I'm working with Sierra 10.12.5 ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming, i5-6600k, GTX 1060 6G, apple wifi and bt. The MB BIOS rev is F5. Everything is on stock clocks.
I can't use the FakeSMC plugins from Multibeast - Sierra 9.1.0. GPU and LPC kexts both cause kernel panics on boot. Any ideas?
Thanks!

This build was working great for me for several months until I upgraded to 10.12.5, then the graphics card/integrated graphics both has issues. I was able to select the "Inject Intel" option in the clover boot menu, then updated the nvidia webdriver to the latest version. Now the monitor plugged into the nvidia card work great, but the monitor plugged into the motherboard works but extremely slowly, and at times will slow the entire system down just to render a finder window. I installed the latest "Intel HD 5xx/6xx Graphics" kexts (Lilu.kext and IntelGraphicsFixup.kext) but still have issues. Any idea how to keep the system from grinding to a halt when using the motherboard graphics to render a simple window?

Maybe a problem with hardware acceleration? Look at https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...erra-on-200-series-kabylake-processor.218494/

have you try boot with "nvda_drv=1"?
According to, https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...for-macos-sierra-10-12-5-378-05-05-15.222102/ and installation instructions follow this advisory:

"NOTE: These [NVIDIA alternative] drivers are currently the only method to get full acceleration for GeForce GTX 1050, 1050 Ti, 1060, 1070, 1080, 1080 Ti, TITAN Pascal, and TITAN Xp 'Pascal' graphics cards and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750, 750 Ti, 950, 960, 970, 980, 980 Ti, and TITAN X 'Maxwell' graphics cards. There are no current Macs with these cards, so support is absent natively in macOS."

Am trying to get the USB port limit up. Any specific link on how to do this? I found many different info and tutorial.

- https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-10-11-usb-changes-and-solutions.173616/ the most complete thread about it
- https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/usb-new-raise-port-limit-patch-for-macos-10-12-sierra.202329/ the patch on how to do it with Clover.
- https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-10-11-usb-changes-and-solutions.173616/ some older info for 10.
- https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/10-11-0-10-11-3-skylake-starter-guide.179221/#DetailedUSB some older info to check the USB
- https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-10-11-usb-changes-and-solutions.173616/page-245 : some pertinent discussion between @vaquilha and @RehabMan
- https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/osx-el-capitan-tips-for-fixing-intel-usb.174002/ - older El Capitan thread for fixing USB.

So, how should we proceed?

Final thought : seems it's actually not possible to raise that limit above 15 USB port.

Edit:
6.5.2017 - typo and links
6.5.2017 - updated final thought

okay, so you got everything done and basically want to have more than 15 USB working?

The 15 port limit is per injector personality. I get the impression, you could ask RehabMan about it, that if you have a second injector, it can also inject 15 ports. RehabMan has injectors up on his GitHub, linked on 10-11-usb-changes-and-solutions.

that thread is really great but its more like a resource for everything you might need to do.

https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-creating-a-custom-ssdt-for-usbinjectall-kext.211311/

this is much more practical and actually what you do to configure usbinjectall.kext (it's easy)
