A most interesting, succinct and helpful build description - Thanks Stork! Glad you now have one superb Skylake Hackintosh.

Although I only have a Z97M motherboard I found the USB port increase hack very useful and now the USB section of my System Report looks a lot healthier. The patch has cleaned it all up and everything looks right.

I also used your manual method for installing the latest kext as KextBeast refused to work for me. Again, much appreciated help.

What do you mean by "configuration"?

I mainly meant your config.plist, if possible :angel:


BTW, by now i have managed to install El Capitan... but your config would still help others :thumbup:

Edit: Another Question, how did you test the USB3.1 ports?

...how did you test the USB3.1 ports?
I only tested the USB 3.1 Type A port. I used a USB 3 Thumb Drive, and it achieved USB 3 speeds. There is not full support for USB 3.1 speed on the USB 3.1 ports in OS X desktops.

Very nice build, got USB 3.0 to work with different mobo using this useful guide :D

Q: is the "About This Mac" section showing the actual RAM and CPU speed? any chance to upload a screenshot?
For RAM, in the config.plist file, change the Boot > XMPDetection parameter from false to true using either TextEdit, Plist Pro or Clover Configurator.
Code:
		<key>XMPDetection</key>
		<true/>

Hi Strok,
cool build!

I'm very interested in the GTX950 Card.
Do you know if the display ports are working? (maybe both on the same time?)

Greetings,
Sören
