In keras mnist_siamese_graph example, it takes 2s(titan x takes 3s) for one epoch with tensorflow as backend.​
  • Camera and mic OK (Logitech HD 720p)
What I do:
Step 1= Load Optimised Default
Step 2= IN BIOS Tab
  1. Windows 8/10 Features = Other OS
  2. Storage Boot Option Control = UEFI
Step 3= Peripherals Tab
  1. Initial Display Output = IGFX
  2. XHCI Handoff = Enabled (In USB Configuration)
Step 4= Chipset Tab
  1. VT-D = Disabled
  2. Internal Graphics = Enabled
  3. DVMT Pre-Allocated = 64M
Step 5= Save and Exit​
  • Make a bootable USB Disk:Noted : Fack CPUID = 0x0506E3 other setting ref to link
  • After install, first boot to system with USB, the write clover to UEFI partition
  • About E2500, use E2200 instead due to no driver for E2500
  • About GPU: GTX 1080 Ti
    • When installed the Nvidia web driver,using Multibeast install SMC Fake will lead to system panic, because the GPUSensor.kext is not suitable for this build,get HWSensors.6.25-12 (search in tonymacx86 or link) and extract the kext files, remove old version in /Library/Extensions and copy the extracted kexts into this directory.
Novabench Test:
  • with Intel HD Graphics 630

Hi, do you think it can also work for other mainboard? I am looking for Z270 mATX mainboard, do you have any suggestion?

I am afraid that I can not just send you the "proper" files, because it's different hardware, I have no idea it will work.
Please post more information of your problems.
First, z270-gaming k3 is different from z270-gaming 3, but they are very similar.
Next, follow the instructions and post your detailed error message.
Then, we can find the problem and solve it.

I think you should consider the following aspect when you choose a mainboard
1. Hardware requirement and compatibility : cpu, memory, gpu
2. Check drivers support of the main chip : audio, video, network (search it by it's type number)
3. Addition : you'd better have a mainboard with bluetooth and wifi together, and need no driver, you can easily find the proper board in buyer's guide

Hey @mikewei I was able to build my hackingtosh with a GTX 1080 ti. Everything works but when I run cinebench I get 40-50fps in open gl. Not sure what it is it works but not to its full potential if that makes sense. I guess I'm not getting full hardware acceleration
I'll run cinebench on my computer and post the result later. I am not sure the graphic acceleration is full, but the compute acceleration is full.

I got 124.08fps in opengl, and the result are on the end.
