Nice guide and build! Im looking to buy almost the same hardware, i8700k, 580 nitro 4gb, and same motherboard. Im gonna be using it with TB3 and audio cards. I see you have a wifi card, but no bluetooth? Wondering about airdrop and hand-off, does it work on your hackintosh?
The BRCM4331 is out of an iMac and has Bluetooth Everything works!
I'd do some double checking on the Nitro and make sure it works easily. I know the Sapphire is completely native and at this point Whatevergreen automatically handles all you need with it in an iGPU setup.
The thunderbolt portion can be a pain so let me know if I can help along the way. I don't have Hotplug working but I did find a way to be able to restart and reconnect my Apollo instead of the old "unplug, power, replug" nightmare.
Also I suggest the Prime 370a II. It'll give you enough power to run a 9900k or a more hungry processor in the future.
Im actually running a Zen Studio USB and my Apollo now. Flawless and fast.
