Hi, I have a well running System (Asrock z68 pro gen3/ i7 2600K (Sandy Bridge), Nvidia GTX 460, Bluetooth WLAN ok. Messages, Facetime, ICloud, handsoff everything running well and fast. - Clover Bootloader / El Capitain :)

I do not want to exchange my Motherboard or CPU this year ....

Unfortunately Mac Pro 3.1 does not allow direct download of Sierra. First tries to change the system to 13.1/13.2 or 14.1/14.2 did not succeed, (wireless keyboard/mouse was not recognized so no login haha ). I kept my El Capitain ...

Which mac/imac system would you recommend for my specific motherboard? -
could my serial number (Mac Pro 3.1) still be used?
Could I avoid the imessage/facetime/icloud hazzle?
Is there a patch that allows to install/update to Sierra for older machines?

Kind regards Marlon

After a little search, I found: there is a Patch which makes it possible to install and update even Machines which Apple does not support. ok I am on Sierra 12.1 now - thanks to dd1
