    So I have a Z170 build with a 7700k that is using a CPUID Spoof to function as 6700k and My SMBIOS is set as an iMac17,1.

    When setting up this machine in early May I read different users say that had greater stability with their Z170 board and i7 6700 by switching the SMBIOS from MacPro... to iMac 17,1. so naturally I set my new build with that suggestion in mind.

    I'm hoping that since the new iMac natively supports an i7 7700, I can turn off that CPUID spoof should I change the SMBIOS.

    I frankly have no idea if this will have any performance or stability improvement. My machine runs perfectly, but I'm a tinkerer and it could probably be better. Oh and btw to every developer on the site... Thank you so much for all your hard work on Multi-beast Unibeast and every kext revision. It is flat out amazing how well a Hackintosh runs these days... I ran Snow Leopard and Lion on old Abit AB9-Pro and Core2Duo and it is 100 times easier to setup today. So, Thanks!

    Once Sierra natively supports Kaby Lake CPUs you can remove CPUID spoofing.

    This should be in the next release of Sierra.
