Hey guys!

I wanted to Build my new Hackintosh because my old one got to slow.
So I decided to do this build with OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite.

Hardware:
Case: Corsair Carbide 500R
MoBo: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD7 TH
PSU: Corsair RM 750
CPU: Intel i7 4790K
RAM: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 32 GB
WiFi: TL-WDN4800
Sound: Sabrent Aluminium Stereo Sound Adapter (Didn't get the OnBoard ALC1150 working)
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 970 (coming soon, at this time not needed)
BT: IOGear Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter

Pre-install todo:
I decided to flash my BIOS with Ozmosis because the Chimera bootloader didn't work for me (may because of this i could't get work my OnBoard Sound? If one of you got an idea to get Chimera work let me know).
I took this BIOS settings. They worked perfect for me.
Prepare your USB-Stick with UniBeast.

Installation:
Turn on your PC get into the Startup Menu while pressing F12. Choose you USB-Stick.
For me i didn't had to set any bootflags just worked fine without.
Format your Drive with Disk-Utility and get trough the Installer-Steps.
When your Hackintosh is rebooting just press F2 to get in BIOS.
Go to your boot priority and change the first one to your OS X boot partition.
Save & Exit.
Now your Hackintosh should boot fine.
Follow the last installation Steps.
For me work was now done everything is working now.

This is it. Good luck. If you have any questions comment and I'll try to help you.

I'm running around the same build as you—same motherboard, cpu, and gpu (if you installed it?).

Are you running El Capitan 10.11.4? If so, were you able to get your Nvidia drivers to work?
Also, how do you get sound to work? I installed ALC1150 via Multibeast, but it still doesn't find any Audio outputs or inputs in system preferences.

Please Help. Thanks,

Kyle
