Hi guys,
Last week I built a new Hackintosh.

Intel Core i5 4690k
Gainwards GTX 970
MSI Z97 Gaming 5

I'm dual booting with Windows 10.

Everything works fine, but when I'm gaming on Mac there are some really short lags every 3-5 minutes.
Playing the same game on Windows 10 or on my old Mac Mini works fine, regardless of the graphic settings. (Network is not involved)

I also experienced strange black stutters and lags when watching Netflix in Fullscreen-Mode both on my PC Display and Samsung TV (by using Display Mirroring)

So I think it's something wrong with my graphic card's setup.

I've installed the latest Nvidia Web Driver on OS X El Capitan 10.11.2.

Do you have any suggestions?

I've attached my Clover config.plist file

Try adding nvda_drv=1 to your config boot arguments.

Thx for your answer.

Unfortunately this did not fix the problem :/

Thank you for support, I just solved the problem.

When I set up my Mac I restored it from a Time Machine Backup of my old Mac Mini.
A fresh install removed this lag.
