I just bought a new computer with the following specs:

CPU:i7-7700k
GPU:GeForce 660 ti
Mobo:Asus Z170 Pro Gaming/Aura

Finished creating a Sierra USB with 10.12.6 and I'm trying to install it on an empty HDD and when boot clover in -v with the nvidia drivers disabled I get the attached JPG. (Sorry not sure how to rotate it. It keeps uploading upside down even though it's not).

Updated. I thought having it in my thread was good enough.
If you can upload your CLOVER folder from the Sierra USB installer as compressed file to the Forum, somebody can take a look and suggest the next best step in your boot problem.

To get the CLOVER Folder you need to find the EFI Partition on the USB disk which is hidden and needs to be 'mounted' on the desktop of the system it was created. Using mouse clicks EFI>EFI>CLOVER Right-click>Compress >upload to the Forum

You can use EFI Mounter V3 or Clover Configurator -Vibrant from http://mackie100projects.altervista.org/download-mac.php?version=vibrant to mount the EFI Partition of the disk on the Desktop and navigate to CLOVER.

From your image I could not find a definite cause for the problem. May be your USB installer has lost transferring data. Looking at the CLOVER you have uploaded, I could think of modifying the config.plist>Devices>USB Ownership . I have placed [√] for USB Ownership.
Try this one and see if you can reach installation screen.

That worked! Thanks! I've managed to get the computer running but now in multiBeast I'm not sure what drivers to use or even how to find what drivers to use. Do I open another thread?

From your Motherboard Manual you can find out your Audio & Ethernet drivers. From Multibeast> Drivers > go to corresponding menu [Audio |Network ] and place √ > Build>Install making sure to select your SSD as the target and NOT the USB Installer!!!!!

For your Add on Nvidia 660Ti Video card I am not sure if it is natively supported OOB . If not try reading
