Im a beginniner with all of this and just successfully installed a working Hackintosh of OSX SIerra.
I am having issues getting the wifi and bluetooth working. Can someone instruct me how to get these working? I believe the motherboard I purchased has the dual bluetooth 4.2 and the wifi built into one chip. Somehow I can figure out what I need to do to get these working.

Here are my specs:
Intel Core i7-6700K 8M Skylake Quad-Core 4.0 GHz LGA 1151
GIGABYTE GA-Z170N-WIFI (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170
SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA III 3-D Vertical Internal Solid State Drive
Ballistix Sport LT 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400
EVGA GeForce GTX 970 DirectX 12 04G-P4-1972-RX 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Superclocked G-SYNC Support Video Card

Unfortunately, the Intel wifi/Bluetooth module that ships with that motherboard is not compatible with macOS. However, it is a standard M.2 card, and can be replaced with a compatible Broadcom module - namely the Broadcom BCM94352Z.
