Hi guys,
I'm new to the scene as yesterday I built my first hackintosh. I finally got internet working but audio does not show any output or input devices in settings and graphics card driver doesn't seem to work.
My build:
Gigabyte z170 gaming k3
Intel 6700k
16 gGb corsair lpx ddr4 RAM
Gigabyte GTX 1080 gaming G1 8Gb
Evga 650 semi modular PSU
Evo 212x CPU cooler
Corsair 400C case

Installation of OS X 10.12.4 sierra went smoothly. I got into problems in post-install as my graphics driver struggle to work. I've installed latest drivers for sierra from tonymac website but the driver control panel showed that OS X was using default driver. I tried to apply fix No 6 from this website , control panel shows that nvidia web driver is enabled but driver itself does not work as I get scrolling lines and Lowe resolution screen when booting into OS X . I have also tried to change nvidia web driver in clover plist to 'true' but driver still not working.
Als for audio : I have selected ALC1150 and 100 series audio ( according to tonymac buying guide my MB should have alc 1150) but no input or output devices shown in settings app. Btw I'm using my monitor speakers connected to MB.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Update: Managed to get Nvidia drivers working to full acceleration. That was the newbie mistake I guess, I have run my OS X from clover on installation usb stick. When I removed the stick Nvidia driver started working:)
Only thing left is to get audio working..

Update 2: Managed to get audio working but only on external speakers as monitor speakers refused to work. Sometimes audio disappears coming from sleep mode, but I've seen fixes for it on this website. So now I'm happy with my setup. 1st ever hackintosh:)

I have used ALC1150 and 100 series drivers from Multibeast. Just one thing is when you install the drivers and reboot, sometimes it shows no sound device detected in system settings. What I do then I install alc1150 from Multibeast again and restart. Don't forget to install drivers with UEFI partition mounted, otherwise it won't work.
I have no audio patches installed on my system, as when I played with them I totally screwed up my my system.
Also one thing to notice: if you got dual boot system with Windows, do not install motherboard realtek audo drivers, just use drivers installed with windows update. I noticed that everytime I play some games on Windows and come back to OS X my audio doesn't work. Devices are shown but no audio. So windows realtek drivers workaround works.

Hi, I'm completely new to hackintoshes, what do you mean by "When I removed the stick Nvidia driver started working"?
My card isn't working, and I've been searching for information all day, how did you get yours to work exactly?
I'm a complete newbie, so feel free to spell out everything for me!

Cheers!

Hi,
By no means I am pro at this, this is my first hackintosh. When I performed the instalation on nvidia web driver I did install to EFI partition as most guides suggests but I was running clover configurator from the instalation USB and on reboot nvidia drivers didn't work. Well they work at some extent because they nvidia control panel showed that I was using nvidia web driver and not OS X driver. But the screen remained choppy. What I did I copied clover configurator to my hdd, the opened EFI partition using it and installed the driver. Rebooted (removed instalation USB drive) and nvidia driver started working. Always make sure your EFI partition is opened. After the instalation check your clover config if your
