took some time. but i've figured out the problem for the sleep. it was a Display Port connection from my Dell u2715h to the 1070. still not sure if its the monitor/1070/cable.

i've changed to HDMI output and now everything works great...
I use the DVI connection to my Dell 27".

does dvi support 2k60hz? don't really remember.
Yes, if the graphics card supports higher resolutions, then make sure you have a "dual link" DVI cable. :thumbup:

This build went pretty smooth for me. I'm running Sierra 10.12.6. The only thing I need some help with is I can't seem to get the USB C port to work... can anyone give me some pointers? This is important because my Pegusus R4 I was hoping to plug in with adapter.
Thanks!

The USB-C port worked for me without having to do anything.

Does the Pegasus R4 use USB-C or Thunderbolt?

guys

what is the exact procedure when upgrading from 10.12.3 to 10.12.6 using combo update and nvme kext? i have nVME which is really working during 10.12.3 in usb instalaltion with nvme plist injected 12.3. after the installation complete and boot up to 12.3 my question what is the proper procedure to patch 12.6 kext because the combo restart itself without any prompt so you not be able patch the kext to extension.

The R4 is Thunderbolt, I got a apple adapter from TB to USB C.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MQ26QIY/?tag=tonymacx86com-20

Its not recognizing the drive at all. I tried plugging it in before, during and after booting. But no luck. I'm going to try to acquire a USB C Thumb drive to test if its the port or adapter. The drive mounts on my Macbook pro. Does anyone know if there is a setting perhaps in the bios that would account for this port not to work?
Thanks!

The Gene has no Thunderbolt support.

That adaptor you linked allows Thunderbolt devices to connect to the USB-C ports of the MacBook Pros. Those ports are Thunderbolt + USB ports. The USB-C port on the Gene is strictly USB. Thunderbolt devices connected to that port will not work.

I have last issue on my setup. When I inserted my wireless USB adapter, the system shut off and reboot :)
