    There is a very good chance the issue is your adapter.

    DVI to HDMI is digital which is fully supported by macOS.

    Solution 4 partially worked for me, I'm having a weird BIOS issue...

    Running a Z170 Gigabyte ITX, i7-6700K, and GTX 1060, Sierra 10.12.4

    The monitors display perfectly unless I have the BIOS set to initially display through PCIe slot 1. When I change that setting to IGFX though, the displays work perfectly.

    So I currently have the issue where if I want the system to work, I have to initially boot through IGFX, which means I'm booting up blind. I'm okay working around it for now, but I would prefer to have my BIOS set to output to the PCIe slot so I'm not booting up blindly.

    To clarify, the motherboard display isn't plugged in. Both monitors are plugged in to the 1060.

    I have my config.plist attached, my current fix I'm using is the Lilu.kext and NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext

    I tried to install Nvdia web drivers but didn't work giving the error " this installer is not for your build" But couldn't find web drivers for this build, that's strange as I downloaded 10.11.6 from Apple Store yesterday. Tried all for 11.6 from WebDriver-346.03.15f03 to f08 (should I give the 09 a try?). Actual build is:

    System Version: OS X 10.11.6 (15G1010)
    Kernel Version: Darwin 15.6.0
    Boot Volume: SystemX

    Thanks to https://www.tonymacx86.com/posts/1590656/ I finally was able to install web drivers, but now it doesn't work!!
    Followed the guide on Problem #6 of original post, installed new Clover with both option, but still no way to select web drivers.
    In the Nvidia Control Panel at slot #1 my GTX 970 is not recognized.

    The system info shows only 8 mb vram so I'm back to the glitches before fixing HD530 that now works perfectly including Cinema Display 23" recognizance.

    What next to solve the problem?Please let me know!
