Hi there guys, I read and did everything in this forum and installation guide. I have a i7 4790k with GTX570. I simply cannot get it working. I tried installing with inject Nvidia in UniBeast ( didn't work ) I then tried installing web and cuda drivers, also didn't work. Then I reinstalled without injecting Nvidia + installing web and cuda drivers and of course changing the configure.plst. Guys I am so close, I don't know what to do :( any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Still waiting rather impatiently for support for my GTX1060 card! hate having to load windows to see this card shine so I continue on with HD530 graphics on El Capitan before making the transition to Sierra. I guess thats what I get for trying to stay ahead of the curve in the GPU department! :lol:

Edit...updated to Sierra but continue on the same way.
Hi , How you are using intel hd 530 on sierra ? plz help me

EDIT : Find the solution in the NVIDIA problems topic

You need to search, there is plenty of info available on this topic. You also need to update your profile to include your system specs.

Hello
So I'm aware of the changes that occurred with the new Nvidia Web Drivers. I've downloaded all the needed drivers for my GTX 960 SuperSC ACX 2.0+.
My motherboard is a Asus Pro-gaming H-170
I changed my config.plist removing ALL nvda_drv=1 and nv_disable=1
I checked in clover configurator NvidiaWeb and InjectsystemID in parameters
I also checked dart=0

It wont boot anymore... and I was never able to make the graphic card work.

NVIDIA has released alternate graphics drivers for macOS Sierra 10.12.0. These are separate from the drivers Apple ships as standard, and should be considered experimental. These drivers have been known to solve OpenCL issues with certain applications, as well as providing better native GPU power management for certain devices.

NOTE: These drivers are currently the only method to get full acceleration for NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750, 750 Ti, 950, 960, 970, 980, 980 Ti, and TITAN X 'Maxwell' graphics cards. There are no current Macs with these cards, so support is absent natively in OS X.

If you've installed the drivers before, you may get a notification to update to the new drivers from the built in System Preferences pane.

How to Install the Web Drivers:
In order to use the alternate drivers on a CustoMac, you must first install the driver package.

As of macOS Sierra, nvda_drv=1 in config.plist under Boot > Arguments is no longer working to initiate drivers. Clover has been updated with a new System Parameter setting called NvidiaWeb.

There's a new method for enabling the NVIDIA Web Drivers in the latest versions of Clover. It can be turned on and off by editing /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist to add SystemParameters/NvidiaWeb. This takes the place of nvda_drv=1 boot flag, which will not work in macOS Sierra.

1. Mount EFI Partition
2. Open /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/config.plist with text edit, Xcode, or Plist Editor Pro
3. Edit as shown below:

Code:
<key>SystemParameters</key>
    <dict>
        <key>InjectKexts</key>
        <string>YES</string>
        <key>InjectSystemID</key>
        <true/>
        <key>NvidiaWeb</key>
        <true/>
    </dict>

4. Remove Boot/Arguments/nvda_drv=1 if necessary
5. Save and reboot
