 Broadwell-E family and Haswell-E family



X99Gaming G1 wifi
5960X
GTX 970
Samsung SM951 256GB AHCI
Corsair 780T
Corsair H115i


I install Mac OSX 10.12 (16A239j) with X99 LGA2011-V3 platform. It’s fully supported now we don’t need add FakeCPUID anymore. 5960X needs only CloverPatch.
I update bios F22J Support Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4, E5-1600 v4 series, Core i7 6000 series CPU
The Samsung SM951 AHCI model is fully supported by Mac OSX Pro.


OSX 10.12 Installation Notes:


Set Mac osx Installer (I updated files)
Remove DSDT and SSDT
Update Clover to latest (_v2.3k_r3652_Special Edition).
Update nvidia latest web drivers.
Set patch 1 Change 15 Port Limit To 30 in XHCI Kext 10.12(99-series)
Set patch 2 5960XPatch 10.12 by Brumbaer
Creative Sound worked with AppleALC.kext
Install X99_Injector USB 3.kext and set your DSDT XHC to XHCI
You have to set IOCPUNumber to VoodooTSCSync.kext.

BIOS Configuration for USB 3 Flash drive with clover

  1. Intel USB 3.0 XHCI Mode Enabled
  2. CSM Disable
  3. XHCI-Hand-off-Enabled
  4. EHCI-Hand-off-Enabled
BIOS Configuration for USB 2 Flash drive with clover

  1. Intel USB 3.0 XHCI Mode Smart Auto
  2. CSM Disable
  3. XHCI-Hand-off-Enabled
  4. EHCI-Hand-off-Enabled
After installation you have to set DSDT and SSDT.

I get Script to generate a SSDT for Power Management

AppleALC

AppleALC Boot Arguments 10.12 you have to add -alcbeta
-v darkwake=0 npci=0x3000 nvda_drv=1 -alcbeta

SCALED RESOLUTIONS FOR YOUR MONITOR

https://comsysto.github.io/Display-...or-with-HiDPI-Support-For-Scaled-Resolutions/
Enable HiDPI Mode
sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver.plist DisplayResolutionEnabled -bool true
Set your DisplayProductName
Set your DisplayProductID
Set your DisplayVendorID
Set Scale Resolutions
Download your file then overrides your display vendorId like this.

Example for my Monitor:
sudo cp ~/Downloads/DisplayProductID-79f.plist /System/Library/Displays/Contents/Resources/Overrides/DisplayVendorID-4c2d/DisplayProductID-79f

Now graphics work very well after clover update.We have to set nvda_drv=1 and patched AppleGraphicsControl.kext

X99 is still not "Full Supported"... Don't need FakeCPUID to max CPU speed but still need Null. Only a few p-states and sleep doesn't work properly. Yet it is an improvement.

Awesome job you've done! Congrats! I'd like to do a hack with the Broadwell-E i7 6800k and my Gigabyte x99 ud4. Will your method work for those as well since your headline says Broadwell. You use Haswell 5960X. Have you tried with Broadwell or is there an other reason that Broadwell is mentioned in your headline. Witch guides did you use? I can't find any Broadwell-E hack-guides yet. Yours are the closest thread I can find to what I'm looking for. I would be soooo happy if you could give me some more of your much appreciated knowledge with OS X 10.12 Sierra and Broadwell-E.
Thanks a lot in advance!
