Just updated on my Gigabyte H97M-D3H system. Upgrade from Sierra then directly to Mojave. My steps:
  1. Download EFI mounter V3.1.zip; copy the FakeSMC.kext into EFI\CLOVER\KEXTS\Other
  2. Download MultiBeast for Mojave and run.
  3. Download Mojave from Apple via the App Store.
  4. Use Clover Legacy Build to install Clover r4961.
  5. Reboot
  6. Install macOS Mojave. It will reboot 3 times. If you have APFS drives and Clover configured to boot to your drive, Clover will select the Install drive correctly, otherwise you will have to manually select it.
  7. After install run MultiBeast. Selected items were:
    1. Drivers > Misc > FakeSMC
    2. Drivers > Misc > FakeSMC Plugins
    3. Drivers > Misc > FakeSMC HWMonitor Application
    4. Drivers > Network > Realtek > RealtekRTL8111 v2.2.2
  8. Reboot.
For audio, I am using external USB SouldBlaster OMNI 5.1, so I dont install the audio driver.
Video Card was using GT740. First boot, dual monitor doesn't work, as I had my previous nvidia web-driver installed.
Reboot 2nd time, uninstall the Nvidia driver, and all went excellent !

Your Nvidia graphics card is not supported in Mojave. So, you'll have to use the internal GPU from the motherboard. Look for threads with similar problem in the Mojave Desktop Support forum section.

Z97a, ASUS R580.
It went smoother than I thought it would.
1st I renewed by hand some kexts I already have in my EFI.
And it was fiasco...
After 1st reboot Installer bar was going very slow to nothingness....

Then, I just ran Mojave Multibeast 11.3. and after that I started installer and left the room.
When I got back in like 25 min Mojave asked me for Pass! :)
Didn't expect it to be so easy!
Wow!....
No pain at all.

It changed SSD to APFS - so far I didn't notice any slow downs because of that.
USB 3.0 is fine.
USB3.1 with Thunderbolt card -yes.
Wifi - yes.
Audio - built in audio stopped working a while ago(have no clue why), but my additional audio_usb plug works great.
Apogee Duet 2 - yes.
Updated DaVinci to 16.3 and some important bugs are gone - and this was the main reason to update System.

Didn't even opened my BIOS.

Thank you guys for saving me thousands of $$$$$$$$!!!
