    Since Bluetooth is working, I assume you have the USB power cable plugged in. I had an issue with the opposite, Wifi - but no bluetooth. Try another slot, otherwise you might have received a bum card.

    The cable included with those cards is not for power. It's for data. D+ and D-.

    My bad, you are correct. But USB nonetheless. My card actually does have the full 4 wired USB, so that point slipped my mind.

    It worked great in El Capitan so I doubt it's a hardware problem.

    I'm going to try to connect it in a different USB port.

    Hi Again Stork,

    I just got an Intel 600p 512 Gb... installed but I can't get the OS to recognize it (My Win10 boot can see it, so I know its installed correctly)... Tried your steps above but no joy :(

    Any suggestions? Is there a config.plist update that I missed?

    I have no experience with the Intel 600p series SSDs. I recommend you review the OS X Driver for NVMe M.2 Solid State Drives Released Thread.

    This is a solid guide. Have been enjoying this little beast of a board for more than 6 months now.

    Just put in 2x980Ti Hybrids with radiators sitting on the roof of the Phanteks Evolv mATX case. Things are running smooth.

    I am wondering though if there is a way to put back in the OSXWifi card somehow? The second GPU is covering the 1x slot.

    I tried a PCIe extension cord and it's a no go. Mobo has an error code of 99 and doesn't boot (Yes I thought I put it in wrong, but it was put in correctly). When I take out the extension it boots fine. I even built a little box to put the OSXWifi inside the walls of the case with taped WiFi/BT antennas in the case. I kind of gave up and using Ethernet for now. Continuity would be nice though.

    EDIT:

    BTW is it worth using 17,1 instead of 14,2? I'd like to keep using 14,2 so I don't have to deal with the black screen fix after every update.

    If 17,1 will give more speed to the CPU, will definitely switch though.

    I've never noticed any speed differences.
