Hello.
So I`ve managed to install macOS sierra on my skylake PC.

Ok, so here are my computer specs:
Motherboard: MSI h110m pro-d (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0194NEQ6W/?tag=tonymacx86com-20)
CPU: Intel Core i5 6400 skylake (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B010T6CG7E/?tag=tonymacx86com-20)
GPU: MSI GTX 960 2GB (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00SAYDRLC/?tag=tonymacx86com-20)
RAM: 8GB DDR4
HDD: 1TB

Here is how to do it.
To make it simple I`ve made a youtube video, but you can also use this text tutorial.
Link to my video:

Text tutorial:
To make your hackintosh you will need:
-A computer running macOS
-A usb flash drive (8GB or larger)
-Multibeast - https://www.tonymacx86.com/resources/multibeast-sierra-9-0-1.329/
-Unibeast - https://www.tonymacx86.com/resources/unibeast-7-0-1.320/
-Clover configurator -http://mackie100projects.altervista.org/download-clover-configurator/
-Clover EFI bootloader - https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/
-Nvidia Web Driver - http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/105589/en-us (If version not compatible try here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/312525-nvidia-web-driver-updates-for-macos-sierra-update-12132016/)
------------------------------------

When you have all of these programs go to the mac app store and download macOS Sierra. Then when you have finished downloading, go and plug in your usb drive. Then go to disk utility and select your usb flash drive, then click erase, name it whatever you want and make sure that the format is set to OS X extended (journaled). When it finishes erasing, open Unibeast and select: UEFI boot mode, macOS sierra, inject nvidia. Then wait until Unibeast finishes creating your bootable usb flashdrive.
Then when you finish, reboot your computer and get into your bios (for me it is the DEL key).
In the bios:
-Set the sata mode to AHCI mode
-Disable serial port
-Enable XHCI handoff
-Disable intel vt-d
-Disable CFG lock

Then reboot your computer and boot using the UEFI USB flash drive boot option. (For me to get into the boot menu is the F11 key). Then you will get to the bootloader. Now go to options and type in the bootflags that you will need. I used dart=0, nv_disable=1 and npci=0x2000. Also make sure that inject nvidia is selected. Then boot macOS from your USB.
Now when you get to the installation screen go to utilities and disk utility. There select your partition and hit erase. Name it whatever you want and make sure it is set to OSX extended (journaled). Then go to the installation disk selection and select your partition. Then click continue and macOS will install on the selected partition.
When it finishes installing the computer will reboot. Go into the boot menu and select the UEFI USB again. Then when you get to the bootloader use the same bootflags.(dart=0, nv_disable=1 and npci=0x2000). This time don`t boot macOS from USB. Boot it from your hard drive. Then when it loads, you will get to the macOS setup screen. So setup your mac and then you will get to the desktop. Congratulations, you have a mac! Well not yet... Now we have to install drivers.
Go and download Multibeast, then clover configurator, then Clover EFI bootloader and NVIDIA web drivers. Open Multibeast and select UEFI boot mode, then select the drivers that you need. I selected:
-Audio: voodooHDA 2.8.6.
-Disk: 3rd Party SATA, Intel Generic AHCI SATA.
-Misc: NullCPUPowerManagement, FakeSMC HWMonitor Application, FakeSMC Plugins.
-Network: RealtekRTL8111 v2.2.1.
-USB: 3rd Party USB 3.0, 7/8/9 Series USB Support, Increase Max Port Limit.
Then select Clover UEFI bootloader and in system definitions select IMac 14,2. Then click build and install it.
After it finishes go and install Nvidia web drivers. When it finishes don`t reboot the computer! Then go and install clover EFI bootloader (without it my computer doesn`t boot.). Then open clover configurator and mount EFI partition. If you don`t know which partition it is click check partition and your EFI disk should be under your HDD. Now if you can`t see HDD on your desktop, go to Finder/Prefrences and select to display Hard Disks. Now open the EFI partition and go to EFI/Clover/ and open Config.plist. Here select the options that you need. In the boot option I used nvda_drv=1 and i typed in GraphicsEnabler=Yes in the custom boot args tab. With these to boot args i was able to get full advantage of my GPU. In the SMBIOS tab click the wand and select your system definition. Mine is IMac 14,2. Now save the config.plist and reboot your computer. This time take the USB flash drive out. If it boots without it, you can congratulate yourself. You have a fully working HACKINTOSH!
I hope that i helped you. If you have any questions, write them down below.
:D

the best smbios for your cpu should be imac 17.1.
Actually it should, but for some reason it doesn`t boot with Imac 17.1.
Still this system definition (imac 14.2) works perfectly and i don`t have any problems

Thank you so much for this guide justproxydo. I was able to turn my son's Gaming PC into a Hack using this guide. The only issue I'm having is that geekbench only sees 1 core and not all 4 from the i5-6500. Any help or ideas will be much appreciated. Thanks again.

I don't know if I can help. I haven't worked on hackibtoshes for a while. What bootflags are you using? Did you use something like cpus=1

I believe I did use the cpus=1 but I will have to verify once I get home. Is that part of multibeast?

You add this bootflag later. When booting or on Clover configurator.
Maybe just try using my bootflags?
nvda_drv=1, GraphicsEnabler=Yes, dart=0, rootless=0, kext-dev-mode=1

Because I don`t really know why only one core of your CPU is detected..

GraphicsEnabler=Yes/No is for the Chimera/Chameleon boot loader and is not valid in Clover.

cpus=1 is the most likely culprit.
