I just want let you know that if you have problems like the system restarts when you select "shutdown" to power off or it firstly powers off and then powers on again just after a few seconds in infinite loops, i managed to get rid of this by doing so:

- disabling ErP in BIOS
- disabling USB DAC Power

This disables the system consume least power in S5 (shutdown) state. When you stop here you already have fixed the mentioned problem (Gigabyte MLB). In this state you could still power on your system with keyboard, a mouse movement or click when connected to USB DAC ports. To get rid of this just diable USB DAC Power in BIOS. You'll loose this ports. However you should have enough USB 3 and 3.1 using without DAC Power.

I tested lots of shutdowns via menu + fast shutdowns via control+alt+apple+eject it works as expected. ;)
Have you tested sleep?

Yes sir! Just right now ;)
Short sleep wake up procedure (now);
Long sleep (30mins/hours) days and weeks before;

Seems to work like from day one without any problems here with this new BIOS settings.
I even enabled VT-D in BIOS.

Now there's nothing left that won't work. Imagine I even spend my time on my Hackintosh to set dozens of symlinks to other media of ~/ directories instead trying to get the machine running. Hackintosh life can be so beautiful :D
(just waiting for a quality working DP/audio solution).
So long i just use on board audio with external speakers.

Are you talking about 3360x1890 HiDPI (which would create an enormous internal resolution of 6720x3780 = 25 MP!)? Or did you actually reduce the resolution to 3360x1890?

In the first case I wouldn't be surprised about lower scores, pushing 25MP surely creates some reasonable load for the GPU, even when drawing the UI.
No, not that I'm aware of. I just scaled the display in the Display Preferences and it shows 3360 x 1890 as the resolution when you mouse over it.

macOS Sierra 10.12.4 Public Beta 2 is available.

edit: The 9510 Controller and 4100 kext are version 1.50.30 the build dates are both on Feb 04, 2017.

signature line: the audio is horrifically bad.

I will not be able to have a good look into it until much later. Usually Gigamaxx or someone else is able to look under the hood before I have a chance to get the machine up on the jackstands.

The 9510controller kext is still readable, the 4100kext is still coded so no Vega 10, Polaris references. I need to do a side by side print out of the 12.3 build and the 12.4 to decipher which ZNxxx is which card name.

I'll be testing tonight in about 4hrs or so as soon as I get home and get it loaded.

I did notice some Polaris 10 in the 9510 controllerkext but no Vega 10 or Fiji.

That printout should not take too much time ...
10.12.3 4100 kext ---> 9.8 MB
10.12.4 PB2 4100 kext ---> 9 MB

10.12.3 9500 Controller kext --> 9.8 MB
10.12.4 PB2 9510 Controller kext --> 3 MB

p.s. There is a new version of Clover out as well v. 4003, it does not appear to be labeling the RX cards. Maybe they stripped that option back out entirely. I hope this not mean they are not going to be as active in trying to get the booting issue fixed.

Actually, I was going to select a page or screenshot or two and also select the Fiji, Polaris, Vega and other names, find the hex values and then search for them in the new 4100kext. 9.8 mb its probably 1000000 pages total, it looks like at least that many when scrolling through it.

All is good the fixes work. 12.4 beta 2

I edited 2 info.plists the 9510kext by adding 0x67DF1002, and the 4100kext by adding 0x67DF1002.

Yeah, the 3998 has intel HD 7000 graphics naming for the SKYLAKE HD 530.

The Oksarit CU 16 to 36 fix works as well.
