Oh my, I hope that head banging is not frustration with my breathtaking stupidity.
Hello H.A.Y, I've got a similar system with ga-z170x-ud5-th, i7 7700, but with a RX 470 as graphic card. I'd like to ask:
- if you were now able to complete your post installation without gpu glitches of 7700 internal gpu
- if your system boots from HDD
- if you tried apps like adobe photoshop or illustrator
Can’t speak for HAY, but I run the extremely similar GA-Z170X-UD5 (without thunderbolt) and decided to turn off the Intel® HD Graphics 630 in BIOS and go with a dedicated card; a cheap PNY GeForce GT 710. Literally, half the die is taken up with the integrated GPU. Turning it off makes the 7700 run much, much cooler and you could easily OC to 4.7 or 4.9GHz with that motherboard.
I’d bag the HDD to boot and get even a small SSD. Totally worth it.
Check the Apple/About This Mac and see if your card is recognized with its memory. Also, I’d boot /Applications/Utilities/Grapher and try a 3D plot. The 3D plots don’t seem to work if the card isn’t fully accelerated.
I have both Photoshop and Illustrator CS6. Photoshop boots in 1.5 seconds and really screams with this board/chip combo. Same with Illustrator.
Thank You dgeyer for your reply, I'm booting my system with Initial Display Output as PCIe 1, where my MSI RX 470 is plugged. I enabled it and I see it appearing in System Report, but it seems that hardware acceleration is not working, when I try a 3d plot in Grapher, i don't see nothing. My system glitches, I have Internal Graphics enabled in my bios chipset settings with 128mb of DVMT pre-allocated memory and MAX for DVMT Total, and nothing changes if I disable Internal Graphics and restore default DVMT settings.
macOS Sierra is installed in my ssd, samsung evo 850 250gb, and when I boot from it, Clover boot screen is glitchy too, and the characters looks illegible. If I boot, I get a OsxAptipFixDrv Error.
My system is ga-z170x-ud5-th, i7 7700k, ssd 850evo 250gb + 1tb hdd, msi rx 470 8gb
I'll upload my Efi Clover folder in a while, and some screenshots.
Hope in your help
Edit: I'm uploading efi.clover folder and a screenshot
Just wanted to say thanks. Got me up and running!
