So, anyone wants to buy by 1-month-old 980 Ti :).

In all seriousness, with an ACTUALLY modular Mac Pro coming, I would consider ditching my Hackintosh and invest in one of those, knowing that I would be able to upgrade it in the future.

Just updated macOS Sierra to 10.12.4 and clover up-to-date, installed drivers and working everything like a charm!

This simply awesome.

I'm using MacPro5,1 profile with a GTX 1080 Gigabyte G1 ;)

Still getting ”graphics hit a snag” when using the just released Web Drivers 378.05.05.05f01 and trying to start a game in Duelyst. No one here is playing that game? This happens with both a GTX 970 and a GTX 670. If I use ”OS X Default Graphics Drivers” with the GTX 670 it works fine. I also wonder if everything being red in the game The Witness when playing with the GTX 970 is fixed (haven't tried yet). Works fine if using the GTX 670 both with the Web Drivers and without.

Always something, huh?

BIOS - Disable Integrated graphics - PEG as Primary
Boot with nv_disable=1
Install web drivers
Config.plist - Do not inject Intel or Nvidia graphics
Edit config.plist - NvidiaWeb = true as per https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/new-method-for-enabling-nvidia-web-drivers-in-clover.202341/
May need to emulate NVRAM - Problem 6
Remove nv_disable=1 from config.plist
Thanks very much, its now working fine !
Had to to Problem 6, and after that remove nv_disable=1 from config.plis did the trick for me !
Many thx

One more problem, how to enable HDMI audio ?

Running EVGA GTX1070 SC version btw..

Ok so the new buyer's guide is up. I noticed that it only has EVGA and Gigabyte cards... why is that?

I ask, because I was eyeing an Asus Strix 1070

It's up to you to decide which manufacturer you want to choose- our 2 top choices for customer service and general quality are EVGA and Gigabyte. Some manufacturers (ASUS included) have historically had alternate port arrangements and/or vBIOS which can be troublesome in macOS.

Also if we included every single card on the market the list would likely be over 500 cards...

iOS,
Updated the drivers via the Nvidia preferences app and shut down. Pulled out my 750 and after some physical gyrations (and removing the ODD tray in my case) I was able to drop in my 1080.

Worked on first boot. For the most part.

1) I am outputting via HDMI. I lost audio (as many have had per this thread.)
2) Nightshift worked great before. Now the screen appears unaffected, yet the cursor has a orange outline when it's enabled. (Funny thing, when you take a screenshot w/ grab in the screenshot the cursor is normal)
3) I still am having the clear window with iBooks issue.

Any solutions for any or all of these?

Rock on folks.

Update: The HDMI Audio linked in the post above mine did not work for me :( I started a new thread in the Audio/HDMI audio section.


See attached for details and benchmarks
