I build this Slim PC for Windows 7, somewhere down the line Mac Bug bit me, I wanted to convert into Hackintosh.
So I swapped out Intel Dual Band AC Wifi+BT for Broadcom BCM4352 Wifi+BT card.

Also I bought the Samsung SM951 AHCI M.2 PCI SSD, Please Use the exact Part Number Specified in the Components List.

WhateverGreen.kext v.1.0.0

How to Install:

Change the Graphics Settings in BIOS to PEG (External Graphics Card) NOT iGPU

Benefits:
No more black screen issue and No Helper Card Required and IGP Disabled.
FCPX 10.3 Opens and Imports without crashing, Tested BruceX 5K Export Time was around 30 Seconds.

Tested Using
macOS sierra 10.2.3
FCPX 10.3.4

Thanks for the info :: @cyberdevs

Final Cut Pro Usage& Problems :::::
FCP 10.3.X Crashes every time I open it, Fixed by using the Lilu.kext & WhateverGreen.kext
FCP 10.2.1 Opens & Imports without crashing .... Works Properly (if you want keep iGPU working for using Intel QuickSync)

Benchmark Score





Thanks to @ukrbublik, @tonymacx86, @Stork

Edit Reason::::
Swapped out RX560 4G for RX580 4G
FCPX 10.3.X crashes continuously. Hence downgraded to FCPX10.2.1 Further Testing will be done and I will update the progress
FCP 10.3.4 Crash fixed by using lilu.kext and WhateverGreen.kext

Very cool! you're one of the first rx 560 builds I can find anywhere.

Any info about getting it to work and the performance? Was it plug and play? Thank you!

Can you be more specific, about how you made RX 560 work? Because i didn't see anyone to bring XFX RX 460/560 to work with MacOs from the beginning. Does it even work, or you just made a click-bait?

I don't have to "click-bait" in this forum.... Anyways I had a trouble of continuous reboot with XFX card (as mentioned in Post#3). so I have returned the card and purchased HP RX580 4Gb from used market as mentioned in this post....

My question is...where are you installing this? On the EFI Partition of the USB Drive you created?

If you get a black screen at boot how are you supposed to make any kind of trouble shooting happen?
