Ok, so that is all correct. Are you using any adapters?

So just got the gigabyte model and I'm having the exact same issue with the black screen boot... Not exactly sure how to proceed from here. I believe I did the mac-clock-pixel-patch before so I'm going to see if anything got left behind from it that might cause me issues

EDIT

Haven't tried anything with the mac pixel clock patch, but using my smaller tv (only supports 1080p) the graphics card works flawlessly. Also in System Profiler the working monitor isn't registered as a tv. Is there some way to make OS X believe that I'm not using a tv?

Remove Shiki.kext from EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.12 and change your SMBIOS to iMac14,2.
Removed Shiki.kext and changed SMBIOS to iMac14,2: No resolution. Thx anyways

There must be something causing a conflict, just need to track it down. Have you modified any kext or installed any to L/E or S/L/E?
