@ Kronstudios
This is a good start:

Your processor is supported with an appropriate SSDT.
Soon is going to be native, like new Macs.

Thanks, I'm wondering if i bought incompatible CPU


Are you able to boot from the USB flash drive at all? How far does it get? Have you tried a different USB flash drive? Have you tried different USB ports?
Yeah

I get to the black screen it says "wake = 0" in verbose then hangs

I accidentally installed efi on my MacBook Pro .

I decided to put the hard drive in my hackintosh and try to boot it up. Can I do this? I get stuck here

Kronstudios,
Please open a post in Sierra Desktop Support. The fact that you are using a Kaby Lake processor is now Off Topic for this thread. This thread is only deals with systems with the thread title and Post #1 build description. TIA.

Not yet. I looked at the latest BIOS version description on the ASUS web site and didn't see a reference to the Hyper Threading problem. All I saw was:
MAXIMUS VIII HERO BIOS 3401
1.Improved System Performance
2.Modified OA key function in legacy OS
3.Fixed some PS/2 devices connection issue in win8/win10 when fast startup is enabled
4.Fixed chassis fan’s behavior after wake up from S3
5.Fixed CPU(i3-7350K) ratio item missing issue in SW
