I had Metal painfully slow load issues in ElCap as well so went to Sierra 10.12.3 on the weekend. I also had multi boot phantom UEFI drive issues that was a problem with my mobo on the F5 bios so flashed up to F20 at the same time.

R9 280x is now giving me 80-100fps on level 8 setting under Metal and looks sensational. Phantom drive issues are also resolved. This is my 3rd Tonymac machine and the best yet!

@Celtan Thanks man, the machine looks amazing. I'm going to bite the bullet and go to 10.12.3. Wish me luck!

So i finally upgraded to Sierra, also bought a GTX 1060 now that pascal is supported. Frame rates are fine (80-100 in most places) but the issue i'm having is Wow is eating up 84% of my processor. I have an i7 4790k. I'm thinking there is a problem else where. Maybe a tweak to the processor somewhere? Anyone have any ideas?

The cpu may use 84% but did you see at the bottom cpu is 70% idle at the bottom of activity monitor. I think WoW is allocating to use 84%, but the actual usage isn't what is shown. If you aren't see any stuttering issues or multitasking issues don't worry about it.
