Managed To Get It To Work! HOORAY! Basically Put The File Below Into You EFI/Clover/Drivers64UEFI, Also, I Screwed It Up First Time Round With Clover So I Just Extracted The File Instead So No One Else Would Have To Go Through The Trouble I Went Through ;/
Thank you so much!!! Yes, you saved me with this. Worked like a charm. Once I put that file in that spot and rebooted Bam! Not only was nVidia Drivers (Installed latest first 3x) used but my 4k resolution over HDMI (Edited the EFI/Clover/config.plist
<key>ScreenResolution</key>
<string>3840x2160</string>

FWIW: My system:
Motherboard: Z270X-GAMING K7
CPU: i7-7700k 4.2ghz
RAM: DDR4 16G
Using Corsair Water Cooler (single fan/radiator)
Two SSD + One 4TB WD HD
Keyboard Wireless Logitec K270
Mouse Logitec M185
Video: ASUS GTX1060 Founders 6G
Monitor: Samsung UN40JU640DFXZA LCD (UH1) TV using HDMI from the 1060 video card.

* Also in the BIOS there's an option to choose enhanced CPU of an i7-7700 5ghz and I selected that. Now my 4.2ghz CPU shows 5ghz in Intel Power Gadget when doing CPU intensive things. CPU Temp max has been < 70C and is usually around 32C .. doing benchmarking it peaks around 65C.

First it hung at the Apple, sorted with:
In Boot options setting the FakeCPUID to 0x0506E3 then after install editing in the config.plist. This:
<key>FakeCPUID</key>
<string>0x0506E3</string>

Second attempt froze with the USB sorted with:
<key>USB</key>
<dict>
<key>AddClockID</key>
<true/>
<key>FixOwnership</key>
<true/>
<key>Inject</key>
<true/>
</dict>

Third issue was the Video Card. Also on the MultiBeast options I just chose the latest versions of the hardware. Thanks to this forum I have really moved along each time I had an issue someone here had the same and a search and RTFM here and I'm going again. Lots left to do. I don't hear sound (over HDMI) and Thunderbolt isn't detected...probably lost more but I am hopeful I'm going to get the answers here and get everything going. Thank you everyone.

EDIT: I now have Sound from my TV over HDMI by manually downloading and copying the following .kext files into the locations shown in the image. Using EFI Mounter v3 open the locations and just copy/paste or drag and drop. Rebooted and using the Apple Sound Utility I saw there were many HDMI output devices now and I found the one that output to the TV. Awesome. One more step closer.

Hi, I am French so I am sorry for my poor English...
Evrerything looks fine with my hackintosh. 10.12.5 and Web Drivers recognized. Last MuliBeast and web drivers revision. The 1080 Ti card is correctly recognized by the macOS and graphics (transparency, animations) of the finder are smooth. But I have some troubles with GPU acceleration, no software that use GPU acceleration works : Resolve (crashes when i load a movie), Adobe Premiere (don't start correctly), Final Cut X (no play when I load a movie), even QuickTime...

Is there anyone who met this problem ??? Thanks for your help

I got reboots again with 10.12.5 and AGDPFix 1.3, so no difference there. I'm trying now with the iMac14,2 system definition. I do have different CPU states now, but after regenerating my SSDT the full range still seems to be there, so I guess that's okay.

Update: it still reboots. 10.12.5 and the Pascal card just does not work for me.

hello every 1 i did a install of 10.12.5 to get my new evga gtx 1080 ti ftw3 on my rig 3770k z77x-ud5h 32gb ram samsung 840pro 256gb ssd.

the insatll of 10.12.5 went ok loaded up the installer and installed 10.12.5 fine up untill i install multi beast and the web drivers, when i installed the settings on multibeast nothing seemed to have loaded audio dident work system definition did not change ect and when i installed the web drivers for the card it installed ok restarted it was showing that i was running the newest web drivers, but it still wasn't showing my card correctly and giving me full graphics acceleration after going thru the forums going thru all the relevant information and trying every thing it still dident work or maybe iv just missed some thing....... :(.

i then went back to 10.12.4 did a new insatll (which for some weird reason it took longer than 10.12.5 in making the unibeast install and installing it from unibeast to a point i thought it had just stoped working but given it time it completed both and installed fine), i then ran multibeast and to my surprise every thing that i sellected in multibeast installed fine audio, system definition ect every thing working from what iv selected from multibeast then i installed the web drivers for 10.12.4 rebooted and then it worked after reboot it's show up as gtx 1080 ti every thing seems to be working.

so for me 10.12.5 didnt work for me at all but 10.12.4 is fully up and working thanks to every 1 in the forums for all your help nice 1.

I'm using the GTX 1050 TI with the Nvidia drivers and a 4K display. Everything works well... except little UI lags in larger Ableton Live projects. My screen resolution is scaled down via the monitor settings. Does someone experience the same behaviour? Small UI lags on a scaled down 4k display?
