@goodwaysarts I couldn't agree more ! Does anyone know precisely why these drivers are failing so miserably ? I'd like to understand what's wrong, purely out of curiosity...

Hello from Croatia!

Just wanted to say thanks for all the information and expertise, since I am a total noob regarding Hackintosh, and this thread, along with this whole forum, made it possible to run things as smoothly as it goes, to the point where I was confident enough to remove -v from the boot arguments :mrgreen:

Had some problems with EFI, meaning Mac installer somehow made another EFI partition not accessible by anything (probably by my mistake), but resolved it by the means of seizing main EFI partition from within Windows and manually pasting Clover folder into EFI folder, most elegantly done, one would assume :clap: :banghead:

Thanks again,
longee :headbang:

I have found a solution for the lag, its Benjamin Dobell nvidea update if you look at his github, you can paste a command into terminal, fixed it for me
Same here. I'm running with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 2GB video card with macOS 10.13.3 (17D102) and was experiencing the video lag. I was able to fix with Benjamin-Dobell's nvidia-update.sh script as it reinstalls the last known good NVIDIA Web Driver (378.10.10.10.25.106). The script blacklists NVIDIA Web Driver versions:

387.10.10.10.25.156
387.10.10.10.25.157
387.10.10.10.25.158
387.10.10.10.25.159
387.10.10.10.25.160
387.10.10.10.25.161

After you install the older drivers, the NVIDIA Driver Manager updater will asking you to install updated drivers. Ignore.

Hey Guido79, did you notice anything strange with your pcie lanes? How much of them shows in sys report ? I have a gtx950 too, coupled to a h170 chipset and I'm stuck on 2 lanes instead of 16.....

I really fear that this is the new state of things. That we are at the mercy of how long we can use the old .106 drivers.

Do not note particular lags (previous version already worked well for me)
Boot seems also to get few seconds speed up
