This build is my first Hackintosh. Some component from the tonymacx86 Buyer's Guide, except for the CPU cooler, graphics card and case. All worked fine right out of the box. Fans speed under 800rpm.

Making bootable USB, installation, post-installation all by tony’s guide.
  • Not worked audio from 3.5 jack

Did you use MultiBeast to install the ALC1150 kexts and HDAS to HDEF fix?

At first, thanks for helping in this issue.
At second, clean installation with your recommendation fix audio. But after editing config.plist file ( add serial number) and reboot it's not working again. Sound is like white noise.
Will try later to find out what the bug it is.

Hey. I have the gigabyte z170x gaming-3 and I had the same problem. I fixed it cheking FixHDA in Clover configurator, inside Acpi.
I have a question. My fan is always in 1500 RPM and in HWMonitor I can't change it. Can you help me?

Thanks

Go to the BIOS.
At first tab M.I.T. go to the PC Health Status.
In this menu change all your fans to silent.
I did:
  • CPU fan speed control - silent
  • CPU opt fan speed control - silent
  • 1st, 2nd, 3rd system fan sped control - silent
and mine result is ~800.

Thanks for the reply.
In my bios I have the silent option active but the fan don't change, It is always in 1500.
In windows 10 the fan are quiet, It is controled by an app that come with the Mobo.
In MacOS I cannot control the fan with HWMonitor, Macs Fan Control or similar.
