Hi everyone.
I have a problem with my new Sierra Hackintosh that I'm building.
First of all I have to say that my machine is powered with the new Intel i7 8700 with the Gigabyte z370 HD3P (but actually I think that the problem that I'm having is not because of the incompatible CPU.)

After the installation with cloverboot MacOs started very smoothly so, having a GTX 960, I downloaded the last NvidiaWebDriver released for Sierra 10.12.6.
After I downloaded and installed it, the PC restarted.
And than started the problem.

After I boot MacOs from CloverBoot, the bar stops at half way and start flickering; my monitor turns on and off and on and off again and again until I shut it down.. the system works perfectly, but I basicly can't see anything because of this flickering.

In Clover Configuration in BIOS I check nvda_dvr=1; uncheck nv_disable=1.. in Graphics I check Inject NVidia... in System Parameters I check Inject System ID and NvidiaWeb.

The only way I can use the Hackintosh is by going in the OPTION menu in CloverBoot-->Graphics Injector-->and Unchecking "Use NVIDIA WEB drivers", so my Mac goes.. but without my GTX 960.

Please Help me I'm getting mad.....
What can I do??

BIOS - Disable Integrated Graphics - PEG as Primary
Use a digital connection to your monitor - VGA is not supported.
Boot with nv_disable=1
Install Nvidia Web Drivers
Config.plist - Do not inject Intel or Nvidia graphics and no ig-platform-id
Edit config.plist - NvidiaWeb = true as per Link
May need to emulate NVRAM - Problem 6 (Install EmuVariableUefi-64 + RC Scripts)
Remove nv_disable=1 from config.plist
MacPro 6,1 or iMac 15 or iMac 17 System Definition need black screen fix as per Link

I had the same issue with my gtx 950 and also with gtx 1050 ti oc cards.
Fortunately there was a bios update for the 1050 card, i updated it, and simce then all these symptoms are gone.

Check if there is a bios update for your card

Bios update, you mean the Bios update of the motherboard, or the driver update of the GPU?
