Thank you guys for your replies.

I attach here the zipped EFI folder and a printscreen of /Library/Extensions/
Please try the attached EFI folder.

I recommend putting this EFI folder on the EFI partition of a USB flash drive and boot from the USB flash drive to test fist. If everything is working, you can replace the EFI folder on the EFI partition of your main system drive.

If you use this EFI folder, you should delete the following from /Library/Extensions/:
AppleALC.kext
Lilu.kext
IntelMausiEthernet.kext
USBInjectAll.kext
All the FakeSMC kexts.

@pastrychef,
Thank you for your reply.
I tried your fix but now it does not pass the clover.
Right after I select macOS from Clover I get a blank screen with 2 lines of following:
Code:
Start
Start OSName
_
Hmm... Weird... Please try this one.

I just did a fresh install and added EFI folder you provided.
Everything is working now but graphics are now gone.
OS version is now 17G66(no web drivers for it) and on graphics I have Display 5MB.

Could this be an NVRAM problem? - How can I solve this?


LE:
The OS version changed to the last one after a security update.
After that I could install the nVidia Web Driver, but after restart, black screen! So I booted with nv_disabled=1 and I installed lilo.kext and nvidia.fixup.patch.kext.
Now everything is ok.

Thank you for your replies!

The only problem that I still have is the refresh rate and some screen tearing.

Z170 has working NVRAM. Nothing to solve.

That is nvidia.fixup.patch.kext? The EFI folder that I posted already had Lilu.kext installed.

Are you sure you are getting graphics acceleration?

Yes.

Yes. I tried playing some games on Steam, and it's OK. Some frame drops, but it's OK.

LE: I attached a video made with my phone. I don't know of you can see it, but there are some white shadows of buttons occurring when moving windows. Same happens to the text.

High CPU Temperature Issue (Fixed):
To anyone who has faced the same issue as I did. My build:
Asus Maximus VIII Hero
Corsair H110i
MSI GTX 1070
Intel 6600K

Followed Stork's guide and it was very helpful in getting up from the ground.
However, because I have a liquid cooler (Corsair H110i), and I installed FakeSMC_Plugins and HWMonitor as the documentation here says, the CPU temperatures run very high in 90s after sometime. Fans run high but not able to curb the high temperatures. Overtime with minimal to moderate CPU utilization, the temperatures run in 90C and thermal throttle at high CPU utilization.

The issue is with FakeSMC_Plugins specifically LPCSensors.kext.
This is an open issue and documented here: https://github.com/kozlekek/HWSensors/issues/363

Fix:
As Stork mentions it's optional plugin, simply do not select that in the MultiBeast if you're to run into this.

Thanks.

Any advice for my ghosting problem?
It gets really annoying. Expecially when reading and scrolling text...
I always notice when using the HDMI on either GTX 980 Ti or 1080Ti. I would get a ghosting effect and the screen didn’t behave correctly. I then used the DisplayPort and have never noticed it again. I cant watch your video to see if its the same but if you can use display port on the card and monitor you might get the results I did.
