    Good evening, I had a hackintosh with the X Sierra tried to upgrade to Hight Sierra and got stuck on the black screen. I reinstalled by Tony's guide here and tried all the possibilities of this topic, but I could not. Some installation possibilities on this hardware: Asrock Extreme 4, I7 3770k, gtx 690, 16GB ram corsair, ssdhd kingston240gb. Help! It's been 7 days since I've tried the whole day and nothing .. Obs. Without the video card the system works with a perfection. Replacing the card does nothing else.

    Yes GTX 1070 worked on all High Sierras.

    As far as OSX damaging your components... I guess if you had wildly inappropriate settings it could wear them out quickly.

    Try a different motherboard. Now a days it'd really about the chipset. Asus, ASRock, Gigabyte, MSI... (Bio Star can be a bit wonky), but yeah, they are all the same.

    Hello everyone,

    The new version of the Nvidia Web Driver 387.10.10.10.25.158 a few light lags (much less and usable compared to 387.10.10.10.25.156 version), but solves a problem that many people have long since especially on the Pascal series (i've a GTX 1060 6GB : Gigabyte GTX 1060 Mini ITX OC 6G - GV-N1060IXOC-6GD).

    With each new driver, I test the suspension of activity that creates glitching after the sleep awakening when the gpu is solicited as a benchmark for example.

    The 387.10.10.10.25.158 version solves this big problem, I just tested at the moment.

    Otherwise the installation procedure of the Nvidia Web Driver is still a problem and long (CsrActiveConfig to 0x0 and touch ./Library/Extension ./System/Library/Extension in recovery mode), compared to the AMD RX 560, 570 and 580 , natively supported.

    It is already good that this solution for glitching.

    Have a good day.

    Confirming that Hacks do stress parts more than they are usually, and it's pretty across the board. HFS results in more data wear than NTFS. I have RMA'd a 3930k due to TSC errrors after running without PM for a year or so. That's the part of the CPU VoodooTSCSync (which hasn't been updated since Snow Leopard) takes care of and it was refusing to boot anything.

    I have also RMA'd boards that I tested DSDTs on. There is a very real, but very slim possibility that a misconfigured DSDT can damage a motherboard. You are of course feeding very basic instructions to electrical circuits and there will be a few in a billion that can create harmful power states if not set up properly.

    It's mostly safe because all the dangerous stuff is relegated to kexts and the like. Devs will make sure the dangerous combination of boxes cant be ticked etc etc.

    That makes sense. It's just more reason to get power management working right and to stick with hardware that's as close to real Macs as possible to avoid having to make such low level mods.

    I just wanted to add physically, in the hardware, make sure your first GPU (atleast one of them) is plugged into the PCIEX16 because if it's plugged into an x8 or an x4 then it will not run correctly and you'll get the black screen! X16 is generally the one closest to the CPU! You may need an extender depending on how bulky your GPU/CPU Cooler is/are. That's what I ended up doing. Just sharing some knowledge that took me weeks to find to help out the next guy or gal.
